Ilyessa Cottages

Together with my Greek friend Iris, I ended up in a cute little village called Psarou, on the coast of the island Zakynthos. We walk through the narrow streets and decide to have a coffee in a local bar. The owner happily sings along with the Greek music on the radio. We start talking and he tells us all about the area and a special place in the neighbourhood where we can spend the night. The holiday location is Ilyessa Cottages, a green estate with typical Greek houses. A tickling feeling in my stomach tells me that Iris and I have to visit this place.

Before we know it we're in the car with the route description we just received. After a few minutes' drive we arrive at Ilyessa Cottages. What a colourful place! The orange, red, and yellow houses sparkle amidst nature. Good morning ladies, how can I help you? I introduce myself and Iris and tell them we are looking for a nice place to stay. The owner tells me we are at the right place and leads us around the cute little Greek houses.

On a stone path we walk between the olive trees, past the cosy bar and the swimming pool, which looks inviting. We walk on and I look in love at the red house on the other side. "This is my favourite, I think," I whisper to Iris. We immediately ask the owner if we can stay in the cute little red house. "Naturally ladies! Would you like to go for a ride with me on the horses tomorrow? Wow, a beautiful ride through this nature, I don't say no to that.I can't wait for tomorrow.
