Olive Grove, Vineyards and the Shipwreck Beach

The first hike is a beautiful route on narrow paved lanes through lemon groves and vineyards. Immediately after leaving our accommodation, you’ll be walking underneath the shade of ancient olive trees. In the distance you will be able to see the spire of the small Ano Gerakari church, proudly built on top of a hill. This summit is our goal. We take a shaded path which meanders uphill and with every step the views become more spectacular.

DAY 3

Kayaking - Coast, Coves & Caves

Today we split into two groups and the first group travel to the small cape at Mikro Nisi with its beautiful interwoven coastline and deep blue sea. Firstly we receive our briefing from our professional instructor and launch the Kayaks. During this activity we visit the sulphur beaches and thermal springs of Xigia, take in the blue flag beach of Makris Giallos and along the way explore hidden caves with azure blue waters before arriving back at Alykanas where the second group take their turn and Kayak the route back to Mikro Nisi.

DAY 4

Yoga & Capoeira - Relax & Active

After breakfast we walk to the nearby Alykes Blue Flag beach and enjoy a morning of professionally led Yoga and Capoeira sessions. Our Yoga sessions will help us meditate, relax and find our inner calm. We then bring our morning to a close with our Capoeira session,  a gracious Afro -Brazilian martial art combined with aerobics, music and dance. The afternoon is at your leisure but make sure you build up an appetite for the included evening BBQ hosted at the Angela Studios . 

  • Breakfast and Dinner Included
DAY 5

Cycling - Village,Views & Cooking with the locals

After breakfast, we will receive our bicycles, each has 21 gears, which will help us conquer every hill on our path. This wonderful route over the fertile plain of the island is specially designed, running over narrow paved roads with the only congestion being the odd sheep or goat that may cross our path. We then enter the quaint village of Pigadakia where we’ll visit the local museum of Vertzagio. The owner and collector Spiros has gathered a barn full of Zakynthian items of past generations. Next break is at the organic farm of TherianosDimitri and his family will explain how they produce their olive oil.

DAY 6

Sailing - Swimming & Snorkelling

Early morning, we head off for Zakynthos town harbour and meet Captain Jorgos where we will board his sailing yacht. Our compass is set south, hopefully the winds are favourable to hoist sails and speed along with only the sound of the wind in our sails (sails hoisted depending on weather and sailing conditions) Near the Keri Caves we’ll anchor in a secluded cove and cool off by diving off the yacht. The crystal clear waters are ideal for snorkeling.

Around lunch time we’ll moor in the small port of Limni Keri where the best fresh fish of the islands is served and if we so wish we can take lunch (at own cost).

The Angela Studios

Our base for the week is a charming and friendly family owned property ideally located in the seaside village of Alykanas, and is a mere 200 metres level walk from the sandy Alykanas Beach. 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.  Surrounded by endless vineyards and olive groves, there are a few waterfront bars by the beach where one can sip on a refreshing drink or Greek cocktail in the evening and watch the sun go down.  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 a livelier evening there is a range of entertainment at the neighbouring resort of Alykes, which is just 1km away.

Facilities Include

Facilities include a private outdoor swimming pool with loungers and umbrellas, poolside changing room with toilet and shower. Breakfast and lounge area, honesty bar and common outdoor gardens complete this lovely property.
