The staff at the Summery were without exception, friendly, polite and helpful. I have never met nicer people than the Kefalonians anywhere in the world and that is the single reason we have visited the island twice this year! we could learn a lot from them.
The Summery is clean and tidy and everything works just as it should. The breakfast provided is great and should appeal to anyone not wanting a 'Full English' every morning (If you want that, stay in Fiskardo!)
Lixouri is a great base and hiring a car soon gets you out to the major sights, towns and beaches.
We got a taxi from the airport to the port which cost 20 Euros and then crossed as foot passengers for 2.50 Euros each. Got off the ferry, turned left and walked the 5 minutes to the Summery. Very easy indeed.
There is a great beach at Lepeda a lovely 20/25 minute walk away. Come out of the front of the hotel and turn left. You can walk on the beach for the last bit but you might have to wade a bit! There is a fantastic beach cafe which serves really good, fresh food. Try the Meatballs they are superb and the Greek salad is the best I have ever tasted!
I would reccommend this hotel to anyone wanting to enjoy the more 'Greek' side of Kefalonia.
