Ocean View Hotel and Apartments

Nestled in the heart of a picture-perfect Greek village, the Ocean View Hotel and Apartments is as well located as it is pretty. Just a short walk from the beach and a host of bars and restaurants, the on-site facilities are conveniently luxurious, all geared towards guest enjoyment.

A pool terrace, complete with loungers, makes for easy relaxation away from the beach and spacious, unfussy bedrooms allow for less distractions from the amazing local food and town centre sights. As a holiday base, you won’t find much better in the whole of Kefalonia.

Overview of Skala

Despite being the largest in its island group, Kefalonia benefits from a peaceful and uncrowded vibe that suits the natural beauty of the landscape perfectly. This Ionian island has managed to retain its traditional charm and unspoilt appearance, despite being popular with holidaymakers.

Holidays to Kefalonia don’t get much better than Skala. Idyllic in terms of Blue Flag beaches, food that will set your taste buds alight and undulating pine-forest backdrops, it is an incredible blend of old and new that can satiate any and all holiday needs. The Ocean View Hotel and Apartments is in the thick of everything, giving you easy access to every part of the region.

Things to do in Kefalonia

The Ocean View Hotel and Apartments puts you in the heart of Skala and all of its wonderful experiences. With fewer than 500 residents, it is small and intimate, but holidaymakers are welcomed with open arms, especially to the Blue Flag beach that is one of the finest on the whole island. It’s safe, clean and family-friendly, not to mention equipped with some cheerful cafes.

You can’t visit the Greek islands and not indulge in plenty of food. Visiting some of the traditional family restaurants in Skala will open your eyes to a whole new world of flavour and freshness. For a little retail therapy, as well as exercise, walking the coastal path will take you to Poros, which is full of charming little boutiques in its hidden streets.

With local welcomes as warm as the weather, Kefalonia is the ultimate holiday destination for anyone looking for rest, beauty and peace but without the crowds usually associated with such a popular spot. A rare gem that has remained unspoilt, it is on many a bucket list for good reason.

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.
