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.

Beautiful apartment and view

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely holiday here with our 2 young children. The apartment is really well furnished and the gorgeous warm sea down some steps. The sea is shallow for a long way. We enjoyed using the kayak’s provided by the apartment. Kostas’ family were all incredibly kind and welcoming.

Situated at the waters edge sunrise to view every morning

  • 5 of 5

I was a little apprehensive because there was no reviews being a new property, so for us it was a little risk, I'm glad to report the two weeks we had were fab, just a little walk into Alykes strip which we all enjoyed anyway, the family that lived and worked close were all lovely, even brought over a little home cooking and always very pleasant, our bed was a little firmer than we are used to but the children were fine, over all a friendly place to stay in Alykes with a wonderful sea view, we would love to visit again... Well done :-)

Owner's Response: Richard and his family are very alive people. They grasp life and they travel a lot. It was a pleasure to have them as guests and exchange opinions. Richard was always smiley and in good mood and ready to talk to you about his experiences.

Owner's Response: Sarah and her wondeful family are the perfect guest you could ever have. They are warm, positive and enthusiastic people. They accidentaly lost a ball that we had given them and they immediately bought us a new one! They were quiet and discreet and they left the apartment very clean and tidy. We will be very happy to see them again.

Amazing Rental with Stunning Views

  • 5 of 5

I honestly cannot say enough good things about our stay at Votsalo 2.

It was our first time visiting a Greek Island and we will be back!

The apartment was immaculate and well stocked and the owners were very gracious and accommodating!

Everything you need is walking distance (approx. 10 mins) from the apartment including a grocery and shops to pick up any incidentals, as well as a place to book any excursions you might want to take.

We booked a boat tour to Shipwreck Beach and the pick up was only a 15 min walk from the apartment.

There is a gorgeous view of the sunrise every morning from your balcony and you have your own beach access!

If you are looking for a relaxing place to stay on the island with all of the comforts of home, this is it!!

Echt top!

  • 5 of 5

De ontvangst bij het appartement was zeer aangenaam en de eigenaar regelde voor de rest ook alles goed.

Het appartement ziet er goed onderhouden uit en is mooi modern ingericht en beschikt over alles wat je nodig hebt.

Je kan lekker genieten van het uitzicht vanaf je balkon of achter het appartement lekker relaxen op een van de bedden, om vervolgens binnen een paar stappen de zee in te lopen..

Zeker genoten van ons verblijf!

Wunderbarer Urlaub!!!

  • 5 of 5

Die Ferienwohnung ist wie auf den Bildern - sehr sauber und außerordentlich modern und geschmackvoll eingerichtet. Wunderbar ist auch der große Balkon mit Blick auf das Meer sowie die Sonnenaufgänge. Der Garten kann mitgenutzt werden und Parkplätze sind vorhanden. Zum Kieselstrand braucht man nur die Treppe hinuntergehen. Das Wasser hatte im Juni 25 Grad - ein Traum. In näherer Umgebung gibt es jede Menge Restaurants sowie Einkaufsmöglichkeiten. Ein Mietwagen ist zu sinnvoll, um die vielen schönen Strände und Aussichtspunkte auf der Insel zu erkunden.

Ein ganz besonderes Lob gilt der Familie von Kostas, sehr sympathische und nette Leute! Wir wurden mit selbstgemachten Kuchen versorgt und für unseren Sohn gab es jede Menge Spielzeug zur Mitbenutzung.

Wir können die Unterkunft sehr empfehlen und bedanken uns für die Gastfreundschaft!
