Plus points: quite roomy, plenty of drawers and hanging space,exeptionally clean,big fluffy towels (normally in Greece they are like big t towels) linen and towels changed twice per week, good views from most rooms, two small pools well looked after.
Negatives: all reviews and brochure state 15 - 20 mins out of town, not so, more like 30 mins to the centre at least.It is possible to walk back but in 30+ deg heat not advisable for comfort, but taxis are only €4. If you want to nip in and out of the town not the place to be.
The 'going rate' for 'aircon' is €5 per night but here they charge €60 per week or €100 per fortnight.
We hadn't even put our cases on the floor in the apartment and had parted with €130 for aircon and roomsafe. (we expected charges, but thought this was ott).
The nearest supermarket is 20mins walk away (near to the castle).
We knew there was no bar, but there is what they describe as a 'bar' supposed to be open 9.30am-1.30pm that was hit and miss but you could get water,canned beer,juice and a few other items. (NO bread,milk,sugar,tea,coffee,basics??? duhh!!)
There is a TV in the room and some rooms were able to get Sky News!! we however could get a rolling screen, we did report it to the owners but nothing was done. I didn't come on holiday to watch TV but as the Olympics were on it would have been usefull.
The 'kitchen' leaves a lot to be desired, the equipment is very sparse/old and the pans are huge 23cms diameter approx,why? because the two rings are 17cm and 10cm approx and the biggest of the two in our case didn't work! we didn't plan to make four course meals but it would have been handy to boil an egg for breakfast! They don't say there is a toaster and there isn't so don't bank on that! Tip; take a small sharp knife, we didn't have one.
We reported the cooker to the owners and the Rep but it was never fixed.
The bathroom was ok,clean,plenty of hot water but on arrival no handsoap! Not even a little tiny guest soap to wash your hands,I found that to be a bit mean to say the least.So make sure you pack a little one in your hand luggage for when you arrive.
The owners were not the friendliest of Greeks that I have come across,polite, but that's it.
Parga is lovelly and I would like to return in the future,but not to this acccomodation.
