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.

Sweet little house

5 of 5
We were very happy to rent this cottage for 2 weeks. This sweet little house was perfect for us! It is beautifully decorated in country style. Very clean, and the owners were so helpful trying to make our stay comfortable. Local taverns - Panos and Black cat - had great food, we really enjoyed it. Spartia beach is fantastic and is only few steps from the cottage. We intend to return to Kefalonia and we will definitely choose to stay in this cute cottage again!

So good this is our 3rd visit

5 of 5
Situated in a quiet cul de sac of similar de luxe properties. Secure front drive accommodates a couple of cars. Entrance to large open plan kitchen, lounge, diner. Double doors lead to fabulous terracing with quality sofas and steps down to large pool with ample sun loungers. Terrific logia with large dining table and chairs with vast BBQ. 4 bedrooms....Main top floor has a new wet room, 2 further large bedrooms with another having sofas so seems to be a studio. House bathroom. Everything is spotless. The villa is looked after by cleaner, pool attendant, gardener. Beautiful beach with bar and sun loungers/umbrellas just 200 yards stroll down quiet lane. 15 minutes easy drive to Argostoli and major supermarkets. Highly recommended.
