Having read the previous comments on these appartments and a week earlier booked a last minute break there I was very worried, and did book a car for the full week. The appartments are lovely. Very clean and spacious for Greece, sheets and towels being changed midweek which I've never come across before. Makis (the manager)is fine, he sets the ground rules if you like, when you arrive and we got on with him OK. The blinds mentioned earlier are large 'shop-type' wind down blinds and he explained to us on arrival that at night the wind can get up off the sea and make them very noisy and also might damage them. Fair enough we made sure the blinds were up before we went out to dinner. We had nice sea view from the balcony that got the sun in the afternoon. Although you are looking over the runway the way trees have been grown it doesn't intrude on the view. The pool area is very nice, and at the rep meeting there is a request to shower before entering, but I didn't see anyone being spoken to if they didn't. Everything mentioned above I guess I can imagine happening, he is very proud of his appartment but if you respect him then he'll respect you.
Although you are literally a stones throw away from the airport I didn't notice any annoying noise and we spent over 4 days just lying by the pool.
The taverna problem is a pain though. I'm glad we booked a car but it did mean I didn't get to drink when we went out. It's probably a good 25 minute walk to the nearest taverna along the beech road past the airport. The road to Lassi although doesn't sound too far for the enegetic, is narrow, twisting and dangerous with the amount of traffic on it. If you're taking kids here, a car is a must.
All in all we had a great holiday. I'm glad I found this website and read the comments before I left, especially about tavernas. Location is what lets the place down a nice taverna or two up the road and I'd go back.
