Located over a private cove in the middle of "Psarou" beach, Porta del mar is a holiday bliss with fascinating sea-views and quality beach front accommodation. We are looking forward to meeting you!
Porta del mar Beach villas are located over a private cove in the middle of Psarou beach, an area that is placed between the communities of Alykes and Tsilivi, just 12 km northwest of Zakynthos town, the capital of the island.
"Psarou beach" is a peaceful rural area, surrounded by the typical flora that can be found on the Ionian islands (olive groves, vineyards, citrus fruits, greenery with flowers, crops with vegetables, etc.). The area remains unspoiled since there is no large tourist industry around. The locals are involved in farming and agriculture the winter months and in tourism in the summer months.
Psarou beach has been awarded with the Blue flag over the last 10 consecutive years, thanks to its crystal clear waters. It is very safe for all ages and ideal for swimming and snorkeling.
The surrounding area provides: Romantic walks along Psarou beach, stretching for more than 500 meters and the neighboring beaches of Amoudi, Alikanas, Alykes and Xigia. Interesting walks through the beautiful olive groves that cover an extensive area of hills, valleys and small villages, ideal for trekking and photography. Various rentals for a wide range of your holiday activities, such as: horse riding, boat trips, water sports, fishing boats to rent privately and a lot more. Easy access to the famous Shipwreck beach or the unique Sulfa Beach “Xigia” or the stunning Blue Caves by a rental boat or OUR motor boat (after arrangement) for unforgettable boat trips in the most remote and unspoiled beaches of Zakynthos. Shopping evenings and night life in the nearby towns of Alykanas, Alykes and Tsilivi with plenty of supermarkets, souvenir shops, bars, night clubs etc. Within walking distance (50 – 200 meters from your villa) you will find many taverns and 2 mini-markets.
The golden Greek sun shines upon the island long enough to offer you a generous natural tan. The tourist season on Zakynthos lasts 6 months from mid April to mid October. During these months the island enjoys the best weather conditions from every other European region. Particularly, in our location, July and August are the hottest months with day temperatures of about 30 degrees C and daily sunshine hours reaching more than 14 hours. The cool months of the season are April, May and October with average day temperatures of about 20 degrees C and sunshine hours per day above 12 for May and 8 for October. In the summer, the waters are very calm until the evening hours(usually 3pm.), then a pleasant, moderate cool breeze blows from the North-West.
However, please take into account that after sunset and during the nights temperatures can fall down to 7 degrees C and therefore you might need to put on something more than just a T-shirt! Rainfall during the season is very rare and if it happens (3 to 7 days per month) it wont last for more than a few hours. Please don’t forget to bring with your rather strong sun cream….
