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.

stunning proprty in stunning surroundings

5 of 5
We stayed at Villa Asteri in Old Skala from 16th September for two weeks.The villa is lovely with everything we wanted and was exactly as described on the website. Lovely kitchen and living room with incredibly comfy furnitre, However we spent all the time outside. The main outside area has to be the best ever with two enormous settees and matching chair. There are also other areas to sit and enjoy the stunning views and the extensive garden are full of flowering shrubs. The pool was lovely and it was great to have walk-in steps. The villa was exceptionally clean, the maids friendly but un obtrusive and the owner, Michael, dealt with any queries quickly. The Kaleri Taverna which is a short walk up the hill was a real bonus. Thank you so much, we hope to come back. Villa Asteri is by far the best villa in all respects that we have stayed in on Kefalonia (our fourth visit) and would recommend it to anyone wanting a peaceful holiday in beautiful surroundings but close to the resort of Skala. Eileen and Paul Jackson.
