Ivana & Dionisis are extremely accommodating and friendly. The apartment was clean, comfortable and perfectly appointed. The adjoining restaurant is small, but the food was fantastic.

One of the best vacations ever

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Makris Gialos was amazing. Ivana and Dionysis saw to every detail and were wonderful hosts. Their on-site Taverna was both rustic and delicious and their suggestions for activities on Zakynthos were spot-on. We cannot wait to return in future trips abroad and can't recommend these apartments enough. Many thanks, Ivana and Dionysis!

Preface--- this will be a long review of extensive praise. For those who won't read the whole thing and want a summary: STAY HERE.

My friend and I spent a week at the Makris Gialos Apartments and fell in love instantly upon arrival. The pictures provided are completely accurate and totally unedited, but the beauty of the images doesn't even compare to what it's like to actually be there. You are steps from the most insanely blue water you've ever seen, water you can see and hear from every apartment balcony. There are other restaurants within walking distance of the apartments, but the food is so good at the restaurant that we ate every meal there--- Ivana and Dionisis cook themselves, traditional Greek food, including fish caught and delivered every morning.

As hosts, Ivana and Dionisis are top--- friendly and helpful and totally accommodating. It was our first time in Greece, and Ivana got a sense of our taste right away, and every morning she suggested an activity that we always loved. She even remembered our dietary restrictions after being told once, and always prepared the food accordingly.

The property is immaculate. Very, very clean, beautiful and well-done (Dionisis built it himself!). It was paradise and I'm still dreaming about it. I'd recommend this place to anyone--- my family, friends, and total strangers.

You can get all your beach supplies and needs from shops within walking distance. And from the apartments you can snorkel and swim in many coves nearby. When we were there in June, we were often alone on all of these beaches. You're also a mere 15 minutes from the Blue Caves, and getting a boat to the famous Shipwreck beach from the apartments is very easy--- many, many options from small to large boat tours, and even renting your own.

You won't believe the quiet and calm and privacy of these apartments and location.

Do rent a car so you can explore the island, but you'll always be happy that you're staying at Makris Gialos and not in one of the party-oriented towns. Nice to be able to travel to those towns, but even nicer to be able to come home to Makris Gialos.

Stop searching and book this place now.

Thank you Ivana and Dionisis!!

Wunderschöne Anlage und sehr herzliche Atmosphäre

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben eine Woche in einem Superior Apartment verbracht und waren überwältigt. Die Bilder entsprechen der Realität. Die Apartments und Anlage sind top gepflegt und sehr sauber. Die Ausstattung der Küche ist perfekt. Der Blick vom Balkon ist einfach nur wow :-) Die Vermieter Ivana und Dionisis sind sehr herzlich und gastfreundlich. Sie stehen jederzeit für Fragen und Wünsche zur Verfügung. Die angeschlossene Taverne haben wir fast täglich besucht und auch hier fühlten wir uns sehr wohl. Die Speisen und Weine waren sehr lecker und von guter Qualität. Des Weiteren hat man einen Strand quasi vor der Tür, einen Minimarkt und auch weitere Tavernen sind fussläufig erreichbar. Ansonsten sollte man sich ein Auto mieten, um die Schönheit der Insel zu genießen. Sehr wehmütig sind wir abgereist. Wir sagen herzlichen Dank liebe Ivana und Dionisis für eine traumhafte Zeit! Ihr seid tolle Gastgeber!

Es waren vier unvergessliche Tage, die wir in Makris Gialos verbracht haben. Es ist ein Ort, wohin man wieder zurückkehren möchte. Ivana und Dionisis sind sehr nette und gastfreundliche Gastgeber, die alles tun, damit sich Ihre Gäste wohl fühlen. Die Apartments sind sehr sauber und geschmacksvoll, mit viel Liebe zu kleinen Details, eingerichtet. Im Restaurant werden sowie die europeischen als auch griechischen Gerichte, der köstliche hausgemachte Wein mit viel Liebe serviert.

Vielen herzlichen Dank!!!

Welcome to the picturesque beach of Makris Gialos on Zante! Your traditional zakynthian stone apartment is located right next to the beach and this brings you unparalleled recovery and joy of swimming directly in front of the door. The idyllic bay Xigia is only 2km away. The famous blue caves can be reached in just 10 minutes directly from your house beach by boat. The offers in the surrounding area are extremely varied and there are daily boats of all sizes and almost every hour from the port of Agios Nikolaos to your desired destination. The port of Agios Nikolaos is located 3km from Makris Gialos and brings you the opportunity to watch fishermen, to do your basic food purchases to make a ferry trip to Kefalonia (the next closest Ionian island) or even a trip to world famous Shipwreck beach with the imposing cliffs. The possibilities at sea and on land are endless. Nature lovers will feel prefectly fine on Zakynthos, whether you snorkel or go for a visit to a lovely animal and nature park (2km away), a great hike, visiting ancient monasteries or just the enjoyment in a secluded cove, swim, dive, surf or fishing ... It is entirely up to you how to spend the most beautiful days of the year. A holiday in the north of the island with its purity - far away from mass tourism and noise - will surely make you happy. Small, charming restaurants with great food can be reached in the immediate vicinity. Here a bar, there a traditional kafenio (coffee place) - you will find everything - except in lots or in bulk cheaper quality. The most important for last: The Sea ... Come and see yourself - a thousand descriptions cannot express the beautiful, clear blue ionian sea with its lonely bays in our Makris Gialos area ...

Book immediately or call us if you need further information. We are at your disposal for any questions you might have.

Sincerely, Ivana & Dionisis Pyromalis
