Michalis Studios

Accommodation in Skala

Caroline L          8/10

My friend and I stayed at Michalis in July this year and found the apartments fine for our needs.  They are very well situated, close to the beach (view point end) and a stones throw from the main street.  Basic but clean, we had room 13 and looked out the rear of the apartments.  There were only 2 plug sockets in our room which can be a bit inconvienient but no real problem. I would advise getting a fan, we had the sun most of the day and it was quite hot when we returned from the beach. Very quiet apart from some road noise at night (the studios are not on a main road, but we could see the road that goes past the view point from our balcony).  I would definitely recommend these apartments to anyone wanting somewhere close to everything.  I want to go back!   Cry

 Just got back from Michalis Studios in Skala - They are basic but clean and close to all the local amenities.

Our studio (15) was smaller than others we saw and only had one plug socket (Choose between a fan - {definatley necessary} or a mosquito plug !!) But as a last minute deal they were well worth the money.
The Apts are really close to the beach (via steep slope and steps) and 2 mins walk to the main street. There seems to be a lot of building going on in Skala at the moment although we didnt experience much construction noise at all.
I really enjoyed our stay at the Michalis and would reccomend these studios to anyone.
We had to buy a fan for E15 from a local supermarket as it was warm in the rooms but what do you expect from Kefalonia in July!!!!
They also let you use a room for a shower when vacating your apt at 10.00am on your morning of departure.
Dont worry about not having a pool - There are hundreds of hotels and bars with free use of pool and the beach is beautiful (E6.00 per day for 2 x sunbeds and a parasol)
ENJOY !!! It's a beautiful place!!!

I have just returned from the Michalis studio and we had a lovely time. It was on a side street just a few minutes walk away from all the bars, shops and restaurants.The room was clean and bright. We were in room 12 which was on the first floor at the back of the studios. They were cleaned regularly the sheets/towels were changed  twice weekly.There is a lovely restaurant just around the corner called Socrates which was really nice. Food was reasonable and the owner nice and friendly. Lots of locals eating in there which added to the atmosphere.Really good daily specials.I would definately go back to Skala is a lovely place to go for a relaxing break.There are plenty of  free pools to go to. The pikonas had a lovely pool right on the promende which was new and clean and waiter service to your sunbed. Skala was fairly flat and pretty. Everything pretty much on one street and enough choice to eat out somewhere different each night.

The only down side was the airport was a nightmare going home (sunday)it was really busy with only one booking in desk. Take a bottle of water as it was a long wait queuing outside.

Just returned after two week stay at Michalis.

Ideally located for beach, bars, taverna and shops - but you need to be aware that there is a bit of building work going on around the property at the moment and the noise is a bit drastic, particularly between 8am and 12 noon.
Also no air conditioning so pretty hot during the night even with the windows open.

Just got back from staying at the Michalis Studios. We stayed there five years ago and its still a good. It could not be better placed in a quiet side street a stones throw from the beach and main street where the taverners are. We had room 5 at the rear which was very quiet it had two power sockets in the room the only slight thing is that coming in from a night out the room was very warm we even tried leaving a fan on which is an absolute must, but it did not make any difference apart from that it was perfect. Kept well clean throughout the week and we are definately looking to book there next year. The rep did not tell us about a fan but we know a guy called George in the high street would gave one to us to hire but probably worth asking the rep where to get one.

Just Back 10/07/05
The Michalis Studios are situated in a very good position, 2 minutes from the beach (Milos Beach Bar End) and 2 minutes from the main shopping street. It is located in a quiet residential street in the village and is very tranquil, for those people wanting a relaxing break, it is the place for you. Our room was on the ground floor with a patio facing the rear of the building and was very clean and airy. Our room was very large, but not all the rooms are as big as the one we stayed in. We only had one electrical socket in our room, so we bought an adapter plug from the supermarket to give us a little more power! The resort itself is excellent and has everything you could need, highlights for us were 'The Captains Bar', 'The Pines', 'The Flamingo' & 'The Old Village'. Solomos Supermarket seemed to be the best in my opinion. If anyone has any questions, please post here and I'll try and help as much as possible! I have some photo's to post as soon as I get round to it!

can anyone help, although I have been to Scala for the last 5 years I have always travelled the last two weeks in June, this year 2005 I am booked for the first two weeks in June, is the weather ok or not so good. I would be grateful for any help. Have a good Christmas and New Year. I am staying in the Michalas

I believe these studios now feature in the 2nd edition of next year's Kosmar brochure.

We found the apartments ideally situated close to the beach and tavernas.They were peaceful at night but if you are staying in a room at the back be warned there is building work going on nearby starting from 0730 am!!The room was clean when we arrived but we didn't think the sheets and towels were changed often enough during our stay and the bins were not emptied frequently enough.A fan is an absolute ESSENTIAL the rooms are very hot.Our room was a good size (14) but the sizes vary from room to room.

We enjoyed our stay at Michalis for the first two weeks in August 2004 it's,in a quiet road with only 2 mins down to the beach or 5 mins via the Roman Villa. Our room at the front was clean and tidy if a little small, if you want a larger room ask for one at the rear. Shops are all nice and close as are the resturants. There are no safety deposit boxes but you could use another appartments boxes very close by.

I stayed in the Michalas Apts., in June 2004 loved them, but there was some trouble with the Tour operator Golden Sune and the owners said they would not be contracting with them in the future, can anyone tell me whicj travel agent they are now with.

Would love to go back to the same apts., anyhelp would be good. Elizabeth

Just returned from Michalis Studios and have no complaints whatsoever. Very spacious (room 5) and handily placed for main street and very close to beach. It is very peaceful. Gallera restaurant round the corner. A fan is an absolute must though if you want a night's sleep.

Elaine K

are there safety deposit boxes available here or nearby?

Due to return early July 2004 for our third visit to Michalis Studios.
They are situated in lovely quiet position on side road but near to bbeach, close to shops and restaurants. Spacious rooms, cleaned daily. As with so many greek apartments - no air con, so recommend hiring a fan. Hope this helps Elizabeth, I'm sure you will enjoy your sstay at Michalis Studios.

Went to Mikhalis in 2002 and 2003, excellent location perfect for the beach and just about everything else. Bit of a heatwave last year and we had to hire a fan from a nearby apartment block. Planning to go back this year.

Elizabeth M

Hello, can anyone give me details of the Michalis Studios, I have stayed in several apartment blocks over the years I have travelled to Kefolonia, and I would be grateful for any comments on these please I go on the 19th June 2004 so a.s.a.p.

We stayed in the Michalis Studios in 2002 and loved every minute. Good size rooms and cleaned every day, near the beach and restaurants and only a 50 yard walk to the coach when its time to go home. Noise was not a problem in any way, we often spent the evening at Pines2 piano bar, came back to our room and saw off another bottle of wine and never heard another soul. Hoping to go back very soon.

Carl W           

These studios are perfectly located 200 m from the beach and a similar distance from the main street, although we were not aware of any noise at night (apart from the festival of St. Gerassimos). The rooms are of a good size are very clean. Our only concern was the lack of air con, but we hired a fan at 20 euro for our two weeks and slept much better from then on. We had room 8 and some friends we met had room 7, which they had had two years earlier and we were all very happy.
