BEFORE our plane had even landed in Kefalonia, I had already fallen a little in love with the island.
As we came into land, we flew over the most beautiful beaches and turquoise seas, pretty little villages scattered across the hills, all lit up by the most glorious sunshine.
And so I knew, before my eager feet had even touched the hot tarmac, that I had found a Greek paradise. And, that I was going to love it.
The holiday started on the very best note.
After a short plane delay which left us sat still on the runway at Newcastle Airport, the Captain very kindly invited the children (and parents) to visit the cockpit. Excitement all round as you can imagine.
And after a pleasant flight of about 3 or so hours, we were soon there.
As a little family, we booked our holiday with Thomson as we wanted everything to be easy and thankfully it was. On arrival and after a short coach trip we arrived at our home for the week, the simply stunning Panorama Village in Lassi.
Panorama Village has absolutely glowing reviews on Trip Advisor and totally well deserved they are too.
The complex of self catering apartments is stunning.
Authentic, pretty and offering everything you need for a relaxing summer holiday, including the most amazing sea views.
We were given a lovely ground floor apartment with a terrace and this incredible view, that we enjoyed every single day. Bliss!
The inside of the apartment was exactly as you’d expect from a Greek holiday apartment – pretty basic but more than adequate.
We had a little kitchenette which was brilliant, air conditioning (a must!) and Elsie had plenty of room to let loose!
But it’s the outside that makes this complex so special.
Sea views to die for, the most stunning pool…
And a relaxed poolside bar that serves the most amazing cocktails.
