When we were there last week we used Nonda's pool. We were told that the chef had broken his knee and wouldn't be opening this year.

Thats a shame as we always try to get to Elpitha's at least once during our stay - such a lovely setting and have always had a good meal there.

I imagine that dragging a broken knee up killer hill is a No-No!!
Shame - the first innovative menu in S S at the time!!
I always enjoyed the Elpitha food!

It was Dimitri's brother that had knee problems he told me in May, but spoke as if he was coming along fine- obviously not then. Bet the folks staying at Nondas are none too happy again this year :-\

No - bit of a trek back up killer hill after a bottle or two of wine + mythos, on a full stomach! LOL

Go the opposite way - Through Nonda's bungalows - Down the "step ladder" - Out through Peli & Marias - Also less arduous path behind the Little Prince and out by Tasty Corner !

So it really works then - what exactly is the stepladder?

Of course Peter coped - he's the strongest bloke in San Stefanos!! LOL
The question was is it safe?
Was it as easy to get down as up - I always find Ladders can be dicey going down!

Spoke with Rita & Terry tonight who have just returned from SS - they stayed in apartments / pool next to Elpitha's - and they have reported back that it looks unlikely Elpitha's will open this year due to the knee problem - certainly wasn't fixed last week. And also Olive Press not yet opened although George was making noises that it would very shortly - lets hope so
