Hotels with swimming pools

Hotels with swimming pools

Ancient Greeks and Romans  built artificial pools οn purposes of athletic training in the palaestras, nautical games and military exercises. Roman emperors owned private swimming pools in which fish were also kept, therefore one of the Latin words for a pool was piscine( pesche = fish). The first heated swimming pool was built by Gaius Maecenas of Rome in the 1st century BC. Gaius Maecenas was a rich Roman lord being considered the ‘’father’’ of arts.

“Must knows” when visiting Zakynthos for the first time


“Must knows” when visiting Zakynthos for the first time

Are you visiting Zakynthos for the first time this summer? We know that nobody likes getting unpleasant surprises on their holidays. That’s why ZanteHotels4u will give you the most important and useful things you need to know to prepare yourself for an amazing summer on our beautiful island!

v The toilet system on Zakynthos is not as developed as in most other countries. As a result, you can’t throw any toilet paper into the toilet. There are bins next to the toilets where you can throw away your toilet paper. Since this is not a common habit for tourists, you are reminded by the stickers above the toilets.
Sign above the toilets in Greece


v Tap water is not drinkable anywhere on the island. You will need to buy water from the supermarket. The price for a six-pack of 1,5 liter bottles is about €1,50-€2,00.
v Zakynthos has quite a lot of mosquitoes. Although they are not dangerous, they surely are annoying. It would be wise to take a spray or cream with you in order to protect yourself from waking up with a lot of bites. If you are already here and you forget to take this with you, you can always buy it in one of the many pharmacies on the island.
v There is no public transport from the airport to other parts of the island. The only way to get from the airport to your accommodation is by taxi or by renting a vehicle yourself.
There are local buses (KTEL) running from Zakynthos Town to other parts of the island, like Laganas, Kalamaki and Tsilivi.
v The tickets for the ferry that goes from Agios Nikolaos (Zakynthos) to Pessada (Kefalonia) are not bookable online. You will just need to drive to the port and buy your tickets on the spot.
v Not all the shops and restaurants in Zakynthos accept credit cards. Although the number of places that do accept them is rising, it’s a good idea to have cash with you anytime.
v The infrastructure in Zakynthos might not be as good as you’re used to at home. Of course you have to note that there are mountains on the island and also hairpin turns. In Greece we drive on the right side of the road.

v Driving around in Zakynthos is a really nice way to explore the island. You only need to realize that the traffic here might be different than in your home country. Some Greek drivers drive like they’re the only ones on the road. You can surely go around the island by car or bike, but just pay attention!
v Most of the Greek drivers don’t pay attention to zebra crossings so they won’t stop for you when you want to cross the road. Be careful that the road is free before you cross it.
v On Zakynthos we have 220V electricity and to charge your devices you will need a continental plug.
v The eating hours of the Greeks are different than in many other countries. On Zakynthos they will eat lunch at about 3 in the afternoon and dinner after 9.
v And last but not least, a tip from locals! If you wish to visit Zakynthos town, we would like to advice all women not to wear heels on the square. The tiles will give you a hard time, trust us…

ZanteHotels4u hopes now nothing is in the way to spend unforgettable holidays on our island!

Dennis Houses & Tavern - Our special accommodation of the week



Dennis Houses & Tavern 

Our special accommodation of the week

Every week ZanteHotels4u proudly presents you a special accommodation with owners that deserve a closer look. Not because they have big hotels and welcome many guests, but because we as a team love their hospitality and how they treat their guests. This week in the spotlight: Dennis Houses & Tavern in Tsilivi. 

 
Pigi, the owner of ZanteHotels4u, together with Dennis
The most important thing that is special about Dennis Houses is the hospitality of the owners; Dennis and Maria.
They want to make sure that their guests spend amazing holidays. In their opinion this is not by offering super deluxe rooms with jacuzzi and champagne, but by offering simple but comfortable rooms and Greek wine

They welcome you with a package of Greek products, consisting of softdrinks, water, bread, eggs, ham & cheese, marmalade, coffee, tea and sugar. They think it’s important to provide this so that their guests have a comfortable arrival in a country that is not their own. 


It's logic that guests are tired after a trip to Zakynthos. We give them a welcome package so that they can have their first drinks and meal in order to have a good start of the holidays. After this, they are ready to explore Zakynthos!

The Dennis Houses consist of studios for 2 or 3 guests and 2 houses, ideal for families. The houses and studios are located opposite of Dennis pride; his traditionally Greek Tavern



Dennis Tavern

Here he serves breakfast from 8 to 10 in the morning, of course in Greek style.
If you would like to try his breakfast, you can expect the following:
Bread, butter, marmalade, fried eggs with bacon and sausages, yoghurt, tomatoes and olives and every day Dennis and his wife will treat you something extra: tyropita (=cheese pie), spanakopita (=spinach pie) or bougatsa (=cream pie) They want to make sure that you will taste the real Greece and that you won’t be hungry soon!

From 13:00 to midnight, the tavern is open for lunch or dinner (or both.…) Dennis serves Zakynthian dishes with meat or fish on the grill. He will make sure that this will be an experience, so he will let you eat “the traditional way” as he explains in the following quote:

“Lamb chops shouldn’t be eaten with a knife and fork. I don’t give my guests a knife and fork, but show them how we eat it here in Greece: by hand. After they are satisfied with their meal, I will bring them a bowl with water so that they can wash their hands. My guests appreciate that I want to make them feel like a local. It is important to me that I show my guests that they are in Greece, and not in any other country.”

Dennis and his wife describe themselves as simple but good and very hospitable people. It makes them happy when they see that their guests are having a good time choosing the real Greek hospitality and traditions, rather than the big all-inclusive hotels.
Dennis also produces homemade olive oil, olives and wine. For the guests that would like to take these products home as memories of their amazing stay at Dennis Houses, there is good news: These homemade products are for sale.

For the people that are interested after reading about these hospitable persons, I will give some information about the studios and houses.

There are 2 renovated studios for 2-3 guests that have all the facilities you need for a comfortable stay. They consist of a double bed and a single bed, and if you have the wish to have 3 single beds, Dennis will grant it! There is a kitchen with all the facilities to cook your meals (and if you’re not in the mood to cook, you just cross the street!) and a private bathroom. Of course there is air-conditioning to cool down after a day in the Greek sun

Dennis also has 2 houses named after his children; Spyros and Spyridoula.

* Spyridoula can accommodate up to 7 guests in 3 different bedrooms. It has a fully equipped kitchen to practice your cooking skills with the local products, a bathroom and a balcony all around the house, so that you can find shade at every moment of the day. For your comfort, everything is located on one floor.
* Spyros can accommodate up to 6 guests in 3 bedrooms. This house is ideal for families, since 2 bedrooms have bunk beds. Downstairs there are a spacious kitchen and living room and a separate toilet with washing machine, so that you don’t need to walk upstairs when you have just installed yourself on the couch. The three bedrooms are upstairs. The master bedroom has an ensuite bathroom, while the other two bedrooms share a bathroom. 


ZanteHotels4u loves the philosophy of Dennis and Maria. Being hospitable and making sure that guests have a good time is something everyone should strive for.
