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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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]
