We stayed at this lovely Villa in Skala for our Honeymoon. It is a great villa complete with everything you need to have a comfortable stay. Elaine and Tasos put so much effort into making our stay absolutely brilliant. They were very kind, generous and attentive and ensured that any queries or minor issues were dealt with straight away. They make sure you feel completely at home in their Villa, which is so lovely and their attention to detail is fantastic. Couldn't have asked for more!
The location of the Villa is perfect as it is very close to the local supermarket, close to local great beachfront bars and restaurants, some beautiful beaches and the town center. There are also plenty of attractions to visit if you wish to explore the island, such as Scuba Diving, Sea Kayaking, Cruises to other close by islands and Old Skala.
We had an absolutely wonderful time away, and will definitely be returning again.
Thanks so much for everything!

We just returned from villa Anna Maria yesterday and were so sad to leave. There is nothing bad you can say about this villa and the owners Elaine and Tasos.The villa is beautiful, so comfortable and a real home from home in terms of home comforts. It's beautifully decorated exactly like the photographs. It's spotlessly clean and tidy. Has everything you could need, aircon, wifi, through to beach towels and hairdryers. The sun loungers and parasol, in the garden are comfortable and with the swinging seat and covered table there is pleanty of shade if you need it. We went as a family of 4 (2adults and 2 children 10 and 7 years) the villa was perfect for us as the pool wasn't so deep that we were worried about the children being in by themselves. The pool was amazing to have all to ourselves and the children loved it. There is a few pool toys there( left by previous people I'm guessing ( as we did the same leaving a beach chair and donught rubber ring that we didn't need to take home) if you need to do washing while you are there there is a machine and a line to dry everything. There is even a mini dishwasher!
Location is brilliant.. You are about 2 minute walk to the beach. This is all stones though so worth investing in some beach/swim shoes to take as it makes it much easier on the feet but the sea is lovely and warm to get into to. The sea gets very deep very quickly but our 2 still managed a few afternoons playing happily in and out of it but very little ones would need to be watched as it does get deep within a few feet. There is water sports further down the beach if you want a pedalo etc.
The supermarket and small snack bar is 1 min walk away. Literally at the villa gate and stocks everything you need if you want to cook at the villa.
There is nearby other tavernas which were all ok or it's a 5 min walk along the beach road to the town where there is shops and many more tavernas and restaurants. Our favourites were flamingo and Socrates. We chose to go back to Socrates for a second time on our last night as we loved it so much. It's hidden a way a bit at the back of the shops near the roman villa( also worth a visit. Only takes about 20mins to really look at it all but something different to do and it's free!) but worth the extra few minutes walk past the other restaurants so Socrates as the food and atmosphere were the best we found.
The owners Elaine and Tasos were so helpful and friendly and nothing was too much trouble for them. I will be recommending this villa to anyone who wants a villa holiday and although we don't ever go back to the same place twice I have a feeling we will be back to the villa Anna Maria one day as it truly was a very special place and definatley our favourite family holiday we have ever had. Thank you Elaine and Tasos.
great location- a stones throw away from the beach, snack bar, restaurants and supermarket. Town centre with all its amenities is just a short walk away.
The villa itself is wonderfully appointed, very clean with a lovely garden and good size swimming pool.
Owners Elaine and Tasos are very friendly and helpful and just a phone call away if you need them.
Will definitely be going back.
Villa Anna Maria absolutely perfect for a young family. Our 2 children (aged 8 and5) never wanted to leave the pool. It is half a minute from a mini market and 1 minute to the beach. A lovely evening stroll into the village with plenty of places to eat.
Elaine and Tasos are wonderful hosts who pay attention to guests and the villa without being intrusive.
Scala quiet when we went which totally suited us. Cephalonia is a gorgeous island. Do note the umbrella in the villa (We didn't see it) as some beaches don't have them for hire.
I do hope the area around the villa remains undeveloped. The space really adds to peace.
Really enjoyed our stay at Elaine and Tasos villa. The way the garden is planned it gives you total privacy. The garden is ideal for outside living. The inside of the villa is of a high standard, all you need for self catering and very clean.
There is a small modern mini market and cafe where you can sit and have a drink of whatever you want situated just outside the villa. There are plenty of restaurants just yards away with all the traditional Greek delicacies. Skala is a very nice place to visit, you can hire a car to visit other parts of the island or do what we did just stay local. Elaine and Tasos do go that extra mile to help as much as they can and nothing was ever a problem they were also very friendly. Don’t just take my word for it, go try it for yourselves. You will enjoy it.
We recently stayed in Villa AnnaMaria in Skala and it was absolutely fantastic. Very family friendly, superb hosts, great location, excellent amenities, lovely outdoor space with well maintained pool. Great spot to explore the Island from, we loved it so much we have booked again for October! Fantastic!
Located within easy walking distance of Skála centre. Private villa with all the comforts of home and pleasantly decorated. Pool area is not overlooked from any aspect. Close to a supermarket were you may hear some deliveries at times but is not really obtrusive. We have stayed in loads of villas over the years this is the only one we have booked for a second visit. Back again in June 2018 can’t wait.
