Make a holiday villa in Kalamaki your home away from home

Zakynthos, or Zante, as the Venetians knew it, is an amazing Ionian island that has been inhabited from the Neolithic Age. The island was fought over and conquered by a number of kingdoms including the Ottoman Turks and the Venetians. More recently it was dominated by the French and the British. All these reigns had an influence on the island’s architecture and culture as visitors will find out. While based in Kalamaki holiday homes visitors can explore the rich heritage of Zakynthos as well as marvel at the beauty of its coastline. Kalamaki is situated next to sublime stretch of protected beach where holidaymakers can enjoy the glorious weather. The holiday villas in Kalamaki offered by HomeAway are a few metres from the beach and command breathtaking sea views. They also come with features such as swimming pools and barbecues.

Things to do

-Beaches: Right in Kalamaki is one of the most popular beaches in Zakynthos. This slice of coastline stretches for six kilometres and provides a beautiful sense of serenity for visitors who go during the off-peak. It is a protected area and visitors may get to spot the odd turtle waddling through the sand. There are smaller picturesque beaches which, while not the best for basking, provide some stunning scenery. Navagio is cut off from the rest of the coastline by walls of sheer rock and has an iconic shipwreck stuck in its sands.

-Outdoor activity: With the abundance of daytime entertainment venues here, there will rarely be a dull moment for tourists in Kalamaki holiday rentals. The Fantasy Mini Golf in Tsilivi promises a day of fun for travelling couples or the holidaying family. There they’ll find a miniature 18-hole course where they will pass hours without knowing. The kids will forever be grateful after taking them to the Tsilivi Water Park and letting them scream themselves hoarse while gliding down water slides. Go-kart facilities are also available.

-Hiking: Upon venturing inland, visitors will discover that Zakynthos is blessed with gorgeous green landscapes. This is thanks to the abundant rains that shower this island every year. There is a trail that starts from the picturesque Gerakas Bay and leads up into verdant hills. At Alikanas there are stables from which horses can be procured for horseback rides through vineyards and olive groves and quiet villages.

-Museums: Zakynthos is dotted with lovely Greek Orthodox churches such as the Agios Dionisios which is actually an ecclesiastical museum situated in the town centre. Here visitors will find icons from the Monastery of Strofades and participate in the church services as it is still a functioning sanctuary. Another museum those staying in Kalamaki holiday homes will be interested in visiting is the Aristeon Olive Press and Museum where they can learn the A to Z of the pressing process as well as come away with some oil to use at home.

Weather in Kalamaki

A few weeks after spring arrives temperatures in Kalamaki rise into the twenties and visitors wishing to take advantage of off-peak prices and the less crowded beaches can book their Kalamaki holiday homes for May. The weather steadily gets warmer as summer approaches and by the time it’s July average highs are at 31°C. Rainfall, by contrast, becomes more and more scarce. But it begins pouring again in September. Autumn visitors should therefore prepare for possible showers, despite the still warm temperatures. The rains increase until December as the temperatures plummet to the teens to usher in winter.

Travel to Kalamaki

With this locale being only 2 miles from the Zakinthos International Airport, visitors will have no problem getting to their Kalamaki holiday villas and apartments upon arrival. Seasonal flights and charters to this airport are available from most European cities on a number of commercial airlines and low-cost carriers. While taxis are available from the terminal, the €12 they charge for a journey of a few minutes may be deemed exorbitant. Some find it more pennywise to hire a car they can use for the duration of their stay.

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!
