Villa Location
Set on the lower, south facing slopes of the Old village of Skala, Villa Eboros has panoramic views of the bay and across the sea to the neighbouring island of Zante. The resort of Skala with its long expanse of sand/shingle beach and selection of shops and tavernas is just a short drive away.

Location features

Local markets and shopping

Skala has a selection of mini-markets, a small supermarket, a couple of bakeries, a butchers and assorted gift shops. Most are located on the main street running from the top of the village down to the beach road.


Bars and restaurants

Skala and offers a selection of bars, tavernas and restaurants serving local and international cuisine. Katelios also has a few bars and seaside tavernas in the centre of the village and on the waterfront providing the perfect setting for an evening meal.


Beaches

Skala is famous for its long sand and shingle beach with its back drop of lush pine trees. If you are prepared to walk a little there are lots of secluded beaches and coves to discover. Why not jump on one of the daily cruises or glass bottom boat trips and spot one of the loggerhead turtles that frequent Kefalonia? The sandy bays of Mounda and Kaminia are also within a 10 minute drive. Kaminia Beach is protected due to it being a nesting ground for Loggerhead Turtles and night-time 'turtle watches' are organised.


Family fun

Take advantage of some of the water sports available on Skala Beach, ranging from jet skiing, kayaking and inflatable doughnuts. If you want to explore more of this stunning coastline then you can hire a boat, pack a picnic and find some undiscovered bays.


Places of interest

Home to the remains of a Roman villa constructed in the 3rd century AD, Old Skala Village is packed full of history and culture. Take a boat tour through the stunning Melissani Lake, a natural cave system on the east of the island, where sunlight shines through the roof of the cavern causing the water beneath to light up. The cave is reachable within an hour's drive.


Other activities

Mount Aios National Park is home to the highest peak in Kefalonia at 1628 metres above sea level. Getting to the top is well worth the effort with panoramic views across to Ithaca and Zante. The best time to walk is spring and autumn when the temperatures are cooler and you can enjoy the wild flowers.


Remember...

Every villa comes with its own manual, complete with details of the best restaurants, taxis, local amenities and activities. And of course, our reps are on hand to make sure you love your holiday more. If you need any advice or tips on the local area, they will be more than happy to help.

Activities and things to do
Activity
Boat Hire and Watersports
Hiring a boat is a fantastic way of exploring Kefalonia's coastlines. A licence is not required, nor do you need previous experience as novices will receive introductory instruction in boat handling before being let loose.

Watersports, yacht charter (skippered or bareboat), scuba diving and riding are also available.

Activity
Loggerhead Turtle Sanctuary
There is a protected nesting site at Kefalonia called Kaminia beach. The sea Turtle Protection Society work hard and long to protect the fascinating creatures when they come in to nest on the beach. The females heave and tug themselves across the beach to find a nesting site digging holes and laying small round eggs. An average nest would have 120 eggs and once they are safely covered with warm sand the female returns to the water. Some females will lay as many as four times during the nesting season and the eggs take about two months to hatch. The baby turtles dig their way out at night and head instinctively for the sea. This natural pattern can be disrupted by noise and lights. Sometimes the body clock in the baby turtles goes away and they pop out during the day. If you see a turtle its best not to touch it as its essential to their survival that they make their own way to the sea. The Marine Turtle Project was set up some years ago to observe and record the nesting female turtles on the beaches near to the villages of Skala and Ratzakli on the south-eastern tip of the island. This project has continued to this day and incorporated a conservation programme to promote the protection of the beaches where these creatures lay their eggs. Just outside Katelios you will find a little old schoolhouse which has been transformed and is now the base for The Katelios Group for the Research and Protection of Marine and Terrestrial Life. The group was founded in 1994 and consists mainly of local people with an interest in the long term future of Kefalonia
Activity
Agios Giorgios Castle
The medieval castle of Agios Georgios is situated near the village of Peratata, on a 320m hill. The castle was built in the 13th century to fortify the island's old capital which was housed here until 1757 AD. The castle owes its name to the large church of Agios Georgios, which is situated in the region.

The castle, along with the island, fell in succession into the hands of the Byzantines, the Franks, the Turks and the Venetians. On 24 December 1500, after a persistent battle with the Venetians, the Spanish and the people of Kefalonia, the castle was liberated from the Turks.

The severe damage to the buildings led to a restoration supervised by the mechanic Tsimaras, which lasted for four years. Until the earthquake in 1636, the castle thrived and housed storage rooms, a hospital, barracks, private residencies and a prison in which the more liberal people of Kefalonia were kept, whom the current conquerors considered dangerous.

The Castle's entire surface area is 16,000 square metres, and the walls are 600 m. long and 1,015 m. high. The three ramparts face Argostoli, the East and Peratata, respectively and includes loopholes, observatories and cannon positions. Inside the Castle, its possible to gaze at the tower called "Old Fortress" as well as part of the walls and underground arche. There is, in addition the throne of the Venetian Lord and a catholic church, where the nobles of Kefalonia were buried.
Activity
Horse Riding
The nearest riding schools are located near Sami and Lixouri where you can learn to ride, improve your skills or simply enjoy yourself. There are mountain trails and beach riding to swimming with the horses.

Activity
Glass Bottom Boat
Based in the Southern resort of Skala, "Nautilus" is a specially constructed boat of high standards. Due to these high standards there is little movement in the boat, which is absolutely necessary because of the glass bottom. The possibility to watch the seabed, to view the rocky coast or to cruise the Ionian Sea waters at a speed of up to 30 knots, feeling the breeze and the sea very close will ensure a pleasant cruise.

Beautiful villa in an excellent location.

Jade Barakat, 09-Aug-2015

Charming and rustic villa. Very impressive from the outside. Furnishings simple, but equipped with everything you need. Absolutely loved the peaceful and tranquil location and will return to the area next year, enjoyed seeing the goats trot past the villa each day! The pool and outstanding views were without a doubt the best part. The villa is only a short drive down to Skala which had a great selection of restaurants and the beach is gorgeous too. Our rep Arminda was lovely and incredibly helpful. Overall we had a wonderful holiday and could have happily stayed for a second week!

We were very satisfied with our holiday at Villa Eboros. We were very impressed with the information pack supplied by Nicole, which was very helpful and far exceeded our expectations, as did the villa in general. Nicole visited us and was very nice and helpful with information regarding the area and island in general. We had a lovely holiday and would definitely book another similar holiday with Villa Plus. Thank you.
