Beach Holiday in Amoudi on the beautiful Greek Island of Zakynthos
We are staying at the small, family-run aparthotel Amoudi, located just 100 metres from a secluded sandy beach in the same-named traditional village of Amoudi. There is no better place to unwind and relax than an unspoilt and peaceful setting amidst lush green countryside and pretty wild flowers, away from the tourist masses.
The Amoudi is known throughout the area for the warm and welcoming approach of its owners, Pepi and Sakis, and you’ll feel part of the family from the moment you arrive. With just 24 apartments in this friendly hotel, our single parent families can relax in the knowledge that they are in like-minded company. Studio apartments come with a furnished balcony, kitchenette, ensuite bathroom, air conditioning, TV, refrigerator, safety deposit box and free WiFi and offer either a pool or a sea view.
Our hotel is set in lush gardens and has a good-sized pool with Jacuzzi and small children’s pool and is surrounded by sun loungers and parasols. There is a small play area for the children and a table tennis table in the grounds. Just behind the hotel are olive forests, and a small supermarket and many tavernas are only a few minutes’ walk away. The hotel offers breakfast, snacks and refreshments throughout the day. Dinner will be organised by your SPoH host in various different tavernas, including the hotel’s own seaside taverna ‘Kritamo’.
This is a beach holiday designed to allow guests to go their own way and relax on the beach. For any guests who do fancy some activities or excursions, our host will organise any of the following quickly and easily: These activities and excursions are available at a local surcharge and can be booked upon arrival:
- Water sports
- Horse riding
- A day-trip to the water park
- Turtle watching and boat trips
The secluded bay by the hotel with its crystal clear water is perfect for snorkelling so do take your snorkelling gear!
The holiday is offered on a bed & breakfast basis. For dinner our host will organise tables for our group at the hotel’s seaside Taverna Kritamo including a BBQ night and a range of other beachside restaurants a few minutes’ stroll away. For anyone who enjoys a drink before or after dinner, the hotel’s own bar is right opposite the apartment building.
Zakynthos is a very popular island in the eastern part of the Ionian Sea, just 20 km west of the Greek mainland. It boasts lush vegetation and beautiful sandy beaches. The most famous landmark is Navagio beach, a cove in the northwest of the island, isolated by high cliffs and accessible only by boat. The beach and sea floor are made of white pebbles, and surrounded by turquoise waters. Zakynthos is also famous for its numerous natural blue caves that are only accessible on a small boat.
One of the most popular beaches is Porto Roxa: a typically Greek rocky bay, with small streams emptying into the sea at its centre. Zakynthos is famous for all its mineral-rich waters bubbling up and fascinating geological formations on the beaches: Guests can try out the beach at Xygia, for instance, where the rocks are bright white because of the sulphur and minerals, and the water is not just a very special colour but also amazing for the skin! We’ll be staying at Amoudi beach, in the eastern part of Zakynthos. Our small, personal hotel is in a secluded bay away from other more touristy beaches. The water is crystal clear and perfect for snorkelling. The beach slopes gently into the water, making it ideal for children to play in. The more touristy resort of Alkiana, with its water sports at the beach and shops and restaurants, is a short taxi ride away.
