Very high standards houses, panoramic sea views, clean sandy beach in your doorsteps, friendly atmosphere!
It is rare that you find anywhere on the internet that is actually more beautiful than it appears on the owner's website, but Porta del Mar is a wonderful find. After a few stressful months we as a family were really ready for a holiday and particularly looking forward to returning to Greece for the first time since our children were born 12 and 9 yrs ago. We wanted them to have a reliably warm beach holiday for the first time and were drawn by the close proximity to the sea, having trailed to the beach in the car for the last few years. Tasos, Pavlina and their children have made their villas so special- we were welcomed but never felt under pressure to do anything we didn't want to. We relaxed immediately, falling into a routine of getting up, swimming before breakfast, in sea a few metres away, then breakfasting on our veranda, then going back to the beach, etc, etc...sometimes we ate in the evening at the great local tavernas, try the pitta sandwiches!, sometimes at the villa with vegetables donated by Tasos from the vegetable garden under our balcony, supplemented by the stall at the top of the road which was a real find, particularly the local olive oil! Our other evenings were memorably spent eating at the villa bar- we had a barbeque that was wonderful,Tasos cooked us sea bream and some local octopus, follwed by Greek dancing with Dimitri- aah, Dimitri, the children loved you!. We also had a pizza evening which, again, doesn't sound anywhere near as magical as it was, as we made our own pizzas, Tasos cooked them in an open air oven and we ate outside, followed by a midnight swim..Tasos and Pavlina work hard to make everything look so simple and easy and it really pays off. Our children loved every minute of the holiday mainly because of all those extra things carefully thought of: the kayak for our use on the beach and the canoe, the sunbeds for us and Tasos checking that no one else from other villas was using them!, the fact that the children could go up and down to the villas on their own because the area is so safe and of course the weather! We are booking to return next year and the thought should keep me going through the winter...thankyou Tasos and Pavlina for a Fab holiday!
Well what can i say, one word FANTASTIC... This is my 2nd visit and it was better than ever. The villas are well maintained and spacious. Tasos and Pavlina are the owners and are alway there to help. The BBQ and PIZZA evening are the best as you all sit together and meet all of the other guests (and the food is wicked). I went with a friend this year and we went bike riding, canooing etc which they have on the premises for the guests to use.
The gardens are beyond belief, very well presented .
I could go on and on as i have been to the greek islands on many occassions and this is by far the best accommodation that i have ever been too.
It is like a home from home,very relaxed with fantastic views from each of the villas. The people that we have met there also have been back year after year and i have already booked for next year already, otherwise it get's booked up. Once you have been there you would be hard pushed to find anywhere as lovely but i must say what make's it is the owners, Tasos and Pavlina, as i feel now that i have made friends for life and as long as i can travel at least one of my holidays a year will be at Porta Del Mar.
Just go for it and i assure you that you wont be a bit dissapointed.

Nur eine Woche waren wir hier, aber wir durften einen der schoensten Plaetze auf diesem Planeten erleben und geniessen. Die Besitzer dieses Paradieses, Tassos und Pavlina haben hier aus den oertlichen Kalksteinen 8 wunderschoene Natursteinhaeuser gebaut mit sehr viel Liebe zum Detail. Dazu einen gepflegten Garten und eine eigene Bar fuer das leibliche Wohl. Und dann natuerlich das Beste an der ganzen Geschichte: die komplette Anlage liegt direkt am Meer mit einem hauseigenen Strand. Die mehr als nur lieben und freundlichen Gastgeber veranstalten dann immer samstags einen Grillabend mit leckeren selbtgemachten griechischen Speisen, den man sich nicht entgehen lassen darf.
Alles in allem koennen wir diesen Platz nur waermstens empfehlen.

Die Ferienwohungen der "Porta del Mar"-Anlage können wir definitiv weiterempfehlen. Wir haben eine Woche in der Einheit "Pasithea" (mit tollem Meerblick von der Terrasse aus!) verbracht und waren sehr zufrieden. Das Personal kümmert sich bestens um die Gäste, die Anlage und die Wohnungen selbst sind gut ausgestattet und bieten viel Ruhe und ein entspanntes Flair. Zudem die tolle Lage mit direktem Zugang zum Strand! Alles in allem: wunderbar! :-)
The area of Psarou Beach is situated between the resorts of Amoudi and Tsilivi, on the North-Eastern coast of Zakynthos Island. Psarou beach is just 12 km far from Zante town. It is a green, quiet area, surrounded by a rich Mediterranean flora.
Porta del mar is located over a pretty, private cove in the middle of Psarou beach. This quite sandy beach has been awarded with the European Blue flag the last 10 consecutive years. It is very safe and ideal for swimming, snorkeling and canoeing.
The surrounding unspoilt countryside provides interesting walks through the beautiful olive groves. Within walking distance (50 – 200 meters long) from your villa, you will find many taverns, mini-markets and a bakery for your daily needs.
