Olive Grove Studios - (Accommodation in Svoronata)


We have just been to the Olive Grove and its brilliant, throughly recommend it.  Quiet, very pretty and clean.  Gardens are lovely and there are some beautiful cats there - (give the black and white one some food he has a sore mouth and needs a bit of help poor thing!).  The apartments are clean and nice, although quite basic for self catering just two rings no kettle or anything. Pool good, quite big and like 2/3 pools jouned together. Wonderful beach at Avithos and great tavernas nearby especially Preview, food great and waiter very nice. Good idea to hire a car though.

Good mini market not too far away, very friendly and well stocked.
Would love to go back some time.

Kalafatis Restaurant - (Restaurants in Argostoli)


We ate at Kalafatis a few times loving the view and eating right on the waters edge.  The food was good, the meat or vegetable soup is excellent and the main meals very nice, too many nice ones to choose from!
We enjoyed various meals - moussaka, souvlaki, chicken. meatballs.spaghetti bolognese all nice.  Only downside was the staff, the young man on the pavement trying to encourage you in is very nice and not overpoweringly pushy but the waitress (who always worked in the evening!) was awful - very slow, we waited 30 minutes to order on our last visit, would have gone somewhere else but the food was good and we were looking forward to various meals on the menu so waited - but didn't go again after that!
