The Zorbas Island apartments
At Zorbas Island you will feel at home immediately, both in summer and winter. You will be welcomed in your own language and provided with all necessary information while you are brought to one of the 25 apartments. The apartments are situated directly on the coast, about a 15 minute drive east from the Heraklion airport. The eye catcher of the Zorbas Island apartments is definitely the beautiful swimming pool with a breath taking view over the sea and a few meters away from the beach.
The apartments are ideally located in a peaceful spot, close to roads needed to explore the island, yet only 5 minutes away by foot from the village centre. The village itself is an interesting mix of locals and tourism and lives and breathes all year round. Besides the bus stop, the pharmacy and several ATM’s you will find many small shops, supermarkets, bars and restaurants.
All the apartments are surrounded by beautiful gardens and are furnished comfortably and modern. Everything you need is available: fridge, cooking area, water boiler, air-conditioning, even a hair dryer in the bathroom. Twice a week your apartment will be cleaned including a change of towels and linen. Would you like to come with a group of people? Not a problem, there are three spacious holiday homes on the premises that easily accommodate six persons, you could even choose to stay all winter.
Located next to the gorgeous swimming pool is the pool bar and taverna. The inviting atmosphere of both bar and restaurant has made it a meeting point not only for guests but for many locals as well. All dishes are prepared fresh on a daily basis, at breakfast you will see the chef pass by loaded with the daily shoppings. The breakfast consists of coffee, tea, orange juice, fresh bread, various cold cuts, eggs, cereals, etc. etc. etc. A lot of attention is spent on the dinner. It is different every evening, consists of a variety of dishes and always includes seasonal fruit. Should you have specific dietary needs, please let us know in advance.
