Zante Holidays

Zante Holidays – An island of two halves

Zante (properly Zakynthos in Greek) is an extremely picturesque island, whose touristic southern and eastern beaches and surrounding fertile plains contrast starkly with the scantily inhabited mountains and wild coasts of the west and north. The capital, Zakynthos Town, provides some cultural highlights, as well as the pick of places to stay and eat.

The resorts are firmly the territory of package holidays, ranging from those aimed more at youngsters to extremely family-friendly destinations. There are also plenty of rooms and villas dotted around the island that can provide quieter getaways to independent travellers.
