What an amazing place ! Quiet, peaceful and serene …..a real escape from it all! We had an amazing holiday at archkonito villas this August 2015 for 2 weeks. Pavlos and his family were very welcoming and friendly and couldn’t do enough for you, there was a real family atmosphere to the place and Mary at the café was a joy ! The pool was lovely , very clean with very well kept gardens and the olive groves are lovely. The villa accommodation was private and very clean. Someone came every day to clean and would sweep, re-make beds and empty the toilet & kitchen bins. There was also about 2/3 bed linen and towel changes in the 2 weeks as well.
There is a nice sitting area at the front of each villa, (where you could access free wi-fi) and the only point to note is if staying with children the villa was effectively only one room as the other beds were made up from the sitting furniture in the front room. The air-con unit was brilliant & worked very well and the beds with the nets were very effective against any mosquito bites. The temperatures were in the high 30’s each day so the air-con was a welcome relief. The villas were situated very close to a small supermarket and there was another larger one just 750m away.The steep path to Alykes town is about a 10-15 minute walk on a road and would be difficult to do for those not used to walking or who have problems with mobility, but the accommodation can be easily reached by car and you can take cars into the town each day. There was a place to hire vehicles in Alykes and this was easy to do. At night I would recommend taking a torch when using the road as the street lights weren’t always working.
The beach at Alykes is lovely, clear warm water and very sandy with quite a few sand bars so the water levels are shallow enough for small children to play. All the cafes and restaurants around the beach are excellent , offering good menu choices for food and drinks , the Palm Beach and the Astoria were both very good and it cost 6 euros to hire 2 sunbeds and a brolly for the whole day, with some areas offering free wi-fi too.
We took a taxi from Zante airport and that was 28 euros and we contacted the company “radio taxis” before on-line to book this and they were there to meet us off the plane so it could not have been easier ! All in all its been a fantastic holiday, very relaxing and restful and we must say a huge thank you to Pavlos , Mary and Dimitri , (who ran the bar) and stayed open as late as you needed him too!!
We will definitely be back to stay again another time. Hope you enjoy it as much as we did.”
Thanks Ivan for your nice words, we will be happy to see you and your lovely family again.

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.
