never stayed at Eleni . they are at the top end of Lourdas in Vhalata. easy to walk to main tavernas in the villageand 3 supermarkets. Beach a long walk down a hill. but tavernas and bars down by beach. been a bus service up and down the village this year. We stay in Lourdas and we love it . we always have a car for the duration as we like to get out and about. You will have fantastic views over the sea towards Zante and the mmountains behind you.

Hi Paul and welcome,

Have a look at this link

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

You can play around with the "walk through".

I would endorse nannasuej's comments about how important a car would be, both for getting back up from the beach and getting around the island

Happy planning

Bob

I echo what has been said by nannasuej. Eleni is perhaps 2 - 2½ Km from the beach and about 200 metres above sea level. Of course that means that the views should be good!

It is unfair of the holiday companies that they advertise all these places as being in Lourdas. Whilst it is true, it would be better if they gave the villages of the accommodation, Lourdata, Vlacchata, Trapezaki, etc., so that their customers can make more informed decisions.

It is interesting that when I submitted this message, TA flagged it as mentioning two resorts, Lourdata & Trapezaki. Vlacchata not even mentioned although it has more accommodation than either!

These studios are very nice, they are situated at the top end of lourdas, near are 3 mini markets and 5 tavernas and 2 bars. Top end flat and easy walking, further down the road you have middle of Lourdas there is a couple of tavernas and 2 bars and mini market, at the bottom is beach, 2 bars and tavernas. Lourdas is a downhill resort, very popular with repeat guests and couples. Not all propertys have air con but you can hire a fan from Petros mini market right near Eleni studies. This is a relaxing resort. Very little public transport, but there is Taxis. You are about 20 mins from capital Argostoli, great to visit in morning or in evening. Enjoy Lourdas.
