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.

The interior of the villa and the gardens have clearly had a lot of time and thought invested in them. Sharon provided good instructions so we had no problems finding the villa. It is secluded and the view from the balcony is amazing! We booked a stay for our family of four (2 kids under 5) with the expectation that we would use both Stavlo and Aeolus, due to there being only 2 beds within the villa. We knew that Stavlo was a self contained unit, separate to the main villa, however, I hadn't realised that it was actually outside the property walls. The pool was clean and a great size - we all loved using it, especially the children. We also enjoyed watching the birds come to drink from it. Due to the extensive gardens, there were plenty of flying insects, but we had expected that and they didn't bother us too much. The kids were really excited to see gecko's and other small lizards! The location was perfect for us - quiet and away from the hustle and bustle of the southern part of the island. We enjoyed a Blue Caves and Shipwreck boat tour, which can be caught relatively near by. There are also really useful guest books within the villa which are full of ideas for day trips/restaurant recommendations. There are also books and DVD's there to use. All in all, I would fully recommend the villa - if I ever returned to Zante then I wouldn't hesitate to book Aeolus again. Thanks for sharing your beautiful home with us! Best wishes Ruth

                                                                                        From the moment we drove up the drive and were greeted warmly by John and excitedly by Ellie the dog we know we were going to enjoy our stay at Olive Tree Cottage. John cooked us a delicious home cooked meal the 1st evening we were there of - Greek Salad, spicy meatball, taziki, sun ripened tomato bread, pitta bread and lemon cheesecake (just the start of wonderful tasting home cooked goodies from John over the next week). From the terrace outside the cottage you have a stunning view over the olive trees and out across Lagana Bay. The steps from the terrace lead down to the lawn under the shade of lemon and Olive trees with a table and chairs. Next to here is the pool with a covered area, sun terrace, hammock, sun beds and pool. If you are looking for a quiet typically Greek style holiday Olive Tree Cottage is for you, it's very relaxing. It is ideally suited to a couple. We very much appreciated John's "little parcels" of home made/home grown goods (marmalade, croissants, saganki cheese, fresh figs). John made us feel as if we really were home from home, he advised us of places to eat locally - we tried and recommend Zepos. The trunk on the terrace contains an array of games and books should you want to use them. Ellie the dog loves to have company and would come most morning and evening to make sure we were ok, which as animal lovers we enjoyed. The lane up to the cottage is quite uneven and the drive very steep so we would suggest that a jeep or vehicle of similar height would be best - we did however manage in our hired Skoda fabia but it wasn't easy. On our last evening John had a BBQ for two friends who had come over from UK to help John with some ground maintainenance and asked us tp join them - once again John's cooking was out of this world - homemade garlic bread, greek salad, tomatoes with melted feta and Olive Oil (John's own oil), beetroot and onion salad, Jacket potato, bbq'd marinated pancetta chops,, chicken drumsticks, fresh large prawn, vegetable kebabs, calamari, followed by bbq rum banana/pineapple. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, the only downside for us we only booked 7 days! If we could give 10 stars we would.

Dionisios and Petros were really helpful during our stay, meeting us at the airport and providing great tips on the best beaches and tavernas. The pool and decking were as stunning as they look on the photos, and caught the sun from sundown to dusk. Sheets and towels cleaned every day and one small issue with wi-fi access was quickly resolved. Psarou itself is very quiet. A small beach, one shop and three tavernas. Well located though between Shipwreck beach / Blue Caves and Xigia beaches to the North and Banana Beach / Turtle Beach to the South. Tsilivi, the nearest resort is about 20 mins away with bars, shops and water sports if needed. We had a great time exploring and coming back each day to our little oasis! Definitely recommend if looking for a quiet get away but you will need a car.
