Apologies that it’s been a bit quiet on the blog front for the last couple of weeks but I have been on holiday, soooooooo very relaxing and much needed for us both. We stayed in a villa nestled in the hillside between San Stefanos and Kerasia in Cofu, it was fantastic!
We had our own swimming pool, it was one of those infinity pools looking out into an endless expanse of olive grove that rambled right down to the sea.
A fabulous barbecue area overlooking the pool and beyond to the sea.
We have been to this area a few times now and have found that wherever we have stayed there is always a resident cat but this year we had three gorgeous kittens as well, how sweet is that? We spent a fortune on cat food and the local supermarket sold out 10 days into the holiday, but never mind our little furry friends were quite happy with dog food for the last few days.
Yes there are three kittens there it’s just that the little white one is hiding at the back.
It is such a lovely place and we know many of the locals here now and everyone makes you feel so welcome it is like home from home. San Stefanos is quite small formerly a little fishing village, there are just three bars and five restaurants along the waterfront each with a seating area directly overlooking the beautiful bay and all of which serve fabulous food. The seafood is particularly fantastic as it is all caught locally each day. I love Mussels Saganaki which is very similar to Moules Mariniere but with the local Feta Cheese added as well.
Mmmmmmmmm…….. delicious. Followed by the catch of the day, grilled prawns, look at the size of the little critters and they don’t even call them King Prawns!
Finally my favourite dessert, greek yoghurt with honey and walnuts. Sorry about the photo of a partly consumed pudding but you are lucky there is a photo at all!
This wonderful array of goodies was enjoyed al fresco at our favourite of the five restaurants Taverna Kochili and complimented with a bottle of local wine at a table overlooking the bay with the moonlight reflecting on the water.
There is so much more I would like to share with you but I am afraid it may become tiresome, there is nothing worse than trawling through other folks holiday snaps is there? So I will leave it there for now and tell you about the fish market another time.
Oh, also met a fellow hooker Mrs C and spent a happy morning together with hooks and yarn while she kindly worked out a pattern that has had me baffled for ages, my grateful thanks Mrs C. More on our morning to follow………..
