Overview

Skopelos Cottage Rental Photos and Description

'Heaven on Earth' JLM's review, 'Magical Place' Yeatman's review

For relaxing holidays, you can't beat this detached cottage with its pool in a large enclosed garden; set amongst the verdant hills of the island, it has been lovingly restored to provide all modern facilities, yet preserved many of the features of an old traditional property. A big joy of this property is the large terraced areas surrounded by a fenced garden with trees and flowers, that you can enjoy at different times of the day. The roomy terrace is a lovely sheltered spot with shade provided by trees or covered patios, and color provided by potted flowers. There is plenty of room to sunbathe, to enjoy the views and the stunning sunset, or to dine outside; there is also a stone-built barbeque perfect for outdoor cooking. Whether you choose to take your breakfast and meal, or sunbathe by he pool, enjoying the verdant hills and lush countryside, garden furniture and sun beds are at your disposal. There is a small front terrace, off the living room with views to the sea.

Peaceful retreat

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent one week in the Blue Cottage, and we will always remember it. The villa is located in the middle of the island, surrounded by deep valleys and mountains. We started every day by jogging to a small church on the top of a nearby mountain, did yoga lessons and enjoyed our fruit yoghurt in the sun at the pool. It was wonderful. During the day, we discovered the whole island with our scooter, which is very easy due to the central location of the villa: Every beach, every town can be accessed very quickly (and the Delfi mountain is very close for hiking). Inside, the villa is cosy and tidy. Dimitris' parents came every few days to clean, and they brought with them tasty Skopelos cheese cake. All in all, it was really relaxing and we would always chose this accommodation if we come back to Skopelos again. Thank you for your hospitality!

Perfect hide-away with outstanding service

  • 4 of 5

This is a perfect house to experience the greek hospitality and explore the beautiful Skopelos island. Situated right in the middle of the island, no beach is farther away than 20 minutes by car. The cottage is neat and you are taken care of with overwhelming warmth by the hosting family. The roomy patio with pool, grill, sun beds, dinner table and several chill-out-areas makes it a perfect hide-away, only a 15 minutes drive from pleasant Skopelos town.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Blue cottage is a comfortable place with spacious and beautifully arranged garden with swimming pool. Everything is clean and the kitchen is fully equipped. It's a good value for money. Everything is like on pictures. It's ideal for two couples with children.The location of blue cottage is in the middle of the island. You can reach it from all sides of the island by car. All interesting places are far not more than half an hour drive, but the roads are steep and winding. Scopelos is a quite green oasis with many beautiful beaches and crystal clear water. The temperature of the sea at the beginning of summer season is pleasant for swimming, but nights are a bit cold. The hosts are really polite and convivial. We spend there 14 days and I wish to go there again.

An excellent secluded family getaway

  • 5 of 5

As first time visitors to Skopelos, the Blue Cottage provided a fantastic base to explore from, though sometimes it was hard to drag ourselves away from the pool and surrounding terrace which was very well appointed and had plenty of shade throughout the day.

The location couldn't be faulted, it's quiet and has wonderful views of the surrounding countryside, but isn't too remote. You can drive to Skopelos town or a good beach within 15 minutes.

The house was very comfortable with plenty of space for 5 adults and a toddler to spread out, though due to the steps and pool they needed to be supervised when outside. The downstairs bedrooms were really useful as they were self contained and provided a cool space during the day if the sun got too much. Having a second fridge downstairs was great for the watermelon and beer!

The car hire organised by Dimitris through Magic Rent-a-Car was very simple, everything was waiting for us when we stepped off the ferry. Magic were also very flexible when we wanted to extend our booking later on, highly recommended. Car hire whilst staying at the Blue Cottage is essential.

Dimitris and his family were fantastic and very accommodating. As well as driving up to clean out the pool and house every couple of days they were wonderful hosts, even taking us back to the ferry on the last day when we didn't have a car and accommodating 2 members of our party whilst they waited for the evening ferry. Imagine getting that sort of service from a tour rep!

Skopelos itself is a fantastic island, not too touristy like Skiathos, but with a gentle charm and plenty to see and do. Evening cocktails in Bpaxos bar overlooking Skopelos harbour are highly recommended, as is the food in The Orchard restaurant. Agnanti in Glossa was another one of our favourite restaurants.

We tried most of the beaches on the island during our stay and found that Limnonari was our favourite due to ease of parking, simple facilities and sheltered swimming, but without being too crowded.

The Carrefour supermarket on the outskirts of town is good for general supplies and has easy parking and icy cold air-conditioning, but head to town for your daily bread.

We would definitely come back to Skopelos and having found the Blue Cottage it seems foolish to go anywhere else.

MAGICAL PLACE

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and our teenage son and daughter spent a wonderful week at the Blue Cottage in August 2010. If you are looking for somewhere to really switch off, there could not be a more idyllic place. The Blue Cottage has a unique magic and you cannot help but be charmed by its traditional style and stunning patios and views.

It was a pleasure to meet Dimitris and we can only reiterate the comments of the other reviewers.

This is a place none of us will forget and I am sure we will return to one day.

Kastani was our favourite beach and we would like to recommend Taverna Peparithos, on the back road into Skopelos and The Art Cafe at Ditropo for an extra special meal. The back streets of Skopelos town are enchanting and definitely worth having a wander around (take a camera). A car is essential.

PYRGOS AREA: A holiday in the area of Pyrgos would suit those who would like to be not far from the beautiful beaches of Skopelos and do not mind being away from - but within easy reach of - Skopelos Town. The area consists of wooded hillsides, olive groves, plum or almond orchards and vineyards. Pyrgos is sparsely inhabited and a holiday here is generally a quiet affair.
