Hi back home almost a week now and miss Kefalonia bad. Found the Elena Apartment easily, even if the sign post said Helena. It was everything and more that people said, they are lovely Family, Helena, Joseph and Daughters make you really welcome, which makes for a lovely relaxed, happy atmosphere, people have been going back year after year. The grounds are bueatiful and well kept. We were on the second floor, top, and had a veranda that was perfect. Pool good, clean. They go in every day to make the beds, take the rubbish, clean whatever. Certainly will go back there and plan to. Oh and Maria makes the best Greek Salad in Greece, Hubby being Greek he knows his Greek Salad.
We have booked the Elena Apartments for the end of May and cannot get the address from the Tour Company so far, could anyone help and give us the address. We are taking a car from the Airport, obviously there should be a Tour Rep at the Airport but we would like to have the address before we go.
Just returned from our third visit to Elanas. As wonderful and relaxing as ever! We booked online with Co-op travel.
could anyone please tell me how to book the elena apartments/studios i am unable to find travel agent or booking agent. thankyou.
some visitors found it difficult because the accomodation was rather basic for them and they liked their rooms to smell of bleach everyday. we had a great time. one complaint the cicadas never shut up the pool was clean and el and joe couldn't do enough for us going back next year
Went to Elena Apartments in July 2004. Had a excellent time. Pool was brilliant, DEAD relaxing. Elena and Joseph are great they make you feel realy welcome. Best holiday we've had in ages. Booked again for next year. CAN'T WAIT TO GO BACK!!
We visited kefalonia when the filming of (that film) was on the go did not meet Mr Cage though, but had a fab hol which was made all the better by staying at the elena apartments. Elena is one of the most charming and hard working people you could ever meet as is her family joseph maria and young effi,it was my birthday on our stay, my wife Josie and Elena conspired together and arranged a party for which Elena drove into Agrostroli to pick up a cake she had made for me !!(as i said charming)
Josie and i do not normally return to same place as we like to see different places and faces, but this is top of our list.
If anyone is going out there say hello from Tony(birthday cake boy)and Josie cheers.
To be quite honest, the appartments themslelves were very nice, clean comfortable and quite spacious, however, we found ourselves frequently disturbed at night by the lorries rumbling down the main(-ish) road that the Elena is located next to. I would think if you were not facing the road, then it may be a lot quieter, but it was really the only major down point of our stay in Kefalonia.... by the way, the pool bar is very expensive, so it is worth ambling down the road for cheaper drinks.
My husband and two children ages 14 & 10 have just booked for Elena apartments in May 2005, we visited Kefalonia in 2001 and stayed in lakynthra. We visited all resorts during our stay on the island, so are familiar with the resort, but are interested in opinions on the apartments and staying in the resort generally. We realise it is quiet and a car is essential!
elana is the best
returned for the second year running. was better than ever. pool great and very clean.
Smashing we had a super holiday and the Elena apartments were super.
Great pool, we had plenty of fun in it. Thanks Elena you made us very welcome.
Elena was great. She always aimed to please. But you need to relax more Elena! Thanks for a great two weeks!
I have booked for the Elena studio's this coming July and looking forward to it. After reading reviws and so on, a comment mentioned regarding a taverna, shame about the cats. I am a real animal lover and was curious as to what that meant. I frequently holiday on the greek islands and have taken pity on the strays - it really pulls at the heart strings!!!
Freindly, helpful people. Everything was just right. We want to go again right now.
really nice, very helpful, will stay again great pool.
