Overview

Pool Villa/House Modern Self-Catered Ideal for Kids Walk to Beach Walk to Village Parking Space

With masses of Cycladic spirit and Mykonian charm, the wonderful Villa Zania enjoys a fabulous position overlooking the beach of Agios Ioannis. It will take you just ten minutes to walk to this popular beach and the village amenities. Villa Zania is ideal for families or friends wanting to explore this picturesque island. It boasts five bedrooms sleeping eight guests and traditional living spaces with endless white curved walls, built-in furniture and even curved baths. It enjoys a warm and welcoming ambience and a comfortable stay. 

Agios Ioannis Diakoftis is a wonderful location, just minutes from the beating heart of this ever popular island and the superb beaches of Ornos and Psarrou. It was named after a small chapel standing above the village and is famous for being the filming location of the award-winning film ‘Shirley Valentine’ in 1989 before Mykonos became the hot spot destination it is today. Very close to the villa, the sheltered Ornos Beach is one of the island’s trendiest beaches with crystal clear water, plenty of watersports, loungers, umbrellas, beach bars and restaurants. There is a daily boat service to other beaches on the island including Psarou, Elia, Agari and Super Paradise as well as buses that go to Mykonos Town. It is very easy to get about and explore Mykonos from Villa Zanetti. 

Enjoying its wonderful homely feel, Villa Zanetti boasts gorgeous wooden beamed ceilings throughout which add lots of character. The living spaces are open plan in design with large arches between the different spaces. The modern kitchen enjoys a good array of appliances and an attractive, very chunky wooden breakfast table and chairs. This leads through to a charming living room with a built-in fireplace, all in white of course, a modular comfy sofa and trendy floor cushions. A television is provided for your entertainment. Doors open to the terrace for alfresco dining and stairs lead to the upper floor. 

Villa Zania enjoys five bedrooms. Like the living spaces, they are all very charming with traditional Cycladic features. Three of the bedrooms enjoy double beds and the other two offer single beds. Some of the beds have rattan bases which look lovely against the wooden ceilings and wooden vintage furnishings. Some of the rooms also offer terrace access where you can admire the wonderful sea views and listen to the soothing sounds of the sea. The bathrooms are fabulous, all with built-in showers and baths and all in white. There are lots of lovely accessories with a seaside theme making the villa a very joyful place. 

Guests staying at Villa Zania enjoy its wonderful terrace. You leave the living space of the villa for a covered alfresco lounge and dining area with more rattan furniture and a built-in stone barbecue. It is a delightful area with gorgeous views of the pool and the town down to the sea. Beyond this is a sun-drenched terrace with a bench covered with colourful scatter cushions. On a slightly lower level, you will spend hours in the villa’s wonderful swimming pool. It is surrounded by loungers and a choice of shaded or sun-drenched seating areas. These are the perfect spots to enjoy delicious cocktails and splendid sea views.

Villa Zania enjoys a wonderful location looking down to Agios Ioannis Diakoftis and its fabulous beach. You can be sunning yourselves on loungers in ten minutes or plunging into the inviting calm sea. Agios Ioannis Diakoftis was where ‘Shirley Valentine’ was filmed all those years ago. It is one of the quieter beaches but very close to the lively capital and the trendy Ornos Beach. 

Sitting in the southwestern corner of this lovely island, Ornos Beach is the closest beach to the capital so is very popular with lots of local buses coming in. You can walk to the beach from Villa Zania. Ornos Beach has a diving school as well as waterskiing and windsurfing instruction. There are plenty of beach bars and fantastic restaurants. It can get very busy so you can also walk to the quieter Kapari Beach if you want a change from Agios Iannis Diakoftis. Other popular beaches on the island include Kalo Livadi which is set in a valley sprinkled with sugar cubed homes, Elia, Psarou, Paraga, Paradise, Kalafatis and Plati Gialos. Elia Beach, on the south coast of the island, boasts Mykonos’ longest sweep of sand. The rainbow flag at the end of the beach marks its LGBT stretch of sand. Paradise Beach and Super Paradise Beaches, also on the south coast, are the home of some of the island’s most famous nightclubs so you may want to head there one afternoon.

