Kallisti Private home is near the Byzantine Church of St Nikolas which is situated in the village of Ano Gerakari.
This location has a fantastic view which spreads to the surrounding hills and the plain as far as the castle of Zakynthos.
The sleepy village of Ano Gerakari is still mostly untouched by tourism and is easily reached from the resorts of Alykes, Alikanas and Tsilivi.
The village is set amongst olive trees and farmland producing a variety of fruits and vegetables to the surrounding areas; whilst on the outskirts of the village, Ano Gerakari backs onto the beautiful, sparkeling crystal clear waters of the Ionian Sea. Nightlife in Ano Gerakari is simple, traditional and informal. If you do want to spend the evening somewhere a bit more lively then the resort of Alykes isn’t too far.
Combining a quiet beach with a rustic old quarter, holidays to Alykanas put old-school Zante firmly in your grasp.
In Alykon Bay, on Zante’s north coast, Alykanas is a small beach resort where the pace of life is as easy-going as the horse-drawn carriages that clip-clop through its streets. There’s a new part of town right by the beach, with little shops and relaxed tavernas. And just along the coast is Old Alykanas, with its church and quaint main square, surrounded by olive groves and orchards.
Alykanas Beach is a 1,200-metre curl of soft golden sand that’s backdropped by lush mountains and serves up views of Kefalonia in the distance. It has a great selection of watersports, including pedalos, windsurfing and banana boats. And the harbour at the edge of the beach offers up boat trips to some of Zante’s most photogenic beaches.
There’s no loud nightlife or busy streets here, which makes it perfect for a family getaway. Along the main strip there’s a cluster of bars and restaurants, which have play areas and activities to keep children occupied. Plus, you can go into neighbouring Alykes when the sun goes down for a family meal by the beach – it’s a 10-minute walk away.
Close to Smugglers Cove
Smugglers Cove, so-called because of the smugglers boat that ran aground in this bay, is a 40-minute boat trip from Alykanas. With turquoise waters sheltered by 200-metre high limestone cliffs, it’s been on the cover of more than a few travel magazines.
Excursions and Places of interest
Winery Oenopli – the estate spans over 17,000sqm of vineyards, which are located near to the village of Machairado (in the central, lowlands of the island). Producing a variety of wines, the winery is open for tours and tastings.
Solomos Winery – located 3kms behind Zakythnos Town, the Solomos winery produces several varieties of wine, and is open to the public for tastings and tours of the vineyard.
Callinico Winery – the 19,000sqm vineyard, is set in the village of Kalipado, near the villages of Tragaki and Vanato. The winery is open for tours and tastings.
Various boat excursions are available from most major ports / harbours in Zakynthos (Zakynthos Town, Keri,Agios Nikoloas, Alykes, Tsilvi), which offer a variety trips from: coastal day excursions, glass-bottom boats, ferries to the mainland (Killini) and Kefalonia.
Natural areas of beauty
Keri Caves – The caves are situated on the south western coast of the island. The white cliffs create a fantastic back drop as the stunning arches come out of the water. Along with the crystal clear waters, there are plenty of photo opportunities here and this boat trip is definitely worthwhile.
Blue Caves – Situated on the north of the island, in the region of Skinari, you will find the beautiful Blue Caves. Take a trip in a glass bottom boat and go right inside the caves to see the mesmerising rock formations, surrounded by the crystal blue waters.
Tsilvi Water Park – Located in the resort of Tsilvi, and built in 2010 the park offers a superb variety of slides, lazy river, children’s adventure water parks, and a large pool area. Restaurants and bars are set around the water park.
Water Village – Situated in the village of Sarakinado, located centrally on the island, Water Village has a great variety of slides and activities, along with a restaurant, gelateria, several snack bars and a poolside bar.
Turtle spotting – The Gulf of Laganas offers fantastic boat trips for turtle spotting.
The island is the main nesting ground for the Caretta Caretta Loggerheads and the turtles will always return to the same beach they were born on, to lay their eggs. With the help of the National Marine Park of Zakynthos, it is ensured that all trips cause as little effect to the turtles as possible. You will be able to see the animals in their natural environment and will often see them come to the surface of the water for air.
Shipwreck Bay – Also known as Navagio Bay, this is one of the most famous beaches in the Mediterranean. You can only get here via boat and it does get very busy, so the earlier you go, the better. Boats leave throughout the day from various parts of the island, so you can get a bigger boat or smaller boat depending on the area.
The old town
Zakynthos town is definitely worth a visit, with brilliant local restaurants and tavernas, plenty of shopping opportunities, a lovely harbour and great night-time scene. The architecture here is strongly influenced by the Venetians, however unfortunately an earthquake in 1953 destroyed most of the buildings, so the Zakynthians have had to try and rebuild their town to replicate how it once was.
There are quite a few museums in Zakynthos town, such as The Museum of Post Byzantine Art in Solomos Square, The Museum of Solomos and Eminent Zakynthians and The Roma Mansion.
There are also several other museums around the island, such as the Helmis Natural History Museum in Agia Marina, the Naval Museum in Tsilivi, and the Exhibition Center of Caretta Caretta in Dafni.
Churches / Cathedrals
There are a variety of Orthodox Churches within Zakynthos town, such as The Church of Saint Dionisius and The Church of Saint Nicholas.
St. Markos Church is the only Catholic Church on the island and is situated next to the Museum of Solomos and Kalvos.
Other churches are the St. Nicholas Kiliomenou Church, St. Mavra Church, Virgin Keriotissa Church, Church on the Sea and St. Elipsos Church.
There is a large concrete cross in Skiza, near Kambi Village, which can be seen from miles away. This honours those people who were thrown off the cliff in World War II during the Nazi occupation.
The ancient Venetian Castle of Zakynthos is in the region of Bochali. The area surrounding the castle has been beautifully preserved and is lovely to walk around. It was thought to have been built in around 1480 on the site of the Ancient Acropolis. The castle has been destroyed and re-built several times, from invasions and earthquakes alike, however even today when you visit, you will still be able to see plenty of remains from churches, the fortress, prisons and canons.
