“Beautiful villa in a beautiful location”

Everyone in my family from the age of 11 to 75 had a wonderful experience. The villa was easy to find. The roads were quiet and I found the driving easy. When we arrived we were not disappointed with the clean and well built villa. Most impressive were the views form all the balconies and the swimming pool terrace - beautiful coastline scenery and deep blue seas. The pool was clean and the terrace area had a shaded area with chairs and a huge bbq. I cannot fault the villa and in fact it was much better than the photos in my opinion.

It was a short distance to some great tavernas for tasty meals and a good choice of beaches. If you like long sandy beaches with the facilities of bars, restaurants and water sports then Alacanas Is perfect for you and just 10 to 15 mins along the coast. if you prefer smaller beaches with clear blue water they are all around you.
We visited a local olive oil factory, vineyard, went on a boat trip from the local beach to the blue caves and ship wreck bay, went to the beaches and chilled out around he pool and terrace. One of the highlights was taking the short ferry ride frimSt Nicholas (10mins up the coast) to Kefalonia. It was reasonable to take the car. It leaves every morning and returnes in the evening every day. It was all really easy.
There were no smells from the nearby sulphur caves and I couldnt have chosen a better location. All in all a great holiday and I fully recommend this villa.

“Utter luxury in the most beautiful and tranquil settings, paradise !!!”

We decided to try Zante for the first time with our friends and we were not disappointed. Arrivals at airport went smoothly taking just 25 mins to pass through. Having collected our hire car, the drive to the villa only took 40 minutes through spectacular scenery and unprecedented views of the Ionian Sea and neighbouring Kefalonia.

The first impression on arrival at the villa was the beautiful pool area and spectacular views. The gardens are really well tended and add to the ambience of the property.

The villa itself was spotless and tastefully furnished. The kitchen facilities met all our needs (who uses a microwave on holiday anyway when there is so much choice of fresh food available in any case !!!!). The tv works with the DVD unit but had no need of this added extra. Would be handy if you have kids to keep them entertained while cooking etc.

The thing that we both remember most is the peace and tranquil setting just a mere 5 minutes stroll from the sea. The Sulphur beach at Xigia is amazing and really popular with an excellent taverna serving fantastic food. The villa owners can hardly be blamed for the very occasional waft of sulphur coming from xigia lol!!!

We all enjoyed using the terrace and built in bbq spending our evenings eating local food and drinks whilst watching the most amazing night skies we have ever seen before.

Yes the villa is built into a hillside which gives it unrivalled views across the sea as far as the Greek mainland!!

We would recommend this villa holiday to anyone who likes beautiful scenery, fantastic people, peace and quiet, and with easy reach of the shops bars and unspoilt beaches of Alykes and Alykanas.

“Good part of the island, but some things should be taken into account”
Reviewed 5 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Travelling with 4 friends, total 6 people.
Limited response from the owner + received the wrong scheme how to reach villa.

Location:
1. Nice, quiet part of the island, but close to Xigia sulphuric sources and a really strong smell nearby.
2. In description was stated that it's 80m from the sea, but reality it's 280m and villa is on the hill - difficult to climb + no good sea entrance near villa.
3. It's close to some small stores and the beaches (go to the left from villa), but if you want to buy fresh seafood or good meat for BBQ you should go to Zakinthos city to a shore (approx. 25 km)

Design: for us it was inconvenient to have 2 bedrooms on the 1st floor with direct access to swimming pool and having kitchen on the 2nd floor. Every evening we have to bring all kitchen staff and food to BBQ zone and than back to 2nd floor.

Equipment:
1. In general we had a lot of things, but some points were missing, like: Microwave oven, marquise (direct sun till 1p.m. with no shadow at all), we missed 2 beach chairs, no TV at all and no wi-fi.
2. Some things require repair, like light in the pool or TV.

Thank your for your review. I have a 100% response rate and always endeavour to be as helpful as possible with clients, but there are limits as to how much information I can give. The villa description gives accurate distances and information as to what is available both in the surrounding areas and equipment held in the villa. It does not state that WiFi is connected, therefore I would assume you would realise that it was not available, I have not been asked before if WiFi is connected and if I was I would respond. The advert states that the villa is on a hill and this is obvious from the photographs. The layout is also clearly stated and as you can read from other reviews, this has never been an issue, it is the way it is. Xigia is known to be next to the sulphur caves, this is one of its attractions for people with skin complaints, the smell of sulphur can be stronger at times but this is something which is out of my control and again has never been an issue before. I gave you accurate details of where the villa was situated and where you could find the key. Unfortunately, you went to the wrong villa, (there are only 4) and entered by damaging the key holder of that villa, which I have subsequently had to pay for. The beach is very close to the villa, down the hill and there is a very nice taverna just before it. The villa is 80 m from the sea, the beach entrance is a little further due to the lay of the land but I would dispute that this is a problem and again, has never posed an issue. The nearest shops for fresh meat and fish would be in Katastari, which is only a 10-15 minute drive away. I would dispute that you would have to drive to Zakynthos for anything. Alykes and Alykanas are also near by. The advert does not state that there is a marquee, which is what I assume you mean. There is a veranda outside the bedrooms which can provide shade, and a parasol available. I agree that 2 chairs were missing and this has been rectified. The TV is not connected to Sky due to local problems which are beyond my control. The advert states that any damage incurred during your stay would be chargable to yourselves. The management who maintain the villa reported that your party caused extensive damage to the villa and left it in an unacceptable state, chairs in the pool amongst other things. I did not charge you for this or the damage caused to the neighbouring villa. I regret that you found so much fault with both the villa and the surrounding area.

“Beautiful Villa - Lovely Location”
Reviewed 4 November 2013 for a stay in October 2013

We have just returned from a week at C & D Villas and were not dissappointed - Spotless and clean with beautiful views, and everything you need for a self catering holiday included in the villa. We went out of season (Oct/Nov) but weather was still between 29 and 32 every day - visited a local Taverner and as we had not been before we asked the owner to bring us what he wanted and we were not dissapponted and for 85 Euros was a steel - food for 5 adults and 3 hungry teenages with wine and soft drink flowing - absolute bargain! As it was out of season we didnt expect to get up to much sightseeing and the point of our break was to "Chill" and the Villa had a great pool for the kids to play and the adults to cool off with a few wines/beers - there is a BBQ by the pool which we found very handy and would recommend this villa as great place to stay.
