The Garden Village has a really unspoilt feel. Stone buildings cluster around flower-lined gardens, while a pool sits in the middle of a picturesque courtyard. The pool’s a good size and comes with a waterfall and a covered bar on the side. Guests rave about the house cocktails, which are well worth sampling.
The bar opens early and stays open until late. It serves an impressive range of homemade dishes that range from cooked breakfasts to big dinners. Plus, there are weekly barbecues and traditional Greek nights.
Overview of Kalamaki
Zante is a picture-perfect island retreat where everything looks like it has been transported straight from a film set. White-sand beaches gently slope into the sapphire Ionian Sea and the dramatic limestone cliffs and rich vegetation add to the island’s natural beauty.
On a holiday to Zante, you can visit a great mixture of family-friendly resorts as well as quieter, traditional villages. The Garden Village can be found in Kalamaki, where you’ll discover beautiful beaches and the charming backdrop of Mount Skopos. But, due to the island’s small size, it’s easy to reach party resorts like Laganas and secluded spots such as Tragaki.
Things to do in Zante
The Garden Village is only a few hundred metres from Kalamaki’s gently shelving beach. As loggerhead turtles nest here, there aren’t any water sports available, but there’s plenty of peace, tranquillity and beautiful scenery.
The beach might be calm but you can enjoy plenty of excursions. There are daily cruises where you can snorkel, spot the turtles or head on a guided tour of the island.
If you fancy a day trip, you’re only a 10-minute taxi journey away from the historic and culturally rich capital of Zante Town. Plus, the resort backs onto Zante’s main party destination of Laganas, so it’s easy to enjoy a big night out.
A stunning location that’s packed with Instagram-worthy views and plenty of activities, trips to Zante will keep the whole family happy.
