About this holiday
Our charming, simple property is ideally located in the easy going traditional seaside village of Alykanas and is a mere 200 metres level walk from the soft golden sands of Alykanas Beach. Surrounded by endless vineyards and olive groves, there are a few waterfront bars by the beach where we can sip on a refreshing drink or Greek cocktail in the evening as we watch the sun go down. The beach, offers a great selection of watersports, however for those that would rather enjoy some Greek sunshine, sun loungers and beach umbrellas are lined up for hire. At the end of the beach lays the small harbour of Alykanas, where most boats moor for excursions to Smugglers Cove and the Blue Caves. In the evening, the relaxed atmosphere of the resort continues, with a number of bars and restaurants offering traditional Greek cuisine. If you are looking for livelier evening entertainment then the neighbouring resort of Alykes is just 1km away.
Relax & Unwind
It is said, in classical times the Greeks honoured the twelve Gods of the Holy Mountain Olympus.
The Mount Olympus Studios consists of 12 spacious studio apartments divided over three floor (upper floors accessible by a lift). Every room has a different coloured theme and is named after an Olympic God.
Breakfast will be served daily underneath large parasols in the breakfast area; ‘Ambrosia Court’. The rest of the day can be spent relaxing by the private newly built swimming pool with a good book and a cool drink from the well-stocked ‘Nectar Bar’ run on an honesty basis during the day. Alternatively you can stock up your favourite drinks and snacks from the nearby supermarket, the choice is yours. Your relaxation and enjoyment is the Mount Olympus ethos.
Each evening, we will all enjoy one complimentary pre dinner cocktail mixed by your host at the hotel’s ‘Nectar Bar’. We have 3 included dinners; two to be held at a nearby taverna and the third a BBQ night to be hosted at the hotel by the pool. For the remainder of the week, we can choose to stay in the resort or head into the capital, Zante Town which is 25 minute drive away.
If you are looking for a day or two away from the sun loungers, we will find that Zakynthos has much more to offer than its beautiful beaches. The capital, Zakynthos Town, once known as ‘Venice of the South’ is a must see. Here, we can spend the day exploring its ancient churches and museums such as the St Denis Church or Church of Saint Dionissios which is dedicated to the patron Saint on Zakynthos. Alternatively, we can spend a relaxing day by boat sailing down the island’s stunning coastline, passing glorious beaches including Navagio Beach or Shipwreck Beach! If you are feeling more adventurous, why not book a guided or self-guided hike and experience the beauty of Zakynthos on foot.
