Last year we paid £1400, 2 adults 1 child at the Elena, last week of August. This year going independently £360 flights to Corfu £200 accomodation for 8 nights, add ferry and transfers (hire car maybe) and should have done it all for £800ish May BH week.

Does it matter?

You have paid for the holiday of your choice, just start saving to pay for it, and enjoy the thought of some sun in July!!

Someone will always tell you they booked a holiday for £28 56, but in reality, these days, bargains don't really exist. Especially during the peak season, if you leave booking to the last minute you will just be left with the dregs to pick from and your £28 56, may seem like a waste of money!!

In relation to what we paid last year for the Elena for a week in the school hols that doesn't seem too bad - enjoy your time in Parga. Via Corfu is cheaper if you can get the flights when they first come out (as we did) but obviously this doesnt suit everyone, we have done it this way twice before and are doing so again this May but when we stayed at Elena in Aug 12 we flew direct to Preveza with TC.

2 weeks beg sept for £1230, actually cheaper than last year, just for 2 adults though, staying on Valtos side which we love. We all just love it, would still find somewhere whatever the price.

DebsLpool, I haven't booked a holiday for £28.56 recently but did manage to get four days HB in Palma Nova, Majorca for £19 (yes, £19!) in January 1970 and even ended up, with several others, on BBC's "Holiday 70" programme with Cliff Michelmore. The hotel couldn't do enough with a film crew hovering in the background and we also got a free 'Spanish Night' with as much booze as we could manage.

For two winter periods the tour operators were desperate to fill beds which they were committed to - the price in 1971 shot up to £25 B&B so we gave it a miss (seriously, you couldn't get a look in for '71).

Those were the days Connysir, you never hear anything about Palma Nova anymore, it used to be the place to go to. My schoolfriend went there in 1972, I was so jealous, it sounded so exotic, which was why my parents wouldn't consider it, they didn't trust Johnny foreigner!!

duncanboing - we loved the Elena, the place was spotless, pool area very nice too, plenty of sunbeds and only noticed a couple of towels laid out at 7am! there is a really nice bar area also. We travelled with Thomas Cook so our accomodation was at the very top, up lots of stairs but the views were fantastic, we also had a full bath and shower which is unusual for Greece. It's a pleasant walk into town on the flat. Is this your first visit to Parga?
