These are lovely litlle apartments off the main square in Lourdas. They are basic but clean. The beach is about 10-15 mins down hill, longer on the way up.. Myself and my two teen girls loved staying here and have booked for next year. The restaurant across the village is very good and we ate here alot.
Who is the tour operator that deals with the Maria Studios and Apartments in Lourdas? I stayed there one year with Manos but they are not in the Manos brochure any longer. Thanks.
We went here in July/August of 2003 and really liked it. It is directly off the village square in a sort of courtyard. The apartment was basic but clean and quiet. The village square is really old greek type of place with gatherings of old greek men and families having parties. It is brilliant to watch the old greek men having a sort of "dance off" on the evenings when they get together and is not to be missed. It reminded me of THE FILM you know the one. Also the lady, Maria that owns the apartments has a restaurant off the village square that is very good and she is very helpfull. Also a plus is that the drop off and pick up points are in the village square. Not really far from anything really, there is a village shop and phone down the road, about 2 mins. The beach is about 10 mins downhill, and is a real effort on the way back. The Lara hotel has a pool about half way down if you cant take the pace on the way back. You can hire a car or jeep or bike etc in the village and on the main street, and I reccommend that you do.
I would go back here again in a heartbeat. If you are looking for discos and loads of noise and bustle this is not the place to go. There is a bar and a few other restaurants in the village, but most stroll either up to the main street or down to the beach for dinner. Oh one word of warning there is a mad dog, well I would imagine it is grown by now into a large dog, it was a puppy then. It took a fancy to mine and any other persons legs. Just a nip then, probably a chunk now.
I have just booked here for next August - the brochure says that the beach is a 10 minute stroll downhill, 4 minutes to the centre (of the village) and there is a taverna directly opposite. Yet Andy Nix says it is a long way from beach and tavernas? We want to be quiet and "far from the madding crowd" tho. Andy, if you see this, I would be grateful if you would give me some more information regarding the area in general and the accommodation. We have booked a 2 bed apartment. Many thanks.
