Description from owner

Villa Jasmine is one of 4 villas generously spaced around a large swimming pool surrounded by beautiful gardens, enjoying a superb location in the traditional coastal village of Kypseli. The gentle pace of village life here lends itself perfectly to simple, relaxed tourism, but it's central situation along the east coast gives Kypseli the advantage of being an ideal base from which to explore the entire island too.

If you ever get tired of relaxing by the pool, the local beach with it's clean and clear sea....safe for swimming and perfect for snorkelling.... is a short stroll away down a quiet, narrow country road. Two of the best fish tavernas on the island are to be found along the shoreline here, and the village also boasts another two restaurants, a beach-side garden bar and also two grill houses......and all are within easy walking distance of the villa. But as well as a fully fitted and equipped kitchen, Villa Jasmine has it's own stone-built barbeque, so you can enjoy al fresco

The well-stocked village supermarket is only 300 metres away, plus the local butcher and the wood-fired bakery,with it's delicious selection of hand-made breads and pastries, are each only 400 metres away.Nightlife in Kypseli is traditional and simple, informal & impromptu. If you do happen to fancy a night of something more cosmopolitan though, the established and busy resorts of Tsilivi and Alykes are to be found at just 4kms. and 7kms. away respectively.

Villa Jasmine has one double bedroom upstairs and one twin bedroom downstairs, each with it's own bathroom, making it an ideal choice for couples or families alike.

The Ionian Islands region

Zakynthos is the southernmost of the seven islands that make up the chain known as the "Ionian Islands". It enjoys the most hours of sunshine per year of any of the Greek islands, and enjoys a sheltered climate thanks to the protection offered by the imposing Mount Ainos over on neighbouring Kefalonia. Spring is truly beautiful, with the entire countryside covered in wild flowers.

The soil on Zakynthos is rich and fertile, supporting a thriving and diverse agricultural industry. Everywhere you go there are well tended olive groves, and the entire island makes superb olive oil. Kypseli is well known for it's citrus fruits, melons and vegetables, whilst the north of the island has wonderful wild herbs and grazing for sheep, making it the place to go for local honey and cheeses. The south has pasture lands for pigs, so pork is their speciality , and the central plain that runs through the island is perfect vine-growing country, so wine is their main product.

The island is relatively small and easy to travel around, but the bus services are sporadic and unreliable (to say the least!). Taxis are usually plentiful and have set fares for all destinations. Although a hire-car is not strictly necessary for a holiday in Kypseli, I would recommend it... even if only for a couple of days... to have the independance and opportunity of exploring more of this stunningly beautiful island.

Kypseli

No trip to Zakynthos would be complete without a visit to the famous Blue Caves and the Shipwreck. One of the best ways to do this is by speedboat, which leaves from the nearby harbour of Tsilivi in the morning and gets you back by early afternoon. Alternatively you can drive to either Porto Vromi or Skinari and hire one of the small boats that are there waiting to take you, which makes a great day out too.

Another must is a trip out to see the turtles as they lounge in the bay waiting for nightfall to come onshore and lay their eggs. The turtles and their nesting grounds are very strictly protected, and the programme takes great care to ensure that these magnificent creatures are safeguarded to ensure their continued survival. Approved turtle-spotting trips are available daily from the beach at Laganas.

Anyone lucky enough to be in Kypseli on July 26th will experience the warmth, energy and friendliness of the locals as they invite you to join in their "panayiri"....a local celebration for the saint of our church here, which culminates in an evening of dancing, drinking and general merry-making not just for the villagers, but for visitors alike. Great fun!

The main religious festival of the island takes place in August to celebrate the island's patron saint...St. Dionysis. It is held in Zakynthos Town (12kms.), and is in the evening of August 24th, but is preceeded by a week of festivities including a huge travelling market, road-side stalls, a funfair and other celebrations. Not to be missed if you're here on this date!

Kypseli beach is undeveloped and unspoilt, just perfect for swimming and snorkelling. However,nearby Tsilivi (4 kms.) offers a large range of watersports on the beach, and also has a good water park. Alykes (7 kms.) has watersports to offer as well, and it's also possible to hire small boats from the beach here too ( passport required).

Not surprisingly, there are no A.T. M machines in Kypseli, but Tsilivi has plenty. The major banks are all in Zakynthos Town.

Hopefully you won't be needing them on your holiday, but the nearest pharmacy and doctor's surgery are 4kms. away in Tsilivi, and the island's hospital is in the town, 12 kms. away.

“Fantastic villa on a lovely small complex of just 4 surrounding a beautiful pool.”

Reviewed 14 Oct 2012

The service we received from the owner Diana was second to none from the very first email and this continued even after we'd arrive home - we'd left something behind which she very kindly posted back to us. She was there to greet us when we arrived and made us feel most welcome by showing us around the villa and explaining where the local supermarkets and restaurants were. The villa itself was very well equipped and spotlessly clean thanks to the attentive maid Olympia. We spent most evenings eating on the terrace with a lovely view over the swimming pool and breathing in the heady fragrance of the jasmine. Most days it seemed as though we had our own private pool as we were the only ones using it - and it too was kept immaculately clean. There are some very nice restaurants nearby including one of Zante's 2 best fish restaurants which is only 10 minutes walk from the villa. The welcome we received from Diana was mirrored when we went to eat at the restaurant she and Lakis own - the Olive Tree in nearby Tsilivi where we had a lovely meal. Overall a thoroughly enjoyable and relaxing holiday.
