The Villa where Anthony Quinn (Alexis Zorbas) danced the famous “syrtaki”
The first sight upon entering this villa is the breathtaking view across the infinity pool into Stavros sea and mountain, famous from the 1964 Oscar nominated film “Zorbas the Greek” with Anthony Quinn. Our villa is the house where Anthony Quinn (Alexis Zorbas) lived in and the beach in front of the villa is the beach where he danced the famous “syrtaki”.
The villa features a infinity edge swimming pool and sunbathing terrace with luxurious high quality sun loungers and umbrellas. Sometimes, especially in the evening is very difficult to distinguish the pool water from the water of the sea… The outdoor seating area, complete with pizza oven, BBQ, bar and lounge area, provides guests with ample space to enjoy outdoor living at its very finest, both day and night, with glamorous lighting illuminating the terraces once evening sets. Surrounded by a luxuriant Mediterranean garden and stoned terraces, its gates will lead you directly into the limpid, translucent waters of Stavro's sea... unless, of course, you prefer the infinity pool and its hydromassage corner!
The patio, filled with climbing plants and geraniums is the perfect place to enjoy breakfasts and lunches on the shaded terrace where the island’s brisk breezes the cool area.
An ideal place for our little ones also where they can enjoy themselves on the playground and the basketball court.
Every year we are trying to improve your staying and we are updating our facilities.
We added a luxurious swing chair with stand and a very comfortable huge chair...It s difficult to describe it, it s better to seat on it.
We also provide a professional ping pong table and a new football table with telescoping steel rods and steel ball bearings.
