The owner Marie is fab, nothing is too much trouble and she even brought us a coffee at breakfast! No charges for extras and the most stunning pool view ever.
Room is basic, but had everything we need, just what we expected.
It was the perfect 30th birthday present for my wife.
One tip, try and arrive during daylight: you will find it 10 times easier.
Thanks Marie, thanks Zakynthos!
Swimming pool at your doorstep with a great view, nice friendly owner and an even friendlier complimentary cat! :)
Atmosphere is great, not to many people, so if you are after piece and quiet its the place to be!
Get ready to do some walking up and down a steep hill, but it is worth it!
(can always rent a car/quad/scooter)
We stayed there for 4 nights and when we were getting in the car to leave I couldn't help but shed a couple of tears - I really wanted to stay longer but we had to go back to work :(
The villa is perfectly situated at the top of the hill (the uphill walk is not for the fainthearted and that's exactly why we hired a car - it's doable on foot but it is indeed steep) which means the views from the property are AMAZING. The place is the ultimate destination for relaxing and chilling out. All you can hear is the song of the tzitziki bug which, living abroad, I had forgotten what it sounded like and I was so happy to hear it again. Extra points for nostalgia reasons right there.
The pool is beautiful, the surrounding area with the BBQ is really nice to have a get together and a meal. The pool area also was equipped with two beautiful cats (I'm obsessed with cats so that was a plus!) and a cute dog. Ginger (ironically a tabby cat!) slept on my lap a few times at the pool! <3
The rooms have brand new beds and are very spacious. They all come with a little kitchenette, fully equipped with fridge, cutlery, coffee, sugar and other essentials. I really liked that there was a shared washing machine that we could use.
Major points for room comfort: the studios are equipped with ceiling fans along with AC - I really don't like AC and I'd rather roast in the room than turn it on. The fan cooled down the room very nicely without giving it an Alaska feeling. Tasteful furniture in the room, not at all common for a Greek hotel. The balcony had its own little clothes airer with pegs!!! We didn't have to resort to MacGyver tricks to hang our swimsuits and beach towels, we just popped them on there :) Very thoughtful of the owners.
Both Marie and Costas were friendly and helpful and they really took good care of the property, they were both up early tidying up and just being there in general. You never got a feeling that you were left alone on the property, if you needed something they were always around.
I would recommend this hotel to everyone who is looking for tranquillity and amazing views. Really good stuff, we honestly hope to come back.
We had the most amazing holiday, Marie and Costas are wonderful Hosts. The villa and studios themselves are cosy and comfortable. The view is out of this world! All of the studios are equipt with a large double bed, bedside cabinets, wardrobe, kitchenette, wet room and verandah/balcony.
The town is only a nice 10 minute walk down the mountain which is scenic and beautiful. The trek up is hard but we enjoyed the exercise. If you were older, unfit, unwell or have young kids I'd reccomend getting a car which start from as little as around €30 a day! We hired a boat for the day (€60-€150 excluding fuel €40 max) to visit turtle island (Marathonisi) and to see Keri caves and many more. To visit the famous Navagio beach you either have to rent a private boat with a captain (€500-€800) or you can drive which u can't get in the water or get on a big cruise which costs maximum €40 each. There are many restaurants down the mountain where all the locals are friendly, even the stray animals! I can't fault Villa Eora in the slightest, I consider Marie and Costas to be life long friends now, they made us feel so welcome. Thank you! We can not WAIT to return next year! xxx

We had a wonderful stay at Villa Eora...the complex is divided up into studios and a house part so if you want a large group you can have 6-8 in the house, or if there's only a couple you can have a studio. We loved it from the minute we arrived. The view over the Bay is stunning and the view toward the mountains is awe-inspiring too...I loved relaxing in the hammock watching the sun go down. The owners are so warm and hospitable...they really look after you keeping the grounds and rooms clean, providing fresh towels, making sure the pool is immaculate to swim in each day...you really couldn't ask for more. You would definitely need a car, as it is up a very steep track, the road is unmade for the last short 500m.
The little village of Limni Keri has some great tavernas as well...this is a great base to explore the island, and you will find great value for money at Villa Eora.
