We are flying out to Kefalonia on Sunday 22/08/04 and staying at Libertos village and would like to know is the hill really bad? Will it be hot out there know?

Beckie F

Can anyone let me know if there are any cash machines in Lassi? Rather than taking currency with me I would prefer to get cash out at a atm and the exchange rate is usually better. Thanks!

Linda W

has anyone been to the silo studios in lassie we cant find any info on them

A unique island because nobody tries to rip you off.We found Lassi a superb place to stay and a good base to explore the island.We stayed at Hotel Lorenzo-absolutely brilliant.A fantastic pool,poolside bar,friendly,hardworking staff and in a beautiful setting.A car is worth hiring to see the island-a must is Myrtos beach,Drogarati cave,Mesalini lake and Fiskardo.There are lots of other lovely coves and beaches as well.Lassi has good restaurants for evening meals.We enjoyed all of them particularly Nefilinis-goodfood,good price,friendly staff.A fantastic Greek island.Go and enjoy it.

We have just got back from staying at the Metaxatos apartments in Lassi, 6-20 June 2004.
The place was great for us as a middle aged parents with child. It was so peacefull, the people were friendly and relaxed. The aprtments were clean and tidy with room service every day. Stunning view from our apartment over the bay to Lixuri town.
The only down-side was the traffic noise. However if you close the double-glazed windows and turn on the aircon (extra charge) all should be well. We all agreed that it was our best holiday ever.

Re car hire

I have prebooked car hire with holiday Autos and used our club card vouchers, If you are a premium card holder you can quadruple the vouchers value therefore for a week in kefalonia in August our hire charge for a medium sized (air con) car is £207 or £52 clubcard vouchers.

Have never been to Kefalonia before and me and my friend looking to go soon. Both of us 'young' 34yr olds, looking to sunbathe thro the day and have a few lively music bars at night going on to the small hours. An added bonus would be lovely greeks to look at!!! Just trying to find out if Lassi would be the best place to go? Or would another resort suit better. Not bothering bout shops or trips etc. Just a nice place that you can chill or party if want.

H S           

Would definately recommend the Metaxatos is Lassi, has pool, has bar, nice rooms. there is a beach a very short walk away, but the nicer beach is about 10 mins in centre of Lassi

Ylona S

I am looking for accommodation in Lassie spesifically near the Platys Gialos Beach.
We will be 2 adults and there has to be a swimming pool with the beach nearby (beach for me pool for the boyfriend ;-) )
I would appreciate all info and contact details of the various hotels/apartments etc. We are not too fussed about clubs etc as long as we are near the beach and everything else is great.

Planning to go in sept.

Jenny C

CAR HIRE - I am travelling to kefalonia at eh end of August and want to hire a car for a week. Please can anyone who has been offer and advice and names of car hire firms locally in Lassi - so that I can contact them for quotes.
Or if anyone has found a cheap carhire company within the UK that they booked for kefalonia before travelling.
We are all so excited about going that we want to see all the island!! :o)
many thanks Jenny

Louisa F           

We have just returned from 2 weeks in Lassi. We both loved it. Lovely beach, fab food, and plenty of things to see and do. This was our first visit to Kefalonia but it will not be our last.

Joanne V           

We have stayed in Lassi for the last two years (in late June & July) and absolutely love it. We are in our mid twenties, and when on holiday want to relax, go for meals out, and generally wind down, and Kefalonia is the perfect place to do that. We have stayed in both a 4 star Hotel (Mediteranee) and a 2 star apartment(Eleftheria), although air con made the heat a lot more bearable, we had fabulous time both years.Lassi is basically one road, where you find the restaurants & bars, all the bars are not plastic chairs at the side of the road, but have lovely gardens, fountains, palm trees, etc, and So Simple bar even has leather sofa's to relax on whilst sipping cocktails! Lassi is a good base for exploring as it has a bit of life for those who don't want a get away from it all holiday, and I only hope that Kefalonia doesn't become commercialised, as it is stunning as it is. The beaches in Lassi are fab, with sand so soft you disappear into it, but you must hire a car explore the rest of the island and find the out of the way coves, and of course Myrtos Beach is a must for all sun worshippers.If anyone would like any further information I would be happy to help.

