Well guys, that's it all over for another year.

Back last night from two weeks at Villa Mangana, Kalami and can honestly say a good time was had by all.

Weather was fantastic for this time of year and it was great to catch up with old friends and meet some new ones.  The staff at the A & A especially, you know who you are!!!

We were also introduced to Taverna Glyfa, heading south just before Barbati, where the food was outstanding.  I can say on par with Trilogia in Kassiopi although not just as expensive.

This taverna is now managed by Yannis who used to work at the restaurant in Kouloura and what a fantastic effort he and his family are putting in, to make this place a success.

Thanks to all the people involved with our last two weeks and roll on next year, when we can hopefully do it all over again.

Yammas, Annie Wink

Nice to know that Glyfa is still enjoyed.
We used to eat there well over 30 years ago, just a wooden shack just up from the beach and a small jetty, no proper path down from the main road, just a scramble from olive tree to tree holding onto a rope to stop you falling straight into the sea below.
No choice of menu, just what they had that day.

Bob, the taverna is visited by many Greek people so that kind of a says it all.

There are now quite a few large concrete steps from the road, down to the taverna and the menu has more than enough to satisfy any appetite.  I am not a fish eater but my friends loved all the sea food they sampled.

They have built a small building next door which houses two very clean toilets.

Service was second to none and the food was just perfect.  Yannis is a lovely young man who has come out of his shell and brims with pride as his Mum is the chef.

I could find no fault with this taverna with such a lovely view.  We will definitely be back.

Lily's Gran, give it a go, you will not regret it.

Annie Thumbs Up

Hi WeeMinx
What did you think of Villa Mangana? Its one we have considered for a large group and may be coming out two families next summer, so might be suitable. It looks quite quirky from the photos. Did you walk to Kalami or up to the main road at all? How long did it take you?
Thanks.

Hello Wee Minx. Putney Sue here. Glad you were able to get in your relaxing Kalami fix after all that energetic sailing earlier in the summer!! I've booked to go back to Kalami next June with a couple of mates for a girlie holiday...leaving our husbands behind for a week!!! Mum doesn't fancy the heat of Corfu anymore (understandable) but she is well and on great form. My friends and I will be staying in Villa Elsi which is right on the beach. Looks lovely and I can't wait!! Will you and the clan be around then??

Hi Corfu Dreamer, Villa Mangana is stunning and although traditional, you still have all the equipment you would have back home, to relax and enjoy your holiday.

The old olive press in the lounge gives you a sense of history and is quite impressive.

The pool is around 40' by 25' with plenty of garden space to sunbathe and obviously enough sunbeds for all.  There are 2 large outside tables if you prefer to eat outside at lunch time etc which are kept in the shade and we made good use of the pool table.

We had a car for the 2 weeks and I would recommend this.  Walking down the hill takes no longer than 10 minutes to Yaliscari, but on a hot day with any amount of shopping, you will be nearly double the time and end up with a bad headache.  If you are keep fit fanatics the walk will not be a problem but do take a torch for night time as it is pitch black.

The local supermarkets will deliver to the villa.

If you were walking up to the road you would have to go back down the hill to come back up again as Mangana is a dead end.  We never done this so I can't give a rough time.

The nearest villa is Milka, around 100 yards down the hill and the only noise we heard from there was a little laughing on a very odd occassion.

I would have no problem in recommending this villa or using it again.  If you do go ahead and book, have a great time.  Smile


Hi Putney Sue, glad to hear all is well with with Mum but sorry we won't see her again in Kalami.  Maybe you can take her there in May time, one year.

Glad you have booked for next year but at this stage we have not made any decisions yet but never say never.  I would really struggle if I never got my Kalami fix at some point.

I know you will have a great time with your girlies so no miss behaving!!! LOL

Hi Annie, would be good to catch up with Wilf again, we seem to have missed each other by a week or so the last two or three years, I will be in Kalami from 5th until 10th June, will he and Carolyn be there then?  Perhaps you could answer this question yourself Wilf.

Hi Dave, yes you will be in luck!  Carolyn and Wilf fly out today (02/6) for a week with two of their friends so you will be able to have a catch up.

This will be a nice surprise for him as I know he enjoys a surprise Wink

Have a few for us please!
