If you’re not afraid of navigating steep, winding mountain roads, you’ll be well rewarded in Volimes, the largest and highest of the northern mountain villages on Zante Island. 30 kilometers northwest of Zakynthos town, this town is brimming with pine forests, olive groves, local farms, and vineyards, not to mention loads of traditional architecture and extremely authentic restaurants.
From here you can visit Xigia beach, Makris Gialos beach, and Agios Nikolaos beach, or stay in town to explore the churches and monasteries like the Monastery of Agios Georgios Krimnon and the Monastery of Anafonitria. You’re also close to the Blue Caves and Shipwreck Beach Alternately, spend an afternoon shopping for locally made wares like leather goods, ceramics, honey, cheese, and more. This remote village doesn’t offer much in the way of hotels, but some villas are available to rent in the area.
