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.

Beautiful apartment in a great location

5 of 5
We stayed for one week in Apartment Magnolia. It is a comfortable, modern and very tasteful apartment with a very welcome air conditioning unit. It has a huge comfortable bed with great quality bed linen that was changed twice during our stay. A lovely touch I thought. The towels were also changed twice in the week when the friendly cleaners came. The apartments were spotless. There was also a welcome pack for us in the apartment (which again, was a lovely touch). The pool area is also spotless (the water and surrounding the pool). Reggina and her team (Hermione and Simon) were very friendly with useful advice on good local (and some further away) restaurants, beaches and things to do. Most beaches in Kefalonia are pebbly so you will need beach shoes. Sami is a 20 minute beautiful walk away (a lovely walk next to the sea) where you will find lots of restaurants and shops next to the harbour. We would thoroughly recommend Eucalyptus apartments and will definitely be returning at some point in the near future.

Villa Iremia comfort in the sun.

5 of 5
A very comfortable and clean villa that came with glorious views of the sea and mountains. The villa included numerous facilities that made it a home from home in the sun. The excellent pool being the most used. The surrounding villages and beach are welcoming and have a good array of services. A car is a necessity in my opinion. Hope to return one day.
