Tsoutsouros – Zorba’s & Triton Hotel

As you are by now well aware, we come back to Greece every few years, so, we have 'favorite' places and we also have places that we say "feels-like-home"... well Tsoutsouros is one of those places and Zorba's restaurant is our feels-like-home place to eat when we stay at the Triton Hotel. Tsoutsouros is a… Continue reading Tsoutsouros – Zorba’s & Triton Hotel

Kalypso Cretan Village Resort and Spa

One of our favorite places, and one we return to every time we come to Greece, is the small town of Plakias. It has become a bit more crowded over the past few years and prices are also continuing to rise. Unfortunately, we decided not to stay right in the town this visit. So, we… Continue reading Kalypso Cretan Village Resort and Spa

Ferry from Agia Roumeli to Chora Sfaklion

A beautiful day for a ferry cruise! Our crew from the day before returned to fetch us from our little village at the end of the Samaria gorge. We were sad to leave but ...on to the next adventure. We stopped in a lovely little place called Loutro where the tourists were far more prevalent… Continue reading Ferry from Agia Roumeli to Chora Sfaklion

Gigilos Hotel & Restaurant – Agia Roumeli

At the very bottom of the Samaria Gorge is a quaint little town that straddles the sea shore for about 1000 meters. It is not only small and intimate but very friendly. The ferry docks at the only dock and you drive right up the center of the cobble stone street to the only main… Continue reading Gigilos Hotel & Restaurant – Agia Roumeli

The Magnificent Mani

A number of years ago I wrote about the Mani Peninsula and how every Mani's home is ...well...his castle! And nothing has changed and it is still so and even more so. There is quite a bit of construction going on here on the Mani and I can understand why. It is one of the… Continue reading The Magnificent Mani

Akrogiali Beach – Restaurants

This small and sleepy village of Akrogiali - "the end of the beach" still has a number of good restaurants to choose from. The day of our arrival when we could not find our apartment we stopped at the Taverna Akrogiali and the owner took my husband in his own car to show him where… Continue reading Akrogiali Beach – Restaurants

Maistrali Restrauant – Loutraki

Our favorite restaurant in Loutraki sits beside the Gulf of Corinth. The blustery wind and the high waves made an exciting dinner time show! The sunset was spectacular! I again opted for the pork souvlaki and my husband again had the eggplant with beef in a dish. Our wait staff were jovial and funny as… Continue reading Maistrali Restrauant – Loutraki

Apology to the GPS Lady

We found a new feature on Google Maps today that has made all the difference in how we view the GPS lady. We now have a much better understanding why she says the things she does. Her directions are not simply out of vindictiveness [for some of the names I have called her]. Or even,… Continue reading Apology to the GPS Lady

Mare Dei Suites Ionian Resort

The soft sand stretches like a golden ribbon across the private sun-drenched beach, tucked into a secluded cove. You feel compelled toward the sea. The warmth of the sand filters through your toes and you can anticipate the cool refreshing water. The crystal clear water laps at your toes and you fall into the blanket… Continue reading Mare Dei Suites Ionian Resort
