“A Bit of A Let-Down”
Reviewed July 30, 2009

Not really a family place; we had topless sunbathers all day, every day, at the pool. Our teenage son was embarrassed so we asked the rep to have a word, but she was un-co-operative, so we tended not to use the pool. So, as a family destination, it's OK if you have a rather liberal attitude to semi-nudity. Basically it's illegal to go topless in Greece, especially in a family environment but the rep couldn't cope with the complaint.
There are 2 blocks of apartments with 2 apartments in each block. We stayed in the higher block. I would recommend the lower block as the German Youth Hostel that is within 25 metres of the upper block like to play music well into the night, and also play in their pool late into the night.Building work was also an ongoing issue in the German Hostel's grounds. But, hey, who minds the noise of builders while on holiday.
Forget cooking a meal, the standard of kitchen equipment is very poor. Not even a toaster. You will have a problem even making toast, we had to improvise.
The apartments are in a average position considering this part of Greece, as the wider Peloppenese is amazing.
If I was you I wouldn't accept the blurb that sells the place, and I recommend that you look elsewhere.

Stunning views across olive groves to the sea.

Good sized pool and deck area with sun loungers/sun canopies -an excellent place to enjoy the views, relax and read a book. Pool filter was not on all the time - the water was crystal clear, but there were often bugs etc. in the pool. Otherwise the pool was great.

The villas are surrounded by olive trees in a very peaceful location. Except for the other Zeus villa the nearest villa was around 50m away. 2 nights there were people talking outside/playing music until late at night. If you closed the windows (and put air conditioning on) you could not hear them. (Air conditioning is in bedrooms only.)

It is around 5 mins walk to the beach down a dirt track through the olives - there are a few traveras near the beach - but we found the restaurants in the main town (10 mins car drive) to server better food.

The apartments have balconies on all sides so you can be in shade or sun. The living room/kitchen is a good size. Kitchen has basic kettle, saucepans, plates etc but the cooker is only slightly bigger than the average microwave so a bit limiting if you wanted to stay in and cook.

Zeus Villas consists of 2 villas divided into 4 apartments. We stayed in the top floor of the "upper house". I understand the other apartments have identical layouts, but this probably has the best views and catches more breeze. (For booking information: No.1 - bottom floor, lower villa; No. 2 - top floor, lower villa; No. 3 - upper floor, upper villa; No. 4 - lower floor, upper villa).

We booked through Simply Travel and were very happy with the service provided in Greece. The rep. met us and the airport and helped us with car hire and visited later in the day to give some more advice. She was on call if we needed any help. They provided a cot and high chair, a welcome pack with some basic foods, milk and wine, and a folder with useful information about places to visit. Local supermarket was not open on Sundays - so the welcome pack was particularly welcome!

Car hire was included with the package. We opted to upgrade to a grade D (£90 - Renault Megane) as we had 4 + baby. When we arrived they offered to give us a mini-van. While the extra space may have been better for those in the back of the car I am glad we did not get the bigger car with the narrow roads.

I would advise you to check what accident excess is included with the car insurance before you get to Greece. We were told it at the airport by Europcar is usually €700. Our rep. said someone had an accident (not their fault) and still had to pay the excess. We paid an extra €100 (bartered down from €120!) to reduce the excess to €50. We were not provided with any paperwork talking about excess so I am not sure if this was the Europcar sales person earning some extra money on the side.
