Zakynthos - island portrait

1953’s earthquake abruptly severed this gorgeous garden island’s historic continuity and the beauty that led to the Venetian overlords name for it of Fiore di Levante (The Flower of the Levant). One of the most artistically and intellectually advanced and Europeanized places in Greece, Zante was a place of theatres, concerts, masked balls, receptions, political activists and academies. Looking at the brilliance of what does remain in the churches and museums of Zakynthos, one can feel the loss.

Zakynthos has a split personality – in the south, the wide shallow sandy beaches fringe the entire coast and are full of tourist life.  In the north however, you will find life as it is lived away from the tourists. Ancient villages, springs and ruined Venetian manor houses and estates, impressive pre-earthquake architecture set in beautiful arable uplands, olives & orchards.   #FiveStarGreece #LuxuryVillas #HolidayMatchmakers
