We returned to Zante after just over 30 years and weren't disappointed. There are some terrible built up places on the island now, but this isn't one of them. A very unspoilt relaxing resort with friendly inexpensive tavernas selling good Greek food and cheap local wine. As for the Markella Studios etc, what can we add to what hasn't already been written by others? It is certainly as good as everything that everyone has said, very relaxing accomodation run by an enthusiastic couple Debbie and Dimitri, you couldn't want for better hosts. Not forgetting also Lena and the their friendly dog Maddy. Their friendlyness is overwhelming, nothing was too much trouble for them, and it was great to listen to Dimitri moaning about everything and everyone, but it gives you a good insight into the problems of Greece, but he loves the English! There is a good sized well kept clean swimming pool and nice gardens to relax in. A perfect Greek holiday.
It's easy walking to the seafront for the for the tavernas, but also worth an even shorter walk in the other direction for the Taverna Skaltsas, typically Greek and great for a lazy lunch. Several small supermarkets and bakery close by. At the back of the accomodation next to the lake you will find ducks, fish, frogs, fish and terrapins in the small river.More
