A fabulous holiday
We had a fabulous stay at Allegria Villas with our two teenage children. Dimitri and Lia gave us a very warm welcome and were on hand to help out with anything we needed. The villa was very clean and comfortable and was furnished beautifully to compliment the traditional stone buildings. Outside, the pool and terrace were nicely kept with extra touches such as a hammock that made it feel unique and special.
The complex is a short walk away from the village centre and is in the quiet of an olive grove. While the villa did have another villa immediately next to it, it was still secluded and did not feel overlooked by other guests. The small village provides everything you need: a supermarket, a few tavernas, beaches and bus stop, and it is also possible to walk to other places such as Gerakas if you want to go a bit further (approx. 30mins on foot). Some of the local beaches are quite busy but there are also smaller, quieter ones if you prefer and the sea is lovely to spend time in.
Our week at Allegria Villas was relaxing, in a really lovely place which we would strongly recommend.Jenny & Clive Townsley Hertfordshire, UK
Wonderful place :)
10/10 for this AMAZING villa in a fantastic location! Just in case you’re wondering, it really is as good as it looks!
Host: Lia is such a lovely person and the perfect host; She was in contact as soon as we booked and always responded quickly to any queries we had. After we arrived she always went above and beyond the call of duty to help us with all things great and small, eg. booking activities, exploring the island and recommendations for eating etc. Thanks Lia for making us so welcome and being so generous with your time!
Villa: the villa is EXACTLY as described. The Mediterranean furnishings are beautiful and the attention to detail was really impressive; it was spotlessly clean and had a warm atmosphere that felt like home. The beds were really big and super comfortable, the kitchen had all the modern conveniences and there was a large living area downstairs with another decent sized kitchen. The pool was very well-maintained, with an attendant that came twice a day to clean, and the surrounding gardens were really well kitted out with hammocks, loungers and a BBQ. The villa is idea for families, it’s tucked away from the main village so it’s nice and quiet at night.
Surrounding area: a really nice place for families and much, much quieter than the surrounding “party” areas. The villa is only a 5 minute walk to a few really nice restaurants (local fish dishes are fantastic) and a quiet beach with free parking and sun loungers. It’s a really great base for exploring the island.
In summary I really couldn’t fault this property and the hosts, we will definitely be returningGina Galli Manchester, UK

Un petit paradis
Les cigales, le calme, les paysages, les gens, tout est agréable sur Zakynthos!
Nous avons passé une semaine début aout dans l’un des appartements du bâtiment principal. Très spacieux, décoré avec gout et avec une architecture esthétique.
Des balcons terrasses pour profiter du paysage et des brises légères bien agréables. La climatisation pour les nuits chaudes du début aout.
Nous étions une famille de 5 personnes et nous sentions comme a la maison. C’était difficile de quitter les lieux!
Lia est très gentille et prévenante et nous a bien aides pour les visites et la location de voiture.
Le ménage était fait tous les jours.
A quelques minutes a pied, il y a la plage, une partie animée, et une partie plus calme avec des rochers pour découvrir les poissons.
A coté un restaurant agréable, et un peu plus loin, des petites épiceries.
Vasilikos a garde une certaine authenticité.
La ville de Zakynthos est très vivante le soir, avec tous les gens dans les rues pour profiter de l’air plus clément. Beaucoup de cafés, restaurants avec des prix raisonnables.
La plage Navagio, avec son bateau échoue est magnifique mais souffre d’une trop grande fréquentation.
Les grottes bleues sont magiques et on peut s’y baigner. Privilégier des petits bateaux pour les visites.
L’eau est claire comme le cristal.
C’était notre premier séjour en Grèce. Nous reviendrons. (le plus tôt possible!)
