Despite my comments (19th Sept)and the action taken by our tour company, I can say unreservably that Sue and I had a wonderful holiday at the Eleni. As has been said by all those who have passed comment before me, our hosts Kostas and Alex were first class, as was the accommodation, the location, the resort and of course Kefalonia.
However, I wish the Eleni could be transported down to the bottom of the hill, but then of course you would loose the terrific views over Lourdas Bay. We had a fantastic first week, when we enjoyed the company of some really great people and a special thanks to Steve and Jayne with whom we shared a lot of laughs, and sorry to those who were kept awake in the early hours by the ABBA revival!
Our second week was very different to the first and a good deal quieter, having said goodbye to every single one of our co-guests at the Eleni, by courtesy of our tour operators. However Kostas would not dream of letting us move out to another location as had been arranged, kindly letting us stay on at the Eleni. But I have to say it was a trifle lonely with only the cats for company!
I know it's a bore repeating what's been said before, but I can't sign off without saying that Kostas is not just a great guy and a lot of fun, but probably just about the best chef in Lourdas.
Good Luck Alex and Kostas thank you for making our stay so enjoyable and lets hope all goes well for you in 2004.
Fred and Sue Barnes, (Sept 27th to Oct 11th 2003).
P.S as a bonus our return flight left early and we even got home in time to see the highlights of the England v Turkey match.
Kostas and Alex, congratulations to you both on your recent wedding.
Sue and I were just scrolling through the website for old times sake and noticed the comments from one of your guests this year, which suggested you may have recently wed. Very best wishes to and good luck to you both for the future. From the comments so far this year, it is evident that your service to your customers is still secvond to none. Keep up the good work until we see you again sometime.
By the way we are still in contact with Jayne and Steve (The Champions), and will be seeing them again shortly.
Best Wishes Fred and Sue ( Libra Warriers)
