Hi Lyndsay,

Hopefully Mick and Jill will see your request they should be able to tell you everything you need to know as they are regular visitors and good friends with the owners.  You could try sending them a pm.

We have eaten quite a few times in the Portofino and the meals were lovely.

Hi Lyndsay.  The apartments are basic but very clean.  There are 2 single beds in each room, a fridge and a shower room.  Spiro has 1 room which can accomodate another single bed.  there is nothing better than sitting ont he veranda with a glass of Baileys watching the sunset.  I wouldn't advise emailing as the only one there at present is Spiro and I don't think he knows how to switch the computer on never mind read e mails  :lol:  

You could try phoning 00302663051834, best to try about 7pm our time, don't give up if there isn't an answer it normally takes me a few attempts before they pick up.

Jill  :D

Hi Marie,

Were not sure yet when we are going back.  We are just waitin to get xmas over and a couple of them are talking about going to new york to see our other friend.  But i was on the internet yesterday looking at prices etc, thinking about going in July hopefully the 8th or 15th maybe, just a matter of waiting to find out minor details.

Hi Lisa

Spiro, Helen and the kids are like family to us and we keep in regular contact.  Spiro isn't the party animal he used to be but he still manages to give us a run for our money when we are over there.  His wife Helen is still in America receiving treatment but she is responding to the therapy and hopefully will be back in Arillas for next season.  I spoke to Spiro and Vicky last week and everyone was fine.  Hopefully one of our daughters will be staying with Vicky once the season starts - peace and quite from May to October, can't wait.

Hi Lisa

Little George was 2 on the 7th December.  Vicky and Yannis slept at his mums house during the season and with being short staffed in the restaurant George stayed there most of the time with his gran.  We only seen him a couple of times ourselves when we were over in September when we took him into Corfu Town and when he came to play football at Portofino.
