We booked through Jet2, for two weeks in Apartment 4 a ground floor two bedroom apartment, arriving on the 15 June. The accommodation is of a very high standard with a fully kitted kitchen with full cooker, fridge freezer and all the usual bits and pieces. Air con in the kitchen/ lounge living area, and in the main bedroom, with another bedroom we usd as a dressing room ! . Flora the maid does an amazing job at maintaining everything in tip top fashion. There are a few friendly cats on site, we had a particularly friendly neutered female, white with a few patches, that used to turn up on our patio, who we nicknamed ‘flu cat’ as she sneezed from time to time....so if anyone is staying here in the future please look out for her and give some affection, which a lot of these cats don’t get very often. (She doesn’t try and get into the apartment).
Just returned from a wonderful stay at Marilia villas. We had a 3 bed apartment which has everything you need. Comfortable beds, 2 bathrooms and 2 sun terraces. These villas are in an ideal location in Lassi, very close to Makris Gialos beach and also within easy walking distance of the many shops, bars and tavernas. One thing I must mention is how well these villas are looked after by the maid who services them daily and keeps the gardens looking beautiful.
Marilia Villas proved to be a wonderful place to stay for our first visit to Kefalonia. Marilia herself, supported by her maid, Flora, makes every effort to ensure you enjoy your stay. We stayed in two of the Villas during our holiday, Villa 5 & 3 and both provided clean, well appointed, high quality accommodation. Beds and bedrooms are comfortable and air-conditioned. Showers are powerful and unless you have abnormal levels of thunderstorms as we did, the solar hot water is endless. Wi Fi is fast enough for a Netflix stream on your iPad if you dare do that on holiday!
Lassi may be described as being more "touristy" but by normal ( e.g.Costa del Sol) standards it is calm and relaxed with an infinite variety of welcoming, family run restaurants to give you a wide choice of evening dining venues. If you lean more towards fine dining occasionally, speak to Marilia - she knows some great places to eat and to visit. Marilia can also get the chaps at the Ionian Car Rental depot to deliver (and collect) from the Villa. Recommend a car for at least some of your stay - there's a lot to be had from cruising the island and seeing other villages such a Scala, Sami etc.
You are only 5 mins walk for Makris Gialos beach. Sandy, warm azure sea, optional sun beds served by runners from the on-beach taverna. Hotels across the road from the villa give you the pool and poolsiden bar option.
I felt compelled to write a personal note to Marilia thanking her for providing the venue for a truely relaxing holiday and for being always in contact to ensure all our needs were met. We can't recommend it more highly and encourage you to book yourself in
The villas are situated a minute walk away from Makris Gialos beach and are on the main street running through Lassi. The villas are set off from the road, making them peaceful.
The villas are modern, with stylish bathroom, A/C in the bedrooms and all the appliances you'd require. They also have a large balcony at one end (and smaller one shared between the bedrooms to the rear), which is a lovely space to relax in at any time of day.
Nearby there is everything you need and want, being so close to Lassi; convenience stores, car rental, beach, restaurants & cafes and a very short journey to Argostoli (half hour walk or 5 minute taxi).
Marilia, the owner is warm and friendly and she came round to speak to us and ensure that we were having a good time and had everything we needed. Marilia's cat is also very friendly, although unfortunately we couldn't take the cat home!
Next time we are there, we'd definitely try and book Marilia Villas again. It was the base for a great holiday.
Lovely accommodation. Comfortable beds, new bathroom and it was all spotlessly clean.
Less than 5 mins walk to an amazing sandy beach. Short walk to supermarket and local restaurants or you can get a taxi to Argostoli to the livelier bars and clubs.
Marilia arranged our taxi from the airport which was £18.
The costa costa beach bar nearby is gorgeous.
We had previously stayed in the villa a year ago and were very happy with it on that occasion. The first thing we noticed this time was that the bathroom had been given a complete and very stylish refit: new walk-in powerful shower, freestanding sink, new WC and fresh tiling. Other improvements were also apparent, such as new light switches and baskets, which goes to show the owner's commitment to quality and maintenance. As always, the maid Flora visited each day and kept the villa and grounds spotlessly clean. The Wi-Fi was quick and reliable (not always the case on holiday! ) Marilia always responded very promptly to all our messages.
Good location close to the beach however nothing is too far in Lassi. The apartment was immaculate and cleaned by Flora every day. The facilities were good and it was well equipped. The beds in particular were very comfy to sleep on and each bedroom had air conditioning.
The terrace had really comfy chairs and loungers and made the whole experience very relaxing.
The people are very friendly and the restaurants were always able to accommodate you at any time.
We used local hotel pools if we wanted a change from the beach.
