An authentic traditional whitewashed stone house in the centre of the unique Town of Skopelos, with wooden frames and ceilings inside. A three floors house fully equipped with a traditional and very fine furniture, panoramic view towards the port from the large blue balcony on the last floor, very close to the port promenade with cafès, restaurants, supermarkets and big parking place. In the area of the house you will find many shops too, that sell everything you need. However, the house alley is very quiet.
THE HOUSE: On the ground floor there is a kitchen on a wooden raised platform, totally equipped (four hot plates, electric oven, shelves and cupboards), a table with chairs for six to eight persons, a bathroom with shower and two big ancient jars made of terracotta. The pavement is traditional too, composed by large sheets of grey schist. On the first floor, where you can access by a wooden stair, there are two wide double bedrooms and a big bathroom with shower and window. A second entrance leads to this floor from the alley on the backside of the house. By another wooden stair you can reach the last floor, where you will find a very bright open living-room sheltered by a high ceiling made of wooden slats as well as the pavement. In the room there are sofas, armchairs and corner seats, as well as a big wooden table with chairs and an old writing-table. There is a big flat screen TV with satellite antenna. From the traditional blue wooden balcony you can admire the view of the Skopelos town’s red roofs and the port bay surrounded by green hills.
The house has internet wi-fi connection.
SKOPELOS TOWN: Skopelos Town has all the services you may need (parking places, post office, supermarkets, internet cafes, taxi service, bus station, etc.) and all the recreation facilities you can desire (excellent restaurants and traditional taverns, lounge bars with sofas on the promenade, shops that sell souvenirs, jewels, dresses and pottery, ice cream parlors, bakeries and patisseries where you can have a rich breakfast), while the whole island is a continuum of wonderful pine forests and white churches where you can do short trips and excursions all year long and heavenly bays and shores with crystalline and lukewarm waters where you can stay all day long in spring and summertime.
You can move on the island with your own vehicle, or you can rent a car or a scooter. If you prefer, you can use the very functional bus service that goes along the perimeter road with stops at each shore.
The island of Skopelos allows to choose between the clearest Aegean sea and the most flourishing countryside, between the quiet of the pine forests and the monasteries and the happy chaos of the cafes and the crowded taverns, passing through a walk in the alleys of the traditional town with its whitewashed walls and multicolored balconies, in the most authentic Greek scenery.
