Green Practices

Castelli has always been oriented towards protecting the environment:
Our hotel building itself has been designed with an angle shape, around a beautiful large eucalyptus tree, which existed in our grounds two centuries before the hotel arrived!

We are blessed to be situated in magnificent Zakynthos: picture gorgeous weather, long blonde sandy beach scenery, our cultural heritage very important, …
The island’s characteristics reflect instantly a holiday paradise. At the same time, we believe our guests would also enjoy learning more about the local community, thus adding more colour to their precious leisure time: taking walks around the scenic villages, be introduced to the endangered famous Caretta Caretta sea turtles that choose Zakynthos to lay their eggs, (perhaps even adopt a turtle…), visit the Castelli farm and get acquainted with the Greek nature’s wealth, taste the fresh fruit, or even pick olives with our team, and see how the local pure extra virgin olive oil is produced…not only taste it..
