The village of Skala is located in the south of the Ionian island of Cephalonia, around 39 km away from the main town on the island, Argostoli. The modern-day village only dates back to the 1956 and this is because the more historic settlement in this area before was levelled by a devastating earthquake in 1953.

The pictures and description of the villa were so accurate, the pool was perfect and the special touches provided by the owners made our first night very special. We had a wonderful time here and would recommend this villa to anyone wanting a truly peaceful and secluded holiday in fabulous surroundings. Have now run out of superlatives. Thanks again

                                                                                                      5 of 5

Although there are two other villas nearby it felt really private, with lots of trees and greenery. Housekeepers Ante and Spiros (who built the villa – impressive!) kept it really tidy and refreshed the towels every few days. We tried out lots of different beaches but probably our favourite was Kaminia, just a 5-minute drive from the villa. Scala is just a 10-minute drive away with lots of great restaurants and bars, as well as a large beach. A car is essential, but then it's easy to make lots of day trips to other parts of the island without spending all day in the car. I highly rate this villa and dealing with the owner was easy and straight forward. All in all, the whole family loved it.
