Paliokaliva Village
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 23 October 2012

We went to Paliokaliva Village during our summer holiday in August 2012. The villas are excelent, just how you see it in the images. The yard and restaurant were really welcoming and gave you the holiday feeling :)

The staff received us very very well, they made our stay even more pleasant. The food was great, besides breakfast we took our dinner there almost every evening. They even organized a barbecue evening for the village's guests.

I highly recommend this place if you plan on going to Zakynthos! In our opinion it is the best place to stay for the perfect relaxing holiday.

We had the pleasure of staying at Paliokaliva Village in June-July 2012. We stayed in a 2 bedroom unit with our 3 boys and my in-laws stayed in a one bedroom unit next to ours. It was perfect- very clean, quiet, quaint, family-run and a beautiful setting with olive grove and sea views. It was nice to be outside of the touristy area. A car is a must and we enjoyed choosing a different beach every day. We would love to go back!

We stayed at this hotel on the 7th August - 14th August as a couple as we were attending a wedding on the Island. We booked this beauitful place after reading excellent reviews on Tripadvisor.

Paliokaliva Village is situated just outside of Tsilivi a 25 minute walk or 7 euros one way in a taxi. Reception booked them and they were normally with us in 10 minutes.

Hotel Amenties Big pool never felt over crowded could always get a sunbed and sometimes even had the pool to ourselves.

The Villas were so gorgeous and one of the best propertys we have stayed in on holiday.

The food was very good for snacks and very reasonable.

The Service we received from all staff members were excellent.

Overall we had a fantastic holiday and if you are looking for a holiday which is laid back and a hidden gem Paliokaliva is the place for you.

We were so pleased to find somewhere that lived up to the pictures and the reviews. A beautiful location, excellent service, amazing staff and great food. As a family with one child age 9 it was perfect for us.
If you want nightlife and entertainment then stay somewhere else but if you are looking for sun, food, peace and tranquility then this cannot be beaten.
Beach is a mile away and quite a walk in the heat of summer so you need a car to get to it. Supermarket only 5 minute walk that sells everything. Restaurant in the resort is excellent but also the one opposite is good.
Tsilivi (2 km drive) is loud, brash and touristy - we visited once and that was enough although had some great bakerys to pick up breakfast.
We did a tour of the island one day and it was OK, you can find some nice beaches but the real find of this island is Paliokaliva village.

Our family stayed for 2 weeks in July and had a fantastic time. The houses are lovely and grounds and pool area very attractive. Anastasia and her staff were exceptional, and the food was out of this world. Authentic Greek menu, with locally sourced fresh produce at very affordable prices. Once we discovered how good the food was, we did not go anywhere else. Oh, and the breakfasts just fab, with fresh fruit and pancakes, sitting overlooking the pool and view to the sea every morning.
If you want a quiet quality holiday, it is perfect. For our family, it was comfortable, clean and well maintained. Sunbeds with thick comfortable cushions and we hired a car through Anastasia, very resonable and delivered to our door. You can walk into the village, but it takes about 15 - 20 minutes (uphill coming back!). We walked down and got taxi back, 6 euros. Supermarket 5 mins away.
I thought about not writing a review as I don't want everyone to know about the little Greek Gem we found, but that would have not been fair for the staff who try very hard to make sure you have a great holiday, paying attention to detail with lots of lovely personal touches. We really felt like we had stayed with Greek people at their home and we were part of the family, we will most definatley be going back.

We have just returned from Paliokaliva Village - it was beautiful and totally recommended. We had a lovely villa, with an upstairs bedroom. It was all very tastefully decorated. The restaurant and pool area were delightful. This is an ideal place for people who like a quiet place to relax, it has a real feeling of calm to it.
We would recommend that you get a car, as it is worth getting out and about and seeing some of Zante. It is possible to walk to all the local restaurants, but not if you have small children. We also found a lovely local beach called Psarou.
