An attractive and unusual setting, as well as comfortable, convenient and affordable accommodation, makes the Argyrios Apartments, in Alykes, Zante, a great holiday base for families and couples.
The modern, self-catering studios and apartments are only 300m from the nearest beach and closer to the centre of the resort, on Zante’s north east coast. They are clean, bright, simply but comfortably furnished, with plenty of room inside and on the large, furnished balcony.
Two-people studios have a kitchenette including cooking rings, kettle, toaster and fridge, and a bathroom with shower, while two-bedroomapartments can sleep up to four.
Facilities include a maid service three times a week, anti-mosquito blinds, air conditioning for a local charge, private parking and even a small library. Guests may also use the pool at the adjoining Roulla studios complex.
The apartments are set in quiet rose gardens, and attractive surrounding scenery, including the natural salt flats which give the town its Greek name, and across which a wide path leads to the lovely, sandy beach, where the shallows are perfect for young children to enjoy splashing.
There are plenty of tavernas, restaurants, cocktail bars and shops close by, and another beautiful, and usually less crowded, beach, at Alykanas, is within walking distance, although taxis – and horse-drawn carriages – are available in the town. Sunbeds and parasols are hired out by several of the beach restaurants, which are mostly family-owned.
For adventures further afield, Zakynthos town, home to a Venetian castle and the Solomos heritage museum, is 16km away, and other fascinating sights on the island include Navagio Beach, where a shipwreck is becalmed, loggerhead turtles coming to lay their eggs on beaches in the Bay of Laganas, and a huge civil war memorial cross at Kampi.
