Tots Exclusive Family Deal
This stunning Greek resort is set in three acres of gardens with everything your family could need in the way of sun, safety and fun, so you’ll get the chance to relax.
The detached villa is set on a single storey, so there are no stairs for wobbly little legs. The open plan living area is bright and welcoming with a kitchen, dining table and sitting area.
Immediately outside your villa, there’s a private terrace and barbecue area, for laid-back evening meals; this leads through a gate to your own private plunge pool.
For more sociable days, head to the shared pool, which has a separate toddler pool for new swimmers. There is a bar area here, where you can enjoy a drink and a snack, with a children's menu available.
The resort offers a fun Clubhouse with a creche and kids' club run by qualified British nannies; for children as young as six months and up to 10 years. There’s also a supervised children’s evening crèche session at the kids’ club.
Periyali is located at the southern-most tip of the Greek island of Zakynthos, conveniently close to local tavernas and a 10 minute walk from a sheltered beach with calm blue waters; the laid-back vibe of the area will help you to feel relaxed, even on trips out and about.

Knight Family, August 2018
Lovely, peaceful location.
The Webb Family, October 2017
Great location if you want to be walking distance from both beach & taverna - not fancy but perfect for our 2 year old and 4 month baby. Staff at the creche were fantastic.
The Mackay Family, May 2015
We had a great stay in Zakynthos. It was our first holiday with Iain being just 15 months old, and I was a bit nervous as to how things would go but it was perfect. Iain went to the creche most afternoons and was very happy there, thanks to all the girls who looked after him. The creche was great with a lot to do, and he came back at the end of the week with a book full of his 'art' and a chocolate krispie biscuit which I had to eat in case it melted.
The Juttner-Hart Family, May 2015
