Argassi holidays transport you to a large resort in the south-east of the Greek island of Zante. This popular resort is within easy walking distance of Zante Town along a pleasant coastal route. The resort lies around a wide bay and is framed by Mount Skopos. Built on a gradient and rising up the hillside, if walking is a problem, you will need to choose your accommodation with care and make sure you are close to the beach. Argassi holiday offers have wide appeal. It seems the resort caters for all age groups from young families to older couples, as well as young singles. It is easy to see why. The long sand and shingle beach lapped by clear, warm waters is ideal for those with young children; the variety of water sports including paragliding and water skiing appeal to young adults looking for excitement, as does the lively nightlife along the waterfront; couples are generally pleased with the proximity of Zante Town.
Although there are hotels, Argassi accommodation mainly comes in the form of self catering apartments. Since nightlife is at its liveliest along the central beach area, if you wish for more relaxed evenings, avoid this area. The accommodation reaches high standards with good amenities. You never have far to go to buy provisions as minimarts appear to be on every corner. Restaurants abound and cater for all. Those seeking familiar fare can always find eateries catering for the more conservative British palate. It would however be a pity to deny yourself the tastes of Greece. If you are new to the flavours of Greece, order Mezes, the equivalent of Spanish tapas, and you'll be given a selection of tasty bites, an ideal introduction to the island's cuisine. Local wines are very pleasant and offer good value. When it comes to holiday shopping, with Zante Town on the doorstep, you are in for a treat.
The island has many tourist attractions and sightseeing opportunities. Apart from Zante Town, the most well known is the wreck in Smugglers Cove. Although it can be seen from the viewing platform on the cliffs above, it looks its best when pictured from the sea. The Church of the Virgin Mary of Skopiotissas, built in 1624, sits on the mountain peak. Surrounded by the ruins of a monastery, it is well worth a trip. For golfers, there is a course in the vicinity. If you wish to spend time exploring the many gems that the island has to offer, car hire is recommended.
