  • attitudes shown, the welcome we received, and standards of hospitality and helpfulness
  • location and setting
  • standard of facilities
  • price and value for money

Comments given relate purely to the dates of our stay, often the peak summer holiday season.

10~14 June 2004 €22

UNDULY EXPENSIVE
Large and rather run down camping-village on coast just north of Preveza; best thing to be said about facilities were the swallows nesting in light fitting; wild beach looking out over Ionian Sea; supermarket in Preveza, an otherwise featureless town; be sure to visit archaeological sites of Kassope and Nikopolis, and monastery of Zalonga cliff
