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.

The very comfortable apartment is immaculately clean, very well equipped, with lots of little extras such as oil, vinegar, loo roll etc..little touches that will save you the usual early rush to the nearest shop! A few steps lead down from your terrace, through a grape laden pergola, towards the private pebbled beach and crystal waters ( beach shoes would be advisable ). We were very happy to find a selection of inflatable boats, rings etc. available to the guests. The charming owners were extremely helpful and welcoming and made us very quickly feel at home. This is a very special place with very special people and we fully intend to return.
