Villa Korfos, 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 Korfos, beautifully finished and designed to be ideal for...Villa Korfos, 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 Korfos, 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. There is a sofa bed in the larger bedroom for those who require a room with two beds - maybe for teenagers or children. A neat garden and two descending flights of approximately eight steps remove the front of Villa Korfos from the roadside parking area. Inside, the open plan living room is uncluttered with modern clean lines with the many windows revealing 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. Opposite the sitting area, the smart kitchen has plenty of light wood cupboards topped with shiny granite and is perfectly equipped for holiday catering, with dishwasher, large fridge freezer, microwave and electric oven with ceramic hob. There's a convenient wood dining table and six neat leather chairs but since most meals will be taken outside, there's a convenient door to the garden. Just across the lawn and beyond the pool, the outside table and chairs has what is probably the best dining spot in the whole of Skala, between the beautiful private swimming pool and the waves breaking on the rocky coast below. The ground floor double bedroom has a sea view window and an ensuite shower room with walk in shower leading from an inner hallway. French doors lead to a side terrace and, just a few steps to the pool, this will be the first choice for those who enjoy an early morning swim. Both first floor double bedrooms have en-suite 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 Korfos has a view second to none in this south east corner of Kefalonia set on the rising 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 pleasure 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 become 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. There is also a choice between two excellent tavernas. Ten minutes walk further brings you to a patisserie (great croissants for breakfast) and a mini market.

About the neighbourhood
Skala , Blue Flag Beach Blue Flag International An exceedingly pleasant and laid back family resort with an excellent choice of tavernas and bars, the village of Skala 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.
Getting around
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. For a little more privacy, pretty little pebbly beaches can be found along the coast road running north towards Poros 12 kms away. Here you’ll find a pretty harbour in a sheltered bay where pine forested hillsides rise dramatically out of the sea. In the other direction, sandy Kaminia beach, 3 kms to the west of the village, is one of the nesting grounds for loggerhead turtles.
