Guestbook comments from the manager

"We had a fabulous fortnights holiday at Villa Alexia in August 2011. The villa was spacious and comfortable and suited us and our two girls (aged 15 and 12) perfectly. The villa is in a very quiet and rural location even though it is advertised as Laganas. There is a small shop In Agrillia within 10 minutes walk for essentials but a car is recommended to get the most out of your holiday. The best large supermarket is the Spar on the road to the water park (10 mins drive). Water park was great. Beaches good. We were surprised how close the villa was to the airport however the noise from the occasional take off and landing was not intrusive. The management company were attentive and ensured that we had everything we needed - in fact the one or two items that we felt were missing were provided while we were there. The BBQ was brilliant and we used in several times otherwise Kalamaki was good for a choice of restaurants and Tavernas - taxi there from the small taxi rank at the shop in Agrillia. (8 Euros) Alternatively there were tavernas in the village (on main road) that provided also good Greek food for takeaway."

Value: Excellent, Met expectations: Exceeded them, Recommend: Yes, Overall: Excellent

Fantastic Villa, great setting.

  • 5 of 5

Having stayed in villas all across Greece and Spain this really was one of the best, completely living up to our expectations and exactly as described.

The location is perfect , very quiet but only a short taxi or car ride from Kalamaki.

There is a very good supermarket( Agrilla supermarket at the top of the road) within walking distance and a couple of bigger ones a short car ride away .

The yakinthos hotel and bar at the top of the road next to the Agrilla supermarket is great for a cold beer and light snack and Rodi's just a few minutes walk further on is a great setting with a very good and reasonably priced menu - as well as being within walking distance of the villa.

For everything else you really do need a car - the beach at Laganas is fine if you stay away from the Far end where the strip is - but isn't within walking distance of the villa.

Kalamaki beach is much quieter but has everything you would need and is more family orientated.lots of great places to eat in Kalamaki but especially Parthenon, the Family ( for the Greek night ) , Michaelos and for a drink and for some live music - The Venue, or cocktails at the very cool cave bar .

Alexandra the great bar is very cool and the people are lovely .

Plenty of other beaches but we found Banana beach in Vasilikos was the best by far - beautiful beach with great water sports and 2 very good restaurants that serve food and drink To you're subbed if you want or in the restaurant - it's about a 30 minute car ride away.

Only one small issue with water when we were at the villa but Costas the pool man was great and all sorted very quickly .

Would not hesitate to recommend this villa to a couple or family .

Make sure you take full advantage of the BBQ and the pool - which you can do late into the evening as the outside areas are so well lit.

Island and villa were fab and will definitely be back.

Villa Alexia

  • 5 of 5

I would like to thoroughly recommend this beautiful villa. If you are looking for a quiet base in a very picturesque location then this is ideal. Whilst you are a bit of a distance from Lagana and Kalmaki (approx. 25 minute walk to the main part of Lagana) you will appreciate this. We arrived before the season had really started which at first thought we thought would restrict us a bit. On the contrary. we had everything to ourselves, including the lovely beaches nearby. St Nicolas beach and Banana beach were only a short drive away and they were empty. The actual villa itself was immaculate. Clean, and well equipped with fantastic views of the olive groves and mountains in the distance. The pool was regularly cleaned and any problems were dealt with immediately.(not that there were many).

A walk out of the villa turning left and left at the crossroad takes you up to the main road, approx 15 minutes. where you will find a well stocked supermarket with all you will need. They are lovely people working there offering fresh produce, home made red and white wine and olive oil at a ridiculously cheap price. Talk to them nicely and they will even deliver for you. I would definitely recommend that you hire a car whilst you are there. Opposite the supermarket is the Twins car rental. we hired a VW Up for about 40 euro a day with insurance. Turn right at the supermarket and walk about 10 mins and you will come to a lovely Greek restaurant. It is run by a lady called Nicky and her family and by the time you leave you will feel like family. Would I return? get me a flight now! Thanks to all involved in making our holiday so memorable. Tim & Teresa.

Villa Alexia

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful villa, clean, airy, very spacious and in a quiet area yet only minutes drive away from Kalamaki and Laganas (don't visit the latter in the 'season' if you expect any peace and quiet, it's 18-30 crazy!).

