Overview

Sporades Villa Rental Photos and Description

Pefkias is a place to truly relax. “For peace, privacy and postcard-worthy views in a great location, Pefkias is - quite simply - perfect.”

Here and there you'll see old stone villas and hushed holiday homes peeking out among pine trees, olive groves and fruit trees. Naturally, the views here are superb. Look down to the wooded valleys and out to a sea that sparkles alluringly in the distance. If you're a fan of walking and hiking, you'll be in your element here. Pick a path down to the beaches of Limnonari and Agnondas. It'll take about an hour on foot but the sight that greets you is prize enough, with velvety sand giving way to warm crystal waters.

And even if you don't want to wonder that far, whichever direction you head in you'll come across bubbling springs and dinky chapels hiding in the hills. With its beautiful scenery and laid-back vibe.

Welcoming, warm, relaxing. Definitely coming back

  • 5 of 5

We spent an amazing Easter in Arktos in 2014. It was the perfect home for our family. Welcoming, warm, fully equiped, it offered exactly what we needed. Sheltered in the beautiful pine forest of Pefkias, it gave us the opportunity to rest in the absolute quiet,not far from the port where we could go for walks, shopping or eat at one of the restaurants. The layout of the house proved excellent as the bedrooms, spread on both sides of the house, with the living room and kitchen in between, allowed me to get up early, make my coffee and read my book in front of a beautiful window overlooking the lush mountains and the sea, without disturbing those still sleeping. During the day we enjoyed swimming in our pool and the children played endlessly in the house yard. In the evenings, having put the kids to bed, we used to sit with my husband in front of the pool and enjoy a bottle of wine. One thing is certain. We will surely visit again. Many thanks to the lovable hospitable owners who did everything possible to ensure a pleasant and enjoyable stay. We recommend it unreservedly as the best choice choice.

Definatelly suggested!

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I had a great experience booking Villa Arktos. It was our first time renting a house in Skopelos. The booking was all-in-one; we received our confirmation right away. We spoke about the details with the owner (Dimitri) a few times; he was very friendly, helpful and responsive.

The villa was stylish, commodious, well decorated, totally private and very very clean! The interior is fitted with all modern amenities to make our stay comfortable, safe and pleasurable and the beautiful views made our afternoons great. Stafylos beach is flat and sandy, both ideal for swimming for young children.

Everything was as it is described in the site. In our everyday routine, we continuously thinking about this place and the wonderful people who hosted us. From the very beginning we felt the warmness and the hospitality of the Greek culture and authenticity. We are expressing our thanks to Dimitri for the warm welcome; the attention to detail in every way was outstanding. We appreciated all the special touches. We highly recommend this place for couples or families!!!

The best vacation on the best Villa!

  • 5 of 5

Finding Villa Arktos and his owner Dimitris has been the best thing of our vacation! I can suggest Villa Skopelos to everybody:

- perfect location: in 10 min by car you can reach the nearest city and actually by car you can easily go everywhere in the island!

- perfect house: very well furnished and completely equipped. Swimmingpool to relax and a patio where you can have your meals. All is very clean and well done. Fantastic view!!!

- perfect owner: Dimitri helped us in all our vacation steps, from when we arrived on the island trough all the week. He called us two times just to know if everything was ok and he was ready to solve every problems!

If I'll come back in Skopelos I'll come back in this Villa for sure!

Una bellissima villa, nel silenzio e nella pace.

Una vista stupenda.

Le camere sono accoglienti, comode, pulite!

Ci sono tutti i comfort, come la tv, la lavastoviglie, la lavatrice, la macchina per il caffe, stoviglie di ogni genere, l'aria condizionata.

Le pulizie che vengono fatte sono accurate.

Il proprietario eccezionale e sempre disponibile!

Skopelos è un'isola meravigliosa, il mare è stupendo, le spiagge ben attrezzate, i ristoranti e localini molto caratteristici e divertenti.

consiglio di fare un giro in barca, ci sono delle calette meravigliose.

Siamo stati benissimo!!!

Translate the name and you'll start to understand a little more about Pefkias. It's Greek for Pine Tree so it'll come as no surprise that sun-dappled pine forests cloak the place, their sweet scent filling the air. Pefkias is a rural pocket of Skopelos with an enviable setting. It's only a ten minute drive down to Skopelos Town and ten minutes in the other direction to the pretty fishing village of Agnontas. Plus it's a few minutes' drive from the beaches that gild the southwest coast, among them one of the island's most seductive sandy stretches, Limnonari.

Here and there you'll see old stone villas and hushed holiday homes peeking out among pine trees, olive groves and fruit trees. Naturally, the views here are superb. Look down to the wooded valleys and out to a sea that sparkles alluringly in the distance. If you're a fan of walking and hiking, you'll be in your element here. Pick a path down to the beaches of Limnonari and Agnondas. It'll take about an hour on foot but the sight that greets you is prize enough, with velvety sand giving way to warm crystal waters.

And even if you don't want to wander that far, whichever direction you head in you'll come across bubbling springs and dinky chapels hiding in the hills. With its beautiful scenery and laid-back vibe.
