BEAUTIFUL CONTEMPORARY VILLA WITH STUNNING VIEWS AND FRESHWATER INFINITY POOL

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday villa in Limni Keriou - Villa Alourdas

2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom with full-sized infinity pool. Mountain and sea views.

The accommodation which has its own entrance consists of two spacious bedrooms, bathroom and cloakroom. It is self-contained within the villa. The master bedrom has a kingsize bed, airconditioning and ceiling fan. The twinbed room is also very spacious. A modern Italian style bathroom with toilet and cloakroom with second toilet. Sole use of beautiful, private infinity swimming pool with stunning sea views. Decking area for sunbathing and shady spacious tiled verandas with seating areas. This villa offers complete privacy and seclusion, ideal for couples and families. The owners are in residence for any assistance you might need. There are no cooking facilities within the apartment as we offer a continental or cooked breakfast with homemade jams, local honey, yogurt, fruit etc. There are tea making facilities available. There is a fridge/freezer for your use for your snacks and cold drinks etc, a washing machine, iron and ironing board are also available. We also provide you with bathroom, beach and pool towels! Also cooler boxes, chairs and umbrellas for the beach.

Villa Alourdas is situated in Limni Keri and being only five years old has a very modern interior with a high quality finish. It is of contemporary design with high ceilings which maintain a cooler temperature in the summer months. Electronic shutters and fly screens are fitted in every room. Bathroom and cloakroom have Italian tiling with modern fixtures.

Keri is an old traditional fishing village with its own harbour and is located on the west coast. Keri has good road links with the main town but has managed to retain splendid isolation in a picturesque, picture-postcard location. The walks around and behind Villa Alourdas have some of the best views of the island. There are no nightclubs in Keri and is well suited for families. There are two well established diving schools and also boat hire on the seafront. You can hire a boat and skipper for the day who will take you all around the island, stopping off for a glass of wine and a swim. A local water taxi will take you to Marathonisi Island - the home of the loggerhead turtles which can be seen in the summer months. Keri caves are well worth a visit with amazing scenery - you can even take the boat inside the caves. Evening meals can be enjoyed in one of the many family owned tavernas overlooking Keri bay.

Keri is a small resort with masses of 'real Greece' appeal

We had the pleasure of staying with Jan and Jon for two weeks in August. The Villa, hosts, food and Keri were just like the sunset... Perfect.

Everything we wanted was catered for, the villa was beautiful. Thanks Jan and Jon, good luck with the Car Boots and see you again, thats a promise. xx

Peaceful luxury accommodation with stunning views

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed in this beautiful property with Jan & John in June 2014. This is our 4th holiday in Zante & our 2nd with them & enjoyed every minute yet again. The accommodation is extremely luxurious & the views out to Marathonisi (turtle island) are to die for. We found the gorgeous freshwater pool & the outside space & furniture totally relaxing & comfortable. Jan's cooking is restaurant quality & we found ourselves not wanting to venture out too much to eat! Their hospitality & attention to our every need was extremely welcoming. The animals they keep are so loving & friendly, I have a particular bond with 'Lisa the dog' seeing as she has my name! I would not hesitate in recommending this property to anyone who is planning a holiday on the beautiful island of Zakynthos. The property & our hosts are so well equipped we needn't have bothered packing half of what we did!. The island has so much charm, especially when you get to swim with the turtles so freely & are allowed to rent a boat alone. Thank you again Jan & John for a perfect holiday & providing such a home away from home, we were so very sad to leave & look forward to returning to you again next year. All our love & best wishes, Lisa & Simon

A Wonderful Relaxing Holiday

  • 5 out of 5
We had a lovely 2 weeks with Jan and John and the animals, at their beautiful home. The pictures of the property are very accurate and the views and the pool are fabulous. Keri is a beautiful place to stay, the beach and tavernas are within walking distance of the villa but a car is recommended to explore the island further. Jan and John are very generous hosts and provide everything you need for a relaxing holiday - we miss our lovely breakfasts. Thank you both, we will be back one day. The Hansons x

Like us before we actually went, you might be reading some of John and Jan’s reviews and thinking they might be too good to be true or that there is some kind of catch. If that’s the case and you go and stay there then prepare to be most pleasantly surprised, just like we were. Having just returned from a 10 day stay there (September 2012) with my husband and two teenage daughters, I would thoroughly endorse all of the positive comments left by previous holiday makers. Firstly, the pictures, specifications and descriptions of the Villa are 100% accurate. However, what they don’t tell you is the amount of time and effort that Jan and John put into making your stay as relaxed (or busy) as you want it to be. So, when we arrived at the airport at 5:20am local time, they were there to meet us and to make sure we found our way from the airport to Keri OK. Normally, or at least in other places we’ve stayed at where breakfast is included, it is served within a limited time frame, not here! Breakfast was available whenever we managed to surface, regardless of the time of day! During the stay John and Jan were on hand with offers of drinks around the pool, fruit by the pool, offers of lifts into to town, advice on trips and boat and car hire etc. They truly were the perfect hosts and gave us privacy when we needed it. We had sole use of the beautiful pool with magnificent views. The cats and dogs were good natured and again added to the relaxed feeling of the villa. The walk into Keri and the Tavern as is fairly hilly and takes about 20 minutes so a car may be considered essential for some visitors. There is no ATM in Keri but the restaurants take cards. Once again many thanks John and Jan (and the four legged team) for a really good holiday.

If like me you are searching for holiday heaven for your family and have found yourself on this page then stop looking and keep your fingers crossed that your dates are available, if so then believe me your search is over.

We had the absolute pleasure of spending a week in August with Jan,John, Fang,Princess, Baby, Ruby, Missy and Lisa(THE BOSS MOST DEFINITELY BEING FANG!!!). We have spent many holidays on Greek islands but can honestly say that this was by far the most amazing week. From meeting Jan and John at the airport we were whisked away to a wonderful villa in the beautiful area of Limni Keri. Yes the photographs are exactly how the villa is PERFECT.

The real stars of the show are Jan and John who through years of looking after people have developed the right mix of entertaining you and discreetly blending into the background when the time is right, not that we ever wanted them to blend into the background as the time we spent with them was lovely.

All of the other reviews will tell you about the villa and Keri beach far more eloquently than I ever could so please read them all and you will like me see the common words running through each of them.

All we can say is Thank you Jan and John for an amazing 5 star experience. Missing you all and will see you both at some point next year.



Phil, Wendy and Isobel

Villa Alourdas is a contempory, luxury villa with a spacious adjoining self-contained apartment situated on the mountainside amongst pine trees and natural habitat. Beautiful established plantings surround the villa. Enjoy the infinity swimming pool with stunning uninterrupted views to the sea which includes the famous turtle island 'Marathonisi'. The unspoilt picturesque beach of Keri is only five minutes away. Shady trees line the waterfront to sit under when the sun is too hot! Friendly, family owned tarvernas are dotted along the seafront. There are two very well established diving schools and snorkelling amongst the rocks which surround Keri Bay. Boat hire is available for hourly and daily hire. Keri Caves is very popular with our visitors. Walking and hiking up in the mountains gives you breathtaking views and is well worth the effort! Keri Lake which is situated behind the beach is a conservation area so Keri manages to maintain a natural landscape within the bay.

In the evening relax and enjoy a fabulous cocktail made by Christos at the very popular Rock Cafe.
