Villa Cara is a rather special hideaway close to the sea on the south coast of sandy beaches.
Surrounded by hillsides of olive groves the villa looks out over a spectacular, natural landscape of pine and cypress to the sea and in the distance, the island of Zakynthos (Zante). In the other direction the villa looks up to the foothills of Mount Aenos.
Sunsets are theatrical.
The villa is set within private grounds of over an acre of beautifully landscaped gardens (grass lawns for children). No near neighbours intrude and there is total privacy and tranquillity.
In the gardens you will find orange, lemon, lime, mandarin, pear, apricot, cherry and plum trees. Colour throughout the season is provided by bougainvillea, bottle brush, hibiscus, geranium, agapanthus, lemongrass and jasmine.
The villa has two floors of sumptuously comfortable accommodation – each one with sitting room and kitchen.
The villa’s location, just a 5 minute drive from the village of Spartia, is countrified and secluded.
Private swimming pool 15 x 4 metres & depth 1.4 metres
Maid service and linen change once weekly (towels changed twice weekly)

"We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday. The villa and its location met the criteria I gave you when I was looking for a holiday (easy journey from Heathrow, quiet location, lovely views from the villa etc). On that basis, I would definitely use you again.
Excellent location in terms of easy to do shopping and get to the sea!
We were extremely happy with the large kitchen which was very well equipped. It was great to have the use of such a large pool also."

"Just a quick note to say that we are home from our holiday in Villa Cara having had a fabulous time! The villa was perfect and the ideal contrast to our sailing week.
It was perhaps the best equipped villa I have ever stayed in too. The views were glorious and the outside space was perfect for our family of four boys!
We particularly enjoyed having Viva come in and cater for us one evening. She was completely at home in the villa, made a mountain of food which kept us going well beyond that evening and was so interesting to chat to as well.
Thanks Karron for your help in organising taxis and the car hire changes; everything was exactly as required."

"Absolutely stunning in all aspects, best equipped villa we have ever rented in over 25 years.
If you have a big family or two families, this is the place .Peaceful surroundings with lovely views of Zante made outdoor living an absolute pleasure.
Could not get our two boys out of the superb pool or for that matter us! A perfect place to recharge your batteries."

"Thought I should let you know immediately of an issue with Cara..... it's totally unbelievable the largest best appointed and situated property we've ever stayed in, absolutely incredible!! More later when I've got over the from shock!
Just a follow up e-mail after our return. We had a marvellous week in Kefalonia, truly outstanding. The villa was first class and the location ideal."
