“Peaceful seclusion”
Reviewed 13 January 2015 for a stay in September 2013

If you are after nightclubs or noisy bars this isn't the place for you. If you want peace and quiet with stunning views and a taste of the quieter part of Zakynthos then we would definitely recommend staying here. The house is tastefully decorated, well equipped and is located on its own with fantastic views over to Kefalonia with a guaranteed sunset view from the balcony each evening. There is no pool but there are plenty of beaches and secluded coves nearby to explore. There is also a wide variety of local tavernas within a short drive. You will need a car. Enjoy.

“Incredible panoramic views and gorgeous sunsets.”
Reviewed 13 January 2015 for a stay in May 2013

A truely amazing place on the North coast of Zakynthos.
The villa sits on a hilltop overlooking the Ionian sea with Kethalonia in the distance. In my opinion, the house has been cleverly constructed as it sits very sympathetically in it's surroundings. Its numerous terraces ensure that the building almost merges into the hillside. Internally the house provides everything you might need, is comfortable and relaxing and has been tastefully decorated.
Stravatha, however, is all about the view. What must be very rare, if not unique, is that in the panorama overlooking Kephalonia there is hardly any sign of 'other people' giving the impression that you have the island to yourself.
A car would be pretty much essential in order to explore the coves and tavernas but you could easily walk into the hills around the house returning to Stravatha for another wonderful evening.
Highly recommended.

“Stunning views, fabulous private villa”
Reviewed 7 January 2015 for a stay in September 2013

Went with friends to escape for some late summer sunshine; beautiful villa with stunning views towards Kephalonia - perfect for sunset drinks on the terrace. You need a car to get to local shops and beaches, but the benefit of being away from it all is the peace and privacy. Great holiday, thank you!

“Tranquil Escape with Amazing Views”
Reviewed 6 January 2015 for a stay in June 2013
1
person found this review helpful

We came her to unwind, what a fantastic place!

What you get is a beautiful old villa sympathetically refurb'ed to make it a wonderful haven from busy life. This place is so much about the views and they are stunning and you can enjoy them from pretty much every part and without being overlooked!

We loved eating al-fresco taking in the view and there were enough shady areas for me to retreat to with my english skin!

You will need a car to get to the beach but it is lovely to return to the villa to enjoy the sunset with a bottle of wine!

The villa has everything we needed and we had a fantastic holiday, thank you.
