Overview

Skopelos House Rental Photos and Description

2 bedroom, 1 bathroom, sleeps 5

The Cypress House is a traditional Skopeliot house in a quiet residential neighborhood about 5 minutes walk from the bustling harbor and port with its taverns, shops and galleries. It is close to the ancient Byzantine Kastro and near to two lovely churches: Aghios Panteleimonas and Tris Ierarhes.

A short walk takes you to the perimeter road, which is the nearest access for cars and taxis. Local traditional shops are available a short walk away offering everything you should need for self-catering. Two of Skopelos' finest restaurants are within the neighborhood, and all the seafront cafes, and shops are only a short walk away down at the harbor and port.

There is maid service once weekly. Sheets, blankets and towels are provided but we ask you to use your own towels for the beach, and bring your own soap and toiletries.

On arrival in the port you will be met by our manager and conducted to the Cypress House and shown its facilities. We will always be on hand during your visit for any information you may need.

Ground Floor: From the Entrance with patio table and chairs you come first to a lovely Kitchen/Dining Room with traditional fireplace, stovetop/oven, fridge/freezer, sink, ample storage and a cherry wood table that seats up to 8. Adjacent to the Kitchen is a Shower Room and WC.

First Floor: On the first floor you will find a spacious Bedroom, with queen-size bed, a traditional fireplace, air conditioning, roomy wardrobe and library. A folding bed/sofa offers the ability for an additional guest in the bedroom.

Top Floor: On the top floor is the stunning and spacious Living Room with convertible double bed/sofa and the original high chestnut wood ceiling. French windows at the front give access to a traditional town house balcony with lovely views over the rooftops to the distant hills beyond. To the rear, a door opens onto a cool and private courtyard garden, with plants, umbrella and eating/lounging area and the Cypress tree which gives the house its name.

Schöne Unterkunft in der Altstadt von Skopelos

  • 4 of 5

Wir haben eine Woche in dieser empfehlenswerten Unterkunft verbracht. Es handelt sich um ein kleines Häuschen in der Altstadt von Skopelos. Die Lage ist gut, so dass man zu Fuss von der Fähre zum Haus kommt, oder auch um abends am Hafen in einer der vielen Tavernen einzukehren. Um Ausflüge zu machen oder um zu einem der Strände zu kommen, empfiehlt sich ein Auto oder Moped.

Die Ausstattung ist absolut ausreichend und entspricht der Beschreibung. Gefallen hat uns, das es eine Waschmaschine gab. Auch die Terasse ist schön. Wenn das Wetter nicht so gut ist (gibt es Anfang Juni tatsächlich in Griechenland) hat man ein schönes Wohnzimmer, um sich auch mal länger aufzuhalten.

Es gibt ein Schlafzimmer mit Doppelbett, auch insgesamt von der Grösse her ideal für 2 Personen.

Nachteil: kein Internet und (für uns nicht ganz so wichtig) keine int. Fernsehprogramme.

Der Kontakt mit dem Besitzer war sehr nett und unkompliziert. Vor Ort gibt es einen Manager, der immer erreichbar war, uns von der Fähre abgeholt und Alles gezeigt hat. Somit war auch die Anreise problemlos.

Wir haben den Aufenthalt genossen und kommen gerne wieder.
