Hotel Varres is situated on Bochali hill, the most enchanting and idyllic area of Zakynthos as it overlooks the whole city offering beautiful panoramic views. It is just 2 Km from the central port and 4 Km from the airport.
A pleasant 15 minute walk leads the visitor to the town of Zakynthos, while a 3 minute car ride leads him to Tsilivi beach, which is one of the most beautiful on the island and has been awarded a Blue flag for its cleanliness.
In Tsilivi you will find shops, traditional tavernas, bars, super markets, bakeries and anything else you may need during your stay.
BEYOND THE RESORT
During their occupation of the island the Venetians named the island of Zakynthos the 'Flower of the Orient'.
Zante is a beautiful island and the perfect place for a summer holiday. The size of Zante makes it an ideal holiday destination for all ages.
ZANTE CULTURE AND TRADITION
It is a great challenge for the people of Zante to balance the requirements and implications of mass tourism with traditional values and culture.
From our time spent on the island we have seen the traditional heart and soul of the people of Zakynthos remains strong.
The island has a long history. It takes its name from Zakynthus the son of the king of Phrygia Dardanus. Zakynthus came from the city of Psophis in Arcadia, where his brothers reigned, to colonize the island.
He built an acropolis, probably at the location where the Venetian castle is today, which he named Psophida.
