Apartment at the magnificent beach of Makris Gialos Zakynthos
average rating of 5.0 based on 4 reviews

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!!

Tolle Unterkunft, nette Gastgeber, schöne Gegend

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren im Juni für 3 Tage in Makris Gialos und haben uns dort sehr wohlgefühlt. Die Vermieter sind sehr herzlich und zuvorkommend, das Apartment an sich sehr gut ausgestattet, der Blick vom großen Balkon fantastisch. Es fehlte uns an nichts! Nur 5 Gehminuten entfernt befindet sich eine sehr hübsche Badebucht (Kiesel). In diesem Bereich befindet sich auch ein kleiner Supermarkt. Unmittelbar neben dem Apartmenthaus kann man in der von den Vermietern geführten Taverne lecker essen. Es gibt auch noch 2 weitere Tavernen, die fußläufig in 5 Minuten zu erreichen sind. Als Ausgangspunkt für Ausflüge hat sich Makris Gialos auch als sehr geeignet herausgestellt. Vom nur 10 Minuten Autofahrt entfernten Agios Nikolaos kann man Bootstouren zu den Blue Caves (wunderschön) und dem Shipwreck Beach (überwätigend) unternehmen. Agios Nikolaos ist auch der größte Ort in dieser Gegend, mit zahlreichen Restaurants und 2 Supermärkten. Auch die Fähre nach Kefalonia startet von dort. Wir haben in den beiden zur Verfügung stehenden Tagen den gesamten Norden und Nordwesten erkundigt, der touristisch noch nicht so überlaufen ist wie der Süden der Insel. Wir können auf jeden Fall die Makris Gialos Beach Apartments zu 100 % weiterempfehlen.

Wunderschöne Apartments in toller Lage

  • 5 of 5

Wir hatten uns für Makris Gialos entschieden, weil wir etwas abseits vom Trubel wohnen wollten. Die Lage ist sehr gut geeignet als Ausgangspunkt für Touren über die Insel. Wenn man mal faul sein möchte, gibt es schöne Strände in unmittelbarer Umgebung. Wir wurden sehr herzlich willkommen geheißen und wurden während unseres Aufenthalts besonders im hervorragenden Restaurant sehr verwöhnt. Unser Superior-Apartment war sehr schön, sauber und gut ausgestattet. Wir haben uns dort sehr wohl gefühlt und können eine uneingeschränkte Empfehlung aussprechen.

A wonderful week in Makris Gialos

A wonderful week in Makris Gialos

Our first stay in one of the appartements of Dionisios and Ivana on Zakynthos will always come back to us as an ultimately relaxing week and a terrific introduction to this beautiful Ionian island. Our hosts received us with great hospitality and

the appartement was of an amazing quality and atmosphere. Mornings in the sun on the balcony, afternoons at the intimate beach and evenings under the olive tree on the terrace next to our front door. And to top all this up, in their restaurant

To Petrino at the foot of the steps we enjoyed the tasteful dishes and the fresh olive-oil of the family. Visiting the north of the island with its mountains and trees, its calm and peace, and the care of Ivana and Dionisios for us was a great experience.

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 (coffe place), a bakery - 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 can not tell about 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
