“worth the hill!”
Reviewed 3 August 2009

A kefalonia virgin but have this morning arrived back from the most wonderful week on the most beautiful island and will definitely be returning. Lassi is a great resort, pleasantly just 10mins from airport so from backage collection to beach in an hour! We got dropped by our transfer coach at the bottom of the dreaded hill! it was midday, we had luggage and I'm not the fittest 33 year old i know but it was do-able! it's not pleasant or fun but it makes for great views. We had an inland room booked but were so pleased to be given room 8 which has a magnificent view of the coast. At sunset this was truly breathtaking. I wasn't expecting much from the apartment but was really pleasantly surprised. Small but perfectly formed. The bathroom was very modern and had the best shower i've seen in any accomodation in a long time. The kitchen was very basic and had nowhere to toast anything but everything was clean and functional. The apartment was cleaned daily and fresh towels/sheets either every day or everyother day. There is no reception area at these apartments and so other than the rep it was hard to get in touch with anyone if you had a question. We were disappointed to have to pay 15 E for safety box and be told that Air conditioning was 50 E for week. we simply couldn't justify this and so went without. Night times were hot but not unbearably so, so i'm glad we didn't get it really.
The location of the apartments was great for us. A 20min stroll to main "long beach" but nice little cove beach just 2mins away. These apartments are at the end of the strip which was fairly lively, just right for couples. Being up the hill meant we were away from main road noise and passers by.
We hired a car for 3 days, which we were nervous about as we had never done before. It was great and would definitely recomment this to see the island. We only went as far as Sami and visited argostoli and found a couple of great little beaches on the way home from places. (St thoma and antisamos).
Kefalonia is magnificent. I have been to Thailand, france, spain turkey etc etc and have never seen better beaches or clearer water. It didn't feel like typical Greece and really does have its own unique charm. The people are just great and there's not of that desperation to get you in their bar or restaurant that you get elsewhere.
Oh, another thing on the apartments...there was disappointingly no courtesy room. This was really inconvenient as we had a 10pm flight. The apartments were obviously not full and this really was inconvenient as we had to get changed in public and there was no loo etc to use. This would be my only real criticism of the holiday...which all in all is just a niggle. It really was fantastic. If you go.....ENJOY!!!!
