More than two star studios
5 / 5 stars Rate:

Category: Kefalonia Hotels > Rosa


These are not two star studios. As self-catering accommodation goes on the Greek Isles, the apartments at Rosas studios are a minimum of four stars, at least. We are just back (23 July, 2013) from a two week stay at these wonderful apartments and I would have no hesitation in recommending Rosas, to anyone looking for self-catering accommodation on Cephalonia. I have travelled the Greek Isles for twenty five years and this is the best self-catering I have come across.

The facilities are perfect, everything you need is at hand. The apartments are spacious, modern and clean. The ground floor apartments all have terraces, while the upper floors have large balconies that overlook the beach and across the sea. After a hectic day of being dragged round the shops in nearby Argostoli, or experiencing another masterpiece of Greek cooking at the Klamatis tavern, just along the beach from Rosas, the balcony was true sanctuary. Cool drink in hand listening to the waves and crickets while watching the ferry boats, as the make their way across to Zante, heaven on earth, pure bliss.

I have to make a special mention to Rosa, Spiro and family. We all worry about whether the holiday we have just booked is going to live up to expectations. Without a doubt, if our experience is anything to go by, it will. The family obviously care as much as you do about your holiday. They really do go that extra mile to make sure you have everything you need.

So why not five star? Nothing to do with the apartments, all to do with not checking the area out thoroughly enough before going. My wife and I, are now getting on in years and we found there were too many slopes and hills. You will definitely need transport if you are not reasonable fit or able bodied. Lourdata, itself is stunning but if you are looking for a bouncing, heaving nightlife etc., best go to a more lively resort. If however you are looking for a peaceful relaxing break, you won't find better. The resort has enough good tavernas and drinking holes to keep you interested but the villages are all situated on slopes, so remember transport is a must if you are as old and creaky as me.

Info:
Best meals.
Lamb and lemon at the Blue Sea. Cost, two mains, no starters, bread. Four drinks, beers x 2 brandy and coke x 2 Total 37 Euros.
Lamb la Mer and beef in red wine just at the la Mer. No starters, half carafe of wine 1 beer, 1 brandy and coke. Total 27, Euros
Mixed meat in ceramic pot* plus other main, at the Klamatis, can't remember what my wife had. No bread one side, carafe of wine 1 beer 1 brandy total 37Euros.
They were a lot of other meals but these were the ones that stood out.
*I love authentic Greek cooking. If you go here and do not have the meat in ceramic pot, you are going to miss something amazing. All the food from the Klamatis was amazing, Greek cooking the way it used to be before the rush.
Large beer 3- 4 Euros
Spirit 4-5 Euros
Pack of cigarettes 40 Euros for two hundred
Cost of essentials, bread, sugar coffee etc. approx. ten percent dearer than UK.

An unforgettable island

Pine-covered hills, crystal waters sparkling in the sunshine, pastel-colored buildings festooned with flowers, Kefalonia is an island of outstanding natural beauty.
Here, you'll find friendly people, good food and a choice of small, unspoiled harbor towns, such as Fiskardo, Assos and Agia Efimia.
I highly recommend Kefalonia, it left an indelible impression on me, so much so that I chose it as the location for my novel, The Magic In The Receiver. www.pauldillon.net

If you plan to visit Kefalonia, you might be interested to know that it combines relaxation and crazy nightlife. My friends had booked a room in a beautiful beach, Lourdas, close to the town and the airport. It was the ideal choice for us, calm and unspoilt. Along the beach, there were nice taverns although in early July tourists were few.

The beaches are surely the attractions of Kefalonia, like Myrtos and AntiSami, which are the island's most stunning areas. In the third position, I put Skala and then Lourdas. Skala is a lovely place fairly calm and fairly tourist. We mostly enjoyed the food in Kefalonia, which was great in all the taverns we visited and especially in Xi, where we had our best meal.

We didn't really look for clubs except from some little bars in Lassi with modern music and relaxing atmosphere. The next time which I hope will be soon, I plan to stay in the famous Fiscardo. Also the island is ideal for adventurous holidays, we even tried some hiking and I loved it.

Stayed here in June 2011 and we really enjoyed our holiday. If you want peace and quiet, very near to beaches and tavernas then this is the place for you. The studios and appartments are lovely with plenty of room ,clean and set in lovely well kept gardens and pool with barbeque area.Dimitra and her daughters are very helpfull and make sure your stay is really comfortable and enjoyable.Our favourite tavernas were Litheros, Klematis and Adinos Palace but all of them are good value. A car is beneficial to see the island but if you just want to relax in Lourdas you are sure to enjoy your holiday.
Plan to be back 2012 and cant wait!.
Love ,
Maggie and Tam

We had a wonderful time at Rosas Beach Studios this summer. Rosa and her husband Spiros are very helpful, efficient and friendly. The view from the balcony is breathtaking and the sandy beaches just below the studios are a dream. There is a small local foodstore and you have a choice of 5-6 good greek restaurants along the beach. We very much enjoyed our quiet holidays by the beach - the capitol Argostoli is only 30 (car)minutes away.

Hi Angelo

Just wanted to say a huge Thank You for a wonderful stay last week.

We enjoyed every minute of the holiday ( well, maybe not the rain. Then again we both love a good thunderstorm. ) The room was beautiful and very comfortable and nice and close to the harbour.

We had visits from two couples while you were in Athens so could have got you two more lots of guests. lol.

Once more a big thank you

Regards

Roy and Sue Newman

We stayed in the La Cite in July 2010 - what an amazing place! They may not have many stars - but what they lack in the * rating they more than make up in cleanliness and customer service. We have just rebooked for 2012... and to be honest, I envisage us returning year on year. Superb!
