We spent 7 nights at Liakoto in early May this year. Our hosts Geraldine and Ilia were superb, the epitome of Greek/British/Irish hospitality. The accommodation was top rate and spacious with glorious sea (Aegean) and mountain (Taygetos) views. The pool and hotel bar were spotless and the sea swimming fro the pier steps was a mere pebbles throw from the pool.
Everything that you need for a good restful or sporty holiday break - shops, restaurants, tavernas, churches, bike hire, a newsagent, car hire, local buses, small supermarkets, walking trails, nearby rock climbing and sea swimming - is available in the village of Kardamili. Kardamili also boasts its own charming museum in the old town by the fortified ruins and many living and recently deceased writers including Patrick Leigh Fermor lived there. While we were there we were invited to a book launch by a local expat English writer on a English journal of a Colenel Leake. The local food is fresh, seasonal and amazingly economical every restaurant meal we had seemed to cost 22 euros before wine.
For days when you do not want to go to a restaurant, self catering supplies are available from the Dimitera mini supermarket and the owner Helen will provide visitors with good conversation and local tips on any subject.
We have already booked to go back (our 4th time) for a month in the autumn - maybe a whole winter next year.More