Peter D           

'Er indoors and I will be going back to Lassi again on June 8 - so we must like it! Those enquiring about the roads should know that many of the coast roads are windy, steep, are bounded on both sides by cliffs(one side going up and the other going a long way down) and have no crash barriers worth talking about. The tarmac surface is probably the same one that the Brits laid down when we were in occupation and in places resembles a mirror with little traction on the surface should you need to brake. After a shower it's like a skid pan. Having said that, the locals are in no hurry and a lot better drivers than some countries I could name. So my advice is take a leaf out of their book and drive at a leisurely pace (taking in the fabulous scenery) especiaslly if it has been raining!

Enjoy your holidays - I know we will.

Amanda P           

We last went to Kefalonia in 1993 and are hoping to go again next year. Can anyone tell me if its altered a great deal or is the beach at Lassi still breathtaking, the towns of fiskado and Assos still quiet and untouched. We will be taking our children too, will they be happy? we were.

Chris J           

Just want to know about roads in Kefalonia - are they all steep drop, hairpin bends round the coast or is that just in the centre?

Chris J           

We have booked to go to Lassi in July2004 and have a car for 7 dats we want to see the island but hate travelling on mountain roads with hairpin bends and steep drops. what are the roads like over there?


Just wondering if any of the bars in Lassi sell Guinness?

Carl S

Joe B

I am staying in bella vista apartments in lassi anyone got any info on the place what the apartments are like how near/far to shops resturaunt all that stuff cheers

Alan R           

Went in September 2003... Over 2 weeks we visited Argostoli, Fiscardo, Agia Efimia, Lixouri, Sami and Skala. Would definately recommend Lassi as a base to stay at for just about anyone.

Best beaches on the island in Lassi, beautiful walks and scenery for the day time.

At least 10 good restraunt / bar / night clubs within 5 minutes walk from each other at night.

Pleanty for any couple or group to do, And if you did get bored, only 25 minute walk / 2 minute drive from Argostoli.

Aould recommend to anyone to stay here

Jackie.t. K           

Lassi was an excellent place to base yourself for a holiday in Kefalonia. I stayed there with 2 of my friends and we were expecting an OAP resort with not much to do but read and get some rays (which was fine by us!) but were pleasantly surprised with the range of bars and restaurants in Lassi and close by in Argostoli.
Our favourite restaurant was Sirtaki - the staff were so lovely. You can also hire a car (I reccommend the Samurai Jeeps!) and explore the island which is easily done from Lassi.
The beaches were lovely - beautiful clear water! Myrtos Beach is stunning.
Go there and enjoy - you'll love it and be very sad when you have to come home. I am going back again!


Drove through Lassi a couple of times and went to the beach one afternoon after being in Argostoli. I couldn’t think of a worse place to stay or go to the beach if I tried. I prefer the quieter resorts and less crowded beaches, so Lassi is totally not my kind of place. The beach was small and crowded; hate to think what it’s like in August (we went at the end of September).

Ruth S           

Lassi is an excellent place for basing yourself to explore the rest of Kefalonia. It's purpose-built for tourists, but having said that I've been to far tackier places, and it's actually quite laid-back as a resort, not many loud nightclubs (if any!) We only made it as far as the Long Beach, but that was more than good enough for us, as it's the quieter end of the beach, plus it was close to the Laguna tavern where we went almost every day for lunch and were never disappointed at the quality of food or the size of the beer (we are devotees of Mythos)!

The best restaurant we went to was the Monte Nero - at the very far end of Lassi, but worth the walk, and when we were there a Greek family was having a function at the same time so we got to see and hear some great Greek dancing and music for free. We also had fantastic red snapper at Da Veronica for only 7 euros (including a starter). Oskar's was a definite experience - haven't laughed so much for ages. Whoever compared it to "Phoenix Nights" was spot on...

