About the Owner

I grew up in Skala and lived there with my family until it was time for me to London for my studies, back in 2007. I now live and work in London while assisting my parents with the villas as much as I can.

My job is to help with the bookings because unfortunately they don't speak English. What they lack in English fluency though, they more than make up in their enthusiasm and love for the properties and their visitors.

We were very impressed with the villa and its location

  • 5 of 5

We were very impressed with Kefalonia, a very green and pretty island. The resort of Skala had everything that we needed to have a good holiday including sandy beaches, boat trips, restaurants and easy access to supermarkets. The villa is located on the hillside with stunning views of the sea and of Zante. The villa was v comfortable, safe and private. The owners, Anti and Spiros were very friendly and v helpful. The weather was perfect. We would definitely recommend staying here.

Everything was perfect from the moment we arrived. Beautiful villa equipped with everything we needed. Fabulous pool and stunning view. Such a warm welcome from Spiros and his wife. They made us so welcome and reguarly delivered fresh lemons, tomatoes from their garden. The villa is gorgeous we will definitely come back. We loved every minute of our stay at Villa Apollo this is one of the best villas we have stayed at.

We stayed at Poseidon for 7 weeks. Absolutely fantastic holiday, the villa was perfect and Spiros and Anti the best hosts you could ever ask for. We have been going to Kefalonia for 21 years and this was the best visit. Shame we can't afford to stay there every time!

Villa Apollo in Kefalonia near Skala

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to this particular set of 3 villas and once again we were captivated by their wonderful location. The Villa Apollo is very well appointed with good size bedrooms, living accomodation and ample parking. The villa is clean, well maintained and regularly serviced. It has a lovely garden and swimming pool with a fantastic outlook down to the sea.The owners are attentive and offer every assisatnce but are not intrusive. The villa is a 2 minute drive from a beautiful sandy beach ideal for children. Skala, the closest main town, is a 5 minute drive where you will find a large selection of excellent restaurants serving a wide varity of food and a few bars. There are a number of mini marts close by as well as in Skala so buying food for the self catering holiday is simple.

We have recommended this villa to a number of our friends and family without hesitation and we hope to return again very soon.

From the Owner

My father built these villas and has poured all his love and effort in them. My mother and he are the ones looking after the complex all year round, taking care of the visitors and ensuring they have an unforgettable stay. Enjoy the magnificent views of the Ionian see from the comfort of your private pool. Walk to the great sandy beach of Kaminia and maybe catch a glimpse of the Caretta Caretta turtle laying its eggs! Or simply relax in the garden, lay down in the hammock and enjoy a glass of our complimentary wine, from grapes grown in the very property you are staying at. Far enough from the noise of the nearby town in an idyllic location, while still being close enough to the beach, these villas are perfect both for a family holiday and a romantic getaway.
