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.

                                                                                                    Just arrived home from a superb 2 week break with our friends. We were four adults and 6 children (16, 14, 14, 12, 12 and 10 years old) We had a wonderful warm welcome from Sofia with grocery shopping, a large drink and Spag Bol provided! The villa was immaculate, beautifully presented and well stocked for all our catering and holiday needs. Two of the bedrooms are on the ground floor with separate entrances (and keys) to the main house, which makes them less suitable for younger children (the 12 year olds were happy, but our 10 year old wanted to stay in the main house). The villa is in a fabulous location at the quieter (non-tourist/package holiday) end of the island. It is in an elevated position so benefits from a continuous refreshing breeze, especially welcome in the heat of the day. A car is essential for basic shopping and to explore the island and although the nearest beaches (which are often empty, with crystal clear waters, gentle waves and rocks for snorkelling or diving off) are within walking distance it's a steep walk back to the villa! Sofia couldn't have been more helpful, sorting out sea trips for us (with the fabulous Captain Spiros....not to be missed!) recommending local restaurants that used locally sourced and not frozen ingredients (don't miss the Old Windmill in Askos, or Nobelos down in the port - need to book in advance), and always going the extra mile to sort out any problems or questions we had, nothing was too much trouble, allowing us to completely relax and really making the visit extra special and memorable. Zakynthos was a really relaxing destination, stunning beaches and beautiful scenery. The children (and adults) enjoyed two days at the Zante Water Village whilst the adults took turns for time out to explore the island. All-in-all, a fabulous holiday which we will all look back on with very fond memories.

It was set in lovely quiet surroundings and a small pebble beach/cove was nearby - perfect for swimming and never crowded. The accommodation provided everything we needed and was very clean and comfortable, with very friendly and helpful staff. On arrival we received a generous welcome pack of local food. There was a mini-mart shop in walking distance and restaurant where we had a very good meal. The north end of Zakynthos is much quieter than the south and we enjoyed exploring the villages on windy roads. Thank you to everyone at Strofilia.
