A traditional Greek fishing village meets the modern day family-run Katelios Studios on the fascinating island of Kefalonia.
Happiness is: A friendly welcome at the family-run Katelios Studios where bright, comfortable rooms make for the perfect stay in Kefalonian sunshine.
There’s no need to rush to grab a sun lounger, there are plenty available around the crystal clear swimming pool with lovely views of the mountains. Settle in on sunloungers under pretty bright blue parasols and you do not have to go far for a drink or snack - just wander over to the pool bar which is open throughout the day.
At Katelios Studios expect traditional Greek accommodation which is clean, airy and comfortable with a good-sized balcony or terrace with inland views. Rooms sleep between one and three people and have a bathroom with shower, an open-plan kitchenette and air conditioning.
Set back from the idyllic fishing village of Katelios, the studios are a short walk to explore the seafront, with welcoming tavernas and restaurants specialising in Greek delicacies and freshly-caught seafood dotted around the village. A well-stocked mini market is a couple of minutes' away for convenience when self catering.
A mile along the coast is Kaminia, otherwise known as Turtle Beach, where nesting loggerhead turtles can be seen. The studios’ staff will be happy to advise on day trips and excursions, including visiting the rugged Mount Ainos National Park and the picturesque Myrtos Beach featured in the film Captain Corelli’s Mandolin.
