The fist time I came in Zakynthos I fall in love with her beauty. My name is Hara, I was born in Athens I grew up there and I finished Political studies in Law School of the University in Greece. I got married with Dionysis and we have three lovely children Stefanos , Sissy and Apostolis. We all love the island. My husband works in Telecomunication of Greece and we all the family do our best to make your holidays relaxing friendly and wonderful.
