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.

The owner ,Katerina, couldn't be more helpful ,both leading up to , and during our visit. The pool is bigger than most hotels pools and the surroundings was to die for, views of fields or hills on every side. We walked to a couple of coffee shops,small supermarkets and excellent restaurants convenient to the villa. However, a car is an absolute advantage if you wish to explore the many beautiful beaches, landmarks and variety of restaurants the area has to offer This is undoubtedly a villa you would like to live in, and definitely one you would wish to return to.

                                                                                                      5 of 5

The 25 other reviews of this unique retreat say it all--charming, lovely, clean, spacious, large open plan sitting/dining area looking out on courtyard dotted with all kinds of plants in pots and beyond that the open plan, covered kitchen with everything you need. We found the fridge stocked with some lovely Greek goodies to start us off. With the supermarket just a stone's throw away it was really easy to pop in to stock up supplies. Zakanthi (now no longer run by Tassos and Liz) and Essence were our two favourite restaurants, all within walking distance. In fact, everything is in walking distance! However, we did hire a jeep to drive around the island and discovered stunning views and beautiful olive orchards. The Vasilikos area has nice beaches and Keri and Marathia are sweet little places to visit (and eat). Liz and Tassos were lovely, friendly hosts and nothing was too much trouble. Thank you Liz for picking us up and dropping us off at the airport and for all your help in making this a very memorable, wonderful holiday for us. We do hope to come back one day for a longer stay as your studio has been an exceptionally special place for us to stay. We would definitely recommend this little gem to anyone looking for something unique, charming, with a real soul. Suzette and Alex Hawkins from Devon

The pool is particularly welcome, beautifully clean and so inviting, the perfect way to cool off in 30+ degrees! The kitchen is very well equipped for eating in if you don't want to venture out to any of the numerous, reasonable, scrumptious tavernas. Apart from relaxing by the pool, the villa also has strategically positioned seating spots for making the most of the views, shady reading or enjoying a chilled glass of wine watching the sun go down. Thanks to John (the owner) for helping to make our stay so successful, you can tell he loves his villa & that's why it feels so homely, he's such a sweetie! You will definitely need to hire a car to access the villa but this will also enable you to explore this beautiful island.
