The house is amazing. It was built it 1919 and is full of old things and decor. There are 4 isolated bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, all rather modern. The patio is fantasic!
The airport is very close to the house and you can see and hear aeroplanes often. It takes 20 minutes to walk to the Kalamaki turtles beach. We were lucky to see several of them while swimming there. They are so large and beautiful!
What a fantastic place!!! The apartment itself is very tastefully decorated and, while it's not huge, is what you would expect from a self-catering apartment (though the second bedroom doesn't have a door). Where SkyBlue comes into its own is the outside space - and that's what you go to Zakynthos for. The views from the balconies are simply stunning and the gardens and sunbathing terrace are outstanding. Having breakfast under the olive trees, looking out over the sea to mainland Greece is something we'll never forget. As if that wasn't enough some steps and a fairly steep ladder (probably not for the faint-hearted) take you down to a private pebbly area where you can get into the sea. The snorkelling is brilliant as the water is SO clear. Having access to this without hoards of other people around is something truly special. And Aggeliki and her husband were so kind and welcoming - even going as far as cooking a BBQ for us one evening.
We hired a car while we were here and that really helped with getting to see the island and especially getting into Zakynthos town. All in all definitely somewhere to recommend if you want to escape from it all in the sun and in beautiful surroundings. (It really is as good as the photos suggest.)
