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.

The property is perfect for two and we spent many happy hours enjoying the pool and the views from the terrace. We felt well cared for with comfortable loungers, abundant towels, a welcome pack including cava and home made marmalade and the perfect hosts in Andrew and Jean. Our stay was enlivened by a dramatic storm and a minor earth tremor and all the better for it.
