About Stella Komina

Our family lives permanently in more than 29 consecutive years.

Stella studied Public Health, Ceramics and Painting in Athens.

She initially worked in the stated owned Prefecture of the island for the public health, afterwards privately in her own office for 2 years and finally since she got married Lampros, got involved with the tourism and her private pottery workshop and paintings.

She loves on decorating everything and gardening !

Lampros, studied business administration in the University of Piraeus in Athens.

Initially was a building contractor in Athens, in his father s business.

He adores the country life more, so gave up the city and moved to the island on 1986.

He loves seeing his guests, especially children, being happy, by looking after them properly.

Stella Komina purchased this apartment in 1987

Why Stella Komina chose Lassi

This land was acquired in 1985, when the wonderful area of Lassi was still not a tourist region.

Makris Gialos beach the best one in the island, one of the most amazing beaches in the world, was the best choice being done the no 1 tourist destination.

The white sand spreaded to all the length and width of the beach , the scenic scenery with the white rocks on the left, the crystal blue clear water, the pine trees compose all the world of perfection.

The area with plenty of trees and hilly pieces of land, so romantic and at the same time, so close to a big town with all the amenities, supposed to be the no1 choice.

What makes this apartment unique

This piece of land, so close to the beach only 2 - 3 minutes walk , dependent on the walking tempo, so peaceful and tranquil, among thousand of trees, lovely neighbours with their traditional houses, was the ideal in our case.

The apartments built on the correct geometric angle takes sun at the right time.

You feel so familiar around, like second home.

Wonderful apartments in beautiful grounds

  • 5 of 5

We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect accommodation during our two week stay in Kefalonia. After a very short 10/15 minute taxi ride from the airport, we were greeted so so warmly by Lambros, Stella and Maria. They even gave us some fresh lemonade. The apartment was spotless and the grounds so beautiful. You can either laze by the Simatos splash pool or take a very short walk to Marianna’s pool. The beautiul Makris gialos beach is literally a couple of minutes walk as are the local restaurants and supermarket. The location is just perfect. I would highly recommend Simatos apartments. Thank you so much Stella, Lambros and Maria for giving us such a wonderful holiday!!

lovely place - lovely people

  • 5 of 5

Lovely holiday, we were made welcome as soon as we arrived & that continued throughout our stay. The grounds are gorgeous and very peaceful, but everything you need is within 5-10 walk, the beach, shops and restaurants. I would not hesitate to recommend the apartments as a good base when visiting Kefalonia. They even gave us a gift on our Anniversary and Stella provided some homemade lemonade one day when we were sitting in the garden - lovely little touches. Thank you .

Makris Gialos beach

Kefalonia, the fifth in size, among appr. 3000 islands in Greece.

This means, no less than 1 week needed, for a complete round.

Simatos apartments being located in the centre, admit an easier access to each point of the island

First of all, you certainly start with the best of the island, which really is Makris Gialos white sandy beach, (2 minutes walk), with the crystal, clear water and the sport activities ( award winning).

As well as, the Saint Gerasimos cave on the Lassi hill , where he stayed for only few years, before he moved to the foot of Ainos and built a monastery.

By the way, Lassi is a wide hilly area, considered to be Argostoli suburb, which is extended to a 3,5 km length, along the coastline, embracing a number of tiny beaches and the outstanding long and wide enough beach of Makris and Platis Gialos, which are well known, for the unique white sand and the amazing see bottom colours.

In the town of Argostoli, ( 3 km away), there are the Archaeological and the Folk museum, with enough exhibits from the oldest life of the island.

All the coast and bay around Argostoli, including lake round, is a wonderful walking distance, with a few cafe and restaurants, in front of the see water!.

Argostoli, is located on a hilly peninsula, with nice houses built on the hillside, which composes an unforgettable scenic scenery, especially while viewed, from the .opposite hillside of the lake.

As long as, you really desire to explore the whole island, rent a car, or hire a taxi, or catch the bus and keep on going to one of the 3 different directions, the northern- which requires at least 2 days trip- the Souith and the West side one.

All the South Kefalonia is full of nice beaches, one by one, Ammes, Minies, Avithos, Spartia, Pesada, Karavados, Trapezaki, Lourdas, Ratzakli and before Poros, the Scala village and its beach with nice small pebbles. very wide and long, but quickly deep( as the only disadvantage) beach.

On the North, in my opinion the most bountiful side of the island, Mellisani lake and Drogarati caves in the Karavomilos village, close to Sami town, are the most excellent places to visit first.

At the same village, see water which originates from Argostoli, via underground streams, under the island, is led inside a natural small lake with ducks and fish, before entering the see.

Drive northern and reach the superb beach of Myrtos beach.

The great view from the top of the road, is unforgettable and ideally for fans of super photos.

Next and very close, 2-3 km away you get to the very cute coastal tranquil village Assos, with the Venetian castle.and the houses built almost inside the seawater.

Fiscardo is globally famous, this traditional picturesque village, with the wonderful bay, where yachts and fishing boats, are anchored..

On the bay of Ag. Efimia, also lies the nice homonyms coastal village, with good restaurants and cafe, in front of the fishing boats and yachts.

In the distance between this village and Sami there are plenty of avalon for swimming with crystal cold water and pebbles.

Antisamos beach , few km from Sami is one of the best.

Agrilia Monastery is climbed on the top of a hill outside of Sami, on the way to Antisamos, devoted to the Virgin Mary, is a small Paradise copy.

Mountain Ainos, is famous for the black spruces 1650 appr. metres hight. On the foot of the mountain and a bit outside of the village Valsamata, there is the peaceful monastery of Saint Gerasimos, with nuns and the relic of the Saint.

From the other side of the mountain , in the area of Scala and Poros, there is the monastery of Argilia, where you can possibly see the famous white horses, drinking water from the sources.

Lixouri, has the very nice Petani, Xi and Platia ammos beaches, as the most known. As well as, the Monasteri Kipouria, with just a monk and an amazing view to the pelagos.

After all that, i trust, you will be enough emotionally strong, to take the scheduled plane back at home.
