Holidays to Agios Dimitrios take you to a remote village in Zante. It’s a real away-from-it-all haven but with beaches and nightlife just a short drive away.
An old-fashioned beauty
Agios Dimitrios is a mountain village tucked away right in the heart of Zante. It’s a peaceful setting, with an historic windmill and chapel steeping it in old-world charm. The place is out of the way enough to offer a really relaxed vibe, but bars and tavernas are within an easy drive, as are some great sandy beaches and the island capital.
A beach choice
Being in the centre of the island, there isn’t any sand on your doorstep, but it’s only 10 minutes’ drive to Alykes and its golden beach. The sands spool along the coast for 3 kilometres, though you won’t have to wander far to find the umbrellas, loungers and beach bars – or the main street lined with shops and tavernas. There’s also watersports-friendly Tsilivi Beach, about 15 minutes away.
Near Zante Town
You’re just 10 kilometres from the island capital, Zante Town. This was rebuilt in the old Venetian style after an earthquake in 1953, but you’ve still got the ruins of a Venetian fortress on a hill above town, plus a clutch of museums to deliver your culture fix. There’s plenty of life down by the marina, or try St Mark Square for shops, tavernas and pavement cafés.
