A tranquil village on the southeast coast of Zante, Agios Sostis is a serene antidote to the bustling town of Laganas, only minutes away. The pristine sandy beach is lined with fragrant pine forests and the sea is a calm, crystal-clear blue. Agios Sostis holidays are perfect for families and those seeking a relaxing break away from the hustle and bustle of larger resorts, while still being close to city amenities.
In the evening, seafront tavernas and village bars host Greek nights with traditional dancing and live music. But if you prefer a sunset cocktail with a seriously Instagrammable backdrop, head to Cameo Island, accessible by a rickety footbridge that stretches from the village across the turquoise sea. As well as being a favoured wedding venue, the tiny island is home to a chic beach bar and café where you can lose a few hours feeling like a thoroughly pampered castaway.
