Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday villa in Agrilia - Villa Christine

Detached 2 bedroom villa with private pool located at the quiet end of Laganas

Fully fitted and equipped modern kitchen and a dining table to accommodate five/six people. Comfortable lounge area with 3 seater sofa and 2 seater sofabed includes LCD TV (for DVD use only), DVD player, Hi-Fi with docking station, open fireplace and air conditioning / heating unit. Both living and dining areas have french doors leading to the covered terrace overlooking the pool area. There are 2 bedrooms one having a double bed and other twin beds and both have fitted wardrobes, air conditioning / heating unit and french doors giving access to balcony overlooking the pool. There is a family bathroom with full size bath and shower over and downstairs cloakroom. Covered terrace with lighting, large table and seating for 6. This leads to the large patio area with private pool which has paving around and 'roman style' steps leading into the pool which are ideal for children. We have provided plenty of sunbeds and parasols for you to relax in the sun and a BBQ for outside entertaining.

Laganas: This is the largest and liveliest resort on the island with the longest beautiful sandy beach which stretches for 8kms all the way to Kalamaki where in between the famous protected species, the Logger Head Turtles, known locally as Caretta-Caretta seek refuge at night to lay their eggs. Here in Laganas you will be spoilt for choice with restaurants to suit all palettes with traditional greek cuisine, italian, indian, chinese, english and fast food outlets. The bars also offer something for everyone. The liveliest of these are situated on 'The Strip'. Along the Road to Kalamaki is an altogether more low key affair with quieter bars, which have more of a family feel to them, nestling amid the restaurants and shops selling everything from locally produced wine, handicrafts and souvenirs to designer clothes and sportswear. There are also mini markets, car hire and travel companies

Kalamaki: The quieter neighbour to Laganas with a similar choice of shops, bars and restaurants although more low key and family orientated. As mentioned above Kalamaki shares the same stretch of beach as Laganas. Be sure to try 'Michaelos' taverna on the road to Zante Town, always excellent food and service.

Rest of the Island: The capital Zakynthos Town is only a short drive from the Villa. Here you will find the busy port were you can take a ferry to many places including the neighbouring island of Kefalonia. There is plenty of shops, bars and restaurants many of which are located around San Marco square, an attractive area especially in the evening.

The shipwreck at Navagio (also known as Smugglers Cove) is also worthy of a visit. It is only accessible by boat and is one of the most beautiful and dramatic places in all of Greece, photographed many times.

A round the island boat trip is highly recommended visiting the Blue Caves on the northern tip and the caves near Keri on the southern tip of the island.

Fantastic Family Destination

  • 5 of 5

The villa was simply lovely. It looks exactly like it does in the pictures. It's very well kept, cleaned and looked after. There are two neighbors in the front and the back, but other than that it's pretty solitary, which we liked. There's a nice view of the mountains, that's marred a bit by a gas station up the road, but we weren't too bothered by it. There's also some construction debris on the way up to the property, but not anywhere in the property itself.

The property manager Angelo was very responsive to any help we needed, from figuring out how to work the washing machine to getting us water when the tank ran out at 9 at night.

The pool was gorgeous, also well kept, but it was a bit cold in the mornings. The kids had a great time jumping around and splashing and I even managed to do some mini laps.

Since we keep kosher, we didn't frequent any of the local tavernas. The fully equipped kitchen (down to a vegetable peeler and tin foil) made our stay that much more comfortable, since we were preparing all of our food at the villa. The many local supermarkets and bakeries were also very convenient.

We managed to hit 5 beaches during our stay, and each was more lovely then the next. The nearest one, Kalamaki, was a bit crowded, but we were also limited to how far we could go with a stroller (we traveled with our 4 and 6 year old daughters and our one year old son). The nice part was that every beach had sun beds and umbrellas and most had some kind of path or boardwalk that made stroller access so much easier.

The villa is missing a garden, which the manager said was in the plans for next year. We were fine without it.

A great family vacation and highly recommended.

