Skopelos Villa Rental Photos and Description
2 Bedrooms, 2 bathrooms one is ensuite. Sleeps 4

Villa Eleonora is named after the falcons that swoop over its elevated position, the unspoiled hill village of Glossa is only 5 minutes away with its shops and reputably one of the best restarants on the island. Its secluded location is private, despite its proximity to the beaches, the port of Loutarki, the Mamma Mia church and Glossa village, and the villa is not overlooked by anything but the beautiful birds and wildlife. The views are truly staggering, taking in the islands of Evvia, Skiathos and the Pelion, and away to the mainland as far as Mt Parnassus and closer to home down to the village of Glossa and its port of Loutraki

The modern villa itself is built in the traditional style of the island, with open-beamed ceilings of chestnut and pine, wooden balconies and tiled roofs, complemented by a modern clean touch and all up-to-date fittings and equipment. It is a truly unforgettable experience.

There are plenty of outside spaces, verandahs, terraces, tables, shaded areas and a barbecue/rotisserie to enjoy and eat alfresco in the wonderful climate of this Greek Island paradise.

Located on own Grounds. Tranquil, unspoilt, elevated position about 10 mins from Local Village and Beach

Sleeps 4 (2 Bedrooms) and sofa bed in living area.

Outside: The house has been specifically designed to offer guests the maximum benefit of outdoor living. The balcony runs along two sides of the house and faces South West. Measuring 3m wide at the front it provides a perfect space to entertain and dine al fresco whilst taking in the stunning view over Loutraki harbour and the bay beyond. There is a sizeable patio area on the ground floor level, complete with tables, chairs, awnings and sun loungers. The barbecue area is located to the rear of the house, and is replete with sink and fridge. The pergola style roofing, and soft outdoor furnishings allow for a cool and relaxed dining alternative when the sun is at its zenith!

The private swimming pool has wooden pool furniture and looks out over the bay below, measures 8x4m has marble steps leading down into it. It . It is enclosed by railings, with a latched gate to restrict access by underage children. The property itself extends to 1.5 acres set out in terraces, gardens and indigenous trees, and therefore provides guests with privacy and space.

Coast/Beach: Our nearest swimming beach is a ten minute drive from the house. It is a sheltered, sandy, clean and safe beach. This beach adjoins the village and is therefore close to amenities such as shops, and restaurants. There are scores of small, private beaches and coves that are ideal for bathing and picnics to be found on both sides of the island as close as ten minutes from the house.

Further details

The two local villages Glossa and Loutraki offer a wide range of amenities such as restaurants, bars, shops, bakeries, chemists and banks. Glossa has a good tourist information center.

The nearest medical centre is in Skopelos.

Both Glossa and Loutraki offer excellent local colour in the form of restaurants and tavernas. For those seeking the bright light Skopelos offers a vibrant night life.

The local restaurants have a great variety of mainly Greek food to offer. Whether you are looking for a quick snack or a full on meal the island will meet your needs.

Hi I am from Ireland and have been coming to Skopelos since 2004. I have always enjoyed traveling and when I came to skopelos I liked it so much that when the opportunity came to build a villa here I seized it.

Shane Jackson purchased this villa in 2008

The land on which Villa Eleonora is built is in a private location, off a road that meanders into the interior of the island which is mainly forested. There are no buildings beside the property or within sight in the immediate area. to The left of the property and at the front it is designated forestry and on the right and behind families farm vines and fruit trees. Its a peaceful, private and tranquil place that I am always eager to return to.

I enjoy the Greek Island lifestyle, the people and the beauty that Skopelos gives to everyone. The villa enjoys literally breathtaking unspoilt views, of forest, sea, islands and the mainland beyond.

For walking or mountain biking it is perfect as there are tracks leading in different directions through the forest to both sides of the island whether it is to Agios Iannis the ‘Mamma Mia' church or to the other side of the island for the true adventurers. The village of Glossa is also very close by with various amenities including super markets and restaurants and ease of access to beaches nearby.

My first impression was the incredible view from this villa. The pictures are good, but the reality takes your breath away. Totally perfect for a getaway from it all. It has a gorgeous pool and open plan living space with lovely luxurious touches everywhere. You feel like you want to write a novel or just look at the Aegean all day. Skopelos is a wonderful place, but this house especially is a hidden gem. You cannot miss it, it has access to all the fun you want on the Island, but you can also just chill out and drink wine on the veranda and think how lucky you are to be there.

"An enchanting ,comfortable ,clean property in a stunning location"

The success of Villa Eleanora may be attributed to the owner whose vision and subsequent attention to detail ensures that his guests want for nothing .It not only benefits from a stunning location ,but is clean and very well appointed with its own pool and the spectacular views may be enjoyed in privacy .

Villa Eleonorae was a fantastic holiday villa. The views were just remarkable and the home itself was thoughtfully designed and beautifully outfitted. Shane was an excellent host, available as needed but not in any way obtrusive. In fact he helped us out enormously when our plane from athens to Skiathos caused us to miss the last ferry to Skopelos on our first day. Skopelos Island and Glossa in particular are wonderful places to visit and relax. There is not much to do on the island, so if going to beautiful beaches, eating in excellent and reasonably priced restaurants, interacting with friendly and generous people and coming home to a beautiful and comfortable villa do not sound like a good time to you, look elsewhere! It is worth mentioning that there is a wonderful super market, bakery and BBQ restaurant all very close by and easily accessible - even parking.

We were awstruck by the views the moment we arrived. The harmony of the villa, the colours in the bedrooms, the rugs,the china, the towels, the linen, all so lxurious.Every need has been catered for, we loved the hammock,the barbecue, the crystal clear pool...
The island is equally magical. Favorites were Kastani beach, Fat George's beach, the 'Mamma Mia' church...
Thank you shane for your huge hospitality and your non intrusive ability to make us feel so well looked after. We do hope tpe tp return to this magical place!