As for the rest of the island, we loved Fiskardo, and on the way back we stopped off at Myrtos Beach for a couple of hours (which was OK, but actually not as good as Long Beach in Lassi) However, for a week's holiday we were quite happy to base ourselves in Lassi. We did the 2-hour coastal walk from Lassi to Argostoli, which was nice but quite taxing in the heat, and for the first hour there isn't really anywhere to stop for refreshment, except one hotel by the roadside which was offering free use of their swimming pool. We also took the ferry to Lixouri from Argostoli which is very good value (although there didn't seem to be an awful lot to do in Lixouri itself) We only ate out once in Argostoli (Aenos restaurant, which enticed us in with free wine and after-dinner coffee, and which did delicious crepes and Spaghetti Di Mare) as there was quite a lot of choice in Lassi.

All in all, we had a fantastic time and would definitely go back, and this time go for longer!

Sarah P           

lassie is a large resort offering numerous tavernas and good quality resaurants, beautiful sandy beaches and quality accomodation. people worry that lassie is over touristy and noisy but it isnt at all, it just provides what people want from a holiday. there are no nighclubs so no late night noise or drunken youths to spoil your holiday. The main strip of shops and restaurants comes alive at night and is a very atmospheric place to be. you can walk to Argostolli in about 15 mins where you will find sheek shops and good restaurants arind a lovely town square (try the captins table) We love lassie its a great base for a holiday as everywere is pretty accesable. plus transport times to the ariport and excursions are shorter from here than anywhere eles on the island. (10 mins to the airport) the close proximity to the airport is not a problem as it is tiny and only a few flights a day come in and out which provide little noise polution, in fact i doubt you will notice the planes at all. plus Kefalonia has no night landing facilities so after dusk the airport is silent.

P. A           

We stayed at the Bella Vista just of the main road to Argostoli (from the direction of the airport)
The Lassi supermarket is great as the guy there speaks like a Eastend barra boy and then changes into greek barraboy when he's talking to the other staff - quite disconcerting!!
The local beaches are well kept and cleaned by a patient young lad with a black bin bag and a fishing net clearing up the fag ends and dicarded coke bottles - haven't people heard of bins or taking what they bring away again to dispose of?
Young lads on motorbikes carrying their dogs on the handle bars, no helmets, answering mobile phones and smoking like himnies.....excellent.
Bars like the Aqua Marina that are off the main drag are worth a visit - lovely greek style omlettes and good drinks.
In general, a small town, but better than Fiskardo any day of the week.

Susan M           

Lassi is fantastic. Its got just the right mix of things to do without being too commercial and would probably appeal to all ages. The restaurants are great and the staff really friendly. Don't go to Oscars restaurant unless you like being dragged onto the dancefloor midway through your meal! The walk along the coast to Argostoli is well worth doing. Brilliant scenery and lovely beaches. I will definately be going back.

Shell C           

some freinds are flying to Kefalonia next week and staying at the Lorenzatos in Lassi does anyone have any info, location, etc.

Mike R           

Lassi is definitely the best place to stay with regard to facilities and beaches, and it's also a great base for touring the rest of the island. There are lot's of restaurants, bars, car hire outlets, and 5 or 6 supermarkets where you will find everything you need. In addition Argostoli is a short taxi ride or 3km walk, where you will find the main shopping street on the island (Lithostroto) and many more shops, restaurants, and bars.

Mick/jane/laura/becks/ m           

Lassi was amazing. The shops were fab! The food was great and we made loads of mates. Lovely and welcoming. The beaches were good and we found them good for snorkeling! We'll be back. Phaedras best restuarant.

Shirley W           

I would definately recommend Lassi to everyone because its a great base to explore the Island. The choice of restaurants is brilliant as you can go to a different one each night, Olive Press was our favourite with greek dancing and live music on different nights and as it was a little way from the other restaurants it was quieter (not so many annoying moped noises!). Although Makris Gialos beach is said to be the best beach we prefered Antonio as it was less crowded and the snorkelling oppurtunities were fabulous, saying that beware of the horrible sunbed man as he will charge you even if you are only on the sunbed for literally 10secs. I would recommend to take along your own umbrella and sit on some beach towels(works out alot cheaper). Anyway Lassi is in our opinion the best place to stay on the Island, without a doubt!

