BFB's Overview

Villa Taygeta is the prescription pad for stressed out, style-conscious parents in search of an indulgent, child-friendly retreat. More akin to your very own boutique hotel than self-catering rental, the villa comes with an array of optional extras all designed to ensure a really relaxing, family break.

Designed in traditional Cycladic style, this ‘sugar cube’ villa is sure to impress. Outside the property is set in landscaped gardens with one of the coolest pool set ups we’ve seen…. Teak mattress topped sunbeds ‘float’ within the sea-facing infinity pool whilst the bubbling jacuzzi offers the perfect spot for an evening tipple PTBD (post toddler bedtime). Yogi’s have a custom-built deck for their sun salutations (private lessons can be arranged on request) and there’s plenty of space for lazy outdoor dining and afternoon naps (we recommend nabbing the hammock). Inside the villa’s a lesson in bohemian luxury. Pared back interiors with a chic, island inspired colour palette create a light and welcoming space whilst the thoughtful supply of baby gear and toddler-friendly extras ensure families feel right at home.

A solid ten the villa doesn't disappoint on location either. Looking out over the Ionian ocean with views stretching as far as Kefalonia, the villa feels perfectly private yet but is wonderfully accessible with the small but bustling port of Agios Nikolaos set just a short walk away which offers a fine selection of local tavernas, restaurants and shops. Plus, during low season guests have the opportunity to make use of the facilities at the ever popular Peligoni Club which is almost on the doorstep ( guests passes are available on request depending on the season).

All in all Villa Taygeta is ideal for parents looking to take the stress out of self catering and unwind in their very own slice of holiday heaven.

Accommodation Overview;

The air-conditioned Villa Taygeta is perfect for larger or multi family groups with 5 en-suite bedrooms many of which have their own private terraces. The luxury top floor master suite offers a spacious double room with en-suite shower room (rain shower). This room benefits from its very sundeck which offers stunning ocean views. There’s a second bedroom on this floor; a twin room with en-suite bathroom and private covered balcony. Downstairs the entrance level has a further master bedroom with double bed, en-suite shower room and private courtyard and a twin bedroom with shower room. The lower ground floor offers a further twin room with an en-suite shower room and private sea view terrace.

The communal living space is open plan with an impressive and well-equipped kitchen (dishwasher, fridge freezer, microwave, electric oven, hob, coffee machine), comfortable lounge area and dining space. There’s a handy laundry room and downstairs cloakroom.

Active guests have use of an in-house gym complete with weights, cross trainer and suspension training equipment plus there’s a boules court and elegant yoga deck.

Little ones are well catered for as on top of the in-house baby/toddler gear there’s a thoughtfully equipped playroom which is a great space for little ones looking to escape the midday sun.

As mentioned the outdoor space is the villas real crowning glory. From the impressive infinity pool, sprawling terraces, summer kitchen, covered dining area, indulgent jacuzzi and fragrant planters it’s bound to prove hard a very hard place to leave!

Please note: The villa has a full time, on call manager and includes 3 times weekly maid service and twice weekly linen, towel and bedding change for off season booking whilst peak season stays include daily cleaning and regular change of linens and towels. An ironing service can be arranged on request at extra charge.

Location Information

Villa Taygeta has a prime location within an area of outstanding natural beauty, with views of the Ionian Sea, in the north eastern corner of Zakynthos (also known as Zante). Although the stretches of sandy beaches have made the island a popular package holiday destination, this unspoilt corner is a world away from the busiest resorts and families will find private coves to swim in the crystal clear sea, just a few minutes from the Villa.

Agios Nikolaos is a bustling little port with a smattering of tavernas, restaurants and shops set a short walk away. The port is a stopping off point for boat trips to the ‘Blue caves of Zante’ and a ferry also sails to Kefalonia, (approx. 1 hr), made famous by the novel and movie, Captain Corelli’s Mandolin. The owner can help arrange private trips or boat hire should guests wish to see the infamously beautiful 'Shipwreck Cove' or Blue Caves in luxury.

For families staying at Villa Taygeta, they may be able to take advantage of the excellent Peligoni Club which is walking distance away and occasionally offers temporary membership (costs apply - usually only possible in low/mid season).The club is open May - September and has a creche, selection of children's activities, watersports, bars, a restaurant and more.

For a change of scene from the villa, a visit to Volimes reveals the traditional side to Zakynthos, in a string on three small hamlets up in the hills. It’s a popular day out for coach trips so best to visit in the morning to buy the local cheese, yummy honey and embroidery souvenirs. For a more full on day of family fun, the Water Village Waterpark (35 mins) is one of the biggest in Greece, with slides, flumes, pools and play areas for all ages.

Nearest medical services: GP/A&E, 10-15 mins.

Getting here: The international airport for Zakynthos (or Zante) is just under an hour’s drive from Villa Taygeta, with airlines including Easyjet, British Airways Thomson and Jet2 flying from regional airports in the UK.
