Excellent value for money with some of the best views over Marathonisi Bay. Shared pool facility and short walk to the sea. Great for families on a budget.
Perfect for those seeking a secluded location with shared swimming pool and close to the sea
Villa Genni, with its spectacular view over the Marathonisi Natural Reserve, is situated 1.5kms from Limni Keriou. The property is set in lush gardens with a shared swimming pool. From the property, a pathway leads approx 300m down to the small, secluded beach of Marathia. Genni is divided into seven apartments all with private entrance and each with a large terrace or balcony, and with uninterrupted views over Marathonisi Bay and island. Furnishings are tasteful, simple and modern.
Situated on the ground floor, there is one double bedroom, one twin bedroom and a 3rd bedroom with bunk beds. There is an open plan sitting room and kitchen, two bathrooms and a large stone terrace overlooking the swimming pool and bay below.

We are indeed back and we had a FABULOUS time!
I'm already scouting the website for next years adventure (it's the only way to get over a previous hol, I find!).
TBH, I can't fault the entire experience - we found dealing with the PGV's team easy and that all the right amount of info etc. was provided at the right times. Our queries (which were perhaps more than normal, due to all the media news reporting at the time), were answered promptly and thoughtfully.
One of the most appreciated gestures was arranging for us to be able to store our luggage and use the pool / facilities on our day of departure, beyond our check out time. That was a life-saver :) and made us feel like you go the 'extra mile' for your clients.
Genni and Thanassis themselves were perfect hosts; kind, helpful and just let us get on with it all, whilst knowing they would always be nearby, if needed.
The apartment itself was clean and spacious - two bathrooms was a welcome element! - and adequately decorated / furnished (dishwasher and washing machine in the apartment would have been the icing on the cake, esp for the larger groups / families) but it was the view that was priceless. The photos just didn't (couldn't) do it justice :) As it was dark when we arrived, we had the treat of seeing it in the morning and it took our breath away!
The grounds were also beautiful and very well kept. We really felt like we had a lot of outside space and privacy, being at the end of the 'block' which was lovely. The whole property had a wonderfully calm and serene atmosphere.
Zakinthos sells itself really, it is by far the most stunning and lush island I have visited and it offers holiday-makers so much. We would recommend it - and Pretty Greek Villa's - to everyone (whilst we would like to keep them our secret!).
Genni Apartments suited our family as it was, as promised, off the beaten track and well away from all the noise and bustle of the busy resorts, which was perfect for us. Having driven around [most] of the island, we can confirm they are definitely in the most picturesque part of the island, with ideal links to the airport and towns and that million dollar view!
So, thanks again for a memorable holiday - we hope to be booking through you again for 2016.

Thank you for your email, we all had the most wonderful holiday in Genni apartments on Zakynthos.
The location was amazing, the apartments spotlessly clean and comfortable. Genni and her husband were always on hand if we needed them and they were both very welcoming and friendly. The lady who cleaned and changed the bed linen was also lovely - we were all very impressed with how well we were looked after.
We were very sad to leave, we are missing the fantastic views and lovely sunshine. However, we are all very well rested and feel we have had a proper holiday, so thank you all for that! The whole process from booking to arriving has been smooth and easy - you have kept us informed and up to date at all times. We won't hesitate to recommend you to friends and family, and certainly if we decide to come to Greece again we will come to you first.
Thank you all very much again for great service and a brilliant holiday.
