Aug 2011-We booked this as a lovely break for the two of us without the kids.  Unfortunately my other half couldn't go due to last minute work commitments.  So with trepidation, i decided to go alone on holiday for the first time ever!  Needless to say my concerns were completely extinguished on arrival.  The transfer is more like 5 minutes than 20, which is great. i then met Voula......this woman is amazing! There is no other word to describe her.  From the moment i arrived she mad me feel welcome and comfortable and at ease.  Dispelling all my fears.  The first thing she did was pour me a drink, which calmed my nerves.  Her daughter Esme is great to chat too and funny.  If you ever have the pleasure of staying with Voula and her lovely family, trust me, it is one holiday you will always remember.  I am going to go back next year and take my 7 year old son with me.  I caught the local bus to Argostoli, which cost 1.60 Euros.  The 15minute journey took me through Lassi.  When i arrived in Argostoli, i was amazed at the number of coffee shops! The harbour was so beautiful, the shops are varied, which was nice and made a change to the usual tourist shops that sell tat.  Though there were a few of these, the number was relatively small.  The last thing i should mention, i usually take cleaning wipes when i go on holiday (as i like to make sure things are 'really' clean), i never even opened the packet!! Spotless apartments! A HUGE thank you to Voula and her family. Love Tricia Chambers
