Villa Elia is a beautiful property that was originally built as a family home – giving it the space, level of comfort and ambiance not normally found in a purpose-built holiday home. The villa stands in four acres of lovely grounds at the end of a private country lane and is not overlooked. Surrounded by lawns, flowering shrubs, pine and citrus trees, it provides a peaceful, private and secluded oasis - yet has the convenience of being only a five minute drive from huge sandy beaches and a vast selection of restaurants, tavernas and shops.
The sunny main terrace leads onto the pool terrace with its substantial sparkling pool, shady pergola, drinks cooler, and stunning views. To the side of the villa is another terrace with a tented roof and full size dining table and chairs - the perfect place for eating with its fabulous backdrop of the bay on one side and the harbour and Zante Town on the other. There is also a third, raised terrace in the garden.
Inside the property is a spacious open plan living area with a large, comfortably furnished lounge, satellite flat screen television with full SKY channels, DVD player and music system (bring your iPod as there is a hook up via the amplifier!). You’ll also find some homely touches like bookshelves loaded with books, a selection of board games and a great choice of films on DVD. There’s even a wifi connection.
The farmhouse style kitchen has a table that seats six and lots of storage, plus two fridge freezers, a full sized oven and a microwave. Elia really is a home from home, and comes fully equipped with everything you could need – including the kitchen sink! There is a vegetable garden where you can pick your own.
Zakynthos is proud to be the first Marine Park protected area in the Mediterranean due to its beaches being the chosen nesting place of the caretta caretta (turtles). As a result, all development in the Park is forbidden, allowing Elia to enjoy wonderful solitude whilst at the same time benefiting from the convenience of nearby beaches and resorts.
Zakynthos, or Zante as it is more commonly known, is also referred to as the ‘Flower of the Ionian’ in recognition of the island’s exceptional beauty. The locals are renowned for their true Greek hospitality, which no doubt accounts for why so many holidaymakers return to the island time and time again.
Geographically the island is the most southern of the six Ionian Islands and is located off western mainland Greece. It has a Mediterranean climate with long hot summers and warm wet winters (making it very green and fertile).
The capital Zakynthos Town with its shops, museums, restaurants, bars and outdoor cinema, is architecturally extremely attractive and full of the influence and culture of its Italian ancestors.
All of the bedrooms are roomy and air conditioned. The master bedroom has a double bed, separate walk-in wardrobe and en suite bathroom complete with wet room and shower. Bedroom two has full sized bunk beds (suitable for adults or children) and a single bed (which allows more flexible sleeping arrangements) and a built-in wardrobe, with access through French windows onto a terrace at the back of the villa. The third bedroom has a double bed and a built-in wardrobe with access via French windows to the terrace. Both these bedrooms share the adjacent bathroom with its full sized bath and shower. All of the main windows throughout the house are fitted with mosquito blinds and shutters....moreless

Villa Elia sits at the head of what is known locally as the ‘hidden valley’ - an unpopulated fold in the hills between the beach resorts of Kalamaki and Argassi, and a completely unspoilt area of the island. This is glorious walking country, where you can wander amongst the olive groves and pine woods, with unexpected and lovely sea views at every turn or, if you’re feeling more adventurous, you can walk the length of the valley to the sea.
The villa's enviable setting in an elevated position within Zante’s National Marine Park (rental villas within the National Park are few and far between due to recent conservation laws) gives it almost 360º of stunning panoramic sea views - across the bay in one direction, over the valley in another and towards the harbour and Kefalonia in yet another. You’re also only a five minute drive from vast soft sandy beaches, and the sophisticated shops, bars and restaurants of Zakynthos Town.
