About this location

The Ionian Islands region

Zakynthos is an island of many attractions and rich history.have a beach holiday,enjoy the nightlife,visit the many historic sites,explore the flora and fauna,watch the famous careta turtles hatch their eggs,experience the local cuisine.


Akrotiri is a three hill complex situated on the southeast part of the island. Just one mile from Zakynthos town and a mile from Tsilivi beach resort. Considered to be one of the most beautiful and convenient parts of the island for many locals and travelers alike. A combination of amazing views, unspoiled beauty, tranquility,nature trails, nearby beaches and rich history.

Bohali hill

This is the main and most populated hill (and village) Bohali, it is a piece of local history and beauty. With the walls of its Venetian castle overlooking Zakynthos town and harbor from the east and the valley from the north.

Strani hill.

The smallest but arguably the richest in history hill on the island. Birthplace and place of inspiration for the Greek national poet Dionisios Solomos. The old family mansion is still there alongside cannons and statues dating as far back as Venetian times,all among beautiful gardens and northeast facing views of the Zakynthian valley.

Frido hill

The biggest, highest and best preserved of the three hills.With only a handful of villas,there is a real rural feel to the place yet it is so close to the town.Nature trails leading to beautiful hidden rocky beaches, thru olive groves with trees as old as half a millennium and orchards. English fiction writer Edgar Allan Poe use to walk these trails a long time ago looking for inspiration.From here you can enjoy uninterrupted views to the mainland and the neighboring islands of Kefalonia and Ithaca on the east and the valley and Zakynthian mountains on the west side of the hill.
