Villa Archimedes is located on a huge estate with vineyards, olive groves and gorgeous gardens in Agios Kirikos. It is 8km from Zante Town, 11km from Laganos and close to Kalamaki and some of the north coast resorts. It is 6.8km to the nearest beach. From this wonderful location, it is very easy to discover all that Zakynthos has to offer.

Zakynthos is home to the world famous Navagio or Shipwreck Beach. The island offers breathtaking landscapes, exotic, sandy beaches, turquoise bays and a crazy nightlife. Many of the beaches, including Laganas, Tsilivi and Kalamaki enjoy an excellent range of watersports. For those that love hiking and cycling, you will find many old footpaths leading to mountainous villages, monasteries and medieval towers.

Laganas is one of the two main tourist hotspots on Zakynthos along with Zante Town. Kalamaki is not far behind, though it is a little more laid-back. There is a good choice of restaurants at all of these resorts. The main street of Laganas runs along the lovely beachfront to Kalamaki. The 5km beach is wonderful with fine, silvery sand lined with sun loungers and parasols. Pedalos and boat trips are available to catch a glimpse of the protected Caretta turtles swimming around the bay. The beaches are part of the National Marine Park. The rare Caretta turtles lay their eggs in the sands of Gerakas, Dafni, Kalamaki, Marathonisi and Sakania, east of Laganas.

Agios Sostis is a charming, quaint coastal Greek village close to Laganas. It is surrounded by beautiful countryside and was named after a 16th century church dedicated to Saint Sostis. The village has a stunning backdrop of the mountains and a delightful beach. There are some waterfront charismatic bars and restaurants where you will receive a very warm welcome. You can also hire a boat from Agios Sostis over to Marathonissi Island.

In Zante Town, Solomos Square is a focal spot with many restaurants and bars and the interesting Byzantine Museum and Cultural Center. Bochali is a 2km stroll from the centre of Zante Town. The panoramic views are stunning of the pretty harbour, Argassi and the Bay of Laganas. The charming alleys are lined with traditional cafes and old houses. The castle at the top of the hill is well maintained and a popular attraction. Delicious wines can be tasted and bought at Solomos Wines distillery.The cellars are very attractive and worth a visit.

There is so much to see on this special island plus you should take a trip over to Turtle Island, 14km away.

Villa Archimedes is absolutely brilliant for a family holiday. There is so much entertainment. Tennis enthusiasts can enjoy a wonderful court which even has lighting for evening matches. There are bikes to borrow and plenty of areas for fun games of hide and seek. There are long paths for jogging and walking around the estate and lush lawns for picnics and games. In addition to the villa’s large infinity pool, there is also a shallow children’s pool.  

Zakynthos boasts a wonderful variety of magical Greek beaches. One of the most famous on the island is the Shipwreck Beach which children love visiting on a boat trip. Other sandy beaches that are good for families are Alykes, Tsilivi, Vassilikos, Ambala, Laganas, Kalamaki and Gerakas. Gerakas is considered to be one of the most beautiful and peaceful beaches in the south. The shallow waters are warm and very calm for young swimmers. Older children will love the cliffs and beaches at Porto Limnionas where some climbing is needed to reach the beach.

The coastline of the island is rocky in many places and there are many caves. The best-known caves are the ‘Blue Caves’. Marathonisi Island is a must visit. The small islet, opposite the villa, has tropical beaches and sea caves just outside Keri Beach. You can either rent your own boat or take an organised trip where you will be invited to swim and snorkel too. One of the beaches on Marathonissi is a favourite turtle-nesting spot. Besides turtles, you may also see dolphins in the waters of Zakynthos.

If you want a break from the beaches, you may like a day at a waterpark. There are two on the island, Tsilivi Water Park and Zakynthos Water Village. This is slightly smaller and very suitable for younger children.

It is really good to explore the island with children. Giri, on the west coast is the highest village and has beautiful windmills. Kambi is a small village in the mountains where you will see one of the best sunsets on the island. If you choose not to drive yourselves, you can take an organised island tour and visit idyllic mountain villages, a traditional olive oil factory and enjoy spectacular views.
