Guestbook comments from the owner

Jane D

The entire experience at Villa Aloupi was flawless. From our arrival by ferry to be greeted by Kostas and transported to a little piece of paradise. The villa sits overlooking Skopelos town and bay. Everything in the villa is of fine quality and designed to make you feel at home. The pool is glorious, shaded by ancient trees always with a shady place to read. We cooked our fresh fish from the market in the coal outside oven and sat on the terrace listening to crickets and the waves. Kostas and Voula are the perfect hosts. Nothing is too much trouble. They share their island knowledge with absolute generosity and give their time to ensure the most is made of every minute. A truly wonderful experience. We can't wait to return.

JUST A DELIGHT!

  • 5 of 5

We were so impressed last year, we just had to come back and am pleased to say we had yet another fabulous stay. Kostas was his usual perfect host, can not do enough for you with Galina unintrusively keeping the place spotlessly clean. It really does feel like a home from home, so peaceful, so relaxing, a week just was not enough.Looking forward to returning already.

Stunning villa!

  • 5 of 5

A week was certainly not long enough at this stunning villa on the beautiful Island of Skopelos.

From the minute we arrived, where we were greeted at the port by Kostas to the minute we left, we were made so welcome, with Kostas attending to our every need.

The villa exceeded our expectations, along with the outside kitchen area and eco friendly pool - we couldn't have asked for anything more.

With the location of the villa set high above the town, the views were superb. The walk down to the town took about 15 minutes, the walk back up does take a little longer especially after some Greek red wine or Ouzo!

We would recommend hiring a car for a few days to explore the Island, and if you have time the Mamma Mia Chapel is worth a visit, especially if you are a fan of the movie.

Additional recommendation would include Dinner at Anna's restaurant where you can hear Kostas play traditional Greek music.

We would like to thank Kostas for his outstanding hospitality and would love to return one day.

A Truly Wonderful Villa

  • 5 of 5

I am slightly compromised writing this review as it feels like we have found something really really special that we want to keep to ourselves, our own little corner of paradise ! It was our first visit to Skopelos and it was so good we came back again in August and are already planning a return next year. It is a truly beautiful island easily accessable from Skiathos by ferry. We were a party of four and were met on arrival by the owner Kostas who along with his wife Voula couldnt have been more helpful throughout our stay, even helping me sort an issue with a hire car !!!

You are always a little anxious when you arrive at your holiday "home" as you so want the pictures and description to exceed your expectations. We had no need to worry. I can honestly say that the villa, pool and surroundings were exceptional. It is truly a little corner of paradise sitting above the town with stunning views of the port and the sea. The furnishings and facilities were of a very high standard. I can honestly say there was nothing we could fault

Skopelos is an amazing island and has many great restaurants, too many to list and review . I have no hesitation in recommending the villa and the lovely owners Kostas & Voula

Outstanding, can't speak highly enough of this stunning villa!

  • 5 of 5

First time visitors to Skopelos and first time we have stayed in a villa so what a great start. If future villas come anywhere near this one then we will be extremely happy.

Firstly, the owner Kostas could not have been more welcoming and attentive. From picking us up and dropping us back off at the port, helping with our cases, to taking us to the supermarket en route to the Villa initially to collect supplies as we did not have a car, to providing invaluable advice throughout re restaurants, beaches etc.

Kostas had also supplied some basic food and drink provisions which was a very nice touch.

The villa itself is stunning, both in its situation, magnificent views of the harbour from up on the hillside, the scale of the place, lots of room inside and out. Extremely peaceful and private, not overlooked at all, just you and the crickets. The pool and pool area was lovely and a good size.

Inside the villa is extremely well thought out and clearly the attention to detail is evident everywhere, cool white simple decor with lots of individual pieces to add colour and interest everywhere. Outside, the landscaping is equally stunning, of the highest standard with a magnificent barbeque area.

The Inside and out of the villa and pool area was maintained spotlessly throughout by Galina's daily morning visit. Would recommend this villa to everyone.

Just one note, that a car or suitable mode of a transport would make the trips back & to into the town a little easier. The magnificent views you enjoy from the villa mean that it is up on the hillside. We walked up & down which is no more than 10-15 mins but is quite a challenge.To be fair it seemed to get easier and quicker as the week went on but is a consideration.

Perfect holiday and faultless experience

  • 5 of 5

The warm welcome we received from Kostas began the moment we booked our holiday, several months prior to our two-week stay in June 2015.

By the time we arrived on Skopelos we felt almost like old friends, met by Kostas himself at the quayside and chauffeured up the steep, winding road to the villa – a helping hand we appreciated enormously. Our first sight of the house exceeded our already high expectations; the impressive photos on the website don’t do full justice to how smart, clean and spacious it is – and with those breathtaking views of the bay from the terrace. The villa is secluded, quiet, well-equipped and very comfortable, a perfect spot to get away from it all.

Skopelos is beautiful, its inhabitants are friendly and everything is good value – perhaps unsurprising for a visitor from the UK benefitting from the favourable £/€ rate and pre third-bailout economy in the early summer of 2015. It's not a big island, so you can cover most places with a car in a few days. That leaves plenty of time to lounge around the pool, explore the town, seek out the best restaurants.

As well as all these clear positives, perhaps our overwhelming memory is of the friendliness of Kostas and his wife, Vroula. Their good taste, attention to detail and care of their guests really are second to none. We found nothing to be too much trouble for them, whether assisting with occasional food shopping, helping out with a place to hire a car (go to Magic Cars for great customer service and a complimentary jar of homemade preserve – take note Hertz), advising on where to eat out, or being handed the secret of the shortcut walk into town.

We certainly plan to return.

Super stay in Villa Aloupi on Skopelos

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful Villa, all the facilities were excellent and well thought out. Everything in the Villa is of a very high quality and very tasteful. The villa is very spacious, very clean, light, air conditioned (which we needed during our little heat wave).

Beautiful pool area and floral garden. We used the BBQ and its seating area with super views over the harbour. Well done to Kostas the owner ! Kostas is a super host and really good to talk to about Greece and travelling around. We were collected at the Port and dropped off again when we left. The path to the town was a good walk in the heat but the pool was excellent to jump into afterwards. We travelled around this small island during our 2 weeks and found super beaches and tavernas. Our 2 weeks were simply splendid. We have enjoyed listening to Kostas CD which we bought from his shop. Many thanks again to Kostas and Voula for the fantastic holiday we had. Lisa, Max, Harry (18) Verity (18).

About The Experience

You're sitting down to a meal at this rental villa in Greece with some of your best companions. It's a warm evening so you're dining outside on the terrace, and as you enjoy the fresh fish you picked up from the market earlier that day, you glance out over the bay below. The glance becomes a stare; it's hard to take your eyes from the view provided by this Greece rental villa! Lights from traditional whitewashed houses ring the harbor, reflecting and flickering on the water. And that water-- you know it well, having been in it one way or another every day since your arrival. However, you're thinking about spending tomorrow at home, enjoying the comforts of your own Greece holiday villa, including a private swimming pool..
