Hi Napoleon and Dina,
Hi Napolean and family. Graham and I would just like to wish you a good break now that the season for you is over. We always enjoy reading the comments and look forward to seeing you again next year. Please do enjoy your well-deserved break. Love to all. Julie and Graham x
Hello to all our guests.I just wanted to say a very big thank you to all of you and add some small things just because we are coming to the end of the season.Somebody wrote in my comments book that the prices in the bar were high and the menu was limited and that the cleeners were lazy but just because he paid for 3 persons 390 pounds for a week he ll come back because the pool was nice and me and my mom were nice as well.What is my response to that THANK YOU BUT NO.first of all he should have know that is a snack bar of a hotel and not a super maket and that in the 2,50 euros for a coke he is paying the service the electricity and the staff and that there is a difference between a snack bar and a restaurant and at the end of the day nobody forced him to buy anything from the bar but I can understand why he is complaing about it.Its the bargain he found and the lack of money.Anyway A very big thank you to all our friends(they are a lot) I wish you a good winter Napoleon
Napoleon and Vicky. Just arrived back after our third consecutive visit to Nirithes (fith year in a row to Skala}. Yet again we have come back relaxed and refreshed. The coach came early for our pick so we did not get chance to fill in the visitors comment book. Have to agree with previous entires we did enjoy our stay this year in room 303. Our son and his girl friend will be with you on Tuesday, I hope they enjoy their stay as much as we did !!!!! Keep up the good work and as we have said before still cannot find a Greek salad as good as Vickies !
Hi Napolean, Mama and family
Just wanted to say another big thank you to Napoleon and family for a brilliant stay at Nirithes, can't wait to come back in September. Dave and I feel home sick for Kefalonia and you all. Keep the Amstel cool for Dave
Hello to all our friends.We had a situation today and just because we dont want to create an missunderstadings I have to inform all our viewers that check out time is 10.00 and not whatever time guests think it is and jut because the guests in one room thought that the bus would pick them at 16.30 they should leave the room at 15.00 without letting us know and havent packed their things causing a very big mess.These situations are not nice and we are trying to avoid them.By he way all my best to Jullie and Graham.Regards Napoleon
Hi Napoleon, Dina and Vicky Just returned from two wonderful weeks at the Nirithes - as always, great holiday and fabulous to see you all. Thanks very much for everything - including the same room as usual!! We look forward to seeing you soon, hopefully in September. Cheers! Julie and Graham Oates x
Hello to all our friends.Jyst to let you know that our e-mail has changed.The new one is firstname.lastname@example.org.The price of the safe deposit box is 15 euros for a week.regards napoleon
Hi Dave.I promise to do my best but still I havent received the lists for the 30th.
Just returned from a great two weeks in Skala staying at the Nirithes. Thank you Napoleon and Vicky for being such good hosts. Hopefully the baby is now getting to sleep before 3am!!
Only 5 weeks to go, and we'll be back - can't wait.
Glad to hear that the puppy has found a home. This was the only worry of our whole holiday! Thanks to Napoleon and Mum for all their hard work - we had a lovely holiday and definitely want to come back next year - looking forward to those fabulous chips! For those worried about 'the Hill' - piece of cake, especially with a Mythos and a couple of cocktails on board! Emily, our 16 year old, gave our 8 year old a piggyback up some evenings. Excellent holiday all round.
Nicky & Ian Pickett and girls.
Hello.This is Napoleon again.I m very glad to say that the puppy find a house where he will be loved thanks to Ruth our rep.
have just returned from Nirethes after one week,just one word
We have just returned from two absolutely wonderful weeks in Skala. It was my second visit to Nirithes but the first time my husband had been to Kefalonia. I can honestly say hand on heart that it was the best holiday we have ever had. We relaxed completely, enjoyed beautiful weather apart from one day of on and off rain. Napoleon and Vicky, his Mum, were so lovely. They clearly want people to enjoy their holiday and will do everything in their power to make that happen.
Just returned from a week here. First time in Skala. Napoleon and Vicky were very helpful and nothing was too much trouble for them. Rooms are large, airy and clean. Pool area is good with plenty of space and loungers. Bar snacks are all freshly cooked and delicious.