Luke G           

Message for K.bulman.I just came back from lassi two weeks ago,there is lots and lots to do lots of beaches,trips to go on.dont worry its not small,but its not san an,ibiza.good place for one or two wks!

Martin L

We're staying at Irini apartments in a couple of weeks. How far is it from bars, town, etc? Is it possible to park our hire car right by the apartments and how near is the "pool use" ? The travel agent knew nothing !! Thanks

Karina B

hi me and my husband are looking for a great resort for kids and teenagers i've got a 17 yr old 15 yr old and 10yr old and i wondered whether anyone knew any good apartments in lassi for october 04 thanks xxxx

Luke G           

lassi is a strip,but it does have great beaches,all bars etc are along main road,if u like quiet resorts avoid,quite hilly in places so check how close you are to the things that are important to you.people were very nice,although people say greece is cheap,i spent the same amount of money as i did in the algarve!

Barry L

We need information about the apartments "Katerina Studios" and particularly about how steep the hill is as you approach them, We are in our 60s but used to hills, however we do like a little tipple and would appreciate any info as to the local geography


lassi is the best! the beaches are all lovely, our favourite was long beach. the resaurants are lovely, especially oskars!!! and the waiters are lovely 2. its very peaceful and not too busy. x x x

Joanne H           

We've just returned from 2 weeks in Lassi, what can I say... the beaches are fantastic (try Antonio beach, a bit quieter than Makris Gialos), bars and restaurants excellent and more than enough of them to keep you busy for 2 weeks, spectacular sunsets. We didn't have a bad meal at all but La Gondola, Monte Nero and Zorbas in particular were excellent. Hire a car if you can, the rest of the island is definitely worth seeing! We're already planning our next trip... One last thing; visit Il Gabbianos cocktail bar (restaurant is fantastic too), Demitri the barman is VERY generous with free shots of Ouzo if you get to know him...

Bill S

Just wondering if anyone knows anything about Terry Studios Apartments....

Dani D           

Hi all,
We've just returned from was so nice! As everybody has said it is the perfect location to visit the rest of the island! I would advise ppl not to hire scooters, because the Greeks on the road are loons! If you cant rent a car (like we couldnt) then your best option is to hire quads (dont need leicense)! Great fun and a lot safer then scooters (they at least have 4 wheels!) Failling that, you can get scooter cars (also dont need leisence)! Bit like Smart cars, but a lot smaller and more fun! There is only 1 place that we knew of that did these (they are very rear) and its a resturant called Nefeli's!
You can use nearly all the pools in Lassi, as far as we knew the only one you couldnt use was the Medditeranian! Malibu was our favourite! The beaches are fabulous and we recomend renting a boat to visit sucluded beaches! You can hire a motor boat from the Makras Gialos beach (long beach), its 25euro for an hr! we only did 2hrs, you need to do more, its well worth the money!
Excursions are a really good idea, beach bbq is really good fun! You go on a boat trip (glass bottom boat) and then go to a beach (usually the red beach) and you all play games and have the bbq! good fun! The trip to Ithaka is also worth a go, its a very beautifull island!
I wont go on about the reasturants, but you should visit them all, there all fantastic! one food that you should all try is the Kefalonian pie (gorgeous)!
If you like coctails then there are 2 places for them! one is De Veronicas (best coctail is the Volcano)! and i cant remember the name of the second but it looks like a forest from the outside (not the one that plays 80s music) and has a balcony looking out to the sea (excellent for sun set), the best coctail in there is the bananna colada!
anyway, i could bable on for ages, but hopefully that helps all you ppl that want help with things to do! if you want more info e-mail me on (put your subtitle as Kefalonia or i wont reply! i get a lot of junk mail so usually delet address's i dont know)!
Have fun
P.S.Agostoli is a 2hr walk along the coastal road (very hard wrk) or 20min up the main road! best to get a taxi there the first time so that you know the easiest way (they always go by the main road)!

