Ideal for those wanting to experience authentic Greek life, Agios Leon is a traditional village set in the unspoiled west of the island. A great location to escape the crowds, the village has everything you’ll need during your stay. The nearby dramatic coastline dotted with coves allows plenty of opportunity for sea gazing, boat trips and magical walks. Top it off with a visit to one of the sunset bars of the region for sundowners with a view.

You’ll find local mini markets within the village perfect for stocking up on essentials for your villa, plus a bakery for fresh bread and treats. For a wider selection, there are supermarkets in Laganas resort, approximately 25 minutes’ drive away.

There are 3 tavernas in Agios Leon serving traditional Greek cuisine – ideal for a taste of authentic Zante. The village has a laid-back feel and is quiet come evening, but you’ll find an excellent sunset bar in the region with incredible views of the sea and dramatic coastline.
