Sandy beaches and a hillside village
The village of Tragaki is a peaceful paradise up in the hills. Surrounded by olive groves and vineyards, it’s an idyllic spot away from some of the island’s livelier resorts.
Life belongs in the slow lane here, with just a few authentic tavernas and restaurants, and a string of sandy beaches just down the hill (where you’ll find our hotels). If you feel like upping the pace, you’re not far from Tsilivi’s restaurants and bars.
Flight time from the UK to Zakynthos is around 3 hours 30 minutes.
Transfer time from Zakynthos airport to Tragaki is approximately 20 minutes.
Zakynthos is very much a summer destination, with temperatures starting to climb around Easter time. May and June are pleasantly warm, and by July you can expect the mercury to nudge 30 degrees. Being an island, you can often expect a sea breeze or two - a welcome break from the midsummer heat.
Currently visas are not required for UK citizens travelling to Greece.
In Greece, a service charge will be included in the bill at restaurants and bars. Much like the UK, an additional tip is not required, although is appreciated for particularly good service. It is common to round off the amount when paying cash, particularly with wait staff and taxi drivers.
The official language of Greece is Greek. English is widely spoken, too, so getting by is easy.