Fay W           

We stayed in The Liberatos village. I found Lassi to be the ideal
base to explore all the island. It is a great resort to come back to
after a hard days sight seeing as the majority of the restaurants
and bars are top quality and most have sunset views. The beach
is superb and ideal for families with small children as you can
go quite far out without going out of your depth!
Lassi comes to life at night. The resort is also within walking
distance of the capital Argostolli for great shopping and booking
boat trips. I would definitely go back to Lassi!

Fay W           

To Faye Haigh
Don't worry about your apartments, they are centrally located very
close to the main beach and Malibu pool bar just to the right
about 100yds away.
My favourite restaurants are: 3rd Phaedra— The best Octopuss
salad I have ever tasted!; 2nd— The Ionian (Blue checked
tablecloths) just the best freshly cooked food, no microwaves
here! and finally, 1st— Monte Nero. just pure class, from garlic
and feta butter to the best fillet with Fois grasse. Save this one
for your last night!!!

Rebecca S           

I would just like to know if any of the people complaining about lassi have been there much earlier when there was no "concrete" but just dirt paths along the side of the road which were apartently also part of the road or so the drivers thought! Or whether they know much about the history of the island i mean it was totally flattened only 50 years ago hence it not being as "greek" as some ppl would expect! If u want typical "greek" go to another island or Fiskardo as that survived the earthquake!

Dani D           

Me + my boyfriend are just about to go on Holiday to Lassi. Its our first hoilday together and we were just wondering if anyone has ever stayed at Hotel Irilema? We were told its on the main road, so were a bit worried what its going to be like! Can anyone help us out?
Cheers Dani
P.S. were going on holiday tomorrow!

Faye H

Please can someone help, it will be my first time to Kefalonia ansd I would like to know a bit about the studio I am staying in it called The White & Yellow Houses in Lassi cant seem to find any info on them looked all over also it would be nice if somebody could do a list of all the best restraunts.

Sara P           

Lassi is an ideal resort for 2 weeks holiday. More than enough bars/restaurants to go somewhere different every night - although we did have our favourites after a few nights!

The resort didn't seem that busy, even though it was the middle 2 weeks of July - there's enough space for everyone, even at peak season.

We hired a car for 3 days and had a good look at most places on this beautiful island - Lassi has definitely got the sandiest beaches and is an ideal base with being only 15 minutes from the airport and 5 minutes from Argostoli.

We will definitely go back in the next few years.

Amy K           

i just returned from a 2 week holiday in Lassi,I stayed at the Panorama Appartments. Even though the location had fantastic views from the top of the hill, the hill itself is high but after a fantastic meal the walk back helped!!!! the beach was lovely I really enjoyed the watersports. the rest of the island was lovely,we hire a car to travel around. I will definately return to Kefalonia!

Jackie S           

Having just returned from Lassi after a two week holiday I can`t wait to get back. The beaches were superb and not over crowded at all. There was a selection of restaurants to suit all taste buds and a selection of bars to suit all pockets. I would have liked a few more shops selling pottery etc, but can`t really complain.
Stayed at the Aloni apartments which were really good and clean.

Lisa L           

Hi, just got back from 2 weeks in Lassi. it is by no means tacky or too touristy but there are certainly nicer parts of kefalonia which we disovered by hireing a car. The beaches are beautiful, but there seems to be too many people for the amount of beach space in the height of the season, particually as 90% of the beach is taken up by sunbeads for hire. Lassi is ideal if you want good weather, lazy days and very quiet nights, and the people are very friendly.

Judy F

Hi I have a 16year old daughter and we are goin on holiday on the 20th of july to lassi and i am wondering if any body else has teenage kids goin with them.My daughter is keen to meet new people that she can hang with.can anybody help?


We've just got back from Lassi and had a great time. It has two of the best blue flag beaches only ten minutes walk away and a strip of bars and restaurants to choose from.

It's a short trip into Argostoli from Lassi by car, but be warned, whoever said that the coastal road was a 20 minute walk was lying!! An hour and a half from setting off we arrived with blisters and rumbling tummys, needless to say we got cabs from then on!!

