Folies Apartments

Accommodation in Lourdas

We have stayed here twice - in August 2004 and then in August 2005 - we re-booked for 2005 because we enjoyed it so much.It is very quiet and a bit of a walk to the beach and main restaurants up by Vlahata - a car would be useful if you were not fit or did not enjoy walking. There was no pool available - we either went to the Lara Hotel about 10 minutes walk towards the beach or we used the Eleni a good 25 minutes away,all uphill, the Birds Nest studios are a few metres away but the pool was not finished last year - may be this?It gets very dark at night so a torch would be useful for late night returns. This year we are only going to Kefalonia once - in August and the same two weeks as we have stayed at the Folies in the last 2 years - but this time we are going to Eleni.The folies is about 250 metres up a steep hill from the plane tree in Lordata but the views over to Zante are worth it.The self catering facilities we found to be ok - we took a 6 toaster from Tesco - but you get an oven,3 rings,plenty of cutlery and crockery and you control your hot water so never need to have a cold shower unless you want one. No air con but we never found the heat in the evening to spoil our sleep.
