Friday photo – Greek man in a kilt in Zakynthos, Greece

As you may have gathered I visit my sister every year on the Greek island of Zakynthos, where she runs two Windmill hotels together with her Greek husband Denis. Here’s a picture of Denis wearing a kilt that some of his regular customers from Scotland had brought him as a gift.

Windmill Studios and Windmill Bay Hotel in the resort of Argassi were built by my sister and her husband over a number of years on land that Denis inherited from his family. They spent many winters building them section by section and many long summers working hard to look after their customers – the life of a hotel owner is not quite the same as being on holiday!

They now have many loyal guests who return year after year, and the teenagers who came with their parents are starting to bring their own children. If you’re in Argassi on the island of Zakynthos, do drop in and say hello, although I can’t guarantee that Denis will be wearing his new kilt every day!

    @ Jean – I feel exactly the same and whenever it’s raining here in Bristol I think it’s time to get on that plane to Zante and get some sunshine.

    The Windmill Studio was a brilliant place to stay, the staff was very helpful and friendly, the food was the best on the island and we still keep in touch with their local singer Mr Gavin Baxter we hope to come back soon 10/10
