Lassi is one of the more popular resorts on the island.
It is a summer resort, in the winter this popular destination all but goes to sleep. We have visited Lassi many times over the years and never tire of it. The resort is home to some wonderful tavernas a hand full of bars and several supermarkets along with quite a few quirky souvenir shops. Due to it's Southern location on the island it is home to some fabulous sandy beaches, one of the more well known being Makris Gialos.
Makris Gialos i quite a large beach with a taverna/beach bar, it's very own watersports and plenty of sun loungers to go around. The beach does get busy, especially on weekends but what could you expect, it is Kefalonia after all. The sea is a dazzling crystal clear turquoise and stays relatively shallow for quite a way out. Our children have had some of the best beach days at Makris Gialos, playing in the soft clean sand and swimming in its warm waters.
Another plus side about Lassi for us is the close proximity to the airport, not too close though. From putting your cases in the (hire car) or taxi you can arrive at your accommodation in little more than 10 minutes. We have hired a car many times straight from the airport and even on our first time diving was a breeze.
Holiday accommodation in Lassi is either on the same level as the main resort strip or up "the hill".
We have stayed in accommodation up at the top of the hill in Lassi quite a few times now and while the walk up the hill can be difficult for anyone that has walking difficulties the views out over Lassi and towards Lixouri as the sun sets are well worth it. When we walk down the hill into Lassi for our evening meal the walk is always very enjoyable. If you don't feel like the walk back up on a night time then a €5 taxi ride will get you and your shopping back home.
If you choose your accommodation up the hill then Argostoli awaits you down the other side after a 15-20 minute walk. We have, on many occasions strolled down into Argostoli with our children and had our evening meal and then soaked up the bustling evening atmosphere of the capital.
For those that are active and enjoy a long walk then you can take the coast road from Lassi into Argostoli where you will pass right by (St Theodores lighthouse), this walk which passes some lovely coves and beaches takes roughly 1 hour.
Wherever you choose to stay in Lassi we're sure you won't be disappointed.
