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.

Everything we needed for cooking. On arrival there was a welcome pack with a delicious bottle of wine and bread/homemade marmalade which we really appreciated as we arrived late at night. The best thing was how helpful Reggina was, recommending wine to buy, activities (I highly recommend hiring a yellow boat for the day to explore beaches you wouldn't get to see otherwise) and bars/restaurants to visit. Directions from the airport with the pictures were really useful. She even arranged for a chiropractor for my boyfriend when he put his back out!! Thanks Reggina :) The apartment is in a great location for exploring the Island and a short stroll into Sami for restaurants by the waterside (about 20 minutes). We fell in love with Kefalonia and we will definitely be back. Missing our sea view balcony already.
