Holiday Rental House -
3 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 6
Volimes, Zakynthos, Ionian Islands
Stone-built house with stunning sunset views over the Ionian sea towards Kephalonia. Ideal for those seeking rest, relaxation and tranquility, 10 minutes drive to various beaches and tavernas. Stravatha is located on the side of a hill overlooking the sea in north west Zakynthos. It is difficult to see another man-made object from the house. What you'll see are rolling hills, the sea and the most beautiful sunsets on the whole of the island. What you will hear are cicadas and distant goat bells. What you'll smell are wild thyme and the scent of warm pine.

Stravatha is a very spacious 3 bedroom house (2 doubles and an upstairs twin). There are two wet rooms, a large entrance arch room with 3 seater sofa and exit to the back terrace. The kitchen/diner/lounge is a large split level open plan room with exit straight out from the lo...

About the neighbourhood
Stravatha is on the side of a hill overlooking the sea. The views are incredible and the house is surrounded by olive groves and pine forests. It offers a feeling of beautiful seclusion despite being only 1.5km from the nearest 'town' (Volimes), which has a cafe, bakery, small shop, etc. So, in that sense, it's the best of both worlds. Stravatha is the right place for you if you want to 'get away from it all' and experience the tranquility of an island in the Ionian.

The nearest beach is Agios Nikolaos (a 10-minute drive away), where you will also find good tavernas, a small supermarket, a petrol station, etc.
Getting around
You'll need to hire a car to get around (public transport is scarce), but having a car makes it much easier to explore the island.
