Lovidis Village - (Accommodation in Lourdas)

Having returned this morning after spending a week staying in these apartments I can fully recommend them.  We were made to feel welcome from the minute we arrived. They are short walk from the main drag of Lourdas but are quite a walk up and down a steep hill to the beach and beachside tavernas.  Therefore I would personally recommend hiring a car to get around.  There is so much to see and do. We used CBR who were the cheapest locally.

The apartments themselves are clean and basically furnished.  The kitchen consisted of a two ring electric stove and basic pots and pans, but suited us fine with so many local tavernas to choose from.  Our apartment was very clean upon arrival. Linen/towels/bins are changed weekly.

Many  of the apartments have marvellous views over the bay or mountainside and the location was very peaceful. It appeared only half of the apartments were occupied during our stay. Those occupied were mainly couples, so no rowdy lager louts at all.
The pool area is clean, with plenty of loungers and parasols.
The Greek family running the place were super firendly and only too happy to help with any enquiries.
Give it a go, we had a wonderfully chilled and relaxed week.

We booked our holiday at a much reduced rate via last minute.com. Olympic holidays are the main operator who you can also book through but it may cost you more.

Klimatis Restaurant - (Restaurants in Lourdas)

Having just returned from Lourdas this afternoon, and having eaten three times at this restaurant I can whole heartedly recommend this place.

Food was  fresh, of a good standard and fairly priced. Service is efficeint even when busy and staff are super friendly.
Location is best in town with sea views and a relaxed atmosphere.
Give it a go, we certainly had good food here on several occasions

 Returned from Lourdas this afternoon. Having had dinner here once during our stay

Nice restaurant with friendly staff and pretty views.
Food was alittle above  average  and not all  typically " Greek" but fairly priced,  saying that this was made up by the lovely atmosphere and great service.
Worth a try for one evening maybe.

Lorraines Magic Hill - (Restaurants in Lourdas)

We just returned from Lourdas this afternoon.

We ate at Lorraine's one evening, the place is great location on the hillside overlooking the beach. The staff were friendly and the service was great.
But have to say the food was not very good and  much less value for money than many of the other  local places we ate at. 
Saying that they  the chef may have been having a bad night,  and Its certainly worth a visit for a drink at least.

Crystal Palace Restaurant - (Restaurants in Lourdas)

One of my favourite restaurants in Lourdas. We ate there for dinner last week.

Friendly staff and great food, the most authentically Greek menu  you will find in the village.
Most dishes are fresh same day, those that were not fresh (ie frozen) were indicated on the menu, which was  certainly not the case in some of the other places we ate at.
Good value for money and  great atmosphere, well worth walking a little further for.
