Katelios - good for villa holiday with small children?

Hello,

we are looking for a small beachside resort with plenty of tavernas and a bit of Greek charm. We are hoping to spend days at the beach or exploring and early evenings having a bite to eat at a taverna with our young children.

Katelios seems to offer what we are looking for but we would greatly value the comments of other trip advisor users as we have found in the past they far exceed the information given in brochures.

Thank you in advance for your comments,

Devizes, United...

Hi there

Katelios is certainly small and laid back and has a good beach for the kids. It has a selection of bars and restaurants. If you wanted to get out and about a bit, you would really need to consider hiring a car for 3-4 days as the bus services on the island are a bit few and far between

The Utopia Hotel has a large kids pool and an Intermediate pool as well as a large adult size pool. There is also a playground. Apart from that, I can't really add any more than what GB has stated above.

Personally, if you wanted a quiet family holiday and let the kids run on the beach, then go to Katelios.

we have been going to kefalonia since our son was 11 weeks old.. although we stay in villa in old skala/ratzatli area we always take the kids to katelios in the evenings if we eat out. the tavernas are right on the beach so the kids can play whilst waiting for their food. there is also a rather tired playground on the beach where the little kids hang out whilst waiting for us it has been perfect. plenty of choice too. our fave beach is kaminia/mounda beach as it is really sandy and shallow for a long way. you can walk round from katelios or if you have a car its a very short drive in the Skala direction.

We stayed in a Villa Parade property called Viilla Poseidonia. Was just 700m from beach. Great pool and super size. Would definately recommend for a family.
