Charming cottages sleeping 15 with an infinity pool, for relaxing holidays and yoga retreats, on Zakynthos, Greece

Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends.
Xyloporta, Zakynthos, Greece, sleeps 2-15 in 7 bedrooms.

Xyloporta, on the Greek island of Zakynthos, sleeps up to 15 and is perfect for large groups of friends or for 2 or 3 families coming together for special holidays. We accommodate yoga retreats, art workshops and groups of walkers, and it is excellent for parties and celebrations: have a look at our video!

There are beautiful walks into the hills and around the coast, cycling routes to explore and simple tavernas to enjoy. The nearest beach is about 7 minutes away by car and the nearest restaurant a 10 minute walk. There is plenty to explore and visit (the local winery, beaches, walks over the hills, Cephalonia) but a car is essential.

Over 100 years old but recently renovated, Xyloporta is a group of small one-storey cottages allowing each guest their own entrance and terrace area. The property is secluded and peaceful, at the end of a quiet track and surrounded on 2 sides by olive groves and a landscaped garden area.

Just one cottage also has an upper storey with a Juliet balcony looking out over the sea. The cottages have similar simple interiors but each one is individual in size and shape, and each has an en suite bathroom or wetroom. The family room has a child's bedroom off the main room so parents of a young child can be close by. There is WiFi, and air conditioning in the bedrooms.

Based broadly around the central courtyard shaded by plumbago and olive trees, the main living, eating and cooking "house" is spacious with 2 very large windows that can be fully opened, allowing for the sea breezes to sweep through on hot afternoons. The kitchen is open plan and designed for use by large parties. The sitting area is generous, with 2 three-seater sofas and 2 armchairs around a coffee table, and a large fireplace ensuring this property works well in the spring and autumn as well as high summer.

The large terrace is half-shadowed by the pergola and beyond is the infinity-edged pool dropping into the olive groves below and a smaller, shaded pool for children, shallow enough for little ones to splash in safely. Both the pool terrace and the barbecue area can seat 15 at a large table.


Extra-large electric oven plus gas hob, 2 fridges, microwave, 3 sinks for vegetable preparation, a dishwasher and a water-purifying tap.
