Known as “the Flower of the East”, Zakynthos is a Greek Isle like no other. With green hillsides covered with flowers in spring and early summer, cliffs dropping to dazzling turquoise waters, and some of the country´s best beaches, a luxury villa holiday to Zakynthos will leave you amazed and never wanting to leave.
One of Greece’s best-known beauty hot spots, Zakynthos is an island boasting lush greenery and a stunning shoreline of sandy beaches. Whilst some may know this stunning Greek island as a party destination, there is so much more, making it a villa holiday paradise.
Famed for their natural, unspoilt beauty, fine white volcanic sand and turquoise waters, the beaches of Zakynthos are what draws back visitors every year. Whether you want to discover rugged natural beaches nestled in rocky formations, private, pine-clad islets for total seclusion, or vibrant beach clubs right on the sand, this greek island has something for everyone. There is no better way to explore all of the beaches on the island than by chartering a boat – be sure to head to the stunning Shipwreck bay and marvel at the amazing blue-water caves.
Zakynthos is an island full of character. As you head inland, you will discover traditional stone-clad villages hidden in the pine-covered mountains. 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. And the southern and eastern coastlines boast luxury private homes and stunning holiday villas, as well as popular restaurants, local tavernas and VIP beach clubs. From the charming harbour of Agios Nikolaos and the small coastal village of Keri – to the family-oriented resort of Tsivili, Zakynthos is the perfect summer destination for both friends and families.
You’ll never tire of things to do on this Greek island. For the day trip trips away from your luxury villa rental, you can take a boat trip to Marathonisi, also known as Turtle Island. This is an island entirely uninhabited aside from the endangered loggerhead turtles. Or visit the ‘World’s Best Beach’ – Navagio Beach, which has the iconic shipwreck in the middle of the beach. Or enjoy a fresh seafood lunch in one of many pretty village tavernas.
Our luxury Zakynthos villas can be found in some of the prettiest parts of the island, with breathtaking views from the moment you wake up. Whether you are looking for a family-friendly villa with a private pool and plenty of surrounding space to play, or a romantic beachfront villa, we will be sure to find the perfect Zakynthos villa rental for you and your group.
We don’t do ordinary here. We are a small team of experienced travel specialists, no request is too big or too small, so please do ask for our advice if you are planning to book a luxury villa in Zakynthos.

Zakynthos essential visit
Spotting turtles – Boat rental is an unforgettable experience, as you can drive the vehicle independently to look for and observe the turtles, also making additional stops in the less touristy coves and bays of Zakynthos.
The summer months are when Zakynthos really comes alive. The quieter months tend to be April to June, and then the crowds arrive to make the most of the warm weather, warm waters and long summer evenings. September and October are both magical times for Zakynthos, where you will feel like you have the place to yourself and the temperature is a little cooler.
Zakynthos has its own airport – Zakynthos Airport “Dionysios Solomos”. You can also travel by ferry if this is preferred.
Hiring a car is recommended if you want to explore the delights of this incredible island yet it can be extremely busy with long queues at the airport during the summer months. Please do ask our team if you would like a luxury vehicle delivered to your private Zakynthos villa on arrival.
We recommend hiring a boat for the day to explore the coastline of Zakynthos and its many bays. Just let us know what you’d like to do and our team will be able to organise something extra special.
Our website offers a small flavour of the many houses we work with and some of our owners prefer to remain anonymous.
