Liberatos Village - (Accommodation in Lassi)

Scott P           

We arrived at the Liberatos Village and were taken by George the owner to a room in the newer apartments furthest away from the pool, initially we were both really disappointed with the standard of accomodation in this particular room. It seemed really small and the light in the bathroom had been smashed and not replaced. So our first impressions weren't too good but we knew that we wouldn't be spending much time in the apartment and got the holiday at a bargain price booking it idependantly.

We were then moved to a different apartment due to a mix up with Thomas Cook and couldn't believe how lucky we were to have ended up in the first apartment block next to the pool with a stunning uniterupted sea view. The apartment itself was really spacious and clean. I would only rate it as average because the bathroom was in need of a total referb, towels and bedding were only replaced a few times during our stay and the apartments didn't have air con.

Lassi itself was a great resort with beautiful beaches, loads of good restaurants to choose from and was pretty cheap. The hill up to the apartments was no problem for us but as mentioned before would be really difficult for someone with walking difficulties or the elderly.

I would definately recommend hiring a car/jeep as there are loads of others resorts and places of interest to visit. We visited as many places as we could in the 3 days we had the jeep. Fiskardo, Sami, Loudras, Lixouri, Scala and Ithaki as well as Myrtos beach are all worth visiting. Myrtos beach was amazing when we visited with 8ft high waves, too dangerous for swimming but an amazing experience.

Argostoli was my favourite place with a lot of bars and restaurants to choose from, a great place. We went there 3 nights and only costs 5 euros in a taxi to get back to the apartments. You can walk into Argostoli but beacuse the taxis were so cheap it isn't really worth walking in and the pavements are non existent in places, can be a bit dodgy with the greek drivers, some of them are pretty crazy.

We would definately visit Kefalonia again in a few years but won't be staying at the Liberatos Village, there is much better accomodation on offer.
