My wife and I managed to book a last minute holiday with Ionion Island Holidays which was for a studio apartment in Matsoukata on Kefelonia Greece. The reps were very helpful as soon as they realised my wife had mobile problems. The coach trip from the airport took us up the west coast of the island and the views were fantastic, and gave us a good idea what the Island was like.
Our apartment was on the east side of the Island and the view from our balcony overlooked Ithica and the yachts sailing up the channel. Unlike the west coast the pine and Cyprus trees covered the hills. But the peacefulness of the area imprest us the most . The apartment was a lot better and larger than we expected, and as the kitchen was well equipped we ate in a few nights.
The welcome hamper was handy and kept us going till i walked into the local supermarket in Manganos the following morning. I could have used the car but I find you see more walking. Most days we spent by the pool, and had it to ourselves after the other residence went off to explore the delights of Kefalonia. We stayed at the apartment for the first few days to unwind, and the owners wife kindly came to check if my wife was managing with the steps and if we need anything. The car provided met our needs and even coped with the twisting road out of Assos, which is a must place to visit. As was Fiskardo if you like a more lively place to eat. And watch the posh boats coming into the harbour from all over the world. We would have liked to stay an extra week, even though we would have lost money on our returned flight. But the Alexanna apartments were fully booked.
HOW DID WE RATE OUR HOLIDAY 100/100. Their office in the UK and Fiskardo were helpful and suggested places we could visit, and even arranged a taxi to save my wife travelling in the mini bas to the coach, which would take us to the airport. They even had a wheelchair waiting for her at the airport.
WOULD WE GO AGAIN? YES. But next time we would go earlier as it shouldn't be as hot and the rates are lower.
ADVISE TO FUTURE GUESTS. Bring a good pair of binoculars, and your walking boots if you like walking.
