Anassa Hotel Studios

The family-run Anassa Hotel Studios has a great pool scene and is only a few steps away from a white-sand beach.

The views from the hotel are particularly beautiful and you can enjoy the scene from the al fresco whirlpool bath and an open-sided bar that serves smoothies and cocktails.

Every morning, you can grab a continental breakfast by the pool. Later in the day, you can tuck into hearty meals and enjoy the regular barbecue nights. After dark, the pool bar hosts quizzes and live music.

Overview of Skala

Skala has everything you could possibly want from a Greek holiday resort. When you choose Skala for your holiday to Kefalonia, you’ll have easy access to one of the island’s finest beaches, plenty of traditional tavernas and a couple of monuments to the island’s past.

Although Skala is one of Kefalonia’s largest resorts, everything’s within walking distance of the Anassa Hotel Studios. The centre of the village is also compact, so the atmosphere’s lively in the evening when families and friends gather for a beautiful meal after a relaxing day on the sand.

Things to do in Skala

You’re right next to Skala’s long, sandy beach at the Anassa Hotel Studios. Plus, you’re only a five-minute walk away from Skala’s village centre.

The old village was levelled in 1953 and the new village is full of modern amenities. If you’d like to explore the resort’s past, you can still see some of the old village on the outskirts of the resort, along with a Roman villa.

The beach is a great place to spend a relaxing day. There aren’t many water sports, but it has plenty to keep children entertained and the shallow waters mean kids can paddle safely.

Known for its idyllic natural beach, fresh food and pretty surroundings, Skala’s a great place for a Kefalonian adventure.

Resort Summary

Skala is an Ionian Island known for idyllic natural beaches, fresh local food and pretty countryside villages. Offering a Blue Flag beach complete with isolated coves along the coast and pine forest views behind, Skala is the perfect place for snap-happy travellers on cheap holidays to Kefalonia. With year-round sunshine, you can escape the crowds out of season too – a time when holidaymakers come to enjoy hiking and relaxed coastal walks.

Shops and restaurants are centred on the high street, with many serving locally-reared meat, freshly-caught seafood, home-grown veg and island wine and cheese. The village reveals interesting ruins of a Roman Villa dating back from the 3rd century BC as well as making a good base to explore the rest of the island. The nearby port of Poros has ferries to the mainland, or you could travel to Kefalonia’s capital, Argostoli.