I did the walk into Skala and back twice a day, the slope is good excercise, so don't be put off.
Highly reccommended, will certainly return.
Skala is a good resort with plenty of choice for eating out, you would need much longer than a week to explore all the options.
Go for it, you won't regret it.
Neil & Sheila Snowden
We have just returned from 2 weeks at the Nirithes. Napoleon and Vicky (his mum) are absolutely great and if you need anything, or if you weren't happy with anything, tell them. They really want to know so that they can keep improving. The apartments were light and spacious. The most modern apartments we have stayed in on the Greek islands. The pool was big with a large surrounding patio area, with plenty of loungers for everyone. There was never a shortage.
Hi there, myself and my partner Roger Callen came out in October 2004 and had a great time in Kefalonia staying at the Nirithes. The apartment was great as were the staff. We are due to come over in May and we can't wait, we are really looking forward to staying there again, certainly ready for a relaxing holiday in Skala. We hope to do the walk up to Old Skala again (not very relaxing, but worth the effort , early start and plenty of water recomended). See you soon.
Can anyone tell me if Napoleon and Dina have become parents yet?
my wife and i have booked a holiday to stay with you on 1/6/2008,have read all of the reviews and most seem very positive.
it is our wedding anniversary on the 1/6/2008 and my birthday on the 2/6/2008 ,so it a time of double celebration.
looking forward to seeing you

|Hi Napolean and Dina
We stayed with you in July 2006 and had a lovely time. With regards to previous comments by Mr Holden, I find it most unusual that he did not speak to yourself about any problems he may have had. We found you and your family most helpful and obliging and had a wonderful holiday and made many friend. We would recommend these apartments to anyone in an instant. Many happy years to you all and good luck on the birth of your new baby. Hope to see you in the future
Dear Mr Holden,I have to say that I m sorry for saying you didnt stay with because you did but the registration was under the name of your wife.You stayed in room 200 which is a studio for two persons with a balcony,and you ve requested a cot.You ve stayed for a week and through out it you ve asked us by giving my mom a piece of paper a tv ariel for the tv in the room.First of all when I escorted you to the room you didnt say anything about the floor or about the cot which it was made for your baby.All our cots are made by steel and they have a wooden floor with a small matress in blue.Im pretty sure that if you had a problem about the room which on your arrival was cleaned and mapped as a logikal person you should have report any kind of complaint either to us or John our rep.You say that the shutters were always oppened by the cleaning lady who was coming in and thats true just because when you were leaving the room apart from the shutter you had the windows shut us well and I ve told the cleaning ladies to open -not only yours-all windows in order the rooms to have air.I know that all this wont ghange your mind about our hotel but I m sure that if you have told me about it or told the maid the room would be much better for you and your family.
Thank you to Napolean,Vikki, & Staff, another wonderful 2 weeks in beautiful Kephalonia. The appartments were clean and spacious, as usual we were well looked after by you and your staff. The pool area is addequate and not overcrowded and lunchtime snacks excellent. Meals in the town are varied and delightful ,I can highly recommend Sirrocco, and the walk back up the hill,taken at a very sedate pace, is enough to allow everything to settle in time for a few nightcapsss in the bar with friends. All in all a wonderful place to relax and chill out away from the hectic life we live in U.K. Best wishes to Napolean and Deena and your expected new arrival in December, I hope he allows you more sleep than your visiting Turkeys ,Napolean
Just returned from a week at the Nirithes, our experiences are as follows:-
Hi Napoleon and Dina - we are so pleased that First Choice have come back to us with a late deal. We are now booked for the 28 August until 11 September with you and we can't wait. We are so pleased as it was looking as if there was going to be no availability. It would be great if we could have a room on the top floor as last time - overlooking the mountains/pool. Don't worry if this is not possible - we're just grateful that we are able to come to you again. See you in 2 weeks. Regards and best wishes to you both - Julie and Graham Oates
just arrived back from nirithes apartments in Skala. Excellent apartment,big and clean. Great pool and you could stay in it until 8pm if you wanted. Napoleon and his Mum made you feel very welcome and their greek salads are excellent. Mythos lager was served very very cold, which was nice. The hill is testing but look upon it as a keep fit exercise.Hope to return soon