Rob O

im staying at the angelikas studio apartments in august would like a honest opinon but remeber i love greek electical work so electrocution dont bother me i would like a honest opinion on the resort and the apartments as for the hill its one way to sober up!!!!

Trevor M           

A good place if you like it quiet.We do.Excellent if you hate shopping as there are no real shops to speak of - tragic.
Virtually one long road of tavernas and car hire offices.
A very relaxing place to stay or from which to go out and explore, as we did by hiring a 4WD from CBR - who gave us a free upgrade as they were out of the vehicle we wanted.
We stayed at the Lassi hotel for two weeks mid June, walked the coast road to Argostoli, which is a nice walk even if it does take 2 hours!,took the ferry to Lixouri which was only 1.10 euro's each.
We covered all of the island in a few days, found some lovely beaches, although not many with decent sand apart from Xi.

Nia E           

Just come back from 1 week in Lassi. I dont agree with other comments that it was too purpose built. Lassi is a great central location, fantastic food in the restaurants, walking distance to the beaches, and around 1hr max to all other resorts on the island.

Food: They love their garlic, be warned! Lamb is fantastic. Order salad as side dish.

Walking: Be warned. If walking along the coastal road to Arogostoli it will take you over 2hrs (not 40 min as we expected!) Lots of private coaves to go swimming in

Langauge: Make an efort to learn a few Greek terms. The locals will love you for it!

Esther B           

The best thing about Lassi is its location. It has fab beaches and it's near to Argostoli. Apart from that it is a tacky touist resort and not remotely Greek. I didn't rate the restaurants either. The supermarkets are over priced and it lacks atmosphere. Neverthelss, it was a terribly convenient place to stay as far as getting around the island.
The best restaurants were the tiny family run ones found in small villages/towns around the island. The nicest beaches were the quiet ones where the locals went- dotted all along the coast and not charging 12 Euros to hire a parasol! The best atmosphere was in Argostoli with its trendy cafe culture - it was fun to come and watch the Greeks pose and the children play in the central square. Plus the shopping was not bad for such a small island!

Laura A           

My boyfriend and I thoroughly enjoyed a recent 2 week holiday in Lassi. Yes, Lassi is purpose built, but it has the best choice of good eating places, has excellent beaches and is the best place to stay to get around and see what the rest of the island has to offer. We hired a car and pretty much covered the island in 3 days. Make sure you stay in good accomodation if you do stay in Lassi. The hotels and apartments near the main road look awful. We stayed at the San Lorenzo Village and thought it was first class.

J R           

A message for Lisa Lofthouse. Don't let Lassi put you off visiting the Island,
yes I think it's like Blackpool but it is central for exploring the Island. You need
to hire a car then you can just use it for a base. There really are some great
places to visit, get out of Lassi and this is a fantastic Island. We are going back
next year for the third time we love the Island and it's people. Not staying in
Lassi though found somewhere quiet.
e-mail if you want more info.

Daithi O           

Just got back yesterday (June 20th 2003). If you like fast nightlife and cheap drink..Kefalonia is not the place for you. If you want a quite relaxing holiday then this is the place to go. Probably good for kids too. I stayed in the lassi Hotel, Lassi.

Stirtaki / Excellent real Greek food and great cold house white wine.
I recommend for starters: Thaziki. For main course: Lamb Kleftiko. and get the tomato and cucumber salad as a side dish...follow up with house special ice cream. Music on Friday night is perfect with local singers and good crack.

Long Beach. Pass Antonio beach and take the turn at the supermarket near Zorba's Restaurant (Good for Greek dancing but crap for food)
Stay away from "rip off restaurant" at the top of the beach steps where the food is chronic and they will charge you euro1.70 for a can of sprite..probably the dearest in Europe!
Water is CLEAN crystal clear and very safe to swim. Kids on the beach seemed to enjoy it and so did the local Greeks who came spot on 4pm every day with parasols amd mats.
And if yer girlfriend / Wife doesn't mind you watching...beach babes are rare but good.

Over all...very quiet, relaxing, scenic with wild flowers and olive groves abound. The only bad point is the odd mosquito, noisy Yorkshire kids at the pool and beach...why???? Mummy can I this that etc... apart from these minor irritations its good. :) cheers, David, Dublin, Ireland.

