Volimes is 31.5 km north west of Zakynthos Town and is a collective name for three villages called Kato Volimes, Ano Volimes and Messo Volimes. The names correspond to their geographical position – Ano means upper, Kato down and Messo middle. The local handiwork produced here is well known throughout Greece. Lace, embroidery, carpets and ceramics are still handmade using traditional methods, as are wine, honey, and cheese.
A historic mountain settlement, Volimes is a great place to visit for those wanting to get closer to the traditional rural way of life on the island. The sight of multicoloured houses against craggy limestone cliffs is characteristic of Volimes, which is surrounded by pine forests, olive groves and vineyards.
