The place is really nice, the owners are very friendly and always willing to help, welcoming with a map and a lot of tips about the island, as well as for best taverns in the area. good location to travel in the north part of the island where the most beautiful places are. The place is fully equipped and there is a lot of space outside where we loved to sit at the morning and have our b-fast.

- The best quiet option of Zakynthos - TripAdvisor

An idyllic location in the quiet country side, no car noise only the summer cicada sang! And still only a few minutes by car or moped to the beach, supermarket, baker etc. Perfect service, we were welcomed by the host with a bottle of white wine and one of olive oil (their own production). The cottages are surrounded by the nature, there are many fruit trees, we had delicious breakfasts with fresh figs (I used to pick them in the early morning) or peaches. We had our private little back yard with hammock, a marble table with chairs for our dinners and breakfasts, a barbecue.

- Fantastic! - TripAdvisor

Houses and the garden are beautiful and there are many useful things like deck-chairs, hammocks, where we can take a rest comfortably. It is quite near to a very nice sandy beach and to the city of Zakynthos. The owner is very nice person and gave us good advices, thanks to him we saw many interesting things.
