Bliss, in Zakynthos, is located in the suburb of Bochali, high above much of the surrounding area of the Zakynthian countryside and sea and next to the Venetian castle. This is a beautifully built and well-preserved house, in the tradition of Eptanesian architecture, with vibrant, earthy colors, windows with traditional wooden shutters and a Zakynthian wood ceiling design. From the windows, you can see the surrounding mountains, hills and the Ionian Sea. The island of Kefalonia is prominent, towards the north - as well as Ithaca and the mountains of the Peloponnese, on a crisp clear morning.
The space is a 15-minute walk from downtown Zakynthos, with plenty of options for food, bars, coffee shops, parks, museums and many walks, close at hand. The surrounding area is very peaceful. The castle grounds are a 5-minute walk from the front door. In the house, you will feel distant from the downtown hustle and bustle and the heat of the summer, despite being within walking distance.
