Zakinthos, a Greek island rich in natural beauty, offers a fantastic setting for a villa holiday. Its impressive long sandy beaches and crystal waters, some home to nesting sea-turtles, are beautifully contrasted with traditional stone-clad villages hidden in the pine covered mountains. The animated beach resorts on Zakinthos offer an array of restaurants, bars and watersports along the southern and eastern coastlines – an ideal location for a summer holiday. While in the west spectacular sea caves and peaceful coves are surrounded by dramatic cliffs to offer tranquillity and seclusion. Leisure pursuits like cycling, hiking, horseback riding and nature trails offer wonderful ways to enjoy the changeable Zakinthos landscape – from its rolling hills and olive groves to scented citrus orchards. A divers’ paradise, Zakinthos has an underwater world well worthy of exploration. While on land, in between the sharp-edged rocks and protected white sandy beaches, you can watch the famous sea-turtles native to Zakinthos find refuge to reproduce. Paragliding, banana rides, pedaloes and canoes are also available to help you cool off on your villa holiday in the dazzling sun. Modern amenities are a feature of this Greek iIsland, but a long history steeped in tradition is also waiting to be discovered in Zakinthos. Beautiful orthodox churches, archaeological sites and Venetian castle ruins are dotted all around. Quiet villages and traditional stone houses line narrow streets, often perched in the mountains. Museums celebrate the Byzantine era and Greek literary works. Baroque and Renaissance architecture is also found all over Zakinthos, proudly maintained by its Greek island native inhabitants.
