Just back from holiday in Polymnia Apartment, it is a beautiful apartment with stunning views on a beautiful island and the people could not be more friendly. We would definately recommend it to anyone.
we're just back again from lassi,polymnia does it again for us(myself husband and 18 year old daughter).
we have been out 3 times and this was the best yet,we had brilliant company all the all time we were there(vicky,pat!!! you know who you are)and bill and missis and the others that now live on the island...
We stayed in apartment no. 3 (ground floor) and it was brilliant. After reading the previous bad comments we were concerned, but had no need to be (our bathroom window did not fly open!). The location is great, just a short walk away from the town. The apartments are very quiet and modern compared to some greek accomodation, we even had a proper kettle! The people in Kefalonia are very friendly, we thoroughly enjoyed our holiday.
Stayed here June/July 2003. Nice apartments in a lovely setting. Would hve liked to have been on the next floor up to get a better view of the bay but the added bonus of the bottom floor was a larger sun terrace. No sign of a rep all week, not that that bothered us. The use of the Sissi Apartment pool next door was a bonus and is a nice large pool area with bar. Short walk down the lane to the main road of the resort. You can also take the road down which will take a bit longer.
So you are actually complaining when really they are exactly as advertised! 2 Star apartments where they have a mixture of studios for 2-3 people and apartments for 4-5. Check the brochure. As to a party of 3 never being in the apartments, wrong again! As with most self catering studios/apartments you can PAY underoccupancy charges to have a bigger apartment, as I have done. I could have been in a studio with my party of three but wanted more space so paid for it. If I had been on the ground floor, it would not have been a problem either and I would have kept the door locked and window shut if people could see in. Seems unfair to blame the accomodation?? Maid service everyday. As with most accomodation on the island this means a quick sweep and empty the buckets. Linen is usually changed midweek. This is not unique to Polymnia. I have spent ten weeks in Lassi in total and have been in every supermarket. To say the Dolphin charges three times as much is just garbage. Your use of language is unecessary and perhaps next year you should PAY for 5 star accomodation in Spain as that is clearly what you want.
Hi we stayed at the Polymnia apartments last year and had a great time. The views are amazing and the standards are very high. there is loads to do in Lassi and we found a couple of hotels and Bars that let you use their Pools for free.We are hoping to go back there in September and can't wait.
Hi, Me and some friends are visiting Lassi on July 17th, has anyone got any tips for 4-5 students looking to have a good two weeks? Also is everything accessable within walking distance? If not is there good transport? Any help anyone could give would be greatly received, Steve
Just returned from 2 wonderful weeks in Kefalonia staying at the Polymnia apartments. We had apartment 1 which is very large compared to all the other Greek Islands we have been to. This was our second visit to Lassi and my only concern is now there seems to be on regular occasions very noisy motorbikes apparently racing up and down the main road at 3 or 4 in the morning.
ANYBODY GOING OUT TO KEFALOINA JULY 13TH??
GOING BACK TO POLYMNIA APTS AGAIN
THE BEST HOILDAY WE'VE HAD IN YEARS
DONT LISTEN TO WHAT THEY SAY ABOUT LASSI,IF YOU'VE BEEN TO SPAIN YOU'RE ON A WINNER
THESE APTS ARE SOUND,GOOD TIMES!!!
Sara, We are returning to the Polymnia again this year. I think all bookings are via "First Choice" (Page 68 of their latest guide)
We would liketo visit the Polymnia apartments as per the comments on the web site ie. short walk to the shops, nice pool, big balcony, very large apartment. How can we visit these apartments?
Stayed 23/09 - 07/10 and recommend this accommodation 100% even though I have provided some constructive critisism. I visited Lassi 2 years ago with mum and this time was looking forward to sharing it with my boyfriend. We couldn't get the place I stayed with mum but were not disappointed by Apartment No.2, It is big, (2 bedrooms, 1 with double bed, 1 with twin beds). My only gripes are: - the bath was tiny and we had to use that as the shower wasn't powerful enough and the showerhead needs sorting as water came out horizontaly as well as vertically. They could also do with better cleaners (something resembling tomato ketchup on the kitchen floor when we arrived, was still there when we left. Finally I never realised toilet rolls were like gold dust, after the initial one ran out, we were never given any more and had to buy our own. Saying that, we both agreed we would definitely stay here again.
