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 the pool was just what we needed after a hot journey. A Car is a must as the villa is very secluded - but this is exactly what we wanted, privacy, peace and quiet - the views from every room in the villa, even the bathroom of the sea are simply fantastic as is the sunrise. We could not fault the very well appointed villa at all, would definitely reccommend to friends and family and would very much like to return All in all we had a five start holiday Thank you Katie!
