Thanks for info on Medusa we are going there in late Aug and I like Vicki was anxious about the noise after a bad experience in Sidari!!
Sounds like a quiet place how near the beach is it? Are there buses to other parts as we only usually get a car for part of our holiday.
How are the roads on the island I have been told to get a jeep but had a car already booked!
ok so i need an hour to write about our two weeks in katelios.
medusa good, clean, two loos in appt which was good and a sea view. the front room did look over the taverna and the kids moaned about the noise. it was in keeping though and when you are staying above a taverna to be expected. food there good by the way and kind folk.
sadly we were woken up by very antisocial family behind us in the appts shouting each night as they came in. parents as bad as the kids but thats not the tavernas fault.
we found all much dearer than we did corfu. even taking into account the low £. was a shock and lidl in argostaoli was dearer than home for many things.
venus car hire ok but the brakes were very worn and went on us which was scarey.40km with no front brake ... no fun. did call company but no help as ' garage closed now' . hubby took wheel off to look and no shoes left on brake at all.in the am they fixed it fast but still let us drive home with none the night it went.
shops in katelios ok but not much there.
next beach over karminia . is amazing and blue bits of ribbon do guide over the rocks. but i did find it p***kly throuh the bushes. worth it though sandy and warm water . lovely.the beach by village just a bit dirty.
did not like the taverna at end (elli something. lots of lights past beach bar.) meze poor and a bit anglo for me why go away if you want oukka pies?..........
the garden taverna was good. friendly. giros pita 1. 60 euro. but sadly only found that at end of holiday.
hubby and son climbed the mountain. long haul but they thought is well worth it.
loved many places and beaches. would prefer not aug next as gather it is the busiet. now seems a good time as was just getting quiet as we left.noticed that there is a lot of construction in katelios. they put a pavement down the whole valley while we were there and lots of buildings going up. we will not know it next time we go.
none of the towns big and we liked them all. i liked sami as a busy port. antisamos a lovely beach but getting busy. good swimming there as deep and clear to see the fish.
manos good loved the trip called lazy eliza. relaxed and well run by a local who was interesting and pleasant.
sadly we found a few folk not so pleasant and had the food thrown on the conveyer at a big supermkt. maybe they are just sick of us tourists. and the corelli thing. got me thnking ...they have been invaded again............
Agree about the traditional nature of this place.
Good restaurant called o Faro or something which means lighthouse but they only take cash.
