Villa Amoulakis – Zakynthos, Greece
With its seafront location, outdoor kitchen, entertaining areas and extraordinary Ionian views, Amoulakis is unsurprisingly a firm favourite. Cool, contemporary beautifully styled interiors and spacious rooms, it’s relaxed and welcoming, making it very easy to spend at least a week here. It’s only a short drive from the Peligoni, and close to local restaurants.
The villa is ideal for large family groups and friends – two double en suite bedrooms on one side of a courtyard, with three further bedrooms (one en suite and two sharing a bathroom) on the other, with the sixth twin bedroom by the pool.

The Peligoni is a membership club, so when you book a villa, you’ll also book membership that covers your entire stay. This gives you access to all the facilities and activities that the Peligoni has to offer and there’s no end of things to occupy the whole family for a week or more. The water sports here are excellent, with tuition for beginners and a whole host of equipment that the more experienced can use.
There’s sailing, windsurfing, paddle boarding kayaking, and when the conditions are good, water skiing, wakeboarding and wake surfing. There is also a speed boat that guests can hire. For people who prefer to stay dry, the club has tennis courts and coaching and bike hire with guided tours. And for those who can’t sit still for long, there are fitness classes and a gym. Alternatively, take advantage of some free time and just book into the Spa for a couple of treatments. There is always something going on, so be sure to keep an eye out for evening events too.
The sixth bedroom is best suited to teenagers or a nanny as its access is from outside near the pool. There are lots of shaded chill out areas, one with a table tennis table. The Peligoni strikes the perfect balance for active families. The childcare here always gets rave reviews, from its crèche to the brilliantly organised Sharky & George kids’ activity programmes, to the teen activities.
Children can learn to sail or windsurf, have kayaking and paddle boarding tuition and will come away having made a lot of new friends and had a very active holiday.
The Peligoni Club
Villa Amoulakis is attached to The Peligoni Club – a unique concept which allows all the family to relax away from the villa in their own way. The club is the base of all the activities and services for guests booked into one of our villas and in our opinion a great perk to your holiday. With a laid back vibe it is a members only beach club that offers a relaxed style of luxury. With excellent childcare, water sports, biking, yoga, long lunches with friends, the club is a hub of conviviality and fun, whatever your age.
Peligoni is a membership club, so when you book a villa, you’ll also need to book membership that covers your entire stay.
