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.

Outstanding villa

5 of 5
We arrived to an extremely clean and well appointed villa with many little extras put ready for our use, which if we had known about would have lightened our luggage load considerably! The owners/manager were open to any questions we had and resolved any issues promptly. This is an ideal place for families with young children, as the grounds are entirely enclosed and the children are free to play in a great open area. As our holiday was late in October the pool was very cold (in fact the sea was warmer), so perhaps a pool heater could be installed to allow all year round use. Use of a car is recommended as the villa is in a quiet area and there are no shops/tavernas within easy walking distance. We will definitely consider using this villa again.

Beautiful Villa in Ideal Location

5 of 5
I visited Zante with a group of friends for a hen weekend and the villa itself is beautiful and clean. The 3 bedooms were made up to a lovely standard and the beds were very comfortable. The bathrooms were both great sizes, one with a bath/shower and the other with just a shower. Only downside being you have to hold the shower heads whilst showering as one has no wall attachment and the other falls off the wall when turned on. Perhaps the owner could look into fixing these as a quick task that would make a big difference? The kitchen was well equipped with all appliances, plates, cutlery, glasses and even a dishwasher. The outside seating areas and pool were lovely. Plenty of seating with 2 outdoor tables, general seating areas and pool loungers. You are not overlooked and have plenty of privacy. Location wise, the airport is only a 10min drive away and all taxi drivers know the villa, so getting to/from the airport is no problem if you have hired a car. Laganas where all the bars and restaurants are is only a 5min taxi journey and only costs about €10. Roula/Zoe were both very friendly and helpful with recommendations and organising things for us to do. Roula even took us to do a quick food shop when we first arrived in the evening, which was very kind of her. Our only negative was the neighbours' dogs who gave us a sleepless night on our first night, but that cannot be helped. Dogs will bark if left out at night. The other 2 nights were a lot quieter and we all slept fine. Overall we had a lovely stay and I would definitely return to stay here again :) Thank you again Zoe and Roula x
