Villa | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
This lovely stone built villa is one of a five set in amongst a number of pine trees, hence the name and is located on the edge of the historical village of Aghios Leon in the west coast of the island. If peace and tranquility are what you are looking for then Villa Pine Valley would be the perfect choice.
The villa itself is built over two floors, the mainly open plan ground floor comprising of a fully fitted modern kitchen with all modern appliances, a dining area with a large table and chairs and a lounge area with comfortable sofas and a satellite TV. Also on this level is a twin bedroom and a separate bathroom with bath and shower over.
On the first floor are two further bedrooms, a twin and a double and a separate bathroom with bath and shower over. Views from the balconies are stunning, with the sun setting down into the sea a highlight of any evening.
The garden area is stone paved with the private swimming pool in the middle. A dining table and chairs, sunbeds and umbrellas complete the area.
The area surrounding the villas and the local village is perfect for walking with many footpaths. Aghios Leon has been virtually untouched by tourism and remains very quaint and typically Greek with stone built cottages and traditional village tavernas.
Further afield and only a short drive away is the beautiful Porto Limnionas, where you can dive off swimming platforms into the crystal clear waters of the lagoon. Snorkelling is excellent here and there are also a number of caves you can explore. A taverna overlooking the lagoon has many Greek delicacies for you to try. And Porto Vromi, where you can join one of the boat trips that leave to explore the famous Shipwreck Cove, Navagio, is only a 15 minute drive away.

Holiday Villas in Zante
Zante is an island with something for everybody. Depending on where you are, you'll discover an island with bustling night life, quiet and relaxed beaches, great sight seeing opportunities and traditional, local celebrations, food and restaurants. There's loads to do on this one island.
The landscape is as varied as the activities too, with beaches and resorts along the south and east coasts, whilst the north and west are mountainous, ending in cliffs that can drop hundreds of feet into the sea. Regardless of which part of the island you want to see, our villas in Zante will allow you to do so.
If you want to explore Zante's towns, then the Southern and Eastern portions of the island are where you'll want to head. Zakynthos Town is the island's capital and is where you'll find the main shopping district and the town's piazza. Despite being the capital, you won't find much nightlife here, and are better off heading to Laganas, which has plenty of nightclubs and bars. During the day, you'll also find restaurants along the beach front. If you're after a quieter, more family friendly resort, then we have a selection of our villas in Zante that place you in the town of Tsilivi, which has fewer nightclubs, more restaurants and markets and a beachfront with plenty of watersports available.
Those interested in the history of the island won't be disappointed either. It was mentioned in Homer's Iliad and Odyssey, and was conquered by the kingdom of Kefalonia over a number of years. Its more recent history is much more detail though, as the island was hit by two major earthquakes in 1953 that levelled most of the buildings there. The capital only had three buildings left standing. Since then, Zante has had strict building regulations in place and has survived repeated tectonic rumbles.
For sightseers staying in our villas in Zante, the island has a lot to offer. The most famous spot is the shipwrecked smuggler ship, which washed ashore in 1981. It has become a postcard favourite, as the ship, with its tall masts and perfect settling, looks like something straight out of a film set or painting. The small cove in which it has come to rest is one of Zante's most beautiful, and trips to head out and see the boat set out every day.
The Blue Caves are another favourite with holiday makers. There are a number of them around the coast, created by the sea eating into the cliffs and creating deep pools of azure blue water. They look spectacular during sunrise, and boats are available for a trip there all day every day. However, the best option is to rent your own boat and make the trip yourself. You can look around at your leisure and see what happens to the water as the light changes. Afterwards, instead of being taken straight back to the shore, you can take a tour of the coast and admire the coves and cliffs that appear on Zante's postcards.
With summer temperatures hitting an average of 30°C, Zante's beaches are very popular with holiday makers. Luckily, they're big enough to easily cope, and it's possible to find somewhere to yourself at any time of the year. Along with long stretches of sand, plenty of beachside restaurants and bars, and great sunbed facilities, watersports, including some great snorkelling opportunities, are available at many of Zante's beaches.
The pride of Zante is definitely its coastline, and our villas in Zante are perfectly positioned for you to get the most enjoyment possible out of it.
