This very special and cosy cottage right on the sea sleeps 5 people. It is located in Vasilikos, Zakynthos island (Zante), Greece.
At the southernmost tip of the island, at Gerakas cape, you will find this cosy pink cottage in an oak forest with a private garden with sea view and a path leading down to a small secluded beach. On the other side of the cape, only a five-minute walk from Gerakas cottage, there is the famous Gerakas turtle beach, which belongs to the Zakynthos National Marine Park.
Gerakas beach is a 500 meters long sandy shallow beach with no buildings on or around it. As it is one of the most important nesting beaches for the giant Loggerhead Sea Turtle (Caretta caretta) there are certain restrictions but Gerakas beach is open for visitors from sunrise to sunset every day.
The house has 3 bedrooms with double beds and single beds. One of the bedrooms has a separate entrance.
There is one bathroom with shower and washing machine. The kitchen has an oven, cookers, fridge, freezer, and complete kitchen utensils.
The combined living room-dining room has dinner table for 6 and a fireplace. The large veranda in front of the house is facing west and is furnished with tables and chairs.
There is lots of space in the garden to put up your hammock, sun beds, chairs or a coffee table wherever you like.
The garden is partly an old oak forest where the ground between the oaks has been cleared of bushes to limit the risk for fire and to be able to use it as a garden. At the end of the forest, about 50 meters from the cottage, there are the cliffs overlooking the sea. A small path leads you down to a secluded beach with pebbles, which has natural shade and is a fantastic place for snorkelling and skin diving.
Gerakas village has a well-equipped mini-market known for its good service and fine selection of groceries. There are three family taverns and a coffee bar in the area.
There is also a car and bicycle rental in the village.
