Hi,

These links should answer the question about beach access, tavernas and minimarket

directline-holidays.co.uk/maria-anna-hotel

http://www.justkefalonia.co.uk/lourdas.htm

For proper supermarkets there are three, including a Lidl, on the main road between Argostoli and Lourdas about 2km from Argostoli

Enjoy Kefalonia

There are 3 mini markets in Loudas, all not too far from your hotel. Petros which is down the road on the left hand side is much larger than a mini market & sells local fresh bread, local eggs & olives. Their prices are very reasonable, although a few cents more than the Argostoli supermarkets.

The beach is at the bottom of the dreaded hill & should take you about 20 minutes to walk down & at least 40 minutes to walk back up. Recommend you have some water with you for the return trip.

There are lots of tavernas in Lourdas but you will probably want to use the ones at the top of the hill. The Olive Lounge gets good reports although we have never been & Andromeda has a popular Greek evenings on Thursday & apparently booking is recommended.

We too are back in 5 weeks time - our 2nd trip this year!

Hope you enjoy your holiday.

You may also like to visit Bar 360 which is on the righthand side as you go down the hill to the beach.

It is owned by Brits & seems very popular.
