Going to Zante this year and struggling to find 1 bedroomed self catering apartment, most appear to be studios, going with hubby and son 14 so want apartment with a bedroom. I will need my space if you know what I mean. Also where to stay can not decide keep getting different views, I want to go to Corfu but they want to try Zante so I gave in this year so I get my own way next year! Wink

My firm favourite is Old Alikanas but might be too quiet for you son LOL It is however within walking distance of other places where nightlife exists other than the odd bar and a few tavernas

If you fancy it do a Google for apartments in Old Alikanas, you come up with several one bedroomed places

We used to go with Direct Greece but sadly they do not go there any more

Slightly more lively, but not much although it does have a diving school, is Keri, you might find some independents to book there with a search. We stayed in a lovely place, just one block back from the sea which had peacocks strutting round the garden but sadly I cannot remember what it was called

It really depends on what you want  and like, my idea of heaven is another's idea of boredom!!

Thanks for your reply, funny was looking at Alykanas yesterday, looks nice and not far from the old village is that right. Know for sure not to stay in Laganas in July/August although Son and hubby are willing x

Yes Alikanas is fairly near to Old Alikanas, a good walk, but worlds apart.

I am assuming your son wants a bit of night life and hubby would not mind either so Alikanas may be a good compromise

We stayed in Alykanas a few years ago..We walked to Old Alykanas everyday. Loved the beach and the Taverna on the beach...(Well up a few steps). Used to take us about 20 mins to walk.I t was the last week in May so not to hot. Stayed in Alakanas at night though.

Hi Sedgi,

Take a look at the Alykanas beach Apart hotel...It's in a very good spot. Check it out on Trip Advisor.

We stayed at the Valais Hotel which is right on the beach, great location for walking into Alykanas or Old Alykanas but its not self catering.  www.valais.gr. They were with Thomas Cook up until last year but now I think its independant bookings only. Lots of watersports to keep a teenager occupied. The Mill Bar next door does a fabulous Greek night as well.

I stayed at the Dinos Apartment in Tsilivi just 5 minutes away from the beach in a quiet part of town. The host Dinos was fantastic. Well recommended.
3 weeks to go till Paradise.
