We came across this attraction sort of by accident while walking around Lassi peninsula. It's a short stroll to to/ from the lighthouse. I understand that the fresh water from the inland caves emerges into the sea here and mixes with the saltwater here, correct me if I've misunderstood the friendly local advice.

Very good food . You feel a cosmopolitan atmosphere. Decoration and furniture is minimal style from expensive Italian brands . After your dinner you can move into the next room and enjoy a classy Bar either inside or outside .Usually they have top rated DJ;s . Stays open till very late . Nothing in the island like this

Whilst walking along the coast, we came across this waterwheel, the premises it is attached to was shut, it was at the end of the season so might have been that, but it appears to be shut permanently, the grass ect was uncut and weeds were growing, graffiti was on the main boards. Nice information board explaining about the wheel,... More

Take a little hike and you come across this waterwheel. Nice place to sit and ponder, watching the ferries going from the town to Lixouri and the expensive yachts coming into the harbour. We were told that the water powering the wheel was checked with a fluorescent dye and emerged the other side of the island at the caves travelling... More

This is a place which one must visit when in Argostoli. Whether its day time, sunset and especially evening for a relaxing cocktail. The concept is great. One can sit and enjoy the outstanding view whilst enjoying a meal or drinks.

We visited this geological phenomenon as part of an overall walk from our hotel in Lassi en route to Argostoli and thought it was worth the walk to. The windmill is probably the star of the show however the small pools dotted around are interesting to look at. I think the site would benefit from an information board with a... More

This waterwheel is situated close to Lassi. It leads to a phenomenon where sea water appears to disappear through clefts in the rock. When we visited, the restaurant was not open and we were the only people there so it was tranquil. Worth a visit.
