Ilyessa Cottages


Zakynthos, or Fiori di Levante as it was named by the Venetians, is the third largest island in the Ionian Sea and a popular destination in Greece that is definitely worth a visit. The enchanting landscape with its magnificent trees and flowers, the fantastic seas and its sights, such as the famous Navagio, are just some of what you will see.

Because of its natural beauty, with its magnificent flowers and its many trees, Homer in Odyssey describes it as “Ilyessa”, in other words, a wooded place full of trees. This is where our cottages get their name.


Ilyessa Cottages is a family business, just outside Zakynthos, combining tradition with luxury. It consists of six residences, in harmony with the enchanting and natural environment of the area.
