About the property

Votsalo is a seaside resort at Alykes bay. A peacefull place with a private sea.

Votsalo is a seaside resort at Alykes bay in the Eastern part of Zakynthos. Driving through a wonderful olive grove you will find yourself in a quiet and peaceful spot where you will be able to enjoy the beauty of the mountains and at the same time the tranquillity of a private beach. The location is ideal due to a combination of desirable isolation and easy access to the fully equipped village center.

The votsalo resort is located at Alykes of Katastari. Alykes, which means salt lake, is known for the long coastline with beautiful, sandy beaches and warm, shallow, crystal clear waters. It is also one of the most well-organized areas of Zakynthos offering a plethora of exciting water sports, trips to the world famous shipwreck and blue caves, vibrant night life, delicious local food, carriage rides with horses, ideal for families and couples. The village center provides all kinds of services like supermarket, cafe, restaurants, pharmacies, public health center etc.

The votsalo resort is developed on two levels. The main building which is a semi-finished new construction lies on the upper level offering an amazing view where you are able to see the sun rising from the sea. At the lower level extends a 500 m² open space suitable for relaxation, reading, enjoying the sun and playing games. Sunbeds, umbrellas, beach tennis rackets, canoe kayak, masks for diving, wind surf and inflatable water toys are at your disposal. You will have the unique opportunity to experience the convenience of your almost private sea.

The apartment consists of two master bedrooms with double beds, a fully equipped open-plan kitchen and a bathroom. The place is accommodated with air-conditioning and free Wi-Fi access. Free parking and washing machine are also available.

Upon your arrival you will find the apartment with a clean set of bed linen for each bed and a clean set of towels (for body, face and feet) for each guest. You can clean the apartment by yourself since everything you need for cleaning is provided (broom, dustpan, mop etc). You will be provided with a clean set of bed linen and clean towels every five days. Please bring your own towel for the beach.

Zante's landscape variety provides a wonderful scenery of traditional villages in the mainland, where you can explore mediterranean architecture, wineries and extended olive groves. You can taste the local wines, raisins, oil, food and desserts. The Southeast part of the island is characterized by beautiful, sandy, well- organized beaches with warm, shallow waters, such as Gerakas beach (one of the last protected areas in the world for the Caretta-Caretta turtle), Banana beach, Azzuro beach, Alykes and Alykanas. In the northwestern part of Zante the ionian sea sculpts the edges of the island forming breathtaking beaches such as the world's famous Shipwreck Cove, the Blue Caves,Porto Limnionas and Porto Roxa.

A beautiful, tastefully decorated apartment

  • 5 of 5

Votsalo 1 is situated in a peaceful part of Alykes, minutes from the town but enjoying peace and quite in its location. The apartment has two good sized bedrooms with excellent storage space - fully fitted wardrobes - not usually found in holiday apartments or hotels. Both rooms have very comfortable beds with crips white linens. The bathroom has a wonderful shower and is spotless - as is the rest of the property. The kitchen and living area is a delight! All newly fitted out with everything you could possibly need including a very snazzy oven. The attention to detail is first class. We enjoyed sitting on the patio (beautiful furniture, of course - chairs, table, loungers) for breakfast in the sunshine overlooking a garden and out to sea. Then again with a glass of wine in the evening as the sun was going down. Kostas' family was so very welcoming and we thank then very much for their kindness. It was also lovely to be greeted by Natalia, Kostas' friend who kindly gave us lots of information about the area to help us enjoy our stay in Alykes. Thank you to all. We hope to return soon!

A fantastic week in a lovely apartment, with amazing views, and a great location. Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

The location was perfect, within 10 mins walking to the centre of Alykes, and handy for touring the rest of the island which we chose to do with quad bikes. The apartment has everything you need, with the bonus of a fantastic welcome and hospitality of Kostas" family. It was great to know that we could get information, and advice on our travels easily. The apartment is well equipped, great wifi! Comfortable and very modern. There is loads of room to relax on the sun beds provided on the terrace, and just take in the views around you of the mountains behind and the sea which is a few steps away. Whilst the beach is stony in a few steps you are into a shallow sandy bay.

For us the location on the island was great as we went to visit villages in mountains and across the other side of the island easily on the quads, and in a short time.

The garden area provides another alternative seating area with its swing bed, vines (with loads gorgeous grapes), and access to free inflatable toys, raft, balls etc to enjoy. We also borrowed the push bikes which again are provided for anyone's use, should you feel energetic enough. In summary we had a great time in Zante, and this was definitely on part due to where we stayed, and the Greek welcome we received. Thank you Kostas and family, we hope to return some day!

Direkt am Strand: Tolles Apartment

Wir haben eine Woche in diesem top ausgestatteten Apartment sehr genossen. Es fehlt an nichts. Über die Terasse mit Meerblick geht's in wenigen Stufen direkt zum Strand.

Die Vermieter sind total nett.

Fantástica situación . Frente al mar y en una zona tranquila.

  • 5 of 5

Apartamento ideal. Muy limpio y con todo lo necesario. Kostas y su familia son muy amables y están pendientes de todos los detalles. Tienen a tu disposición tumbonas , colchonetas y flotadores para hacer tu estancia todavía más agradable . El mar es muy tranquilo y poco profundo. Caminando 5 minutos llegas a la zona de restaurantes y souvenirs .

appartamento nuovo e fresco, molto piacevole la terrazza con accesso diretto al mare cristallino

  • 4 of 5

Soggiorno molto piacevole nelle due prime settimane di Luglio,descrizione corrispondente alla presentazione. Proprietari ospitali davvero gentili discreti e disponibili che ci hanno accolto con grande simpatia.Posto tranquillo.Molto godibili gli spazi circostanti,doccia, lettini, ombrelloni, canotti. Spiaggetta ghiaiosa, mare con fondo sabbioso che degrada dolcemente in acque limpide. Vacanza decisamente rilassante con aria di mare e di collina ma anche per la vicinanza ai servizi essenziali.Siamo rimaste molto soddisfatte del nostro soggiorno.Lucia
