Location & Map

The Sofia’s Hotel Complex is located in the heart of Kalamaki, a family friendly resort, but also very close to other well known tourist resorts. All amenities are close at hand such as ATM machines, pharmacy, doctor’s office, taxi rank, shops, restaurants and much more. The famous beautiful sandy beach of Kalamaki being no longer than a 10 minute walk away (approximately 700 meters), is certainly a great asset too. Zakynthos town and the port are only 5km away and the airport of Dionisios Solomos is just 3km away. This makes the Sofia’s an ideal place to start exploring the whole of the island.

Zakynthos

Zakynthos is the third largest of the Ionian Islands also known as "Fiore di levante" which means flower of the East, a name given to it by the Venetian conquerors many years ago.

It also has a few smaller islands of its own like Marathonisi, Pelouzo and Agios Sostis (Cameo) in the gulf of Laganas and Kalamaki.

The numerous beautiful beaches like "Shipwreck", Daphne, Gerakas, Keri, Alykes and Kalamaki attract many visitors every year from all around the world and are also renowned because they are the nesting area for the endangered Loggerhead Sea Turtle Caretta Caretta. The National Marine Park does everything it can to ensure its protection.

The town of Zakynthos has many coffee shops and traditional tavernas in the squares or alongside the port where you can relax while enjoying the view. Bohali, otherwise known as "the balcony of Zakynthos", offers a spectacular view of the town, especially when it is all lit up in the evening.

There are many traditional mountain villages that produce honey, homemade cheese, yogurt and embroideries you can explore and discover on your own or on a bus tour.

Couples, families with children and groups of friends can all find something to suit their needs in this amazing and favored by many destination.

How to get here

The Sofia’s Hotel complex is very easy to access either by air or land. Zakynthos is lucky enough to have its own airport which is a five minute drive from the accommodation. The cost of a taxi to deliver you from the airport to the hotel door is approximately 10 euro.

Flights arrive from all over European destinations with daily chartered airlines and there is also a daily flight to and from Athens.

Zakynthos airport has cafes and bar facilities to provide food and refreshment. There are also Duty Free shops to meet all your shopping requirements.

If you choose not to fly, getting to Zakynthos is just as easy. There is a comprehensive ferry service from Kyllini (in the mainland) to Zakynthos port with ferries departing from Kyllini from 5.30am {high season) until 9.30pm. This ferry trip takes just over an hour. So if you are travelling from Athens by car this drive should not take you more than 4 hours (300km).

Again, the travel distance from the port to our complex is only five minutes.
Finally, there is also a ferry service from different ports in Italy which will take you to Patras (mainland) and from here it is a 45 minute drive to Kyllini for the onward ferry trip to the island.

So wherever you are travelling from and whatever means of transport you need getting to Zakynthos is easy.
