About the Owner

I have five children who have enjoyed coming to Yerakina over the years. As someone who runs art courses in England and in Greece, Yerakina provides a beautiful backdrop to inspire those who stay. I also love reading, walking, swimming, sailing, animal and bird-life as well as hosting dinner and drinks parties which Yerakina can host very well.

Idyllic villa.

  • 5 of 5

Situated high above the shore with views across the Ionian Sea to Cephalonia and along the coast, Yerakina is in a stunning position. It is also very well placed to explore the North part of the island and the many local restaurants. The villa itself is decorated with warm Mediterranean touches and is equipped to the highest standard. It is supremely comfortable for ten people and with the wonderful pool, balcony and terraces there are plenty of places either to congregate or to escape the party and find peace and quiet. It is so obviously loved and cherished by the owner who maintains it in sparkling condition. I could not recommend it more highly.

Amazing villa - incredible 180 degree views!

  • 5 of 5

Our trip to Yerakina last June was glorious. The villa is set into the highest part of the north-east end of the island, with majestic views over olive groves and far out to sea. Unlike a lot a places you find online it looked exactly like the photos and in real life was enhanced by the incredible 180 degree views and peacefulness.

The interior of the villa reinforces the feeling that you are actually in a private property – one that belongs to somebody with great taste in furniture and art, and the exterior is made up of the pool and a number of terraces where we enjoyed long breakfasts/lunches - and ideal for entertaining in the evening. The seating areas on each end of the main terrace are perfect for sunbathing by day and stargazing by night.

The house log book gave us lots of useful info about the north part of the island – the best tavernas, bars, supermarkets etc, most of which are a short 10 minute drive away. We’d particularly recommend visiting La Historia for dinner (ask for a table on the beach) and Dennis’s in Volimes.

Yerakina is the perfect villa for families or a group of friends. Would highly recommend!!

A remarkable property, divine view, just perfect.

  • 5 of 5

The villa is set up on an olive clad hillside and has the most wonderful view across Zakynthos to the distant Peloponnese and islands as far as Ithaca. The facilities and pool are perfect as are the walks, local restaurants and the beautiful azure sea, which is only a short drive away. Ideal for anyone who wants to experience a holiday in an unspoilt, beautiful part of Greece.

Owner's Response: I think every villa owner says they have a beautiful view but when you hear others confirm it really is stunning - we want our guests to enjoy it as we do.

A villa with a definite wow factor!

  • 5 of 5

We have been lucky enough to stay in this villa about 6 times, as guests of the owners and renting it ourselves. The view is simply spectacular and the villa awesome - more than comfortable, extremely well appointed with many lovely pictures (mostly painted by the owner herself), fabulous pool, pretty garden, and choice of terraces on which to sit or sleep. It feels like a proper home. The bedrooms all have their own bathrooms and lovely views. It is easy to drive down or up to local villages to eat out, lots of beautiful walks with amazing scenery. Go in the spring and enjoy the flowers which are to die for, or late summer when the sea is at its warmest. August is hot, but not unbearably so because it is up high and catches the breeze. It is also the time to take advantage of the Peligoni Club while it is in full swing. Couldn't recommend it more highly.

Owner's Response: I always love hearing that guests have felt like the house is a home and that it is true escapism - away from noise and bright lights but these can be sort should one want it.

Notes:

  • Notes on accommodation: Yerakina is situated high in the hills at the northern end of the island of Zakynthos - the Venetian 'Zante' or flower of the Levant. With stunning panoramic views over olive groves and cypress trees, you look across the aquamarine sea to mainland Greece and Cephalonia. At 1000 ft above sea level you escape the heat and humidity of the coast below and yet the sea and the English run Peligoni club are a mere 10 minute drive down the hill from the villa. Within easy reach are hidden coves, ancient monasteries and a wonderful variety of tavernas. Arranged on two floors, you enter the villa at the top level. The accommodation comprises: Top floor: Large living, dining and kitchen area. Well-appointed sitting area centred around a charming open fire place. Four ensuite double bedrooms lead off the living area. Two identical master bedrooms have ensuite bathrooms. The two secondary double bedrooms have an extra pull-out bed with proper mattress and ensuite shower rooms. Outside: The spacious terraced area includes a large swimming pool, covered lunching area, built-in barbecue and ping pong table and ample space for sun bathing or just relaxing in the shade of the main veranda. Utility Room: This is where the washing machine is stored. Cleaning / Towels / Linen / Maid service: Cleaner (Eva) who comes every other day, towels, hand towels, linen are all provided for.
