Olive Grove Villa Property Details



20 min from Zakynthos Airport by car a 15 min drive to Zante town, 10 min from the resort of Agios Sostis, 10 min from Keri Lake, 5 min from Kaminia Beach and 5 min from Lithakia.


This stunning stone-built villa has over 100 sq mts of internal space plus extra external areas, front and rear verandas, and balcony area with table and chairs. The villa is situated in a beautiful quiet location set among olive groves. The swimming pool is absolutely gorgeous, and has been specially designed to compliment the villa. We have a large traditional barbecue for relaxing al fresco dining. The balcony views of surrounding area and villages are breathtaking. A welcome pack will be provided for our guests.

Each year, organic extra-virgin olive oil is produced from the olives picked from the garden and a bottle of it is provided for free to guests during their stay.


Olive Grove Villa is located amongst the olive grove area of Lithakia on the Ionian Sea island of Zakynthos, Greece. The villa is close to all amenities and situated in an area on the island that does not close after the end of October!

The weather is still often warm and sunny in the winter months, making this ideal for winter sun breaks, a perfect getaway for both children and adults. Long winter rentals available, at attractive rates.

Nearby there are colourful shops, local bakeries along with friendly Greek family-run Tavernas, Restaurants & Bars that serve inviting international cuisine and delicious Greek dishes, Vegetarian included!

Just a 15 min walk from the villa there is the beautiful award winning sandy beach of Porto Koukla,

A short 10 minutes drive takes you to the beach at Agios Sostis from where you can either hire a boat or be taken on a boat trip to see the loggerhead turtles on the small uninhabited island of Marathonis.

Lithakia is a Venetian-style village and one of the oldest on the island. Encircled by beautiful olive groves, it is ablaze with greens and blues and offers visitors a tranquil beach based holiday where you can really unwind. The gently curving coastline looks out at the glass like waters of the beautiful Ionian Sea and the resort has a friendly, relaxed ambience that entices visitors back year after year.

The village is located between the two resorts of Keri Lake and Laganas on the south east coast of the island. Lithakia is untouched by tourism, so you can gain the best of both worlds with the peace and quiet of Lithakia and the lively town of Laganas within easy reach.

There are countless coastal walks from the resort, through the verdant hills and beautiful olive groves that border the town.

Further along the coastline, there are historical monuments of interest for those craving some Greek culture.

If you wish to explore the rest of the island and don’t wish to drive there are buses available.

Buses

There is bus service available for almost every destination in Zakynthos as it has a good network of roads that covers the entire island.

The central bus station (KTEL) is located in Zakynthos Town on the road close to the hospital (Mothonaio Street) and is a brand new building with a ticket office displaying prices, departure times and destinations, a cafe, snack bar, press and souvenir shop.

Family from Longniddry, United Kingdom Jul 2016

We loved this villa. Spotlessly clean, lots of space, amazing grounds and pool. Well placed to see the sights of the south easily, so close to the airport and just off the main route but lovely and quiet in the olive groves. Air conditioning was much appreciated and the pool was a lovely temperature. Thank you Dennis for all your attention during our stay

Friends from Reading, United Kingdom Sep 2014

4 of us stayed at the Olive grove villa on the 12th September 2014 for 10 nights.
We had an incredible time.
We arrived and was so happy with the villa, its been kept in perfect order by Dennis & his family.

Dennis gave us plenty of tips.
We was all told to try the food at Dennis Taverna, the guys at the Taverna would pick us up and dro p us back after our meal and drinks.

The island is beautiful and the villa is a real gem!
We intend on going back!!

Thanks for having us, we would couldnt recommend this villa highly enough.

Thank you

Janine from Derby We stayed in Olive Grove Villa in August 2010 with our two children and my parents. We have a wonderful time and there was more than enough room for the six of us. Location was excellent. We needed a car but not a problem. We spent most of our time at the Villa as there was no need to go elsewhere the facilities were more than ample and we would all definately go back. Review taken from trip advisor November 2011 from a stay in August 2010

Paul from Cowes Fantastic example of a modern Zakynthos Villa with fabulous facilities and a great location for a quiet, relaxing holiday. More than enough room for 6 adults and 2 children. Lots of room for the children to play, private pool and BBQ. Good range of utensils, TV, safety deposit box on site. Although the villa is within walking distance to the beach, would recommend hiring a cars as the villa is set in olive groves away from the main resorts, transportation is also handy for food supplies and exploring the island. Booking was completely hassle free and the owners and maintenance staff were a pleasure to deal with. Would not hesitate to go back. One of the beat Villas I have stayed in on the island - thoroughly recommend it. Review from trip advisor November 2011 from a stay in May 2010

Millly , England lovely peaceful away from it all villa. car essential . well equipped and more than enough room for our family of 4. excellent house keeping by friendly locals. owners a pleasure to book with. Review taken from trip advisor December 2011 from a stay in August 2009

Imfarr from Gibraltar I stayed at this villa with my husband and another couple when a mutual friend got married on the island. The location was superb - really felt like we were away from it all, but not isolated, given that we had neighbours. It was very quiet with absolutely no disturbances from anyone, so if you are looking for a tranquil setting which isnt too remote, this one would be ideal. Its just a short drive to civilisation, although you really do need a car if you stay here. The villa itself was clean and tidy with 3 good sized bedrooms. Four adults sharing certainly didnt feel like a squash with plenty of room downstairs in the open plan layout. The garden was very spacious, allowing us all to spread out on the sun-loungers. We also had a decent sized table for eating al fresco. The pool wasnt huge but a good size and was very inviting in the heat! We also had a large barbeque, which enabled us to invite another couple round for dinner one evening, with no problems getting everything cooked at once. There were a couple of bits of maintenance that needed attending to and the garden really needed a tidy up as the lawn was a little overgrown, but overall, we were very happy with the rental and couldnt fault the owner, Denis, for his courteous, promt service.

