Hi I've been to Lassi many times and adore it. Have stayed in many hotels and apartments and last year stayed ast the Irilena which is on a main road but a lovely small, clean, friendly modern hotel. It was quite pricey for the single room but why don't you have a look at some of the apartments - there are many lovely ones and you will probably want to eat out when you get there anyway + many seem more spacious. I particularly like the Thekla apartments which are very convenient and clean/modern. Sadly I can't go this year but I am still there in my head and hope to go back soon.
Just a little help needed please! We have wanted to go to lassi for several years now and had never made it. This year is no exception. Our problem lies with the fact that we can only book quite late and we need two studios for a total of three people. We usually go to hotels, but White Rocks do not cater for single travellers. The price is extortionate! Thomas Cook told us of the Liberatos studios and they looked good but were up a hill. Again being up a hill is a problem for us! For next year I had the idea that we would be fine up a hill if we hired a car and drove down the hill, parked up and drove back again! That would depend on whether there were car parks or not. It sounds extreme but it would give us access to beaches all over the island too and we usually do hire a car for a few days anyway. I would welcome any comments from people who have a working knowledge of lassi.Thank you in anticipation.
my third visit to lassi, stayed each time at the lorenzo hotel. love the resort. plenty of tavernas each side of the main road which runs through the town. no noisy night clubs or single sex groups. main beaches mainly clean sand and shallow warm sea. some music blastin out from beach bar at far end to where we settled. first week lovely and calm, second week more wind, sea bit rough for swimming. lovely taverna over looking main beach, poor little cats always after food. didnt bother us, just looking up hopefully.
I have just returned from a lovely weeks holiday in Lassi. I also stayed in Lassi in 2009 at the Lorenzon Hotel but this time chose to stay at the Sea View studios. It was like a little village of bungalows set in beautiful gardens, very well placed for both the main street with restaurants and bars and the beautiful beach with the clearest sea I have ever seen. The studios were immaculate and the bathroom had a proper shower cubicle with a good powerful shower. Just at the back of the studios on the road to the beach there were lots of cats and in particular 3 beautiful little kittens, we had the pleasure of feeding this little bunch every morning and evening!
We had a great time at The Marianna Studios Lassi, in May what a great time we had.
Relaxed resort, mainly for couples.
Just returned home from Lassi, staying at Princess Hotel which was just off the main road, but not so far up the hillsides as some of the apartments we spotted.
Lassi is a beautiful resort with a good choice of restaurants (and I would especially recommend Nefeli's Restaurant for a wornderful choice, excellant friendly service and good prices). The beaches are lovely. You should hire a car to see Kefalonia properly - if you've got a good head for heights! We used CBR for our car hire. Brilliant service, contracts in English and it does exactly what it says on the tin. Nice cars, no hidden extras. They also arranged our excursions. Good prices and good service.
We stayed in Lassi for a week in mid October. Luckily the weather was
mostly fine. Lassi itself as a base is fine, but I'm glad we
hired a car to get about the island. The reosrt has several sandy
beaches and the water was nice even at this time of year. There are
plenty of restaurants and several supermarkets. I expect it gets busy
in high season but it was quiet when we went, ideal for a relaxing
autumn break. Argostoli is not far, we walked there in less than half
an hour, and the taxi back was only 5 euros.
Me and my girlfriend (23 & 21) have just came back from a week in Lassi (13th - 20th Aug) and we loved every minute of it! Lassi has a relatively busy main road but if you get an apartment just off it, it isn't a problem (and handy for flagging taxis!). We stayed up the hill at the Nikos studios which meant it was quiet and we had fantastic views. The nightlife is quite lively, but laid back (no binge drinking and no big same-sex groups out to get wasted!). None of the bar and restaurant staff hassle you to come in to their place (which bugged the life out of me when I was in Crete and Zante!) and you can stroll the main street at your leisure. There is more than enough bars, tavernas and restaurants so that you will not get through them all in one night, and maybe not the week. And there are loads you will just have to go back to (EastWest!). Also Argostoli is a 20 minute walk away, or a 5 minute, 5euro taxi ride away. We went one night to the main square there and the place is buzzing after 10 o clock, full of the locals with their children mixed with the tourists which creates such an amazing atmoshpere, you'd have to witness it to understand what I mean!
