We hired all three villas for our stay. All the villas are lovely, hiring all three felt like having our own holiday park! Villa décor was welcoming and appropriate. All the necessary kitchen utensils, pots, pans and bowls available at the villas. Pools are maintained daily and floors mopped and bins changed daily. There is a path down to sea which is fairly rocky and uneven and a small bit of clambering across rocks to reach the sea but its worth it! The sea is gorgeous, so clear and blue! Villa C is lovely with an interrupted view to the sea. Only downside to villa C was no mosquito nets/shutters. Otherwise a perfect villa in a beautiful location. Skala is a 5-10 minute drive away or 20-30 minute walk. Poros is a 15minute drive away. Both towns have some lovely restaurants, shops and café. There are various small and large beaches and coves nearby to the villas all very beautiful! The owner of the villa is easily contactable by email or phone, throughout the booking process and stay the owner was very helpful and informative. I would recommend getting a car if you stay in Kefalonia for ease of getting around, there are some truly beautiful places which shouldn't be missed! I will definitely recommend these villas to all friends and family!
About Kefalonia in general...
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!
About Skala area in particular...
Villa Brio Exclusive is located at a focal point on the coast from Skala to Poros.
In a few steps from the villas, the guests can enjoy diving into turquoise waters!
Just 150m away there is a 5* resort, which offers amongst other high quality spa treatments & diving courses.
Also, in 200m the guests can step down to a wonderful secluded small beach to enjoy crystal clear sea quite in private!
In about 1km from the villas, on the coast to Skala, you find restaurants with great sea views while in 200m further a music bar, a pastry shop & a super market.
From that point to the centre of Skala village, the coast develops busier providing a great variety of restaurants, bars, food shops, car/bike rentals, pharmacy, medical centre, ATM etc.
At that point also, the impeccable beauty of the famous long sandy beach of Skala begins & keeps for the next 5km, offering unlimited options from water sports, scuba diving & boat hire to lazy sunbathing & naturist bay... Walking and cycling along the coast is also a superb experience.
Tennis is available in nearby hotels, while mountain biking, horse riding, sea kayak and trekking within 30 minutes drive.
Finally, not to forget that in Poros, 9km from the complex in the opposite direction, there is a port from where you can sail around the island!
