Camping in Greece...





...Sofas, no not the furniture in our living rooms, but a beautiful beach on the Ionian coastline. At the moment the only way to get to the beach is through the only campsite in the area, Sofas Camping. A family run business, Sofas camping has been welcoming campers from all over the world over the last fifteen years.



During my childhood in the UK, my idea of camping was based on what I saw on TV, and I must admit that a few "Carry on..." movies, for those of you that remember them, may not be the greatest advertisement for a campsite. Therefore, when I visited, I was astounded at what it actually involved. The first impression is that of awe, as you descend the road into the camp, the beautiful plants and flowers which line the roads and discreetly hide the buildings, give you the first feeling of tranquility. You reach the taverna, furnished with traditional chairs and tables, reminding some other time, maybe even a clip from the Zorbas movie. A few steps away is the bar, again not noticeable, but there for those who would like to enjoy their morning coffee looking out onto the sea, or for others who search for perfect sunsets on warm summer days, it provides the perfect atmosphere.




The beach stretches out directly in front of the campsite, a mixture of small pebbles and coars sand paves the way to the clean, clear blue sea, and there you find yourself lucky to have found one of those spots....you know...where narure seems to have done man's work...a small earthly paradise...



You don't even have to leave to find somethign to eat. The owners ensure that you can find essentials like bread and dairy products, and there is always a great selection of traditional greek meals for lunch or dinner. Once a week, they even have a Greek Night, with live music, and a chance to partake in a syrtaki or two...



The service is exceptional, and the atmosphere warm and friendly....try it out...
