Tots Exclusive Family Deal
Prepare to relax from the moment you step into this beautiful Greek resort. Spread over three acres, this resort offers first-class childcare, your choice of pools, and the chance for you to unwind.
The villa has distant views of the beautiful nearby sea, with an open plan living area, where your whole family can spend time together; outside, you'll have a private terrace and, as well as your own plunge pool.
There are several different Tots Sea View Villas available at Periyali, which are all very similar in style; these vary in layout and the prices vary slightly depending on which villa you choose to book.
The family can splash about in your private pool, or take a trip to the resort pool, where there is a separate toddler pool, as well as a bar area and sun loungers to relax.
Little ones can make friends and play at the crèche and children’s club, which offer first-class childcare with fully-qualified British nannies.
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.
Flights and Car Hire Included
Your booking for this villa comes complete with flights and car hire included. Several flights are available to choose leaving from Heathrow and Gatwick, regional airports are available on request.
The car hire is organised locally for you and all Tots bookings come complete with air-conditioning and the age appropriate forward facing car seat for your child/children. Parents that require a rear facing car seat for small babies will need to bring one with them.
The Morris Family, May 2015
A brilliant service from start to finish. We were looking for a relaxing family holiday with a 3 year old and an 18 month old (I wasn't sure one existed!), but it was sorted with a wonderful trip to Periyali Villas. The service was excellent from my first phone call when enquiring about holidays, to the helpfulness at the airport on our departure from Zakynthos. Good customer service from start to finish is rare these days, but so important if you want a relaxing family holiday.
The Gavin Family, July 2015
Excellent family holiday, children are desperate for us to rebook for next year. Will keep the images of the beautiful location and sense of tranquility close till we can get back and top them up.

One toy box with a selection of toys is supplied per villa
There are several different Tots Sea View Villas available at Periyali, which are all very similar in style but the layout between villas is slightly varied. Some are on a single level and others have a bedroom upstairs or on a mezzanine level above the sitting room.
Inside, each villa has an open plan living, dining and kitchen area, which is light and airy with comfy sofas; ideal for flexible family living. Patio doors lead out from the living space to your enclosed terrace, which is the perfect spot to enjoy a family barbecue or an evening drink.
The villas all have a twin and a double bedroom with enough room for an additional cot; they have a separate family bathroom and some villas also have an additional en suite adjoining the double bedroom.
You'll have your own enclosed terrace and a private pool with your villa.
The outdoor dining table on the terrace is perfect for enjoying an al fresco meal with the family.
The plunge pool is great for a little splash about with the family, with roman steps leading down into the water; there are also sun loungers poolside to relax on.
Outside of your private area, you can enjoy the whole three-acre Periyali resort and gardens in complete safety as it is fully enclosed for guests only.
Perfect for socialising, there’s a shared swimming pool with steps into the water, and a separate toddler pool. The poolside bar area is a lovely place to relax with a snack or light meal from the bar.
The crèche and children’s club are focused on providing families with everything that they could need; all nannies are English-speaking with a NNEB qualification or equivalent to provide the best welfare for your child. There is a charge for childcare with full-day or half-day options, and you will need to book in advance.
The purpose-built Clubhouse welcomes children from the age of six months to 10 years with a choice of morning, afternoon and extra evening sessions, depending on whether you book half day or full day sessions.
There’s a separate room for babies and toddlers, with sensory toys and books to stimulate the minds of little ones, with a nursery room for naps.
For children aged four to 10 years, the Turtle Club is full of all of the latest toys and games, which are updated every year. There is a large outdoor area, which is safely enclosed and shaded from the sun, which has a sandpit, play area and outdoor toys.
There will be lots more time for them to make new friends during the activities, which include face painting, mask making, and theme days with fancy dress, as well as nature trails and scavenger hunts to get them adventuring.
The evening crèche session is the perfect opportunity for you to have a well-deserved night off, where you can head into Zakynthos for dinner and drinks.
Periyali is located at the southern tip of the island of Zakynthos and is fully enclosed with plenty to keep the whole family entertained; however, it is also just a short stroll to the closest beach. A car is included in your holiday package, so you can freely explore the island.
A 10 minute walk away, the famous beach and conservation area of Gerakas is a great day out. Named by The Sunday Times as one of the twelve ‘Top Beaches of Europe’, there’s a stunning expanse of sand and shallow, clean waters, ideal for children.
It is also a turtle nesting beach and turtle conservation, so there may even be the chance to spot some of these lovely creatures on the sand or in the water.
Because the area is protected, it is not built up, so there are stunning views to be seen.
Just a 10 minute drive away, Mavratzis Beach (sometimes known as Vasilikos Beach) is located in a small bay.
In the past two years, it has undergone a complete make over and is now equipped with loos and showers as well as a privately owned snack bar; there’s free parking here and the beach has sun bed and shade rental.
The sea is shallow for quite a way out from the beach and there are no water sports, so it’s a great place for little ones to splash about.
Food and Drink
For a taste of authentic Greek food, there are local restaurants and bars close to the resort; in fact, there are a few tavernas a five minute walk away, which have a laid-back atmosphere, perfect for taking the kids along.
Arts and Ceramics
A five minute drive from the resort, you’ll find Hanne Mi Ceramic Art Studio, which runs ceramic classes for all ages every Tuesday and Saturday from 10am to 12pm.
Loads of fun for kids and adults alike, you can create your own piece of pottery, paint it and come back a few days later to collect your own ceramic work of art. You can even have a go on the potters’ wheel.
A 10 minute drive away is the starting point for Mario’s Glass Bottom Boat Tour. Great fun for the whole family, the boat takes you to Turtle Island where you can watch the turtles swim.
There’s even the chance to swim in the sea and see where the turtles lay their eggs; there are life jackets available for little ones so they won’t miss out.
Nature on the island has been left untouched, so visitors can experience the primitive beauty. Passengers on Mario’s boat are usually the first visitors to the beach, so it is very peaceful and tranquil.
It is a 30 minute drive to Zakynthos town, which is the island’s capital. There are plenty of shops, restaurants and museums to visit, as well as the local harbour.
If you want to see some culture and do some shopping while the kids are at the childcare centre, Zakynthos is the town to visit.
For a fun day out, the Wet ‘n’ Wild water village is a 30-minute drive away in Sarakinado. There’s plenty to entertain all ages, from small play areas for little ones and the gentle Lazy River, to the speedy Black Hole.
There are bars and cafes here too for food and drinks.
