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.

Beautiful apartments, wonderful location.

5 of 5
The pictures don't lie, these apartments are beautiful. We travelled to Kefalonia in early April and do stayed in Tangerine apartment at the Eucalyptus complex. Reggina the complex manager welcomed us on our arrival and took us to our apartment, we were presented with a welcome pack consisting of fresh bread, wine, fruit juice, biscuits and wonderful home made jams, this was a lovely touch as we didn't have to rush out straight away for supplies. Reggina then told us about the local area, and, as we were so early in the season told us of some restaurants that were open, and that she had spoken to Eugine the local supermarket owner and told him to keep an eye out for us. The view from the balcony is amazing, looking out to the island of Ithaca and the bay of Sami. The room was cleaned twice during our week with fresh towels and bedding on both occasions, the cleaning ladies do a terrific job, everywhere was spotlessly clean. These apartments are very well appointed with everything you need for a self catering holiday, comfortable beds were a big bonus too. The location is excellent with great beaches literally on the doorstep and great restaurants close by. It's also the people who make this place special from the everyday helpful Reggina to the cleaning ladies and the hardworking maintenance men and gardeners who were all working so hard to get everything ready for the new season, we thank you all for youth kindness and making sure we felt welcome. We liked it so much we have booked to return in the summer and can't wait to see all our new friends again.
