We stayed in Avlaki 3 years ago - loved it.  It's very quiet, but that's how I like it. We stayed at Bella Vista and had the pool to ourselves most of the time. 2 tavernas, both very good. We alternated eating there and driving to Ag Stef for dinner - wonderful!
There is a random donkey who wanders about along the road, and just appears silently at your shoulder when you don't expect him! No shops. Horse riding place is lovely and Dimitri is great. Even if you don't ride, go along for a visit and say hello to the horses under the olive trees. 
 
Go to the horseriding centre end of the beach, sit down on the sand and enjoy the beautiful sunset.
 
Simple pleasures - you'll have a lovely time.

Hi Oddsoc, Villa Sparta is more Coyevinas which is closer to Kassiopi, its down a little lane opposite the boat yard on the way to Avlaki, about 5-10 minutes walk away, we have stayed in Levanda which is in the same lane, beautiful quiet area a lovely beach at the end of the lane, although stoney has superb views and you get a nice breeze in the afternoon. Its close enough to walk in to the village but far enough away to give you the best of both worlds, we usually always stay in this area its our favourite.
PS - The donkey is so sweet, he does suddenly appear out of no where bless him/her!
 
I am sure you will have a great time.

We`ve seen or rather heard the donkey for past couple years but no sign of it first two weeks June this year. The area is wonderful in and around Avlaki and we have our fingers crossed that villa we have stayed in past three years will be available next year, hoping to book for three weeks

Frilly, we came home on the 4th June so I think we just overlapped you and we saw him twice, once he was in the fenced off woodland next to the first taverna leaning right down over the fence having a good old munch and the next time just wandering up the road quite alone, we were in the car but there was this couple standing there at a loss as to what to do next!

Weve also booked, were staying at the Frosini Gardens this time and were taking my mum and dad so they can see what we keep banging on about all the the time on how fantastic Kassiopi is.

I hear the Frosini Gardens has had a makeover and new people are running it.
Anyone been this year yet? We are considering it for late September/early October.

We did visit Frosini Gardens and met George the manager who showed us round the rooms. They are lovely as is the reception area, bar and pool. They have done a really good job and George is so helpfull and friendly, they also gave us the use of there pool while we were in Kassiopi even though we were staying elsewhere.

Thankyou both for the information about Frosini Gardens - it is sounding good.
I remember visiting the bar area a couple of years ago and it was looking rather tired. Good that someone has the faith to invest in these hard times too.Clap

It sounds just what we want, just 70 days to go whoopee! Thanks Susie for putting my mind at rest, cant wait to pack, just need hubby to do the ironing first, honest he wont let me near the iron. The perks of having an x soldier are wonderful.

Hi Oddsoc,
We are there the week after and touch wood it is normally still hot when we go. Could you please send your hubby to mine to do the ironing, mine does not know what an iron is.
How long are you there for?

Hi Kmiddlemiss we are there for 2 weeks hooray, definately need our holiday, watching a man ironing is really tiring! (as well as extremly rare so I am told).
Where are you staying in September? Do you  go to the same place?

Hi Oddsoc,
We dont stay in the same apartments every time but we are at the Andreas pool this time and its the second time we have been there. We go where the best deals are and we always stop in the village.
Hope you have a lovely time in Avalaki never stopped there but have been down to the beach quite a few times as it is a lovely beach.
We are lucky we have a good excuse to go every year as my brother in law lives in Kassiopi so we have to go and see him and my sister in law. We had our honeymoon in Kassiopi so it is a very special place for us.

Hi Angela
You go the day we come home, going the 7th for 2 weeks so Rob will be able to spend his birthday with his family for a change. I might still be there when you get there though cause I have told work if I dont get my holidays I will put my notice in. Lost one set of apartments (we were going to book the Lofos originally) because work has held onto next years holidays so I wasnt going to lose this holiday so booked it without any holidays booked in at work.