Adam from Welwyn Garden City Set in the heart of the olive groves, the villa was much more than we expected. We went to Zante to get married and wanted to stay in the real Greece.This certainly is a sample of real Greece. The photos dont do the villa anywhere near as much justice as it deserves - its gorgeous, the location is perfectly quiet and private, and you have easy access to local shops and tavernas. The island is fantastic and the people are great. We found the villa was perfect for us. Very clean, spacious and extremely well maintained. Perfect for groups, families or anyone wanting a relaxing holiday. We will definitely be going back to Olive Grove Villa. A big thanks to Dennis and Vasso review taken from Trip Advisor February 2012 from a stay in June 2011

Liz from West Sussex We had a wonderful stay at the villa. If it is a tranquil, peaceful holday you are looking for then this is the villa for you. There were four adults and one infant in our family and it was suitable for everyone. A car is essential but if you enjoy walking there are wonderful walks in the olive groves. Review from Trip Advisor February 2012, from a stay in June 2011 Very good place to see the rest of the island by car. Pool kept very clean as was villa.

Caroline from Lanark Beautiful well equiped villa set in private grounds - perfect place for children to play. Pool was perfectly clean & well maintained. Couldnt have asked for anything better! Review from Trip Advisor February 2012 for a stay in July 2010

Kerry and Steve from Plymouth - June 2013 My husband and I spent two relaxing weeks at the Olive Grove Villa. Everything outside and inside the villa was clean and perfect and a credit to the owners, (also the grounds to the villa were much bigger than the pictures depict). The cleaning company were discreet and didnt impose on our time away. We only hired a car for four days while we were there, as we really wanted to spend as much time at the villa as we could. We phoned to reserve an evening meal at Denniss Taverna which was nearby and were delighted to find that they pick you up and return you home at the time of your choice, which was fantastic after having a few drinks. Would recommend a car for those who do not fancy the tranquility that we sought. Dennis and Varna very help with preliminary and follow up enquiries. Kerry and Steve.

Sarah F London, United Kingdom “Beautiful villa, peaceful holiday, everything you need to relax.” Reviewed 17 April 2012 for a stay in April 2012 Dennis was so helpful in booking the villa and in providing lots of advice and help. The villa was immaculate. Weather in April was cold so the open fire was used every day. We really felt a car was essential as the pavements and roads are not safe enough to walk along. The island is beautiful and a great place to escape to. Our only suggestion would be for the villa to have a visitors book so previous guests can share information about places to go and eat etc with some information about the local area. Also some simple information like the washing machine selec tion for a normal wash. We left our maps to help the next guests. We would book again but not in April.

Zoe M Bury St Edmunds, England, United Kingdom “A beautiful, immaculate villa set in an idyllic, quiet location.” Reviewed 23 August 2012 for a stay in July 2012 This villa and its location are perfect for those who require a tranquil and relaxing holiday. Set in the heart of olive groves, its panoramic surroundings portray the real, rustic Greece. Although there are 3 other Greek villas nearby, it is such a quiet location and the only noise honestly heard is the sound of crickets in the trees and the odd bleat of a rural goat. Whilst staying here we really did feel like we were away from it all. As a family who enjoy getting out and about, we would recommend hiring a car to experience Greek culture and its local places of interests. The villa itself is only 15 minutes from the airport, 20 minutes to Zante town, Kalamki and beautiful beaches such as Porto Zorro beach (which was beautiful and perfect for snorkelling in the crystal blue sea). A further 10 minutes drive is Tsvili, where we had a great day with the children at the Water Park. Tsilivi beach and restaurants are also worth a visit. Locally to the villa, Porto Kukla and Agosi Stotis beaches are stunning. The traditional tavernas along Agosi Stotis beach front are extremely friendly and the local food was exceptionally good. Lastly the villa and pool were spotless, the kitchen was modern and clean and the air con extremely appreciated!

andyholl8 Pontefract, United Kingdom “superb holiday had by all” Reviewed 2 September 2012 for a stay in June 2012 Great property fantastic location if you like it quiet. Trying to think of a negative but nothing comes to mind. You will need a car its about 10 mins to nearest beaches and about the same to the nightlife in Laganas. Dennis the owner was very helpful nothing was too much trouble he arranged for us to pick our car up at the airport and provided directions wich was very straight forward. I will be stopping at this property again without a doubt. Fantastic.

cheryle w Southampton, United Kingdom “Very relaxing and enjoyable holiday” Reviewed 14 September 2012 for a stay in September 2012 lovely clean villa, pool lovely and kept very clean very peaceful and quiet area, if you like walking. there are lots of walks thru the olive groves down to the small village with lots of eating places, and small shops car is essential though for exploring the rest of the Island which was very easy. Surrounded by nature, goats in the groves and chickens walking everywhere. Would definitely recommend this Villa.

Jonswanse Pontardulais, Wales, United Kingdom “Fabulous holiday - enjoyed by all” Reviewed 23 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013 We booked at very last minute and Dennis and family couldnt be more accommodating. We did hire a car as a little too far to walk for small children. We went with our 4 children which age between 1 and 15 and they all enjoyed the villa,especially the pool. It worked out great as when the little one needed a nap we didnt need to get the others out of the pool like in hotels. The villa was lovely and clean and had everything needed for a great holiday. The location was lovely and peaceful. I have no hesitation in recommending olive grove villa to anyone. Would love to return one day and so would my children.
