“Family atmosphere, feel at home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2011

What can you say about The Saoulas Studios, from the minute you arrive to the moment you leave you are made to feel like part of the family, as mentioned before the current photos don't do the resort or villas any justice, the rooms are very clean and very well equipped. The pool at the studios is perfect size for relaxing and is kept very clean. The food in the bar is very fresh and all grown locally, you can't get anymore organic. The service from Elene, Elena and the star of the show Victoria is impeccable, nothing is too much to make you feel welcome. The prices are extremely reasonable considering the food and service, they hold regular quizzes, a barbecue and karaoke night. The resort offers everything you need in easy reach including the beach. Although hiring a car is advisable to see this fantastic island. Other resorts are a little more commercialised but Lourdas is still full of the fantastic hospitality that the Greeks are renowned for. All in all the Saoulas Studios is a fantastic base to relax and explore.

The Pictures in Brochure and websites are dated and do not do it justice, Stunning views from the balcony of The Ionian sea, the mountains and Zante. Great Value for money, An excellent base if your traveling around (we had a car), if your staying around the studios the pool is probably one of the cleanest on the island, and the walk to the beach is a trek downhill, the rooms are basic, you get what you pay for, full size fridge, small TV with built on VCR (not much good unless you understand Greek)an air conditioning unit, dressing table, wardrobe, shower/wet room toilet, and you cannot fault the cleanliness, Pauline cleans the bar and pool area everyday at 8am and the rooms are cleaned daily with new sheets and towels changed midweek. Full credit to Elena, Victoria (Elenas interpreter and hard working barmaid) & Pauline they are very friendly, hard working and will try and accommodate any requests. The Cooking facility is basic with two of everything but ample for preparing breakfasts or picnics for the beach, you’re not going to do any Cordon Blue dishes, after all your on holiday, but there are a vast array of eating places within walking distance and many more a short traveling distances away, all ranges and prices, we ate in a different one each night and would not say any was better than the rest they were all good (Elena does snacks and a dish of the day but we like trying different places) Drinks at the well stocked bar are reasonably priced compared to other cafes and bars. Lourdas beach is shingly, with a sharpish drop but there are plenty of sandy beaches if you can travel, such as Kalminia. I am sure we will return, as it’s a little gem in an oasis of calm.

Room Tip: Ask for an upper room to get the views

Saoulas Studios in Lourdata, Kefalonia provides good clean accommodation with a beautifully clear pool. The owner Elena, and her terrific team, especially the vivacious Victoria, give a wonderful friendly service, ensuring their guests are happy and well cared for during their stay. The rooms are airy and clean with balconys on the upper floors and basic facilities for cooking. We slept soundly in basic, but comfortable beds. The tavernas in the area offer excellent food at reasonable prices, so staying in to cook is not necessary, although the market next door offers fresh produce should you wish to. Elena will happily cook meals at your request. We had a particularly good barbeque one evening. Elena offers light hearted entertainment (karaoke/quiz nights) - not a loud music 'club' atmosphere. The beaches are a walk away, although beware, access to them is steep and downhill - but well worth the effort. When we stayed - end of May 2011, the beaches were almost deserted. Hiring a car is a good idea for access to the rest of the island and Kefalonia is a sight for the desire to see the unspoiled Greece. If you are looking for a quiet hideaway, look no further than these lovely studios. Thank you Elena and Victoria, we had a terrific time!

Room Tip: Arrive early. First come first served.
