In one of the most beautiful spots in the Ionian, Peligoni is barefoot luxury for all the family. Beautiful villas, all individual in style, from traditionally Greek to sleek modern, are dotted in the hills around the bay, from where you can relax in total peace and quiet, or dip in and out of the activities on the beach. Water sports, biking, yoga, long lunches with friends, the club is a hub of conviviality and fun, whatever your age. Food is definitely a family affair, with menus for everyone, and in the evenings the long banquet tables buzz with chat and laughter.

The style and range of the private villas at the Peligoni Club are vast and we will happily talk through the options with you. From intimate suites for couples to sophisticated party villas for large families or groups of friends celebrating a landmark birthday, they come in all shapes and sizes, with private pools, fabulous al fresco dining areas, outside kitchen, manicured gardens, awesome views and some having private beach access. They are all designed and decorated beautifully and some are a short walk to the club and others a little drive away. Changeover days are usually Saturday or Sunday, and many of the villas have a daily or twice weekly cleaning service. Guests can self cater, eat at the club, or eat at one of the many and varied local restaurants. For a real treat, why not opt for the shopping or hamper service or, for a complete rest – villa hosting?
Dining at the Peligoni is all about fun. It’s a communal affair where the food suits everyone’s palate. Breakfast, lunch and dinner, along with snacks in between are all served at the club’s restaurant, all using fresh, seasonal produce – from locally inspired dishes to juicy burgers and crowd pleasing pizzas, with a healthy dose of super foods mixed in. Eat at long tables, making new friends or enjoying special times with your family. And look out for special celebrity chef events each Summer, where the restaurant is taken over for one night only. The island of Zakynthos is not short of great local restaurants for families looking to explore or venture slightly further afield.
The Peligoni strikes the perfect balance for active families. The childcare here always gets rave reviews, from its crèche to the brilliantly organised Sharky & George kids’ activity programmes, to the teen activities. Children can learn to sail or windsurf, have kayaking and paddle boarding tuition and will come away having made a lot of new friends and had a very active holiday.
The Peligoni is a membership club, so when you book a villa, you’ll also book membership that covers your entire stay. This gives you access to all the facilities and activities that the Peligoni has to offer and there’s no end of things to occupy the whole family for a week or more. The water sports here are excellent, with tuition for beginners and a whole host of equipment that the more experienced can use. There’s sailing, windsurfing, paddle boarding kayaking, and when the conditions are good, water skiing, wakeboarding and wakesurfing. There is also a speed boat that guests can hire. For people who prefer to stay dry, the club has tennis courts and coaching and bike hire with guided tours. And for those who can’t sit still for long, there are fitness classes and a gym. Alternatively, take advantage of some free time and just book into the Spa for a couple of treatments. There is always something going on, so be sure to keep an eye out for evening events too.
