The Filoxenia gets rave reviews from guests thanks to its funky interiors, friendly staff and beach-bound minibus.

Everything about the hotel is contemporary – think white, minimalist-style interiors and bedrooms with bright accents. Outside, two pools are sunk into the terrace. One’s even paired with a bar where you can sip drinks and enjoy mountain views.

The restaurant effortlessly blends international dishes and Greek favourites. At the bar, you can fill up on snacks between meals.

The hotel puts on entertainment most nights. Head to the al fresco terrace by the pool to see what’s happening.

Overview of Tsilivi

Zante is a cinematic paradise that’s home to one of the most photographed beaches in Greece. A location that’s all about beauty, on a holiday to Zante you’ll be welcomed by white-sand beaches, clear waters and limestone cliffs.

Thanks to its mild Mediterranean climate, the island also gained the nickname ‘the flower of the east’, so expect rich vegetation and stunning mountain ranges dotted with traditional villages. Tsilivi and the island’s capital of Zante Town also welcome party-goers. Zante is bright and beautiful, but larger resorts like these encourage you to party the night away.

Things to do in Zante

The Filoxenia has clinched a quiet spot just outside Tsilivi. The beach and the resort centre are both just a 10-minute stroll away, plus the hotel puts on a free mini bus to the sands.

The beach in Tsilivi showcases idyllic Zante at its very best. The only things disturbing the tranquil waters are the jet skis that whiz holidaymakers across the surface.

For family-friendly fun, head to the open-air Tsilivi Waterpark where you can shoot down slides, lounge in the lazy river or dip in the Jacuzzi. And for a day of exploration, Zante Town is only a 20-minute taxi ride away.

A stay at the Filoxenia allows you to experience the best of Zante. You’ll leave with the holiday smile you’ve always dreamed of.

Resort Summary

Once a small, traditional fishing village, Tsilivi is now second only to Laganas in terms of size and nightlife. Fringed with pine trees and olive groves, the bustling resort has become a popular destination with families and party-goers looking for a cheap Zante holiday with a difference.

Families will enjoy the Blue Flag-accredited beach with its shallow, calm water that is perfect for paddling. The resort also benefits from a multitude of other fun activities including a fantasy mini-golf course set in beautiful gardens complete with dinosaur statues and water features. There are plenty of quieter, child-friendly bars and restaurants away from the wild party scene, and the bowling alley offers neon-lit, late-night games.

In recent years Tsilivi has gained a reputation for great nightlife – as the sun goes down the main street comes alive with live music bars, traditional pubs and nightclubs which provide a fantastic evening for everyone.

You’ll find food to fit all dining budgets and tastes in Tsilivi, from international to Greek. For a taste of authentic Zante, head to the traditional tavernas dotted around the village and sample skordostoumpi, made with aubergines and garlic, or order a mezze table and experience a host of different Greek flavours.
