Seven Cafe Bar - (Bars in Lourdas)

What I wouldn`t give to sat back here in the late afternoon sun, drinking ice cold Mythos, listening to the Buddha Bar CD and watching the world float by.

Guys who work there, really friendly and welcoming

F Zeen (Ionian Sun) Hotel - (Accommodation in Lourdas)

We chose a 1 bed apartment to avoid the so called "dungeon like" studios. However, when we saw them, they looked great and speaking to people who were in them, they were having a lovely time. I think those comments are a very poor representation.

We were in the top apartments which, for Greece, were really very nice. None of the usual bare wires hanging out of holes in the wall and big brown stains from insect repellant machines. Everything worked, was spotlessly clean, the air con. was included in the price and the view was unbelievable. Tall fir trees against violet blue sea... The 140 or so steps to the top block are well maintained and adequately lit. I would still stick a small torch in your pocket though. My wife and I are in our 30`s and fairly fit, so we didn`t have a problem going up and down here a few times a day, but if you are planning on carrying young kids and all the associated equipment up and down, or are disabled or seriously out of shape, it may be difficult. To be honest, we quite enjoyed it, because it was very shady and quite pretty.
 
Pool and pool bar were good, although we tended to use the beach.
 
I thoroughly enjoyed my holiday here, and although i probably won`t go back to the same appts, as we never do, I wouldn`t have a problem going back or recommending them.

Lorraines Magic Hill - (Restaurants in Lourdas)

This a great location, but I agree the food is a bit hit or miss. The staff are very friendly although Lorraine, full of enthusiasm and gusto at the begining of the evening, seems to fade a bit as the night goes on.

Give it a go, we didn`t have anything inedible, some of the food was good and some average, the house wine was good and the cocktails were rubbish, but the view is great, especially at sunset.

Sunbird - (Car Rental on Kefalonia)

I don`t know about being "beautiful" I would have to ask my wife, but Tasos was very prompt delivering our car, helpful recommending places to visit, and where to avoid, and even remembered our names and shouted and waved as we drove past.

Oh, and the Suzuki Jimny open top jeep was a great choice.
