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.

Stunning Villa

5 of 5
Recently stayed at the Villa Ambeli for a holiday as part of a family wedding in Skala. We found the property exactly as advertised. Beautiful location on the hillside with stunning views down to Skala and the sea. Very well equipped throughout, we spent most of our time relaxing in and around the pool and patio area, listening to the crickets by day and cicada's by night. Dark sky area meant moon rise and stargazing with the telescope was a new experience but well worth it. We tried both restaurant's recommended by Craig, Keralia taverna and Mikelatos and the food and service was excellent. Definitely the best Kleftico on the island.
