“Simply - paradise!”
Reviewed 27 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We spent wonderfull two weeks in Villa Cara. It is easy to sum up - the place is just paradise.

Location - well, I had never such a one-million dollar view straight from my bed... On the mornings golden light paints the facade of the villa so we spent our time sipping coffee in the balcony.

Villa is in perfect condition, the maintaining team is more than super and the pool - inviting and fresh.

I loved Xigia Beach, the sulphur one, but as we were with kids, we used to went to Alykes beach, which was perfect for families.

Thanks to very useful infos from Sam, we usually ate tasty food in taverna Anatolikos. It is place not only where tasty food is served but also is great value for money.

For me it was the best holiday ever...

“Attractive stone villa located conveniently to some of the most beautiful beaches on Zakinthos.”
Reviewed 11 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We feel very happy to have found Villa Cara as it put us within walking distance to some of the best beaches and tavernas on the Island.
The caretakers, Norma and Terry, keep the villa in immaculate condition. They are also very helpful in regards to advice and recommendation on activities around the islands such as where to shop, eat and other leisure activities.
This villa is well equipped to accommodate young families.
It was great to have good satellite TV as well as a selection of CDs, DVDs and books.
The contribution of information from previous guests in the information pack was brilliant!

“Great place to stay on this beautiful island”
Reviewed 23 July 2014 for a stay in June 2014

The beautiful little Villa Cara is located in a rather quiet part of the island, away from big hotels and busy beaches, which turned out to be our favorite place! The local beaches, villages and restaurants (especially Niko's) are absolutely gorgeous, and in general we found the Northern part of the island most original and beautiful. However, If you want more action & prefer being in village, you probably should search for another place. We were travelling as 2 families with grand parents (6 adults, 2 kids), which is definitely the limit the Villa can host. Rooms were very clean, the pool was perfect, and if there was a problem the local housekeepers were extremely friendly and helpful! The only thing that was missing would have been a garden with flowers & trees, but the goats in the area don't support this idea. In summary, we loved it and would definitely come back!

“Perfect villa, perfect location”
Reviewed 6 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We loved this villa - having stayed in many over the years the location, facilities, views and authentic charm of the place really made our holiday special.

Our children are 4 and 7 and the villa is safe, has its own pool which is regularly cleaned and is in a quiet location with amazing views but close enough to quiet, stunning beaches, exciting boat trips and water parks to keep everyone entertained.

Booking with Sam was really easy and she always kept me informed with useful tips about car hire etc.

I would highly recommend this villa to anyone.

“Just Perfect”
Reviewed 24 June 2013 for a stay in June 2013

person found this review helpful

Gorgeous Villa in a stunning location away from the hustle and bustle of the busier parts of the Island.

Villa Cara is short of nothing - it suited our needs perfectly.
We needed a week of complete relaxation and rest and thats exactly what we achieved here.

Stunning views - Great sunrises and perfect location for either a busy holiday or a relaxing out of the way stay.

All parts of the Island are within easy reach should you want to explore more.

The villa itself has everything you need, its short of nothing. The pool albeit small (ish) is just perfect for a dip when it gets too hot.

There are some lovely local beaches that are nice and quiet and have the sun most of the day.

Great Tavernas just a few minutes away (especially Xigia Taverna just up the hill where you will receive a warm welcome and fantastic food)

There are no negatives regarding our stay here it really was perfect.
