We stayed in Sea View Village and were very lucky as we did actually have a sea view! The apartment was quite spacious and was located in a quiet area yet close to the beach and restaurants. Beach Antonio which was just by the hotel Meditteranae and was our favourite beach because it was great for snorkelling, luckily its the closest to the apartments anyway. You will need a torch for the evening as the roads between Lassi's main strip and the apartment are uneven and not lit. We had an amazing time and if you are staying at Sea View Village I'm sure you will too.
Although it was quite busy in August, I personally found it a lovely time of year to visit the Island. We went from the 21st to the 28th and the weather wasn't overly hot, about 30 degrees. We come on holiday for some warmth anyway so for us that was a lovely temperature as we could explore the Island without being too hot, but sunbathe and get a tan if we wanted.
From the moment we landed in Kefalonia the tour rep, Helen was there on hand to help. Whenever we had a problem or question she was always there to adhere. I thought of her more as a friend than someone who was getting paid to look after us.
The actual village is ok, with a couple of nice gift shops, but I wouldn't recommend hiring a boat from Jonny at the hotel as the seas can get very rough. Considering we had never been on a motor boat before let alone driven one I didn't feel that he explained how to use the boat very well. At one little cove we went to we jumped off the boat and did some snorkelling which was nice, but trying to get back on was a drama as the steps he had proivided were broken. On the way to the harbour we had to strap ourselves into our lifejackets as we thought the boat was going to tip right over, we were vertially saying our last goodbyes.
What else can I say but pure charm!
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!
