HOME FROM HOME: This little cottage with its continued 5 star rating is presented in immaculate condition. Its in a quiet location and brings visitors back again and again, once you have unpacked you can sit back and enjoy your lovely surroundings in peace and quiet, with a nice cup of English Tea, Coffee, Beer or a Glass of local Red or White Wine (all supplied with our compliments on arrival) a real home from home you will want to return to.

Sample the local cuisine, we have two lovely resaurants within walking distance serving excellent food and wine at reasonable prices. Our village restaurant is within walking distance (5 mintues away) and so is Dennis Tavern (in the next village of Lithakia) which is a little further on foot but if you dont fancy the walk we are always happy to drive you and they always bring you back to the cottage free of charge after you have been wined and dined in their lovely restaurant. There are also many other recommended restaurants to make your holiday truly memorable. English owners are available for any advice on where to eat drink and visit.

ZAKYNTHOS WALKS: The walks on Zakynthos are some of the best in The Mediterranean. The routes usually follow the tracks used by the olive farmers and more often than not you will not come across anyone on a walk of 15 kilometres. In Springtime the hillsides are covered with many varieties of wild flowers and there are a wide variety of beautiful birds(perfect for birdwatchers) complimenting this amazing scenery. There are stunning views of the mountains and the crystal clear waters of the ionion sea, dramtatic cliffs and caves, the walks on the Island are amazing and not to be missed.
Gordon has more than 25 years experience walking the hillsides of Zakynthos and will be more than happy to supply you with detailed maps of walks individually graded so that you can pick which walk would suit your requirements, accompany you on a walk, or take you to the starting point of each walk so you can explore on your own.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1987

About the owner: Both originally from Stoke-On-Trent, Staffordshire, Married in 1972, settled in Portsmouth. Gordon joined the navy aged 15, then left 10 years later and joined the police in Hampshire and became a police dog handler. He took early retirement in 2003 and joined the post office until moving to Zakynthos. Chrissy trained as a secretary and worked in various secretarial/administration/management roles over the years, her last position was an accounts manager for a small financial services brokerage.

Why the Owner Chose Pantokratoras, Greece:
Our little cottage is unique and has the 'wow' factor. We have been told that the pictures are a very true representation. Situated in the quiet village of Pantokratoras amongst olive groves with several sitting areas to either catch the sun or the shade, whichever visitors like the most. As the sun goes down sit and watch the swallows come and drink from the pool in our lovely comfy 'bikini bottom'. The cottage has everything you need inside, its lovely light and airy and immaculate throughout. The cottage is painted every year and is presented in pristine condition. We have had some amazing guests over the years several who have celebrated their birthdays and anniversaries and many who return year after year. We have also had several honeymoon couples to stay - our eldest daughter got married in Zakynthos in July 2013 and our youngest married in 2016 the cottage was her and her husbands honeymoon retreat. We hosted both of the wedding receptions in the grounds of Mountain View. We love our little cottage and we hope that you will too.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
As soon as we saw the small sunny olive grove in Pantokratoras we fell in love with it and couldnt wait to buy it. With view towards the mountains what we originally bought has changed over the years as we have lovingly filled the gardens with various plants and flowers and created our own little oasis in the middle of Pantokratoras. We still have 15 olive trees remaining which produce beautiful olive oil every year. We always wave our guests off with a small sample of our recently harvested olive oil just the best tasting for salads.
