Villas in Skala

'Skala' is the Greek word for steps, and at the bottom of the main street you can reach the long beach via a flight of steps leading from the main square, down through the pine trees. There are more than 20 restaurants to choose from in the centre. The majority concentrate on traditional Greek home cooking but you can also find Chinese and Italian fare, as well as the familiar crepes, burgers and pizzas. As you would expect, there is plenty of excellent fresh fish on the menu with local dishes such as swordfish in ouzo sauce, or bianco, a garlicky fish stew. After your meal you might retire to one of the bars offering live music, which might be a local band or traditional bouzouki music. You will find most things you need in the town centre including car hire offices, doctors and a pharmacy, banks and cash points, supermarkets, butchers and bakers, a sub-post office and a number of gift shops. If you are an ancient history buff, you are in luck – archaeological finds in the area include the ruins of a Roman villa with lovely mosaic floors, excavated in 1957, a 7th century BC temple of Apollo, and a beehive-shaped tomb dating back to the Mycenaean period that could be the burial place of Odysseus himself!