Hi Napoleon and Vicki,
I just wanted to say that we as owners have nothing to do with the allocation to the rooms.The main system in the uk sells the rooms and we place the guests in the rooms.There was a couple mr Smith and his wife who stayed in room 101 which is in the ground floor.To me they said that they had payed for a room with a balcony and the same to the rep.I told them that if thatwas the case I would change them but after checking they hadnt so that was the room they had paid for.The rep tryied to allocate them in another room again in the ground floor but different room type but this also didnt work out.I have never promised to put them in another room and it wasnt me the one to blame anyway I was more than happy to give the rep a bottle of wine to as a good will jesture.Today they left and they wrote on our comment book a very bitter comment about me.All those years we have tried very hard to keep all our guests happy trying to help in any way we can.Anyway I really think that there was a missunderstanding with this couple because there attidude wasnt the one I expected from an English couple(they didnt even say hello when greeted) but if they didnt like the accomodation it was very easy to ask the company to move them to another one.Once again I would like to thank all the guests that write their comments and say a big thanks to sloppy John and the rest of the partie who during their stay ate all my pizza supply and we are looking forward to see them again.Gia sou ghloe and thomas.Best regards napoleon
Just wanted to say a big thank you to Napolean and Vicki(his mum) for helping to make our stay a brilliant one. The Apartments are really nice and kept clean. Nothing was to much trouble and the Amstel in those cold glasses made the holiday worthwhile on there own. Will definetly be back!!
Dear sir,I just read your letter and all I can say is that to check your booking and find out if there is a bl indication if so then you ll have a balcony if not then you ll have a ground floot studio.I m afraid that I cant guarantee that you ll be on a high floor or not.The company is the one that does everything, so when I receive the rooming lists I just do the allocating.
Hi Napoleon My wife and I plus two friends are coming to Kefalonia in September 2007 and have seen your studios in the First Choice brochure. We would require 2 x studios with balconies (and sea view) on the top floor, would you be able to guarantee that these would be available ? as we would not want ground floor studios. Look forward to your reply. Regards David Whyborn
Thank you again Napolian for all that you and your mum did for us.To anyone wishing to go to Kefolonia these are the best appartments you will find.The bar is very reasonable in prices and Napolian does the best cheese burgers.Very clean and tidy .Thank you all again.
HiWe are hoping to book nirithes for this summer and would like to know if the pool has a shallow end suitable for smaller non swimming children to splash around in (the youngest is age 4)
Have just had a 2 week break at the Nirides, the last 2 weeks of August. Went with my husband and 2 children and we had a great time, the apartment was big enough for the 4 of us and the pool was great, nice and big and with plenty of sunbeds, my kids loved playing pool in the bar area and the kittens were a hit, although very upset when they were taken away! Hired a car from Greekstones (after recommendations on this website) and found them every bit as helpful as stated. The Island of Kefalonia was fantastic with lots to see and do. Skala itself was lovely we loved all of it, the tavernas and restaurants the beaches, the square everything, we chilled out from day 1, which was exactly what we needed. Met some great people around the pool at the Nirides and we are all meeting up next year, same place! If you haven't already guessed we loved our holiday and had a great time! Can't wait for next year
Hello Napolean, Dina and Mum,
To respond to mr Wallis all I have to say is that its not our fault that his ghildren suffered fro ear infection sad but it can happen.As for their ghildren behaviour I was told and saw it His son stuck in one of the kittens chewing gum and we had to take to the vet in order to remove it.Also to respond to the people that say that the bar was pricey I only have to say that its a bar in greece not London and compered to others prices are very logical and if somebody likes to buy staff from the supermarket it is accepted but the supermarket has low prices everybody knows that and we all know that its different to buy staff from a bar and a supermarket.I would like to say a very big thank you tp all the guests who support us over the years.Best of regards napoleon.
