... together as well as individually. Enjoyed a chocolate martini – hmmmmmm…..could get used to these!
Early night tonight. We are going to anchor at Santorini tomorrow. I have always wanted to visit this island and I am VERY looking forward to it!
Before bed we went out onto our balcony. The full moon illuminated the white tips of the waves as we sailed. The breeze is quite warm and balmy. I am so loving this holiday.

The dolmuş is an interesting thing here in turkey. They are small, a cross between a minivan and minibus in size and have a few seats- but more people stand. The dolmuş stops, as many people as can squeeze aboard do, everyone passes up their money to the driver and the driver continues down the road ...

The fish was definitely fresh, grilled and served whole with a side of lemon and olive oil (which, i later found out when the bill came, was not included- they charged for the bread, olive oil and lemon separately- crazy!)
26th - 28th July We have had a great time here in Cesme with Mete and his family. They have been very kind and took very good care of us. The first day here Mete took us out on his boat the "KOMODOR". We travelled around the coast and went swimming in the clear blue warm water of the Mediterranean. We could see the Greek Islands but unfortunately we did not get a chance to visit. Apparently the ...
... on the drive out the peninsula. Lots of windmills taking advantage of the strong Aegean winds. We had read that the beach by the Sheraton was great and you could pay to park in their garage for the day. Larissa pulled up, hopped out and had her car valet parked by the young male attendants free of charge. Dan pulled in right behind her and was charged 10 Turkish Lira, still a ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Anniska & Liakoto Kardamila
My Favorite Hotel in Kardamili
We spent two weeks in Kardamili - in Anniska hotel.
we moved to Kardamili from a house in the mountains because of the fires (summer 07') and we looked for a cozi place with the advantages of an hotel. The place immediately felt like home! Aliace and Jery were very nice and the entire atmosphere was just great.
the hotel team isalso nice and very responsiveness.
When we needed any advice regarding the area, they were there for us.

Anniska is heaven in a hotel
Our stay at Anniska was a highlight in our trip to the peloponnese. The apartment we stayed in was in the main hotel with two lovely balconies with sea views and breezes. The apartment was immaculate, shower was lovely, and kitchenette was perfect for al fresco lunches. With all this it sounds like the perfect haven but it gets better. The owners are beyond fabulous. As well as their sun deck and loungers by the med. This is a place to get away from it all, have great conversations with other guests who return year after year and explore the sights of the peloponnese. Highly recommended. I can not wait to go back.
The owners, Gerry and Ilia, are wonderful hosts. Nothing was too much trouble.
Our three room apartment was spotless, comfortable with great views from two balconies.
We particularly liked the sun terrace with a path to the sea and a sea ladder for swimming. All the other guests we met come back every year. I believe 75% of their guests return and we just made it 76%.
I had a lovely swim also in the pool across the road at their other place. Kardamyli is a delightful, quiet little village with good restaurants and shops. Cannot recommend it this place enough.
The hotel is located on a quiet street and faces the sea. One can swim off the rocks into the sea and there is a ladder to get in and out of the water. The owners and staff are friendly and helpful. You feel like you're staying in a home. You can also use the pool at their other hotel. The Anniska is a short walk to great restaurants and the center of town. It was a lovely experience.
This was our third year in a row! We've previously stayed in Liakoto, but this year also tried out the newly refurbished Anniska.
Anniska is a thoroughly enjoyable, relaxing, friendly and immaculately located jewel for those looking to spend a leisurely escape from the worries of the world. The rooms are very neat and tiddy with most of the mod cons, and even the "partial ocean view" from our room was wonderful. Swimming in the clear, warm water is 30 seconds away. There are nearly a dozen charming tabernas within very easy walking distance. And most impressively, the innkeepers Ilia and Gerry as well as the entire Paliatseas family and staff seem to intuit whether you need peace and quiet, a gin and tonic, or to be regaled with great conversation or an outrageous tall tale or three. We were not surprised to meet two different travelers on their tenth or twelth visit [really!!!]. I am not sure if we will make it for a baker's dozen, but we will be back.
Still relatively untroubled by the tourist hordes down the coast in Stoupa, Kardimili remains blissfully calm and there is nowhere more blissful than Hotel Anniska, run by Ilea and Gerry, who are simply the most caring and hospitable hosts one could wish for. The hotel has been refurbished recently and it manages the clever trick of remaing modest but ensuring that all the necessary comforts are on tap. Facing directly onto the sea, the location simply can't be improved upon and the service by all the staff is genuinely the friendliest I have ever come across.
I was recommended to go to Anniska in Kardamyli through a friend, who had spent a week there. I went ten years ago and have returned every year. Anniska is one of those small, family run hotels where you immediately feel at home. The owners, Ilia and Gerry, create this warm, friendly atmosphere, which nowadays is hard to find. The hotel is magnificently situated next to the sea and has one of the best terraces you can find anywhere. The rooms are well furnished in an understated way, all with good modern bathrooms and well designed kitchenettes. Each room has a balcony or two either overlooking the sea or the spectacular mountain range behind the hotel.
If you are thinking of travelling to Kardamyli, you must must must stay at Anniska. The rooms are great and recently refurbished, but the real attraction are the couple who run it, Gerry and Ilia, and their fabulous terrace. I spent hours and hours on it when I was there in May and got lost staring out to see. It really is the perfect place to get away from it all. The sea is just a short hop down the rocks and there are loads of great restaurants in the village. If you're thinking of it, don't hesitate! You'll love it.
It's hard to imagine anywhere more timeless and simple and magical as the village of Kardamyli. Anniska Hotel perfectly complements the surroundings. Run by the loveliest couple, Gerry and Ilia, who somehow manage to make the place a haven. One could spend all day on the terrace overlooking the sea. The place is unique for being sandwiched between mountains and sea with air that has healing qualities (even referred in Homer).
The rooms are simple and unfsussy but great care has been taken with attention to all the details that make sea -side stays so enjoyable. It's gracious, freindly, simple and draws everyone who comes here back again and again.
