Island holiday w/all amenities, easy to reach from Athens airport
Our lone-standing house (snow-white walls, light-blue doors, windows and closets) was built in 2010. It is located on a slight slope above the harbour city of Skala with sea view to south and east. The house has 2 balconies on the upper floor, which offer a great view of the island and sea; with clear weather you can see other islands like Ikaria and Leros. On the ground floor you will find partially covered pergolas, equipped with a large dining table and seats, cushions and chairs. The house is surrounded by a nice garden on two sides. Loungers invite you to relax and sunbathe. There is also an outdoor shower. The location is very peaceful; there are a few other (holiday) homes around.

Peaceful holidays in a beautiful house with a very homely atmosphere!
Beautiful house decorated with great taste, very clean, well equipped with everything we needed, very well located near the port of Patmos (walking distance if need be).
It provided enough isolation and quietness but also good connection with the villages around.
Nice views and quite protected from the strong winds in most parts of the house and the outdoor spaces (but not in one of the bedrooms, where the wind is much more audible when it blows strong).
Great hospitality by the host/owners (Lis and Marc) who were very kind and offered a birthday cake for a celebration we had during our staying in their house. Lovely gesture, thank you!

Great stay in Patmos
Very nice and clean house, perfectly located to discover the island.
We enjoyed a lot the terraces, and the quietness of the area.
Our family stayed for 10 days in early February and found Patmos and this villa on the edge of Skala a perfect retreat. Home is like something experienced in the writing of Gerald Durrel, but better 'house equipped' - it had everything you'd need for a comfortable stay. It was just 15 mins walk into the town for shopping, about one hour up to the Monastery via the old donkey track, and about two hours to the northern tip of the island. We had sunshine, wind, lovely clouds and some downpours, but our outstanding memory of Patmos will be this lovely 'Skala Blue' villa overlooking the town.
Our stay on Patmos
We had a wonderful holiday in this house on Patmos! Everything was just perfect! Very nice and clean house in a very quiet area, but only a small walk away from the centre of Skala. The house had everything we needed - from a fully equipped kitchen 'till candelights for an outside evening dinner. We enjoyed the terraces, the outdoor shower and the beautiful view you have from up there.
Patmos is a great island if you are looking for a peaceful and relaxing holiday, and this house was perfect for that. We definitely want to come back!

Sehr schönes Haus, hatten einen schönen Urlaub! Kommen gern wieder!
Wonderful stay in a beautiful house
My stay in Patmos and in this lovely house on top of a small hill in particular was absolutely marvelous! The house itself is furnished beautifully and with a lot of love for detail. The garden is full of extremely colourful flowers and and the several terraces offer a stunning view! I absolutely enjoyed its calm and relaxing atmosphere. It is close to the centre as well as to the bus, which conveniently takes you to some very incredible beaches around the island. Living in a busy city like London, this vaccation was the most amazing relaxation, made possible especially through having this beautiful and cosy home!
Patmos is a small, quiet island (3000 residents) in the eastern Aegean (Dodekanes) and is located between Samos and Kos. There is no airport, thus, no mass tourism. Skala is the harbour city with a lot of good shops and taverns. Chora with the 900-year-old monastery (World Heritage Site) is on the hill and is mostly free of traffic. There are a lot of small, nice beaches, normally with a tavern nearby. You can reach a lot of places on foot, by boat or public bus (we have gone to Patmos for 30 years and haven't had to rent a car). Our house can be reached easily from Skala (10 min. from harbour). Grocery store & bakery halfway in between marina and house.
