Make a holiday villa in Volimes your home away from home

Volimes is part of Zakynthos, the third largest of Greece’s Ionian Sea islands. This is a burgeoning tourist magnet in its own right, providing the young, the old and those out in Greece on a family holiday with something to remember. Its mix of villages offers rugged, mountainous landscapes to the avid hiker, pebble beaches to the sun-worshipper and late night bars and clubs to the night owls. Volimes is situated to the north of Zante (the Italian name of Zakynthos) and is composed of three small villages. Holiday homes in Volimes range from tastefully refurbished 18th century mansions to luxurious villas that command incredible views over the Ionian and Kephalonia. A number of these rentals come with private pools and other great features such as barbecue facilities and satellite/cable TV. Most Volimes holiday homes are set in lush gardens and promise utter relaxation.

Things to do

-Beaches: Zakynthos offers beaches aplenty to the solar-hungry sunbathers. For those seeking a sandy beach that is relatively isolated, Dafni Beach is the place to be. It provides tourists with a quiet place to relax and there are a few taverns where visitors can grab a bite as well as get a sunbed. Also vast and sandy is the Gerakas Beach which is a nesting ground for turtles. Visitors can plop a parasol there and while the hours away on a lounger.

-Water sports: Those with energy to burn can spend it whizzing about the coast in jet skis or with windswept surfing sessions. They can also explore the mysteries underneath the surface of the Ionian in scuba diving excursions. The more daring can try base jumping at Navagio Beach. And after hours of adrenaline-sapping activity, holidaymakers can retreat to beachside bars where they can cool off with a frigid beer or cocktail.

-Boat trips: An excursion by boat to explore the Keri Caves is one of the most anticipated attractions of this island. With glowing turquoise waters seeping into their mouths, these geological wonders leave an impression on anyone who visits. Boats are available at the Zante port.

-Other activities: There is a miniature golf course in Argassi that promises plenty of fun for the entire family. It is immensely entertaining and only costs 5 Euros per person. For the kids a trip to the Tsilivi Water Park should be made a part of the itinerary for those planning a stay in Volimes holiday villas. This is a relatively new park and has an exciting range of water slides that will have kids screaming the entire afternoon.

-Food and drink: As one would expect, there are a number of decent eateries where those occupying Volimes holiday rentals can indulge in Greek cuisine. The tried and tested among these include the Mermaid and The Clear Horizon which are renowned for offering diners scrumptious fare in impressive portions at surprisingly reasonable prices. Before they leave Zante visitors must try the fresh fish cooked at The Squid and Octopus.

The view from the Terrace and the two main bedrooms and kitchen is simply stunning. It has been beautifully decorated and furnished and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it . Very well equipped and is a short drive to many beaches and fab restaurants.

We loved the infinity pool and being able to relax on the patio areas around the villa. The villa and gardens have been finished to a very high standard - the owners had thought of everything to make this an ideal holiday spot.

                                                                                                      5 of 5

The 6 of us enjoyed every day in kefalonia, wether we were out exploring the island or simply relaxing by the pool this property allowed us the holiday we wished for. It is located about 20 minutes from Agolstoli and around 40 minutes from Skala therefore offering a good central location for getting around the island. Wendy and Dave met us at the airport helped us to the villa and aided us with any queries, although there really wasn't much required as far as help goes as the information pack provided to us gave us everything we needed to know about the property, local amenities and even as far as the local Greek culture. We will be booking our next holiday here without any doubt as 1 weeks is nowhere near enough time to see everything this island has to offer.
