I checked trip adviser out for comments on the Felix Residence and I can confirm that what people have written is absolutely true, this place is great, Efie, Pasquale & the staff do a great job, Pasquale checks the pool water every morning at 7AM so even the pool is tip top, the kitchenette is limited but hey we are only doing breakfast, the apartment we are in is very good, the furnishings are all in very good condition, as someone previously mentioned a car is essential here, the Felix offer car rental at 30 Euros a day which is the going rate, they only use the bigger companies so you can rest assured that your car will be OK if you get it from them.
The nearest beach is probably 2-3K away, easy going down there but you'd have to be pretty fit to walk back up so the car is essential. I've visited many Greek Islands but I have to say since doing a round the Island by car trip Kefalonia is certainly the most beautiful. We stayed a night at Assos which is lovely but we didn’t get the peace and tranquility we have here at the Felix. We did a trip over to Zante yesterday which you can get from Passada (10 mins away) which takes you into St Nicolas Port, we were disappointed by Zante but if you fancy a trip then take your car, we didn’t & paid the price as there appears to be no buses from the port & car hire Co’s prey on it (50-60 Euros a day), the fare over on foot is 8 Euro’s a head each way, the car is 32 Euro’s each way, if you buy a one way ticket then you will have to purchase your return the other side (look out for the beat up old Mercedes with a cardboard sign on the windscreen saying “tickets” !!)
As you have probably already gathered we are not talking in the past tense as we are still here (16th July 12) I’ve looked into staying two more weeks but due to some incoming work commitments we have to go back unfortunately. So in a nut-shell we will be back at the Felix next year if not before, as someone has already written I am a little apprehensive of spoiling things by writing this but quite frankly it's in appreciation to Efie & Pasquale. Have fun, we are.
