Ambelonas is one of the largest 3 bedroom villas on the island, designed in a light, spacious, contemporary open plan style, it is an ideal romantic hideaway for a couple, but also comfortably accommodates up to 6 guests in beds, plus 1 baby in a cot, with no arguments over who has the best bedroom as they are all en suite, similar in size and equally lovely.

The villa has air-conditioning and heating throughout and is comfortably furnished, well equipped for couples & families with lots of extras such as free Wi-Fi, Bose sound dock, Wi-Fi enabled TV, Wii, swing ball, badminton & tennis rackets, DVD/CD/book library, Egyptian cotton bedding, cool box plus many other extras.

Outside, a large shady covered terrace with bougainvillea clambering up the pillars, is an essential outdoor living & snoozing space, with ample room for dining plus sofas to relax & escape the midday heat. We love sitting on the shady terrace & huge sunny patio, enjoying the ever changing views across the sea to mainland Greece & the neighbouring island of Zante, watching the yachts sailing past, with a glass of chilled local Robola wine.

By Lisa B on 07-Sep-2020

Had an amazing stay at Ambelonas Villa, the villa and location are incredible. Irene made us feel so welcome when booking and throughout our stay. Nothing was too much trouble and she gave us so much information to enhance our holiday. We felt totally looked after, with Elaine only a short distance away if we had any difficulties. This is the most beautiful, tranquil place we have ever stayed and can’t wait to go back next year.

Family holiday in Skala

By Nick A on 22-Jul-2020

This is a unique villa stay due to the amazing view and location. It is based in old skala so a car is essential and you have to be willing to drive to beach, restaurants, town etc. However, what you get is a beautiful View, complete privacy and lots of friendly goats! The house is clean, has everything you might need and Irene and the house keeper helped with anything we needed during our stay,

The welcome basket on arrival was a lovely touch. We loved it and made the most of the view and amazing pool during our stay.

(NB the local taverna within walking distance in Old Skala was closed in 2020 due to covid, but should be open as normal 2021 onwards)

Special place

By Dawn R. on 13-Aug-2019

Absolutely amazing villa. Spotlessly clean, amazing view and peaceful location - very private. Some nice touches from the owners (welcome pack with basic foodstuff, cool box for trips out). Very comfortable beds and great communication from the owners and villa manager. We had the perfect holiday here - highly recommended!

Great week

By Sarah E. on 30-Jun-2019

Lovely villa - very clean and well equipped. The welcome pack is a nice touch.
The roads are very windy - lots of hairpins. Local super market in Skala was fine for all our needs and nearest taverna is very good but it’s a 20 minute walk away . Lots of tavernas in Skala we only tried a couple and both were very good .

Fab location

By Jane S. on 03-Jun-2019

The villa has everything you could need and the owners are so helpful. The views are amazing, hearing the bells on the goats in the morning and evening as they came up and down the mountain just added to the relaxed feeling. I very rarely say I will return anywhere but this villa is so wonderful I will book it again.

What a view! Great villa quiet location :-)

By Zoe J. on 28-Oct-2018

We had a brilliant week for half term October. Weather was warm low 20’s but still lovely to laze by the pool, a day of rain but didn’t stop us exploring . The villa is very comfortable and had everything we needed, the grocery concierge service from bond Viveur was brilliant, cold beer in the fridge when we arrived was just perfect. We loved the location of the villa , in the hills with the goats and sheep and the view is amazing and you get the sun all day by the pool. Being October it was the very end of season and mostly all tavernas were closed but we liked the quiet and we almost had the beach to ourselves at Kaminia. We liked the tavernas in Kateleios and poros plus the amazing butchers there ! Would definitely recommend this villa and we hope to return next year.

Lovely clean villa with stunning views

By Katie H. on 10-Oct-2018

We had a great holiday. Although we were up a mountain it was great being away from the small town centre. The villa was spotlessly clean and had great facilities. The town itself is very quiet at this time of year but the weather was mostly great and overall we had a lovely week. Would happily return.

You won't want to leave.

By Debra B. on 18-Sep-2018

The property is approached by a narrow road that winds up the hillside and is home to many goats. This was the start of a fabulous week. The property is lovely with views to instigate jealousy from friends on your Facebook page! The only sound you will hear is the melodic chime of the goats' bells.
The house is really well appointed and we arrived to a welcome basket which included the very necessary English tea. The bed linen was fresh and of good quality and the rooms all had aircon when it got a little too hot. There are ample books and DVDs to choose from which catered to all of our tastes.
The pool was very clean and the pool guy came very discreetly early in the morning to keep it looking good. Outside there are plenty of sunbeds, parasols, tables and chairs. No need to fight over who gets there towel down first!
Just down the hill is a lovely taverna with good food and really friendly welcoming staff. Skala is full of places to eat and all reasonably priced.
Would we stay here again? That gets a big resounding yes. Our only caveat is could you arrange for the wasps to move to another hillside as they were a tad annoying.
It is a gorgeous house in a gorgeous location.

Peaceful and everything you could wish for

By Jayne W. on 10-Sep-2018

Thank you for letting us stay in your wonderful home. We didn't want to come home. Old Skala is lovely, so untouched and the surrounding area. This is on our list for a return visit.

What an amazing villa!

By Fiona W. on 26-Aug-2018

Villa Ambelonas is amazing! It is situated on the hills about the town of Skala so hiring a car is essential. The villa is positioned so that it is not overlooked and it doesn't overlook any other villas so you really do have an uninterrupted view of Skala and beyond to Zakynthos and mainland Greece.
The pool is a good size (approx 12 metres long) and the terrace is well equipped with sun loungers and umbrellas. There is often a breeze which is helpful as otherwise it might be too hot at times.
The inside of the villa is comfortable and well equipped. All the rooms have ensuite bathrooms and there is air conditioning in every room. The villa very clean on arrival with towels provided for both inside and around the pool.
Elaine visited during our stay to change towels, sheets and give the place a clean. She was really friendly and was very helpful with tips on places to visit.
Irene is lovely! She was extremely helpful with answering questions prior to our holiday. She was quick to respond when I sent an email and gave me good advice on car hire.
We visited the beaches at Kaminia and Mouda Beaches where there was a sandy beach and clear water. You could hire sunbeams and umbrellas for a few euros. At Kaminia beach there is a lovely restaurant called Anemos where we had lunch and also dinner. The food was really good and it had a lovely relaxed atmosphere. Other restaurants we visited in/near Skala were Old Times, Mikelatos and Kelari Taverna (which is very close to the villa and you can walk there).
I would highly recommend Irene and Rob's villa. It is very peaceful and relaxing. A great place to stay.

Lovely Villa

By David B. on 25-Jul-2018

There is no point repeating all the points in the previous reviews - just to say that we endorse everything that is in them, it's all true. The pool is big enough to have a proper swim, it has massage jets which are fun, and the underwater pool lights add to the night-time ambience. There is very little light pollution here, and on our last night we lay on our backs with our legs dangling in the pool looking at the constellations and shooting stars - superb. All the windows have flyscreens so you can leave the windows open to get a lovely through draught - even though it was hot we barely need the aircon. The beach at Mounda was our favourite, a 15 minute drive to a wonderful long sandy beach, gently shelving into the warm sea, that must be one of the best beaches on Kefalonia . Great holiday!
