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.

Lovely little villa set among the olive groves

5 of 5
Thoroughly enjoyed our ten days at Blue Mountains Villa - and to be honest we didn't do a great deal apart from relaaaax!!! Hired a little boat in Keri (60 euros for 4 hours) to see caves and turtle island - there's lots of places hiring boats but the last café on the front opposite the harbour were great - friendly, family run, very nice food too!! We had a few forays into Zante town (can be busy during the week - but evenings and weekends much more relaxed) parking was very easy on seafront and it's a small town so very easy to drive around. Apart from that we just took it easy. In the past we've always stayed at villas with a pool - but, especially at this time of year, they're too cold anyway so you tend to just sit around them - so the jacuzzi was the best thing - didn't miss a pool at all. Villa itself is lovely and has got everything you need - felt right at home as soon as we arrived - loved it!

Lovely quiet cottage in good location

5 of 5
Sandra and Dave are lovely people and made us very welcome. Dave even met me at the airport and explained how everything worked at the cottage. The interior of the cottage was immaculate and spotless and we loved it. There is an elevated circular swimming pool in the rear garden which was extremely clean and well maintained. It was a welcome relief to take a cooling dip from the hot Greek sun. There is a very pleasant panoramic view of the mountains when sitting outside on the verandah and the whole atmosphere is one of tranquility and beauty.
