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.

                                                    Beautiful house, nice location and a lovely island. Our stay on Zakynthos was a really a nice one. Sai is a very friendly host and knows a lot about the island. Where to find good Greek food and peaceful beaches. The household inventory is very complete. Not having to bring towels along with on us the plane, made it possible to travel light. One week was not enough to see everything on this beautiful island. Not so bad, it gives us a good reason to come back to Sai's stunning place.

                                                    A quiet oasis for everyone who wants to relax and/or explore beautiful Zante. The flats are stylishly decorated and have stunning views of the bay. Several rock or pebble beaches are only a few minutes' walk away and offer easy access to the crystal-clear sea. Two tavernas are within walking-distance, more can be found in the village of Limni Keri, about 1.5 kms away. The owners are very friendly and helpful! I'd recommend this beautiful spot to anyone.

                                                    Beautiful Villa!!

                                                    5 of 5
                                                    We had a marvellous 10 days at Aeolus / Stalevo in August. The villa is very clean and has a homely feel to it, not the sterility often seen in rental villas. The view over the coast (particularly with a glass of wine in hand) from the balcony off main bedroom is stunning! The pool is spotlessly clean and ideal for children of all ages. Our children (3 of the 4 are teenagers) absolutely loved the independence of having Stavelo to themselves. Also, the baker comes to the bottom of the road at 8am on weekdays - wow, the doughnuts are gorgeous! Regarding things to do - a boat trip to Shipwreck is a must. We hired our own 6 berth boat from Wayne at http://www.valaiswatersports.gr/en-boathire.php Much cheaper than competitors and very efficient service. Also, a drive out to Shipwreck view ( achieving the 'brochure' view) at sunset is breathtaking - our children were amazed. Local food is generally good and fairly cheap - we found Niko's the best by far, as the menu was also geared up to suit to teenagers. Also, I'd recommend a visit to the Art Cafe, a local bar with a bohemian feel to it. One thing parents with teenagers may want to note - many local restaurants/bars advertise themselves as an 'internet hotspot'. On the whole, they aren't....the signal/speed is appalling. Only a minor gripe, but anyone with teenagers will know where I'm coming from...... In a nutshell, I think anyone who can't enjoy the facilities on offer and relax amongst the gorgeous gardens at Aeolus, perhaps whilst reading in the hammock, would find it difficult to wind-down anywhere on the planet!
