Edelweiss Hotel

You get the best of both worlds at the Edelweiss Hotel, as the hotel has a convenient location and a peaceful atmosphere.

The rooms look out towards a central courtyard where there’s a big swimming pool, a cluster of sunbeds and a scattering of floor lanterns.

Close to the pool area, there’s a snack bar. Breakfast is available here each morning and it serves drinks and snacks throughout the day. It’s also the setting for the weekly barbecue, where music and dancing is laid on.

Overview of Argassi

Zante is a picture-perfect retreat that’s a favourite with Hollywood filmmakers. The beaches are regularly voted as being some of the best on the planet, and the limestone cliffs provide a dramatic backdrop. The island’s also small enough to explore entirely on your holiday to Zante, so you’ll have your choice of family-friendly resorts as well as quieter, traditional villages.

The Edelweiss Hotel is in Argassi, a beautiful seaside village that’s set at the foot of Mount Skopos. The narrow, shingle beach has great views out over the Ionian Sea, and Argassi offers the perfect balance between relaxation, local culture and adventurous days out.

Things to do in Zante

The Edelweiss Hotel is in a peaceful area of Argassi, tucked among gardens seeded with palms and fruit trees. But, a 10-minute walk will take you to the village centre and the beach, so it’s easy to explore.

The centre of the village is compact, so it has a lively atmosphere. Everything’s based on one main road, so it’s easy to find what you need. There’s always something going on in the beach bars, too!

Zante Town is only a 10-minute drive away. Venetian architecture and ornate churches are dotted around busy squares here, and you can spend a day strolling around the harbour before enjoying an evening meal.

An island that’s packed to the rafters with outstanding natural beauty, Zante is a destination where a camera is a must-pack essential.
