Micheal, August 2017

"We have just returned from your glorious home.  It was terrific in every way and we would very much like to return next year. You have decorated it with not a little style and we loved the different terraces and eating areas. The pool is enchanting and much used as it was rather hot last week.

The men in the party ran to the port every morning, swam and had coffee and then shopped and walked back. Very energetic!  We thought the shops in the port first rate and bought almost all of our provisions there.

Thank you for making our week in your beautiful island and villa so memorable." Anonymous, August 2016

"We had the most wonderful week in Villa Zaharoula last week - what a very special place it is. It is so well laid out and so spacious, we didn’t get on top of each other and had so many different places to sit. The pool was wonderful.


The villa, location and weather were all perfect and Matina so kind, helpful and charming.

The dishwasher was a bit of a trial. I completely cleaned it out on our second day but still, despite putting in salt and rinse aid (both of which were completely empty), and almost washing every plate, cup and bit of cutlery, it struggled to clean everything well. We ate in every other night and most lunches and so we did need a good dishwasher. This is by no means a complaint - just a passing comment!

We shopped every day in Agios Nicholas and found everyone there very accommodating, especially Dimitri, whose family appear to own or run almost everything in the port!

What a great holiday!" Easdale family, July 2016

"We have stayed in the villa for 7 nights and all 6 families were very happy to be in the villa as it is very comfortable and suitable even for 12 people. The villa is cosy with full equipment and nice garden and several places for relax near to the swiming pool. Strong WF. There is interesting library. Near to the villa you can find a nice beach with sand and 2 monasteries. Don't forget to visit the place from where you can see even the bay of the shipwreak from the top, it is very close to the villa towards the direction village Elias. The house manager was very helpful and service of the villa perfect. I strongly recommend the villa and I could say the we made a great choice and were very glad to be guest of the villa."  Georgian B, Bulgaria, September 2015


"When you first pull up to Zaharoula it takes your breath away. Amazing villa with typical greek charm at every turn. All bedrooms are beautifully decorated with ensuite. My only complaint would be the mattresses are very hard! The villa is huge with plenty of space for a large group without getting under each others feet. Perfectly positioned on top of a hill gives perfect views of the ocean from every angle. Sunrise was a real treat! Kitchen is well equipped and there are heaps of outside seating areas which I tried to have a wine in each! So relaxing and peaceful, we had a wonderful time. Kate was very helpful and gave us bags of information to help us find supermarkets, restaurants etc... The port is at the bottom of the hill which unless you are fit and able you wouldn't want to walk back up, I did a few times but it was a struggle for my mum and dad who only did it once! There are a couple of restaurants that are close to walk to. Needless to say we will be spending out next family reunion here, why go anywhere else?" The Barnhill family, 26th June - 3rd July 2015
