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.

This however was not a problem as the villa and surroundings more than met the description given on the owners website. Briefly, the villa itself was immaculate, with a high specification modern, clean interior. Exterior was marvellous too, very private with many different areas to enjoy and of course a super pool. Owners provided exceptional service, very genuine and generous - many thanks Elini :-) The town of Agia Effimia is lovely, with a fine range of tavernas and a genuine Greek atmosphere. Locals very warm and welcoming providing for some lovely evenings out. The wider surroundings of Kefalonia are absolutely stunning! Fantastic coastline, super beaches & beautiful countryside. Hope to return some day soon and would gladly recommend this property to others.
