We can not rate Nerissa Apartments and more importantly our hosts, Dim and Eleni, highly enough. I could write an essay but will try to keep it short!
Our stay in Kefalonia was perfect and that is largely to do with the fact we stayed at Dim and Eleni's apartments. From start to finish we were made to feel so welcome and at home, it was like staying with much loved family or friends. Dim and Eleni were so attentive to our needs but without being intrusive, from picking us up at the airport, to the generous and delicious welcome package we received on arrival. All the goods, including fresh tomatoes (the best we have ever tasted), veg, fruit, cheese, yogurt, milk, homemade bread and cake, plus organic olive oil, wine and more, are all grown or made by Dim and his wife. They also made us an amazing lunch of stuffed tomatoes and peppers on our day of arrival, so we had no need of going to the shops for several days. Dim also sorted a hire car for us, with a local company (who I would also highly recommend).
The apartment had everything we needed for self catering,a gorgeous seaview balcony with BBQ, was immaculately clean and just perfect for our stay. The location of the apartments (which feels very private), surroundings and view were all stunning. Spartia is a small traditional Greek village, with a couple of small mini markets and two Tavernas, plus two more Tavernas down towards the beach. The area is stunningly beautiful and peaceful with views up to the breathtaking Mount Ainos. It was the perfect place to relax and unwind, which is exactly what we did for two weeks. I have been to many countries, as has my boyfriend and neither of us have been made to feel so welcome or at home anywhere else in the world. Kefalonia is truly magical, unspoilt, friendly, everything you could want from a holiday and Greek Island, I totally fell in love with it and much of that is down to the hospitality and friendship shown by Dim and Eleni. I would have no hesitation in recommending Nerissa Apartments to any of my family or friends and we will definitely be going back again. It is now, without a doubt, my favourite holiday destination/place in the world.
If you decide to visit this magical island, make sure you stay with Dim and Eleni, you will have the holiday of a life time, they are the loveliest people you could wish to meet (his wine's rather good too ;) ) xx
