This product is hot off the press, the latest addition to the newly published set of maps by the Greek publishing company "Terrain Cartography". This 1:50 000 scale map of the Island of Zante is designed to be ideal for both motoring and hiking. The map is 100% field researched by the cartographer. This is the first accurate and reliable map issued for Zakynthos. This is the first tourist map of Zakynthos created using GIS satellite technology - the geodetic reference system WGS 84. This high-precision topographic technology enables the mapping to reflect a unique wealth of information with clarity and definition. Dozens of roads, unfamiliar deserted beaches, even major attractions like the Byzantine monastery of Panagia Skopiotissas, have now appeared on a map of the island, for the first time! Includes a city map showing all new walkways, squares, traffic directions, hotels, local attractions etc. This product is completely waterproof and rip-proof. Each beach, even the tiniest cove, with all their individual features are identified, this was acheived by circumnavigation by boat. For each beach, whether it is sandy or pebbled, shaded or sunny, if it has a beach bar, offers water sports, umbrellas or sun beds, and whether the seabed just off the beach is rocky or sandy. (Very useful for anyone sailing or boating). The boundaries of the Natura 2000 are shown, this shows which part of the island is of outstanding natural beauty, to help you enjoy your trip. (In these areas please pay particular attention to the protection of the area!). Specially outlined is the National Marine Park of Zakynthos, one of the most important nesting grounds for the sea turtle Caretta caretta. The reverse is also colour printed, giving a concise travel guide to the island. Includes info on the history and mythology of the island, its geography and environment, the society and economy of the island, and its main attractions. Useful telephone numbers are also provided.
Advantages: Lovely hotel with excellent service, on the beach. Disadvantages: Nothing significant
...hot and humid.
As I love Grecian holidays I thought a holiday on the Greek island of Zakynthos (also known as Zante) might suit myself and my husband.
I had already stayed in three of the Louis group hotels in fact three times in one, and have always been impressed, and so I thought it might be a good idea to try another Louis hotel in Zante.
I chose the Louis Zante Beach Hotel...
Advantages: Beautiful+clean rooms Disadvantages: Dogs roaming about the place
...This is a fantastic hotel - great for families.
the staff are very friendly who bend over backwards to help you. There is a beautiful terraced restaurant looking out over the lovely gardens, serving up a wide range of food to suit every taste. Everything is so clean and tidy and well looked after.
The pool is small-ish but perfectly suitable as the most amazing beach is so close i.e. 5...
Advantages: Well situated, feels safe, good value for money Disadvantages: Maid service, Bees, kitchen in rooms were very basic
...Me and my boyfriend stayed at the Hotel Letsos in Alykanas, Zante in August/September 2008 after booking thtough Olympic Holidays. We'd read a lot of mixed reviews so we didnt really know what to expect!
I'm not sure how much the hotel cost on its own, but we paid around £400 each for flights and accommodation for 2 weeks. Depending on what your looking for, we found it to be OK for us...
