Amazing tranquil villa. Would suit family or couple looking for peace and quiet
We have just returned from a lovely week in Zante at Spiti Martina. Want to cover a few points to note about the property before the good bit:
It is a two bedroom property with an open planned mezzanine above the living room. This would only be suitable for families as we took a friend who did not have any privacy apart from changing on the shared bathroom. Also not appropriate for older famiky members as mezzanine is up a steep set of stairs. Take lots of insect repellent, we did but were still eaten alive as property is rural. Ensure that you hire a good car and do not mind driving on coastal cliff roads as this is the only way in and out of the villa and can be a little worrying if you are not a confident driver at night. Make sure that you fill up with shopping on the way to the villa at one of the large supermarkets near Zante town as is much more reasonable and the villa has a fridge freezer. Please note it does not have an oven so cooking will be by hob or grill on the BBQ. The swimming pool is set up steep uneven stone steps and therefore can not be seen from the house not ideal for young children to be left unattended.
We had a wonderful time at the Villa, we went with my three children, husband and a family friend. The children loved the pool and I loved the sun terrace. Very private and all day long suntrap. The walled garden outside the villa gave us a lovely setting for al fresco dining or chilling with a coffee and a book in the shade. The villa was lovely and clean an rustic just what I needed. There is a small shop over the rd for basics and cafes in Volimes which is a 8 min drive into the hills. Go to Aghios Nikolaus only 8 mins downhill and catch boat trips or attend a Greek night on a Friday at the small seafront restuarant at the end of the bay. Be sure to go on Trainaki in Alykes leaves at 10.45 every day feom the Jammin bar is a lovely tour. If you are looking to be able to rest and enjoy self catering this holiday is for you , it is not within walking diatance of bars and tavernas so you will need to drive. The amenities were great and the staff (pool and cleaners) very helpful. Spiti Martini is a lovely place to be creative or just kick back and switch off. My children enjoyed not having Wifi and although their 4g worked they dis not use it instead we played Coita, Boule, Cards, Draughts , Backgammon and one night they put on an X factor type show on the natural stage in the garden. We will definitely return to the villa
Spiti Martini is a beautiful place that we would happily return to.
Spiti Martini is a beautiful place that we would happily return to. Unfortunately, because of unusually strong rainstorms that lasted for days, we we unable to take advantage of the garden and pool, which was a bit disappointing. But it was paradise before the storm arrived and we loved the house, its surroundings and the island.
Relaxing, tranquil, fab pool and fabulous area.
Ah, what a blessing to be returning to the peace & serenity of Spiti Martini! The Villa - with it's new updates & additions was perfect - the pool splendid & provided hours of fun for the boys (Action cam used a lot) and respite from the (wonderful!) heat for Tracy. Highlights: boat trip, Water Park and swimming in an azure sea - the colour of which soothes the soul. I never cease to feel awe at it's beauty. Fabulous meals @ El Sueno and Nicos by the Sea (reviewed on Trip Advisor). Breakfast croissants at La Grotta (St Nicholas) and delicious bread from Volimes bakery. Thank you Martin and Jane. Thank you George & Co for your care and consideration to detail.
Zakynthos we've fallen in love with you all over again.

Lovely property - peaceful setting, beautiful island. Pool was brilliant - kids loved it.
lovely part of the island, the views were spectacular. everyone was very friendly wherever we ate and all knew Martin as soon as we said where we were staying.
The villa was great for the pool and all the eating and sitting areas within the grounds. my niece loved the goats next door !!
Only downside were the roads ! quite frightening especially the speed of some local drivers !!
The restaurants nearby were great and food amazing - our favourites were micro nisi and nikos.
we hired a car through 'economy cars' who were most definitely not economy and not very helpful, the car was not great either !
overall a lovely holiday and did not want to come back
What a lovely positive review ! We are very pleased you enjoyed your stay and the peaceful , lovely villa , spacious garden , spectacular views and friendly welcome you all received. We will advise future guests not to use economy cars . On the plus side our pool and the next door goats added to your pleasure. Thank you Lesley for your comments. We are very pleased that you left wanting more .
Peaceful retreat with beautiful gardens
We stayed at Spiti Martini for a week at the end of August. The villa has a modern rustic feel, comfortable, clean and well cared for. The outside space is bigger than you expect, with lots of different sitting areas to relax in the shade or full sun. There are a number of steps up to the pool so this villa is not really ideal for toddlers or the elderly but our family are all adults now so we actually loved the seperate levels and spaces. It worked well for us. The owners, Martin and Jane were so well organised and helpful in the booking process and George, the local contact in charge of the villa, was also delightful. The north of Zante is a very unspoilt region with rocky coves and caves that you can swim or kayak into only a few minutes drive from the villa, along with good restaurants and the port of Saint Nicholas where there is a small supermarket. Spiti Martini makes an excellent base offering comfort, peace and privacy.
Jane and I were very pleased to read your review . It is important to get feedback from our guests. When we have guests who have found Spiti Martini so welcoming , it delights us...and you have enjoyed not only our house , swim pool and garden but discovered this beautiful unspoilt part of Zakynthos. Thank you for all your kind comments. They will be passed on to our staff. We hope you will return one day.
A fantastic summer break at SPITI MARTINI ON ZAKYNTHOS
We just wanted to let you know what a fantastic holiday we had recently at your villa on the island of Zakynthos.
Thank you for making it a very special holiday for us as a family. Our youngest daughter had just completed her GCSEs and older daughter had just done end of first year university exams (biochem), and as a family we were all ready for a relaxing break. We certainly got that at Spiti Martini. The location is exceptional with its extensive, beautifully planted gardens, and the pool was a dream !! The villa itself was spacious and clean, with everything we needed for a comfortable stay. We do hope to return in the near future and would also like to extend our thanks to your local staff, who were so helpful and friendly. Thank you !
Thank you Beswick family for your kind words . We are of course delighted you had a good holiday in our Greek house and we pass on your comments to our local staff .very best wishes to you . Martin and Jane.
