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. Holidays in Skala are extremely popular and this has led to a great resort having developed with a well-established tourist infrastructure. This means there is a good choice of self catering accommodation available in Skala with many properties boasting their own private swimming pool.

We loved the infinity pool and being able to relax on the patio areas around the villa. The villa and gardens have been finished to a very high standard - the owners had thought of everything to make this an ideal holiday spot.

Liz the owner had supplied really great directions and the roads were really easy to navigate. The villa is stunningly beautiful, the views are just amazing and you are perched on the side of the hill overlooking the village of katelios. The villa has everything that you would need , a proper home from home. Liz has catered for everything. The beds are the comfiest I have ever slept on. There is a good range of tavernas in the village and it is a good 8 minute walk down, however well worth it. The walk back up is steep, the last 100 yards, but ideal to walk over the food you will have eaten. Found a beautiful beach called agia Thomas which was about a 20 min drive back towards the airport. A beautiful beach, not big, but has a taverna where you wil find the oldest cook/bartender/waitress on the island !!. This is a villa I would definitely recommend to anyone if you are looking for a secluded but not isolated retreat with stunning views and everything you would need within the villa.

The villa is almost brand new and very well appointed, mixing modern furnishings with a wonderful warm atmosphere. We visited in autumn and although we were lucky with great weather for most of our stay, we did have one rainy day when we got to make the most of the comfy sofas and excellent relaxed lighting to while away the hours reading. The basement games/sitting room is perfect for larger groups where the kids want their own space and the covered veranda was a godsend for those of us who wanted to enjoy the amazing views but need shade from the sun. The views are to die for and the pool was fantastic (although it is unheated so was a bit bracing this late in the season). With the restaurants and bars of Skala, Katelios and Old Skala within a few minutes drive and three lovely beach areas on hand too we were spoilt for choice for things to do day and evening. The wifi connection was very good and the only item of equipment we had an issue with was the dishwasher, but the maintenance teams response was prompt. We loved it so much we will be returning.
