What a fantastic place and great location for our first visit to kefalonia. Lourdas beach was a perfect location for us with some lovely bars and restaurants right on the doorstep. My only gripe was the lack of somewhere to wash our beach towels which I needed to do several times by hand so perhaps offering a laundrette service would be something to consider for future guests but that said we will be back.
This was our second visit to Skala and first time to Villa Starfish. It is very stylish and obviously brand new. It was easy to find and is just past the San Giorgio hotel which was handy. The villa has lovely sea views and obviously we love Skala as it has everything for our family. We like a quiet taverna with good food and there is a lovely one nearby called Nautilus. Of course the teenagers want burgers so we sent them off to Skala village where they found a noisy bar to keep them occupied. In the daytime we all enjoy staying by the pool or spending all day on Skala beach. The pool was cleaned regularly and Inessa changed the sheets after a few nights and kept the villa clean. The top floor has a couple of bedrooms where we slept and there is a lower ground floor with its own entrance and the lads preferred to sleep there, and it has its own bathroom. The kitchen was not exactly over stocked with equipment but when we needed an oven dish Inessa brought one round. They could do with some more mugs and we would prefer an espresso maker rather than the filter machine especially as there were no filters provided. It is worth hiring a car because there is a lot more to Kefalonia than just Skala and there is so much to see we are planning to come back next year with some friends because we worked out that we could fit 2 more people in for the same price!
