Katerina Studios

Accommodation in Svoronata

      
Colin R          9/10

I visited these apartments back in august 1998 and to say I had a fantastic time here was an under estimate-Definetly not for the young snd lively,but the location and tranquility is superb.Just 5 mins transfer from kefalonia airport,avithos and minies beach have the most clear golden beaches I have ever seen.George is a bit of a character,but I  spent many a fun night at his bar he even took us clubbing one night,and gave us a lift to avithos beach on his motorbike.A very freindly guy I cant fault the apartments,the only grinch was that the water ran out by 4pm,so you couldent shower unless you got your partner to pour a bottle of mineral water over you-but that wasnt  georges fault-caution though-watch gerorges measures of alcohol,might leave you with a hangover the next day!!!

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!

We returned 27 July and found the standard of cleaniness in the apartment excellent. The location was quiet but some tavernas nearby plus a supermarket a few minutes walk away (you can exchange your travellers cheques here). To get the best from your holiday we would recommend hiring a car. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves but this location is not for people liking a noisy nightlife.

Hi, Off to Svoranta next week Aug 3rd staying at Sotiris studios and apartments does anyone know what the accomodation is like and what is there to do in the evening ? Thanks

We are just back from Svoronata and were very impressed with the standard at George and Katerina's place. They, and their lovely daughter, Angelina were extremely pleasant and helpful thoughout our week long stay. We were situated on the top floor of the apartment building and found the studio very airy and charming with wood clad, coombed ceilings. Being 5mins from the airport was not a problem as the airport is not too busy. This must be the nicest, best maintained island ever! We will definately be back very soon.

We didn't stay at Katerina Studios, but were frequent visitors at George's Bar. WHAT A GRREAT PLACE!!!. We're going back to Svoronata in 2003, you can guess where our first port of call will be... George, if you have clicked on to this, we will e-mail you some time soon. The best little bar in Kefalonia..

We stayed here last year and had a wonerful holiday, George is a character and quiet a nice guy. The first week we were in a room above the bar, I am a light sleeper and found it too noisy, we put this to George and he moved us to a bigger room at the back of the block and we never heard a sound!! Good move there George. The Olive Grove pool was brilliant we had it almost to ourselves for the entire holiday and that was in August!!! Svoronata is a very small place with not a lot going on just a couple of bars and a few eating places but it suited our needs, that was to chill out, and that we did.
