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.

Car hire is a must as the villas location is in a quiet road away from the main tourist areas. The wasps are a nuisance but unavoidable as they are all over the island. Restaurants offer burning coffee pots to help out at meal times. Yes there are cats but every Greek island we have visited are the same, not a problem. The only negative is the outside cushions are in a poor state and there are areas in the villa that could do with a little tlc all of which have been mentioned in the guest book and on review sites. On the whole a lovely little villa relaxing and peaceful. Thanks for sharing your holiday home.

The views every morning were stunning, village sweet and has everything you need whether you want to eat out or cook at the villa. Amanda visiting the first full day was nice and it was good to have some extra information if we wanted to explore which was our intention but with only a weeks holiday we ended up chilling to the max and having to force ourselves to venture out. The outside kitchen and dining/seating area was a big pull for us when we viewed all villas we liked, this one was great! We would recommend a jeep like car to manage the long rocky track as every time we took our hire car out we winced when we heard a noise in case of sudden damage from rocks to the underside! We did get woken at 7am Sunday morning by a bulldozer close and clearly another villa is going to be built soon so I would consider that build noise if we wanted to book the villa again in 2018. Having all towels and good bed linen provided and changed during our stay was excellent, the robes came in handy after we had jumped into the pool a couple of times- October isn't the best season for unheated pool dipping unless you are very young and don't feel the cold but it was fun nonetheless! Superb laundry area in the cellar which was a reminder that you don't need to pack so much when facilities like this are at your fingertips. A wonderful villa and situated in a fabulous position, we wouldn't hesitate to recommend either of the villas to others. Kefalonia is beautiful and I know we will be back to the island for sure - especially as we didn't visit the caves or get to hire a local boat etc. Do pack good quality mosquito repellent and if you can citronella tea lights as you may not see the blighters but you feel their bites later on! We did buy and leave a fly swat too for persistent wasps but it's just as we have experienced in other Mediterranean countries. Go, enjoy, you won't be disappointed!
