About je ellis

Jane and Robert’s love affair with Zakynthos began 25 years ago when they toured the island’s mountainous chalk roads on motor bikes and were blown away by the stunning scenery and crystal clear blue Ionian sea. They vowed to come back one day. In 2000 they bought a beautiful piece of land with magnificent sea views and built a wonderful house. This they designed and brought to life with the help of an English architect friend. Jane managed the project and spent nine months living with the builders to see it through. In 2006 the house was featured on ‘Grand Designs’ We would like guests to experience the stunning natural beauty of the island, and the local community of Volimes who have made their lives there with their friendliness and old fashioned Greek hospitality.

je ellis purchased this villa in 2000

Why je ellis chose Greece

We have always had a a love affair with Greece and the people, we have been on holiday to Greece since we were students and in turn brought our family. In 2000 we had a marvelous holiday on Zakynthos and this encouraged us to come back and buy the land where we built Maistrali .The area is an EU designated area of outstanding natural beauty. The combination of sea and mountains and the views of Cephalonia make Maistrali as exciting today as it ever was and we are delighted to share this with our guests.

What makes this villa unique

The climate in summer is just perfect.Warm in the day and cool enough to sleep well at night. Total, privacy, silence, space, comfort, a tremendous feeling of well being, everything for your needs, everything works. Close by sports, restaurants ,bars and entertainment. The local people are hospitable and genuinely welcoming. There is no mass tourism at the north of Zakynthos.
