Accommodation in Lassi

Ventura 2015. We had a fantastic time. Fotini is so nice! She is always around looking after the rooms and all the people who stay there. The rooms are clean and quiet with a beautiful view down to the bay from the patio. Lovely to go back to the room after a day on the beach and relax on the patio with a glass of wine, so peaceful. Enjoyed going into Lassi in the evenings, plenty of places to eat. Trendis is a great place to watch the faboulous sunsets, found ourselves drawn to it every night! We have already booked our flights for next year! Can't wait to get back to Fotini, Trend is, Costa beach and the sunshine!

2013 - Ventura is such a lovely relaxing place to stay on the island of Kefalonia. Owners Fotini and Nick are so helpful and will do anything to help you enjoy and relax into the holiday. The views from the terrace are wonderful and Lassi restaurants and bars are just a 10 minuite walk away, steep hill walk on the way back will keep you fit. Agostoli 20 minute walk or short taxi drive away. Great place to stay. K and R K.

We have had two lovely holidays this year 2011 in Kefalonia and stayed at Ventura Rooms with Fotini and Nick the most delightful owners of Ventura.  Fotini and Nick are lovely people who will do anything to help make your holiday an enjoyable event.
Ventura is ideally positioned up a hill from the Lassi main Road.  The views from the rooms and terrace are incredible whatever season you visit.  We really do enjoy our holidays at Ventura and are looking forward to visiting again in June 2012.
Thank you so much Fotini and Nick.

Just another 3 weeks until we visit Nic and Fotini again, as everyone else has stated, they are absolutely the best hosts / friends .  We really look forward to our yearly week with them, this is the ONLY place that we have ever returned too !!! and are now in our 8th year.

Its a pity we hadnt found out about them many years ago.
Both of the daughters ( Stacey and Tonia) are lovely. I really look forward to a chat and beer with Nic while Fotini and Elaine catch up !!.
The rooms are always being updated, the area around the rooms has also changed markedly since our early days.  Would we recommend staying ......most definately YES so long as there is room for us !!
Nic ....its MY TURN to pay for the night out !!!!
All the best Matt and Elaine

October 2010.  Had another wonderful holiday at the Ventura Rooms in Lasssi.  Wonderful friendly service from the owners Fotini and Nick who will do everything to make your stay a real pleasure. Lovely clean rooms, clean bedding and towels daily when required.  Beautiful views, ideal location up a hillside from the Lassi main road.  A wonderful place to relax in the sunshine.  We will be visiting again in 2011.
Thank you Fotini and Nick for making our stay with you at Ventura so enjoyable.

We have just returned from another lovely holiday in October 2010 at the Ventura Rooms in Lassi.
The weather was beautiful, Ventura remains excellent value and a very pretty and relaxing place to stay.
Ventura owners Fotini and Nick helped make our stay so pleasant.  They made us feel so at ease and so welcome at Ventura. 
The rooms are very clean and given daily attention by Fotini and Nick.  Spotlessly clean towels and bedding are provided and changed regularly, daily if required.  Nothing is too much trouble for Fotini or Nick, they are both so kind and every attention was given to our comfort making our stay at Ventura a real pleasure. 
Thank you to you both.  Look forward to seeing you again in 2011.

Ventura Rooms are in Lassi close to St Gerassimos Church.  We have visted Kefalonia for the past 18 years and we have now found Ventrura Rooms and the wonderful owners Fotini and Nicos.  We have just returned from a most delightful holiday in June 2010.  The rooms are comfortable, spotlessly clean and the wonderful views from the balcony and terrace are truly breathtaking. Fotini and Nicos are lovely, kind people and both made us feel so welcome.  We have at last found the best place to stay in Lassi Kefalonia and we will certainly be booking again.

Have just booked again, this will be our 10th year and sometimes twice in a year. We cannot fault anything about the rooms and Fotini and Nick are the best hosts you could ever meet. The rooms are basic but everything you could need is there and the view is amazing the sunsets breathtaking. We have travelled the world and still love Kefalonia it is the only place we have visited so many times. Fotini and Nick treat everyone as family they put on bbqs and pick you up from the airport nothing is too much trouble. BARRIE AND PAT TUNLEY

What a blessing... We loved the rooms, location,view and above all the friendliness of Fontini and Nick. They made us feel so welcome, that we now go back every year since... We recomended Ventura rooms  to our friends and they also loved it there. Every year we look forward to going back and seeing our lovely friends Fontini and Nick and also our beloved Kefalonia.

