Peaceful private haven in great location
Lemonia Cottage is a lovely little dwelling in a very private, beautiful location. It was exceptionally clean and well furnished. Fantastic views of Skopelos Town and the harbour, you can sit on the patio and watch the yachts and ferries sailing in and out. Far enough out of town to be peaceful but close enough for the reasonably fit to walk in and out, which we found to be great for dining out in Skopelos town without having the hassle of driving and parking. The owners, Sue and Gordon, met us off the ferry and made sure we found our way straight to the cottage. They were contactable if needed, and proved a useful source of local knowledge. Food at Alexanders Garden Taverna was really good, Magic Car Rental extremely helpful.
Coast/Beach: There are many beaches to explore around the island for which we supply various maps. Some accessible by bus, or car and some by boat and some by foot. Each beach has its own special appeal and character. Travel: The neighbouring island of Skiathos has the nearest airport and a regular fast boat or ferry service takes you to Skopelos in under one hour passing beautiful uninhabited islands. Dolphins are often seen swimming alongside the boat during the journey. Distances: 3km to the town and nearest beach. A good bus service runs the entire length of the island from Skopelos town to Glossa and Loutraki where there are several good tavernas and restaurants. Being only 13 miles long and passing many beaches on route, it is easy to experience a good variety of beaches. Car hire is recomended. With a car one can enjoy the adventure of exploring along some of the dirt roads that take you to forests, mountains and deserted beaches and the beautiful monasteries. Further Details: Skopelos old town is only 3km away down the hillside. You will find a wealth of harbourside Tavernas and cafes all offering similar menus at reasonable prices or you may wish to try one of the restaurants tucked away inside the town itself. Whatever your choice you can't beat dining alfresco! There are many supermarkets to choose from in and around the town as well as a fish market and fruit and veg market (in season). Also a visit to one of the bakeries is a must. For those who enjoy shopping you will find many interesting little shops offering Skopelos made ceramics and paintings, unusual and individual clothes and fine jewelry. There are also two museums in the old town which are well worth visiting as Skopelos has a long and interesting history.
