Grantzaos Villas

The southern side of Zakynthos is the most popular part of the island. You will find bustling taverns and busy beaches, especially in the summer months. Not my favourite holiday destination, I realised after spending a day in the famous town of Laganas. Luckily, I stumbled upon a completely different side of the island just to the west of Laganas. Agios Sostis.

Four centuries ago, Mother Nature stirred up Zakynthos: an earthquake caused a piece of the island to break off, creating a new island just to the west of Laganas. The small coastal town of Agios Sostis owes its name to this ‘new’ island, which has remained uninhabited since its creation. Agios Sostis is a perfect base for people like myself. Those who don't want to choose and want it all: the warmness of Greek hospitality and the beauty and serenity of nature.

During my stay at Grantzaos Villas, I found exactly what I had been looking for. This picturesque area filled with olive groves and wild flowers makes you forget that the most popular tourist attraction Zakynthos is just a few kilometres away. Especially during those hours-long walks on the beach with breathtaking views in the early morning and during sunset. At Grantzaos Villas, you can enjoy life in complete serenity: as if you were on a desert island.
