“Peace and Quiet”
Reviewed 4 July 2013

Just had a lovely stay here.
Very peaceful. Made most welcome by Koula.
Room very clean.
In a quiet area.
Really enjoyed our stay.
About five minutes ro the beach but, we walked ro the part which is opposite the island which takes about 30 minutes. Here you can visit Manolis refreshment van, serving ice cream, drinks, etc. At night try Argo!

Reviewed 24 September 2012

We travelled from Kos to Kefalos on the bus, this took approx one hour. However they are not very regular (arriving at 10am from the ferry, we had to wait till 1pm). This bus also stops at the airport.

On Main street in Kefalos coming from Kos/airport, you will notice on the right (a little after the second Manolis car hire, near a small supermarket called John - as that's easy to remember) is a side road with a sign 'Vasilis studios'. Take that side road up to Afentouli studios - this is about a 7min walk. You will pass a supermarket 'Anthoulis' and the Mayflower hotel. It is the next one.

There is no reception, but the landlady is usually around cleaning the rooms or in room 1, speak to her to check in.

The room for us was perfect as we just needed a room to sleep in for 2 nights. We had come from Turkey for a wedding and thus were only in the studio to sleep. These are rooms with a bathroom and kitchen (studios!). Our room had a double and a single; it was very spacious considering there were just two of us. The rooms were very clean! Rooms have WIFI and a safe. There is no restaurant/cafe and no pool. However there are plenty of places to eat &drink on Main Street.

Kefalos is a quiet resort (possibly due to the economic recession.) However it's great for a chill out holiday, but personally one week is sufficient.

*Location
coming out from the apartment and down to the main street; there are a couple of bars on the left and restaurants either side. On the right you will see a supermarket named, Psilos, and just further than that is a 24 hr cash machine (bright yellow).

*Kefalos, Old Town
This is on top of the hill. There is a Green 'dotto' train that you can flag down and it takes you up there for 3 euro, wherever you are picked up from. This is every 45mins.
We was lucky on the last day as we planned to pop up there before we left and one turned up as we just reached main road, about 12ish.

There's a bus stop where the train stops in old town (this goes to Kos) and also a bank opposite in case you need to withdraw cash. I found there wasn't much to do but eat, as they were all cafes. The view up there is amazing though as you look over Kefalos and you can see the little island with the chapel. You have to go to old town at least once.

*Transport
There is a bus that can take you to Paradise beach, they are not regular but you can check the bus times at the bus stop, this is also the same bus that goes to Kos.

There are no local taxis and they travel from the airport so to get anywhere it will be minimum 20euros! Apparently it is about €40 a day to hire a car/Jeep so not to bad if you are splitting the cost!

Tip: the weather here is quite cool/windy in the evening as it is right on the coast. So warmer clothes are needed!
