Hi Kaz,

Definitely Lassi, perfect for solo traveller, best beaches, good restaurants and short walk or taxi ride into Argostoli for more eateries and plenty of shops. certainly not remote.We have very often met solo travellers who have loved lassi Hope you get sorted and enjoy

Hi again,

I would probably pick Lassi without knowing if you have a particular hotel in mind. The reason is that some of the hotels that claim to be in Lixouri are actually at 'Xi beach. A pleasant enough beach but about 7km from Lixouri and there are only a couple of tavernas at Xi.

Lixouri is a pleasant town in a great area of the island but you would need a car to explore the area and I don't know of any excursions starting there.

There is a regular ferry to Argostoli operating from early morning until about midnight. Cost about 3€ each way.

Because of the ferry or long drive round transfers would cost about 50€ to Lixouri by taxi although if you are actually based in the town you can cut this to about 30€.

Lixouri has a better range of shops than Lassi and is also a proper town.

Lassi is a nice resort but it is only a resort.

It really depends on what you want from your holiday.

Bob

Lixouri is a bit remote imo. I would pick Lassi. Are you looking to mix and meet plenty of ppl? If so I would go for a small but lively hotel or complex with a scene (greek nights etc) rather than a few studios without a pool or bar.

Hi kaz, plenty of choice, are you going TO or indipendent & hotel over apartment? When we were there in Sept there was a lady on her own who said she had no prob coming to Kef as it was perfectly safe.

I think Irelena hotel on main street would suit you its small and has a very friendly bar where guests solo or couples meet in the evening, also tavernas on the doorstep. You could also use Marianna's pool again a lovely friendly place. Hope you get sorted.

I would agree that Irelena hotel looked like a great little meeting place when we walked past of an evening. Its on the main road as well so you would feel completely safe walking back there at night - not that anywhere is unsafe but some accommodation is along dark pathways.
