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

Excellent villa, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We come to Skala regularly and have stayed at this villa several times. It is in a perfect location, set back 100m from the beach and only a short (flat) walk into the centre of town down the well-lit pavement. It is very private and quiet, and has pretty much everything you would ever need. We find that Skala itself improves every year, and similarly Glenn and Mel make changes and additions to improve the villa on a regular basis which make it a very pleasant place to stay. The villa is very clean and well-maintained, and is exactly as shown in the photos.

Glenn and Mel are excellent hosts, extremely flexible, and very helpful with plenty of useful information and advice should you require it. Skala itself is a wonderful little town with many excellent restaurants (we usually stay for two weeks, and can eat in a different restaurant every night). A new beach bar (Ammos) has been built this year just a short distance (2 min walk) from the villa, which proved to be a perfect location for a chilled-out evening drink. They also serve excellent homemade burgers!

Overall we can't fault the villa, its location, or our hosts. We intend to return for many years to come!

What a great villa

  • 5 of 5

I booked this villa two years ago .I have been to Skala four times previously but never stayed in a villa so thought it would be great to go during the euro footie championships.I wasn't disappointed the villa is excellent.The building is well maintained, well kitted out and very well located. It was perfect for what we wanted. Mel and Glenn the owner were brilliant throughout the two year booking process!! and during our stay.Will definitely be booking again just hope nobody beats me to it!!

Perfect villa in perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Excellent and helpful communication from Glenn & Melanie prior to arrival. All questions answered very quickly and offer of help to arrange taxi etc. Both Glenn and Malenie were there to greet us on arrival. The villa was immaculate and the gardens and pool very well kept! There was even 2 big inflatable rings ready and waiting in the pool! They also had a 'welcome pack' containing tea, cofee, milk, biscuits and a bottle of wine. Very thoughtful! The villa is very well equipped. Every item of crockery and cutlery you could need. A bookcase full of books and even DVDs. We found the villa very comfotable and honestly didn't want for a thing. The villa location is just perfect... Few minutes stroll to beach... 10 minute easy stroll to the main street in Skala, which had an array of bars, restaurants and shops. We ate out a lot and didn't have a bad meal. The people are all so friendly and welcoming. There is a supermarket under 10 minutes walk away which we used a lot. There is also a gorgeous beach bar 5 minutes away (Ammos Beach bar) which does lovely food and looks fab. This villa is highly recommended. It really does tick all the boxes. We loved the pool and outside space and lovely view of the sea. Equally the interior provides everything you could want and more. Glenn and Melanie came to see us off at the end of our stay as well. They are a lovely couple and really couldn't do more than they did. We certainly plan to return! 😀
