Aristomenis Studios - (Accommodation in Lourdas)

Sophie H           

Aristomenis Studio's are clean, well equipped and in a beautiful location. However, if you have a room near the pool it is extremely noisy, loud music playing until 2am, people shouting etc. I know that a lot of people enjoy this type of night life when holiday, and if you do then you will have a great time. I go on holiday to get away from all that and prefer to come home well rested rather than exhausted!

Spiros Restaurant - (Restaurants in Lourdas)

Sophie H           

Try the Greek Island or La Mer! The meals we had (Kefalonia fish pie/ vegetarian moussaka) seemed to have been reheated in a microwave, the fish pie is to be avoided...

La Mer Restaurant - (Restaurants in Lourdas)

Sophie H           

An excellent restaurant, good food which is fresh and properly cooked (Spiros and Casa de Blue could learn a thing or two about that!), staff friendly and helpful. We ate here several times during a two week stay in Lourdas and all the dishes we tried were of an equally high quality.

Greek Islands - (Restaurants in Lourdas)

Sophie H  (July 24, 2003)         

This place is great! The food is excellent, well cooked and fresh; the staff are friendly and the owner is always on hand to help you with the menu, check things are OK and to hand out the free metaxa (and on occasion, plates of watermelon). This was our favourite place to eat in Lourdas - try the swordfish.

Lourdas Beach - (Beaches on Kefalonia)

Sophie H           

Beautiful. Perfect swimming (when the sea was calm!). There is an excellent local bus service up and down the hill (goes all the way up to Vlahata and across to Trapezaki beach too, it makes it even better knowing that you don't have to walk back up the hill...

Kosmar - (Tour Operators on Kefalonia)

Sophie H           

The flight was good (Islandflug - airmiles) although the food was inedible. Once in Lourdas the reps were excellent - very helpful and knowledgable (Emma). Our only complaint was that we could have done with being told how long we'd be on the coach for on the 'Sami by night' trip - we weren't expecting 4 hours on the coach! We'd certainly use Kosmar again.

Archeological Museum (closed) - (Places to Visit on Kefalonia)

Sophie H           

This type of small museum really puts some of those in Britain to shame. Well maintained, well displayed and above all interesting.

Korgialenio Museum - (Places to Visit on Kefalonia)

Sophie H           

This is exactly what a small museum of this type should be like, it is one of the best of it's type that I've seen. Really excellent if you're interested in learning about the history of the island and how it's people have lived.