Les C           

We (Three Familys, 16 of us in all) will be desending on Lassi in August. The Kids (10 of them) 2x14 yrs, 2x16, 3x18 2x20 & 1x22, are all keen to find the best places to go. The Adults are keen to find the best place to get away from the kids! Can anyone tell us where to go - and Dont say Corfu! Which bars do free drinks on your first visit. How much is a beer anyway? Cocktails?

Shaun T           

Lassi is a good base although man made!

Irene L           

R.E. Lisa Loftus and Catherine Antoniou,
Hi just got back from a week in Lassi. A few negative things that you might like to know:
As Dubliners used to outrageous prices at home, we were HORRIFIED at the price of food in the local supermarkets. Dublin is expensive, but food here was 2 times the price again! Being in the Eurozone, we could compare directly. It's as cheap to eat out, and again that is REALLY expensive compared to other islands (this goes for the whole of Cephalonia). However, there is a LIDL supermarket on the way into Argostoli on the road the local bus takes...didnt go but it's surely cheaper. Lassi has beautiful beaches, but is pretty charmless aside from that. OK if you want to lie on the beach all day, but otherwise, hire a car or get the bus and visit Agia Efimia and Fiskardo etc. Fiskardo outrageous for food (14 euro for an english breakfast!!!) but theres a nice taverna on its own on the high corner of the road going away from the far side of the village where you can relax with a beer and swim off their little jetty (sorry cant remember the name but it's painted blue with blue umbrellas). We had a lovely afternoon there just having a beer somewhere more scenic. Bus service fine but be warned...they leave 10 minutes early when returning to Argostoli!!! We were nearly stranded twice. Argostoli much more atmospheric to have dinner, espec. Captains Table (by the harbour). Wonderful waiters and food. Good place for snacks in Argostoli is the Bell Tower cafe (cheapest we found and nice outdoor seating). If you need more info, let me know!

David E           

Sorry, Best beach should read ANTISAMOS not Antipaxos.

David E           

Best Island we have ever visited. 2 couples with 2 teenage daughters in tow. Scenery is great so hire a car to make the most of it. Beer and food reasonable price and excellent quality. Mainly English, especially in Lassi. Make sure you visit Antipaxos beach jsut outside Sami and Myrtos on the North West coast.

Louise W           

Me & my boyfriend have just come back from Lassi. I thought it was a lovely resort with beautiful views out over towards Lixouri. Argostoli is lovely to walk into and is again very scenic. We would recommend La Gondola in the square, pricey but good food etc. I think some other islands waiters etc may make more of a fuss of you as we only got a free shot of Brandy in the Trata, and nowhere else!

As for the guide price list on the lassi homepage, what a joke, double those figures and you're getting close to how expensive everything is. I found it to be the same or more expensive than the UK. Thats my only major complaint, so bring twice the amount of money than you think.

Myself, my fiance and our friends are planning a trip to the Stefanos studios in Lassi at the end of July 03. Am interested in any comments about Lassi and these studios. Does anyone knows which end of lassi theses studios are at? Have been to Greece before so know what to expect re the basic studios etc. Thanks.

LISA LOFTHOUSE LISTEN UP! Lassi is beautiful, most of the restaurants are friendly and the shops owners lovely. Beaches are great. It is very very very quiet though. Great if you have a family so back in the appartment bu 10pm like we were, but not on the good side if your a single/young couple on your own. Don't worry you'll have a good holiday, just a quiet one. You will need to hire a car though to get around to other resorts BUT PLEASE DO NOT HIRE ONE FROM CBR - OUR BRAKES WENT & THE DENIED RESPONSIBILTY! Nightmare. Set your mind at rest and enjoy your holiday.

Having visited all of the resorts on the island on a 2 week holiday,this was without a doubt the least appealing for charm and most expensive for shopping. The beaches "looked" nice, but were small and crowded compared to the many excellent beaches to be found on the island. Can't comment on the nightlife because we didnt stay around long enough to find out.
