ANTA House can be rented out as a whole, including the apartment upstairs and the studio downstairs. The 2 units can also be rented separately. If bookings overlap in time, the visitors (groups) share the garden of the house. The garden is an olive grove of 4000m². This is fenced off, so you can have your dog with you and let it run freely in the garden. ANTA house is an ideal venue for seminars and events.
About the house:
What makes ANTA House one of the outstanding places on the island is it’s relatively isolated location very close to a less frequented beach and with beautiful views from each of its windows and verandas. You can sit in your bed and enjoy watching the sea while still being in privacy, as neighbors are not close by.
The villa is a 250m² building build with simple natural materials. The doors and windows are wooden, the floors and bathrooms made of marble and ceramic. The wooden roof is also covered with traditional roof tiles. The furniture is hand made from natural materials. Altogether it has a simple, rustic look and feeling with lots of light.
The garden is kept with water resistant plants and as simple as possible. Thousand year old olive groves are cultivated in the area where one can enjoy beautiful walks under the trees and along the coastline. The settlement is at the edge of tourist development, therefore supermarkets, restaurants and beach bars are at a walking distance.
The Laganas tourist resort with night clubs and shopping area is about 25 minutes walking distance. Overall it’s a place suitable for nature lovers who like waking up and jumping into the sea.
I am a biologist, nature conservationist and councilor. I came to Zakynthos in the 80’s to identify the residing rare monk seal population. I dedicated myself to the establishment of the national marine park of Zakynthos, which was finally created in 1999.
I can offer guests lots of good off-track tips and alternative tourist activities, like guided tours in the national marine park and other areas of the island. I now live in Austria, where I sell Zakynthian olive oil to support a social-environmental project on the island.
Some of my favourite things to do on the island are taking walks and swimming.
About the neighbourhood:
The sea and beach are great for swimming and hanging out. The olive grove is fine for walks and bicycling. There are beach bars and restaurants close by. Places to rent cars, motorcycles and bicycles are also nearby. If one walks for 25 minutes, one can reach the Laganas tourist resort which offers all sorts of activities like bowling, dancing, horse riding, shopping and much more.
