Idyllically situated on a hill overlooking the Ionian Sea, this collection of seven ancient olive-pickers’ cottages offer peaceful self-contained spaces with a communal hub, perfect for a group holiday with friends and family. Draped in fragrant bougainvillaea, honeysuckle and jasmine, the cottages are set around a vine-covered central courtyard on a secluded 5-acre estate, blissfully surrounded by olive groves.
Each characterful cottage has its own independent access and is decorated in clean and classic whites and blues with contemporary furnishings and basins hand carved from the local limestone. Sleeping 15, there are seven en-suite bedrooms in total with four private and two communal terraces to soak up the Mediterranean sunshine. The spacious communal open-plan kitchen/living area is as cosy in winter with its open fire and large, sumptuous sofas as it is cool in the summer - a place of rest and tranquillity.
Outside, you can set up an easel on the extensive terrace and spend the day transforming the 270-degree panorama along the Zakynthos coast and hilly countryside into watercolour. Or lay out a yoga mat and meditate to the sound of the ocean waves in the distance before indulging in a refreshing dip in the private infinity pool. A shaded dining area offers the perfect spot for al fresco dining while watching children play in the shallow plunge pool.
For special occasions, an excellent local chef, Stephanos, can be hired to provide delicious homecooked food at an additional charge or the local taverna, La Storia, can deliver dinner to order. A full housekeeping service is provided.
