About to make our fourth vist to stay with Gerry and Christina. Well kept and fitted apartments with stunning views over Lourdas Bay, and to Zante. At the rear are equally impressive views of Mt. Enos (1627 metres). Own transport advisable to get best from beautiful island. Good tavernas within fifteen minutes walking. Well maintained pool. Quiet location. Superb hosts
First year excellence totally spoilt by following lack of service and rip-off trips. Reps failed to advise that trip to Olympus did not include either entrance or meals - until we arrived at venues. Ineffectual in resolving problems - even when presented with evidence. H/Q staff condescending and rude when inquiring about non-arrivl of tickets.
Incredible views over bay to Zante from terrace. Excellent food, good service and prices. Quality house wine from owners vineyard. Recommend Spinach Pies and Calimari. Good fish dishes. Wide choice of greek food (don't like eating English dishes when in Kefalonia>.
It is well worth the walk to the top of the village. Do not be put off by the "posh" appearance - the food and wine are very reasonably priced. The Mousaka is the cheapest in the resort. In addition it is freshly made with chunky vegetables and a very tasty bechemel sauce.
These apartments are larger and better equipped than the norm in the resort. The kitchen includes a grill/oven as well as a hob, and a cordless kettle. The furnishings include a dressing table and table and chairs. The apartments have proper air conditioning (not just a fan on the ceiling).
We made mistake of arriving just before a party of eight. We were virtually ignored until they had been served, and even then our wine and bread were not received until after the mediocre meal.
No British operator uses Afrato, but it is possible to book flights and travel independently. Gerry will always pick someone up at Airport.
Second visit of year. Food again very good - even though menu limited at very end of season. Excellent grilled Pork and Lamb (yes they are Greek !) but be warned you need to ask for a small portion if your appetite is less than huge.( 5 or 6 lamb chops)
