This beautiful island in the Ionian Sea is a holiday paradise, popular for many years with solo travellers, yet this is the first year that Friendship Travel has holidayed in Zante! Smaller than its sister islands of Corfu and Kefalonia, Zante is a true gem, edged by superb sandy beaches and set in astonishingly clear waters. No wonder the island is a favourite port of call for loggerhead turtles, which nest on Laganas beach. 

Called Zakynthos by the Greeks, the name of Zante came into use during the Middle Ages when Italy held sway: their influence is still seen in the neo-classical architecture of Zante Town, where a Venetian-style fortress dominates the pretty bay. Come for a week to enjoy the sun and the sand; come for a fortnight if you really want to discover the island’s dramatic cliffs above hidden coves, its wildlife from seals to turtles, and its food and wine.

Located just a few kilometres north of Zante Town is the popular resort of Tsilivi. It’s popular for a very good reason: there is a long sweep of golden sand which is a magnet for holidaymakers and locals alike. So we are delighted to have secured the majority of the rooms at the Apollon Hotel for the whole summer, so that we can create a proper Friendship Houseparty in the heart of this lively resort. Much of the special atmosphere is due to the warm welcome extended to us by the owners, Dionysios and his family who are rightly proud of this simple and very central little hotel. The Apollon is set on a small side road that leads, little more than 100 metres away, to Tsilivi’s beautiful beach.

The courtyard at the front of the Apollon has a small pool surrounded by loungers and parasols. Beside this is the Apolis bar and restaurant where we’ll take continental breakfast most mornings and dinner on 5 nights of each week. The friendly staff make great cocktails, and create tasty, simple dishes ranging from traditional Greek food to popular pizzas and pasta dishes.

The lobby lounge is beside reception in the centre of the hotel, with the rooms in wings on either side. For Summer 2017 repeat guests will notice a number of improvements and refurbishments to make summer 2017 even better than 2016

The Hotel

  • 19 rooms
  • Swimming pool
  • Beach towels provided
  • Bar
  • Restaurant
  • Lounge

The heart of the resort is no more than a 5-10 minute stroll away, so on the nights when we do not eat in, there is a good choice of tavernas and bars to discover at your own expense, including one with an American bowling alley though we suspect many of our guests will find it hard to leave the Apolis!

Tsilivi beach is gently-shelving and good for swimming, and there’s usually a cooling breeze which means there’s a choice of watersports here. There is so much going on in Tsilivi – from crazy golf to a new water park, not to mention the other attractions of Zante – that we suspect our great-value 14 night Houseparties are going to be much in demand!

The rooms have high ceilings, they are airy and a good size, furnished with a double or twin beds and a small shower room. Every room has a mini-fridge so you can keep bottled water cool, and if you need it, air-con and a small safe.

Prices are based on ground-floor rooms with a terrace. Rooms with private balconies or with a full sea view are available with a supplement. Our Houseparty is likely to fill most of the hotel, but Dionysios will retain 5 rooms for their own guests.
