Zante | Zakynthos 2015








Hey my lovelies! 

How is everyone!? If your following me on Instagram (here) I would of already bombarded your feeds with posts from my holiday to Zakynthos. I thought I would write a little review full of the details on our trip.

We booked our trip with Abborts (here) in South Woodford London, with a lovely girl called Alexis. When we approached Alexis to help us book a holiday we had no idea where we wanted to go or how much it would cost. Ideally we were looking to spend no more than £1500 for the trip but were also looking for a short flight, white sandy beaches and blue waters. We only had a week and didn't want to suffer from jet lag. It was Alexis that first recommended Zante to us and at first I was apprehensive, the only things I had ever heard about Zante was that it was a party destination. A bit wild. I know i'm only 26, but i'm just not that kind of girl. The idea of trolling the "strip", one euro shots and late nights give me the chills! Alexis assured me that this wasn't the case and spent a good thirty minuets going through all the different area's and attractions. We finally settled on a destination. we booked with Olympic Holidays and went for a resort called Tsillivi, quieter than the main party town of Laganas, but still with its own town, restaurants and bars etc. We booked to stay at a hotel called the Manousis Studios, five minuets walk away from the long sandy beaches. The whole holiday including flights cost £968 for both of us at peak season! (August) What a bargin!






And so on the 20th August we took our Germania flight from Gatwick to Zante and the adventure began. The flight was about 3 hours and we arrived at our hotel by 2pm (Athens time). We literally dumped our bags, made a quick change and headed straight to the beach. Tsilivi beach is literally a paradise. The waters are shallow for a good while making it perfect for families, weak swimmers and  relaxing in the warm water. The part we used the most had three beach bar and restaurants, each with loungers you could rent for six Euro for the spot (pair).

The second day we were there we had a meeting with our Olympic Holiday representative Hannah Sheldon, who spent a good hour with us organising our day to day excursions. This was awesome because it meant we didn't need to worry about finding our own way around the island and wasting time. We also didn't need to worry about renting a car. Olympic Holidays and Hannah were fantastic at making sure we had literally everything we needed.







During our stay we managed to fit in a awful lot of activities! All organised by Olympic Holidays.
We got to take a day cruise to Ship Wreck bay and swim spots a long the way. Visit the Keri Keri caves and Turtle Island. We went turtle spotting. Had a day at the Water Village and go on a day Jeep safari around the island, which included wine tasting, seeing the highest point on the island and Ship Wreck Bay cliffs, a boat ride to the Blue Caves and numerous swim spots. And numerous snorkelling and beach opportunities. These were just a few of the activities on offer, and I only wish I had of booked two weeks rather than one!

I cant express how magical this holiday was for us. It was such a fun filled adventure and exactly what we needed. And I cant recommend Alexis, Abbotts, and Olympic Holiday enough. I'll leave all links below if you wanted to check them out yourselves and I hope you enjoy the video I made too!!
