Location

Situated on the stunning, north-east coast of Zakynthos, a five minute drive from the small port and beach of Agios Nikolaos, the villa faces east over the Ionian Sea towards Kefalonia. The popular Peligoni Club is a 10 minute walk away. Other sandy beaches are nearby and accessible by boat or by car.

Local Information

On the beach in the next bay there is a private club of which you can become a member for the duration of your stay. PLEASE ENQUIRE. The club offers sailing and windsurfing as well as floodlit tennis, a fantastic bar and restaurants. Try your hand at other water sports, ringo and banana rides as well as waterskiing.

There are excellent fish and vegetable markets in the Venetian town of Zakynthos, plus various restaurants and shops. Closer to home, visit the winery and Byzantine art studio, hire a boat for the day from Nikos, walk the mountains and look over Kefalonia, or visit Kefalonia itself, a short ferry ride away. Charter the fabulous 50’ wooden traditional Greek fishing boat “Odyssey” and visit Shipwreck Bay (voted one of the top beaches in the world by Conde Nast Traveller

Zakynthos is one of the most beautiful of Greek islands. Homer wrote about it in the Iliad and the Odyssey, while Ulysses lived here. The Arcadians came and flourished, reaping crops from its rich fertile soil as did the Venetians who called it “The Flower of the Levant”. Some of their monasteries still survive in the nearby mountains. The sea around the coast is clean and crystal clear, turtles can be spotted swimming nearby and the local restaurant cooks octopus pulled from the water that morning. The island produces wonderful olive oil, fruit (oranges, apricots, pomegranates, figs, apples, pears, lemons, peaches, nectarines to name a few), poultry and meat. There are several friendly tavernas, plate smashing included! Two “party nights” at the nearby club and a funky cocktail bar in the port with music until dawn. Sufficiently far away from Xyloporta not to disturb it’s peace but providing something for everyone.
