EARLY BOOKING DISCOUNT - PRIVATE VILLA/AIR CON/POOL/BBQ/SEA VIEWS/CLOSE TO BEAC

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday villa in Agios Nikolaos

3 FLOORS OF UNOBSTRUCTED SEA VIEWS, 3 BEDROOMS, 2 BATHROOMS, AIR CONDITIONING

One of three villas built on a private elevated plot of 1000sq m with breathtaking unobstructed sea views and minutes walk from the nearest secluded beach. The villa has 3 bedrooms with a surface area of 124sq m capable of accommodating 6 persons comfortably and possibly 7. It offers a fully equipped kitchen, lounge/dining area, 2 bathrooms, separate cloakroom, large verandas and balcony plus air conditioning. The villa has been constructed with love and respect to the natural environment's beauty using natural stone and wood, bringing 'nature's spirit' into our hearts. This individual detached stone villa has its own private swimming pool, 3m x 7m, offering a magnificent view overlooking the Ionian sea. The distance from the sea is only 80m and the view extends from the neighbouring island of Kefalonia to the north and the opposite coastline of Peloponnese to the far end of Zakynthos to the south.

The Area: The captivating charm of this area is what attracted the owners to have a traditional Zakynthian stone villa built here. The peaceful and picturesque surroundings which respect your privacy is what you will find here on one of the most beautiful places on the island. Described by many as a little piece of heaven on earth, you will go far to find such an idyllic location to relax, unwind and let the stress of every day living slip away. Volimes village is only 10min away with taverns, coffee shops, post office, health centre and many small shops. Just 300m from the villa there is the famous Xigia beach which offers a unique chance of a health spa for free! The water here is reputed to be good for skin, removing cellulite, relieving arthritis and other ailments due to the high sulphur content. The beach is small & uncrowded, perfect for a tranquil time to bathe in the healing waters. There are many tavernas in the area offering excellent local cusine and friendly hospitality

The Island: Luxuriantly fertile mountains, ancient villages, Venetian monasteries, together with the bustling resorts of the south make this an island to please everyone. You can find long sandy beaches, small secluded coves, you can visit old monasteries, walk among the countryside where the smell of wild herbs is intoxicating, taking in breathtaking views of cliffs, sea and amazing sunsets. You can visit the famous Ship Wreck Bay, voted one of the top ten beaches in the world by Conde Naste Traveller, the Blue Caves or the home of the Caretta Turtle. If you are after excellent shopping, art and culture the main town of Zakynthos is certainly worth visiting. The square in the evening tends to be very lively and there are lots of restaurants to choose from where you can sit under the stars and enjoy local traditional Greek dishes. The island itself is easy to drive around and the scenery very beautiful. If you are after more lively entertainment you will find this further south of the island.

C & D Villas: We are very happy and excited to be able to offer you the chance of a holiday in our wonderful villa which is very dear to our hearts. The villa can also be rented with its sister villa which has been built to the same specification - property No. 89140. This will give larger groups the opportunity to holiday together and yet have your own privacy when needed. The villas are family owned and have been built with love and respect for the island and surrounding area. We want our clients to enjoy their holiday and hope that, like us, they will want to return again and again. We have tried, as far as is possible to think of all your needs but if you have a special request or need that we have not catered for in this advert, please contact us and we will try our best to accommodate you and your party. We will also try to be flexible on change over days depending on your travel arrangements etc. We can also organise your car hire at local rates for your convenience

About Craig Carson

My husband and I as pictured above on a boat trip to Shipwreck Bay have been happily married for almost 31 years. We have two sons of 29 and 27 years as well as our daughter who is 21 years and studying acting at University in Wales. We have enjoyed many holidays over the years and in fact we lived in New Zealand for almost five years which is where our daughter was born. We enjoy the sun, swimming, good food and good wine. We like walking, sight seeing and experiencing different cultures. We still both work full time so look forward to our holidays at the villa where we can thoroughly relax, surrounded by the wonders of nature.