Read the web page before we went and were not disappointed. Pparty of 5 inc 2 children under 5. Had Apartment 2 which by experience of Greek Appartments was massive!, and very comfortable. The main balcony (size approx 10ft x 30ft) gave shade against the blistering sun for most of the day,a welcome relief especially with the small children. The Apartment was quietly located but near enough to walk to the shops and tavernas. One hint for future holidaymakers with small children is that, all the tavernas in Lassi did take-aways. This gave us the oportunity to feed the children earlier, put them to bed, then relax with Greek Cuisine on our own balcony.
Don't really want to recommend the appartment in case it is not available for us next time!
we had the whole of the second floor to ourselfs which is apartment no2 biggest apt we have ever had the veiw's are breathtaking and we had 4 balconeys 1 for each of us. you definatly need a car which we did and seen most of the island, which is lovely beaches around got a bit crowded, we found a really nice one at Avithos about 2 kilometers the other side of the airport, it was never packed always spare sunbeds and a beach bar there. the food was good. the only thing it lacked was a bar for everybody to get together at night.
When the coach driver dropped us off at the BOTTOM of the hill, in the midday heat, loaded down with suitcases, saying he couldnít drive us up the hill, my heart sank. However, the rep organised a taxi to get us to our apartments and our holiday began. My husband and I, mother and 17 yr old niece stayed in Apartment No 1, and what an apartment it was. It was fabulous. We have been to several Greek islands in the past and the accommodation has varied greatly, but this was definitely the best. We had a very large balcony, which looked out onto tremendous views across the bay and out to sea. On entering the apartment, we found a spacious living area and kitchen, which were separated by a good sized breakfast bar. The kitchen was very well equipment, plenty of pots, pans, cutlery and crockery and a huge fridge. Everything was spotless. There was a lovely bathroom and the bedrooms were spacious with very comfortable beds and soooooo much wardrobe space. As well as the main balcony, the living room and both bedrooms had there own balconies too. As for the walk into Lassi, we found a short cut footpath, so it was only a 5min walk. The pool was lovely, clean and peaceful. Bravo Polymnia Apartments, canít wait to come back.
Polymnia Apartments were interesting.. a little 'retro'! A short walk from all of the amenities and clean and comfortable. Access to neighbouring pool is permitted, although the beaches are excellent, if a little crowded at times. Definitely hire a car and explore the island, there's more to see than lassi and the views are breathtaking.
Restaurants and bars are getting a little pricey, which is not unusual. Visit Argostoli one evening for excellent dining and a relaxing feel
had a brill hoilday in kefalonia,polymnia was great not far from anything,very clean,maid was lovely.
we hired a car and did the island,beautiful is not the word!!
visit the ionio taverna,food lovely,and the staff were great,they made our hoilday
going again asap,cant wait,felt as if i was born there!!!!!
Hi there,we are going to the polymina apartments on the 10th june for a week would like some tips on the apartments, or just to say hi to anyone going the same time.
really impressed by these apartments - quiet and beautiful when the sun sets. More of a place for couples than families. The hill up to the apartments is nothing- good exercise and guarantees privacy. Going again this year...
sorry put comments in wrong place
lovely apartments,3rd time in Kefalonia but definately best place we have stayed.lovely view and quiet location.dont worry about the hill it is only very slight.Visit PANOS at the "Preview Bar" down the bottom of the hill ,he is a really nice bloke ,speaks good english,food great and you can use the pool for free.(p.s. dont feed the cats it makes the rep even more miserable) quick tip......dont rep the car of the rep,a bit to pricy....go and see the bloke in Palem car hire (hes from Swindon and her will do you agood deal)
can anyone give any more information about the polymnia apartments and the location as we are going with 2 children 8&14 july 2003 thanks
just got back. excellent apart from the 4 days of rain. no wonder it's a green island, next time i'm booking up a brown one! Only joking, everyone told us it was out of the ordinary. Great place, hired a jeep for a week, our 2 boys loved it, a few decent places to visit. Managed to find loads of decent beaches. Food great. Definitely be back, probably to polymnia as well.
Stayed in Studio 3 at Polymnia. Good functional accomodation and easy walking distance (assuming you don't mind/can) to beaches, centre, supermarkets and Argostoli. Located on top of hill so reasonable views. Would use again.
does anybody know where there is a good place to hire a car in lassi?
