Welcome to Porto Zante


It was a very early start this morning to catch our flight to Zante.

We're staying at Porto Zante, a boutique resort of only six villas in Tragaki. We stayed here for the the first time last June and were so bowled over by the beauty of the place as well as the excellent service that we made the rare decision to return to the same place again.

So here we are - all as we remembered. Beautiful panoramic views over the Ionian Sea, gorgeous villa and garden, sun all day long. There's a private sandy beach that always seems to be pleasingly empty of other guests.


The food here is exceptional, particularly the fish. The hotel has their own fishing boat that goes out daily and returns around 10am - the fisherman visits each villa individually with a bucket of today's catches and asks what you'd like for your lunch or dinner. Last time I was here, I ate the best fish I'd ever experienced.

Today we arrived to the same wonderful service we'd remembered. We had a gorgeous fresh fruit platter waiting for us on our patio along with a bottle of Greek house wine.


I love watermelon when the weather is hot!


We dived straight into a spot of lunch. Fish fillet, pesto and vegetables for me (I'm not sure what type of fish it was today) and spaghetti bolognese for Alex.


We had a little walk around the resort to remind ourselves how beautiful it is.


We met the Porto Zante dog again! He was just a little puppy last time we were here! He's been freshly shaved for the hot weather. What a cutie. 


Here's my first book of choice for the holiday


And my first cocktail! The cocktails here are very good indeed.


I know we're on holiday but we did inquired if there was a gym. There wasn't. 

But look what the staff brought  to our villa!


Now that's service! 

Right, we're off for a spot of dinner now. I get slightly obsessed with moussaka whenever I come to Greece and basically order it for every evening meal. I predict tonight will be no different...

  3. WOW Caroline, this looks gorgeous. I'm slightly worried you're going to be all bronzed goddess-esque when we all meet up.. think I'm going to need to get on the fake tan!

    So jealous!

    1. Well I am planning to do quite a bit of tanning! Bronzed Goddess though...not likely! It will have faded away by then anyway :(

    1. I'm glad it's got you all excited, I love the summer months so much :)

      Your holiday with the girlies sounds great! I guess it depends on what you guys want from a holiday. If you wanted something a bit lively I probably wouldn't recommend here as it's pretty quiet. But depends on what you're after really! So much choice! Can't wait to see what you choose :)

    1. No problem, will do! Ha, regarding the stomach, I thank my personal trainer! Happy to pass on tips though. Drinking cocktails like I did tonight is not one of them! ;p
