Rigorous new cleaning protocols have been implemented to ensure that our staff, your family & all guests holidaying after you, can enjoy the safest possible environment for your holiday. Dedicated maid service only looks after Ambelonas, so no risk of cross contamination between villas or hotel rooms.

Peaceful, private, not overlooked, this South facing 3 bedroom Villa is a well equipped home from home. With stunning uninterrupted 180 degree sea views, large private infinity pool & BBQ in one acre of garden, it’s a perfect location for your precious holiday time.

Situated at the end of a private road in pretty countryside, 10 mins drive down to Skala town & its lovely sandy beaches.

This 3 bedroom comfortable villa is an ideal romantic hideaway for a couple, but equally suits families and friends sharing with no arguments over who has the best room - they are all en suite, similar in size and equally lovely. One of the largest 3 bedroom villas on the island, its light spacious open plan design, comfortably accommodates up to 6 adults in beds, plus 1 baby or child in a fold down bed or cot, on request, extra linen charge applies.

Large infinity pool with whirlpool jets & floodlights (switch in lounge by window).
The pool is easily accessed by gentle Roman steps.
Depth: Shallow 0.6m graduating to deep end 1.9m perfect for laps & children, who must be supervised while in and around the pool at all times.
Pool size is 65m2, 13m x 5m

The villa has air-conditioning and heating throughout and is comfortably furnished, well equipped for couples & families with lots of extras such as a bluetooth speaker, free unlimited Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi enabled TV (variable & not guaranteed), Wii, badminton & tennis rackets, DVD/CD/book library, Egyptian cotton bedding, outdoor loungers, cool box plus many other extras. Private chef, grocery delivery & daily maid service are available on request at additional charge.

A generous welcome hamper is offered to all our guests on arrival.

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 or in loungers on the 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. We hope you love the villa as much as we do. We wish you a very happy holiday!

Lovely villa with a spectacular view
Wonderful secluded setting for a relaxing holiday, yet only a short drive from Skala town and all its facilities. Highly recommended.

5/5 Excellent

Beautiful villa
A very well appointed villa with stunning views over Skala and the sea. Peaceful and a great place for a relaxing holiday

5/5 Excellent

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.

5/5 Excellent

Family holiday in skala
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.

5/5 Excellent

Perfect Villa, beautiful views, ideal for family holiday
