When you're planning a villa holiday, the first thing that comes to mind is the cost, and how much it…
Ideal for a villa holiday, Zakynthos is a popular Greek island in the Ionian Sea. Breathtaking landscapes, exotic beaches with white sand and turquoise waters combined with a vibrant nightlife make it a great Greek villa holiday destination. The harbour city of Zakynthos is the capital and major hub, centred around the waterfront, Solomos Square. Accessed only by boat, the worldwide famous Navagio beach is the site of a famed 1980 shipwreck resting in a sandy cove framed by cliffs.

Zakynthos is one of the most exotic Greek islands with a wonderful natural landscape and stunning beaches. Exploring Zakynthos, you’ll discover picturesque hilltop villages, traditional monasteries, and dreamy natural landscapes.
