Philoxenia Studios and Apartments

Sandwiched between sea and mountains, the Philoxenia Studios and Apartments would need to work hard to stand out, if it wasn’t for the delightfully modern and eye-catching plum and white facade. Beautifully designed, the structure of the apartments really stands out for the right reasons.

These tastefully decorated apartments come complete with fully equipped kitchenettes for easy self-catering breaks. They’re spread out over an intimate yet uncrowded site and are all within easy walking distance of every amenity you could need. With a lovely beach, numerous restaurants, shops, bars and the town centre all under 1km away, you’ll enjoy sleeping well and taking a dip in the pool at the complex, and little else.

Overview of Katelios

Holidays to Kefalonia are popular with sun worshippers, beach lovers and foodies alike, not to mention those that have either read Captain Corelli’s Mandolin or seen the film. Despite being utterly beautiful, however, the island still gets few visitors compared to Corfu and as a result, enjoys a lovely unspoilt aesthetic.

Found on the east coast of Kefalonia, Katelios is ideal for anyone looking for serious relaxation, peace and seclusion. With a backdrop of pine trees and hills, the pretty beaches are idyllic to say the least, and being a fishing village, you’ll be able to enjoy some fresh seafood with a glass or two of something special for dinner. From there, it will be a mercifully short walk back to the Philoxenia Studios and Apartments.

Things to do in Katelios

After enjoying a dip in the pool at the Philoxenia Studios and Apartments, thoughts will naturally turn to finding somewhere fabulous to eat and while away a few hours, and Katelios has options in droves.

Traditional tavernas and relaxed eateries are dotted along the hillside and along the beach, so don’t worry about packing any formalwear. You will need some decent walking shoes, however, as the hills are absolutely worth hiking up and will give you some excellent views out over the whole area. You won’t find a bustling nightlife scene here, but neighbouring Skala will satisfy any and all dancing desires.

Still managing to fly under the tourist radar to a certain degree, Kefalonia remains peaceful, pretty and perfect for true relaxation. It’s a slice of authentic Greece that you’ll never forget.


Resort Summary

Set among pine-covered hills, Katelios has a series of fine-sand beaches. Other than lying on the beaches, activities include heading out for country walks, or taking a boat trip round the island for the day. The village has a fishing tradition and you can try the wonderful fresh fish in the evenings, and a tipple or two in the town’s restaurants.

Should you fancy something a little more lively on your holidays to Greece, Dreams Bar has you covered through the day and into the evening with its fun beach-shack decor, and top-quality quirky cocktails. For venues that open until late, head to nearby Skala for a greater selection of bars and a nightclub.
