This small but excellent complex is tucked away just a very short walk from the bay, shops, bars and restaurants. The apartments are basic but very, very good. They are more than adequate, and cleaned on a very regular basis. The sheets and towels are also regularly changed. The apartments are in their own grounds and beautiful gardens, which are kept to a very high standard. There is an excellent swimming pool which again is cleaned and serviced daily. There is a really good pool side bar which serves excellent coffee, snacks and meals. This is run by a lovely but cheeky English lady who speaks fluent Greek.

We stayed at Kontessa apartments in Kefalos they are set in well cared for gardens, they have lovely big rooms, Joanna the owner very nice also Carol at pool cafe/bar.
Kefalos is a lovely place for a holiday that has suffered from bad press about the immigrants, we hired a car and on our travels didn't see any they are not there.
Places to visit is HIPPOCRATES GARDEN, PLAKA, SUNSET BEACH (wave beach) and go to up to the village of Kefalos. We will be back.

Room Tip: Better views on upper floor

Just back from a week at the Kontessa Apartments, Kefalos, Kos. Great apartments, lovely people, especially Caril who runs the bar! Worth going back just to see her! Had a restful week, lovely food in local restaurants, Greek people just as lovely and friendly as ever.
Sadly, not many visitors about, locals cite fear of economic problems in Greece, and refugees - neither an issue. Would highly recommend both the Kontessa and Kefalos as a great place for a holiday...and get to meet Caril!!

Room Tip: Upstairs rooms all have a great view of the sea.
