Luxury Skala Holidays

A flavour of rural Greece


Surrounded by pine trees and backed by scenic mountain landscapes, Skala is one of Kefalonia's best-kept secrets.

This fishing village turned holiday resort has the flavour of rural Greece, with an old town filled with a smattering of whitewashed tavernas, olive presses and a pretty, bell-topped chapel. Little craft shops selling hand-painted ceramics, jewellery and souvenirs let you take a piece of Skala home, and are lovely for a wander.

A long sand-and-shingle beach is on hand, while Potamaki Beach is just a couple of miles away. It's a famous conservation area for rare loggerhead turtles – you can even take turtle-watching trips to observe them.

A mini train service is a great way to get around and sightsee, and Skala’s seafood and ouzo stocked tavernas are where to rub shoulders with locals in the evenings.

Flight Information

Flight time from the UK to Kefalonia is around 3 hours. 

Transfer Time

Transfer time from Kefalonia airport to Skala is approximately 40 minutes.

When to go

Like the rest of the Greek islands, Kefalonia promises near-perfect beach weather. July and August are when the mercury reaches its peak, with temperatures often reaching the low 30s. For something a little cooler, you can still enjoy plenty of sunshine and temperatures in the early to mid-20s in May and October.

Visa Information

Currently visas are not required for UK citizens travelling to Greece


In Greece, a service charge will be included in the bill at restaurants and bars. Much like the UK, an additional tip is not required, although is appreciated for particularly good service. It is common to round off the amount when paying cash, particularly with wait staff and taxi drivers.

Introduction to languages

The official language of Greece is Greek.  English is widely spoken, too, so getting by is easy.
