Lassi is a place built solely for tourists, lets just get that out on the table straight away. But, with that being said, Lassi is still a pretty ideal place to stay if you want to explore Kefalonia. It is also a great place to stay if you like to live close to a great sandy beach.
The beach Makris Gialos is probably why hotels and restaurants started to pop up in the area and why it later became Lassi. The beach is very picturesque and both the sand and the water is clean and lovely. Most hotels in Lassi are situated so that you can walk to the beach in matter of minutes.
You will also have a great starting point for exploring the rest of the island if you are staying in Lassi. You can easly reach both the northern, southern and west parts of Kefalonia from here.
The main road in Lassi is the same road that connects the south of Kefalonia with the northern parts. So traffic can be pretty hevy. Unfortunately most of the taverns in Lassi are located along that same road. And speaking of resturants – they are also here because of the tourists, and many of them have rather low ambitions when it comes to the food they serve. But there are some exceptions, and they are Sto Psito och Sirtaki. Be sure to try these two if your staying in Lassi.
Another upside with Lassi is the village’s proximity to Argostoli, Kefalonia’s capital. You can go to Argostoli from Lassi by taxi or a rented car in just five minutes. In Argostoli you will have a better choice of resturants to choose from. One of the best places to dine in Argostoli is Casa Grec. They have a very cosy courtyard and serve delicious meals.
