My wife and I have just returned from a very enjoyable week staying at the Artemis apartments in Kefalos. We booked through Manos which is now a part of the Thomas Cook group.
The Artemis apartments are excellent.
Sited in a quiet location just down the road from the petrol filling station about 50 yards up a well lit concrete path (ignore what the Manos brochure says about needing a torch at night). A 24 hour diner, mini-market and bar within 25 yards of the end of the path leading to the block.
A two storey block about 8 years old with a total of 10 apartments.
Spotlessly clean, spacious and bright rooms with good kitchen facilities - fridge with freezer compartment, 2 ring burner, toaster and kettle, adequate pots, pans, glasses & cutlery.
Small dining table with two cushioned chairs.
A good sized balcony with a Plastic table and two chairs. The balcony faces west so you get the sun all afternoon. Views from the ground floor balconies a bit restricted by surrounding olive trees.
Usual Greek style shower and toilet room.
Large wardrobe with two storage drawers beneath.
Dressing table with two drawers with a mirror above.
Single bed-side cabinet.
Good sized wooden framed beds with very firm mattresses and pillows.
Sheets and towels changed every other day.
Plenty of hot water from about 10:00am (heated by solar panels) until well into the evening.
Safety box in room - costs about 10 Euros a week .
No air conditioning which could well be an issue in the height of summer but fans can be hired.
No pool or snack bar on site but no problem about using other nearby hotel pools. We used the pool & loungers at the
Late check-out from room (we stayed until 11:00 pm) costs 25 Euros.
The owners Nick & Katherina and their family live on-site in a single storey annexe to the main block and are available at all times. We found them to be very friendly, obliging and welcoming.
I would readily recommend the Artemis apartments.
