Aresti Mountain Villas

Towards the end of my holiday on Zakynthos, I actually stumbled upon the Stamaris family's Aresti Mountain Resort by accident. That morning I had snorkelled at one of the rocky bays of the island and then had a bite to eat at a restaurant. I hadn't ordered my drink yet or Fenia Stamaris came and sat next to me. She turned out to be the owner of a large estate further down the road and she also told me that she not only worked her land herself, but also rented out a couple of luxury villas. And of course I was interested!

Fenia let me come along and immediately gave me a tour. Walking around her gigantic estate, you immediately see the love the family has for the island. The old farmhouse has been restored to its original state and the villas, each with its own garden and swimming pool, have been built according to the local architecture. The red earth is fertile, olives, vines and fruit trees grow in abundance and the land smells deliciously of thyme and sage. What a space and tranquillity! There was nothing else to do than to extend my holiday a bit. Because a week in this wonderful place was not to be missed!

The best way to discover your destination is by car!

Are you booking a flight holiday? Then a rental car of the lowest category (Small Class) is selected as standard for your trip and you have the option of upgrading the rental car. You can pick up the rental car at the airport and drive to your accommodation yourself. 

Are you booking a holiday with own transportation? Then the rental car is not included in your trip and you can (at some destinations) book the rental car if you are interested. When you book your rental car, you can pick it up at your destination and drive to your accommodation yourself. The transport to the pick-up point of the rental car is arranged by you.

  • The prices on this page are upgrade prices. They are indicative for your selected travel duration in the chosen season.
  • The car models shown are indicative of the category they fall into. A rental car in the Small Classe with full insurance cover is included as standard for your holiday. After booking, we will check if the chosen car is available. If it is not, we will try to offer you a suitable alternative. In exceptional cases it may happen that no rental car is available. In both cases we will contact you to discuss the options.
