The three villages of Volimes (upper, middle and lower Volimes) are located about 30 km to the north-west of Zakynthos Town, the capital of the island.
The village of Volimes is a popular spot to drive through, and to wander around, if you are touring the northern and western coasts of the island of Zante – where some of the most famous sites and activities are found.
The mountainous area around Volimes is relatively untouched by tourism, with traditional architecture and a peaceful atmosphere.
The economy in this part of Zante is based on agriculture and the markets for hand crafted lace, rugs, leather goods, pottery and other local produce such as homemade cheese, wine and natural honey. You will see many little stores selling their wares on the streets of Volimes and you can pick up some really interesting souvenirs here.
The mountainous region offers spectacular views to the neighbouring island of Keffalonia, and the numerous coastal coves are picture postcard perfect, from the steep cliffs down to the crystal clear waters.
