Villa Sakos, Skala , Kefalonia 
Free wifi

 

We fell in love with Skala the first time we visited, with its great beach, beachside tavernas and laid back atmosphere, we just knew we had to have some villas there. We were shown many but none were quite ‘Freelance’ style.

 

Then by chance, whilst chatting with Thomas, the owner of the Symposium Restaurant  (a great setting overlooking the beach, and the best shrimp saganaki ever) he said he knew of just the Villa and to meet him in the morning. We duly met up and trundled off  in his jeep.

 

We were shown  not one but three villas, all with amazing sea views, great pools and smart interiors. We signed them up there and then, knowing we had the best three villas in Skala. Job done !

 

Villa Sakos, beautifully finished and designed to be ideal for families or groups of up to  three couples,  each double bedded bedroom has either a bathroom or shower room en-suite.

 

Inside, the open plan living area has modern clean lines throughout with the many windows showing  views of the garden, the pool and, of course, the sea. The sitting area is furnished with a deep brown leather sofa and two occasional chairs and there’s a plasma TV and DVD player.

 

At the far end is the smart kitchen, where an L shaped run of light wood cupboards is topped with shiny granite and perfectly equipped for holiday catering, with dishwasher, large fridge freezer, microwave and  electric oven with ceramic hob. 

 

There’s a wood dining table and six neat leather chairs  but probably the favoured dining spot will be on the other side of the French doors outside, on the covered sea view terrace, sunny in the morning, shaded from the midday sun and furnished with a second table and chairs.  

 

On the  ground floor  is the first of the double bedrooms, with  French doors its private  terrace,  just a few steps to the pool.  This will be the first choice for those who like an early morning swim. There is, next to the bedroom  a  shower room with smart walk in shower. 

 

Both double bedrooms on the first floor have ensuite full bathrooms with a shower over the bath. They also each  have a good sized sea view balcony furnished with  table and chairs. The largest bedroom has plenty of space for the sofa bed, which can be made up on request if two beds are required.

 

Outside, the private swimming pool is set in lawned gardens with plenty of space for the sun beds. There is a barbecue on the terrace at the front of the Villa, which catches the afternoon and evening sun and has mountain views.

 

Villa Sakos has a view second to none in this south east corner of Kefalonia set on a rise in coast line, overlooking the sea where on clear days, you can see right across to the Greek mainland and watch the many ferries, sailing boats and motorised yachts plying their way backwards and forwards.

 

Just pleasantly out of town it’s 1.2 kms  along the coast from the laid back resort of Skala and  a pleasant evening stroll can be followed by a  short taxi ride back.

 

If you’d rather not move even that far from the Villa (perfectly understandable), then within a 5 minute walk there is a lovely little undiscovered pebbly cove with beautiful clear water  and two excellent tavernas. Ten minutes walk further brings you to a patisserie (great croissants for breakfast) and a mini market.

An Amazing Stay
"We had an amazing stay at Villa Sakos! The villa is on a quieter road further up from Skala town centre but still close enough to stroll down to the bars and restaurants. It was peaceful and relaxing, Diane made sure we were happy throughout our stay and the pool area/view of the ocean is incredible! Thanks again!"

Location of Villa Sakos
Skala, Kefalonia

An exceedingly pleasant and laid back family resort with an excellent choice of tavernas and bars, the village of Skala is in the south east of the island. On the outskirts of the village itself a grove of shady pine trees  spreads down towards the beach from the village, and the heady scent of resin is almost intoxicating.

The sandy beach runs 4 kms around the bay so, if you prefer not to use the sunbeds and parasols for hire on the main beach, then you can always find your own space further along the sandy shoreline.

The villa is well appointed and maintained. The pool and sun terrace are excellent with outstanding views of the sea. Everyone in our family group enjoyed our stay and it is suitable for all ages. Very friendly and helpful owners."

Geoff and fam.
Absolutely amazing
"Villa Sakos was absolutely amazing, clean, air conditioned and with excellent facilities. The service received was excellent and Denise our fantastic host was very friendly and full of local knowledge about places to eat and visit. You can expect the most breath taking sea views from almost anywhere in the villa. The pool area was exceptional we spent a lot of time just enjoying doing nothing around it. I would certainly recommend these villas to all our friends."
Alexandra
Perfect location
"The location is Perfect. Especially the view of the sea can relax very well. The entire area is clean and well maintained. If you want to shop, you go about 10 minutes and get everything you need in the supermarket. The guest house care was great - she was there every day and asked if everything was ok. All around a house that is highly recommended."
Alexandra
Haus, das sehr zu empfehlen ist
"Die Kommunikation mit dem Team ist sehr gut. Die Antwort waren immer sehr schnell und präzise. Auch mit der Unterkunft waren wir sehr zufrieden. Die Ausstattung ist prima, auch in der Küche ist alles was man braucht vorhanden. Genügend Gläser, Töpfe, Geschirr, gute Küchenmesser ... usw. Die Lage ist herrlich. Besonders der Ausblick auf das Meer lässt sehr gut entspannen. Die gesamte Anlage ist sauber und gepflegt. Wenn man einkaufen möchte, geht man ca. 10 min und bekommt im Supermarkt alles was man braucht. Die Gästehaus-Betreuung war klasse - Sie war täglich kurz da und hat sich erkundigt, ob alles in Ordnung ist. Rundum ein Haus, das sehr zu empfehlen ist."
Hanna W
