We stayed at Buena Vista Studios from July 22nd-August 5th 2012. Luckily we got room 1 which is on the top floor and we had wonderful views of the sea. The studios have comfortable beds, a kettle, toaster, fridge and 2 hobs. Our balcony was large with lovely furniture and we chose to spend some days lazing there rather than going to the beach. Location wise you are near lots of fabulous tavernas which serve great food and there are 3 supermarkets within a minutes walk. If we return to Lourdas we would definitely hire a car as the trek up the mountain from nearby Kanali beach is hard in the heat. I would definitely recommended Buena Vista Studios as a lovely quiet place to stay and if you want to use a pool you can take a short walk along to the Maria Anna Apartments.
