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.

Exceptional villa with amazing views and infinity pool

5 of 5
Have just returned from Villa Asteri which exceeded our expectations. It is in a tranquil location with an amazing view from the terrace. Our only problem was choosing which of the multiple outdoor areas to take in the amazing view. The pool is great and the villa is immaculately clean with cleaning service twice a week. The welcome pack was fabulous. It is an easy short drive to Skala and Kaminia/mounda beach. You will definitely not be disappointed booking this villa. The view of stars at night time was also great and how we ended each day of our holiday.

Amazing!

5 of 5
Stunning views, lovely location and perfect weather. Stayed for only a week but we've enjoyed the peaceful and tranquillity of the villa. Basking in the sun, taking a dip into a the pool, reading or just chilling on the terrace with a glass of gin & tonic! Thank you Antonio for letting us discovering Kefalonia. Will be back soon!
