    • 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!
      Emma

    • 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!

      How to start planning??

      by pritj Online Now Feb 17, 2015 at 3:53 PM

      I m planning to visit Greece this year (August), including Athens and main islands (Mikonos, Santorini) plus Skopelos.
      13 days are enough? Is it easy to get from Athens to Skopelo? If so, is it too expensive? I d like to save money as much as possible..

      Skopelos/Alonissos

      by Jannice48 Online Now Nov 24, 2007 at 4:57 AM

      Now booked up for 2 weeks in early July to Skopelos and looking at the possibility of a night on Alonissos. We will be hiring a jeep for a few days to reach those small rocky coves and a boat for a day to reach those with no road access. Before I start contacting companies though, does anyone have any preferences as to hire companies for both the jeep and the boat?
      Also I see there are a few boat trips from Skopelos for the day......any in particular that anyone would recommend?
      I'd be very interested in an around the island boat trip to help me decide what area I'd need to hire my own boat from as to which bays I need to see. The same applies to Alonissos and any trips to the deserted Islands in the marine park.
      When I hire a boat on Skopelos do they allow you to go across to Agh Georgios Isl and Mikro Isl and would combining these with the coastline around Cape Kiourto and southwards then back along to Skopelos town be a possible day trip or would it be a little too much?

      Thanks for any help. Greatly appreciated
