MAN: Greek Island Holidays,can I help you?
WOMAN: Yes,I hope so.I have a friend who's just come back from Corfu and she's recommended some apartments in Arilas.She thought they might be on your list.
MAN: Arilas,Arilas,let me see.Can you give me the names?
WOMAN: Yes,the first's Rose Garden Apartments.I'd like to go with another friend in the last week of October.
MAN: Well,we've got a lovely studio flat available at that time.I'm sure you'd enjoy the entertainment programme there too,with Greek dancing in the restaurant.
WOMAN: And the cost for each of us?
WOMAN: That sounds very reasonable!I'm just jotting down some notes.Now the second one she mentioned was called Blue Bay.
MAN: Blue Bay?Yes,in fact that's very popular and it has some special features.
MAN: The main attraction is the large swimming pool with salt water.
WOMAN: Much healthier,I understand.
MAN: That's right.And it isn't far from the beach,either - only 300 metres,and only around half a kilometre to some shops,so you don't have to be too energetic.
WOMAN: Is it much more expensive than the first one?
MAN: Let me just check.I think at the time you want to go it's around ￡260 - no ￡275 to be exact.
WOMAN: Right,I've got that.Now there are just two more apartments to ask you about.Um,I can't read my own writing!Something to do with sun...Sunshine,is it?
MAN: I think you meant the Sunshade Apartments.They're on a mountainside.
WOMAN: Any special features?
MAN: Yes,each room has its own sun terrace and there are shared barbecue facilities.
WOMAN: Sounds lovely!
MAN: Yes,it is rather well-equipped.It also provides water sports - it has its own beach.There are facilities for water-skiing.
WOMAN: Any kite-surfing?My friend's quite keen.
MAN: Not at the hotel but I'm sure you'll find some in Arilas.There's also satellite TV in the apartments.
WOMAN: And how much is that one?
MAN: ￡490 with two sharing.
WOMAN: You mean ￡245 each?
MAN: I'm afraid not!Each person has to pay that amount and there must be at least two in an apartment.
WOMAN: I don't think that would be within our budget,unfortunately.And the last one sounds a bit expensive too - the Grand!
MAN: Actually it's quite reasonable.It's an older style house with Greek paintings in every room,and a balcony outside.
WOMAN: Sound nice.What are the views like?
MAN: Well,there are forests all round and they hide a supermarket just dow the road,so that's very useful for all your shopping needs.There's a disco in the area too.
WOMAN: And the price?
MAN: ￡319 at that time,but if you leave it till November it goes down by 40%.
WOMAN: Too late,I'm afraid.
MAN: Well,why don't i send you a brochure with full details,Ms...?
WOMAN: Nash.But don't worry about that.I'm coming to Upminster soon and I'll call and get one.I just wanted to get an idea first.
MAN: Well,that's fine.We've got plenty here when you come.