Owner's Response: We have tried to think of everything to ensure our guests have a good time. The rest of the garden should be completed for the 2010 season. The reason why the water tank had to be filled up was because the water mains pipe had broken so there were issues with water supply on the whole island.

a very nice, clean, well managed and located villa

  • 4 of 5

Villa was just as described. Ideally situated just outside of the busy resort of Laganas. We felt transport was required but you could have easily taken a 15 min walk into town or local beach. Villa was very clean on arrival with all the facilities advertised. Would certainly recommend to families or couples wanting a little piece and quite, but still near enough to enjoy all the restaurantes and night life off Laganas. Having a car we enjoyed the property as and ideal peaceful/safe base whilst not driving around the beautiful Island of Zante.

Wonderful villa in Zakynthos!

  • 5 of 5

We have spent a beautiful vacation in Villa Christine. The house is very nice, the pictures reveal it correctly.

One can find everything needed for a good stay - the dishwasher is very useful!

We travelled with our 2 daughters (8 and 4 years old). They were delighted about the lovely pool, which was cleaned every 2 days. But, not only them loved the pool ;)

Fortunately, we experienced no problems with the water, although we were informed that there were problems on the island.

As we had our car with us, we could visit a lot and found many beautiful beaches and Zante town deserves more than a visit.

When we will return to Zakynthos, we will definitely choose this villa again: it's the perfect location!

The Villas is lovely, private and great for families. We would recommend this villa for a truly lovely holiday. We could come back time and time again.

June 2010 Summer holiday with our baby

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Villa Christina with our 6 month old boy. It was secluded enough for us to enjoy the peace but near to and equidistant between Kalamaki and Laganas to go out for meals and convenient for shopping, either at the small supermarkets or Lidl a couple of miles away. We hired a car via National (beware - they do have some absolute sheds on their books) but brought our own car seat and small pushchair.

The villa was clean, fully air conditioned and well appointed. The travel cot and high chair were great and the pool was frequently serviced if cold at the start of the season! The only reason it's not getting 5 stars is because we ran out of water one day late in the holiday and the bathroom flooded because the drain was blocked which was quite inconvenient - however the management people sorted this all out as soon as we notified them and really went out of their way to try and help.

We would definitely go back as we love the area and recommend the villa to anyone.

Owner's Response: Many thanks for your review, we always welcome feedback as we want all our guests to have a great holiday. Just to comment on the water problem, it has become an increasing problem on the whole of the island as the water authorities are restricting the mains supply so water deliveries are more frequent. To address this we are installing a second water tank for the 2012 season which should reduce the need for water deliveries.

Wonderful villa, lovely people to deal with !

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at this villa august 2010, really lovely. It was very clean, had everything you would need from adapters to clingfilm, situated between kalamaki and laganas, kalamaki is very much a family resort lots of places to eat, shops and supermarkets to get your supplies, also lidl just up the road. Though it is a 20 min walk from the villa to kalamaki i would say if you have got a family you do need a car, the road there is very busy and there is not a lot of pavement down to the main road so with a pram this would be difficult. laganas main road is not a place for families at all, its like party central for the 18-30, strip clubs and bars if you like that sort of thing.

The villa was first class, the pool was cleaned regularly and you will need this pool after a day on the beach in the hot sun, water ran out when we arrived but a phone call gets it delivered within a couple of hours.

Cannot fault this villa if you want to go to zante then this is a great place to stay.

Car: recommended

Villa Christine is located in Agrilia on the outskirts of Laganas towards Kalamaki. It is in a very quiet area yet with only 20 minutes walk you will find an abundance of bars and restaurants which cater for all tastes whether you prefer something lively, quiet or traditional. Relax around your own private pool or visit the nearby sandy beach just a 25 minute walk away which is lovely and clean where it gently shelves into the sea making it perfect for children. There is a Go-Karting track and Pony Trekking Centre within walking distance and a water park only 10 minutes drive away. The nearest tourist supermarket in Laganas is 20 minutes walk away and Lidl supermarket (which is cheaper) is less than a 5 minute drive away. The island of Zante has plenty to offer if you fancy hiring a car with plenty of picturesque villages and pretty bays and Zante Town has an attractive port with plenty of shops, bars and restaurants to visit.

Other Activities: Go-Karting, Water Park
