A great villa by the beach

  • 4 of 5

If you want to be close to the beach in Skala, this is a good choice. The beach is 100 metres away. The villa is comfortable and well-equiped. There is a good supermarket and a cafe/bar even closer. The town is a five minute walk. The owners and the housekeepers are very helpful. We all enjoyed staying there.

Perfect Villa in the heart of Skala

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here in a June 2017 with my wife, mother and her husband for 7 nights. Having stayed at the 9 Muses hotel twice before I knew the local area but wanted the independence of staying in a Villa. This place was absolutely ideal and was the base for a perfect holiday.

Supermarket - 1 min walk

Nearest bar - 2 min walk

Beach -2 min walk

Nearest restaurant - 2 min walk

Town - 5 min walk

The Villa was clean, spacious and had everything we needed and more. The outside area is also large and private with a lovely pool and views to the beach. It also has a brilliant air con system which kept the property cool which is essential when the sun is hot.

We hired a car from Greekstones who were good and dropped off and collected the car at the Villa. The island is as beautiful as I remembered and Skala hasn't changed much in 15 years which is a plus. The restaurants are all of a high quality and couldn't fault any of them.

Lovely island and a terrific villa.

Villa superb. Everything you require in the villa. The hosts were brilliant nothing to much trouble. Pool and surrounding outside facilities were great. Would highly recommend this villa for a relaxing holiday. It's a short walk to all the taverners and shops with a scenic walk along the beach. Would most certainly return

Relaxing, Comfortable, well equipped Villa.

  • 5 of 5

The details advertised were true to their word and match the actual villa exactly. The Villa itself had everything you would need for a very comfortable stay. The pool was perfect even though it was deep at both ends and the sunbeds with towels were very comfortable. The location was ideal, with a good sized supermarket around the corner, the sea in view from the villa and all the bars, shops, restaurants, tavernas all within walking distance from the villa. Skala is a lovely place, laid back but busy enough with enough variety of eating places and bars to go somewhere different every day/evening.

Mel and Glenn are the perfect hosts and when I read the other reviews before arriving I knew exactly then why other people had written what they had. They were extremely helpful nothing was any trouble and they look after their villa extremely well. I would return without a doubt to Skala and to this villa. So thanks for making our holiday a very pleasurable one.

Wonderful villa, perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

Villa Polyxeni is the perfect villa for a wonderful holiday in Skala. The villa is well equipped, well maintained and perfectly located to walk into the main part of Skala town.

Mel and Glenn are wonderful hosts, they are on hand if you need them, and provide great customer service.

We have stayed in Skala a few times and this is one of the best villas, with everything you need for a great family holiday.

Restaurants and bars are within a few minutes walk, and there are plenty of great choices. The beach is also just a few minutes walk away, with wonderful clear water, safe for children and plenty of drinks and snacks provided by the restaurants close by.

We will definitely return, Kevin, Gill & Henry, Hertfordshire

The villa is situated approximately 30 metres from the beach, approximately 100metres from the nearest taverna and mini-market and less then 5 minutes walk from the rest of the mini markets, cafe bars and gift shops of Skala village. The famous beach of Mounda and kaminia are only an approximate 10 minute drive from the villa and well worth a visit.

Further Details:

Skala has a variety of restaurants, bars, supermarkets, bakeries, a pharmacy, local gift shops and car hire motor bike/scooter rentals. Tavernas spread along the coast road towards the villa. On the beach you will find a water sports centre which has an abundance of water entertainment from water skiing to boat hire. The Glass Bottom Boat excursions are a must.
