the owners of Villa Spiro are very helpful , they treated us like family. The standard of accommodation is OK.Food was very good.The ceramics teacher was good and her worship among the olive groves is inspirational. The only downside is that the resort of Lagunas is rather tacky.

Really enjoyed our ceramics experience. Setting was beautiful, tutor fun and friendly. Our host family who looked after us for the whole holiday could not have made us more welcome and made sure we had a great time.

Effie, Antonio and Denia made me feel welcome from the moment I arrived. The family were so hospitable and helped us with planning our downtime as much as they did the classes. As a group we visited parts of the island we wouldn’t have otherwise seen and met some great people. The ceramics experience was first-rate, and as very much a beginner, learning a lot about ceramics in a beautiful outdoor studio (and drinking homemade lemonade!) was ideal.

I had a great holiday in Zakynthos. Antonio and Effie couldn't have been more welcoming, and went out of their way to make me feel at home. Ceramics was v relaxing and the results are great. Zakynthos was all I expected - lovely Greek tavernas, beautiful sea, blue sky every day and I had time to relax as well.

I was very well taken care of by my hosts, Effie and Anthony. Sitting in the beautiful outdoor studio working with the clay, drinking homemade lemonade proved to be super relaxing. Greek dancing in Effie's cousin's picturesque Taverna was a highlight. "Opa!" means "Jump for joy", which we did!

This holiday is all about people and the lovely memories that you take home with you! The team and other guests were very nice people. In order to avoid any disappointment of expectations what is advertised should be a bit reviewed like the bathroom, which was not modern.

I was welcomed into the family in Zakynthos. I was taken to places the tourist does not usually see, I spent time with Greek people and consumed virtually every Greek dish! The ceramics experience was first rate and I came home with pottery which will always remind me of this wonderful holiday.

slightly short changed that there was not more ceramics - my stay coincided with Easter so the teacher was busy. My host was likewise busy when I arrived so I was on my own for the first few days. If I’d known I’d have hired a car and explored the island. Which I did for the last 3 days - wonderful

Reply from Supplier: Thank you for your feedback and we're delighted to hear how much you enjoyed the island. Sorry if you felt you were alone for the first few days - we wanted to give you some space as you were writing your assignment before the programme started. There must have been a misunderstanding about the extra ceramic lessons as more lessons would have been available. However, we're glad you got to experience the Easter ceremony and family dinners with us instead and your tour of the island by car. We had a really fun group that week and glad you were part of it. - Denia and family
