Katerina Studios - (Accommodation in Svoronata)

Liz H           

Just returned from a very long week at Katerina.

As soon as we got there we were put on separate floors,even though we had requested 2 adjacent rooms.We asked George if we could be moved but he replied that he was full-a clear lie as my husband and son were the only ones on the second floor all week.George then insulted my husband,passing offensive comments about his bald head.
 
Accomodation basic to say the least.No kettle,so water took 30 minutes to boil in a pan on the electric ring.Our toilet seat was broken and the bathroom window would not open. The shower room is very dangerous, as waste water settles on the floor.Make sure you wear flip-flops when going into the bathroom,otherwise you will slip and fall,as my daughter did.
 
If you are a light sleeper take earplugs.George makes so much noise in the bar at night, he will keep you awake until at least 3am.He was changing barrels at 2am regularly.
 
The location is ok.You must like walking! It is better to book your care hire before you go and get it dropped off at your accomodation. The bus service is rubbish! However,the walking is great and you get to see the real Greece.An hour around Svoranata to Ammes beach and back is great.Lots of wild life-birds,bats,lizards,butterflies,insects. The flowers,olive ,lemon and orange groves are gorgeous.
 
Thank goodness for the avithos complex on the way to avithos beach.Brand new,great pool,changing facilities for the last day.Also 3 beaches to choose from-sea beautiful,
 
Not a holiday for young children or people who want more to do.The Katerina is great if you want to watch sport and get drunk everynight,but then you can do that at home!
