Poseidon Villa Location

Poseidon Suites are located on a Zakynthian hill in the area of Skinaria overlooking the deep blue waters of the Ionian Sea. Skinaria is a traditional village near Volima and Agios Nikolaos. All the suites are surrounded by local trees and bushes, offering a vibe of tranquility to every visitor.

Agios Nikolaos, a true Zakynthian gem, is a picturesque village of the north that holds one of the best and most beautiful places on the island. The cozy houses, locals going about their everyday lives, and harbors with local fishing boats paint a picture of a different era.

Very close to the suites (6 km) is the port of Agios Nikolaos with a variety of shops, restaurants, and traditional taverns. From there enjoy a boat trip to Navagiou, the Blue Caves, and Kefalonia. You may as well visit the beach “Makris Gialos” (5 km from the villa) or “Navagio” (8 km from the villa).
