9 muses question & hire cars

Does anyone know if the self catering studios at the 9 muses have kettles? (Im assuming theres no microwave)

Also can anyone tell me if there are local car hire companies that would provide a car seat suitable for a 11 month old

We stayed at nine Muses a couple of years ago on B&B basis and i'm pretty sure that we had a kettle in the room so if you're self catering you should definately have one. I can't imagine that there will be a microwave in the room but i'm sure if you need baby food etc warming they would be more than happy to warm it at the bar for you (during opening hours) if you asked them .............. the staff were all pretty helpful when we were there.

Re. car hire Greekstones and CBR both get pretty good reviews and I understand from previous posts on various websites that they can provide baby/child seats. They both have websites, if ou just google them i'm sure they'll come up.

Hope this helps ............. have a wonderful holiday; i'm sure you will!!

We usually pre-book our hire cars before we travel, have got some very good deals using Carhire3000, they use various rental companies within the resorts, last year it was CBR, this year it appears we have a car c/o Avis. Here's the link, it will give you an idea of prices http://www.carhire3000.com/

PEFANIS Travel & Rent A Car :


It is located in central Skala just off the high street.

15 minutes from your hotel on foot.

You can hire a car at the following locations around Kefalonia:

LASSI - 26710 25471/25472

ARGOSTOLI - 26710 22338

LOURDAS - 26710 31405

SKALA - 26710 83276

AIRPORT - 26710 41120

Contact the Skala Office via the web or telephone before leaving the UK.


Pefanis will drop the car off at the airport or your hotel on the first day of hire and collect it on the last.

Why hire a car from Pefanis in Skala?

(1) Pefanis has comprehensive insurance on its cars and not 3rd party.

Make sure you check this information before hiring.

Don't hire a vehicle with 3rd party insurance- its just not worth it.

Kefalonia's roads have lots of bends, pot holes and hills.

Cheap hire cars sometimes only have 3rd party insurance.

If you are unlucky enough to have a serious accident in Kefalonia ,

you want your car to be comprehensively insured to cover the repair bill.

(2) The man who runs Pefanis Car Hire in Skala is a gentlemen.

In 2007 Skala had a heatwave during the Kefalonian fires (38-48C).

I ended up with serious sunburn on my legs after spending too long in a swimming pool (waterproof suntan lotion washed off) .

Layers of skin fell off my legs and ankles.

My bandaged legs were sweating. Salt was entering my wounds.

Walking on crutches was hell- I was getting referred pain in my swollen ankles.

I went into Pefanis Skala Office with a friend to hire a car.

I had advanced heat stroke and my condition started to deteriorate.

I sat there quietly, politely taking the pain, as we waited to be dealt with.

The manager took one look at me and could see how ill I was.

He asked if i needed any help.

He instructed his son to take me back to my hotel in Porto Skala (4km)

and made sure I was given an ice cool bottle of water to help rehydrate me.

I had advancing heat stroke and wasn't making the right decisions.

Without his kindness I would have become seriously ill.

Pefanis Car Hire in Skala will treat you fairly.

TKPUNK - just read your review. Was your suite on the ground floor? Do you know if there are any suites on the 1st floor?
