This was our second trip back to The Olive Garden and once again we had a great family holday. We opted for a 2 bedroom appartment for 5 which was great, we had two balconies both with great sea views and the appartment was well equipped and exceptionally well cleaned 6 days per week. The grounds and the pool area were also kept very clean. Nicky, Nikos and Zoe behind the bar were always on hand to help with any problems, call taxis and serve delicious food and drinks- especially the pizza! The owner of these appartments lives just above the complex so if there were any major problems (which there weren't) he was always around.
Yes there was no shower curtain, yes the air con coud have done with remote controls but very minor points and made absolutely no difference to our holiday. The Olive Garden is such a relaxing place to stay, the views are amazing, there are plenty of seated areas in the shade at all times of the day, there is no mad rush to reserve sun beds . The pool can get sort of busy but nothing like big hotels and at other times it is totally empty. James the Thomson rep was very helpful regarding the Island and hiring cars etc etc. My children had great fun at the pool games he organised on a Friday aternoon.
Although there is the hill to contend with, The Olive gardens are well postioned as you can walk into both Lassi and Argostolli . The island of Kefalonia is stunning and you need to hire a car to fully appreciate this. Fiskardo and Poros were my two favourites. But if you want to remain in Lassi there are lots of restaurants, supermarkets and Costa Costa beach.
We will definitely return!!
