first timers for greece, looking at booking the venus hotel?

Hi, never been to greece before so unsure where to visit, like the look of Kalamaki and the venus hotel. Is there enough to do in this area for two weeks? Is it very quiet? Myself and hubby like to explore during the day on foot or bus, have a nice meal and either quite drinks some nights and a few livelier nights, still young at heart. What prices like for lunches and dinners? Only usually have main meal, occasional starter. Thanks

Venus is a great hotel and is popular as you will have seen from the reviews. We've been staying there for a good few years now and love it.

Kalamaki has a great choice of restaurants and bars to suit most tastes and eating out it not expensive. In June we were paying as little as €24 for two courses and wine and I think the most we spent was under €40 for something special.

There is a bus service into Zante town and you can get to other areas on the island from the bus station there. I posted a link to the timetable on this forum earlier today so you should be able to pick that up.

We find the best way of exploring the island is to hire a car as we like to stop as the mood takes us but if driving is not an option then there are organised tours which can be purchased in resort.

We have no trouble spending 2 weeks there enjoying pool days as well exploring days.
