As you would expect with any Greek island, Zante is full of history and culture from Greek mythology to the Romans and more. Over the century’s, ownership of the island has changed from the Romans to the Venetians in 1485, to the French and Turkish to the British in 1809 whom made Zante the capital of the Ionian state.
Even modern times have helped shape Zante from German and the Italians using Zante as a base in World War 2 to a devastating earthquake that brought Zante town to its knees.
There are plenty of museums and tourist spots for anyone seeking the more cultural side of Zante. If you prefer to stay by the pool or beach then Zante is still perfect for the bucket and spade type of holiday.
Where to fly from

Why a Zante Adults only holiday
Zante is perfect for any holiday maker. As already mentioned the island is superb for culture buffs and those whom seek a restful break by the pool. There are plenty of watersports and walks for the more active holidaymakers. That said the two hotels that we offer are small and set in quiet locations. They are perfect for those seeking a get away from it all break.
Best BeachesWe can appreciate that many holidaymakers just love to read a book and soak the sun up. Therefore if you seek a beach then the best ones are the Banana beach in Vasilikos and Ammos beach which both are sandy and located next to each other. If you seek a more quiet beach then check out Keri beach albeit this beach is a mix of sand and pebbles.
Food and drinkThe Greek islands offer some amazin cuisine and Zante is no different. We always advise trying a traditional greek tavern. You will find a range of amazing fresh sea food dishes to chicken and pork dishes. Veal is also on the menu. Porot Mela is one of our favourite restaurants in Zante town. Ouzo is the traditional drink and a shot or two is worth a try.
