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.

The owners are in residence for any assistance you might need. There are no cooking facilities within the guests accommodation as we offer a fully cooked breakfast with homemade jams, local honey, yogurt, fruit etc. There are tea making facilities available. There is also a fridge/freezer for your 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 and picnic mats for the beach.

Villa Alourdas is situated in Limni Keri and being only seven 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.

The infinity pool is the real 'star' of this property which young and old enjoy immensly and adds a real plus to your holiday.

Keri Beach 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 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.

Wonderful as always

  • 5 of 5

This was our third time staying with Jan and John and all of their delightful animals, and we had a lovely relaxing holiday home away from home. The villa was spotlessly clean and Jan and John are always on hand for anything you may need, nothing is too much trouble.

Missing you all already x

Simply stunning villa with infinity pool!

  • 5 of 5

What can I say to do this place justice! Jan & John could not have been more accommodating again. Views & accommodation were totally awesome, Jan's food & John's waiting skills are to die for & was lovely to have such a warm welcome after such a great trip last year with them, it all felt home away from home & we were utterly spoilt. A must visit for a perfect, tranquil retreat. Thanks again wonderful hosts, will be back next year without a doubt!!! Xx

Peaceful luxury accommodation with stunning views

  • 5 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 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

Villa Alourdas is a contempory, luxury villa with spacious self-contained private accommodation. Set on the hillside amongst pine trees and natural habitat with beautiful established plantings which surround the villa. Enjoy the infinity swimming pool with stunning uninterrupted views to the sea and the famous turtle island 'Marathonisi'. This truly beautiful villa's location is perfect for couples, friends and family who want a perfect getaway for their holiday. 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.
