Buena Vista Studios - (Accommodation in Lourdas)

Jim M           

wonderful views across the sea to Zante. The owner, Elias, is usually on hand to give advice on the island, and swap tales of travel all over the world. Some of the best kept apartments in Greece.

Spiros Restaurant - (Restaurants in Lourdas)

Jim M           

I have visited this taverna since it opened many years ago, and the service, food and atmosphere has been consistantly good on every visit (8 years). The owner Spiros and his 2nd in command Anna never fail to give everyone a warm welcome.

Astra Bar - (Bars in Lourdas)

Jim M           

Can be a little loud sometimes but Andreas the owner plays the most varied selection of music in any bar that I have been in on the Island. The views at night over the water to Zante are stunning.

Sunbird - (Car Rental on Kefalonia)

Jim M           

Booked direct with the owner, Antonias< by phone from the UK and the car was waiting at the airport on arrival, and a new car at that. Service and quality better than any of the other companies I have used on Kefalonia (all of them!)

Olympic Holidays - (Tour Operators on Kefalonia)

Jim M           

Having travelled to the Buena Vista Studios in Lourdas with Olympic for the last 10 years, often twice a year, I have never had any reason to complain about the company at all. Comments regarding delays are not really the problem of Olympic Holidays more that of the airline, air traffic control etc.
Local staff have always been friendly and informative, but on the wages they are paid is it a surprise that they try to sell excursions and car hire, the commission is needed.
I have booked direct with the company over the phone and it is the only company (and I am an ex travel agent) where the booking clerk gave me a direct line to contact them.
I cannot comment about the current transfer arrangements as I collect a car at the airport, but in the past the only smile was raised when the Rep told the clients if the weather was inclement that "it wasn't like this yesterday and won't last".
