SHARE THE MAGIC in fabulous Villa Alkionis...• Villa Alkionis lies at the end of a sloping driveway in splendid isolation between the picturesque villages of Skala and Poros in Southeast Kefalonia. From its large veranda - ideal for dining al fresco - you can enjoy a stunning 180° view of the emerald blue sea, which lies just 50 metres below the villa. The villa boasts an undeniable "wow factor" also because of the high vaulted ceilings and patio windows on every wall that emphasise the unique scenic surroundings. The villa benefits from its own infinity private pool. With one double and two twin bedrooms the villa is ideal for families and parties of friends, with plenty to see and do during your stay on Kefalonia. Skala offers a variety of shops, bars, restaurants and water sports facilities on the lovely sand and shingle beach. Poros is a traditional Greek village with local cuisine taverns next to the beach and the harbour. The beaches of both villages have been rewarded with the international Blue Flag for the cleanliness of the swimming water and beach facilities. Both villages are a 10 minutes drive by car.
