Venus Car Rental - (Car Rental on Kefalonia)

Mark C           

Costas has charged me 100 euros for a Suzuki Jimny for two days.
Costas is a very nice man,and is much cheaper than the others.
He has let me reserve the car by e-mail and is even delivering it to our appartments.Other cars are much cheaper,but nowhere near as much fun.

Galini Apartments - (Accommodation in Katelios)

Mark C           

Couldn't get in this year & had to make do with next door & walk over to galini each day.
"Fantastic" doesn't do it enough credit.
The owners are great.Vikki,who manages the place on a day to day basis,is great,all the staff are great,the pool & everything else is great.Terry,who managed the place last year,has packed it all in in search of international rock stardom,but I think he'll still be there next year.Hello to Keith,Den,Andreas,Adriana,Richard at Katelios restaurant & anyone I've forgotten.See you next year maybe.

Costas kept his word re the Jimny booked by e-mail,but it had been in an accident so he upgraded me to a Vitara & reduced the price to 95 euros.
I went to sort it all out at 6 o'clock the night before my hire period & he let me take it there & then without extra cost.
TOP MAN.

Katelios Resort - (Resorts on Kefalonia)

To Leonie
Katelios is very quite indeed.The pace of life is very,very relaxing.If you want a "do nothing" full chill out holiday then Katelios is ideal.There's one taxi,two shops & enough restaurants to last at least two weeks.Everybody makes you feel very welcome.The beach is garbage,but there are lots of uncrowded pools,where alcomers are welcome(Galini appts is the best one)It is definitely a 4 book holiday.If mobile try Skala(7k away)(13 euros in a taxi)plus there's a good beach half way to skala.

Olive Garden Apartments - (Accommodation in Lassi)

Mark C           

ATTN : THOMAS ADAMS
REF : OLIVE GARDENS

THEY ARE IN THE UNIJET SUMMER SUN BROCHURE(SUMMER 2004-1st EDITION)

IF YOU WANT AN EVEN QUIETER HOLIDAY,TRY GALINI APPTS IN KATELIOS
(THOMSON).IT'S NOT AS BUSY AS LASSI & APPTS ARE AT LEAST AS GOOD AS
OLIVE GARDEN & THE HILL IS A LOT LESS SEVERE.

Olympic Holidays - (Tour Operators on Kefalonia)

Mark C           

Flight : (Excel Airways)Bang on time both ways.Meals garbage,737 too small for distance.
Transfer : ok arrival,rep didn't show on return,driver confused,bit of a mess.
Accomodation : 4 people,3 single beds.Given camp bed on day 2.
Rep : Only saw her when giving out return pick up notices.Told me she had resigned.
Overall : Olympic will seem pretty poor if you are used to Thomsons,but who cares,it was hot & sunny & I was too chilled to care.

The Pines - (Restaurants in Skala)

Mark C           

The best Greek restaurant that I have ever eaten in.
Try the Lamb dish under the House specialities"its superb.
Thought the olive paste & lurpack that accompanied the bread was much poorer than the olive & sundried tomato paste & garlic butter served in 2002.Apparently the head chef has set up another restaurant in Skala,the name of which escapes me,but the owner must have found another with equal talents.Well done Pines.
