Overview

About the property

2 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, Sleeps 8

The absolutely perfect destination for you who wish the difference on your holiday and choose relaxing, unique places in the serene landscape of a lush olive grove. Extremely suited for you who collect rich experiences and pictures combined with the comfortable, luxurious facilities in an accommodation like the house in the village. Marvellous for its excellent location in the picturesque village of Skoulidado, north of Zakynthos while it is the ideal choice for every season of the year.

The "ELEONAS GIOVANI HOUSE" among green olive trees, having a "rustic" character, elegantly combined with the features and layout of the rooms of a modern home, is easily accessible for our guests. It is located on the provincial road of Zakynthos -Volimon, which passes from Skulikado, at a distance of approximately fifteen minutes (12 km) from the "Hora" (= town ) of Zakynthos and less than twenty minutes (15 km) from the International Airport "Dionysios Solomos" of the island.

The first thing that will undoubtedly capture your eye, as soon as you enter the entrance and proceed to the wide alley, is the green background that surrounds "ELEONAS GIOVANI HOUSE" with dense olive trees, the orchard with the various fruit trees, the vineyard of wine and the pretty courtyard with its large circular flowerbed and trees. "ELEONAS GIOVANI HOUSE" is actually located within a wonderful olive oil and wine estate in the village. Certainly, its position on the first floor of a bigger building gives a sense of freshness above the trees, while the view of the olive groves till the opposite ridge with the "lyostasia" (= olive groves in the local dialect) where on the top dominates the church of St. Nicholas, is breathtaking.

The warm colors, the excellent choices of traditional decorative objects the beautiful, wooden handmade artwork of the owner Mr. Costas, the "ELEONAS GIOVANI HOUSE" immediately gains the impressions, promising you real enjoyment and relaxation, while there is a sense of an authentic, traditional and hospitable home atmosphere. Together with your families, friends and your companions, you can ideally choose Eleonas Giovani House for a short visit or a longer vacation and enjoy all the comfort offered by its special facilities.

The ELEONAS GIOVANI HOUSE consists of two spacious, stylish and bright bedrooms, with the capacity to accommodate up to seven guests. In one bedroom there is a double and one single bed while in the second one there are two double beds. In addition, if necessary for very young children, a portable baby bed is available without extra charge. Both bedrooms are particularly comfortable and well-equipped, having each a TV set and air conditioning (the central one even has a ceiling fan) as well as all practical facilities for arranging and storing your clothes and other items. Yet they both face a large balcony with a beautiful view of the olive groves.

The living room, decorated in the style of a previous more romantic era,with the handmade, wooden details and constructions, such as its lovely wooden floor, offers interesting entertainment when relaxing with your friends or family . Just select among watching TV, having fun (especially our young friends) with the PlayStation 3 or observing the stars during the summer nights with the available telescope.

The kitchen also decorated in traditional style and situated next to the living room, is a separate spacious room, where you can prepare and enjoy your breakfast or a meal as it is fully equipped. Last but not least the large, furnished veranda of Eleonas Giovani House covers the entire front side with access from the kitchen and the living room. The views of the dense olive trees are amazing, looking like being so close, you can touch them. Definitely the best choice for bright mornings and cool evenings. Yet, there are two bathrooms in the accommodation, one of which is located in the bedroom.

The "ELEONAS GIOVANI HOUSE" also offers free of charge:

* free Wi-Fi for your online communication

* a washing machine and a dishwasher

* a safety deposit box for your valuable items

* free parking area for your car

* separate space to storage your luggage until your departure

Although we have arranged the safety issues for the comfort of our guests, we recommend not to leave children unattended at the veranda, the balconies and the stairs.

