A Tempting 2wenty’s Holiday

Wednesday, August 29th, 2007

ZanteLaganas in Zante is fast becoming a popular destination for young clubbers, it’s now not far behind Malia in Crete and San Antonio in Ibiza. Although it is a small resort there is still a great amount of things to do.

The Blue Bell Studios is a three star, self catering accommodation with fair sized rooms and either a terrace if you’re staying in a ground floor studio or a balcony on either floor above. Both terrace and balcony apartments face either the garden area or the pool, but if you would like a balcony I advise you to request this in advance. We arrived unaware of this and could not have a balcony due to it being peak time. On the studio complex there is a pool with a pool side bar which serves drinks and snacks throughout the day but next door there is a café that serves fantastic fry up’s. Sun beds are available all around the pool too.

Although the complex seems like quite a walk from the main strip in high heels it actually is not that far but perhaps worth a taxi if you would like to last the night standing and dancing on your feet. As you walk down the strip there are many bars and clubs, some good ones to try would be Cherry Bay situated at the bottom of the strip by the beach, The Rescue bar which is always packed and Cocktails and Dreams which has fantastic cocktails and vodka jellies. The beach in Laganas is beautiful, the sea is calm and you can walk for miles out to the sea as it is so shallow. There are many restaurants to choose from including authentic Greek and the usual McDonalds, Pizza Hut and KFC.

Laganas is a lively, clubbers paradise but I’d only advise a week’s stay as it’s not big enough for a lengthy holiday.

Aspinal Pink PassportHoliday high season is nearly over but from now until early October the best deals are available. Once the kids are back to school prices for holidays drop considerably and this is also when the summer season’s fashion prices drop too. So why not begin your pre-holiday shop with a chic, stylish holiday travel essential. Aspinal of London has a selection of leather travel goods but the cutest is the leather passport cover.

The passport cover comes in a selection of colours including baby pink, purple, blue and black with optional initial imprints in either silver or gold depending on the passport colour. The leather is of highest quality; hand made and available for United Kingdom, Ireland, Canada and the United States passport holders, for other countries citizens, there is an optional plain passport cover. Passport covers are £35 but you could invest in the travel collection for £99 which includes the passport cover along with a luxury travel wallet and two luggage tags.

Club 18-30 Classic

Wednesday, August 29th, 2007

Mirage MaliaThe ideal holiday is sun, sea and fun. Malia in Crete certainly provided that, a typical 18-30 resort with fantastic weather and a wide selection of night life, this was and still is one of the most popular choice of destinations for the 18-30 crowd.

The Club 18-30 studios, Mirage is self catering accommodation with spacious 2-3 person bedrooms and kitchen facilities. The studios themselves are smack bang in the centre of the strip in between some of Malia’s liveliest bars. As part of the apartment complex there is a large pool with a buzzing atmosphere, sunbeds are available all around the pool and there is also a 24hr pool bar which serves alcohol and food throughout the day.

It is a 10 minute stroll turning left out of the apartments, down the main strip to the beach and on the way you’ll spot some lovely Greek restaurants as well as the traditional British fry up cafés and pubs. Head to The Red Lion for good value British food or alternatively you could pop into McDonalds. On either side of the hotel you will find many clubs and bars, opposite the complex there is a bar called Yiasou bar which has the most comfortable chairs in Malia and Factory night club holds fantastic foam parties.

By far one of the best Club 18-30 resorts! Read more at www.club18-30.com.
