Villa overview - owner's description

The villa combines traditional architecture along with modern conveniences. The guest will discover an oasis among the industrialized tourist industry.

Limni Keriou (Keriou Lake), which is a famous island holiday spot with sunshine 320 days a year, is located 15 kilometers from the capital of the island. It is an ideal spot to spend relaxing holidays close to nature.

The villa is located 150 meters from the beach.

Whoever stays in this property, which combines traditional architecture along with modern conveniences, will discover an oasis among the industrialized tourist industry.

Politeness, a friendly attitude and a high level of service replace impersonal service.

All of this predisposes you to enjoying what nature so openhanded has to offer.

The Villa offers a fully equipped kitchen with all the essential utensils, providing you with full independence. You can also order breakfast, lunch or dinner by room service (extra charge).


Close to the villa there are little tavernas that serve traditional food from fresh fish to rabbit stew and from local ladotyri (oil cheese) to skordostoumbi (a garlic dish). The very good local wine accompanies the traditional musical compositions.


The quaint little bars also place their own musical stamp and are open from the daytime until late at night. That is where visitors often times wait so that they can admire the sunset.

Limni Keriou (Keriou Lake), along with the beach and the port of Keri, are located 15 kilometers from the city of Zakynthos on a verdant mountain bank. The area is called Limni Keriou (Keriou Lake) because of the lake that was there and which has now been drained.

In the gulf of Keri there is the beach and the island and today besides the fishing boats of the area and the little boats that carry out excursions, the little port is considered ideal for welcoming vessels as well.

The beach of Keri, with its sand and pebbles is an ideal spot for swimming.

On the road leading to the beach there are also diving school, a very interesting hobby for many visitors to the area. This is where the little boats start off from on the small, enjoyable cruises towards Marathonissi and the Blue caves.

Visitors can get fuel for their boat or car here, and there are also mini markets which cover ones needs but which also offer traditional products.

The bus stop is in front of the Villas so that you can visit the villages of Zakynthos that are nearby or further away.

The mountains surrounding the lake are green and full of pine trees, holm oaks and amazing paths, ideal for those who wish to take nature walks. The scenery has an interchange of hills with small fields.

Located at a distance of 5 kilometers is the island of Keri, with its stone houses and narrow streets. There are old homes, which can be described as significant samples of local architecture, and whose yards are full of sage, oregano, lavender, basil and bougainvilleas.

Across the way from the shore, the island of Marathonissi dominates and it imposingly adorns the gulf of Lagana. It has a perimeter of approximately one kilometer. The nature found there is exotic, the beach is exceptionally clean and the water is limpid. Besides the two beaches, one with pebbles and the other with sand, one can find rich vegetation.
On the golden, sandy beach that extends like a tongue into the sea, the Caretta-Caretta sea turtles make their nests. National Marine Park guards live there permanently and protect the island, the turtle and its eggs.
On the steep coast with the pebbles, there are two small sea caves, which can be entered with a small boat.

Passing through the village we reach the lighthouse (Faros), which is located on the edge of the steep cliff approximately 200 meters deep, and this lighthouse has for years helped ships navigate the area.
The view is amazing. Steep, imposing coasts and endless blue. A wild, imposing beauty. The mountainous landscape is cut into sheer peaks and steep coasts in the endless Ionian Sea. This is also the main characteristic of the western side of the island. Wherever you stop to look around, the forbidding rocks join the sea from within the glorification of unbelievable vegetation.
Here is where one can admire one of the most magical sunsets in Greece.

The people of Keri are friendly, courteous and hospitable, known for their talkativeness as well as their habit of accompanying their words with hand gestures. The local dialect is reminds one of singing many of the words used have Italian roots.

Despite the development of tourism that is mainly located in the area of Limni, the people of Keri work in the field of Agriculture. They mainly cultivate olives and vineyards. They produce oil and wine of excellent quality. On a smaller scale the inhabitants occupy themselves with fishing and the cultivation of garden produce. A favorite occupation is beekeeping the honey is then used to make the traditional pasteli (a sweet made with honey and sesame seeds). The islands housewives knead and bake their bread in ovens that they have built themselves.

Keri is truly unique, ideally combining natural beauty with human, friendly hospitality, mountains with the sea, the wild beauty with adventure, serenity with absolute fun. Just a visit to Keri is an unparalleled experience that will certainly not leave anyone unmoved.

Ondrej

From Pilsen

Kookis Village is probably the best property in the area of Keri (Southwest Zakynthos), perfectly maintained and equipped to a 4* hotel standard.
8 villas each with private pool create a semi-closed community but still keeping reasonable privacy of each house. They are definitely not separate houses though, it is merely a resort style of development. One would have to pay fortune to stay in a bungalow with private pool in similarly maintained resort.
Cleaning each day and competenet managing owners (brothers and their mum:) being there 24/7 gave us the feeling of comfort and security. We were three adults, one kid and one infant and we fit in the house perfectly. If there were more of us, it would be a hassle - only two bedrooms available.
Yes, we had to walk 200 meters to the beach and since the Keri lake is not a lake anymore but a field of reed, the sea view was limited only to the upper floor. Due to a very interesting ecosystem around the lake there are mosquitos but we saw turtles regularly.
Wed welcome to have an internet connection in the house and we missed a microwave. Thats probably all the mistakes...
Limni Keriou is a small silent village with several great tavernas, warm people and a beach with trees that provide pleasing shade during most of the day. The beach is semi sand with pebbles and with very shallow sandy access to the crystal clear waters - pleasure for kids. Local shopping and picking fresh lemons and oranges right from the trees is a priceless experience too.
Were definitely coming back.
