Zakynthos, or Zante as the Venetians called it, is an Ionian island with rich vegetation and significant agricultural production. The most beautiful and sandy beaches are on the eastern side of the island, while Lagana’s Gulf, with its magnificent beach, has been declared as a National Park, because it is a nesting place of endangered turtle Caretta-Caretta. Buying a property in Zakynthos will cost up to 3,500€/sqm for a remarkable detached house with sea view.
