The house is a two minute drive from the village of Katastari with all basic services (bakery, supermarket, petrol station, schools, restaurant etc.) and six minutes from the beaches of Alykes and Alykanas with extensive tourist facilities. The capital, port and airport are 25 minutes away by car.
Zakynthos (40,000 inhabitants, 400 km2
) is the southernmost island in the Ionian Sea. On the island are about 1.3 million olive trees, the main source of income after tourism. Due to the absence of industry, the air is clean. There is also an airport (code ZTH) that is particularly popular in the summer with direct flights from most European countries. There are flight connections with Athens throughout the year, provided by Olympic Air and Aegean Airlines. In addition, ferries maintain a daily connection with the mainland and there are regular bus services to Patras, Thessaloniki and Athens. Life on Zakynthos is relaxed and the population is friendly. Supermarkets are sufficient, including chains such as Lidl, AB (Delhaize) and Spar.
