Filoxenia Studios - (Accommodation in Katelios)

Kirstin C           

I felt i had to add some comments about the filoxenia apartments at Katelios having just returned home after a fantastic 2 week holiday there.

I was absolutely dreading this holiday having read Sue Christian's comments to the point where if i had not read these comments only two days before we went away i would have gone to the travel agents to see if we could change our accommodation.

Fortunately I did not do this and our experience of the Filoxenia was very different - it was a quite chilled out place in a very unspoilt and beautiful part of the island. The owners the guests and the cleaner (!) were all friendly. The pool bar was very popular in the evenings and Angela (behind the bar) although obviously not keen to be your best mate is nevertheless friendly and pleasant. Her friends do come to the bar in the evening but they are all pretty friendly too. Bar prices the same as any other bar - cocktails are a bit more pricey but we are talking 50 p more pricey!

Her kids do come to the pool sometimes in the afternoons and while quite lively are very sweet.

The apartments themselves are fab - we couldn't complain - very large - we had a balcony and sea view and loads of wardrobe space and in our opinion - clean.

Katelios is pretty quiet but with good restaurants especially Persas restaurant which is about a 5 minute walk away. It is about a 10 minute walk down to the beach but its pretty easy. We would recommend hiring a car to do some exploring of what is a beautiful island. But don't be put off - the Filoxenia is great and we had a brilliant holiday!
