We stayed at Stamatia Studios for 7 nights and it was fantastic. The accommodation is basic but it has everything you need. The rooms are cleaned, beds made and pots washed for you daily.
The pool area is well maintained and the whole place is immaculate. There's a bar on site which is open until late if you fancy a quiet drink when you arrive back.
I wouldn't advise staying here if you don't have a car as there's no places to eat close by. We used it as a base and drove to a different restaurant and beach every day.
I would highly recommend staying here if you're after somewhere relaxed and friendly to stay.
As the title says...don't expect luxury and a buzzing place.
Stamatia has all you need if you are here to discover the island of Kefalonia.
Well positioned (8 minutes from Argostoli), clean and peaceful swimming pool, simple rooms with a big spacious terrace.
Kitchen could certainly be more equipped but if you ask kindly they will give you everything...better knives, pans, bla bla bla!!!
They don't really speak English but they are friendly, welcommee and they have a genuine smile!
With the outdoor pool, rooms are quite big, with the balcony and kitchen area, with the elemental facilities. The owner, Madame Stamaria unfortunately doesn't speak English, so if you coming not at regular check in time it's better to call and inform about in advance. She stays downstairs, for case if no one opened you reception door as it was in my case. Room was fixing up daily. Without breakfast. No markets or restaurants in that area. All is located in the centre. With the transport situation is very complicated, the only way to reach it by public is a bus from a bus station in Fiskardo port that's on the north of the island, that goes to Argostoli and makes stop in front of the entrance, for 6-7 € per person. If you have car, then it's much easier to find. Quite convenient place to stay, just 20 mins far from the centre by car.
Stayed here for 2 nights. Accommodation basic but satisfactory, very remote and no atmosphere. Hardly any guests or staff. Didn't feel any friendliness or experience any welcome as per reviews. Pool bar had limited opening hours even in peak season. Breakfast consisted of bread and biscuits for €3.50?! Further from argostoli than we thought which was reason we chose to stay here. Wouldn't stay here again tbh.
Yes still here after one week am now part of the family another week to go.
The pool is very nice indeed and the garden is very pretty. The whole pool area is spotless.
The accommodation is 100%and every day it is cleaned maid service 100%
If it isnt in the room the family try and supply it.
The location is perfect for any age group
But mobility I'd say is very important as the location is very rural. Short drive to sami a harbour village
In a brilliant location then 2 caves near by to visit 120 m descent in drgaerta but have a swim afterwards.
Poras and scala quite a bit further on but short cut back over the hairpin bends across the mountains.
Was little disappointed with fiscado
But on way back missed a turn off
We found a beautiful place called paradise assos so pretty village.
Visit laurdas another winner I rate this beach better than myrtle but the back drop of the turquoise sea is unforgettable
The journey never ends in the island of smiles.
We booked car hire with crb it appeared after chatting with other hire companies
The limited liability is fixed to 390 euros
At that time it was the best I could get.
I have to tell you argostoli to drive through is a nightmare but once out in the country side it's not so bad watch out for the tight bends keep in second on the declines 1in10 is easy ones with a 90 bend chucked in then straight into another one
Get the kids singing we will be coming round the mountain.
Food shopping lidl just out side argostole
On scala Road
My supermarket argostole nice one
Butchers near to port and fresh fish shop next door.the fruit stalls infront of these
Are good value to.
So all you have to do if you live in East Midlands is fly from ema. 3 hours later
Stamitia apartments here you come
The family will be there waiting for you
