Nepheli was a nymph who was the first wife of Athamas, King of Orchomenus.
Villa Nepheli is one of 6 beautiful villas set on a hillside promontory above the sea just outside the port of Agios Nikolaos on Zakynthos’ north east coast.
Each villa has its own private terraces and gardens to ensure an individual feeling of privacy and independence. The grounds of each villa are divided by hillside terraces of olive trees, rows of grape vines and wild myrtle, pine and cypress trees.
Nepheli's TV is linked to an underwater camera (situated in the sea below the villa) for those who want to search for seals and starfish from their armchair.
Villa Nepheli has traditional island interiors of stone and wood with high standards of modern comfort. Spacious rooms open out on to large terraces with powerful views along the coastline and across the sea to Kefalonia.
A stepped pathway leads down to the sea below where private kayaks are kept for exploring the nearby sea caves.
The villa is equipped with snorkelling equipment, fishing tackle and binoculars.
A welcome pack on arrival contains wine, olive oil, fresh fruit, seasonal vegetables, olives and herbs – all grown organically on the estate.
Private swimming pool 35 sq metres & depth 1.40 metres
Maid service & linen change once weekly (extra service provided on request)
