White House Studios

Rooms at the White House Studios share a big pool that comes with a popular bar that deals in daytime snacks and evening drinks. Guests also rave about the regular Greek nights.

The pool takes centre stage at the hotel and it gets busy during the day. It’s surrounded by well-kept gardens and it comes with a separate paddling pool for children.

The apartments are self-catering but you can get almost anything from the poolside bar. In the evening, attention turns to its classic cocktail menu and quizzes.

Overview of Alykanas

Zante is a picture-perfect island that boasts white-sand beaches that gently shelve into the Ionian Sea. On a holiday to Zante, you’ll be mesmerised by the beauty that surrounds you. The island is known as the Flower of the East, so expect lush vegetation, limestone cliffs and clear waters.

Although Zante is a cinematic paradise, there’s still plenty to keep the whole family busy near the White House Studios in Alykanas. Plus, because Zante’s only small, you’re not limited to one resort, so you can visit every attraction across the island.

Things to do in Zante

The White House Studios give you the best of both worlds. They’re in a quiet countryside spot, but they’re also only a short walk from the centre of Alykanas and the sandy beach.

Alykanas is a resort particularly popular with families. The village has a mini-golf course and kids can also let off some steam on the resort’s trampolines! For something different, they can even ride a horse or the whole family can take a trip to see a shipwreck.

Days on the beach are just as fun. You can hire pedalos, banana boats and inflatables. For something particularly adrenaline pumping, you can soar through the sky on a paragliding adventure.

With a stay in Zante, you can enjoy a traditional Greek break in the sunshine. The whole family will love every second of their stay in Alykanas.

Resort Summary

International dance festivals, extraordinary archaeological excavations and horse-drawn carriages are just a few of the reasons why tourists keep on returning to Alykanas.

Add children’s trampolines, biking, horse-riding and walking opportunities to the mix and you’ll soon get the picture – this resort has attractions to suit all ages and tastes. And Alykanas also has a long sandy beach lapped by the waves of the Ionian sea.

Alykanas is an intriguing place to go for your Greece holidays, not just for the attractions in the resort but also for its nearby underwater archaeological remains – a whole city that’s still being excavated. People have been exploring this region for centuries, it would appear. Of course contemporary visitors also have a wide range of modern shops and restaurants at their disposal.

Venture inland and you’ll be in Old Alykanas village, and the neighbouring resort of Alykes is only a 10-minute walk away along the beach. You can also use the charmingly named ‘trainiki’ train to venture inland and discover the joys of the olive groves, quaint traditional villages, the Vergagio folk art museum or the Vertzagias caves. Simply head down to Alykanas station to start your journey.
