Make a Holiday Rental Villa in Skala, Greece, Your Home Away From Home

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 village’s name translates from Greek as meaning ‘stairs’ and this is to do with how the old buildings looked as though they formed stairs on the hillside. Unfortunately, these buildings have now been completely lost.

The villa is perfect for a family of four and we can't fault it! Kefalonia is a wonderful holiday destination - gorgeous weather and a great selection of beaches, restaurants and some good options for half or full-day trips (in hire car). Everyone is so friendly. We had such a relaxing time, even the teenagers didn't bicker (helped by having Wi-Fi!). See my previous review (Sep 2015) for more info! Thanks Pete & Ange!
