Thanks for your lovely comments Janet and Martha it was a pleasure to have you stay,  from what I heard Arillas took you to her heart as much as you did hers.

Phil you ol' rogue, blatherskite, ratbag...sack Saint Eggy?  Never....we know we are lucky to have him around....the man's worth his weight in...in.....ouzo....!!! ;-)

Ah Martha and Janet

It pains me to tell you that all the Ouzo has gone to " A good Home" and the bottle is now waiting to do it's bit in the re-cyling bin.

It was a terrible shame to open it but the responsibility fell to me and it's not like me to let anyone down.
Cheers

Don't humour him luvvers. Just pour another ouzo. He is really quite harmless....

Reports of him having a father who is even worse are grossly exagerrated. Or at least I think so.

Janet - I don't want to make you too jealous but I'm typing this is the bedroom of Villa Linakis to keep out of the late afternoon heat :-)

It's been (and still is) very windy today so we had to head down to Portofino for a leisurely lunch followed by a frappe at Ammos before the slow meander back to the Villa and a swim to cool off again.

As you say Villa Linakis has everything you could possibly want! We rent out holiday property in the Lakes in the UK and I never really understood before why people often say "thank you for letting us stay" in our visitors' book.  Now I have spent a week in Villa Linakis I understand for the first time. It really feels like a privilege to be allowed to stay in such a lovely home.

The villa, the pool, Eileen and everyone who helps her out have been magnificent. The resort itself is ideal - quietish but with enough variety of tavernas and bars to be interesting. and I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Villa Linakis. It's not the cheapest option but you really do get what you pay for .

Hmm...  Now I know this thread creep but does anyone know where a good grilled octopus can be had?

Hi Pommie,

Lucky you to be staying at the Villa Linakis, we havent stayed there, but had a nosey when we were in Arillas in June.  It is beautifil isnt it, so peaceful and luxuriant. 

Havent had octopus anywhere myself, but if you go down to the village taking the left fork past the Tria, you will see Vavilas fish taverna on the right.  Ask Thomas about octopus, if he doesnt do it, he will probably be able to tell you where.  Vavilas is delicious if you love fish!

Happy holidays

Hi Janet

That sums it up really - a lovely villa in a lovely resort :-) How do you improve on that ???

Ah yes - Octopus :-)

Still can't find any - Thomas at Vavilas (have I spelled that right??) said it was too expensive to get it in! Mind you we had a superb fish dinner there last night - Greek salad, vine leaves then half a small lobster and 3 fish each for the big people and kalamaria and chips for the small person, followed by baklava and lemon cake, and washed down with copious draughts of house wine and lemon fanta (not mixed together obviously) and it came to less than 10 Euro each - amazing!!!

Do they weigh you as well as the bags at the airport? Hope not :-)

Hi Janet

LOL...fortunately not otherwise I would have had a small fortune to pay this year!

On the far side of Agios Georgios there is a fish restaurant called the Fisherman's Cabin which has grown into a bit of a legend from what I hear.  I've yet to visit but heard yet more rave reviews when over a  couple of weeks ago...http://www.agiosgeorgios.co.uk/fishermans.htm

I'm off to warn your airline to fill up with more fuel next Monday!!! :-o
