The Mirabelle Hotel is located in Argasi, on the island of Zakynthos. The hotel resembles a traditional Greek village with small buildings scattered in the area, a garden, a fountain, and cobblestone narrow streets. Each room has its own layout. The Mirabelle consists of 3 buildings and has 18 standard rooms and nine studios, all recently renovated. Guests may swim at the nearby beach or relax with a drink by the hotels swimming pool.
The rich Greek breakfast at the Mirabelle is based on pure and authentic local ingredients. Guests may start with eggs, cold cuts, fruits, compotes, cakes, pastry creations, breads, and rusks. There is “tsoureki” (sweet bread), biscuits, sweet and savory tarts, yoghurt, jams, honey, salads, and fresh juices. Worth trying are the freshly baked pies with cheese, spinach and meat or the hot “trahanas” soup (traditional pasta) and the local “praousto” jam with yellow plum. Local cheeses include gruyere, feta, “kasseri”, “myzithra”, local “prentza” and “ladotyri”. Desserts like “pasteli” (sesame and honey bar), “mandolata” (nougat), “ryzogalo” (rice pudding), milk pie and homemade semolina pudding (halva) are also served. Local specialties include “strapatsada” (scrambled eggs with tomatoes), rusks with raisins and wine, the “bobota”, made with corn flour, cinnamon, orange juice and grated walnuts. Worth trying are the melted eggplants with garlic and tomato, or the “belousiotika”, water onions with beans and mustard or with boiled potatoes, garlic and other herbs. Guests should also try the spicy handmade tomato sauce on crunchy bread: the “riganada” with grated cheese. For the perfect ending, Greek coffee and herbal teas are also offered.
