If you want a place to completely relax then this is the place, the rooms are spotless and the pool are is fantastic. Stuart and Alison run the pool bar and in my opinion make the place. The bar food is excellent and well priced, and Alison does the best pizza and Greek salad. The walk to the restaurants and beach is about 10/15 minutes but when it’s very hot seems like forever, I think they would earn a fortune if transport was laid on I’m sure people would pay a few euros for this service especially on the way back from town. Friday night is quiz night which was fun. I would definitely come back, overall a fantastic relaxing holiday
Beautiful apartments in great location

Have just returned from a weeks stay at the Filonexia Apartments and what can I say. Perfect in every way. They are in a perfect location just a short stroll (Around 15 minutes) from the beach, bars, restaurants and tavernas of Katelios. The surroundings are beautiful, the atmosphere is friendly and welcoming and there is none of the rush for a sunbed. The pool bar is run by brother and sister Stuart and Allison and they are so friendly. Nothing is too much. This was our first time in Kefalonia, but it won't be our last and we would have no hesitation in returning to the Filonexia.

We visited the Philoxenia from May 21st for two weeks , we were a family party consisting of myself , hubby , 8 yr old daughter and 6 yr old son plus my parents who were the ones that recommended the apartments having stayed in the Anemona apartments situated on the opposite side of the road. All I can say is I’m so glad that for once I actually listened to my parents as we had the most amazing time. Firstly the apartments are clean , welcoming and in a great position. We had room 203 which has the biggest balcony I have seen in my life and meant that the kids could be outside safely and we didn’t have to worry about them. The cleaner absolutely works her butt off and does an amazing job , even down to the little details of folding the kids night clothes up and putting them on the pillows. The pool area is clean , spacious and I don’t think you would ever have to worry about not getting a sun bed. My only criticism would be that there is not a kids pool and the shallow end of the pool is still quite deep. Alison and Stewart who run the apartments are absolutely beyond words amazing and couldn’t do enough to help us. Unfortunately while we were away our son came down with a stomach bug and Alison did whatever she could to help us , advising the cleaner not to clean the room that day so as not to disturb him , getting us clean sheets when needed and checking on him during the day. Alison also helped us find a 6 seater hire car when we were let down by tui who accidentally double booked us. Basically Alison and Stewart made us feel welcome and were always around for a chat of to help anyway they could. Now unfortunately I do have to pop a couple of negative notes firstly the breakfast although very good and can be added to with cooked items for a small charge did get very samey , a choice of fruit salad or maybe some ham would of been welcome. Secondly the apartment was very lacking in plates , bowls , cutlery etc , I understand this is because they use them for breakfast but when you have 2 young kids that want snacks in the room it’s hard to do that with nothing to serve them on. Thirdly I would of really appreciated something to hang wet clothes on as we had to hand them over the balcony rails and we lost a few bits when they blew off. Other than those niggly little points I would give the apartments the biggest thumbs up ever. We will be back !!

Just returned from a lovely,( and very hot ) holiday here, the taxi pick up from the airport was a nice surprise because it's inaccessible to coaches, as usual tui transfers were efficient. The room was clean bed very comfortable, equipped with kettle and fridge 2 small cups and 2 glasses, the aircom was €35 a week very efficient and essential, safe €10 and room tax €3.50 /week. You will receive a warm welcome from Alison or Stuart at the pool bar , serving lovely food and drink, plenty of sunloungers round the pool and nobody was selfishly reserving them Its a short walk into the village with lots of beach side tavernas, we tried tsobos garden, delicious, medusa, captain jerrys and grill house ,all excellent The walk back up ,especially in the heat of the day will have you wanting to jump straight into the pool to cool off !! On the beach we turned left and used the free sunbeds at albouros beach bar had lunch there one day was delicious Apart from the tavernas there are a couple of mini markets a couple of gift shops, and a supermarket and bakery on the main road Katelios is a quiet and relaxed small resort would maybe be too quiet for some but suited us.
Another Wonderful Holiday

We’ve just finished another wonderful holiday at the Filoxenia. This is our second year after visiting last year, having such a lovely time we decided to return. It was just has good. Allison and Stuart who run the pool bar absolutely make this place (Thank you for another fab holiday!!). They’re friendly welcome was like coming home again. They will make your stay comfortable and humorous! No one is safe from Stuart’s quick humour. There bar is well stocked, with many different drinks varieties on offer. A carafe of wine is also a steal at €4! Allison’s pizza are also delicious, and great for a pool side lunch. They also have an impressive amount of knowledge about the island, so if you’re looking for hints and tips, you’ve come to the right place. The rooms are clean, modern and spacious. We stayed in an apartment and there were three in our party and all had enough space to keep belongings, etc. All of the rooms also have balcony views looking out over the beautiful sea. The pool area is lovely and one of my favourite bits about the place, is that you never have to worry about bagging a sun bed, there’s always plenty available. So no need to set the alarm for 6:30!! I can’t praise this place enough, would definitely return and highly recommend!
