Villa Yerakina: The perfect setting for your Greek island holiday

The modern spacious villa sleeps 10

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.

The Peligoni Club - Extensive Sailing & Wind surfing facilities

The split level floors give all 5 bedrooms a magnificent sea view

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. All have basins and loos. Lower level: A further double studio bedroom with ensuite shower room, basin and loo. The utility room houses a washing machine & boiler. Separate pool room. The spacious terraced area includes a large swimming pool, covered lunching area, built-in barbeque and ping pong table and ample space for sun bathing or just relaxing in the shade of the main veranda.

Getting there

Direct flights from several UK airports are available from Easyjet, Thomas Cook, Thomson and Monarch. The earlier you book the cheaper the flights seem to be. Call me today on 0044(0)1962 861669 or email me at christina@christinameade.co.uk   to make your reservation. Car rental is available from many companies including several of the international car rental companies. You will need at least one car - the tranquillity of Villa Yerakina comes at the price of not being in a village or town!

The views from the villa are sensational

You can get to Zakynthos by ferry from the mainland port of Kyllini but most of our guests prefer to fly to Zakynthos with its new modern terminal and flights from many destinations. The drive to Yerakina from the airport takes about 45 minutes. Your route takes you through vineyards before rising into the hills and then back down to the coastal road as you head North towards Port St. Nicholas. We often stop for lunch at a taverna in Micro Nisi (literally Little Island). It's a charming little cove where the restaurant nestles into the hillside and where you can be served a delicious lunch and a glass of wine under the shade of the juniper trees before proceeding up the hill to the Villa, just 15 minutes away.
