A holiday on Zakynthos

The island of Zakynthos awaits. Located in the Ionian Sea, Zakynthos is an island rich in geological formations. Visit the stunning Navagio Beach, secluded and blocked off from the outside world, and only accessible by boat. Learn about the phenomenon that occurred here in 2006, an 'earthquake swarm' that shocked and baffled the Greek scientific community at the time. No matter what brings one to this charming Greek island, let HomeAway make finding the perfect villa on Zakynthos-Zante a quick and hassle-free process.

For couples and single families, HomeAway offers many different types of apartments on Zakynthos-Zante to best suit any group's needs. When planning a Greek holiday with extended family or just a large group of friends, HomeAway recommends choosing from one of over 80 Zakynthos-Zante villas. These properties come in a variety of sizes and with an array of available amenities, such as balconies, swimming pools, and full-size kitchens.

Things to do

Zakynthos:

The city of Zakynthos on the islands of the same name, is both the capital city of the island, and the largest city on Zakynthos-Zante. Visit the Bochali Hill, which overlooks the town and features a Venetian-style castle. Zakynthos enjoys a long tradition of music including serving as the historic hub of Greece's opera tradition.

Navagio Beach:

Zakynthos-Zante is home to some of the finest beaches and vantage points in all of Greece! Visit the stunning Navagio beach, with white sands and clear waters surrounded by dramatic cliffs. The beach is accessible only by boat, and is a popular site for base jumpers. See the shipwreck of a boat from 1983.

Zante currant:

Be sure to sample the mouth-watering Greek cuisine on your trip. The Zante currant is native to the island of Zakynthos-Zante. The island also produces grapes, citrus fruit, currants, and olive oil. These simple ingredients pop up in the cuisine of the island, and are best enjoyed in long, luxurious meals with loved ones.

Blue Sea Caves:

Visit each of the three locations of the Blue Sea Caves that surround Zante. The first is located east of Skinari on north of island, the second at Keri, and the third at Porto Vromi. Each of these caves is filled with clear, deep blue waters, and are collectively accessible by boat tour.

Laganas:

Visit the resort at Laganas. This white-sand beach is nine miles long and is extremely popular during the tourist season. The resort is the largest of its kind on the island, and is exclusively for those aged 18-30. A variety of cuisines and beaches are available at Laganas.

Marathonisi:

The tiny, uninhabited and privately owned island of Marathonisi is a popular day trip from the town of Keri. From afar, it looks like a turtle and is known thus as "Turtle Island." Sample the fennel which grows wild alongside the oak and pine trees.

Weather in Zakynthos-Zante

Temperatures in the summer reach 30°C, but the lack of humidity makes this temperature enjoyable. Milder temperatures in the winter never dip below 10°C. January and February are the rainy months on Zakynthos. The Etesian wind system (also called the Meltemi) can cause problems for sailors in open sea water, but is ideal for those pursuing various watersports, such as windsurfing.

Travel to Zakynthos-Zante

Travel to Zakynthos-Zante by plane, arriving at Zakynthos International Airport (ZTH). Flights arrive daily from both mainland Greece and other cities. Alternatively, both car-carrying ferries and catamarans traverse the Ionian Sea daily, and even more often in high tourist season. Sea taxis and boat rental are also available once on the island of Zakynthos. Several of the beaches are only accessible by boat.

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.

Just far enough from the Kalamaki strip it offers stunning views of the mountains, watching the sun set on the horizon was a special time for us all. Dionysis his family and friends are most help full, we felt we came as customers and left as special friends, speak to the owners of the jet oil garage they run the horse and cart trips and will take you into town if you ask. The property is well maintained, has a modern feel but keeps with Greek tradition, extremely relaxing, with everything required to make our holiday most memorable, we had many late mornings and even later nights. We hired quad bikes to get around during the day, on an evening we would flag down or order taxis, for a few euros we could travel all around kalamaki, try Georgias restaurant, Masa, Zeppos, and Heavens Kitchen, good food at very reasonable prices. For a chilaxing few drinks try the Oceanic Chill out bar, Mojitos, Cave Bar and after a hectic day of sun bathing try Crystal beach hotel bar. An evening trip into Zante town is a must, the harbor is a must see, please search out our very good friend Dimitris at his tavern, for the best moussaka on the island and Zoe at Georgias restaurant in old Kalamaki for every traditional Greek dish. For your weekly shop try lidl 15 mins away, we BBQ d one evening their fresh food is excellent, for day to day items the supermarkets in town are reasonable, the jet oil garage 2 mins away sells water, milk and bread. The villa has no pool which was not a problem for us (this keeps the price of hire down)as we prefer the beach, you may however use any of the hotel pools if you wish, the hotels are more than accommodating and welcome old customers as well as new. Try crystal beach, gerakas beach and if water sports interests you banana beach, transport is available to banana beach. Laganas is the island hot spot which is a short taxi ride away, the airport is 15 mins away, we always get a taxi too and from the airport which saves on transfer times. To conclude we have holiday`d in Kalamaki twice/year for the last four years and Villa Moreti is by far the best holiday to date. Many thanks Dionysis.
