Martha's Cottage is located in a quiet rural location but within easy reach of local beaches, shops and bars.

Within walking distance there is a local restaurant, supermarket, petrol station and bus stops for local buses.

In the next village of Lithakia, which again is within walking distance, there is another couple of good restaurants, plus a post office.

The area around the cottage is very quiet so that you can enjoy relaxing in the garden with views towards the mountains.

The cottage is fully equipped with supplies of linen and towels for the pool.If you enjoy walking there are lots of little country lanes winding through the village through the olive groves and you can walk to the olive factory which is a 5 minute walk from the cottage and see how zakynthian olive oil is made and may be take home a bottle or two it is said to be the best olive oil to be produced through out Greece.As you walk around the village you will often see chickens ,sheep and goats all trotting about freely it never ceases to amaze me how laid back this Island is you will love it !!

Lovely quiet cottage in good location

  • 5 of 5

Sandra and Dave are lovely people and made us very welcome. Dave even met me at the airport and explained how everything worked at the cottage. The interior of the cottage was immaculate and spotless and we loved it. There is an elevated circular swimming pool in the rear garden which was extremely clean and well maintained. It was a welcome relief to take a cooling dip from the hot Greek sun. There is a very pleasant panoramic view of the mountains when sitting outside on the verandah and the whole atmosphere is one of tranquility and beauty.

Far Exceeded Our Expectations. This Place Is Amazing 😊

  • 5 of 5

I'd read the reviews about the Cottage, so had pretty high expectations. What I hadn't expected was the level of friendliness, helpfulness and hospitalityof Dave and Sandra.

Dave met us at the airport, took us to a no-fuss, straight up hire car dealer he knew....Foxy..who sorted us out with a diesel Nissan Micra. It wasn't top of the range or brand new, but one you didn't have to worry about the odd scratch or ding, which would cause you extra charges.

From there, off to the cottage, where Dave showed us round, showed us how everything worked, and, although their home was just next door, they didn't interfere in any way, but let us know they were there if we needed them.

The place had everything you could possibly need...well equipped kitchen, cooker, microwave, kettle, toaster, washing machine.

There were plenty of towels...some for bathing and some for the beach.

The pool was great, loads of sunloungers, great terrace, and pagoda in the garden.

For the first time ever, we didn't need to go shopping immediately. Dave and Sandra had kindly supplied us with water, bread, milk, tea coffee, cereal, biscuits, even beer and wine.

These are genuine salt of the earth people, who simply can't do enough for you.

I would recommend Martha's Cottage to anyone. We had the best week ever, in a beautiful, peaceful surrounding...close enough to shops, bars, restaurants and beaches, but far enough away to not even hear anything, surrounded by beautiful olive trees, overlooked by a fantastic mountain view

.

Thanks again Dave and Sandra. I will definitely be back next year xxxx

Very well laid out charming bungalow - a very comfortable home from home

  • 5 of 5

Great location close to a number of super beaches and tavernas with great food at reasonable prices.

The owners Dave and Sandra are very helpful and couldn't do enough for us.

The pool is very is warm and we spent many hours enjoying a good splash around.

The bedrooms have great air conditioning with makes them very comfortable to sleep in.

The kitchen facilities have everything you need and there is a good lounge area with a wide screen TV.

We fully recommend Marthas Cottage - you won't be disappointed.

Lovely cottage, great location

  • 5 of 5

Dave and Sandra are a lovely couple, met us from the airport and had a welcome pack in the cottage for us - such a lovely touch. The cottage is in a lovely location, away from the more crowded resorts which suited us perfectly. Easy to go to all parts of the island, nowhere more than an hour away which is ideal on holiday! Cottage had everything we needed and the pool was bliss in the searing heat. Dave & Sandra also kindly allowed us to stay longer on our last day as we had an evening flight - such a lovely touch. Would highly recommend. Thanks x

A lovely peaceful holiday

  • 5 of 5

Martha's cottage is in a beautiful location with mountain views and only a short distance from beaches with clear blue waters and great restraunts. The homely cottage was so clean and equipped with everything we could possibly need during our stay including wifi. The garden was ideal for families complete with a clean swimming pool and even a stone barbeque. We could not have asked for better hosts than Dave and Sandra who made us feel so welcome and really made the holiday feel special. They provided us with everything we could have needed and even gave us great advice on places to eat and activies to do.

I would highly recommend marthas cottage to anyone looking to go to the island of zakynthos. Thank you for everything Dave and Sandra!!!!

5 star care and 5 star peace at Martha's Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Martha's Cottage was perfect for our 2 week break. We came needing rest and refreshment and that is exactly what we got and more !

Dave and Sandra really made us feel at home and the little basket of groceries (and a bottle of wine) were most welcome. The cottage was spotless, the beds and towels changed twice during our visit,and the pool cleaned daily - real 5 star care !

Beaches, boat trips, turtle spotting, shops -.all just 5 minutes away. But the great blessing is that once you get back to the cottage it feels like a million miles from everywhere. The pool and the garden are just so peaceful.

Favourite beach Agios Sostis - super place with a lovely laid back feel - and the Syrtaki restaurant ! Excellent food, brilliant waiters, and amazing value for money.

We have had a great holiday and can't wait to return.
