Hotel Green Bay Kefalonia

About one kilometer away, most of which is along the quiet ocean side road, this is a great choice putting it just outside the town and making it even quieter than other nearby choices.  A small hotel comprising only five small two story buildings, and of course a lovely swimming pool, it rests on the hillside offering great views over the sea. The simply furnished rooms are clean and tidy and offer free aircon and wifi.  As is common in this part of the island the swimming pool uses water pumped directly from the sea giving you the experience of the clear salt water of the Agean, without leaving the safety of the pool!

Walking into the town takes 10 minutes and another 25 minutes will bring you to the restaurants and bars of Sami.
