    • Help choosing a village?!

      Rhodes (Island) Feb 28, 2015 at 4:10 AM

      Hi All,

      My partner and I will be visiting Rhodes for just over 2 weeks towards the end of May and are struggling to find the best place to stay.

      We will be hiring a car and planning on exploring to find secluded more intimate beaches but love the history and hustle and bustle of the old town. We want to stay clear of the new town but since we will have a car to park are concerened about booking to stay in the old town.

      We were thinking about villages just outside of the old town so we can travel in in the afternoon/evenings. Does anyone have any suggestions of alternative ideas?

      We aren't big fans of built up resorts and ideally want to stay in a traditional but nice b&b??

      No amount of research seems to answer our questions :{

      Thanks in advanced
      Lauren :)

    • Best place to stay in Samos/recommended things to do/see?

      Greece Feb 14, 2015 at 3:39 AM

      So after much trawling the net and great suggestions from fellow travellers on here have managed to decide on Samos as our chosen summer holiday destination (it seems to have a good balance of all that we are looking for from our holiday...beautiful beaches/scenery, ruins/sights, day trips and most importantly real Greek charm).
      Before proceed with a booking wanted some advice on a good place to stay.
      We are a small family, not into resort style/18-30 holidays! We will not be driving so need advice on which part would be best to stay as a base (would like at least a beach/village with shops/taverns nearby) and can then obv take the bus/boat for daytrips etc and prob not too far from the airport (don't mind about 30/40mins away).
      Also could you recommend the sights/trips too! We are looking at 7-10days.
      Many thanks in adv :-)

    • Advice for best island for family holiday in Greece

      Greece Feb 13, 2015 at 6:54 AM

      Hello, we are looking to visit Greece towards the end of July. We last visited Greece 7years ago, went island hopping (Santorini, Naxos & Ios) my son now 9yrs, was only 2 at the time so doesn't have any recollection of the amazing time we had.

      We will visit towards the end of July for 7-10days.

      Our requirements, so that you have a better understanding of what we are looking for in a holiday ...

      • Needs to be a place that has an aiport (doesn't have to be international as can transfer from Athens). I don't really like the idea of ferries as think it becomes complicated trying to get flight times to coincide with ferry times, what if there are delays/bad weather etc.)
      • We definately want to be in a place where we feel like we are in Greece, eat Greek food, hear&seeGreek music /dancing and see Greek architecture ,ruins etc)
      • We DON'T want to be anywhere where it gets roudy ie 18-30s clubs. We want a good atmosphere but not 'Brits behaving badly sort'! (Yes we visited Ios but only for 2 night as we had friends who ran a hotel there and we managed to escape to a hidden beach, think it was called Manganari beach which was beautiful but wouldn't have chosen it otherwise, also was in the 18-30 bracket then).
      • We want a balance between (beach/swimming/exploring/history/nature) ie visiting beautiful turquoise crystal clear beaches, being able to explore narrow winding streets/rustic charm ofvillages, seeing olives being pressed, churches, taking day trips etc (I understand that we will not get it all but just done ideas
      • We are NOT interested in a 'plastic holiday' in the sun or 'kids clubs'
      • As for accomodation we would prefer to be in a smallish family run hotel where you are looked after, with at least B&B and a pool. Happy to eat out/ buy from local supermarket. Definately nowhere that is too big/resort style!

      I don't want to stay at the places we've been to already but wouldn't mind doing a day trip to them again(if suggested place was in Cyclades) for instance know my son would love to see the volcano in Santorini.

      • We don't want to drive so somewhere that has good transport is important.

      Any suggestions for a great well balanced family holiday in a proper Greek environment would be greatly appreciated :-)

      If you do have any suggestions please could you be specific as to the island and place as sometimes there are nicer/more suitable parts.

      I have looked at Paxos which seems lovely with old Greek charm but perhaps not enough to do / complicated with ferry? We have also looked at Paros but then have read quite a bit that it can be more for the party goers but has good transport.

      Thanks in advance! I look forward to hearing your suggestions :-)

      I have been unable to find a street map of Nidri and I go in four weeks time. I am not really moaning but I love my maps and when walking is restricted one needs to be able to see the distance to the ferries, bars, etc., when choosing a place to stay. I like to know before I go. Hotels saying 500 mtrs to beach doesn't really do it for me.

      I will start on main land, close to the island of Lefkada(Lefkas) visiting relatives. From there, I will be dropped off in Lefkada for 4 nights. From Lefkada, I plan to vist Zakynthos. I am having a hard time finding info on travel routes down to Zakynthos from Lefkas... Are there ferries from Lefkada? Even if there is no direct ferry route, I don't mind so long as it can be done somewhat easily.

      Or... do I have to leave Lefkas and bus to a port (via mainland) in order to make my way over to Zante? I will have no car, so any specific details will be greatly appreciated.
