Offering superior accommodation for families or groups of friends, the wonderful Villa Adamite was designed and built in 2016. It is built over two floors to offer three superbly comfortable bedrooms, contemporary open plan living space and blissful outdoor space on top of a lush green Kefalonian cape, a ten to fifteen minutes walk from the fabulous village of Skala. This beautifully appointed villa offers uninterrupted Ionian Sea views, mountain views and even access to a little private secluded beach. Outside, you can cool off in a wonderful pool, dine alfresco under the shade of a modern canopy, relax with your holiday book and watch the glorious sunsets with a delicious glass of your favourite tipple. If you are taking a holiday with another family, they could always book Villa Adamite’s sister villa, Villa Cuprian, and stay next door.

In the southernmost corner of Kefalonia, Skala boasts a Blue Flag, three kilometre-long sand and pebble beach with lively beach bars, secluded stretches and plenty of watersports. Skala is lively and popular with an excellent selection of gift shops, mini-markets, bars and restaurants. Once a small fishing village, Skala is immensely popular though you can still find a quiet spot. It is surrounded by fragrant pine trees and boasts a warren of narrow cobblestoned streets sprinkled with delightful eateries. Though seriously damaged by the earthquake and rebuilt in 1956, there are still some well-preserved mosaics found within a 3rd-century Roman villa on the edge of the village and ruins of the Temple of Apollo which dates back to 600 BC a couple of miles out of town. Outside of Skala, you will discover vineyards, olive and orange groves, fields and hills, home to goats and sheep and thousands of beehives which are used to make the delicious Kefalonian thyme-flavoured honey.

Surrounded by a lush green landscape with fruit and olive trees and a small vineyard, Villa Adamite enjoys a very peaceful, secluded environment. The garden is stunning and perfect for families who might want to enjoy some games as well as sensational sea views. The terrace offers luxury alfresco dining and lounge spaces and sun loungers so that you can top up your tans and read your holiday books. The swimming pool is fabulous, especially with its eco credentials and being chemical and chlorine free.

The ground floor of Villa Adamite is home to one of the bedrooms and an open-plan living space. The living space is bright and airy, drowned in natural light that floods in through the floor-to-ceiling glass doors. To one side you have a grey and white toned corner sofa and armchair together with a television and to the other, a fabulously sociable kitchen area with a dining table, chairs and bench seating. The chefs in your group will be impressed with the appliances provided and having company while they cook. Doors open directly to the terrace so you can always cook inside and dine alfresco.

The bedrooms are beautifully presented with comfy kingsize or twins that are next to each other forming huge beds. They are minimalist in design and very appealing. The downstairs bedroom comes with an ensuite bathroom with a walk-in shower and the guests staying upstairs share a pristine family bathroom, again beautifully tiled with a walk-in shower, fluffy towels and luxury toiletries.

You will definitely leave Villa Adamite with wonderful holiday memories.

Villa Adamite enjoys a dreamy spot overlooking the calm, turquoise Ionian Sea, just a short walk from the lovely resort of Skala. It is a superb location where you will enjoy peace and tranquillity yet be within walking distance of shops, bars and restaurants.

Skala is lively and vibrant with a wonderful beach which boasts watersports, bars and plenty of sun loungers and parasols. There are some trendy bars, traditional tavernas serving delicious feta-covered feasts and some excellent shops. Skala is surrounded by vineyards, olive groves and fields full of sheep and goats. Just on the edge of Skala are the remains of a Roman villa with its mosaics depicting an altar with a sacrificial bull and other wild animals.  

Just along the coast is Potamaki Beach which has been declared a conservation area thanks to its resident loggerhead turtles laying their eggs. If you visit the beach at night, the turtle watches are fascinating. Kaminia Beach is also a nesting ground for loggerhead turtles. Just minutes from Skala, you can also visit the waterfalls of Potistis.

Kefalonia is a paradise island with a mythical Greek history at its heart. The scenic setting for Captain Corelli’s Mandolin, the island has much to offer and will definitely steal your heart. If you have time during your trip, the towns of Argostoli, Lixouri, Fiskardo and Assos should all be on your list of places to visit.

Pessada is a delightful seaside village with lovely views over to Zante. It enjoys several pretty beaches with crystal clear emerald water and rocks dotted around the bay. Other beaches that are worth visiting are Trapezaki Beach, Avithos Beach, Ammes Beach and Minies Beach Makris Gialos Beach, Xi Beach, Poros Beach and the famous Myrtos Beach.

