After our 3rd visit to Porta Del Mar, we have returned home relaxed yet refreshed.
We revisited as we knew we would find a warm welcome, an easy-going atmosphere & simple but quality accomodation.
It is perfect for those who shy away from large hotels; with 8 villas you can be as social as you which, joining others for the BBQ or at the bar, or you can keep to yourself.
Yes the beach is small, but it's a quiet place, & as the sea is shallow it's great for the kids. Ours (6 & 7) were happy pottering around the garden & beach, & loved to go out on the canoe or snorkelling, though it may be too low key for "high-maintainence" kids who need structure & non-stop activities.
The owners Tasos, Pavlina, Costas & Elena are very friendly, making a stay here like home-from-home.
However, the best thing here has to be the views; I wish I could be sat looking over the sea to Kefalonia with a drink in one hand & my book in another right now - bliss!
