Traditional Greek Hotel
New for 2022, we’re thrilled to introduce you to the delightful Porto Skala Hotel close to the resort of Skala on the beautiful South East coast of Kefalonia. Our hotel is perfectly situated with uninterrupted sea views and only a short distance from the resort centre with its choice of traditional bars, restaurants and music venues, all set back from a long sandy beach.
Skala, in the south east of of the island is one of the more popular summer resorts in Kefalonia. It comes alive offering a wide variety of shops, bars and restaurants, all whilst retaining it’s traditional Greek charm. There is also a 3km sandy beach where you can relax and chill or perhaps try your hand at one of the water sports on offer. Skala also offers a taste of history and you can visit the ruins of the temple of Apollo, which dates back to 6th century BC with its remarkable Doric columns still standing.
The Porto Skala Hotel offers uninterrupted sea views situated in a fantastic spot outside the resort of Skala. The hotel offers a delightful pool area with plenty of space to pick a quiet spot to relax whilst making the most of the views. And if it is a drink or snack you fancy then head to the pool bar. If you prefer a change from the pool then head down to the beach, just a short walk away in front of the hotel where you can spend a lazy day enjoying the Ionian sea.
The gorgeous Ionian island of Kefalonia is still relatively unknown to visitors. There is no mass tourism here, it’s authentically Greek. Kefalonia is simply stunning; high mountains, secluded coves, blue flag beaches, forests of cypress trees, endless vineyards and colourful fishing ports. It is no wonder why the island was used as the base for the famous film Captain Corelli’s Mandolin. Neighbouring Ithaca is worth a day trip as it is an unspoiled hiking paradise with rugged vegetation and only shy mountain goats interrupts the silence. The island is famous as the setting of ‘The Odyssey ‘ by Homer; every traveller should visit Ithaca once and follow in the footsteps of this epic story!

The architecture is that of a traditional Greek village along with the attentive staff create a friendly and relaxing atmosphere.

Casual, cotton, lightweight daytime wear is the order of the day. Comfortable shoes are a must for sightseeing. Smart casual clothes will be ideal for the evening, with the emphasis throughout being informal but with no shorts or vests in the restaurants in the evenings. Early and late season evenings can be cool so do ensure that you take a cardigan or jacket and even some rainwear – particularly in May and June when you may experience some spring thunderstorms follow
We suggest a Group Collection to cover transfer drivers, and hotel staff of €20.00 per person. Your Tour Leader will collect this on your behalf and distribute it accordingly, thus relieving you of the burden of who, when and how much to tip. The tipping of housekeeping will be left to your individual discretion (a small amount left in your room on departure should cover this and would be much appreciated). As is customary, ‘the hat’ will be passed around for the driver and guide on all optional excursions. For any meals that are not included in your itinerary, or taxi fares, your Tour Leader can advise of an appropriate percentage add on.
Please note there are some steps within the hotel. The beach in front of the hotel is also accessed by a number of steps which may not be suitable for people with mobility issues.

I was so nervous about embarking on my first Solos Holiday, but I shouldn’t have been – it was the best thing I have ever done!
Wow! Got to see the famous shipwreck beach in Zakynthos with Solos. Can’t wait to discover more of their destinations!
Our tour leader Monica was exceptional! Had such a good time and will be rebooking with Solos. Thanks for a great holiday!
