October - (Best Time to Visit Kefalonia)

Kev S           

Brilliant! We were lucky with the weather - although there was a ferocious storm one night, when the sun came out it was gorgeous. The island was quiet with very few tourists, and that made it more relaxing. Would recommend it as a place to relax off season.Many good restaurants and such freindly people. My family all loved it.

Bellavista Apartments - (Accommodation in Lassi)

Kev S           

Maybe the cooking facilities are a little basic[but we ate out every night]. Maybe the shower is a bit temperamental. But the beds are comfortable and the views from the balcony are wonderful. Thoroughly enjoyed staying at the aptly named Bella Vista. We had a 2 bedroom apartment - one double bed for us parents, and 2 singles for the teenagers. The pool was a bit cold but it is October after all. Not far from the main street in Lassi, five minutes from the beach, and close to supermarkets and eating places.

Myrtos Beach - (Beaches on Kefalonia)

Kev S           

If you go to Kefalonia, you must visit Myrtos. The view from the main Fiskardo road is amazing. The winding road down to the beach looks daunting, with numerous hairpin bends, but its worth it. One of the highlights of an unforgettable holiday. The water is so clear and the beach was deserted last week. Superb.

La Gondola Restaurant - (Restaurants in Argostoli)

Kev S           

We went to Argostoli twice and both times ate at La Gondola. The food was outstanding, particuarly fine pasta - well it is an Italian restaurant. The service was a bit slow but that suited us. On our  2nd visit, on Saturday night, the square was buzzing with people and quite atmospheric. Highly recommended.

St Georges Castle - (Places to Visit on Kefalonia)

Kev S           

We hadnt intended to go here, but the weather turned dull. I'm glad, because we would have missed a real gem. The ruined castle is approached on a concrete road that had my wife feeling nauseous, but the views are breathtaking. The cafe called The Castle is run by a lovely Greek guy and his English wife. We only had drinks but the food looked delicious. Worth a visit if you get sick of the beach.

Monte Nero - (Restaurants in Lassi)

Kev S           

On a wet and windy night we dodged into the first restaurant that caem our way, which just happened to be Monte Nero. It was our best meal in Lassi, by far. The whole place is rather smart, with proper napkins, and so on. The access to the loos was through the kitchen and the smells were rather enticing[the food that is]. Veal with mushrooms in orange sauce was very good; Coq au vin also; lamb in a flower pot [thats what they called it on the menu!] also very good. It took ages to order because the menu was so extensive. Prices on the high side but good value in my book. Its always good to see locals dining in a restaurant, and there were quite a few here.

Premier Restaurant - (Restaurants in Argostoli)

Kev S           

Nice place to sit outside on  a hot day and have a relaxing drink and a yummy cake. Its right on the main square and perfect to sit and watch the world go by.

Lassi Resort - (Resorts on Kefalonia)

Kev S           

We stayed in Lassi for a week in mid October. Luckily the weather was mostly fine.  Lassi itself as a base is fine, but I'm glad we hired a car to get about the island. The reosrt has several sandy beaches and the water was nice even at this time of year. There are plenty of restaurants and several supermarkets. I expect it gets busy in high season but it was quiet when we went, ideal for a relaxing autumn break. Argostoli is not far, we walked there in less than half an hour, and the taxi back was only 5 euros.

Argostoli - (Resorts on Kefalonia)

Kev S           

We were staying in Lassi, but Argostoli is within walking distance.It's easily the biggest town on the island. Thee is a nice pedestrian shopping street called Lithostoto, which also opens some evenings. Plenty of bars and restaurants around the main square, which was lively at night time. Parking was easy but possibly not in the summer. Well worth a visit if you are staying on Kefalonia. [also recommend Premier and La Gondola restaurants]
