So you know that you want to get away, but you’re just not sure where…  Let me take you through the reasons why Zante is your own personal paradise;

The Nightlife


If there’s one thing that the people of Zante can do, it’s host a party.  Perhaps this is why it makes it such an attractive destination for holiday makers, meaning there’s plenty of ‘party’ jobs available for Summer Takeover workers.  It’s rare for a night at work to end as just that, you’ll be sucked into the revelling and partying until the early hours of the morning.

The Scenery


You’re going to legit fall in love with this place.  It’s beautiful beyond words, and you wouldn’t be the first to develop a ‘spiritual connection’ with the island’s many secret spots.  We recommend Shipwreck Cove, Turtle Bay and Zante town to start you off on your adventures.

The Food


You can’t really go wrong with a Gyros, a cousin of the kebab that you could definitely eat drunk OR sober.  Greece is know for tasty meals with portion sizes that won’t exactly leave you hungry.  When you’re feeling fancy and want to opt for a meal that involves knives and forks, you’ll be absolutely spoilt for choice – especially when it comes to seafood.  With restaurants dotted by the beach you know you’re getting the catch of the day every day.  If you’re going to do this in true Summer Takeover style, you’ll be washing it all down with the local beverage of choice – ouzo.  Which brings us promptly to…

The Boat Parties 


It’s pretty hard to go wrong with a boat party, unless you buy tickets for one knowing full well that you get violently seasick at the thought of a bath.  Zante boat parties are just that little bit more special – you’re surrounded by epic scenery that gets all the more beautiful when you’re misty-eyed from too many tequila.

The Experience


Once you’ve done a season in Zante you’ll have been bitten by the bug.  Unfortunately for you this means every summer of your life for the next few years will belong to a sunny island, but we can think of worse fates!
