I would like to book a holiday at Michalis Studios Lassi. I have stayed there before but it is no longer available through Intersky or Kosmar.Can anyone help?
I was not sure what to expect as Michalis not in the Kosmar brochure, plesantly surprised, basic, but clean & well located for bars & restuarants of lassi and the island capital Argostoli. Some Road noise from main road. Excellant views. Dolphin supermarket fews yards away for most of your shopping needs. Steep track to apartments but well lit. Very Hot I reccomend hiring a fan from Liberatos Car hire which is nearby & quite cheap.
Stayed at Michalis Apartments for one week, we were on the top floor where the rep likes to tell you the air conditioning units are heaters!!!! So called they are only used in the winter... Funny how the ground floor has no units. We hired a fan from Liberatos car hire shop very cheap and very cool, it was a must. We would advise anyone going here to take your own towels as the ones we had were the size of hand towels,not good. The slope to the apartments is steep but not too bad and we didn't need a torch. Good location as we could walk into the Capital, where there were plenty of bars, restaurants and cafes, but we did get a taxi back as it is all up hill. Lassi is nice and there's plenty of places to eat and drink. The only down side to this holiday was the last day we had to be out of our room by 11am and only had a courtsey room until 2.30pm after which time we had to leave our suitcases and bags OUTSIDE the apartments, until our coach picked us up at 7.10pm. We rang the Kosmar Rep to ask about our luggage, she was no help at all and kept telling us it was COMPANY POLICY!!!
The Michalis Apartments proved to be a pleasant surprise since they had not been included in the Kosmar brochure. Compared with my idea of the standard Greek Island Studio they were larger than average and well finished and furnished. Appararently they had been recently refurbished before Kosmar would take them on. I particularly appreciated the new, near silent fridge,tables and chairs both inside and outside, drying up cloths! and even a shower curtain of sorts. There were quite a few extra shelves for storage but hanging and drawer space were limited. The upper studios (5 up, 5 down) and preferable due to the ease of airing them and the stunning views across the sound to Lixouri. The apartments are situated just below the Fanari road at the Argostoli end of Lassi, 200m above the Lassi Hotel. You might hear a little distant traffic noise. You will certainly be awoken by the cockerel in the olive grove out front or the bells clanking when the sheep are let out from the barn next door and start eating the garden. The approach track is 20 yards of very steep rough concrete - no stilettos and easy on the rocket fuel. There are nearby small beaches, but we we wary of the whiff of sewage when the wind blew onshore. Sadly, the great beach (Makris Yialos) is a 25 minute (fairly flat) walk away but faces open, whiff-free sea.
We are due to visit Michalis Apartments in July has anyone stayed there or know of them??? Also what is a must to visit whilst on holiday.