Me and my GF (34yr & 25yr) have just returned from a 1 week holiday in Lassi (23rd-30th July) and we loved it. Some folk have said that Lassi is too commercial etc... but we didn't find that. There are in excess of 15-20 restaurants and of the 8 or so we tried we didn't have a bad meal.
Lassi is a great resort which caters for all,ate at 15 restaurants never a poor meal.Breakfast 5 euro for full english and evening meals are around same 5-10 euros.Starters plentiful and full meals not many with chips as jacket spuds is preffered but your choice.Beer 2.5 euros a litre and .Argostoli is a 25 minute walk from Lassi with the seaview all the way up and down the other side.By bus its 1.4 euros 5 mins or 5 euros taxi there from your hotel.One of the safest places to visit.Best sunset ever seen.In Argostoli lovely harbour walk all the way round about 20 mins and Boat to Lixouri every half hour 1.4 euros there,great relaxing place.Yammas
LASSI IS A GREAT RESORT AS IT HAS EVERYTHING YOU COULD POSSIBLY NEED FOR A HOLIDAY. LOTS OF SHOPS AND RESAURANTS AND A FEW BARS. ALSO SHORT DRIVE , TAXI RIDE OR WALK AWAY FROM ARGOSTOLI. GREAT BEACHES AND VIEWS. VERY FRIENDLY KEFALONIANS.
LASSI IS A GREAT PLACE TO STAY WITH 2 FANTASYIC BEACHES, GREAT RESTAURANTS AND NOT TO FAR FROM AGOSTALI THE ISLANDS CAPITAL. BUT PLEASE IF YOU GO TO KEFALONIA HIRE A CAR EVEN FOR A FEW DAYS AND ENJOY THE NATURAL BEAUTY OF THE ISLAND. HAPPY HOLIDAYS. YAMASS
I've been here twice and would recommend this resort to anyone. There are plenty of lovely beaches to choose from, especially Kalamia beach and great choice of restaurants. Although Lassi is considered the busiest resort on Kefalonia don't let that fool you. It has a lovely atmosphere and you won't find any 'lager louts' here. It is just a short walk over the hill into the capital Argostoli where you will find plenty of high quality shops and restaurants and a lovely cosmopolitan atmosphere, particularly around the main square. The Island tour is well worth the trip.
Lassi is a great little place. Two main beaches when you first enter and a few smaller quieter beaches further up by the dolphin supermarket which were very nice. It has a good selection of restaurants, Ionio, Phaedra and Nefeli were our favourites but there was also chinese, italian and fish restaurants. Quite a few supermarkets, car hire places and bars. Trentis bar and Eden are great. Would definitely come back to Lassi.
meant to mention on previous posting that if you self catering-use the lassi supermarket with the Australian brother and sister very friendly and helpful-she really is barking mad(in a nice way)
Just came back this morning from Lassi had a wonderful time-just relaxing on the beautful long beach, lazy lunches, plenty of ale, lovely evenings-this place is heaven for couples,older groups, I would think twice before i took teenagers as there is much for them to do in the evenings-anyone with walking difficulties will struggle too-The temperature was up to 35º.
To Ann ref accommodation.
We have some friends getting married next year - They are staying at the White Rock Hotel, please could you advise any other hotels / apartments close by for other people attending the wedding to stay at. Many thanks
I thought that lassi was a beautiful place although taxi service was strange having to haggle that price, with being tourists they always up the price. The bars are beautifully presented and sitting having a cocktail is bliss!! Beaches were nice with clear seas.
we love lassi! that might explain why we keep going back. we have been there 6 times in 2 years! we stay at simatos apartments, which are lovely! i highly recommend them! The night life is okie, i recommend argostoli more, for the better night clubs and bars but as i say lassi is okie, for a quite drink and dance. Big supermarkets which sell everything, along the main lassi road! and also places to change money up. makris yalios beach, is super! we love it! lovely clear water, and golden sand! i would highly recommend Malibu swimming pool aswell! LOVELY food, Lovely pool and lovely staff! lassi defently the best! hopefully i will be back there next month!
