A holiday right on the sea! How often can you get out of bed and have your morning swim in a cristal clear sea within two minutes? Tramontana with its beautiful garden winding down to the sea offers just this! With a variety of terraces, alfresco eating areas, sunbathing areas and sheltered or sunny hideaways, this villa thrills those who want to party, those who want to do nothing ,or those wanting to escape with a book, for competitive families there is a boule pitch and shaded table tennis!

The entrance to Tramontana is through a wooden door leading to a protected courtyard, from which you enter the main house with large French doors giving out onto the swimming pool and breathtaking sea views.

Go into the honeymoon bedroom where even the bath looks over the sea to the Island of Kefalonia! This large peaceful bedroom not only has...

Interaction with guests
You will be welcomed by either the owners or the manager of DormanVillas at a small - easy to find - cafe overlooking the Port of Aghios Nicolas and then taken to your villa where once you have been shown how the essentials work, and where a detailed House Book is, we will leave you to relax and enjoy your holiday. We will not disturb you anymore but this does not mean that we would not be delighted to enthuse with you about the variety of exciting things Zakynthos offers , so if you are keen to know our favourite beaches or tavernas, where to get the best ice creams, e.t.c. please do not hesitate to ask us.

This place is absolutely amazing. Spotless, magical and was the perfect setting for our wedding. My husband and I were searching for months to find a villa suitable to take the family for our wedding. We decided on Zante as that's where he proposed back in 2011. Having a 21 month old we opted for a villa rather than a...

John and Pauline were our hosts. The photos hardly due justice to the setting and ambiance. If you like to live comfortably on the sea with every possible comfort..check this out. The gardens are truly spectacular. So many places to sit or dine or be alone.Never ran out of hot water! We arranged for a chef from the village one...

We could not have been happier with this villa for our stay on Zakynthos. The layout was beautiful with tons of comfortable places to sit in the sun or shade and enjoy the view while reading or sharing a meal. There was ample space for everyone to spread out but a great communal space and main cottage. The view was...

Thank you for taking the trouble to write those kind words about Tramontana, we hope you will come back soon!

About the neighbourhood
From Micro Nisi and Aghios Nicolas, you can rent a boat to explore little coves & beaches, water ski, snorkle in azure clear water. For young children wishing to bucket & spade Alikes & Alikanas (25 min away) offer long sandy beaches, all the usual beach attractions, (windsurfers, pedalos, etc) and endless tavernas leading right down to the sea.

There are several scuba diving centres on the island. You can enjoy the marine life with a glass bottomed boat or visit the famous Shipwreck Bay from the sea which is equally dramatic to look down on from the top of the cliffs!

Nearby is the hill town of Volimes, the centre of the island's weaving industry and where charming local pottery, and other quality souvenirs can be bought at reasonable prices. Beware if in Volime...
Car recommended
How to get there
Airport: Zakynthos: 31.0 km
Ferry: Zak. from Kilini, Aghios Nicolas from Kefalonia: 26.0 km
Good News - a new addition to flights from the UK has been made this year with BA flying directly to Zakynthos. So with EasyJet and the various charter flights, there is a good choice. Car hire from the aport is easily arranged through most of the well known companies.
We will give you directions from the airport to a little cafe overlooking the art of Aghios Nikolas (Volimes) where we will welcome you before leading you to your villa 5 minutes away. Unfortunately the Sat Nav on the island can lead you on a very pretty but crazy route so please do not rely on it!
