My two weeks in Kefalonia are drawing to an end..and I can say that I am very sad to be leaving such a beautiful island, with such wonderful people.
In our first week here we stuck to the beaches and the swimming pool, but in the second we hired a car for four days.
We decided to discover Lassi further afield and headed along Fanari Road towards Argostoli.
Along this road there are many sites to see, the first being the lighthouse. It is a beautiful piece of architecture set on an idyllic peninsula. Also around the lighthouse you can do some snorkelling as the water is so clear and clean.
The next site along Fanari Road is the Waterwheel and the ‘Swallow hole’ which are worth seeing.
The final tourist site is the war memorial dedicated to the Italian soldiers massacred in WW2.
Not many reps seem to encourage you to go along Fanari road, but I think that it is definitely worth taking the time to discover the many sites that are along the way.
There are also many beaches that should be visited, a great selection that should satisfy all needs. There are quiet beaches, or more crowded ones…but all have extremely breathtakingly clear water. Some examples of these beaches are Kalamia, Gradakia, Mediterranee, Paliostafida (Antonio), Makris Yialos, Platis Yialos and Turkopodaro.
I first came to Kefalonia this year after 5 years of travelling Greek Islands each year and I have to say Kefalonia is my favourite by far. I stayed in Lassi’s Grand View apartments and found them delightful to stay in.
My husband and I found the island beautiful to stay in the views from where we stayed were amazing each and everyday.
Overall we found our 2 weeks here to be the best we have had in the whole of our trips to Greece and we will definatly be returning to Kefalonia again in the near future. I must agree with the 2 comments below that the manager of the apartments is very pleasant and made us feel most welcome.
I reccommend Kefalonia to all people who like new experiances in different places. The country is perfect.
This is my third time to Kefalonia and I have to say I love it. This is the second time I have stayed in Grand View. I must say the apartaments are amazing and the views are absolutely breath-taking. The service is fantastic thanks to the manager.
I agree with Peter with the comments made about India. She is a vile sight and absolutely manipulative. Like Peter, she basically forced us to write nice things about her in a questionaire in order for her to look good. Also, she cunningly got us to hire a car from CBR. The car was atrocious!
We found her a complete sham of a tour rep. We cannot believe someone would treat their customers with such disrespect for them and their money.
I have been to Kefalonia many times. We stayed this year at Grand View, which I must say these apartments are very good and have an amazing panoramic view. I thank the manager for the great service and I hope next year my accommodation will be with you.
However, I am very dissappointed with my rep, India. That face and cunning smile made me sick to my stomach. She gave us a questionnaire and asked us not to write any negative comments about her. She forced us in a sly way to rent a car for CBR. The service was foul, the brakes were out of order and the tyres about to fall off. The price was astronomical for such a crappy car. A friend rented a car with much better prices and service.
India is a sly and manipulative woman who cannot be trusted with tourists and their money. She has no respect for other people and only thinks of herself.
My friend Jax and I have been coming to Kefalonia for many years now. We always stay at Oskars Apartments because they are luxurious compared to most in Greece. We have air con, tele, electric kettle and a shower curtain. We have a lovely panpramic view, fresh towels and sheets as often as required. We are part of the family. Mamma Rosa is our Greek mum and Papa Andreas is out Greek dad (also the Greek Tommy Cooper.) He is wild, crazy and fun to be with. Both Mamma and Pappa and the ‘boys’ have been very good hearts. they are my Greek family for over 10 years and I feel very loved and looked after whenever I come here. I hate going home to normality, my heart is in Greece. I think and believe I was a Greek in a past life. When I arrive in Kefalonia, in Oskars, I feel like I have come home to my Greek family. They are SOOO warm and welcoming. Mamma and Papa are the best. We have so much fun in the resturant and the food is excellent. As is the dancing and the waiters. We will forever be coming back to see our Greek family forever.
All our love Vicki & Jax xxxxx
Oskars is fantastic. The view looking over the balcony from Oskars is beautiful because you can see the sea. Not only is it the view that makes Oskars attractive, but the atmosphere in the restaurant makes you feel right at home. The waiters are all very friendly and make you feel more than welcome into the family. The dancing throughout the night keeps you entertained and you know there is always something to do once you have finished eating. The food at Oskars is simply devine and very well priced. Even though it is not on the Lassi strip with most restaurants, at Oskars you will find the best night in Kefalonia. Located down the Fanari Road it is a short walk from Lassi itself. The walk is beautiful and worth doing.
All in all Oskars is the place to be in Kefalonia.
If only we had known about Oscars before the last night of our holidays. Best meal of the whole holiday and the staff are the friendliest you could hope for. Entertainment was also superb – be prepared to burn up a few calories.
Andreas works hard to market the restaurant so please do not be put off if he comes up to you on the beach and thrusts a leaflet in your face which advertises Oscars – this is their main means of marketing.
Truely excellent – the highlight of the holiday.
We have been coming to Kefalonia for 4 years and discovered Oskars in our second year, we were very impressed with accommodation and the family.
Andreas, Rosa, Costas, Mickos work very longs hours making sure that the business us running too high stadard. Oskars has been the nearest to our own home so we never feel homesick, the food has been excellent, we have eaten in many restaurants on the island but still food that Oskars has the edge on consistant good food. once you discover Oskars I am sure you will not book for any other place to stay. They are such a nice family we will keep in touch, even if we do not come back every year. Good luck to you all with best wishes for the future.

I have been here all night dancing and had a superb night.The show was superb and OSKAR was in top form. 10 points out of 10 for me. If it was for OSKARS i would have had many BORING nights in Lassi.
To all Swedens that come here have a great night.