About owner/property manager

Kostas is a young, creative man, craftsman and artist who works the wood by making excellent articrafts. He comes from Zakynthos island but lives in Athens. "ELEONAS GIOVANI HOUSE" was his dream for which he has worked with his own hands. All the wooden constructions and objects have been made by him. Kostas likes making things with his own personal stamp. He also likes life and activities in the village and that is why he spends almost all of his summers on Zakynthos island. It is a real pleasure for him to come in winter and collect his olives to produce his oil. For those who wish to participate in a special activity, Kostas offers you an alternative suggestion: Help him, just for the experience, to harvest the olives and exchange your work with fresh, pure olive oil that will be the sweetest and most delicious, because it will have passed through your hands!

Location

"ELEONAS GIOVANI HOUSE" is located in the flat country of the village Skulikado in the middle of Zakynthos island, from its northern and southern edges. Skulikado is a traditional beautiful village that lays from the east of the plain, where the main street of Zakynthos -Volimon passes, up to the side of Mount Vrachionas to the west. The village is named after its stair-like layout that goes up the mountain. The locals are traditionally engaged to the cultivation of raisins, vines and fruit trees in the summer, while in the winter mainly with the picking of olives for the production of olive oil. Besides, in the village there are two "litruvia" (so they are called in the local dialect olive oil factories), which operate from October to beginning of March, as the collection of olives takes place from autumn until the end of winter. You can visit them, actually one is located just 500 meters away from ELEONAS GIOVANI HOUSE and see the process closely. The people there will be happy to treat you to taste bread with pure, "new" oil. ,

Almost each family raises fruit and vegetables, while some hold small farms with poultry goats and sheep having the "privilege" to enjoy fresh goods on their daily family table. One of the things that people are proud of in Skulikados is the great historic, church, dedicated to the Virgin Mary (to the west of "ELEONAS GIOVANI HOUSE"), which dates back to 1830 AD Next to the church on the main hill of the village, stands the high, conical bell tower with one hundred steps. Four melodic bells, built in Venice in the 1925, ring melodically and cheerfully like symphonic music during the religious feasts and their sound travels to the neighboring villages and even further away.

An excellent family tavern is located only 500 m away from Eleonas Giovani House, where in a traditional environment you can enjoy delicious dishes of Zakynthian and Hellenic cuisine at reasonable prices. The tavern is one of the best dining options on almost the whole island. In the distance of 200 meters, you can also get fresh bread, baked in a wood oven. For your everyday shopping supplies you can be served at the mini-grocery, located about one kilometer away (there is also a post office) close to the kindergarten of the village or at the supermarkets located in the two neighboring villages about two kilometers away .

Skulikado, although not a seaside village, is only a 5-minute drive (4, 5 km) from the wonderful sandy beaches of Alykes and Alykanas to the north. The soft sand and the shallow, warm sea water, make the beaches ideal for both small children who can play in safety, and adults who can have a go in all kinds of water sports. Alykes and Alykanas beaches are developed with restaurants, small bars and sun loungers, while you can also have your own beach equipment.

Naturally beautiful is the smaller beach called Xechoriatis. Here, the morning swim with the first touch of the sun is a real pleasure and a unique experience!

The nature lovers who love hiking and long or shorter walks,Skulikados offers the best options. On foot or by bike, the slopes the trails, next to or through olive groves, each route is special! A beautiful, cool walk (about one kilometer) through the olives is from "ELEONAS GIOVANI HOUSE" to the small picturesque chapel of the Holy Taxiarches. From there, you have a panoramic view of the tallest part of the village with the central church and the tall bell tower. A second, more "demanding" uphill walk is up to the main church and the tall bell tower,walking almost around of the whole village. On the way, take a stop at the tap with the running water next to the church of Agios Nikolaos, to drink some crystal water. The breathtaking view from up there will definitely reward you as your eye will stretch in the plain to the bay of Alykes, the northern tip of Zakynthos, the sea and the neighboring island of Kefalonia.

As Skulikado has the privilege to be in the middle of Zakynthos, "ELEONAS GIOVANI HOUSE" is definitely an excellent base for its visitors. At shorter or longer distances (thirty kilometers the longest one), they can visit and explore all the wonderful mountain and sea side areas of the island, taking the trails through lush landscapes or beach roads that follow the coastline.
