Cottage in Stafilos, Skopelos, Sporades Islands, Greek Islands, Greece - Peaceful Location, 20 Minutes Walk To Stafylos And Velanio Beach
Privacy, seclusion and comfort in a traditional cottage; the perfect setting for a peaceful holiday in natural environment. This delightful cottage is located at the very end of a large private land, 1.350 meters from Stafilos beach, one of the island's most beautiful and popular. Charming Skopelos Town with its harbour, the hub of the island, offering a full array of restaurants, bars and shops is 3 km away. There is plenty of space to park your rental car or bike, or alternatively, we are on the main bus route which services all of the island's beaches and towns. The bus stops 130 meters from the end of the driveway. In walking distance you will find Greek taverns and super market, operating from May to October. Air-conditioning, Television, Private Parking. The cottage has a wonderfully large outdoor patio with dining table and umbrella. There are available two sun beds for keeping up your holiday tan and a shower in the yard for keeping you cool and fresh while sunbathing.

Everything we hoped it would be and more!
We were absolutely delighted with Christina Cottage, which is set back from another property owned by the family, down a pretty lane amongst olive trees and a delightful garden. Loungers, chairs and hammocks are provided for guests to relax in the garden, which you have exclusive use of. The cottage is well provided with a good sized kitchen, bathroom (the washing machine was a real bonus for us), sitting area a large (and new) double bed upstairs on the mezzanine area. The cottage has airconditioning but we found that due to the design of the cottage (high ceilings) it was cool enough even in August without it.
The location is excellent as it is both peaceful and near to amenities - c. 10 minutes by car or bus to Skopelos town and within walking distance to Stafylos beach and taverneras. Terpsis Restaurant was our favourite.
By far the best thing about our stay was the warm hospitality we recieved from Kostas, Mina and thier daughter, Irene (we briefly also met Christina, Mina and Kostas' eldest daughter) . Kostas was kind enough to pick us up and drop us off at the port and Mina had prepared for us marmalades and fruit in syrup from her garden. We would definitely recommend Christina Cottage (if you are looking for a peaceful holiday) and hope to return in the near future.
(emails and questions about booking answered very quickly by Mina).

Nice place to stay, and householders are lovable!
Simply perfect! The Christina Cottage is placed quite far from the main house, surrounded by olive trees. A nice Patio is in the fron of the houe, where have a Relaxing breakfast and tasty dinners. Householders are perfect! I recommend Christina Cottage to everybody who love peaceful and relaxing places
Thank you very much Massimo for the lovely feedback ! I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay! We are waiting for you again in the future!
A Perfect Place to Get Away From It All
Christina Cottage more than lived up to its description. Set away from the road and surrounded by olive and walnut trees - perfect for lazing in a hammock, listening to the distant tinkling of goats' bells.
Everything about the cottage was well equipped and clean - kitchen, bathroom, towels and bedding. MIna came in to clean every few days. The kitchen is more than adequate for cooking 'proper' meals.
Mina and Kostas were kindness itself, and always attentive to our needs, from the very first when they met us from the ferry. And it was fun to watch Kostas harvesting the walnuts.
A hire car is a good idea. The cottage is well placed for exploring the island, and the well-stocked supermarket is only a mile away.
A lovely place.
Thank you very much. We are glad to have given hospitality to you as you are really nice people and we wish to see you again in the future!
Beautiful Garden and Cottage
At the end of a garden filled with Flowers, Olive Trees, Walnut Trees and surrounded by wandering Goat Herds, Christina Cottage is set back about 100 meters from the Road between Skopelos Town and Stafylos Beach. The only threat to Peace, Quiet and tranquillity are the Cicadas which are amazing and Goat Bells.
The Cottage is very clean, comfortable and well equipped. It's located about a mile from the Beach with 3 good Tavernas on route and two miles from Skopelos town in the other direction. There's a well stocked large Supermarket about a mile along the way.
It's possible to survive without a car, Mina and Kostas are more than happy to pick you up from the Port but it's well worth hiring a car even if only for a few days to discover some of the other charms of this delightful island. There is a regular Bus service from here to both Stafylos and Skopelos Town although we walked most days to the Beach which is very clean (pebble and sand - Umbrella and 2 Sunbeds at 6 euros a day) with a nice bar and lovely sheltered bay with Backdrop for simply wallowing in.
We would also highly recommend a day out from the Port in a Sailing Boat to Alonissos. We went with Vasily and his dog Pirate. The nearby fishing village of Agnodas is also a beautiful spot to watch the Sunset from one of the Beach front Tavernas .
It was great to give hospitality to you! Thank you very much for the review and we will be glad to see you again in the future!
We would recommend Villa Christina and the island of Skopelos to family and friends. Approximately 15 minute walk to the closest beach, and 3km from the town of Skopelos, so ideal location really. What a beautiful and lovingly maintained little cottage! We stayed at Villa Christina on our honeymoon, and had the most lovely time, it is an easy place to relax with such beautiful surroundings. The island of Skopelos is magical; full of flora and fauna, mountainous pine forests, the distant jingle of goats bells, honey bees, crystal clear Aegean Sea, beautiful beaches, an abundance of lovely food and some really picturesque places to eat by the beach, live greek music, and a romantic town with winding streets and whitewashed houses with blue shutters and flowers growing absolutely everywhere. It really is paradise island! And possibly the friendliest place known to mankind! Enjoy.
Thank you very much for your kind words. We are waiting for you again in the future.
