About the property

Châteaux d'Ionienne complex

Villa Apollo, Poseidon and Hermes are located in a beautiful location in Skala Village just 500 meters from Kaminia beach, the famous sandy beach of the Caretta Caretta Turtle. The complex is just 40 min from the island’s International Airport (direct flights from UK/EU) and 35 min from island`s main port Sami (ferries from Italy via Patra - mainland Greece). A few minutes away there are restaurants, bars, food shops, super market, bakery, pharmacy, local gift shops, car/bike rentals. Walking and cycling along the coast is a superb experience. Tennis is available in nearby hotels, while mountain biking, horse riding, sea kayak and trekking within 30 minutes drive. The villa measures 140 m2 on a plot of 7400 m2. The villa has a private pool and a children's play area.

About Philip

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.

Philip purchased this villa in 2007

Why Philip chose Elios Proni

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.

Superb

  • 5 of 5

The hosts were amazing from the moment we arrived. Nothing was too much trouble for them, and the villa was kept to a very high standard. The pool and gardens were great, and the views from here were superb. Located a little out of town, but no hardship, as a walk is always good before eating. And the taxi's were plentiful and reasonable. Also they were easy to get, as an English speaking number is available to call. Overall the two weeks we had were excellent, and we hope to be back in the near future. Thanks to Antigoni and Spiro for looking after us, and to Philip for the use of his beautiful villa.

Brilliant villa, terrific views and stunning island

  • 5 of 5

The property was ideal – spacious, lovely pool and fantastic sea view. Although there are two other villas nearby it felt really private, with lots of trees and greenery. Housekeepers Ante and Spiros (who built the villa – impressive!) kept it really tidy and refreshed the towels every few days. We tried out lots of different beaches but probably our favourite was Kaminia, just a 5-minute drive from the villa. Scala is just a 10-minute drive away with lots of great restaurants and bars, as well as a large beach. A car is essential, but then it's easy to make lots of day trips to other parts of the island without spending all day in the car. I highly rate this villa and dealing with the owner was easy and straight forward. All in all, the whole family loved it.

A fabulous villa, in a brilliant location!

  • 5 of 5

It was our third visit to this wonderful villa! We always receive such a lovely warm welcome from the owners, the villa is always spotless, and the spacious rooms and fabulous pool make it such a comfortable and brilliant stay! It is a short drive to Skala which has all the things you need, or you can simply head the short distance down the road beside the villa to the lovely beaches. The beaches surrounding the villa are brilliant for kids as they are shallow into the sea, they are not crowded at all, and have a couple of authentic Taverna's close by! A truly enjoyable and memorable stay as always.

Amazing

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful in everyway. Fabulous accomodation, amazing pool, beautiful views. Perfect location. We love Greece and inparticular Kefalonia. The hosts were perfect, friendly and caring. The villa is brilliant. We were 2 familes with 4 children from 5-11 years and they loved it too. The play area, table tennis, swings...I loved the sunloungers...

Thank you.

We will be back...I am sure.
