One toy box with a selection of toys is supplied per villa


This two-bedroom villa is laid out on a single storey, which is ideal for being close to the little ones at all times, and means that there’s no tricky stairs for wobbly little walkers.

Entering the villa, you’ll feel immediately welcomed into the light and airy open plan living area, where there is a dining table, sitting area and kitchen, which has colourful kids’ crockery.

There’s a beautifully relaxing beach villa vibe in here, with white and blue décor and high ceilings, which are open up to the rafters; there are comfy sofas in the sitting area with a television and selection of children’s DVDs.

The hallway leads to the two bedrooms and the family bathroom, which has both a bath and a shower.

The children’s bedroom has twin beds with both shutters and curtains to provide complete darkness, so little ones will sleep the whole night through (and maybe even past dawn!)


Attached to your villa, you'll find an enclosed dining terrace and a pool.

The small plunge pool is perfect for a little splash about with the family, with Roman steps leading down into the water; there are sun loungers poolside to relax on.

Outside of your private garden, the shared resort swimming pool is perfect for socialising, with steps into the water, and a separate toddler pool to splash about in.  The shared pool area is not fully enclosed so little ones will need supervision in this area.

Enjoy a snack or drink from the poolside bar, which has a kids’ menu.

The crèche and children’s club are run by English-speaking nannies with a NNEB qualification or equivalent to provide the best care for your children; there are full-day and half-day options, which incur an additional charge, and you'll need to book in advance.

Children from the ages of six months and up to 10 years are catered for and the options for sessions include morning and afternoon sessions with an extra evening crèche session, depending on which childcare you have booked.

The Hatchling's Club has a separate room for babies and toddlers up to the age of three, with sensory toys and books to stimulate the minds of little ones, with a nursery room for naps.

The Turtle Club for children aged four to 10 is full of all of the latest toys and games, which are updated every year.  The large outdoor area has a sandpit, outdoor toys and a play area, and is safely enclosed with plenty of shade.

Daily activities will get little ones socialising with face painting and mask making for creativity and scavenger hunts for little adventurers.

The evening crèche session provides the perfect opportunity for parents to venture into Zakynthos for a well-deserved evening meal alone, followed by a drink or two.

View More Periyali Villas

Periyali is situated at the southern tip of Zakynthos, just a short stroll from the closest beach.  You will also get a car included in your holiday package, so you can explore more of the island.


The famous beach and conservation area of Gerakas is just a 10 minute stroll from Periyali and has been named as one of the twelve ‘Top Beaches of Europe’ by The Sunday Times.  Perfect for little splashers, the beach has soft sand and shallow waters.

There may also be a chance of spotting some turtles, as the beach is a turtle conserservation sanctuary, and they also go there to nest.

If you fancy a change, Mavratzis Beach (or Vasilikos Beach) is located in a small bay just a 10 minute drive away.

It has recently been renovated so there are plenty of loos and showers, as well as sun bed and shade rental; it has free parking and a privately owned snack bar.

It is quite a walk into the sea before it is deep enough to swim, so there’s plenty of shallow water for babies and toddlers to play.

Food and Drink

There are local tavernas just a five minute walk from the resort, where you can taste authentic Greek food and experience the relaxed local atmosphere, which is great when you have little ones.

Arts and Ceramics

Hanne Mi Ceramic Art Studio is a five minute drive from the resort; they run ceramic classes for young and old, which take place every Tuesday and Saturday from 10am to 12pm.

The whole family can craft pottery together and even have a go on the potter’s wheel - come back a few days later, and you can take your new ceramic art home with you.

Boat Tour

Mario’s Glass Bottom Boat Tours are well-loved for the friendly hosts and amazing sights.  Tours travel out to Turtle Island where the whole family can enjoy watching turtles swim.

There’s a chance to swim in the sea where the turtles lay their eggs, and little ones won’t miss out, as life jackets are available.

The peaceful beach is a sight of untouched, primitive beauty and boat passengers are usually the first visitors to the beach.

Zakynthos Town

If you want to do some shopping and experience a touch of Greek culture, take a visit to Zakynthos Town, which is a 30 minute drive from the resort.  There are plenty of places to stop for a bite to eat, and the harbour is a lovely place to visit, especially at night.

Water Park

If you’re looking for a family day out, take a trip to the Wet ‘n’ Wild water village, which is in Sarakinado, a 30 minute drive from the resort.  Perfect for all ages, there are small play areas for little ones, the Lazy River, and the speedy Black Hole.

For a bite to eat, there are bars and cafes at the water village.
