Tinos cottage description

The cottage built after the 1953 earthquake has been lovingly restored in 2009 and is attached to the owners villa built at the same time. This imposing property commands panoramic sea views of the south of the Island from the Argassi Peninsulla to Keri with Marithanesi (turtle ) Island in the centre..On the hillside on the edge of the village of Lithakia the cottage is set in its own olive grove of over an acre with fruit trees, gardens and even chickens (fresh eggs are available)
The air conditioned cottage also has underfloor heating with a double bedroom, lounge/second bedroom with TV/DVD player and stereo. The modern kitchen is equiped with a cooker, washing machine, fridge, toaster, tea maker, coffee maker, steam iron, ironing board, cutlery, crockery and kitchen utensils. The luxury tiled bathroom has a WC, hand basin, bath and walk in shower. All linen and towels are provided. The large veranda is supplied with table and chairs with steps to the pool area.


ISLAND WALKING:
The walks on Zakynthos are some of the best in The Mediterranean. The routes normally follow the tracks used by the olive farmers and quite often you will not come across a single person on a walk of 15 kilometres.
In Spring and Autumn the hillsides are covered with many varieties of wild flowers and swooping buzzards complete the amazing scenery.
Walk round a corner and come across stunning views of the mountains and sea with dramtatic cliffs and caves, the walks on the Island are a truly memorable experience.
John will act either as your guide or supply you with detailed maps of the walks and how to get to the start point. This is without doubt the best way to discover and enjoy this beautiful Island. For more details go to www.nefis-travel.com (John is one of the guides)

CRAFTS
If you would like to learn how to knit, crochet or cross stitch Gillian will be happy to pass on her knowledge and experience.

OLIVE PICKING:
Fancy your hand at olive picking? From the 13th November to the 11th December 2010 you could come and stay completely free with meals included.
See what Island life is really about and go home with your own bottles of extra virgin olive oil.
You will earn your free stay, olive picking can only be decribed as hard work but a few days out in the clean Island air will guarentee to send anybody home fitter and healthier than when they arrived.(no previous experience with a chain saw required!)

EASTER:
Easyjet now fly direct to the island from the 27th March. Enjoy the beauty of the Island in spring and join in the Easter celebrations with roast lambs on the BBQ.

                                      On the edge of the village of Lithakia this is the perfect location for a peaceful and relaxing holiday. The pool area is shaded with olive and fruit trees for the hot summer days with hammocks, sun loungers and BBQ provided.

                                      The shops are just 3 minutes walk away with several tavernas also in the village. The sandy beaches of Liminaki and Agios Sostis are just 5 minutes away by car with beach bars and water sports provided. The Island is famous for its Loggerhead Turtles which can be seen in the summer months(just hire a pedalo) The clear blue waters are a delight to swim in and the Island has several blue flag beaches.

                                      The cottage is just 8 kilometres from the airport and 10 kilometres from Zakynthos (Zante) Town and ferry port with its lively bars and restaurants and the ornately decorated St Dennis's Church. For the energetic there are superb walks in the mountains with breathtaking views and bike rides (some more challenging than others).

                                      We are always available to help you.
