Marinos Apartments - (Accommodation in Lassi)

Lee S

Just sadly come back from the Fabulous Marinos Apartments.
A great place for a family holiday, Marinos and his staff are fantastic and will do anything for you.
The accommadation is very clean and we found it ideal as a base for our family holiday. We were initially worried with a balcony as we have a young girl but this was no problem at all as they were very safe. The location is fantastic as it is just on the outskirts of the main street and directly opposite one of the best beaches on the island. The Princess Hotel next door openly welcomes you to use their excellent facilities and their pool is great.
Places we visited
Makris Gialos Beach~Sandy and very Child Friendly (CF) just accross the road
Platis Gialos Beach~Sandy and (CF) walking distance
Avithos Beach~Sandy and quiet (CF) a short drive just past airport
Karminia Beach~Sandy and shallow waters ideal for young children, nice drive just past Lourdata
Myrtos Beach~Pebbly and not at all child friendly. Great view from top and beautiful.
Antisamos Beach (captain correllis beach)~Beautiful pebbly beach (CF) a great drive over the mountains lots of mountain goats about and great views.
Assos Fishing Village~The most BEAUTIFUL PLACE IN KEFALONIA.............
Fiskardo fishing village~Another beautiful place a long but worthwhile drive.
Xi Beach (Lixouri)~Red sandy beach (CF) not very pretty nice drive there and take the very cheap ferry from Argostoli, it has great views. 
Lixouri~Nice spot for lunch in the outdoor Tavernas in the square 
Sami~Nice little port with waterside tavernas.
Poros~Nice spot for lunch with waterside tavernas
Mellasani Lake Cave~Beautiful and well worth the small admission charge
Argostoli~See the lighthouse and walk over the Drapano bridge. Lots of shops if you like that sort of thing (yuck). The cashpoints are here, none in Lassi. Cost about 5 Euros by Taxi or takes about 20-30 minutes from Lassi.
A nice little place with plenty of Bars and Tavernas. By far the best place to eat is MYSTIC GUSTO near the 2 supermarkets, they have great food and great entertainment with Greek singing and dancing (fire dance and plate smashing) The staff are great and very friendly, our little girl was entertained and usually given free ice-creams with sparklers in. There is a small little play park mid way in Lassi.
The supermarkets are well stocked with all your needs.
