    • Early summer holiday.

      Greece Jan 11, 2017 at 3:05 AM

      Sorry to hear this site is shutting down.

      I had an incredible summer honeymoon in Switzerland thanks entirely to commenters on this forum. I'm really grateful.

      This question is very broad but I thought I might get lucky again!

      Hoping for a may/June family holiday this year.
      Traveling with a three year old and a one year old.
      Beach, hotel, pools, nature, good food, an old town nearby.
      We really want it to be child friendly with food and drink readily available but not too big a complex.
      We'd love to visit a Greek island, also considering Italy and France, I'll post over there too.

      Many thanks if you have any thoughts!

    • Kefalonia or not?

      Greece Jan 1, 2017 at 4:40 AM

      Dear VT Fine Folk:

      Anyone here spent much time on the island of Kafalonia (aka: "Cephalonia") in the Ionian Islands (& Sea).
      Any advice?
      For, say, a one or two week stay in the spring -- is Lixouri or Argostoli best? Looks like Argostoli has a loud,
      busy airport near downtown? Or Not?

      Perhaps Zakythos (aka: "Zante") just to the south of Kefalonia is better?

      Thanks ahead of time for all & any tips!

      Hotel in Kerkyra Town, August

      by Pau365 Online Now Apr 14, 2008 at 10:03 AM

      I think my question's quite similar to the last one posted so maybe we can compare notes.
      I'll be staying for one night in Corfu in August, on my way back from Albania. Does anyone know of any hotels that are nice and good value in the centre or (particularly) around the port area?
      The Konstantinoupolis is exactly the kind of place I'd like to stay but 102 euros for a single room sounds a bit expensive....
      Does anyone know of any others, or how to halve the price of the Konstantinoupolis?

      Corfu or Santorini?

      by Nitina Online Now Aug 3, 2007 at 1:21 PM


      Still a bit undecisive about whether to go to Corfu or Santorini. we will be going around 20th August. I will be going with my parents ( I am over 18) and both my parents are fun people and young hearted.

      I was told both islands are nice, corfu being very green and having really nice beaches but no idea about nightlife? and santorini having the most amazing views and compact centre

      Where would u suggest for a nice island experience?
      we like swimming, nice cafes, restaurants, lively atmosphere popular with young greeks and international people etc..

      has anyone been to these two islands and can recommend which one is better?

      Hiring a car

      by zizkov Online Now Apr 20, 2006 at 6:02 PM

      Two questions, as I am intending to hire a car when I visit next month (to Arillas).

      How alarming are the roads? Lots of steep climbs/descents? Hairpin bends? Sheer drops? How is the maintenance? I was in Kefalonia last year (my friend drove) and some of the roads were quite, er, stimulating. Mostly in good or very good condition, though.

      How much is rental? Last year in Kefalonia an Atoz (tiny car) was E100 insured for 3 days (start of July). And does anyone have any recommendations for hire companies?

      Thanks in advance for your help.
