Villa holidays in Zakynthos (or Zante) are your gateway to one of Greece’s beauty hot-spots. With lush greenery and a stunning shoreline of sandy beaches and rugged cliffs all at your disposal, you can explore it it all from the comfort of your own luxury villa.
The west of the island is the place to go for hidden coves and to witness some of the best sunsets anywhere in the Mediterranean. The more popular holiday resorts are found along the south and east coastlines – perfect for lazing on soft golden sand beaches, or enjoying fresh fish at local tavernas.
Everything you can wish for is right on the doorstep of our villas in Zakynthos.
Zante is the sunniest island in the Ionian Sea, boasting average temperatures of 28 degrees throughout the year. It's a great place for all types of holiday – from family getaways to romantic escapes and everything in between.
The island has something for everyone: stunning beaches, lush forests, rugged mountain ranges and traditional tavernas.
The Greek island of Zakynthos, also known by its Italian name Zante, offers guests plenty of reasons to come back again and again. The picture-perfect coastline is only the start when it comes to our Zante villa holidays.
There are charming villages set back in the hills if you want the authentic Greek experience, and Zakynthos Town itself doesn’t hold back from delivering the bustle of bars and restaurants for the fast-paced getaway.
Beaches in Zakynthos
With over 50 beaches and 20 miles of coastline just waiting for you to enjoy, walk these sandy beaches barefoot, then end the day gazing out at the gorgeous sea from the comfort of our Zante villas to rent.
Bright white sand and tempting turquoise waters backed by rugged cliff faces make the beaches in Zakynthos some of the best in all of the Greek Islands.
Most resort beaches to the east and southern coastlines offer tavernas and water sports facilities, whereas the wild west coast is home to more natural and rockier beaches and hidden coves.
Agios Sostis beach
This beach is located on the east coast of Zakynthos, close to the village of Agios Sostis. This is a beautiful sandy beach but there aren't any facilities there. However there is a small taverna nearby.
Dafni (Navagio) beach
Dafni - also known as Navagio beach (or Shipwreck beach), is a small beach with a rocky cove, on the west coast of Zakynthos. It is one of the most photographed beaches in Greece for good reason - dramatic cliffs surrounded by mountains, black sand, and an idyllic-looking shipwreck in the middle of the beach. You might have seen the beach before as it was featured in Game of Thrones and Baywatch.
Gerakas Beach is the longest, most popular sandy beach in Zante. Located near the main town, you can easily access it by car or bus. The beach has two different sections: one with a restaurant, taverna and lifeguards; another with sunbeds and umbrellas available for rent.
This popular beach is a perfect place for a family with young children. The beach itself is beautiful, with soft white sands that stretch out along the coast under clear blue skies. You'll also find plenty of trees offering shade from the sun, as well as cafes along the waterline serving up drinks and local snacks like souvlaki or grilled fish sandwiches.
Nightlife in Zakynthos
Our villas to rent in Zakynthos are located in many family-friendly resorts which offer a variety of restaurants and bars. Whether you want an easy-going evening or a more upbeat tempo, you’ll be greeted by seafront bars, live music and authentic Greek dancing for you to enjoy at your leisure.
Food and Drink in Zakynthos
Take a trip to the markets in Zakynthos Town to stock up on fresh fruit and vegetables for your Zante villa, which is equipped with everything you need for a self-catering holiday.
Like all the Greek Islands, Zakynthos cuisine consists mainly of fresh seafood, meat dishes and vegetables. One speciality dish is ‘Spetsofai’ – a rabbit stuffed with creamy cheese and herbs which can be sampled in most tavernas on the island.
History and Culture in Zakynthos
Much of Zakynthos’ shoreline is protected from mass tourism to preserve the endangered Loggerhead turtles which come here to nest. There are many boat excursions on offer to try and catch a glimpse of the beautiful creatures.
