Antonia Studios - (Accommodation in Lourdas)

Just like to add to all the other positive comments. Makis is a good guy - easy going, relaxed...but his taste in music is appalling - take some cdís with you. The rooms are spacious, clean, hot plate, kettle, fridge...everything you need. Location is superb - view amazing, shop next door selling all you need, bars/restaurants across the road, car/bike hire 2 mins away. Myself, I hired a bike for 10 Euros a day and saw most of the south during a week long stay - Skala/Poros half an hour from Lourdas- Sami about 45 mins - Argostoli about half an hour. Sami and Argostoli definitely worth a visit. If you want to hit the beaches then transport of some description is needed if you donít fancy the half-hour walk in the sun. If youíre not into hiring a car or bike then there is a bus that runs down to Lourdas beach all day. Itís easy. There is a great beach 5 mins up the coast - great snorkelling - never found out its name but far quieter than Lourdas - which is nevertheless a great beach. So there you have it - book at Antonia if you want a quiet, chilled holiday with no idiots. The bbq is basic food wise but is a great chance to have a drink with all the other residents. Iím a bit of loner but had a great night drinking robola with some friendly folks.

Oh and Spiros is the best local restaurant. Home made Greek dishes like mousaka, kephalonian meat pie and stifado for very affordable prices...
