We travelled to the Garden village in October half term week. Myself, my wife and our seven year old. Well to be honest I dont have much to add to all the other excellent reviews really. Superb apartments, excellent location, fabulous staff and service second to none. We have a 'never go back to the same place twice' rule. However if we do go back to Greece, which I am sure we will because we love everthing about it, I dont see any point in going anywhere else other than to the Garden Village. A highlight was the Greek night, great fun and excellent food, especially the Moussaka. Well done to you all.
Kalamaki was very nice, very quiet when we were there, however just the way we wanted it. A handful of bars and restaurants open, a decent choice. The beach was very clean with lovely clear water. We did walk down to Laganas one day and to be honest the beach there was awful. You can walk to Laganas via the beach or the road, either way it is a good 45 min walk. We also walked to Zakynthos town, which took around 90 mins, well worth the walk though. Taxi back was 10 Euro.
Fav restaurants were Heras and Heavens kitchen, 2 x adult meals and a childs meal, with plenty of wine/beer around 40 Euro. The Heavens beef in heavens kitchen is a must try, the 'flaming' Lamb Kleftiko was great too. We did try Zepo's near the beach, great food, a bit more expensive, and take the mossie spray!
All in all, a great 'cheeky' half term week away.
