By mid/end of May, the weather generally settles in a pattern of long hot sunny days and balmy evenings especially in July and August when it can be very hot.

Cultural excursions to the archaeological site of Ancient Olympia and visits to the Byzantine Museum of Zakynthos, the Monastery of St. Dionysios or a traditional winery are only a few experiences offered at Porto Zante.

The 9 villa hideaway retreat is tucked into the rocky cliffs of ionic island of Zakynthos. Porto Zante would be impossible to find, due to the fact that it is unmarked and nestled discretely into an olive grove and suspended directly above the water.
The only way one could maybe find it in fact would be by boat, and even that would be hard considering all the villas are organically covered by the landscape itself. Privacy is an understatement, personal paradise would be more accurate. Endless views of the Ionic blue and a sunset on the nearby island of Kefalonia provide for the most picturesque views from your Villa.
At Porto Zante guests have the ability to customize their stay from a private boat ride to a secret beach to sushi at 3 am. It is here that you can make your stay feel less like a vacation and more like a personal wellness retreat, where leaving Porto Zante is not entirely necessary - the villas are the best, the food is the best, the views are the best, and the people who work there are truly the best.
Hamish Gordon-Lennox (Staff)
Porto Zante is a really great private retreat, with absolutely stunning views of the Ionian. The villas are all really well equipped with all the facilities you may expect on site for you. This is the perfect place for a family to enjoy complete privacy with excellent service, food and wine.
Some of the villas have connecting doors in the garden for larger groups and the hotel is very open to suggestions on what you may need to make the stay perfect. It is obvious to see that everything here is about the service.
Should you want to explore the island which I recommend, it is so easy to get around and the hotel can organize motor boats, yacht trips, sailing and windsurfing.
I'm looking forward to staying a bit longer next time!
Mr Kannan Niththy (Guest)
Louise and I are just finishing our vacation. We would like to say this place was just amazing and quality of service was just exceptional. We both have traveled to some amazing places and this was right up there. Everything they did from organising a surprise birthday to general service was of the highest order.
Thank you for your help.
