Unique and idyllic villas for rent on the Ionian Sea

Few locales on earth contain the mythology and splendour of Greece. Gods and grandeur, history and mystery, parables and paradise; Greece – both ancient and contemporary – provides the perfect place to luxuriate in the opulence of escape. Greece, one could easily argue, is the very embodiment of what we dream of when we lie awake in need of a vacation.

Not too long ago the Taylors from Buckinghamshire stumbled across Zakynthos, an island born of another time on the majesty of the Ionian Sea. They found the absence of commercialization and overcrowding that populated many vacation spots to be an elixir of sorts. The reverie of that visit became the reality of dreams as they built a home on Zakynthos. But they wanted to share that experience, and welcome guests from all over the world to their paradise. One villa became two, became three and now they boast a full selection of bespoke, luxury, family villas. These new villas form The Asteri Collection.

The unique and idyllic villas are located on an unspoiled corner of Zakynthos, dancing in the shimmer of the Ionian Sea, among islands known “for their startling beauty; dramatic, lush landscape and crystal clear blue waters.”

The secluded and private villas are “nestled amongst olive groves and surrounded by cypress trees. Only a short walk away is the picturesque port of Agios Nikolaos. Here guests will find a pretty little beach, a couple of mini markets and delightful, family-run
tavernas. Many an afternoon has been spent sitting with feet in the sea while tasting delicious, freshly caught fish.”

The Asteri Collection is, in every way, the essence of luxury escape. There’s no pressure to accommodate the traditions of tourism, no intrusive overpopulation, or demanding guides. The Taylors promise “guests can choose to do as little or as much as they like. If they enjoy cooking, we have well-equipped indoor and outdoor kitchens in all villas. However, if they prefer a little less effort, we can arrange for one of our private chefs to visit and do all the hard work. Our in-villa concierge will arrange anything from spa treatments to boat trips and everything in between. We have never come across a request that we couldn’t accommodate!”

Often it feels as if our vacations are waking dreams, a fantasy that we can only capture in the nostalgia of digital memory. But, in the mythology and mysticism of Greece, in a quiet corner of Zakynthos, the decadent desires of vacations can exist in analog – real-time apparitions of vacations that will seemingly last forever.

The setting was perfect, and the villa was outstanding – so beautiful, a stunning contemporary design and all the luxuries we hoped for.
