Dionysios Studios and Apartments

The Dionysios Studios and Apartments are a great base for a Greek adventure.

The apartments are incredibly Instagram-friendly. They’re wrapped in peach walls and come with shuttered windows and a terracotta roof. A sheltering ring of flowering plants completes the look.

You can take your pick between studios and apartments. Inside, the decor is simple but smart – think tiled floors and wooden furniture. Each studio and apartment comes with a kitchenette so you can rustle up meals. There’s also a balcony or a terrace where you can dine al fresco and make the most of the sea or countryside views.

Overview of Skala

Skala is an upmarket destination for a holiday to Kefalonia. Most people spend their days on Skala’s three-kilometre-long stretch of sand, but the resort’s also full of sophisticated cocktail bars and beautiful restaurants.

Although Skala is a popular holiday resort, you can still expect touches of traditional Greece. It’s a former fishing village where local fishermen still bring in their hauls, and in the evening, the catch of the day is always available in the authentic tavernas.

Things to do in Skala

At the Dionysios Studios and Apartments, you’re just a five-minute stroll away from the heart of Skala and its peaceful beach.

The Blue Flag beach is undoubtedly the star of the show. It’s a vast stretch of sand and pebbles that’s regularly voted as one of the best on the island. If you head to the southern area, you can even explore the rocky coves.

Up in the hills behind Skala, there’s history to uncover. Take a walk and you’ll come across Roman ruins and a Roman villa. With a stay at the Dionysios Studios and Apartments, you’ll experience Kefalonia at its beautiful best!

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.

The nearby port of Poros has ferries to the mainland, or you could travel to Kefalonia’s capital, Argostoli.