I am looking to get a holiday in late july or august this year (2008), you have been recommended. Have you any pictures please?

I cannot recommend this accommodation enough, Nick and Fotini are the perfect hosts and really enjoy making a fuss over you while you are there. We have been for the last two years and we are booked again to go this year, we would never want to stay anywhere else. The views from the apartments are beautiful and Nick will fire up the BBQ for you in the evening if you fancy a "night in". The rooms are always spotless and a bottle of wine is there to greet you after Nick or Fotini collect you from the airport. Don't be put off by the walk up the hill, it's really not that bad and helps to work off your dinner in the evening!

My parents Laura and David Bolton have asked me to request some details about your accomodation.
My parents visited your local area last year and on leaving their apartment one day, bumped into you and were invited to view one of your apartments. Both were extremely impressed by your hospitality, warmth and outstanding cleanliness. They would love to come  again to the area this June and have asked me to obtain price lists from you for June. 
Please can you email me a list of prices for your apartments, I am not sure how long they intend to stay, I think they just wanted a guide price?
Many thanks,

Matt S           

Nick and Fotini have become very good friends, we have been visiting them for the last 3 years, in fact we fly back next Saturday to see them. Either Nick or Fotini meets us at the airport or arranges our car hire for us, we feel like part of the family.

The rooms are extremely clean, Fotini wouldnt have it any other way.
We always have the most relaxed holiday, totally stress free, and views to die for  from the patio, when you have a glass of wine !
Fotini mainly deals  with "word of mouth " referrals via their e-mail which is
Ventura_rooms    but dont tell anyone, or there wont be room for me !!

 we arranged last miute flights from bristol via excellent deal phoned fontini and nick but were full,as usuall they came through for us and arranged accomodation close-bye. They arranged carhire to be collected at airport on arrival ,everything went as clockwork.Only trouble is to many people have found they must return time and time again it makes it hard to fit us in ,but we have arranged to go back in october cannot wait. it,s like home from home

We have only been home a day, and are booking to return in september. Our first trip to the island was made extra special by Fortina and Nick whilst staying at Ventura Apartments. What a fantastic find! The whole holiday was amazing and they made it feel like we were staying with "family"

Cannot recommend enough, even the earthquake on our last morning did not put us off!
The rooms are pretty and totally spotless, everything you need to have a relaxing proper holiday and very good value for money.
Shops, beaches and restaurants are all minutes away, and if the hill seems a bit much- a taxi from the town is 4 Euros.
Markris Gialos (Long beach) was stunning, as were the views from the rooms. The glass bottom boat is well worth the day trip out. The dolphins are truly wonderful!
The resort caters for all ages, we are in our 20's and had plenty to keep us entertained day and night!
Looking forward to our return...

We went on a last minute deal -Allocation on Arrival - to Kefalonia having never been before to the island.  The appartment we were given was the Irelena at the top end of Lassi near the Dolphin Supermarket, we hated it.  We spent a day searching for somewhere else to stay and happily stumbled across Fortina and Nick.
They made our stay in Kefalonia.  The appartments were clean and simple but the care and extra help offered by Fortina and Nick made all the difference.  They are such a lovely couple. We will definately go back.
Kefalonia is a beautiful island and if you were to judge it by it's locals - Fortina and Nick, then it is even more so.

We went last June to Ventura Rooms, Lassi and loved it so much are going back this year - next Tuesday, in fact!   We were met at the airport as promised and driven to the apartments so no problems with transfers.   The apartment itself was simple, but with everything you need and beautifully clean.    In fact it was cleaned  every day to the highest standard.    Fortina and Nick could not have been more helpful, nothing was too much trouble for them.   They wanted us to enjoy Kefalonia and did everything they could to ensure we did - and we did!   The views from the apartments were breathtakingly beautiful - daytime and evenings, utterly amazing.   The hill was a bit daunting at first but we got used to it and though it may sound a bit strange, quite fond of it after the first week.   We used to stop off about two-thirds the way up at the small church (for a short rest and to cool down) so we jokingly tell friends "we went to church every day"!   Lots of Tavernas in the main street (10 minutes away, down the hill!) very nice beaches - everything you could wish for - in fact it was a real "holiday" - can't wait till Tuesday!!
