Angela Studios - (Accommodation in Lourdas)

Mick T           

Angelas was excellent. Well appointed (for Greece), Very clean and close to the beach, mini market and taverna 's. If I have one moan it was the bikes up and down the road, but thats not the fault of the apartmentss and to be honest it wasn't every night. The cat by the way was still there with at least three kittens and visited us regularly for breakfast. 

Klimatis Restaurant - (Restaurants in Lourdas)

Mick T           

We loved this place. The service was excellent as was the food. If you didn't go anywhere else you could eat here for 14 nights without geting bored.

Lorraines Magic Hill - (Restaurants in Lourdas)

Mick T           

Ok, cannot find anything to complain about. The main difference between here and the Klimatis was that the menu was not so extensive.

Sunbird - (Car Rental on Kefalonia)

Mick T           

We had a bike which we ordered from the Uk and was ready and waiting as per our request. This is a big Island though and I am going to say get a car if you want to get about. However these guys will give you as good as service as anywhere else, including delivery to your accommodation. If you don't order from the UK its a long walk up that hill to the offices.

Drogarati Cave - (Places to Visit on Kefalonia)

Mick T           

This is a big hole in the ground and I have to agree with other folks, if you've been to Wookey Hole this is'nt anywhere near it. Lots of stalagmites and tities many of them damaged. however as a natural 'wonder' if you are on a bus trip it's worth the visit, in your own transport, if you've been to Wookey Hole you will be dissappointed. 

Melissani Lake - (Places to Visit on Kefalonia)

Mick T           

We liked it. Although the queuing was a litle nauseous in the end it was well worth it and I wouild reccomend this by bus tour or in your car. Apart from the natural wonder what made it for us was the 'ferryman'. Broken English but full of life!

St Georges Castle - (Places to Visit on Kefalonia)

Mick T           

Miss this and (my opinion) you have missed one of the best places to visit on the Island. The Castle is much the same as any other but the views are fantastic and after the taverna at the castle is the ideal place to end the visit.

Fiskardo - (Resorts on Kefalonia)

Mick T           

Fiskardo is busy to say the least. Packed with tourists. But you cannot deny that it is pcturesque. this is the third time we have been there and it doesn't change. You will pay more for souvenirs and food but there are plenty of tavernas to eat in and generally the quality is good. Miss it and you have missed one of the best places on the Island

Day trip to Ithaca - (Kefalonia Excursions)

Mick T           

We booked this through our tour operators (Manos). Can't re-call the cost but it was reasonable. The day is long but in our opinions more than worth it. The places to visit and the views during the trip outweigh the time spent on the coach. I would reccommend this either independantly (probably cheaper) or with your tour operator.

Island Tour by coach - (Kefalonia Excursions)

Mick T           

Booked this tour with our operator. No doubt it can be found cheaper but in Lourdas that means a lot of up hill walking so I'm not complaining. The day is long but worth it, visiting the major sights (Fiskardo, Melissani lake and Drogorarti caves).

Lourdas Resort - (Resorts on Kefalonia)

Mick T           

Lourdas is ok. We stayed at Angelas apartments which I reccommend. It is at the bottom of the hill and close to mini market, and taverna's with no effort involved to get to them. The hill is a killer. If you are not used to walking then this (unless you stay at the bottom) is not the place for you. However the beach is great, the taverna's on the beach cannot be faulted for service or price and if you don't want to hire a car will not need anywhere else.

Manos - (Tour Operators on Kefalonia)

Mick T           

We have only ever travelled with Manos to Greece. This was no different to any other time. Flight with My Travel (excellent out and in got bak nearly an hour early. The rep at our accomodation was Claire who was great. Didn't need her services but her local knowledge and advice was superb.

Patritcia - (Restaurants in Lourdas)

Mick T  (September 03, 2005)         

Although we didn't have what you would describe as a main meal here we found that, the staff were friendly, the food was excellent and reasonably priced. We were already in love with the Klimatis when we tried Patricias at lunch time. I would though say that you will not be dissappointed with this establishment (I hope).
