Guestbook comments from the owner

'We loved the location just outside the village and enjoyed a relaxing walk to the nearest restaurants. The view across the valley to the sea and Zante in the distance was inspiring. The pool area was a good size, well equipped with 6 reclining sunbeds and shade if required. The pool itself was well maintained. The villa was clean and tidy, suitably equipped and the beds were very comfortable. John and Jacky were most helpful and with good local knowledge too. We were able to explore most of the island by car with a variety of beautiful beaches and interesting towns and villages to see.' Best wishes, Pickett.



It was the best holiday we've had abroad, the beautiful aroma of the herbs and lemons greeted us as we approached Katelios. We were delighted with Villa Alex and all of the amenities it provided for us. We really enjoyed the pool. We think Kefalonia is so beautiful, green, with flowers in full bloom all around the island and to see the turquoise seas. Best wishes. Jen Green

Great location

  • 4 of 5

Villa is quite basic but pool is great and we loved the location, so close to amenities (but still very quiet and peaceful) and Katelios beach with great restaurants. Everyone on the island was so friendly and Katerina was great to deal with about the villa and arranged a highchair and travel cot for our 7month old. We would recommend!

Another beautiful and relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

Our fifth holiday in Villa Alex, another good experience for our family. The villa is ideally placed with views of the surrounding hills, especially breathtaking when swimming in the pool. Clear sea views right over to Zante from the balcony. The property is always clean and well maintained, with all the facilities. A nearby bakery and mini-market and excellent food in the tavernas on the sea front, what more would we want!

Quiet, peaceful, perfect

  • 4 of 5

Very roomy 3 bed villa. Clean and quiet. Well maintained with great help from Vicky who looks after everything. The Villa is very well equipped and incredibly quiet and private. It's a good 2 miles to walk into Katelios so car is essential. Nearest taverna is Persas just 15 minutes walk. Food was superb there. Torch is essential because once dark it's really dark! Supermarket just beyond Persas very well stocked. Venus car hire on the same road brilliant. Would definitely recommend. Also we were allowed to stay all day on our last day at no extra charge as we had a late flight - perfect!

Best hol in ages

  • 4 of 5

We recently returned from a 2 wk stay in Villa Alex. We had a great time & loved Kefalonia.

The house, garden & pool are all large & very clean. Despite villas to each side, we enjoyed a lot of privacy, and great sea views from the balconies. The air con in the bedrooms was amazing & much needed.

Katelios is lovely, a small village, with restaurants on the beach.

We'd recommend a hire car, as it's on the edge of the village.

Our only negative comments - the Wi-Fi connection was a bit dodgy due to sharing a router with the villa next door, the water supply sometimes cut off & the villa would benefit from satellite tv.

However the maintenance manager, Vikki, & pool man, Clive, were super efficient & helpful, & the owner kindly let us stay on as long as we liked on our last day, before leaving for the airport.

Further Details:

KATELIOS is a seaside village with a sand and shingle beach and is 32 km from the island's capital of Argostoli. Katelios is famous for its fresh fish tavernas and if you like fishing, you can catch your own! This rural setting is a paradise for lovers of nature so if you enjoy walking, discovering rare plants and birds, then bring some comfortable shoes and follow the local footpaths.

The small fishing village of Katelios is located between the busy resorts of “Skala” and “Lourdas” on the south east coast. It consists of a small harbour, a beach with several restaurants by the sea, gift shops, mini markets, and car rental.

The location of Katelios is very un-commercialised, the largest number of visitors being the loggerhead turtles. If you are interested in the protection of the caretta caretta turtles, who love the sandy beaches in the area, take a visit to the Katelios Environmental group, who have set up a small museum and information centre. The local bus service runs from Katelios to Skala and along the coastal road to Poros or in the other direction to Argostoli. Car hire recommended.

Ag. Barbara Beach is a beautiful sand and pebble beach 200m long and 15-20metres wide. Nearby, eucalyptus. pine trees and rose-bay bushes add to the s tranquil beauty of the beach. The beach is accessible by foot, car and bicycle.

Whether you want a beachside snack or a full lobster meal there is a great choice of places to eat in Katelios. In the Ag Barbara beach area you will find a few snack bars. At the other end of the coast you will find a good selection of fish tavernas near the small marina at Katelios. From the village take the road leading out towards Argosotli and a whole new selection of bars and tavernas is on offer.
