Hi all,
We've settled on booking the Paleo Studios for 2 weeks end of June.
Much deliberation. lol.
Firstly have we made a good choice? 
And any info of whereabouts the studios sit in the resort? 
The info we have found seems a bit vague.
Is it close to anywhere good to eat. Shop. How far from best beaches???

Hi Dave,
We stayed in them five years ago and enjoyed them very much. They are very big inside so lots of space. Quite basic but very clean. Friends of ours stayed there last October and also enjoyed them.

They are across from the Cactus bar when you come into Paleo and about 1000 yards down from Spiros Taverna towards to port. There is a small supermarket 50 yards away and the big one with an autobank 2000 yards up the road.
There are lots of places to eat in Paleo so you will be OK.

Walked passed the Paleo Studios the other day and their pool was looking rather green lol. It will be drained and refilled in the next week or two.

Might bump into you in June.

Kind Regards and enjoy your holiday

Thanks. Lets hope they clean the pool then lol. Were arriving 23rd of June so plenty of time.
Is there a shopping area or are they just scattered around? We have looked on maps, seems to be quite spread out.

Hi Dave, no shopping area as such. The shops, tavernas, etc are spread out, but you will be OK where you are and Paleo is so lovely it is nice to have a walk.

ps. passed the Paleo Studios this afternoon and still green water lol.

Kind regards
Tom

I think someone means hundreds of yards, not thousands.

There are ways down to the sea around there, but the main beaches where the road ends at the car parks below the monastery are maybe a mile further down the road.

On the plus side, some of the better restaurants are up the other end of the resort where you'll be.

Hi Joefish,
These distances may be hundreds of yards to you, but remember, I am 5'6" not 7'4" (sorry if I am an inch or two out either way). Either way you are in great position. Just enjoy.

Kind regards
Tom


And I have stayed there and had a great time. You are still the tallest person I have ever met in my life.

Hi Stokiedave
I can't comment on your accommodation but you've had plenty of that already.
I was a bit weary of the layout of Paleo and if I'm honest I did miss the village atmosphere a little bit but you get used to it and you earn your dinner!! Then of course there are the views, another stunning one around every corner.
The resort is roughly 3km long with hotels, bars, shops, mini markets & taverna's stretched out all the way along.
The biggest beaches are indeed down at the bottom which gets pretty busy during the day, but there are quiet spots to be found. Check out the Paleo Bliss website, virtual tour and locations & pics of all the beaches.

You're right next to Spiros so enjoy it.  Don't forget to try the 'Spiros Special Saganaki' - it's a bit spicy.

Couldn't pick a favourite! I especially enjoyed Nausika & Spiros, I'd say The Belvedere has the best views, a lot do set price meals, on average I'd say we spent 30 to 35 euro for 2 courses, beers & wine, I didn't think it was particularly cheap to be honest but there are price differences to be found, we just looked at the menus throughout the day as we strolled up & down the road.
Petrino's do a great cold Alpha beer for 2.50 and you can get Corfu beer (from the brewery in Arillas) at The Apollon Hotel.

There are lots of good eating places in Paleo, as has already been mentioned, Spiro's, Nausica    and the Grill House , however, if you can, make the effort to get to Taverna Elizabeth in Doukades and Boulis in Lakones . Elizabeths may not be an obvious place for good food, but the food and family are wonderful. Boulis is slightly more expensive but if there is a particular traditional dish you want to try, call in a couple of days before and ask if they will prepare the dish for a certain time/day. And the views.....WOW! The bakery next door to Boulis is worth a visit for morning coffee, cake and the views.
All in all, excellent!

Ah yes we went to Boulis when we walked up to Lakones, it was my reward!!! Bakery was closed for the afternoon by the time we went down that way, had a brilliant 'Greek' salad squeezed into the corner of the balcony
We really enjoyed Limani down by the harbour too, they had a 10% off thing before 9pm I think.

Hi all again. Ive read a review on trip advisor and noticed it said there was no kettle in the room. Is this just a one off or are the no kettles in any of the studios?

Thanks dave

Stokiedave, I've not stayed there but I think I've read numerous times that there's no kettle.
