Set amongst the olive groves in the tiny village of GERAKAS, to the south of the island of ZAKYNTHOS ZANTE, GREECE, is the three bedroom stone built Villa Karissa. A five minute walk to local shops, tavernas, the turtle research centre and the delightful Gerakas secluded and sandy beach. The town of Zante and its fishing port is just a 30 minute drive away.
It is the perfect place for a relaxing and peaceful time, exclusively yours for the duration of your stay
We are not a package holiday company, this is our own private villa, so you have to book your own flights from whatever airport you prefer and at times that suit you. Whilst we leave you alone while you're staying in our villa you're not totally abandoned as we do have our representatives to sort out any problems should they occur and to advise on excursions, car hire and local amenities should you need them to
The villa itself is 148sqm and the surrounding private garden is 1500sqm. The freshwater swimming pool is 8m x 3.5m and because the villa is south facing it captures the sunlight from dawn to dusk. Each room has its own superb view of either olive groves, mountain area or the Ionian Sea with views of surrounding Greek Islands. Boat trips and excursions are available locally to tour the island of Zante and ferry's to take you to Kafelonia or the Peloponnese Islands. The Ionian Sea surrounds a beautiful part of the world and you could be there taking in the sun, eating traditional Zakynthos dishes in many of our local tavernas or sitting in our garden under an olive tree.
A car is not essential at Villa Karissa as much of what you should require is within walking distance. But remember the villa is in one of the quieter parts of Zante and night clubs and discos are not available. Should you feel the need for a lively night out, Argassi is a 15 minute drive away. Argassi has a strip of bars and restaurants to suite all ages.
In view of the house having a raised terrace it is not ideally suited for young children and unfortunately we are unable to accommodate children under the age of 5 years
The Town of Zante & its fishing port is just a 30 minute drive away from the villa & is a must if you wish to see the culture of Zakynthos. Zante Town is the cultural centre of the island with a number of impressive museums & historical sites, busy coffee cafe's & restaurants that stretch along the entire length of the beautiful harbour & Marina. The back streets of Zante Town offer an array of colourful shops should you wish to buy a designer outfit or just pick up a local trinket to take back home. Zante Town truly is a magnificent place to visit!
Zante is one of the most popular of the Greek islands. There is something for everyone in this island paradise with numerous sandy beaches, mountain villages preserving the traditional Greek way of life, beautiful natural scenery, watersports and good quality restaurants, bars and nightclubs.
