Kos - Our Holiday at the Aegean Village

Sunrise from our balcony
Hi,
I know this is a late post but since we arrived back I have had the flu and the last couple of weeks its just laid me out.  Anyway better late than never and this was the most brilliant holiday so I just had to write about it.   We stayed at the Aegean Village near Kardamena,   lovely hotel, personally we would recommend this Hotel and will go back again in a few years time.  We like to leave a gap for a few years but will definitely go back,  we could not have wished for a better place.   The food was lovely the room was lovely with the biggest bed we have ever had, Vernon laid across it and he's 5ft 10ins and there was still several inches from the edge of the bed,  it must have been 6ft across. Certainly larger than a King size bed.
  They said there was a mini bus to take you up to and from the room which were in blocks going up the hill side 24/7  yes well we have all read things in the books and its not quite true,  well it was it did not matter what time you need the mini bus he was there,  you could arrived back on site after a night out or arrive at the hotel in the middle of the night and he was there.   

 The beach was directly opposite the hotel just a walk down the slope,  looks hot yes it was.  The gardens were immaculate watered every night.

Swimming Pool

 The pool was peaceful,   and they had a brilliant animation team that's the European word from Entertainment group,  they would come around starting at 10 o'clock with "We are going to do Yoga at 10 o'clock would you like to join us",  then it was mini golf, darts, etc etc all day,  and then at night more Bingo,  and the best Greek night I have ever been to,  with a group of dancers who did three sets, first was ancient dances of Greece, then traditional dances and then modern Greek dances with a Greek band.  We did take some video of the night.
View from our balcony
This is the view from out Balcony,  to wake up to that view every morning was a treat,  that's Turkey in the background,   we did do a trip to Turkey and I will do a separate post on that.

We needed a restful holiday and that's what we had a great holiday at a good hotel.  When we were about to land at Kos airport I saw a blue dome on top of a hillside with lights going down the hillside,   little did I know that's where we would be staying.

I am going to finish with this picture,   my husband is not into computers at all,   now I wish I had brought him this tea-shirt.

Hope you are having a lovely weekend
           Hugs
