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.

Exactley as advertised the Villa was a perfect location for relaxing so much so it's not easy tearing yourself away to go and do any sightseeing(Captain jerry's in Katelios for the sea bass and red snapper is a must) The area is quiet which is a must for us and the view probably the best we have ever had on many of the Greek islands we have visited. We went into Skala 3/4 times but spent most of the time away from the Villa in Katelios especially for the lunches and to top up on essentials for the Villa. A top notch holiday, we will definatly return. Many thanks to all who looked after the Villa durring our stay.

It has three good size bedrooms all beautifully decorated and a lovely comfortable layout downstairs as well as impressive outdoor space in which to relax. A hundred yards up from the villa and you are in the amongst the many wonderful bars and restaurants that Skala has to offer, it is also a short walk to the beach and twenty yards to a lovely pool bar which we used regularly. We had such a lovely relaxing time in Skala and the time spent in this beautiful property was a major factor to this. A special thanks to Galia who was always available to help and advise us and also to the owners who made everything so easy for us from start to finish. Hopefully we will return for another holiday here and in this fantastic villa.

                                                                                                After many years of traveling around the Greek Islands both myself and my wife had finally found our perfect greek getaway the island of Kefallonia. We had stayed in all of the top hotels in the resort of Skala and really thought it could not get any better, how wrong we were.One day five years ago we had decided to do a little more exploring of the island and in particular we were intrigued as to why at certain times of the day we could see sunlight being reflected from halfway up the hillside , there were obviously some properties up there and so one afternoon we set of exploring. First off we realised it was coming from the old town of Skala and that would be our first destination to explore.In the the old town of Skala there are several villas , all very private but one of them caught our eye and so our love affair with Villa Eros began.The next year we flew out from England willing our plane to get us there as fast as possible , i should say at this point that we had already been won over by the photos we had viewed on line of the property.Ok that's the introduction,i hear you say "Get on with it , whats it like" On arrival there are a set of gates to the property which lead up a drive , at the top a set of stairs which then lead to the outside of the Villa . Our first impression was wow! This is truly a unique hideaway for couples , from the large secluded pool area with its own private infinity pool to the wonderful uninterrupted views of the bay of Skala which stretch out in front of you, it is totally private with the nearest other properties at least 200 m away so to all of you sun lovers out there if an all over tan is your preference go ahead, no one can see you and it is easy to forget when you are sunbathing or cooling off in the pool that there are any other properties nearby at all, The sunbeds tables etc are all of top quality and i cannot stress how great that pool is! Now to the inside, as you step through the sliding glass door you enter a large living room very tastefully furnished with a kitchen off to one corner , a few stairs lead up to the bedroom and main bathroom which again is delightful , everything is perfect at this villa and we have had many happy holidays there , it is basically a perfect romantic retreat from the stresses of normal life and both myself and my wife absolutely love the Villa , we really cannot fault it.It is always in top condition and very clean and welcoming.