Pool lovely, and a god-send as was mid 30's+ every day, cleaned at least twice during our stay. Air conditionining a must and very welcome.

Three day inclusive car hire was a nice touch, we extended for the entire week and I'd recommend it, although if there are more than three of you (unless two very small children) it is a squeeze and I'd suggest upgrading to something bigger.

We did a bit of touring the island, driving up to St Nicholas Port in the north and taking a small boat trip out to the blue caves, and then later in the week down to Vassilikos to visit Banana Beach (part of a beautiful 3+km sandy beach that is very clean, much quieter than Laganas and Kalamaki and has lovely sun-beds/shades for a reasonable 6 Euro's for two for the day).

Food generally very good, Zepos down by Kalamaki beach is highly recommended and the best meal we had for the whole week away was at Appollonian on the main road through Tsilivi, which as a resort is also well worth a visit, and has great water sports (we tried the jet ski-ing which although enjoyable was a little steep at 60 Euro's for ten minutes for 2 jet skis!).

We had a wonderful week away and Villa Alexia was the perfect home away from home to use as a base, would definitely recommend it to anyone, perfect for families, couples, but with a double and twin bedroom 4 is probably the limit although there is a sofa bed).

Fantastic holiday just had to write a review

The villa was clean, immaculate and well maintained, the pool was superb, the kids loved it, the pool guy Mike and Lisa from the villa management very friendly and helpful.

The temperature was in the thirtys, so I found the air conditioning was just the trick especially at night for a perfect nights sleep.

I tried the home made wine (as recommended by Jan L), from the agrilla supermarket and got a real taste for it, the shop owners were so welcoming and very genuine people.

`Bon appetite` opposite `supermarket Dennis` laganos has to be visited, the food was excellent and at very good prices (we became regulars) .

We only booked for a week so we didn`t do enough sight seeing, especially as we enjoyed being at the villa and the beach so much.

so next year Zante, Villa Alexia and a fortnight.

Villa Alexia

  • 5 of 5

This villa is exactly as described in the advert. Very quite location and the pool was much needed and very well maintained. The villa was well equipped (with the exception of BBQ utensils) and again the air conditioning was much needed. Would highly recommend that a car is required for your stay.

Villa Alexia - getting to know Zakynthos island

  • 5 of 5

Villa Alexia , a wonderful local base for exploring the island Zakynthos . Situated among local greeks and olive fields , the perfect house for 2 adults and 2 teenagers , convenient access to shopping ( Agrilla Supermarket and even a Lidl store ) , super service from the manager , well equipped house and kitchen ( apart from a dishwasher ) , fine cleaning standard and a very thorough and frindly poolman .

Car rental is strongly recommended as touring the island ( as well as Zakynthos town ) brings a diversity of fantastic sceneries . Among many places : Porto Vromi in the north-west of the island ( incredible snorkling ) , lunch and coffee break in Loucha and Gyri in the center / middle of the island ( pictoresque and very greek ) , Agios Nikolaos in the north-east of the island ( green fertile lowlands along with breathtaking driving beautiful coast road ) and the beach of Gerakas in the very south-east end of the island ( sandy, nesting beach of the Caretta Caretta turtle ) .

Food and beverages : go local ! Buy your own food ( try the vegetable market in Zakynthos on thursdays ) and don´t forget to taste local white and red wine from barrels in local supermarkets .

In all it´s very easy to get into the swing of Zakynthos life and we´ll bear the island and Alexia in mind and definitely consider returning some other time .

Lagana and Kalamaki
Car: recommended

Villa Alexia is a beautiful holiday property situated in the area of Agrilia which is on the outskirts of Lagana with something for everyone ranging from a variety of restaurants including traditional Greek cuisine, beach bars, clubs, etc. The resort of Kalamaki is also near to the villa and although possible to reach by foot, for some they may find it a little far so it is better to go by car or taxi. The beach is a 15 minute from the villa and for those who enjoy walking it is possible to walk along the beach to the resort of Kalamaki. This beach is one of the famous nesting places for the turtles and depending on which month it is during the summer season, they can often be seen just by hiring a pedalo.

For those wishing to explore the island a car should be rented in order to enjoy some of the many lovely sites, traditional villages and beaches scattered around the island.

Other Activities: Water sports are available at non turtle nesting beaches
