Make a holiday villa in Agios Nikolaos your home away from home

Agios Nikolaos is one of the settlements on the Ionian island of Zakynthos a few kilometres south of the town centre. This is where the ferry to Kefalonia docks. It is situated strategically next to some important attractions such as the Blue Caves and is considered a great base from which to explore the many interesting sites on the island. Zakynthos is not only riddled with fabulous beaches, it is blessed with rich biodiversity and some mountains. Holiday homes in Agios Nikolaos come in different flavours and tourist groups of all sizes; whether travelling as a couple or as a family, can find accommodation here that is suitable for them. HomeAway offers holidaymakers a selection of luxurious villas with easy access to the sea and magnificent views. Some among these Agios Nikolaos holiday villas have cleverly designed private pools. Also available are cottages and apartments.

Things to do

-Food culture: The Greek have fine cuisine which they are proud to share with visitors. A trip to local tavernas will not just save tourists residing in self-catering Agios Nikolaos holiday homes the trouble of cooking, they will introduce them to a whole new dining experience. The atmosphere in most of these family-run restaurants is friendly and warm with the owners many times going round to interact with patrons. The food, especially the popular ‘kleftiko’, will leave a lasting impression on the taste buds as well.

-Nightlife: Zakynthos is also a place where one can catch a quiet drink or party into the wee hours. There is an endless selection of lounges and bars where one can gulp down innovative cocktails shaken together by seasoned mixologists. The Drunk Moon Bar is particularly renowned for its bartender who can mix you up anything you want. Other places worth trying in this regard are the Zeus Bar and the Portofino Cocktail Bar. For an atmosphere resounding with live music, the aptly named Revelry is the place to be.

-Boat trips: One of the activities visitors booking Agios Nikolaos holiday villas or cottages look forward to is exploring the Zakynthos coastline on exciting boat trips organised by different firms. Visitors will stop at such interesting geological features as the Blue Caves; rugged arches at the bases of cliffs carved out over time by the sea waters. The colour of the waters here, especially in the mid-morning light, is a striking blue. Lucky holidaymakers will land a good captain who will liven up the expedition while providing important information.

-Beaches: This part of Greece offers a variety of beaches where holidaymakers can enjoy the abundant sunshine and the sweet breeze sweeping in from the Ionian. Agios Nikolaos Beach is said to be one of the island’s finest beaches. This particular beach is found towards the south and is not the same as the village by the same name. Those into water sports will find what they’re looking for here be it scuba diving or jet skis. To view the rare spectacle of Loggerhead Turtles, visitors will want to put a trip to Gerakas in their itinerary. It is protected as a turtle nesting area.

Weather in Agios Nikolaos

With the delightful weather it enjoys for half the year, Zakynthos receives holidaymakers all the way from May to October. In May temperature averages are measured at 23°C and these continue to rise as we head into June. The months between June and September is when the bulk of Zakynthos’ visitors arrive as flights are more readily available and the climate conducive to the acquisition of beautiful tans (temperatures regularly climb above 30°C, especially in August). There is also little threat of rain or cloudy conditions. Arriving in September or October may expose one to this risk as this is when the rains start. Rain starts to fall in earnest from November and continues till the end of the year.

Travel to Agios Nikolaos

The Zakynthos International Airport is the facility most visitors to this Ionian island will use. Though arrival in the Cephalonia International Airport and a ferry trip straight to Agios Nikolaos is also an option. And so is a plane trip to Athens and a shorter one to the Zakynthos Airport on a domestic flight. Travel options from the airport are limited to airport taxis and the more pocket-friendly shared minibuses.

Outstanding Orfeas!!!!

5 of 5
We stayed for 2 weeks from the end of July and had our best holiday yet. Me, my husband and our 3 teenage daughters (aged 13, 17, 18) were looking for a relaxing holiday near the sea in a peaceful location. I came across Orfeas Villa and fell in love with it from the pictures. My instincts were right. This is an exceptional villa which is superbly located overlooking olive groves and the beautiful bay with Kefalonia in the distance. The balconies give stunning 180-degree panoramic views which were captivating at any time of the day but especially at sunset. The villa was spotlessly clean and is very well-equipped with everything you might need and more. It was really useful that all cleaning products such as dishwasher tablets, washing up liquid, hand wash and toilet roll were provided. We loved the open plan layout downstairs which kept cool during the heat of the day thanks to its thick stone walls. Upstairs, the accommodation suited our family of 5 perfectly though there were arguments over who got the bedroom with its own balcony! The whole villa is very tastefully decorated with pictures and ornaments which gives it an authentic Greek feel. The air con in the bedrooms is excellent and was useful on hot nights and the fast Wi-Fi kept everyone happy. Outside, the planting in the garden is really lovely and well laid out to give privacy when on the ground floor balcony. We spent most of our days relaxing in the villa and visiting the very pretty, sandy Psarou beach which is an easy 5 min walk down the hill. Although this is only a small beach it was never too crowded, and we spent many happy hours here. You can snorkel and see plenty of fish in the rocky areas at the sides, and we were lucky enough to see a turtle several times by going out early and swimming out to the sea grass. The two tavernas nearby are both excellent and you can pick up most things that you need at the little shop halfway to the beach including fresh bread, ice creams and beach stuff. We also rented a car for a few days and can thoroughly recommend Porto Limnionas. However, what really made this villa stand out for us was the exceptional hospitality shown by the owners, Fani and Loukas, who live on the basement floor. They were always available to help us and yet were very discreet. Their kindness and generosity embodied the Greek concept of ‘Xenia’ and helped us make so many special memories. We will never forget our idyllic stay at Orfeas Villa...

4 of 5
We stayed in one of the 6 studio's made for 3 persons each, with seaview. This place was nice, good condition and very clean. The cleaning lady gave us a proper room and bathroom with clean towels every day and every 3 days clean bedsheets. She even did the dishwashing. On the other side of the road, less than 30 meters walk, we enjoyed the swimmingpool and the restaurant. The food and drinks were good and served by this kind girl Angela en the owner Dionisis himself. A supermarket was nearby even as three other restaurants (500-1000m) in Psarou and Amoudi. You will also find the beach overthere. To get a good impression of the island I would recommend to rent a car. (Taking a bus is allmost not possible) Dionisis will help you with it and will also show you this tourist hot spots. With this car we were able to visit e.g. the (harbour for) the shipwreck, blue caves, turtle beach, Laganas, Agassi, Banana beach, the capital city Zante etc. In short: we really had a pleasant stay and I wish everyone a same one. I want to thank Dionisis and his kind employees for that. Grtz, Marjan (24-7 tm 6-8-2018)
