Overview of Tsilivi

On a holiday to Zante, many visitors choose to spend their time on the coast, surrounded by the soft sands and the clear waters. But, because Zante is about the same size as the Isle of Wight, it’s perfect to explore. If you head inland after leaving the Contessina Hotel, you’ll quickly discover vineyards, mountains and traditional hamlets.

On the coast, Zante is picture perfect. There’s mile after mile of white sand, plus the beaches are unique spots because they’re one of the few places in the world where loggerhead turtles nest.

Things to do in Zante

You’ll find the Contessina Hotel in the family-favourite destination of Tsilivi. There’s a reason why families love it so much here: the beach! It’s just a short stroll away from the hotel, and on this Blue Flag-accredited stretch of sand, you’ll find calm and shallow waters perfect for paddling.

Away from the beach, there are plenty of activities to keep everyone happy, including mini-golf, ten-pin bowling and child-friendly bars and restaurants.

If you’re travelling without children, then you can make the most of Tsilivi’s up-and-coming nightlife destinations. As the sun goes down, the main street comes alive with live music bars, traditional pubs and nightclubs. Plus, for something even livelier, the party destination of Zante Town is only a 20-minute taxi journey away.

Whether you’re looking for an idyllic holiday or something action packed, Zante is the place to be!
