Regular guests will be pleased to learn that Lido Apartments have recently had a comprehensive upgrade (winter 2012). Decor has been refreshed and new equipment, fixtures and fittings installed, along with some new furniture.
Lido is our main accommodation in Tolon. We selected it for its very spacious accommodation and excellent location, being in a quiet side street a minute or two’s walk from the beach and the street (with no hills to negotiate). To the front, across the side road, the Lido has its own large freshwater swimming pool (depth 1m-1.75m) with poolside furniture.
Built around a courtyard in a number of 2-storeyed blocks, all units have air- conditioning. The studios are first (top) floor with twin beds, kitchenette (mini- oven, hob, fridge); shower room with wc; and balcony or sun terrace. They can take an extra folding bed for a child with ease.
The 1-bedroomed apartments have a twin bedroom; living room area (again spacious with a twin or double sofa-bed or two single beds), kitchenette (mini-oven, hob, fridge - one named Aphrodite II has a larger kitchen area and a full cooker); bathroom with half-bath, shower, wc; and balcony or terrace.
The 2-bedroomed apartments are on three levels maisonette style. They comprise an upper ground floor open-plan living room with a twin bedded sleeping gallery above and a cool lower-ground floor twin or triple bedroom. Other facilities are as per the 1-bedroom.
There is also a detached 3-bedroom unit called Villa Thalia which sleeps up to 6 persons. Also built on three levels, Thalia comprises an upper ground floor containing a separate twin bedroom, living room with kitchenette (mini-oven, rings, fridge), bathroom with shower and wc, and front terrace. The lower ground floor has two twin bedrooms (interconnecting, so for families only) and a second bathroom with full bath,
shower, wc. The living room has a small gallery above which can be used as a second sitting area. This leads onto an open rooftop sun terrace (shared with the solar panels to one side!).
An iron and ironing board can be supplied on request locally in all units. Lido has always been well priced, and we now consider it to offer even better value after its recent renovation.
Air-conditioning: Available at a local daily charge of 6 Euros per day.
Free Bicycles & Canoes for Lido Guests
To help make the most of your holiday in Tolon on land and on the sea we are providing a communal pool of bicycles for all Lido guests to use free of charge, and free use of canoes from Poseidon water sports. We have both adult and child sizes available for canoes and bikes (frame sizes from 20" to 26").
The area around Tolon is excellent for cycling, being on the whole largely flat with a network of small country roads running through orange and lemon groves. Go just over the headland to explore ancient Assini, Tolon's own Homeric site as mentioned in The Iliad. The road then continues through the villages of Drepano, Vivari (good fish tavernas here), Kandia and down the coast to Iria (c 18 kms).
Bikes are intended for casual daytime use around the local area only - they are not permitted to be ridden to Nafplion for example, as the main road is busy and Greek drivers are not the most cycle-aware! Any loss or damage to the bicycle is the users responsibility. Locks and helmets are provided but you are of course welcome to bring your own; and kiddy-seats are available at a small local charge (note: we do not supply helmets for small children). There is a small charge for repairs (punctures etc.) and should you need assistance outside Tolon a call-out charge will be made.
Bicycles and canoes are subject to availability and fair usage policy - they are not intended for unlimited use. Please book them out via your Sunvil Tolon representative. As there is no charge made, no refunds will be considered for any reason.
We are sure that the provision of these facilities at no additional cost will enhance your overall holiday experience to Lido and Tolon.
