Guestbook comments from the manager

We really loved this charming place! We stayed for one week in one of the villas and enjoyed the atmosphere a lot. In the villas you have all you need for a relaxing holiday (e. g. little kitchen, AC, terrace with a beautiful view on the ocean, very clean...). The service is excellent and if you need anything (information, food, drinks...) just go to Sharon or Maria! Great hospitality! Thank you!

Romantic and perfect

  • 5 of 5

This small romantic detached villa was perfect for us. An excellent base for exploring the beautiful island of Zakynthos. The description was accurate, but we felt it surpassed what was described. We went in September and had fantastic hot weather and really enjoyed a drink at the bar and a swim in the beautiful pool on our return from a day of exploring. Being vegetarians we were thrilled to discover that Mary is also a veggie and she was pleased to be able to provide delicious meals for us on several occasions. Her sons were extremely accommodating and helpful. I would recommend Archontiko villas, so much so that we plan to return next September. You do need a car definitely.

Fantastic villas and superb views across Alykes.

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of four (children aged 10 and 8) and stayed in a villa for a week in July. The villa was spacious, clean and very comfortable. The views from the veranda and the pool area were amazing. The owners, Pavlos and Sharon were really friendly and gave us lots of good advice on places to go. The children had a great time in the pool and we had some lovely meals cooked by Mary at the bar. All in all we had a great time at Archontiko villas and will definitely be coming back! Thank-you for making us so welcome!

A GREEK PARADISE

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful piece of paradise awaited us.

We had a lovely welcoming from Mary,Pavlo and Sharon and felt they added more than a personal touch to make you feel comfortable and at ease.

The villa was very clean and adequate.Sharon and Pavlo are very helpful and always have time for a friendly chat, our only gripe was we wanted to adopt their beautiful dogs and they turned us down flat.

If you want peace and tranquility in a beautifull location this is the place to be, would reccommend car hire.

A big thank you for a lovely holiday. Gail and Martin from York.

Great holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time staying at Archontiko Villas. Each little villa is set in beautiful grounds, with a backdrop of the mountains, and looking out over the sea. We went out of season, rented a car, and explored all over the island. But the highlight was having our breakfast every morning out on the balcony, in the sunshine, enjoying the views. Sharon was so friendly and helpful, it really added to our enjoyment of the holiday.

Peaceful, relaxing and a perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the villas. We were looking for a chilled out and relaxed holiday and that is exactly what we got. I really enjoyed being up the hill away from it all and the view was great. The island itself has alot to offer and we found some wonderful places whilsrt expolring in the car. I would also like to say make sure you try the Greek Salad at the bar of Archontiko as it is to die for! We would love to come back and hopefully very soon. Thanks for everything!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the wonderful review. We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay here in Archontiko and thank you for choosing our property as your holiday getaway. Thank you also for the compliments on the Greek Salad. We have our own gardens here in Archontiko so most of the produce is homegrown. Definitely makes a difference and tastes so fab. We really would love to see you again in Archontiko..
