The word Almatheia is derived from the Greek word to soothe! Picture yourself on a beautiful Greek island, relaxing on a beach side chaise on the terrace of your own private villa, under a sun-kissed sky with the sparkling blue Ionian Sea a few short steps away from you. A place that you feel that the sea is almost your own private swimming pool. Feel your body relaxing in the warm sun, the cool sea breeze gently cascading over you and your stresses draining away. It's not a dream! It's Villa Almatheia on Zakynthos. Villa Almatheia consists of 3 two bedroom independent terraced houses and each with it's own landscaped garden, sea frontage and access to the beach.

Picture yourself on a beautiful Greek island, relaxing on a beach side chaise on the terrace of your own private villa, under a sun-kissed sky with the sparkling blue Ionian Sea a few short steps away from you. A place that you feel that the sea is almost your own private swimming pool. Feel your body relaxing in the warm sun, the cool sea breeze gently cascading over you and your stresses draining away. It's not a dream! It's Villa Almatheia on Zakynthos. Villa Almatheia consists of 3 two bedroom independent terraced houses and each with it's own landscaped garden, sea frontage and access to the beach. This true beachfront property is located in traditional Greek countryside area known as Drossia or also Kypseli on the beautiful island of Zakynthos with truly unforgettable spectacular unobstructed views of the Ionian Sea and Kefalonia. Drossia is on the North East coast of Zakynthos and between the resorts of Amoudi and Tsilivi. It's a tranquil, traditional area to enjoy your holiday amidst the natural greenery and beauty of Greece. The water here is clear and perfect for swimming. Although peaceful Drossia is conveniently located only 5kms from Tsilivi, 10kms from Zakynthos Town & 13 kms from the Airport. Villa Almatheia offers spacious and airy accommodation:- firstly on entering on the ground floor there is an open plan living/dining room with superb views, a fully fitted kitchen and a cloakroom with toilet and hand basin and a utility room for the washing machine/dryer. French doors from both living and dining areas give access to an open veranda with pergola, the garden and the sea. On the first floor there are two double bedrooms with floor to ceiling fitted wardrobes and breath-taking sea views. Again French doors from both bedrooms give access to a balcony with pergola. There is a bathroom with toilet, hand basin & bath/shower and then a 2nd separate room with shower & hand basin. The garden is arranged over two terraces. The upper terrace is grassed and has a stone paved patio with pergola where you can enjoy a barbecue or a relaxing drink. From the upper terrace a few stone steps take you down to the open paved lower terrace which is perfect for sunbathing. Also from the lower terrace 4 stone steps take you down to the pebble beach and sea. Spoil yourself, wake up each morning to spectacular sea views and spend every day swimming and relaxing in private by the beautiful clear waters of the Ionian Sea! Depending on the size of one's party, it is entirely possible to rent together the 3 adjacent villas which comfortable accommodate in total 12 persons, as each 2 bedroom separate house accommodates 4 persons or one can rent 2 adjacent villas which accommodate 8 persons or just the one which accommodates 4 person. Scattered along the west coast of mainland Greece the Ionian Islands are lush and green, with vast olive groves, tall cypress trees, imposing mountain landscapes, beautiful beaches and crystal clear blue waters. Each island has a natural beauty and a distinct tradition, cuisine and architecture. Zakynthos has a varied terrain, with fertile plains in the south-eastern part and mountainous terrain with steep cliffs along the coasts on the west. The mild, Mediterranean climate and the plentiful winter rainfall accounts for the island’s dense vegetation. The island was named Fiore di Levante by its Venetian rulers meaning Flower of the East because of its exceptional beauty. To the southwest is the National Marine Park of Zakynthos where loggerhead turtles (Caretta caretta) are found in the bay of Laganas. Caretta is an endangered species. Every year beginning in June the female turtles come to the southern beaches in order to bury their eggs in the sand. The western coast is refuge and breeding ground for another endangered species the Mediterranean monk seal. The locals are renowned for their hospitality which, together with the excellent climate and enchanting beauty of the island & why so many holidaymakers visit the island each year and return time and time again!
