The panorama apartments are the cleanest and most modern we have stayed in during our recent holidays to greek islands.Although a steep walk up the hill, the views are wonderful.The swimming pool area is clean and child friendly.The bar next to it serves up a well chilled "Mythos"!! We ate in a variety of restaurants, La Gondola and the captains table in Argostoli were excellent. I had the best stuffed vine leaves ever at the captains table.We had July temperatures, it reached 41 c on the last day!!! - a bit too hot.One note of disappointment though,I do not consider the greek islands to be a cheap destination anymore in terms of food and drink etc.Both last year in Samos and this year in Keffalonia, we noticed a hike up in prices.Expect to pay 10 Euros for 2 sunbeds at the long beach,3 Euros for a small beer, and 4 Euros for a very small taxi journey. Whilst appreciating that the local economy depends on tourism to a massive degree, I feel that they have gone too far. It is sad to say that next year we will think twice about Greece being our destination!
The best beach we have ever been to. The sand is clean (and red hot come 11am!!), the sea is as clear as crystal, and was mainly flat calm when we were there. We found that when you go down the steps on to the beach, turn right and go to the far end where there are some rocks in the water. My daughter snorkelled here for the first time and couldnt belive the amount of fish present.
I thought that the man who charged 10 Euros for two sunbeds was ripping people off. One day he gave me a receipt, the next few days he didnt, wonder why??. Like other things in Keffalonia, it is sad to say that overcharging seems to have become the norm. But going back to the beach it is great, it even betters the one we spent time on in Cuba last year.
We used to have our first drink of the evening here when the sun was setting. Loveley location, fountains and good music. The drinks were okay, like anywhere else they were in our opinion overpriced.
