Overview

Pool Modern Beach Nearby Ideal for Kids All Bedrooms En-Suite

You will wander into the garden of Villa Koukla and understand that this is a lovely, getaway from it all retreat. With warm ambience from the beautiful stone terrace that stretches the length of the villa and the ancient olive trees, coupled with the breathtaking, panoramic views over the mountains and down towards the Bay of Keri, you will find yourself instantly relaxing. Villa Koukla is elevated on the hillside at Porto Koukla, a 5 minute drive from the busy resort of Lagunas. You can walk to the local taverna in 10 minutes which serves traditional Greek cuisine and is popular with the locals. Otherwise the seafont bars and restaurants of Agios Sostis are close by, as is the quaint Limni Keri harbour.

Villa Koukla has 3 bedrooms so is ideal for a family of 6 or a group of friends. Much of your time is bound to be spent outside. The green bay of Laganas, the island of Marathonisi and the crystal blue waters are mesmerising. You will want to be lounging on the sun beds indulging in the magnificent views or swimming in the lovely pool. As the sun goes down, you will enjoy the sunsets and feast under the beautiful branches of an olive tree using the brick barbecue.

Villa Koukla is an effortless mix of traditional and contemporary design, finished to a delightful, comfortable standard. The open-plan living space retains traditional charm with arched stone walls and a feature fireplace. The well-equipped, galley-style kitchen is open to the living space. One of the double bedrooms is downstairs with great views and a very striking, spacious shower room.

Upstairs you will find the remaining 2, atmospheric, bright and generous-sized double bedrooms. They are tasteful and complete with ensuite shower rooms. Every room in this villa has huge windows to make the most of the incredible views of the lush landscape, dazzling sea and Marathonisi Island beyond. The stone walls everywhere create a warm, inviting ambience. You will feel very comfortable here.

Loading map

Porto Koukla is small and peaceful with a few mini-markets and a popular taverna. Just 350m from the villa is Kaminia Beach in a beautiful, quiet and privileged point. Agios Sostis is a charming, traditional Greek village close by, between Laganas and Keri. It is surrounded by beautiful countryside and was named after a 16th century church dedicated to Saint Sostis. The village has an attractive backdrop of the mountains with a delightful beach. Opposite lies the small island of Marathonisi, otherwise known as ‘Turtle Island’. There are some excellent bars and restaurants on the waterfront. You can hire a boat from Agios Sostis over to the island.

Limni Keri harbour is 10 minutes drive from the villa. Again it is an enchanting, small village which is on the side of Marathia Cape. It has a small pebble beach, shaded by lovely fragrant pines and local friendly taverns. Limni Keri is an ideal starting point to visit caves or the beaches of Marathia Cape. A few minutes away is the mountain village of Keri. The small streets are crammed with ancient houses. It feels like life has slowed down or stopped here.

In the other direction you will come to the very busy Lagunas resort with a thriving nightlife and great entertainment opportunities. The beach is protected due to the turtles nesting. It continues all the way along the coast to Kalamaki. Both of these resorts have many bars and restaurants although Kalamaki is more laid-back and more appealing to families. The fine, cashmere-soft sand is perfect, meeting warm, shallow water. There is a small waterpark in Kalamaki.
Vassilikos has 2 well-equipped beaches and every variety of watersports. The lush vegetation harmoniously combines with the sandy beaches to offer visitors excellent views. While it is a quiet resort, it does offer every convenience with many restaurants, bars and shops.

Alykes has a very authentic feel with intriguing salt flats, churches and a Byzantine art museum. You can rent bikes or even a horse and carriage! It is charming and lovely.

Villa Koukla enjoys a very spacious outdoor garden and terrace. It is very well suited to families with a beautiful pool. The villa is not too precious either but very comfortable for a family.

The quiet Kaminia Beach is just 350m from the villa and there are many more within 10 minutes drive or so. The fine, silvery sands and shallow, warm water of both Kalamaki and Laganas are perfect for family fun though you might need to warn little ones not to disturb the turtle nests. Both resorts have mini-golf courses and playgrounds. Caretta Fun Park, at the Caretta Beach Holiday Village Kalamaki, is open to all and has bouncy castles, a trampoline, go karts, water balls and many arcade coin games. There is also a pizzeria and a football field.

Zakynthos is a great place to hike, cycle or horse ride. There is plenty of opportunity to explore the natural beauty of the island. Horse riding with Nana’s Horse Riding Centre in Kalamaki is a great option where you can take a 1 or 2 hour tour in the mountains or on the  beach to Laganas. The Centre is a lovely, friendly family business named after the founder’s daughter. You can hire cycles from many places, including Cycling Center Zakynthos Polilatadiko in Zante Town. There are 85 cycle routes to explore on the island.

Zante Town’s tourist train is a great way of seeing the town as well as being fun for children. You can hire bikes, toy jeeps and motorcycles for children at  the busy Solomos Square . Just outside Zante Town you will find the Sarakinado Water Village. The ice cream parlours will be popular, as will the many different types of slides and tubes. There is also a lazy river, jacuzzi and various pools. There is a karting track next to the water village.

Tsilivi is another family friendly resort with it’s water park next to the Planos Bay Hotel. There is also a lovely beach, mini golf, a nautical museum and a pottery workshop.

Taking a glass bottom boat to spot Caretta turtles swimming around Marathonisi Island will be very popular. Alternatively you can hire your own small boat so that you visit the Keri Caves and secret beach on the rocky side of Turtle Island as well as seeing the turtles. Small boats can go inside the caves and though the arch next to the caves.
