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.

                                                              You could not find a more perfect retreat - perched above Kalamaki at the end of a secluded road with panoramic sea views on both sides, this delightful villa offers everything you could need and want on your holiday. 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.

                                                              This Place is a little piece of heaven, we came out for our sons wedding and we couldn't of hoped for a more perfect place to stay, It had everything we needed and more,Liss and Tassos were exceptional hosts and couldn't do enough for us, The villa is close to all the things you want on holiday i.e beaches,shops and really good restaurants and all were reasonably priced, Just to mention that we had no problems getting Food from stores or withdrawing cash from machines and paying for goods on our card, From what was being reported and shown in national news you would never know there was a crisis in Greece everything was normal and the people was really Friendly and helpful, back to the holiday we walked into Old part of Kalamaki and it was beautiful, we had a lovely meal there and done a bit of gift shopping, It also worth visiting Crystal Beach Bar, that had lovely views of the Ocean and the Bay. There are also some other lovely restaurants in the area, We hired a Quad bike for a few days so we could look further afield and visit our families who were also staying in the area, we also hired a speed boat and drove out to Turtle Island which is Amazing, while out at sea it was great to jump off and Swim in The beautiful Clear Blue Sea and do some snorkelling, It Has Been An Amazing Holiday in a very beautiful Place, Once again Liss and Tassos Thank you for sharing your Lovely Home with us and we would love to come back and see you again in the future XXX

                                                              Villa Alexia

                                                              I would like to thoroughly recommend this beautiful villa. If you are looking for a quiet base in a very picturesque location then this is ideal. Whilst you are a bit of a distance from Lagana and Kalmaki (approx. 25 minute walk to the main part of Lagana) you will appreciate this. We arrived before the season had really started which at first thought we thought would restrict us a bit. On the contrary. we had everything to ourselves, including the lovely beaches nearby. St Nicolas beach and Banana beach were only a short drive away and they were empty. The actual villa itself was immaculate. Clean, and well equipped with fantastic views of the olive groves and mountains in the distance. The pool was regularly cleaned and any problems were dealt with immediately.(not that there were many). A walk out of the villa turning left and left at the crossroad takes you up to the main road, approx 15 minutes. where you will find a well stocked supermarket with all you will need. They are lovely people working there offering fresh produce, home made red and white wine and olive oil at a ridiculously cheap price. Talk to them nicely and they will even deliver for you. I would definitely recommend that you hire a car whilst you are there. Opposite the supermarket is the Twins car rental. we hired a VW Up for about 40 euro a day with insurance. Turn right at the supermarket and walk about 10 mins and you will come to a lovely Greek restaurant. It is run by a lady called Nicky and her family and by the time you leave you will feel like family. Would I return? get me a flight now! Thanks to all involved in making our holiday so memorable. Tim & Teresa.