Mykonos is glamorous and trendy. It is brimming with gorgeous white sandy beaches, the most offering buzzy beach bars and watersports, a long list of nightclubs, a wonderful array of fine dining restaurants, vibrant cocktail bars, classy boutiques and charming whitewashed villages. It is little wonder that Mykonos is a celebrity hot spot. 

The lovely village of Ano Mera in the centre of the island should definitely be on your ‘to do’ list. Ano Mero is one of the most picturesque villages on the island, boasting classical Cycladic beauty, quaint narrow streets, traditional tavernas, unique shops and its famous monastery of Panagia Tourliani. The monastery was built in the 15th century and is one of the main attractions of the whole island. Ano Mera’s main square is pedestrianised and surrounded by charming cafes and tavernas that are renowned for their excellent Mykonian meats cooked on the spit and barbecue. You will also discover the ‘Kopanisti’ workshop where the local delicious spicy cheese is made. 

Mykonos Town, the island’s capital, boasts an enchanting warren of cobblestone, and narrow lanes draped in vibrant bougainvillea. Sprinkled with picturesque churches, quirky art galleries, chic boutiques, jewellery shops and charming restaurants, visitors love their visits to the capital. The town’s museums, the Archaeological Museum and the Aegean Maritime Museum are worth a stop. The ethereal beauty of Little Venice is a favourite haunt of highly acclaimed artists and Instagram followers. It is one of the most romantic places on the island with elegant old houses sitting on the edge of the sea creating a magical aura and an abundance of buzzy bars.
If you head north of Mykonos Town you will get to Tourlos on the north side of the island. It has a magnificent port where many cruise ships stop and a smart harbour. The houses are freshly painted with colourful shutters and draped in colourful bougainvillea and other pretty flowers. Many celebrities have chosen to build luxury villas here. The Chapel of St George Spilianos, north of the harbour, is delightful. It is built into the cavity of a rock with a lovely ambience and where you can light a candle. Tourlos also boasts a fabulous, organised beach where you can try your hand at a variety of watersports.

Villa Zania is ideal for a family holiday. It is very comfortable and will immediately make you feel at home. The terrace is gorgeous and enjoys lots of seating and alfresco dining spaces and a beautiful pool, as well as those very special views!

There are so many wonderful beaches on the island to explore. Ornos is beautiful and one of the favourites. It is perfect for windsurfing and lots of other watersports. Kalo Livadi Beach offers shimmering, crystal-clear water and an amazing view of the Aegean archipelago. Agrari Beach is ideal for children who enjoy the small playground as well as the crystal clear water. Other family-friendly, popular beaches are Kalafatis and Platys Gialos.

Mykonos Town is lovely and you should not miss it. The Folklore Museum shows you how people used to live, work and dress in the 19th century in Mykonos. The Archaeological Museum has a fascinating collection of jewellery, figurines, statues and pottery and the Aegean Maritime Museum is home to many ancient nautical instruments and vessels. Children love buying a few souvenirs from the shops. Mykonos Town has the densest concentration of dining options with anything from upmarket fusion to authentic Italian pasta, a favourite with children to traditional Greek tavernas and ice cream parlours. 

There are many boat trips from the harbours and water taxis. You can take water taxis from the beaches or take a boat trip from Mykonos Town’s harbour to explore the coastline or snorkel. The sacred island of Delos is high on the list for day trips for families. Delos is the birthplace of the mythological twins of Zeus and Leto, Apollo and Artemis. Another possibility is to take a family cooking lesson creating some traditional Greek dishes. With the local chef, your children will leave more about life on Mykonos, its history, its people and its delicious fresh food. 

The windmills of Mykonos are positioned in the western part of the island serving as a remembrance of the island’s wheat and bread industry. They are a great place for photographs and are especially popular at sunset.