Meilleurs souvenirs Lia!Philippe, Orsolya et les enfants. France

Thank you so much for our quick visit, and at the end of the session. It was our first visit to Zakythnos to give us a taste of the island and your villas. We loved it and hope to return again when the weather is even better. The villa was comfortable and had everything we needed.Amanda London
Beautiful Villas, Perfect location to relax
We stayed 9 nights in one of the gorgeous private villas. They are large enough for 7/8 people to sleep comfortably with 3 bedrooms, 2 living room/kitchen areas, 2 bathrooms, jacuzzi, pool, large garden area, sunbeds, outdoor dining area and outdoor bbq area and parking space. It is just up the hill from the Tavernas and mini-markets. The local tavernas are great – family run, great food. The villas are within easy walking distance to the infamous St. Nicholas Beach and Banana beach, as well as several others. There is coastline in every direction. We went towards the end of the season for Vasilikos so there are still people around and things going on but it is very peaceful and the beaches are not so crowded. Very relaxing and also plenty to do for families/groups.
The owner Dimitri was very welcoming and a great tour guide. He showed us the city and the local supermarkets. If in a large group it would probably be worth hiring a car for a day or two to go to the larger supermarkets. it’s really eay to get around and also to get to the city. There are buses from just outside the town as well or from Banana beach.
We would definately go back, the villas are gorgeous and have everything you could need during your stay. The weather was perfect too. Thank you very much to Dimitri and Faye for showing us around!Claire and Ricki Bristol, UK
Just lovely…Perfect for relaxing break
Alegria Villas are just lovely and I would recommend them to anyone looking for a good quality stay in Zakynthos.
Susan and I stayed in one of the lovely two bedroomed apartments in the main Villa. The apartment is spacious and well decorated with rustic charm, all the facilities you need and plenty of room. The aircon was very effective. Plenty of linen, towels, beach towels. Kitchen well equipped with the basics. Daily cleaners to make sure it’s always clean and tidy. Two veranda’s to sit on. There was a lovely pool for use, which was quiet too and great for a dip after the beach.
We walked two minutes to the local beach each day which is a beach of two halves – one quiet and the other busier with water sports and a bar.
Vasilikos is very much old style Greek island village, tavernas, and hotels dotted around but nothing too in your face and nothing like Laganas and Kalamaki which are to be avoided ! We really rated taverna Mesala in the village…
The Villas are owned and managed by Dimitri and Lea (excuse spelling) and they were lovely, friendly, helpful and great for local advice.
We hired a car which was great for whizzing around…zakynthos town, Keri, Bocalis, etc. Really recommended.
Timing wise, we came in the third week of September and that’s a great time if you want out of season, but daily great temperatures and lovely warm sea!Nicky Hughes & Susan Westland London
Perfect in every way
A perfect little haven in what we’ve discovered to be the best part of the island. If you want to be away from the busy bars and typical all day english breakfasts that Laganas/Kalamaki offers, then this is the place for you.
Vasilikos has retained all of its Greek charm boasting local tavernas, beautiful sandy beaches, and great little beach bars all within walking distance.
There is also a lovely hotel with pool and bar area free to use at all times just down the road 2 minutes away. The local beaches offer jet ski’s and other water sports. On top of that there’s a few local supermarkets to stock up during your stay.
If you’ve visited Vasilikos or Greece before you’ll not be disappointed as everyone is very friendly and helpful.
This is our third trip to the island, and our second time staying at Alegria Villas. We are a family of four including two teenage boys and there is something for all of us here.
The Villas themselves are well designed and built with plenty of space. They are kept clean throughout your stay. The bedrooms are roomy and nicely decorated with a balconies and terrific sea views. The kitchen is large enough to cook a family meal easily with enough pans, utensils etc. The bathrooms both have showers, and there is ample space to lounge and dine.
There’s a great outside area to all Villas to chill, nice when you’re having breakfast planning your day or in the evening after a long day exploring the island, or at the beach.
We hired our own little boat which we have easily done twice for not very much money – one of the boys highlights to the holiday – which was great fun. We went out to one of the other small islands which has its own ice cream boat which stops to serve anyone there.
At Alegria Villas expect a very warm welcome with advice on what to do for your holiday. The hosts are the nicest people you could hope to meet. The Villas are of a very high standard, we couldn’t ask for any more.
We will definitely be back again soonLeigh and Matt
Holiday in Zakynthos 2015
We would like to thank Dimitri and Lia for the wonderful vacation and hospitality in Allegria villas. It is very romantic and comfortable house. We were four persons from Bulgaria and stayed there for 6 nights and enjoyed the beatiful nature. We recommend this place to people who want to have a holiday in Zakynthos.Vesi
