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.

We loved the infinity pool and being able to relax on the patio areas around the villa. The villa and gardens have been finished to a very high standard - the owners had thought of everything to make this an ideal holiday spot.

Dimitris tried his hardest to make our holiday wonderful the villa is serviced regularly by very hard working staff. Will definitely stay again if Dimitris will have us :-)

The apartment was beautiful, spotlessy clean & in the perfect location. Sami the town was only a 20 minute walk away with numerous restaurants, coffee shops, supermarket's etc. The apartment had everything we needed with amazing views right across the bay. Mark the manager couldn't have been more helpful & the cleaning services was superb with linen & towels being changed several times throughout the week. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this apartment to anyone & will definitely be returning there. Thanks again Mark for making our stay there such a pleasant one
