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 family were very caring and we had really good service. Breakfast was good and we also enjoyed many nice meals at the Ampoula Beach Restaurant-the extra discount was very welcome. The apartments /villas are not a luxury standard but are very clean (cleaned daily) and comfortable. Would recommend anyone to stay there.

From beginning to end all correspondence was answered quickly. The villa has a great space for one large extended family or 2 families. There was everything we needed to make our stay a perfect holiday. The beach nearby for us was idyllic with the fabulous shoestring bar above to get some great food and amazing cocktails. The location was perfect for walking to Alakynas and Alykes and a short drive to Tsilivi. We love Keri so didnt mind the 45 minutes or so by car to get there. We will definitely book Villa Eleni again and are sure you wont be disappointed either.

There was plenty of room for all of us (7 adults) and the outdoor area was perfect for relaxing and cooling down in the pool. The owner was very timely in responding to questions and keen to make our stay perfect. Small issue with the wifi/tv but that maybe due to some unfortunate stormy weather we had as was fine the rest of the time. Overall we really enjoyed our stay and the villa met all of our requirements and more. I would definitely recommend this villa for a great self catering holiday experience.
