We have just returned from another week at Saoulas. Eleni has improved the bar area over the winter months, with a further addition of a large screen TV.
We had a lovely 2 weeks at Saoulas Studios. The rooms were basic but for self catering it was very good and the rooms were cleaned every few days. It is a family run place and they all made you feel welcome. The BBQ night was very good, and was a way of meeting the other people holidaying there. There were 3 good shops close by with one (Petros) next door. We ate out every night and there was a great choice, as there must be a least 7 place's to eat. I would definately stay there again and recommend it to anyone wanting a quiet, peaceful and beautiful holiday.
We have just booked again for 2012. This place must be getting popular because only 2 rooms left for the week we want to go.
We had a fantastic week there again this May, returning after we had a week there in September 2010.
We stayed at Spiradoula this September with Manos, but we disappointed we had to vacate the accomodation at 10am on departure day. There was not even a courtesey room and our luggage was to be left at La Mer restaurant.
Very good accommodation. I agree with Antony..... the owners are not the most patient or understanding people on the island! Eat or drink by the pool at your peril. Spacious, clean, nice pool, shop 20mtrs away, at least 8 restaurants within 5 mins, a car is absolutely vital if you want to get around.
The best part of our holiday was the late night gatherings with fellow guests and the local wines and beers from the nearby shop.
Good place to stay, we'll be back.

Excellent place for family and kids and couples, need hire a car or bike to go out, they promise air conditioner for next year and bar point, I suggest to Olympic to have a chat with the owner to move for another place, not to live in.they are good peoples,but its not nice to live in there.
Excellent beeches near by.
Mini markets very close,all yours needs is close, nice restaurants,close to the capital augostoli.
just go and enjooe.
Ideal location to base our holiday from, the apartment was clean and had everything we needed, fantastic view of mount enos from our balcony. Managed to cook a couple of meals on the two electric rings aswell. Couldn't really have asked for anything different from an apartment!
Be careful to avaoid room 12. It's right next to the boiler room and we spent a sleepless night when the boiler went wrong. Kosmar transferred us to another appartment block
Clean and spacious apartments very close to mini markets and 5 min from 4-5 tavernas. Everyone who stays there enjoys it but longish walk back from the beach can be tiring if it's very hot. Worth hiring a car and driving to surrounding beachs such as Pouros/Skala, although Lourdas has a good sandy clean beach with all necessary facilities.
We will be staying in these studios during August 2002 and would welcome any useful information about the apartments and location.