Argostoli stands proudly at the far end of a natural bay surrounded by mountains and lush forests. The major 1953 earthquake destroyed the town which was rebuilt and is now a cosmopolitan wonder with a palm-lined coastal promenade, a wonderful array of restaurants, cafes, bars and shops, a small ferry quay where boats can take you to Lixouri and fishing boats moor up and a lively central square. You will discover the beautiful Church of Saint Spyridon and the fascinating clock tower of Campana Square. The town’s Archaeological Museum of Kefalonia is home to interesting archaeological finds from the Mycenaean, Hellenistic and Roman periods. There are plenty of other museums and monasteries to visit including the Byzantine Ecclesiastical Museum, the Monastery of Agios Milapidias, the Monastery of Sission and the Historical and Folklore Museum of Corgialenos.

You can take the boat over from Argostoli to Lixouri,  the second-largest town in Kefalonia. Lixouri was built on the site where the ancient city of Pali use to be. It offers delightful restaurants and bars which line the busy waterfront and the main square, Plateia Petritsi. Lixouri hosts many festivals throughout the year and is known for its rich cultural traditions. It boasts one of the oldest philharmonic schools in Greece. You can visit some atmospheric churches with wonderful frescoes, the archaeological museum, neoclassical buildings and the famous Monastery of Kipoureon.

Further north is Assos and Fiskardo, both wonderful day or evening excursions from the villa.  Assos is peaceful and charming with some excellent restaurants and cafes. It is surrounded by luscious green scenery and verdant forests. It offers a mystical atmosphere, almost as though the village is lost in time. Pretty pastel-coloured houses are nestled into the steep hillsides and the castle is a popular visit. On the northern tip of the island, Fiskardo is trendy and chic. Its waterside dining is fabulous and there is a wonderful array of unique boutiques and gift shops. As well as colourful fishing boats in the harbour, you will see many luxury yachts as Fiskardo is definitely one of the places to be in Kefalonia, albeit it is located at the far end of the island.

Villa Adamite is perfect for a family holiday. The villa offers a lot of space, a large garden and a wonderful swimming pool. Skala is a fantastic resort on the south coast for families with a huge sand and pebble beach, plenty of watersports and a good array of family-friendly restaurants.

Kefalonia boasts thirty-nine fabulous and varied beaches. The astounding Myrtos Beach is one of the most famous and it is a stunner. Even though it is a fair distance from the villa, it is definitely worth the trip. There are some stunning sea fish around the bays so snorkelling is a great option. You can hire boats to explore the coastline and there are watersports available at some beaches, including Skala. The boat trip from Argostali to Lixouri is a great trip. You can hire boats and kayaks to discover the wonderful coastline and caves.

Children love visiting the caves of Melissani Lake where a hole in the cave’s roof lets in the sun. It is very mystical and like venturing into another world. The boat trip across the crystal clear lake is such a memorable excursion. The Drogarati Caves are a miracle of nature with orange and yellow stalactites hanging from the roof like curtains. It is an astonishing marvel, more than 150 million years old.

Cycling is popular on Kefalonia. Some of the coastal paths might be a little difficult for young children but there are some magnificent panoramic views and charming villages to stop at. Skala to Mount Aenos is a fabulous ride with generally great conditions. Craggy cliffs, verdant forests and turquoise waters make for incredible vistas. Mount Aenos is the highest point on the island at 5000 ft. It is also a great place for a hike.

Reviews

  • Heavenly

    on 25/10/2022

    It was a wonderful holiday, great surroundings. The house and the garden and pool are lovely. Tastefully and practically furnished, everything we needed was there and more.

  • Lovely modern villa

    on 31/08/2022

    Well maintained, modern and clean in a great location - is close enough to Skala to walk to town but feels sufficiently rural to be away from any noise. All the amenities you’d expect from a villa and the host is extremely helpful in both explaining about the property facilities as well as the local area. Would certainly consider a return visit.

  • Beautifully furnished

    on 28/07/2017

    We stayed here for 1 week in June. The villas are brand new and are beautifully furnished. The pool area is great with plenty of loungers and seating areas and leads straight down to the sea front. It’s a 5 minute drive from Skala centre. Anastasia was a great host and there to answer any questions we had. She very kindly bought us lots of extra treats and even wine made from the vines in the garden! Hopefully we will be back soon!
