just got back from the beautiful island of kefalonia. we went on the island tour with Kosmar which was 36 euros each picked up from the hotel at 7.45 what a spectacular day started of at the monastary of St grissimos then on to the robola wine tasting. then on to the dragoti caves and messilini lakes(which is an extra 8 euros per person) then a stop on the top of the mountain to look down on myrtos beach which is fantastic (if you get the time drive down its worth a visit)then on to Fiskardo this we did not like, its a long drive in a coach to the top of the island, yet when you get there its just a harbour with loads of yachts and snobs.....................and very expensive.............then there is a two hour drive back to the hotel its a very long day as you are in the coach for most of it. well worth it if you do not hire a car.but beware of the dragoti caves. there are 123 steps which are very high its alright going down but to get back up is a nightmare, only the fit to go down there.
what a fantastic place! went there for the first time last week.....................fantastic food try their english breakfast included is tea or coffee juice and ice cold water for just 7.50 euros
great bar watched all the football theres huge t.v. screens the waiters are great and very friendly.
just returned last week from the eleana apartments. a really nice place the rooms are spacious and the maids come every day to clean them and change sheets twice a week.there are no plugs in the sinks or bath............and there are no kettles grills or microwaves just a hot plate with two rings so when making a cup of tea it takes hours.................take your own kettle............
just returned from skala we stayed first week in october
what a fantastic beach we viewed it from the top, and then drove down to the bay.
went to the lake and found it very interesting you walk down a very steep tunnel and then you get on to a rowing boat.................the man in the boat was very friendly taking photos for the people on the boat, but it was a very short visit took about 8 minutes..................but it was spectacular if its a choice between the lake or the caves go to the lakes..........
visited this beach october 2007.
IF YOU NEED A CAR GO TO GREEKSTONES.
WE STAYED HERE 0CTOBER 2008
