As the inspirers, creators and hosts of Vis di Vardi Luxury Estate, we wanted to create a unique architectural space, based on the Greek element, combining luxury with elegance, the imposing space with the tranquility of nature.
The result has justified us. We managed to create a unique space for unique visitors. Vis di Vardi Luxury Estate is characterized not only by its magnificent interior, but also by its meticulously thought-out exterior.
More specifically, the interior part includes three comfortable bedrooms, a kitchen, a living room, a dining room and a large bathroom. All the interiors are fully equipped. The villa also has two large balconies. Moving to the exterior part, you will find a space designed with attention to detail and privacy.
The outdoor area includes a beautiful courtyard, fully equipped with seating, chairs, an oversized modern swimming pool with hot tub, sun loungers, umbrellas, tables, showers and a barbecue area with a monastic style dining area. The jewel of the outdoor area is the individually constructed bar.
Finally, a great advantage of Vis di Vardi Luxury Estate is its location. Our premises are located very close to Zakynthos town, just 1.5 km away, very close to well-known and beautiful beaches such as Kalamaki and Argassi, very close to the port and the airport of Zakynthos (only five minutes away) and is characterized as a location ideal for walking and exercising in nature.
The Pearl of the Ionian Sea
Zakynthos is located at the base of the hill of Bochali and it is at the same time chief town and main port of the island.
After the earthquake that in 1953 destroyed the city the reconstruction works began and now it looks like a modern city to the tourist, a city that is expanding toward the inland because of the many activities that are there developing.
Zakynthos offers many interesting things to the visitor such as the famous Zante church of San Dionisio, that keeps the relics of the saint, the numerous museums and the characteristic squares of D. Solomos and Saint Mark; this one dated back to the Venetian period and with the only one catholic church of the island.
Besides the seafront (marine road) and the small internal streets of the city there is a very interesting borough around the ruins of the ancient Venetian castle located at the top of the hill of Strani at the back of the city.
Here the tiny and silent alleys, the old houses with the courtyard with flowers and the enchanting landscape dominating the bay of the city of Zakynthos will make your holiday unique and unforgettable
A Little Cove with a Pristine Beach
The most beautiful beach of Zakynthos and one of the five or six most photographed beaches of all Greece.
Accessible only by sea, it gives you the idea of hugeness and perfection.
It consists of millions of small pebbles with the blue shades of the sea as far as the eye can see, it results unique in its gender and the relict looks like if it was made by an artist. Arriving by caique, the tall lateral walls hide the island till the last minute when out of the blue you get a complete view of the bay.
Waters around Navagio often have electric light blue colour because of the numerous sulphurous caves around the beach and when the sea is rising a large quantity of sulphur radiates, giving the possibility of taking beautiful pictures.
To visit the beach, a part from the numerous tours of the island, it is possible, from the close bay of Porto Vromi or from Aghios Nikolaos, to get the daily taxi-boat offered by the local boats.
We suggest visiting Navagio in the morning since in the afternoon the sea tends to become bigger and may cause problems to get back.You can not leave the island without having seen this beach from the panoramic view at the top of the promontory facing the beach itself.
Half way between the villages of Volimes and Anafonitria there is an asphalt road leading to a huge car-park; getting down a few steps you reach a balcony from where you can admire the beach.
A Unique Adventure
The Blue Caves are one of the most popular and advertised attractions of the island; you can visit them with your own boat or with one of the many organized tours.
The Blue Caves consist of particular geologic formations giving life to a succession of caves along the North-West coast of the island; they start soon after Agios Nikolaos to end near Skinari Cape. Their name is due to the particular reflections of the water in the caves and you can visit many of them with a small- medium boat whereas the others are to be visited only by expert swimmers and divers.
Between Agios Nikolaos and Skinari Cape it is possible to reach by car a small mill and from there coming down a hundred steps, to reach the piece of coast where the caves are.
At the bottom of the steps there are some polish rocks, not very comfortable to lie down to sunbathe, that are a good base to start visiting the caves by swimming and to dive.
The boat tours to visit the Blue Caves start from Makris Gialos beach, Agios Nikolaos port and Cape Skinari.
Explore the Turtles’ Bay Island
Marathonissi is a small private island in the turtles’ bay close to Limni Kerì’s beach.
Until the second world war the island was lived, today it has neither inhabitants nor buildings.
It is now one of the areas where the CARETTA CARETTA turtles go to breed.
You can visit the island by private boat or by organized tourists’ visits by caique and for the stronger ones there is the possibility to go by canoes and maybe meeting the turtles.
Pay attention that as the island is inside the Marine Park the anchorages it is not legal.
There are two beautiful beaches: one of pebbles, reachable by swimming from a huge cave, the other one is a large sand area smoothly gliding towards the sea. For those who love the sun the sandy beach is the best whereas for those who love snorkeling the pebble one is perfect to visit the cave (on the right to the beach) and other smaller ones or partly submerged full of starfish and concretions.
The island offers no snack bars, electricity or anything that may disturb the turtles; taking this into consideration it is advisable to take food and beverage when going there.
For those coming with their own boat, we suggest visiting the Kerì Caves, a few minutes by boat from the island along Marathia’s Cape coast.
One more peculiar thing about the island: Zakynthos is famous for the turtles and also for the last specimen of Monacus Monacus seals that populate its shores.
One of those seals chose one of the small caves of Marathonissi as its “Summer residence”, we leave to the more adventurous ones the pleasure to discover it.
