To date the Restia suites is the best place I have stopped at in Greece it is located in Almiros-Acharavi in Corfu

A five star hotel but felt much more , have never felt so relaxed as the two weeks I stopped there , all the staff are so helpful and cant do enough for you .

There are few suites that are placed side by side two at a time but are not overlooked and each have a small swimming pool so if you just want to chill on your own or with your partner without being disturbed by others you can do .

There are two restaurants , one situated by the main pool area the other above the kitchens , you do have to book for the one above kitchens so if you are there for a special occasion or just want to spoil yourself book a night in that restaurant with views out to see .

The beach is a very short walk away and Acharavi town is only a ten minutes pleasant walk away either by road or a little longer along the beach .

To view more please visit

Hotel Afitis in the small Town of Afitos Halkadiki below 

The Hotel Afitis a four star hotel , what can I say about this hotel ......Well we enjoyed this hotel so much we stopped here two years in a row , The hotel itself it situated just out of the small town of Afitos right on the beach front , it also has some studios just 600m from the hotel these are very pleasant and are a good size .

restaurant is situated next to the pool with views out to sea  

Food is to die for and is put out like a buffet so you can keep going up as many times as you like 

Afitos town is five minute walk up some steps behind the hotel and is well worth a walk round but is a very small town for more shops and places to eat Kallithea is a twenty minute walk along the back road and is a very pleasant walk even at night , there are loads of bars and taverna's there and does get lively at night so if thats not your thing then stay in Afitos for food .

Overall this hotel is a fantastic relaxing place to stay and i very much recommend

A Family run hotel that can guarantee you a very warm welcome , these studios in Thassos are were you will be made to feel like an individual rather than just a number .

Dolphin Hotel Antiparos

The dolphin hotel St Georgio Antiparos featuring its Aegean architectural style yet has all the modern facilities you could wish for . 

The hotel itself is located in the traditional village of St Georgio of Antiparos just under 7 miles from the town of Antiparos opposite the Despotiko island .

The hotel is 10m from the sea & only 80m from the beach

Main restaurant of Restia Suites 

 Villa Atlantis 

We stopped in the Villa Atlantis in 2008 , this was a last minute booking yet the hotel exceeded expectations with a very warm friendly welcome , large rooms with small basic kitchen if going self catering . beach just over the road and plenty of places to eat out at night within walking distance , you can also walk ten minutes down the beach and catch the sea taxi to Kamari, you can get all the way there by foot but its a fair hike over the mountain where the ancient city of Thira stands in ruins but if your feeling fit it is well worth a walk up to see, stopping of to see the tiny church half way . follow the road down the other side into Kamari browse the shops stop for sum lunch and catch the taxi back to Perissa 

Sea taxi from Kamari to Perissa  

Daphne holiday club , just tucked away from the main road and away from Hanioti main town yet still only a brisk five minuets walk to the beach .

When we stopped here we went self catering and the room had a great little kitchen , very basic but what more do you need .

Some fantasic taverna's within walking distance and if needed a supermarket about half a mile down the main road that sells almost everything you will need 

There is a nice sized swimming pool (photo left) that is situated on the roof with a lovely restaurant and pool side bar where on a friday night they hold a great Greek night consisting of Greek music and a bbq .

There is a tennis court and a gym on site , the gym is a bit limited but nice and cool and kept out of the way of the rest of the guests 

Over all a very pleasant small holiday resort with terrific views of woodland at the back of resort beaches close by, friendly staff .

very much recommended

 Porto Skala Hotel in Kefalonia 

Located just outside of Skala itself overlooking the Ionian sea , there is nothing negative I can say about this hotel , the location , the facilities & the staff are all perfect 

The hotel itself has a swimming pool , a fitness centre & even a small cinema room .

There are two small beaches just a small stroll across the road .

Although Porto Skala is a small hotel it offers an all inclusive package that you wont be disappointed in with breakfast & dinner being different choices every night and pool side snacks from the bar for lunch that even the biggest appetite will be happy with .

All in all if you are after a peaceful relaxing holiday in Kefalonia you really cant beat the hotel Porto Skala
