San Lorenzo Village - (Accommodation in Lassi)

Jane T           

Have to admit I was disappointed given all the rave reviews here. Yes the staff and grounds were fantastic, but during our 2 week stay we lost, at various times, water and electricity. The pool was taken over by kids, who frankly should have been at school, and who made lots of noise in their rooms late at night. The self catering facillities were minimal and the apartment was TINY. I knew it'd be small, but not that small! The 'kitchen' and bathroom combined were around the same size as the average hotel bathroom.

It does have its good points though:
We hired towels for the duration save taking our own to the beach. 10 euro returnable deposit. You can order groceries for collection from reception save you carrying them up The Hill. They supply a welcome pack of sweets, fruit and washing up liquid on arrival. Mind you dont drinnk the latter though!! Films are shown daily for kids and adults. Good place to take small kids as there are all sorts of toys to play with in the paddling pool. Bigger kids seemed to enjoy the stock of inflatables in the big pool.
 
Lassi was a good base and we were spoiled for choice in restaurants. Best meal was at Monte Nero at the far end of the road towards Argostoli.
 
Local amenities were good, ie supermarkets selling recognised brands. English newspapers are not hard to get.
 
Beach Club area of the Long Beach was great, with a decent cafe, plus beds and umbrellas at the going rate of  8 euros. Fab! There's more space between beds here than there was further along the beach towards the main water sports area. We found it pretty peaceful too.
 
I'd go again, but only for 1 week - and I'd take some earplugs for night times!
 
Have  a great time there yourselves
