I received an email today from Greek Options. They say Sunvil have taken over a number of their properties and will be selling them with flights next year. Sad that GO have gone but nice that another independent have taken on Stoupa

Very sad to read this thread about Greek Options

Returned from staying at the Trochalo late September and made a provisional booking for September 2013 with GO for the same property the day after we returned.

Telephoned Sunvil yesterday to be advised that our provisional reservation had been 'transferred' and was on their books.

Hope this is useful to anyone in a similar predicament and would certainly advise they contact Sunvil.

Sad news about Greek Options and best wishes to Jacinthe and all at Thomeas travel for the future. Reckon they were squeezed by the recession, which is one reason we didn't make it this or last year, and the dearth of seats on airlines you could trust to run for more than one season, which was one factor that sent us back to Parga. Sunvil have had their share of airline problems too, as they usually used same flights as GO. Shame that the easyJet decision has come too late, as perhgaps that could have been a way forward for GO. I know we booked accommodation on Paxos through GO and an easyJet flight a few years ago, and had a fine time.

Very sad about Greek Options. We have been in touch via e mail with Thomasea Travel about our May hol to Stoupa. They can do the package we would have booked with Greek Options. The only differance is because of the mad price Thomas Cook want for the flight we would have to fly Easy Jet from Manchester to Athens. Thomasea would arrange everything including the taxi transfer from Athens to Stoupa. They have quoted what we feel is a very reasonable price. So if we can get my partners hip sorted in time we will be there in May :D
Does anyone know why Greek Options stopped trading? Was it financial or did it just get to be too muh hassel to deal with Thomas Cook and the other here today gone tomorrow airlines that fly to Kalamata????

Greek Options have stopped trading, they traveled not just to Kalamata, but to other parts of Greece. So read into that what you will. I believe that they did what they needed to do, and no GO customers have been left stranded abroad, so hats off to them...

This is fantastic for the village of Stoupa and surrounding area. Good news at last. Well done Sunvil.