Hi Tina and Paul, I hope you remember myself, Calvin and Siobhan from Akti Dimmy's last year. We went to Zante this year and had a wonderful holiday. I am glad to hear that you also enjoyed your holiday. We are interested in going to Kefalonia next year and would be really grateful if you could e-mail me at email@example.com so that maybe we could catch up and have a chat. It would be nice to hear from you. Cheers, Karen
We have just got back from the Nirithes and were put in a ground floor apartment. We were a bit disappointed not to have a balcony but on the plus side the apartment was cool at a time when temperatures reached 50! At night it was cooler too being so low down but be warned that the bar is opposite so if you want an early night forget it. It didn't bother us but the couple next door had a young child and found it too noisy. You can sit outside but there isn't really a view. The apartment was huge and very clean, everyone kind and helpful.
I am thinking of booking to stay at Nirithes in May next year as they look really nice and this will be our first trip to Kefalonia (we usually go to Lindos, Rhodes). My only concern is that it is difficult to guarantee a room with a balcony and view which is quite important to us as we like to spend alot of time outside eating, drinking and soaking up the last of the days sun before going out in the evenings!!!. Has anyone stayed in the groundfloor rooms? If so i'd really appreciate your help in advice as to finding out what they are like...many thanks.
We have just returned from a great week staying at Nirithes in Skala. (8th-15th August 06) The apartment was very clean and spacious and the Napolean who runs the apartments made us all feel very welcome. We paid 49 euros for air conditioning for the week which was well worth it. The pool was lovely and there were always plenty of sunbeds whatever the time of day. The bar was nice although quite pricey and food was very expensive so we tended to get rolls from the bakery nearby for lunch and go out for dinner is Skala. The highlight of the week for our children was the cat and her 3 beautiful kittens that lived near the pool area. We spent most of our days running after our 3 year old daughter who wanted to see the cats rather that play in the pool! All in all we had a lovely relaxing week and some fantastic meals in Skala and Poros and we have already picked up a brochure for Nirithes for next summer!
We just got back from a 2 wk stay at the nirethes on the 15 aug, all in all not a bad place for greece if your looking for a relaxing holiday, a car is a must to explore this beautiful island, we felt nepoleans bar prices a little expensive considering we got mythos for 85c at the supermarket! and both our kids got ear infections which is in question after we found others including adults with ear problems too so would recommend ear plugs if in the pool for long periods, our daughter was in agony on the flight home with here ear and was a relief when we arrived at gatwick.despite this would recommend
Just got back from 2 excellent weeks at the Nirithes.
Probably one of the best holidays we've had! The hill up to the apartments is a challenge but if you avoid the hottest times it's no problem. Very large apartments nicely furnished and the place is kept very clean. Pool looked very nice and was cleaned each night and didn't seem busy although we did not use it. The owner Napolean was very friendly and happy to help. Skala was all very pleasant and every meal was a good one. Beach great although sea had not warmed up much when we were there (mid June)! Great resort to chill out, would not be for those wanting a wild night life! Highly recommended.
I am visiting Scala this summer, and so is a friend. We are staying at the Nirithes Aparthotel and our friend is staying at Liana Apartments, am wondering if anyone can tell me if they close together and if it is going to be possible for us meet up with our friend? Thanks for help with this one.
Just returned from kefalonia stayed at the nirithes for two weeks with my husband and baby. Loved it so musch that I decided to cancel my flight home and stayed on with my baby. Unfortunately the nirithes was full but had no problem finding other accomodation. We had a wonderful extra two weeks and it was no problem getting a flight home. The most amazing thing about Kefalonia was the people they were just so kind and helpful. I will certainly return in the future to restore my faith in mankind and for a bit of sun!!!!
Dear friends I m sorry but you can only book via first choice in order to come to our hotel.I cant make direct bookings,there is a slight possibility for next year though.ANY WAY we are looking forward to see our old and new friends this year.regards napoleon
We are really looking forward to staying in your apartments in August. We are staying in a studio apartment, do these studios have balconies or terraces?
Sorry Napoleon - I've just realised that I'm being really stupid - I've
just seen that the messages go to you directly! So, hello
Napoleon - we enjoyed our holiday so much last year that we want to
come again and would like to book directly with you if that is
possible? Would you let us know if you are allowed to do this
now. Hopefully, we'll see you this summer if you have any room
