Katelios is a much loved traditional Greek fishing village on the southeast coast of the island, set in a scenic valley of green trees and grey rocky outcrops. It is only a small place but full of charm, offering the perfect base to relax and unwind. It’s long stretch of beach, many tavernas and stunning scenery has visitors returning year after year.
The main road into the village in mostly flat so wherever you stay you’ll have easy access to the beach; along the way there is a bakery, mini markets, Jerry’s Elliniko restaurant, Persa’s taverna, pool bars and an ATM. The sea front is a terrace of tavernas and café bars which offer a daytime service on the sand & shingle beach and sumptuous meals by night. Swim in the warm shallow water, explore the coast on a boat trip, or experience a traditional Greek fishing vessel on one of the daily fishing tours which leaves from the small harbour at the end of village.
If you want to get out and explore more of the island from Katelios, you will need to hire a car. There is a local bus service which passes through twice a day during the summer going to and from Argostoli.
If you don’t base yourself in resort for the duration of your holiday, we highly recommend you visit. You can laze on the beach, eat at one of the many tavernas and enjoy a perfect lazy day!

Mike ”we have stayed in Katelios for the last 2 years after wanting a change from our usual stays in Skala, Lassi, and Lixouri. We stayed at Notos Studios and Albouro Apartments both well recommended. Hopefully we’ll be back in July….

…..We like Katelios because of the lovely shallow child friendly beaches, the excellent choice of restaurants literally on the beach front and the fact you can leave your hotel room and be on the beach in seconds”

John & Carol ”we have enjoyed a couple of holidays in Katelios, we stayed in a villa on the main road and it was an easy walk down onto the seafront. A good selection of tavernas and friendly, relaxed atmosphere, highly recommended”
