Sunrise Village - (Accommodation in Svoronata)

Mel C           

We have just returned from Sunrise village appts at Svoronata and there are a few comments i would like to make. Please dont take any notice of the rantings about cats dogs and wet floors by others who have visited. The masionettes are 2 bedrooms 2 bathrooms, a very basic kitchenette with 2 balconies and 2 shared terraces. The site can get quite breezy in the late afternoon but it is generally quiet (Sun & Tues busiest airport days with about 10 planes max) and the nearby beach, Ammes, quite pleasant. If you are without transport there is a small shop and a taverna in Sotiris appts behind Sunrise, and plenty of tavernas/minimarkets about 10- 20mins gentle stroll up the road towards the village. I am afriad we did not try the wall climbing exercise to cut the journey so cannot comment on that. We saw 1 solitary, though pregnant, cat, 2 puppies, several lizards and a couple of flat roadkill snakes. The Sunrise cannot be seen from the appts , but there is a wonderful view of the Sunset behind the Lixouri peninsular.
My main advice to any one staying here is to hire a car for at least a few days, as the Island is well worth seeing, bring a plug-in mosií repellant, and get pool shoes for the kids as the bottom of the pool is quite rough.
The good points, quiet area, beautful pool and bar area, clean accomodation not huge but not cramped, (dont worry about the joint window business) plenty of sunbeds and if you have a car, good central location.
Bad points occasional aircraft noise, but not after 10.30, floor tiles slippery when wet (watch the balcony if hanging washing) and the family that run it are not very helpful or particularly friendly. All together we enjoyed our stay. Mel Scott and girls June 04
