What's Gyri Like
Gyri is a tiny village close to the centre of Zakynthos island. It’s around 18km from the capital Zakynthos Town and that would be about a 30 minute drive.
The village has just 20-30 houses, a couple of which are rented out as holiday villas. There’s no hotels and just a single taverna so Gyri really isn’t a tourist hot spot. It’s a traditional little village with an authentic Greek feel to it.
Spend a little time wandering around Gyris 15th-century streets and schedule a lunch or dinner stop at the main street taverna which serves up traditional dishes in a charming outdoor courtyard.
Gyri is almost certainly too small and quiet for most to base their holiday around but for those that do want to be secluded away from the crowds then a stay in one of the villas is a great option, a car is a necessity as there’s not even any shops in the village and you’ll want to explore the island too.
As you’d expect from such a small village, night life is virtually non existent, you can head to the taverna and have a couple of drinks with your meal but that’s about it.
