I am based in London as a headmistress of a Nursery school. I have run this and other villas since 2001.
Victoria purchased this Villa in 2005
Why Victoria chose Zakinthos
The peace and tranquillity of this villa is wonderful. The views cannot be matched and the privacy with the large pool and being near the sea make it a magical place You can lie under the stars at night , no mosquitoes up here! The breeze at night is a blessing but there is air con in the bedrooms too. you have to come to Homer's hideaway to escape and relax..............
What makes this Villa unique
very private on a large plot surrounded by olive trees with a large pool and many terraces to lie on! plus the view is 180 degrees of the rest of the island, the peleponese and the island of Kefalonia. Escape to the North of the island where you can take boats from the Port to other islands but where the pace of life is much more relaxing! So many secret local beaches, and where the locals are unique!

Zakynthos is a gorgeous Ionian Island just South of Corfu and Kefalonica 3 hours by air from England. Homer's Hideaway is on the North Eastern tip near Port Nicholas. Homer mentioned Zakynthos in 'The Iliad' as part of Odesseus' travels. The villa is 5 minutes drive from , a sailing club and water sport haven for dingy sailors, walkers and painters. The local village is 5 minutes drive away and the beaches nearby are sandy and quiet with super Tavernas. The Port of St Nicholas is 5 minutes in the car, has some wonderful places to eat on the waterfront, but also boat trips to the ship wreak, blue caves and to Kefalonia. Great for a day out!!!
