No running water for most of the time

  • 1 of 5

We stayed in this apartment from 1st - 15th August 2017. The apartment is a good size, generally well equipped and handy for the square in the old town.

Unfortunately however, there was one big problem that overshadowed the whole of our holiday – for 11 of the 14 days, the water went off for extended periods. On these days, the water tended to go off around lunchtime, only coming back on again overnight. This was a complete nightmare as when you return from the beach, the first thing you want to do is have a shower. We ended up having to fill around 20 bottles of water when it was on so that we would have some water to pour over our heads to have a “shower” before going out. In addition, it also posed a health issue in that we could not flush the toilets and was really difficult to wash your hands – to be honest, it was like living in a 3rd world country....

During our stay we flagged the problems to the owner, but whilst some apologies were given, it is not sufficient to blame the local infrastructure for not being able to cope with the amount of tourists, but still be happy to take large rental fees whilst we had to live without running water. Having spoken to some locals, this is not a new problem (although it seems to have been worse this year). Also, from the evidence that we saw, these apartments are worse hit than most other places in Pefkohori.

Whilst the water was the biggest issue by far, there were a few smaller niggles:

The swimming pool was functional most of the time, however it is not great – tiles were cracked, had paint coming off, were coming off the walls and the installation was poorly finished.

The broadband connection in the apartment had been disconnected so we were given a 3G mobile dongle with 5GB of data instead. Unfortunately, the connection via this 3G link was very unstable and so our kids ended up buying extra data on their own phones in order to use the internet.

Finally, the location shown on the website map is a bit misleading – it looks like the apartment is just off the main road, (i.e. only a couple of minutes from the beach). It is actually further back in the village (800m from the beach as stated in the details). Whilst this was disappointing initially, it actually meant we were close to the Old Square which was a bonus as it had really nice atmosphere in the evening and in particular we enjoyed having a drink at Paul’s Place. The waiters there were fantastic – very welcoming and friendly.

APARTMENT

Family holiday with two teenagers, first time in Greece as a family. The apartment was ideal being two apartments originally, sympathetically combined into one which was perfect, giving the kids a bedroom each and their own shared bathroom and my wife and I our own bedroom and bathroom and lounge. This allowed everyone to have enough of their own space which all appreciated. The apartment has every appliance and accessory you could want including dishwasher and washing machine. The balcony frames the whole apartment and is furnished with sofas and a table and chairs. The sun hits one side of the balcony in morning so you can enjoy breakfast in the sun if you don't want to eat at the kitchen table or on the outside sofas. On the complex is a clean and well maintained pool, about 15 metres long and deep enough so you can get a decent swim in for exercise. The apartment is 1.5 hours from Thessaloniki airport and we paid 170 euros for the return taxi transfer. From the apartment, its about 5 minutes to the "Old Square" where there is a small but well stocked supermarket, 3 bar/restaurants - 2 traditional Greek and 1 tasteful English bar. The Old square also has a few shops and its a pleasant place to get a drink and food. A short 8/10 minute walk to the beach, main town and bigger supermarkets.

BEACH, TOWN & SEA

The sea is stunning - aqua blue, very clean, clear and warm. You can find your own bit of beach or use the sun loungers of the bars and restaurants on the main front if you buy a drink. A sun umbrella costs about 10 Euros and you definitely need one - I think the apartment had a couple for use which we found later - so its worth having a look in the cupboards and outside storage first before buying beach kit. We spent a few afternoons at one end of the beach up past the water sports area. Its a bit more of a stroll, about 15 mins, but worth it. Here, the sand stretches out quite far into the sea, accentuating the aqua blue colour, also a breeze comes across which is pleasant and gives the water a few waves to play in.

FOOD & DRINK

There are a large number of bars and restaurants in the town and on the front. At night the front is busy with people out walking. It felt safe, a real mix of young people and familys. I think the main night clubs are just outside town and clustered together. We ate out a fair amount and the Greeks know how to cook fish so would recommend the local fish dishes and salads.There is usual food for the kids

Great

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is very nice, equipped with everything necessary and is not far from the beach (a 5 minutes walk). The terrace of the apartment is perfect for relaxing on the couch out in the night!!!

We had a very nice relaxing week! Thanks!

Remanded for family with kids because they have a lot of toys and baby stuff :)

Hübsche Wohnung mit großem Balkon

  • 4 of 5

Wir waren mit fünf Erwachsenen in der Wohnung und haben dort eine schöne Zeit verbracht. Da wir die englische Anfahrtsbeschreibung nicht komplett verstanden haben, haben wir die Hausverwalterin angerufen, die uns sofort aufgesucht und zur Wohnung gebracht hat, sehr nette hilfreiche und unkomplizierte Person. Die Wohnung ist sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtet, sehr sauber und mit guten Sicherheitstüren ausgestattet. Der Balkon geht über Eck, ist riesig und hat eine große gemütliche und eine weitere kleinere Sitzmöglichkeit. Bei schlechtem Wetter könnte man gemütlich in dem schönen Wohnzimmer mit Kamin sitzen. Die Ausstattung ist ausreichend, leider war keine Kaffeemaschine vorhanden und wir bekamen nirgends einen Plastikfilter zu kaufen, so dass wir noch nicht mal per Hand Kaffee aufbrühen konnten. Ein kleiner Handfeger fehlte beim Reinigungsinventar, aber sonst haben wir nichts vermisst. Spiele und Strandzubehör wie auch zwei Sonnenschirme sind in den Schränken drinnen bzw. in den Möbeln auf dem Balkon. Man sollte vorher mal hineingucken, da wir dann schon einen Schirm gekauft hatten. In einem Bad liegen auch 4 zurückgebliebene dünnere Strandtücher mit Kindermotiven. Es ist überall genug Platz in den Schränken, man kann vieles verstauen. Der Pool wurde abends gesäubert, hat allerdings schon einige Verschleißspuren, man kann jedoch die Pools der umliegenden Hotels nutzen, wenn man sich dort ein Getränk bestellt. Die Lage ist gut und ruhig, es ist eine Straße mit vielen Ferienwohnungen, Parkplätze bekommt man vor dem Haus. Der Weg zum 'Old Square', ein sehr netter Platz mit einigen netten Lokalen und Geschäften ist in 5 Minuten zu erreichen, den Strand mit seiner schönen Promenade und weiteren vielen Lokalen und Geschäften erreicht man in ca. 10 Minuten. Der Strand war aufgrund der Reisezeit sehr voll und ist an einigen Stellen steinig, wo unsere Tochter auch leider durch einen Seeigel leicht verletzt wurde. Man sollte an diesen Stellen Badeschuhe tragen oder ein paar Meter weiter gehen, es gibt auch Abschnitte, wo man problemlos ohne Schuhe ins Meer gehen kann. Ansonsten kann man die Gegend mit dem Auto gut erkunden. Der Ort ist sehr belebt, hat aber auch nette ruhige Straßen. Uns hat es dort sehr gut gefallen. Vielen Dank an die Vermieter und Hausverwalterin!
