Fantastic 2 weeks at these apartments !!!
the garden at villa Angelos is beautiful.These studios are situated up a very small hill,but the five minute walk is worth it as you will be well away from the busy road.Owners Poppy and Raymondo are vey friendly and helpful.
Just returned from a 14 night stay at the Villa Angelos which I enjoyed very much. The accomodation is very 'Greek' and as you might expect fairly basic, although are room had a very large fridge (which was definatley needed, to combat the heat), 2 electric hobs, and an air conditioning unit. No real shower as such, it's a drain on the centre of the bathroom floor with a shower fitting coming from the taps. Air conditioning was 6 Euro per day and although quite expensive, it made our stay a great deal more comfortable as it was very hot. Fan hire was 12 Euro a week, and saftey deposit use was 10 Euros per week. You could have the use of the room until departure for an extra 15 Euro. We had a room on the upper floor which had a very impressive view of the sea and looked onto Xi beach/Lixouri area. Appartments are up a very steep hill, and it's another step hill again to Gradikai (and all the other) beaches, so if you don't like hills, avoid Lassi. The room only has 1 spare plug point, so if you want to use a fan at night you may have to unplug your fridge, etc.. to use it and a mosquito adapter, alternatively by a tripple adapter there which most supermarkets stock. Room was cleaned regularly, and I have no complaints. The owners spoke little english (more than my greek) but were really nice and seemed to want to make you welcome. Two supermarkets just down the hill and about a 10 minute walk to the nearest beach (Gradiaki) which has sunbeds, umbrellas, food/drink cafe. I will try and post some photos up of the apartments and Lassi/Kefalonia as we hired a car for a few days from CBR (125 Euro for a Punto) went all of the island on 30 Euro of fuel.
Just arrived back from 2 weeks at villa angelos. apartments basic but we were on the front on the first floor the view was fantastic. the rooms were clean. The owners Poppy and Panos. spoke little English but were very friendly, they had there own veg gardens when we showed interest we were given tomatoes etc. we were told to help our selves to lemons, apricots and peaches. which were growing around .the apartments were up asteep hill but only took about 5 mins to walk to. the only thing was some evenings we could here music till 3am. not sure were it came from. we did not close the balcony windows just the new shutters at night so we had agood airflow around the room.
We stayed in the Villa Angelos in August 2003 and it was very clean, linen changed every other day, bins emptied every day etc. The location is very good although up quite a steep hill, so I wouldn't recommend this place for people who struggle with walking. A beautiful beach is just down the hill, but I would advise you get there early otherwise there won't be any room for you. I would strongly recommend getting a car for a day or two to see some of the beautiful island.
I am going to Lassi and staying in the Villa Angelos this August and if anyone could send me some information on Lassi in general especially the Villa Angelos I would really appreciate it!

We stayed in October. Although it's up a steep hill (my legs developed new muscles) the views from the balcony were well worth it. Clean & tidy accomodation. I tried to book again for May 2003 but wasn't quick enough!!!!
Basic but very clean. Up a steep hill but this is worth it when you see the brilliant views. Definately would stay there again.
