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.

On arrival driving to the villa was made a lot easier due to the directions given in the paper work provided. When we arrived the first thing we noticed was the amazing view from the terrace, it was all very clean and fresh including the pool which was lovely and clear. The nearest town was a short relaxing drive away where we found nice bars and restaurants. Overall a fantastic villa and holiday, we shall be returning. Highly recommend. Thanks again :)
