I returned from the Olive Grove recently and you will, I'm sure, have a great
time there. The pool bar serves all evening and closes when the last person
goes to bed (avoid the BMW cocktails - the only drink that made me fall over
all fortnight- with a little help from an abandoned lilo left by the pool!!)
The nearest beach is Avithos which is approx. a 20 minutes (hot in July) walk
or two or three minutes by car. It's a lovely beach and not windy at all,
There are two tavernas down at the beach and some nearer, just around the
corner from the apartments. The best of which, in my opinion, are Dum Spiros
Spero or the Garden Taverna. There are others a little further afield which I'm
sure you'll find out when you arrive.
Have a great time.
Ps Say hello to Kiki, the delightful barmaid.
Why didn't you mention your joining of automobile metal with an Austrian
gentleman on the road with said hairpins???????
