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.

Alternatively, both car-carrying ferries and catamarans traverse the Ionian Sea daily, and even more often in high tourist season.

                                                                                        The owner - Sai - has three 2-bed villas on a large plot with really well kept gardens. He lives in one and the other two are for holiday rents sharing a good sized pool. The villas are well equipped, clean and spacious with air conditioning in the downstairs open-plan living area and each of the bedrooms with balconies on the top floor and shaded seating / eating areas at the front and back. There is a great stone barbecue area with separate fire pits for each villa which Sai keeps well stocked with wood and charcoal. In terms of location - it's a 25 minute walk from the coast but the beaches along there are a bit limited - for pure beach sunbathing / swimming then there are lots of options - we favoured Daphne beach and Banana beach about a 25 min drive away but we really liked the nearby Keri beach - a 5/10 min drive away - with good sea- view restaurants and a great place to hire a small motorboat to go exploring the coastline - including Keri caves. You have a good chance of seeing some turtles too. Sai is a really nice guy who couldn't do enough to make the holiday go well - he has lots of restaurant recommendations and encouraged us to pick ripe figs from the garden. Don't let the fact that Sai lives on the site put you off - he is careful not to intrude on your personal space or family time and was very patient with my children's incessant questions when looking after the pool etc. His communication was good throughout the booking process and in the run-up to the holiday & he has even posted us back a couple of things we failed to pack - sending us off with a large bottle of his home-made olive oil that he makes from the olive trees in the garden! If you're looking for a quiet relaxing spot to base yourself from I recommend this place - the family in the other villa were there for 3 weeks and that was their third time there - I guess you can't really get a better recommendation than that.

The apartment: Really good, clean, fantastic view from balcony and windows, all what is needed for a vacation is there where it’s possible both to sit inside and outside, calm place and beautiful garden where it’s possible to make a barbecue evening. Angella is so friendly, warm, welcoming and helpful. Just ask for where to go and where to eat. She knows it all. . Thanks, Angella for making our stay so great! The beach: Is nice, clean water, beautiful to watch the landscape swimming in the water. There are some rocks in the frontline, but they can be easily be stepped over and then there is nice sand. Swimming in the water it’s nearly like a swimming pool! The swimming pool nearby is also good. It’s free if you buy something there. Vasilikos Anu: Is such a nice place. People are so nice and welcoming. There are shops and restaurants nearby the apartment, so car isn’t needed, but nice to have to go other places. Try the turtle beaches Daphny beach and Gerikos. Try the restaurant Galini. Try to take a walk early morning and watch the rabbis running free in the streets. We definitely want to come back.

The location is beautiful in a traditional Zante village called Anafonatria. The villa and pool were immaculate and very well equipped. A car is essential to make the most of visiting the endless beautiful beaches on the island.
