Metaxatos Apartments is ideally located on the outskirts of Lassi, making it very close to walk into Lassi, to the beaches, or to Argostoli.

Lassi has many very good restaurants, bars and mini markets, catering to all of your holiday needs. There are also at least 6 excellent quality beaches in Lassi, all within walking distance. They all have beach bars and sunbeds with umbrellas for hire.

Argostoli is the capital of Kefalonia, and has all of the facilities you would expect of an island capital. There are two ways to get there – either a 20 minute walk down the hill, which is just up the road from our top entrance, or the scenic coastal route. This is a 6km long road into Argostoli.

 

 

 

About Lassi resort
Lassi is the main holiday resort on the island and nearest to the capital, Argostoli.
Its good hotels, apartments & studios; plentiful restaurants, tavernas & bars and beautiful sandy beaches make it very popular with the tourists. Its central location on the island makes it an ideal starting place for exploring Kefalonia.
Lassi itself, however, has many places of interest. The small chapel and cave of Agios Gerasimos, the patron Saint of the island, who lived here as a hermit for six years, is situated uphill off the main street.

The scenic Fanari coastal road to Argostoli starts in Lassi and provides beautiful views & small secluded bays. From here you can take a short cut over the hill into Argostoli, passing the two little churches of Agios Gerasimos and Agios Thanasis on the way.

At the top you will have a panoramic view of the bay, Argostoli, Lixouri, Vardiani Island (Rabbit Island) and the whole of Lassi.

The ridged footpath to the left brings you to the Italian Monument.Along the coastal road you will see the lovely St. Theodoros lighthouse and the Katavothres water wheel with its strange phenomenon.

You will pass the area which is dedicated to the memory of the Italian soldiers and officers who served on the island in World War II. A plaque marks the grave of 136 men of the Acqui Division who were executed here by the Germans in September 1943. The Italian Memorial Monument is signposted up the hill from here.

This walk from Lassi to Argostoli will give you lots to see and lots to think about, and in the evening offers the best sunsets on the island.
No wonder many tourists return to Lassi year after year.
