Built in 1846, Archontiko once traded as a an olive oil factory, flower mill and winery. Archontiko was lovingly restored and converted into traditional Greek masionettes with emphasis on it’s heritage. Later six self sufficient Villas were built on the grounds and it became Archontiko Village. We are located in the beautiful surroundings of Hartata, Katastari and overlooking the beautiful clear waters of Alykes beach and bay. Archontiko Village is steeped in history and have been kept in the same family since it was built in 1846. It is family owned and run which lends itself to the ambience and beauty of Archontiko Village. Quoted as being " A hidden gem and a place not to be missed ".
Archontiko Villas is situated in a beautiful rural location. Set in amongst olive groves and the hillside of the breathtaking rock of Mellisa. It has breathtaking panaramic views of the bay of Alykes, Kafelonia and mainland Greece. A short stroll will bring you either by road or through our park to Alykes, which is the main tourist resort in the area.Located around the land you will find many ancient artifacts, which are dating back to 1846 when it originally traded as an olive oil factory and flour mill. The original mill, olive press and wine press is still on show along with the old waterwells and many pots and stones from that era.

We had a nice stay at the Archontiko Villas. The host Sharon welcomed us and introduced us to our sweet villa. The contact before our arrival was already very friendly and uncomplicated. For questions and recommendations we could anytime ask her or go to the pool bar where always was someone. We didn't need any assistance so we had very few contact with them. But it was nice to know someone would be there to help. The villa was clean, we had a nice seaview from our terrace and also the location of the pool and the seaview from there was beautiful. As the villas are located in Katastari a bit outside the touristy area around Alykes, it was nice to have a car, which we did. But it's good to have a mean of transport anyway, so you can do trips around the island, which we really enjoyed.
Our stay at the house of Sharon was really nice and special. The hole ground is really nice, with the pool, the little bar - where you get some food and cold drinks the hole day - and the olives trees. Everything is clean and tidy and you can have a perfect relaxed holiday. Everybody from her family is very welcoming and is always there for help. They told us the best places to go and helped us with any questions.
The house where we stayed was perfect to stay for a week, with the little terrace and this beautiful view down to alykes and the sea. Just opposite of the street is a little supermarket, where you get basic things as water, but anyhow we would recommend a car, to get to visit all the places of the island.
Relaxing, nice villa, perfect location for visiting Zante. Sharon husband provided us with good tips for visiting the island. Alykes is just at 10 minutes walk (on a steep path)
We were made to feel very very welcome by Sharon and her family. We had a lovely few days staying here and fun exploring this beautiful part of the island. My husband and I and teenage children really enjoyed the pool and poolside relaxation. We also enjoyed some fantatstic food and hospitality in the poolside taverna (excellent value for money).
Thank you for having us
We had a lovely stay. Great location, close to the beach by car or foot. The kids absolutely loved the pool. Very hospitable and friendly hosts, thanks so much! Loved the fresh from the garden salads and homemade tzatziki!
Es ist wirklich ein wunderschöner Platz zum Ausspannen. Wir haben die Ruhe ,die Aussicht und Gastfreundschaft sehr genossen!
We spent 8 days of our holidays in these wonderfull villas. They are peacefull and the perfect place to relax and feel comfortable after visiting those amazing spots of Zakynthos. Don't expect the bottle of Champagne in the photo, but instead the best hosts ever. Sharon and her greek family will help in anything you need and give you great tips to enjoy your vacation.
We are happy to host you in the island of Zakynthos, we are always available if you would like to ask further question about your stay here.
