The house has been interior designed with luxury living in mind. Beautiful muted tones and soft linens have been used throughout the property. But it is the stunning outdoor pool that will really blow you away. Large, sweeping marble steps will take you from the villa to the fabulous pool terrace, framing a 13.5m x 6m beautiful mosaic-lined pool with sunbathing terrace. There is a heated Jacuzzi that sits up to 10 people, comfortable sun loungers and day bed, bar area and secluded chill-out zones throughout garden.

About Helen Taylor

I am a busy mum of four who just couldn't resist the challenge of building our dream house in Greece. I have a passion for interior design and landscaping and have been thrilled to create a property that is both luxurious but family friendly. My four children range from a baby to a teenager so all their needs have been catered for at Lagaria. My husband and I love cooking and entertaining so we wanted to create a fabulous cooking and eating area and love cooking pizza on our authentic wood fired oven. We wanted to make sure that the villa had all the mod-cons but retained the charm and softness associated with the island. I hope you feel we have achieved this.

Helen Taylor purchased this villa in 2013

Why Helen Taylor chose Skinaria

We love Zakynthos with is stunning green natural beauty. Every time we drive to the villa we are always impressed by the sweeping views to the sea, the wild flowers in spring and the vast swathes of Olive and Cypress tress.

This part of the island in my opinion is the prettiest part of the island and although there is plenty to do we are tucked away from the busier southern resorts.

We love the direct flights and still can't get over how we can be in rainy cold England in the morning and by lunch time we can be sitting eating Calamari with Tatsiki by the beach.

What makes this villa unique

Our children love the pool, the boules court and just hanging out in the hammocks. We love the fact that they spend all day in and out of the pool, running around the large garden, climbing trees and exploring the surrounding area. The fresh air, sun and sea air seems to be a tonic to all of us. When the children are in bed my husband and I can retreat to the jacuzzi with a glass of bubbly or curl up in front of the outdoor fire.Bliss!

Beautiful Lagaria

  • 5 of 5

Lagaria lived up to its description. We have never stayed in a more luxurious villa. The owners had furnished it as their own home, with impeccable taste. Nothing was lacking and every eventuality was catered for. We were greeted and made very welcome by the guest manager and given a tour of the villa and it’s facilities. Lagaria is in a very quiet spot , but within driveable distance of beaches, local port and tavernas. We would certainly like to return again and would recommend the villa to friends and family

October in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We booked Lagaria over October half-term holiday, as a last last-ditch attempt to get some sun before winter closed in. The property is set in the quiet hills, about 45 minutes (of twisty driving) from the airport. It is set in substantial grounds with amazing views down to the sea, and the villa itself is finished to a remarkable standard. In addition, there is a tremendous amount of indoor space - we were two families of four and five, and although we were stuck inside on two days because of heavy rain, we were never under each others feet.

We used the services of the local chef (the excellent building manager Denia's mother) for several nights, which took a lot of the hassle out of it, and also used the pizza oven one night to (reasonably) good results!

There is everything here for families of all ages - pool, Jacuzzi, indoor and outdoor games, gardens, an abundance of seating areas inside and out, and easy access to the pleasures of the island. We really cannot recommend it highly enough.

Just Stunning

  • 5 of 5

Truly the most gorgeous place we have ever stayed. The villa is stunning – beautifully designed and with everything you could wish for (and more!) – in a perfect setting. Both the owner and the villa manager were incredibly helpful when booking and while we were there – nothing was too much trouble. It was fantastic to be able to order shopping in advance and to have George the baker deliver fresh bread and croissants to the door every morning! Everything about it was perfect from start to finish. Counting the days till we go back later this year!

Incredible Villa - ultra luxurios real haven

  • 5 of 5

My family and I enjoyed an incredible week at Lagaria. It was very easy to book and the owners couldn't be more helpful. It really lives up to its five star rating. The decor was understated but really elegant. The bedrooms were gorgeous and we fell in love with the games room and outside pizza oven! The children loved playing in the pool and when we fancied a bit more in the way of activities and water sports we headed to local beach club Peligoni. We had a wonderful stay and have already told all our friends and rebooked for next year. Highly recommended.
