Just back from Eleni apts - 206 - 4/7. I can agree with everything that has been said previously on this list.Eleni is beautifully situated with lovely views of the sea and olive groves in front - like staying at a nature reserve with the noises of cats, asses, goats, birds and the many types of very noisy insects !
The apartments are extremely clean, large and bright. They were cleaned on a regular basis and new bedlinen and towels changed often. The swimming pool was very clean, with plenty of sunbeds around it. The outside bar was a lovely place to meet other guests, serving breakfast,snacks and drinks through the day. With a special meal each evening.
Costas and Alex are wonderful hosts, very friendly and helpfull. As has been said before don't miss the BBQ and Quiz night. I don't who hinted or complained while we were there but suddenly one day we all had kettles on the doorstep !!
The Kosmar brochure is correct when it mentions all the hills, you have to drag/pull your cases a few yards down/up the hill when you arrive and depart !! Be prepared.
It is quite a hill down to the tavernas, or there is a goat track through the olive groves. The tavernas, supermarkets and car hire places are all together on one road(track!) At night everyone seems to be walking to and fro around that area - it was great while the football was on !!! Fireworks after the matches !!!
Our Kosmar rep Emma was brilliant (We later met her Mom and Dad who were in Lourdas too!) very friendly, professional, helpfull and knowlegable. We booked a trip 'The Onassis Cruise' - an all day boat trip around many islands - great value at about £38.00 each.
We'll definately be going back.
We've just returned from 2 weeks at The Eleni Studios in Lourdas, Kefalonia. Booked through Kosmar - we flew from Birmingham with Thomas Cook airlines - on time, and no problems with the flight or transfers to the accomodation.
Eleni Studios are wonderful and we would recomend them to others.
Our Rep Emma was brilliant - extremely professional,helpful, approachable and knowlegable.
Kosmars brochure descriptions of the studios and Lourdas were absolutley spot on - especially describing the hilly nature of the area! With competitive prices - We wouldn't hesitate to use Kosmar again, either in Kefalonia or other Greek Islands.
