I always research possible places to stay very carefully which is why I rarely end up giving a bad review, but really struck lucky here as I only had a couple of days in which to find somewhere suitable to stay. I decided on the last minute to take a quick one week's break in Kefalonia to escape the British weather, found a cheap flight, and then researched the internet for a good place to stay in Katelios. I usually stay up the road in Skala, but fancied a change for this quick trip. This place is all about location - an absolutely stunning position right on Kato Katelios beach. To the right from the property are the tavernas of Kato Katelios, to the left a wonderful beach and a lovely place to swim. Although these are basic traditional self-catering apartments, for the price paid I thought they were excellent which is why I give them 5 stars. Breakfast was included in the price, and this was taken right on the beach - a magical spot in which to enjoy a leisurely breakfast. Fresh rolls, fruit, pancakes with honey, different meats and cheeses, yoghurt, cereal, tea, coffee, orange juice. A nice way to start the day. It is a peaceful quiet spot, which suited exactly. The apartments are simple, but comfortable and always very clean. They are cleaned every day and the bins emptied, and the towels and bed linen (sparkling white) were changed half way through the week's stay. The family who run these apartments are so welcoming and friendly, and cannot do enough for you. The owner Nontas had a cancellation on an upstairs apartment with huge balcony, and even an upstairs bedroom, and offered to upgrade us to this apartment free of charge. The views from the balcony were just wonderful and many a happy hour was spent there, glass of wine in hand, just smiling from ear to ear and taking in the peace, tranquillity and the sea views.
It was a lovely week, and a big "thank you" to the ever smiling and helpful Nontas and his family! I will be back in the future for certain and can thoroughly recommend these apartments if you are looking for traditional style self-catering accommodation with friendly, helpful and welcoming hosts.
