Participants in the Metaxart summer workshops are responsible for making their own travel arrangements from their location to Poros, Kefalonia, Greece. However, we will be happy to assist with accommodation information, your travel planning and are at hand if you need advice regarding your stay in the island.
Kefalonia has an international airport (EFL) with direct flights from several cities among the world. (http://kefaloniaairport.info)
After arriving at Kefalonia airport, the road journey to Poros takes about 45min. This can be by taxi though most participants hire a car and drive themselves.
The taxi fare is a minimum of 55.00€ each way, so driving to and from the airport actually pays for a few days car hire. Nevertheless the village of Poros is set to be one of the main ports of Kefalonia which connects daily the mainland with the island. Do not hesitate to call us for more information.
The Metaxart cooperates with local hotels and house residencies that we highly recommend them for its workshop participants, all with reasonable prices.
“Rural and secluded retreat” at Tzanata Village
“Dora’s holiday house on the beach”
“Luxurious Holiday Villa with private pool” http://www.holidaylettings.co.uk/rentals/poros/5888560
“Oceanis Hotel” offers 20% discount for the workshop participants
Please view their websites.
Metaxart will coordinate reservations for participants and assist with alternative hotels if so desired. However, payment for the hotel is the responsibility of the participant. Hotel prices are not included in the program costs. For more information regarding the participating residencies as well as recommendations for alternative hotels please inquire with Natasha Metaxa.
Please take out insurance as we cannot be held responsible for any costs associated with travel delays, accidents or health issues that might arise whilst you are on the island.
