We stayed in the Lido for a week in August and had a lovely week. The directions to get to the villa were amazing and set the standard for the week. Nick and Sarah were the perfect hosts and made the week extra special, so thanks! The villa has an excellent localtion, right next to the sea, walking distance into Sami and also surrounded by several local houses, which made you fully appreciate you were in Greece. The pool was also lovely. Definitely recommend!
What a great place and so close to the sea! A bright, modern and clean
complex. A friendly and informative welcome from Sarah and Nick and a
few essential provisions means you can start your holiday straight away.
The apartment has everything you need for a comfortable and relaxing
stay but I especially liked the TWO balconies, one of which has a
spectacular sea view. Guess where I had breakfast everyday? I like self
catering because of the flexibility it gives me and found there to be a
good range of local shops and tavernas to enjoy both eating out and in.
I'd highly recommend getting a car so that you can explore further
afield and find some amazing beaches.
We stayed at Lida as a couple and from the start Nick and Sarah were tip top with their directions and friendly greetings when we arrived. The apartment is really nice, well equipped and just what we needed.
Sami is pleasant and we enjoyed spending time on beautiful Antisamos beach which is very close. Also in walking distance is Melissani cave, which is gorgeous too. The whole island is so beautiful. Hire a car and scare yourselves on the mountain roads! Failing that, just kick back in the environs of the apartment. All good :)

Definitely a more homely feel than 'usual' holiday rentals abroad. Very compact but well designed and well equipped. Sarah and Nick extremely helpful with directions to the property and during our stay providing us with beach towels and a cool box for use in the hire car. They manage the art of being close at hand without being intrusive. Our first trip to Kefalonia which is such a beautiful island, hiring a car is a must but stick to the main roads the mountain roads can be treacherous. Wasps were the biggest 'low' for us but the 'highs' more than made up for the pests. There are lots of small coves and beaches to explore with breath-taking scenery and excellent places to eat within walking distance of the apartment.
