About The Experience
You're sitting down to a meal at this rental villa in Greece with some of your best companions. It's a warm evening so you're dining outside on the terrace, and as you enjoy the fresh fish you picked up from the market earlier that day, you glance out over the bay below. The glance becomes a stare; it's hard to take your eyes from the view provided by this Greece rental villa! Lights from traditional whitewashed houses ring the harbor, reflecting and flickering on the water. And that water-- you know it well, having been in it one way or another every day since your arrival. However, you're thinking about spending tomorrow at home, enjoying the comforts of your own Greece holiday villa, including a private swimming pool...
Exterior Description
This elegant, contemporary house is situated in the hills behind Skopelos town. It features red tiled floors and exposed beam ceilings. It enjoys views of traditional whitewashed houses, the sea, and the neighboring island of Alonissos. There is a swimming pool (heating available on advance notice) located at the side of the house, accessible through French doors from the living room. It is surrounded by low, stone walls and lush landscaping. The pool area is furnished with a table and comfortable chairs for dining and lounging. A narrow, winding road leads up to the villa from the town center. It's a 7-minute drive from the house to the port, and a 15-minute walk to the nearest restaurant. The surrounding hillsides are covered with olive groves and crisscrossed by donkey paths, making it an ideal spot for hiking. Within a 5-minute walk from the house there is a fresh water fountain with an inlaid sarcophagus dating from the 5th century. The small beach of Glyfoneri can be reached on foot in 45 minutes. The steep road that leads down to the beach is lined with typical tavernas.
Interior Description
Two levels.
Main level: There is a large, modern, open plan kitchen with stainless steel built-in appliances and stained wood cupboards. It is equipped with a dishwasher and microwave. The adjacent dining room is furnished with a large wooden dining table. French doors lead out to a terrace that runs the length of the house. One step down from the dining room, there is a sunken, open plan living room with corner fireplace, built-in sofa, and French doors leading to the swimming pool and terrace. There are four spacious, comfortable bedrooms. On the main level, a small hallway just beyond the entrance leads to a double bedroom with exposed beam ceilings, a large closet, and French doors that lead to the terrace. There is a bathroom with shower located next door. A staircase leads down to the lower level bedrooms.
Lower level: Along a hallway, there is one twin-bedded room and two double bedrooms. Each of these three bedrooms has an ensuite bathroom with shower and French doors that lead to the terrace that runs the length of the house. Each bedroom terrace area is furnished with a table and chairs and offers privacy.

    Customer Reviews

    Overall:
    Enjoy it. We had a fabulous experience, this coming from a group of 9 people ranging from all ages, the youngest being 15.
    Enjoyed Most:
    The view was magnificent overlooking the bay. The sea sparkled with the radiance of the sun in the morning and in the evening the water looked like it was gently falling asleep on a bed of misty blue glass. It was indeed an image that will remain in our minds forever. The inside of this home was impressive with 12 foot ceilings, at least, and a very comfortable and pleasing design. The kitchen had all the contemporary amenities and there were ocean views from practically every room.
    Enjoyed Least:
    Everything about the property met all our expectations with the exception of some minor inconveniences. It was somewhat difficult to keep water from splashing out of the shower stalls and we encountered a slight problem with ants. However, given the rustic location of this otherwise perfect villa, it was not too difficult for all of us to overlook a few imperfections. Suggestions would be to first spray using the hand shower, turn off the water, lather with soap and finally rinse. It is much easier to maintain some neatness while controlling the direction of the water. The ants are a product of the environment, but if the counter tops are kept clean and there is no exposed food left out anywhere, it is very easy to manage.
    Surrounding Area:
    What's not to enjoy in this Greek Island paradise? The pathway leading down to the sea side shops and restaurants were laced with ancient stepping stones, pure white cottages with variations of colored shutters wrapped around windows adorned by fragrant flower boxes.
    Nearby Events or Locales:
    The nearest town of Skopelos was a short walk from the Villa. The pathway can be challenging as it can be quite steep. It is a 2 minute ride down from the Villa by car or scooter. There were a number of good restaurants along the sea as well as a variety of shops. People were very friendly and helpful. It was a plus to be of Greek decent and speak the language however, most everyone spoke English to some degree.
    Tips or Restaurants:
    I would only suggest that families bring any medications, even over the counter remedies such as aspirin, neosporin, Benadryl, etc. These things can be rather expensive overseas and it was comforting having them at our disposal. Otherwise, the Villa was very well equipped. On a recreational note, I would advise to bring or buy scuba gear, fishing equipment, etc. There are shops which carry these things in the village for a reasonable price.
    Directions:
    The directions were very good however, we found the map outlining the path to the property easier to follow.
    Check In Out:
    There were no problems and the travel agency personnel were very pleasant and helpful.

    Diane, June

    Overall:
    Overall a very comfortable and nice place to stay.
    Enjoyed Most:
    The view was amazing, we had a clear shot of the town, hillside and entire harbor. It was secluded and we definitely felt we had privacy and the ability to relax. The kitchen was well supplied with cookware, dishes, appliances, etc. Our local representative, Henriette was extremely nice, and helpful with taxis, island info, etc.
    Enjoyed Least:
    The bathrooms were small and dark and the showers were not enclosed so the entire bathroom got soaked anytime someone took a shower. The house was not well supplied with such items as toilet paper, trash bags, dishwasher detergent. We had to buy them. The cost for heating the pool is high, but the pool heater did not seem to work property. After two days, we just asked the reps to turn it off. There was no noticeable difference in the pool's temperature after they turned off the heater.
    Surrounding Area:
    The island is beautiful, very nice beaches all within scooter distance. The harbor is full of tavernas and coffee shops. We also hiked to several monasteries.
    Nearby Events or Locales:
    Skopelos Town is close enough to walk to in ten minutes. There is a very steep hill with switchbacks leading up to the property, so be careful on scooters or be prepared for a steep hike home.
    Tips or Restaurants:
    Most of the restaurants are enjoyable.
    Directions:
    There are taxis on the island, so you can arrive from the ferry and hire a taxi to take you to the house after picking up the keys.
