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.

5 of 5
Our three generation family enjoyed a wonderful , comfortable and relaxing stay at this beautiful property. Villa Apollo exceeded our expectations. It is a modern , beautifully located and well equipped property . It was spotlessly clean on arrival and was maintained thus throughout our stay by a lovely local lady. The villa was easily accessible for my 80 year old mother with poor mobility . The pool was lovely and kept clean at all times. Would definitely return here ! Skala Village is 4km away with many restaurants and attractions . The villa is about 5 km from Poros which also has some great restaurants . Near the villa are lots of secluded coves for fantastic swimming and snorkelling. We had to amend our booking initially and Agni Travel were most helpful . They solved minor property issues quickly and checked they had been resolved to our satisfaction . We will be booking with them again . Villa was not as described : it was better !

An outstanding villa with a view to die for

5 of 5
We'd driven by Villa Asteri on a previous visit to Skala (lovely, unspoilt place) and determined to try to book it in the future. It was as wonderful as we had imagined. The owners have thought of everything and it was a beautiful haven on the most lovely, still-unspoilt island. We will return.
