The Palatino is above the town, in its own private grounds. The staff were freindly although they did have a tendancy to have the tv on aloud in the bar in the evenings. It wasn't exactly cheap there - but then the Euro is rising. The pool and outside area is lovely - clean and peaceful. Apparently tour operator JMC pulled out of Kefalonia, so understaffed and quieter than normal, but this enhanced the stay. Lixouri Town is not too touristy and definatley benefits from this, we'd definately recommend it here at the Palatino. Mark and Natasha say hello to all the friends we made here!
