Surrounded by the crystal-clear emerald water of the Ionian Sea, the enchanting green island of Zakynthos (also called Zante), is among the most beautiful of all the Greek Islands. Located south of Kefalonia, it is world famous for its white sands, sea turtles and partying around the clock. Much loved for its breathtaking scenery, the interior of the island is a lush expanse of pine covered mountains and vineyards, a contrast to its powder-soft beaches, quiet coves and secret bays which are perfect for an afternoon of blissful solitude or perhaps a little rock-pool exploration.
Relaxing holidays in Zakynthos can be spent exploring monasteries, whitewashed chapels and forgotten Venetian ruins, listening to the islanders sing their cantatas, swimming in the company of the endangered Caretta-caretta sea turtles, or sampling delicious local dishes in the many traditional tavernas dotted throughout Zakynthos Town and the surrounding stone-clad villages.
We have some gorgeous luxury villas in Zakynthos where you can make the most of the sunniest island in the Mediterranean. Boasting sun-kissed terraces, handsome gardens and refreshing swimming pools, there is plenty of space for large groups and families looking to unwind or celebrate a special occasion. Some properties may even include a hot tub, games room, or in-house staff to prepare local Greek cuisine.
Rich in natural beauty, Zakynthos makes the perfect destination for a holiday in Greece. For more inspiration, visit our Greek Islands destination guide.
