Brilliantly priced, and boasting a wonderful online reputation, the Athina Apartments in quiet, traditional Kalamaki could be just the value accommodation you’re looking for for your Greek island adventure this year.
Kalamaki’s main attraction is its enormous 5-km beach. There is some resort development – and loads of tavernas to dine and drink in – but it’s relatively low key, based around a traditional village centre that still has lots of traditional character. If you time your visit just right, you might be sharing the beautiful soft sands with rare loggerhead turtles, whose nesting trips are one of the great natural wonders of Europe.
The Athina Apartments have a laid-back feel them, nested in their own gardens with enough room between you and the local bars to guarantee good nights’ sleep for everyone. Mountain views offer another dimension to this tranquil location. The studios and apartments in this small complex are simple and clean and decorated in a traditional Greek style. All apartments boast flat-screen TVs, as well as self-catering facilities. The owners have a great reputation, and many of the services are all about friendly hospitality in the classic Mediterranean tradition. Reception offers lots of good, practical help including luggage storage. WiFi is availabe only in public areas, and access to the pool at a neighbouring hotel is also included in your price.
While Kalamaki offers quiet thrills, if you do want to go a bit wild then head off to neighbouring Laganas, where you’ll find a bustling nightlife scene. The rare turtles are protected with restrictions on water sports, but you’ll find all of those on offer at Vassilikos, which is easily reached from your apartment. Zante’s capital, Zante Town, is also an easy trip, offering some sophisticated shopping and pleasant water-front walks.
