Villa Spiros offers clean and modern accommodation as well as culinary vacations in peaceful and relaxing surroundings.
Denia is the manager and daughter of the family. She was born and raised in Zakynthos, and studied Economics in the UK. She prides herself on running the family business and if you ask her what makes a successful business season, her answer would be not how many people had been guests this year, but how many are booking to return next year. Indeed, most guests at Villa Spiros have visited before and new guests cannot wait to come back, testament to the attention and care given to guests from the host family.

"A taste of Zakynthos"
I enjoyed cooking and trying the different recipes and seeing new places. Everyone made me feel very welcome. More interesting than sitting by the pool all day! I would definitely try another creative break. Thank you to Tony, Eleftheria and Denia!
