Dear friends,

If it should happen that you are heading towards the south, you should know that we have holiday apartments and studios, Sini Apartments, in the village of Kefalos on the island of Kos in the southern Aegean Sea.

All around on an area of 5.000 sqm there are pine, almond, olive, lemon, pomegranate and fig trees, vines, oleanders, hibiscus and many flowers and herbs. The house with the apartments is situated about 300m from a beautiful bay with a delightful beach on the lower slope of the mountain Sini (height 500 m), where a variety of aromatic herbs exude their wonderful scents, about 1200m from the old village of Kefalos, 16km from the airport and 42km from the capital Kos.

Also not far away (300m) is a small fishing pier, from which several small fishing boats sail out to sea every morning and sell their catch directly to the customers after their return. On the 1.2 km long promenade, which leads from the fishing mole to the main coastal road along the sea, there are various small taverns, restaurants and cafés, from which you can enjoy the magnificent view of the sea and the island of Kastri in the bay. On the same street, there are a lot of options to buy groceries.

Kefalos has the privilege of having several bays and beaches that can satisfy many different needs. From calm and sandy beaches to ones with wind and waves where young and old can enjoy playing with the waves and can also try bodyboarding with the waves. The beautiful Kefalos bay with about 25 km of sandy beaches is a paradise for jogging and water sports as well. Especially for windsurfing it is an ideal spot suited for everybody independent of skills, whether it is an advanced or amateur surfer. The calm shallow waters, the enchanting surrounding landscape and the famous winds Meltemia, which are the prevailing winds of the summer months in the Aegean Sea and are considered to be pleasantly cool and always bring bright weather and good, clear visibility, make Kefalos ideal for windsurfers as well as for those who do not find the great heat pleasant. But also for small children there are many places where they can enjoy bathing and playing in the shallow, slowly deepening sea. For those who would like to explore even more beaches, there are many other options that can be reached by car, motorbike, bicycle or even on foot. These means of transport can be hired anywhere in the area or directly from the airport.

To the west, about 6 km away, there are the beaches of Kata, Cavo Paradiso, Agios Mamas and Agios Theologos, beach, with fine sand beautiful small bays and at times high waves when it is windy, a tavern which is located at the seaside give you the unique chance to eat and enjoy the marvelous sunset. In the north the small natural harbour Limionas is worth a visit, where many fishing boats, also from the neighbouring island of the sponge divers Kalymnos, dock. A unique fish-tavern rewards its guests with a wonderful view of the open sea and the neighbouring islands of Kalymnos and the islet of Pserimos, especially during sunset. Close to the tavern there are many small beaches and rocky bays. For people who prefer waves to the calm sea, the 10 km long natural beach Kochylari from Limionas to the east is recommended. North of Zini, is found the 10 km long beach Almyros, particularly attractive thanks to wild cedar-trees and fragrant bushes. South of Lathra, there is St. Ioannis monastery, surrounded by plane trees. On August 28, day of the Saint, there is an all night long festival. An early morning or sunset walk to the Monastery will be daylight.

Very close to the apartments are Palatia, with ancient remains and a classical Odeon. In the south of Sini in Aspri Petra, visitors can enjoy a paleolithic cave. Also, 2 km away, the ruined Roman basilica of St. Stefanos overlooks the tiny offshore island of Kastri. Kefalos, the nearest village (about 1,2 km away), boasts a medieval castle and colorful windmills. From the apartments Sini you can also go on beautiful hikes. Through a pine forest you can walk southwest to the beaches of Kata, Agios Theologos, Cavo Paradiso and Agios Mamas. The romantic little monastery of Agios Ioannis, beautifully situated on the south slope of the Lathra mountains, can be discovered from the Sini Apartments in a south-westerly direction. If you feel like hiking, you can walk the approx. 6 km long and multifarious route to the monastery on foot. In addition, there is a variety of hiking possibilities both in Kefalos itself and in other places on the island such as the peacock forest Plaka and on the mountain Dikaios for example.
