Villa Location
In an elevated position on the south facing slopes of the village of Old Skala, Villa Halazas has wonderful views of Skala bay and across the sea to the neighbouring island of Zante. A haven for countryside lovers with the resort of Skala only 15 minutes' drive away, offering a great selection of bars and tavernas. Beach lovers are also well catered for with a number of excellent sand and shingle bays nearby.

Location features

Local markets and shopping

Skala has a main supermarket on the beach front and a small selection of mini markets, bakeries, a butchers and gift shops. Most are located on the main street running from the top of the village down to the beach road. Katelios, 15 minutes' drive away, also has a mini market and a bakery.

Bars and restaurants

Skala has an excellent selection of restaurants and tavernas serving local and international cuisine. Lots of the restaurants are on the waterfront with sea views - a great place to enjoy an alfresco meal while watching the sunset. Most of these restaurants are open all day, so you can stop for a light meze lunch. Katelios also has a few bars and seaside tavernas in the village and on the coastline, providing the perfect setting for an evening meal.


Skala Beach is a long sand and shingle beach with sun beds and parasols available for hire. Here you'll find a plethora of water sports on offer, including jet skis, kayaking and donuts. The sandy bays of Mounda and Kaminia are also within a 15 minute drive. Kaminia Beach is protected due to it being a nesting ground for Loggerhead Turtles and night-time 'turtle watches' are organised. Another great option is Katelios Beach, an un-commercialised sand and shingle bay.

Family fun

Absolute beginners and experienced pros are both well catered for when it comes to water sports in Kefalonia as all capabilities are accommodated. Hire a boat from Skala Beach to explore the pristine coastline discovering less well-known bays, or why not jump on a day cruise to Ithaca and Zante?

Places of interest

Discover the history and culture of Old Skala Village, where there are the remains of a Roman Villa constructed in the 3rd century AD. Just outside the town of Sami, you can take a tour through the natural cave system of Melissani Lake . Here, the sun light shines through the roof of the cave causing the water beneath to illuminate.

Other activities

Visit Mount Ainos National Park, home to the islands highest peak at 1628 metres above sea level. This park has lots of great walking routes, and if you're lucky, you'll spot rare one-of-a kind species of flora and fauna among the pine trees.


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
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.

Mounda Bay
From the village of Ratzakli, take the road down to the long sandy beaches of Potamakia and Kaminia with warm shallow water. The bay at Mounda stretches for miles out towards Cape Mounda and it is here that the caretta caretta turtles return from great distances to lay their eggs. Learn the Turtle Code before visiting this beach and if you bring your own beach umbrella, make sure you use it as near to the shoreline as possible so as not to disturb any turtle's nests. The water is usually warm here and it is so shallow that it is quite a walk out to just get in past your knees. There is a small cantina with sun beds for hire. Great for families.
Agios Gerasimos Monastery
Agios Gerasimos is the patron saint of the island. On its feast day, the monastery is swarming with pilgrims. According to tradition, he was born in Trikala of Korinthia and was a member of the famous Notaras family. He became a monk and spent twelve years in the Holy Land and five years in Zakynthos. He came to Kefalonia in 1560 and stayed in the cave of the same name, south of Argostoli.

Later, he founded the monastery and took residence there until his death on 15 August, 1579. Two years later, on 20 October, 1581, his relics were placed inside the monastery. He was canonized in 1622. At the courtyard, there is a big plane tree and a well, which is said to have been dug by the saint himself. Inside, there is a trap-door where he is said to have spent the greater part of his life. On the 15th of August and the 20th of October, big festivals and processions take place. Many miracles are connected to the saint's relics and icon.
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.
Katelios is a very laid back resort which has a loyal following and grows in numbers every year. It is a real 'get away from it all' resort, with a handful of shops and a few tavernas.

The area around Katelios in the south east of Kefalonia has some of the island's most dramatic beaches. Mounda (or Kaminia), Kefalonia's major turtle nesting beach, is about a fifteen minute walk around the headland, if you go over the rocks at the end of Katelios beach.

There are two parts to the resort, the beach side development, which comprises a strip of tavernas and a couple of shops. This strip is shaded by big trees, and makes for a pleasant place to sit and watch the world go by. Katelios is renowned as one of the friendliest resorts on Kefalonia, with taverna owners and shop keepers all wanting a chat.

Originally a fishing village and a few boats still do work from the harbour, the village is increasingly reliant on tourism. Katelios does have a resident community which remains during the winter and is one of the friendliest resorts on Kefalonia.

Anthony Conning, 20-Sep-2015

The Villa is set in a wonderful location secluded from the main tourist areas. The pool is excellent. The bedrooms are very large, and each have a bathroom which is highly advantageous. The restaurant at the bottom of the driveway is a great asset.
