Makis Apartments  

These self-catering apartments come with a good pool. And if you don’t fancy cooking, snacks are served at the pool bar*.

This is a small, family-run complex with a friendly atmosphere. The studios are surrounded by manicured gardens dotted with palm trees.

In terms of location, it’s in a quiet corner of Skala. That said, the town’s shops and tavernas are just a 5-minute walk away, and it’s only a 10-minute stroll to the Blue Flag shingle beach.

Comfortable Studio Apartment

Set just off the Main Street at the top of the hill Makis Studios are close to many of the restaurants and just 10 minutes walk from the beach. The room was compact but comfortable. The maid did a great job as it was spotlessly clean. We didn't spend much time by the pool but there always seemed to be sunbeds available. Room 16 was good as it was high up and furthest from the pool area. The only thing missing for us from the kitchen facilities was a toaster. More

pros and cons

as people have already said the apartments are kept very clean, cleaned every day and bed linen and towels changed often. Rita and Maria (evenings) very friendly and helpful, Pool a reasonable size and plenty of sunbeds and brollies. What hasn't been mentioned is that it really isn't suitable for anybody who has walking problems as there are anything up to 35 steps down to the pool and bar area and that the whole of Scala is quite hilly. As for a toaster ,do as we did - bought a cheap one which was light and took it with us. some lovely places to eat and can't beat the Apostolis for superb meals at great prices and a free drink thrown inMore

Fantastic holiday

Stayed here 16th July for 2 weeks this is our second time. The apartments are spotlessly clean and Rita and the staff are very friendly and work very hard to maintain the standard. The location is brilliant and Scala is a lovely town, the restaurant's are brilliant and so are the cocktail bars.More

Fantastic place to stay

We stayed in the Makis studios for a week in room 1. The rooms are compact and basic but spotlessly clean. I agree that a toaster would be good! We had a large patio area which was very private. The staff are very friendly and welcoming. Maria has a wonderful personality and makes such an effort to make people feel welcome. Her quiz night was great and I can imagine the BBQ night would have been fun too but that was cancelled due to lack of interest. The pool area is spotless and always had enough sunbeds for everyone to use. It is just a short stroll in to the village where there are plenty of good tavernas, a couple of bars and supermarkets. The beach is quite difficult to walk/lie on so beach shoes and lilo (bought these from the supermarket) were a godsend! We went on a boat trip to Fiskardo with 2 swim stops which was fantastic. However, when we stopped off at the taverna at Karavomylos the waiters were very arrogant and unwelcoming. Kefalonia/ Skala is a beautiful place and we would definately stay at the Makis studios again.More

'Real Greece' The best place to stay in Skala

My husband and I stayed at Makis Studios in September and just love the place. It is the second year running we have stayed and it really is 'Real Greece'. The studios are spotless and are cleaned every day, we were self catering and had everything we needed along with a beautiful balcony. We prefer the studios a bit further away from the pool as you are tucked away. The pool is perfect and there are always sunbeds and brollies available. Rita (the owner) is always available during the day and Maria during the evening. You are about a 5 minute walk to the centre of Skala and we feel it is one of the best places to stay if you want to get away from it all but still be able to waddle into town. Food is available all day at the pool bar and I fully recommend that you try Rita's homemade burgers! Foodie Note: The bakery on the main street make the most amazing Lemon Meringue Pies but you need to get there early!More
