Escape the crowds with holidays to Katelios, a pretty Greek fishing village in southern Kefalonia. Set against a backdrop of unspoilt scenery, tucked away between pine-covered hills and a sun-soaked sandy coast, it’s the perfect spot for a peaceful island break. Katelios is brimming with traditional Greek charm, think quaint taverns and a bustling harbour, and its Mediterranean beaches are ideal for a spot of relaxation. When you’re ready to explore beyond the shoreline, you can head into the lush countryside and trek through the hills. It’s a great place to get away from it all.
Things to do
Tranquil beaches, crystal-clear waters and Mediterranean sunshine are all part of Katelios’ appeal. You can make the most of Kefalonia’s stunning natural landscape from here, by trekking through the eucalyptus and verdant pine trees. Keen hikers won’t be able to resist heading uphill to enjoy panoramic views across the coast. If water sports are more your thing, it’s well worth taking a water taxi over to the lively village of Skala, where you can try everything from scuba diving to windsurfing. When the sun goes down, you’ll be more than ready for mouth-watering fresh seafood at a local taverna. Oh, and a glass of Robola wine, too.
This holiday hotspot is a year-round destination with beautifully long, warm summers and mild winters.
