The Ionian Islands region
Zante, also often known as Zakynthos, is the most southerly of the Ionian Islands and one of the most popular Greek islands. In the northwest you’ll experience its mountains and the traditional village life… in the centre of the island you’ll enjoy the scenery of a fertile plain, rich with olive groves and vineyards… in the southeast you’ll have the chance to relax in one of its beautiful beaches in the national marine park.
If you’re lucky you may have the chance to swim with a very common visitor in the summer months, the loggerhead turtle Caretta caretta, an endangered species only found in the Mediterranean Sea. They have chosen the sandy beaches of Zakynthos in the south to lay their eggs.
Sandy beaches, crystal clear waters, mountain villages, beautiful scenery, ancient treks, watersports, good quality restaurants, bars and night clubs… just a few examples of what you can experience in the island of Zakynthos.
The Zakynthos / Vassilikos area
Villa is set in large private grounds of 55,000 m2, in a forest location, within the borders of the National Marine Park of Zakynthos, enjoying great sea views. It is run by an agricultural family, providing you the chance to enjoy many organic homemade products such as honey, wine, fresh fruit and vegetables. It is a dream, unspoilt place ideal for couples and families.
We have other houses offering accommodation for between 2 and 6 guests. They all benefit from a spacious private balcony with table and chairs to enable relaxation overlooking the surrounding forest and the sea. Vassilikos is an area on the South of the island which starts from Argasi and ends in Porto Roma and is characterised by lush vegetation and a series of sandy beaches; including Dafni, Sekania, Porto Zoro, Banana and St. Nikolas, an ideal place for watersports fans.Lithies houses are in the centre of Vassilikos, which boasts the best beaches on the island, such as Gerakas and Saint Nicholas. You will be spoilt for choice of which beach to visit!
We have a whole range of special activities on offer for our guests. You can watch how we make honey and if you are staying with us at the correct season you can also see how we produce our special olive oil and wine. Lithies is ideally placed for hiking and there is a range of pleasant walks in the stunning surroundings. We offer maps outlining our recommended walking routes. Our location is ideal for nature lovers and those seeking a relaxed pace of life.
St. Nikolas beach is walking distance from Lithies. Some of the beaches in Vassilikos are accessible by tracks so a car is often essential. These are amongst the quieter beaches on the island but well worth the off-road driving!
Driving around Vassilikos you’ll pass a number of relaxed and friend, densely populated villages. It’s an excellent choice for families and couples who want to stay away from touristic places. There are more than sufficient shops, bars and restaurants, many of them providing late-night entertainment.
Vassilikos is also a known reproduction site for the famous loggerhead turtle, Caretta caretta, which is under the supervision and protection of the National Marine Park of Zakynthos.
