The Angela Studios is welcoming new and returning ClubSolos guests for summer 2022. Located in Alykanas, on the north-eastern coast of Zakynthos. This property is exclusive to Solos guests and is an uncrowded space for our singles groups. With the beach and resort centre only a few minutes’ walk away the Angela Studios are the perfect place to spend a week or two enjoying the Grecian summer sun in great company.
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 who would rather enjoy some Greek sunshine, sun loungers and beach umbrellas are lined up for hire. At the end of the beach lies the small harbour of Alykanas, where boats moor for excursions to Smugglers Cove and the Blue Caves. In the evening, you can enjoy relaxed dining experiences in resort with plenty of bars and restaurants offering traditional Greek cuisine. If you are looking for a livelier experience, there is a range of entertainment at the neighbouring resort of Alykes, which is just 1km away.
It is said, in classical times the Greeks honoured the twelve Gods of the Holy Mountain Olympus. The Angela Studios consists of 12 spacious studio apartments divided over three floors (upper floors accessible by a lift). Each room has a different coloured theme and is named after an Olympic God.
Breakfast will be served each morning in the breakfast/lounge area and the rest of the day can be spent relaxing by the lovely private swimming pool with a good book and a cool drink from the honesty bar. You may choose stock up on your favourite drinks and snacks from the nearby supermarket – the choice is yours. Your relaxation and enjoyment is the Angela Studios ethos.
We have three included dinners: two to be held at a nearby taverna and the third is the ever-popular BBQ night, hosted at the Angela Studios by the pool. For the remainder of the week, we can choose to stay in our resort or head into the capital, Zante Town which is a 25 minute drive away. Your resident Solos Tour Leader will be on hand to help with valuable local advice whatever you decide to do!
If you are looking for a day or two away from the sun loungers, you 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.
Our small, simple and friendly family owned property is ideally located in a quiet corner of Alykanas, surrounded by pine and olive trees and just minutes from the sandy beach. There are a number of bars, restaurants, convenience shops and a supermarket all located close by.
Facilities include a private outdoor swimming pool with loungers and umbrellas and new a poolside changing room with toilet and shower. Breakfast and lounge area, honesty bar and common outdoor gardens complete this lovely property.
Our pleasant rooms feature Air Conditioning (payable locally) a kitchenette with fridge and safety deposit box. The sleeping area is equipped with an LCD TV and a private balcony furnished with a small table and chairs. A number of hairdryers are available to hire (with an additional charge approx €10, payable locally) Free Wi-Fi is available throughout.
Transfer time from Zakynthos Airport to The Angela Studios – Alykanas is approximately 25-30 minutes.
You may wish to take an optional excursion during the course of your stay. Full details will be given at the Information Meeting. All tours should be paid for in euros. Credit cards are not accepted. The exact amount will be given at your Information Meeting. Your Tour Leader will help arrange these for you but may not necessarily accompany you.
There is often confusion on the question of gratuities, since it frequently depends on the type of holiday, location and, of course, your attitude towards tipping, as to what is normally expected. In order to give you a rough idea, we have given appropriate guidance below. Your Tour Leader will be on hand to offer advice or suggestions if required but gratuities are offered entirely at the sole discretion of the individual. We suggest a group collection to cover drivers, porters and hotel staff of €15.00 per week. Your Tour Leader will collect this on your behalf and distribute it accordingly, thus relieving you of the burden of who, when and how much to tip. The tipping of housekeeping will be left to your individual discretion (a small amount left in your room on departure should cover this and would be much appreciated). As is customary, ‘the hat’ will be passed around for the driver and guide on all optional excursions. For any meals that are not included in your itinerary, or taxi fares, your Tour Leader can advise of an appropriate % add on.
Casual, cotton, lightweight daytime wear is the order of the day. Comfortable shoes are a must for sightseeing. Smart casual clothes will be ideal for the evening. Early and late season evenings can be cool so do ensure that you take a cardigan or jacket and even some rainwear – particularly in May and June when you may experience some spring thunderstorms followed by scorching days!
