We chose this accommodation simply because it worked out at a good price and it was one of the few one bedroomed apartments available on Lesvos with an English holiday company.
There are two buildings block booked by First Choice, containing studios and apartments, a little distance apart and a more modern hotel behind the swimming pool, which is let independantly. We were in the Eriphilly, the second building, where there were three apartments on both the first and second floor and on the ground floor, which was a little cellar-like, were studios. These had no windows and only an ordinary door with a tiny window in but they did have a nice patio area.Some people weren't too keen but others loved them.
We had two balconies, a very basic kitchen with a lack of utensils and crockery etc but we did have a kettle. In this area was a bed settee for Philip which was none too comfortable and the only window with fly screens on. The two french windows did not.
The bathroom had a narrow bath/shower with curtain and there was always hot water in both here and the kitchen.
The one strange thing we found was that the electricity only worked when your key fob was fitted into a slot, which meant you couldn't leave things charging while you were out. The fridge obviously worked on a seperate system.
There was air-con, at an additional cost, but we didn't need it in May.
In the wardrobe we found a fixed safe, which didn't work on the combination lock but the key for it was on the key ring for the room. A nice little extra (not that we ever worry over the safety of our money and passports.)
Lovely swimming pool area with childrens pool. Be aware the pool bottom is slippery so watch your step getting in. Plenty of sunbeds and a bar where food and drinks can be purchased. Excellent for teenagers as they can do their own thing, here.
Lovely castle views, if you're lucky and surrounded by pretty gardens. It was interesting to watch the different plants flower as the fortnight progressed.
Nick spent many an uncomfortable hour in a very rustic pergola in the garden so he could stay in the shade, as our balcony was very hot in the afternoons and early evening.
DAILY maid service, including clean linen and towels although only shower towels are provided. The whole place was spotlessly clean.
Some friendly cats about, one of which was clever enough to join us on our balcony by scaling the vine and leaping onto our balcony from it. She soon made herself at home!
A little gem. Very basic rooms with shared bathrooms but there was a very well equipped kitchen. The balcony was over the taverna, looking over the harbour.
I think there were only three rooms here.
We met an interesting Danish lad here who was cycling his way round the island. We later met up with him in Kalloni.
Just a lovely location and dirt cheap.
This was good accommodation for the price we paid. A seperate bedroom, kitchen and bathroom and a verandah complete with soft chairs!! The verandah had a large awning.
I suppose it was because we had come back to Kalloni to return the hire car after exploring the island that we felt a little fed up and hemmed in. The weather didn't help either, as it rained on and off. We felt like we were stranded without the car and probably didn't appreciate this accommodation as much as we should. We felt like the owner was always around and keeping an eye on us. We were worried in case Michael made too much noise or accidently broke anything.
A nice, friendly welcome where we were shown three different rooms before opting for a first floor room with a balcony. There were only two beds in it so Maria put a third one in for us. Nothing was too much trouble.
Below our room was a pretty courtyard with an outdoor kitchen and some seats. This was a safe haven for Michael to play in while we sat on our balcony watching. Maria lived on the ground floor and kept appearing with a plateful of sweets, offering them to Michael. He soon got the idea that Maria was the sweetie supplier!!!
It's a very romantic hotel because of its positioning. It is by the sea with a very nice view of the sea and the little port.
Although the rates are a little high the services are very poor ( for example breakfast).
There is no TV in the rooms ( at least the one we stayed, with sea view) and there is no internet connectivity whatsoever.
Nevertheless there is a swimming pool, although there is a beautiful beach just in front of the hotel.
