We recently stayed in the Irini apartments in Lassi, Kefalonia, Greece (June 2008) We booked this through the travel channel on Sky and got a really good deal. I then went to research Lassi itself and also the Irini apartments. I went to my local library and took out The Lonley Planet plus other guide books on Greece. All of them did not rate Lassi and the Irini apartments which I looked up on the internet had really bad reviews. We were now not so excited about our week away and was preparing for a week of hell!
The transfer time from the airport to the Irini apartments in Lassi was only 10/15mins which was great. Our guide said the apartments were really nice and we were very puzzled after doing our research. To our surprise she was right, they had been completely refurbished and it was like entering a brand new apartment, new kitchen, bathroom, very clean, it was great and I would definitely reccomend staying here. We were so so relieved that I really felt strongly about writing this review for anyone else who was thinking of staying here. We were told that it was a very steep hill to walk up to, but it was not a hill, more of a slope and the coach took us very close to the entrance which was good.
Lassi itself is a great little place, lots of restaurants a couple of late bars, so something for everyone. We hired a car and visited most of the island and we were still happy that we were staying in Lassi. All the apartments had a little balcony and the view was lovely, overlooking the bay and it felt like we were quite high up even though it was only a 5mins walk into Lassi. I hope this will help anyone trying to decide to stay here. The books I read were obviously out of date and sometimes it doesn't pay to read old reviews on the internet.
