Guestbook comments from the owner

“Brio amazing villas were the perfect location for both an unforgettable vacation and a one-in-a-million wedding…The property is above and beyond what is pictured on the website. The villas are lovely, spacious, well-kept, and gorgeous… The views and outdoor areas are outstanding and worth the trip alone. The sea is crystal clear and lovely to swim from the beach to the dock and back again. Views are breathtaking and it was the perfect location for our wedding. Also, with a lovely hostess who had fantastic recommendations and who was quick to answer any and all of our never ending questions. The entire experience was a delight and I would highly recommend it to singles, couples, and families alike”.

Villa 4 Brio Complex Very Family Friendly

  • 5 of 5

We know the Island well and have to stress that although Scala has a great beach we've never used it and the town's food is more commercial than some of the less touristic places. Scala is definitely Brits abroad complete with flabby white bits, that's the only down side it you're looking for an authentic get away.

This Villa is about 2km out of town away from the bucket and spade brigade and entered through a communual gate off the main coast road. You pass by the other Villas and reach what can only be described as the most breath taking sea view from the immaculately kept large lawned gardens and huge panoramic terrace and pool. The Villa is quite small but more than enough space for a family of four with every mod con and very clean, contemporary, air conditioned rooms. The master bedroom has fantastic views and glass windows out onto a balcony - feels like you're on a ship at sea. Big King bed however you share a smallish shower room with the twin bedroom which is very child friendly complete with cartoon character wall stickers overlooking the garden and view to Scala.

Best bit - definitley the outdoor loungers under the canopy poolside - absolute heaven whether it's morning coffee, a break from the sun with a good book or partying in the evening. The way it lights up at night is brilliant. Plus diving off the rocks into the sea, levels from water's edge to 3m above which all the Dads had to have a go at.

Only minor warnings, very slight traffic noise and of course you will hear your neighbours over the very thick hedge if you're up on the house terrace and not down by the pool. Just hope they don't party till 2am. If they do join them. Travel light because the walk down to the Villa with cases involves steps. The kitchen is quite small but has everything for a full on meal prep.

Nearby: 2 very nice restaurants in walking distance and of course the private beach which you can swim round to if you dive off the rocks. A little further down the road is a good super market where you can top up on Sugar Puffs should you need to!

Highly recommended for location and outdoor facilities.

Kefalonia is the largest island in the Ionian Sea and one of the world's most stunning holiday destinations, with charming beaches and high quality resorts.

Highlights not to miss while at the island: the famous beach of Myrtos (amongst top ten in the world!), the natural beauties of Mellisani lake, the deep-green mountain of Ainos where the unique species of wild small horses can be met (if lucky!), the local 'robola' wineries and last - but not least - the traditional meat pie!

You can get to Kefalonia either by plane or car. There are direct flights from UK and other EU countries. Villa Brio is 30 min drive from island`s International Airport. In case you use a car, you take the ferry from Italy to Patra (mainland Greece). Then you take the ferry to Sami (island`s main port), about 3 hours trip. Villa Brio is 35 min drive from Sami port. Another option is to take the ferry from Killini (1 hour drive from Patra) to Poros port, which is just 10 min drive to Villa Brio.

The complex is located at the edge of the famous sandy beach of Skala village, just 1 mile walk to the village center with restaurants, bars, food shops, bakery, pharmacy, medical centre, gift shops, car/bike rentals, ATM etc.

Closest beach just on-site, closest restaurant at 100 m & closest super market at approx.300 m.

Beside the villas, there is a water sports centre, scuba centre & boat hire ...or you can enjoy just walking/cycling along the coast!

Other Activities: Mountain biking, horse riding, sea kayak and trekking are all available within 30 minutes drive.
