Nice big studios in a very quiet location. fan didnt work so he owners who lived on the bottom floor sorted out by giving us a huge stand up fan
We didnt actually stay here, but in the Apartments.
We are staying at The Violatos Studios in July and understand there is building work going on nearby, will we be affected very much?
What important things to take with us like would a travel kettle or more towels anything that would help us enjoy our stay at the violatos studios we are going on the 29/5/05 any replies appreciated.
We stayed here in August and were really pleased with it. We were really lucky and had a large room. It was kept really clean and had everything we needed including a really large fridge and a ceiling fan in the living area.
These studios are in a great location, behind the main raod so it's quiet.
The room we had (for 2) was a decent size, had a dining table and chairs and a ceiling fan, which was great. There was more storage space then I've ever seen - lots of hangers in the wardrobe, plus 3 drawers underneath, a dressing table with 4 drawers and the beside cabinets had 3 drawers too!
The bathroom was on the small side but on the plus it had a shower curtain (a first in the whole time I've been to Greece).
The reason I've put cleanliness as below par is although our linens and towels were changed regularly, bins emptied each day, the studio itself was not cleaned the whole 2 weeks we were there. Shame really, the studios we booked last year through Olympic were cleaned each day. Anyway it didn't spoil our holiday.
We stayed at the Violatos studios in mid June, and I loved Aghia Efimia so much, I'm going back again in September. Our group had a one bed apartment, which was great as it had balconies on both sides of the building, (and gave a nice through draught on a hot day,) and a studio, on the rearof the building. I think I would prefer a rear facing studio again as you get a view of the hills, can watch the sunset and hear the goat bells tinkling across the fields. We loved Paradise Beach, and its lovely taverna at the top of the road. It was clean, quiet, and despite the usual eccentric Greek plumbing, perfect...
Stayed in a twin room apartment, quite spacious and relatively clean. Sheets changed three times during our stay and towels twice. Kitchen equipment was adequate for our needs, we ate out most nights. Downside would be that there are apartments on ground level with a path that people use so not much privacy on your balcony...but hey, we were in kefalonia in the sunshine...who cares!
Transfer depends where the coach occupants are going.It took over 2 hours from the airport but much less going back as few pickups.
I am staying in the Violatos apartments and would like to know how long the transfer takes from the airport. I am going with Olympic Holidays. Can anyone help?
We are off to Violatos on May 30th for two weeks...pretty much got all the info we need from this website but how long's the transfer from the airport? Can anyone help?! Thanks.
Stayed here for two weeks and could not fault them.There is a two ringed cooker but we never actually got to switch it on!Cleaners were in every day,sheets changed after 4 and then 5 nights,towels most days.Had two "little owls" roosting on the roof of the house opposite.
I'm looking to book these studios thro Olympic.
We'd be staying in a studio for 2, the brochure doesn't say that they have a kitchenette. I'm assuming that they do as it's shown as self catering but can someone who stayed here just confirm it please?
Just got back from Kefalonia after a fantastic 2 weeks. Loved Agia Efimia. Violatos studios were very good but could have done with the addition of fans and a sunshade on the balcony. Very quiet and very clean. great service from Helen the Olympic Rep.
very pleased with these apartments. the owners are very friendly & helpful. not 5* but better than we expected. the location is ideal ie.very quiet but close to everything. well maintained & cleaned. would definitely recommend & also stay here again...if you do happen to visit & notice the holes in the road outside the entrance. they were caused by our motorbike stand digging into the tarmac after the sun had virtually turned the road into liquid tar..sorry mr violatos!!
Clean ,pleasant owners very nice, just nicely off the main street.A wonderful holiday will be returning.
Just returned from two weeks in the Violatos and we both were very happy with the accommodation.We found the owners and family to be friendly and helpful and the cleaning was of a very good standard.We would have liked to have had a ceiling fan as pictured in the brochure but otherwise it was all we could have asked for.
Exclusive to Olympic Holidays, these apartments are an easy 5 minute stroll to the front but avoid the traffic noise. They are very clean and we had daily maid service even though this is not advertised. We upgraded to an Apartment which was spacy for 2 and ideal for 4. The fridge feezer was a good idea, and the kitchen equipment generous.