Craig Carson purchased this villa in 2008

Why Craig Carson chose Agios Nikolaos

We choose this spot for our villa which was built along with its sister villa also family owned. The location is so peaceful with the mountains on one side and the Ionian Sea on the other. We both like to be beside the water so for us there is no better location. The villa is built in the traditional stone style and keeps cool in the warmer days while retaining the heat in the colder days of winter. We also fell in love with the Island and the Greek people who are so warm and welcoming.

What makes this villa unique

A chance to get away from it all. Very private yet not far away from the hustle and bustle if you fancy it. The pool is a big bonus and the olive trees for shelter from the sun. I could go on and on about the benefits but it is best for you to experience them for yourself. Most of our clients report back that they would be happy to never leave the villa on their vacation so I think that says it all.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My summary is that you have a lovely villa in a fantastic location with wonderful views. The other big plusses for us were the proximity to really good restaurants so we were able to mix eating out and eating in. The variety of beaches which we used meant we never got bored. The pool and the villa by comparison to others we have rented had a really well equipped kitchen. The welcome pack is a nice gesture, particularly if you arrive at a time when the shops are closed. Your maintenance team do a great job, the cleaning and pool maintenance is done when promised and well. We had a small issue with the first floor WC which was sorted the next day - all very efficient and friendly.

We had a fantastic time and would certainly recommend your Villa to anyone thinking about a holiday in Zakynthos.

Secluded Villa with breathtaking views

  • 5 out of 5
We had a wonderful time here. This villa was far enough from the really touristy end of the island without feeling cut off as everything we could possibly need was nearby. The people who maintain the villa are on hand should you need ANYTHING - they really go out of their way. There were 3 generations of our family and we all had a wonderful time. Being able to walk to Xigia beach was a plus. Most days though we just got into the car and drove until the beautiful blue water became too tempting.....then we'd just stop and jump in (I'm someone who never really swims). We have to go back....we didn't see a turtle on our first visit.

Blissful Retreat

  • 5 out of 5
I was so happy to discover upon my arrival on Zakynthos, that the holiday villa I had rented was exactly as pictured and described. My family ranges in ages from 11,16,21,to 40+. And all of us loved staying here. The views are amazing, there are local beaches with rocks to dive from and caves to explore. Beaches infused with minerals and collagen (what a bonus :), beaches with plenty of social activity and private little bays, local tavernas with again incredible views and easy access to tourist destinations such as Shipwreck bay and ferries to Kefelonia.
A car is essential for supermarket shopping and exploring the island to its full potential. Thank you Laura for an incredible holiday. I would fully recommend this vilal to my friends and family and would love to return here myself some day.

Wedding and Honeymoon Aug-Sep 2010

  • 4 out of 5
My wife and I stayed in this villa when we got married this year and had a fantastic time. Laura had arranged for fresh flowers, balloons and champagne on our arrival at the villa and this was a very much appreciated gesture.

The location and views are amazing - if you want peace and tranquility then this is the spot for you. The Cantina above Xigia beach is close by and the beaches at Xigia and Pelagaki are only minutes away by car or foot and offer excellent swimming and sunbathing. The pool was also great alhough there were a few problems with the filtration system but this was resolved without too much fuss. Overall we had a lovely time and didn't want to leave!! We will definitely be returning for our first anniversary next year. Thank you Laura for a wonderful week.

Modern villa in Beautiful Location

  • 4 out of 5
Six of us spent a great week in this villa. Lovely part of the island and a great beach with cafe a couple of minutes away. Some teething problems with the pool beyond the control of the owner were compensated for by great views, wall to wall sunshine and some excellent tavernas nearby. Recommended for those wanting a quieter Greek Island holiday.

Wonderful family Villa Holiday

  • 4 out of 5
This is a super Villa, beautifully equipped and enchantingly located, perfectly suiting a family like us with teenaged children.
The sea views are wonderful and there is a good choice of restaurants a few minutes drive away. The small local beach is fun and provides good swimming within a sheltered cove. Excellent swimming pool at the Villa too!
We were the first guests to use the Villa in July 2008 and we would certainly recommend it to others.
