Make a holiday villa in Vassilikos your home away from home

Vassilikos, a village found in the south-eastern reaches of the Ionian island of Zakynthos, is loved by holidaymakers thanks to the fact that it boasts some of the island’s best views. It also is endowed with some spectacular beaches which are more peaceful and arguably more picturesque than the other Zakynthos beaches. This is why holiday homes in Vassilikos are the automatic choice for most visitors to this part of Greece. Besides the stunning white-sanded beaches, Vassilikos offers convenience in the form of nearby shopping outlets and entertainment in lively local bars where traditional Greek music is played and danced to. Holidaymakers residing in Vassilikos holiday rentals won’t struggle to find places to eat; they’re numerous tavernas here. HomeAway presents tourists with a good selection of holiday villas and apartments in Vassilikos. These are situated in quiet, green areas commanding incredible sea views.

Things to do

-Beaches: Vassilikos has its own beach, which a number of tourists have rated as the best in Zakynthos. It is carpeted in soft white sands and is one of the more quiet places on the Zakynthian coastine. Those looking to enjoy the 30 plus degree sunshine will find sunbeds there on which they can bask hours away. Not far is the Banana Beach whose waters are ideal for swimming; safe for even the kids to take a dip. It is quite a busy beach though, dotted with tavernas, bars and ice-cream vendors.

-Water sports: A coastal holiday cannot be complete without a bit of water sport and at the Banana Beach visitors will find all they need for surfing including delicious winds. They will also find diving centres where they can get gear and instruction for scuba diving expeditions. Though the marine life is nothing to write home about, sites such as the Keri Caves and The Arch offer a thrilling experience. The extreme sport of base jumping has also found a home in Zakynthos and so the more daring can find an outlet for their adrenaline with a jump.

-Natural beauty: As they hike through the lush green countryside of Zakynthos holidaymakers will discover why the Italians called the island ‘Il Fiore del Levante’. In spring the landscape comes alive with colour as a rich variety of flowers blossoms. Visitors will want to leave the comfort of their Vassilikos holiday homes to explore the feature-laden Zakynthos coastline. Along the way they will find the awe-inspiring Blue Caves and the isolated Navagio Beach which hosts a captivating shipwreck.

-Food and drink: There are a number of mostly family-run tavernas that adorn the Ionian shores and those staying in Vassilikos holiday rentals will rarely feel the need to cook. At the Kostas Brothers tavern they will be served traditional Greek specialities at very reasonable prices. The setting is very relaxing as the restaurant is surrounded by nice gardens and the owner livens it up by belting out Greek ditties. On Gerakas Beach is Nikos Taverna where mouth-watering grilled meat is served at interesting prices.

Weather in Vassilikos

Those booking a summer holiday in Vassilikos should prepare to contend with temperatures averaging 31°C. Typical summer weather here is hot and dry apart from sunbathing and water sports, visitors will not want to do much. For better conditions for outdoor activity, visitors might want to consider booking their Vassilikos holiday homes for May or September when temperatures average between 24 and 27°C. Coming to Greece at this time will also see tourists take advantage of off-peak rates as airlines and restaurants struggle to attract the few clients available. October, barring the occasional rainfall, is also not a bad time to visit.

Travel to Vassilikos

Vassilikos is easily reached by travellers arriving at the Zakynthos International Airport as it is just 6 miles away. Tourists from most any European city should be able to get a direct flight aboard a low-cost airline to this airport between April and October. To get to their Vassilikos holiday homes visitors can either take a taxi or use a shuttle to get to the Zakynthos town centre and get a bus from there. bus service is regular and much cheaper than a taxi.

Everything about our stay was perfect. Lis and Tassos have furnished this little piece of paradise to perfection and were the perfect hosts. After two weeks we were still finding small idiosyncratic bits and pieces hidden in the garden or inside the apartment - much of which were made by Tassos. The beach was a mere stone's throw from us, and Kalamaki had everything you could possibly want for - not overly touristy but with plenty to do if you wanted it. The restaurants and bars were all very good quality and value - the local Zakynthian wine was great and ridiculously cheap. Our favourite restaurants were Zepo's which was just round the corner with swallows nesting in the eaves above our table, and Essence (a little pricier but well worth it). The Cave bar is not to be missed at sunset (or any time) as is Mojito's in the centre of the town. We hired a car for four days and discovered a number beautiful places across the island. In short, this is a special place to stay and we can't recommend it enough and can't wait to return.

The villa is spacious, very comfortable, completely private and just as described. The setting is breathtakingly beautiful with stunning views on all sides. The interior living space is great and lined with a terrific library of books - however, our weather was wonderful so all our time was spent outside where we made very good use of the fantastic huge pool. Good base from which to visit Zakynthos Town and explore the beautiful island (if you can manage to drag yourselves away from the Villa) and we were particularly delighted to find some excellent wine tastings - most enjoyable Grampsas and Art & Wine. Who knew Zakynthos had such splendid wine! We were given such a warm welcome by Spiro and his lovely family who guided us to the house and look after the property. They so generously gave us produce from Maria's garden - what a treat! Spiro is on hand if you need him but totally unobtrusive. John is a great communicator and very helpful during the easy booking process. I would not hesitate to recommend this villa to anyone and, if we return to Zakynthos in the future, we would definitely choose to stay in Villa Elia again.
