Zakfari Jeep Safari - (Zante Excursions)

Matt H  (September 13, 2004)         

Me & girlfriend Laura went on "Welsh Day", Lee was the driver.

Must say that Zakfari is by far the best way to explore Zykinthos, and i would definately say that Lee is a top guide and a great laugh!!

The places you go to are surreal and you will appreciate them even more, when you get home and think back to where you visitted.

Cheers Zakfari & cheers to Lee Higgins for making it a superb day!!

Aspassia Studios - (Accommodation in Tsilivi)

Matt H           

POSITION:- the apartments really are about 50 yds from the beach. The apts are nearer the Planos end which is a much better part of Tsilivi. About 200 yards to the main road where you will find all the bars, restaurants & shops. Although the nearest supermarket is only about 30 yds away.

QUITENESS:- was only woken up once during the night, but this was due to dogs barking rather than loud music or loud peeps etc.

APARTMENT:- cleaner came every day, although i wouldnt really recomment cooking anything in the apartment. All rooms face the sea and the pool. Try to get an upstairs apartment if possible. Pool was quite small but always quite and kept very clean.

BAR & OWNER:- there are two parts to Aspassia Studios, one half of it houses English, and the other half houses czech guests. George & Kiki look after the english half, while Georges estranged brother (they do not talk to each other any more!!) looks after the Czechs. George is a great bloke and really looks after his guests, we didnt meet Kiki & their children as she was in Athens giving berth to their fourth child when we were there. Although this didnt stop george as he came out on the Mythos with us once or twice (the bad lad!!)

OVERALL:- If we were going to Tsilivi again (most definately) we would try to get in at aspassia before anywhere else. It is quite basic but the location and the hospitality of the owners more than makes up for it!!
