About the property

'Heaven on Earth' JLM's review, 'Magical Place' Yeatman's review

For relaxing holidays, you can't beat this detached cottage with its pool in a large enclosed garden; set amongst the verdant hills of the island, it has been lovingly restored to provide all modern facilities, yet preserved many of the features of an old traditional property. A big joy of this property is the large terraced areas surrounded by a fenced garden with trees and flowers, that you can enjoy at different times of the day. The roomy terrace is a lovely sheltered spot with shade provided by trees or covered patios, and color provided by potted flowers. There is plenty of room to sunbathe, to enjoy the views and the stunning sunset, or to dine outside; there is also a stone-built barbeque perfect for outdoor cooking. Whether you choose to take your breakfast and meal, or sunbathe by he pool, enjoying the verdant hills and lush countryside, garden furniture and sun beds are at your disposal. There is a small front terrace, off the living room with views to the sea.

PYRGOS AREA: A holiday in the area of Pyrgos would suit those who would like to be not far from the beautiful beaches of Skopelos and do not mind being away from - but within easy reach of - Skopelos Town. The area consists of wooded hillsides, olive groves, plum or almond orchards and vineyards. Pyrgos is sparsely inhabited and a holiday here is generally a quiet affair.

Quiet property in a stunning location

  • 4 of 5

We had a very peaceful stay at the Blue Cottage, located in a very quiet part of the island only 15 minutes from Skopelos Town, with a stunning view of the interior of Skopelos but possible to see the sea. The cottage has all the facilities required, a great pool, a bbq, lots of areas outside to sit and relax. No wifi and limited mobile coverage but that was great as it meant we could get away from our electronic gadgets! Can't recommend it enough.

If you want peace and quiet, then it's perfect

  • 4 of 5

The garden and the pool are lovely, it's like being in your own Mamma Mia movie. You have two hammocks and so many nice places to sit and eat or read or just relax.

Unfortunately the pool was not really warm (the nights were not warm either, which was good and bad at the same time) and there were lots of bees in the garden because of all those lovely fruit trees. The Kids were quite frightened at the beginning and unfortunately there's nothing you can do about it.

It's quiet, no neighbours, you can sit outside and listen to loud music or let the Kids play in the pool forever. Nobody cares up there :)

What was not perfect for us: we have two Kids age 9 and 5, but the major bedroom was in the upper house. There are 2 houses, built next to each other. In the upper house you have the major bedroom, kitchen, bathroom & livingroom. In the second house you have 2 sleepingrooms with 2 single beds in each room and 1 bathroom. There is NO door to the Kids room from upstairs which meant, either we let our two girls sleep downstairs alone and if the wake up at night they have to walk through the dark garden alone to find us in the other house or, and that's what we did, you don't use the major bedroom at all and move into the other bed room downstairs. It was ok, but very small and the second bedroom doesn't even have a window, the nicest room is the major bed room in the upper house and we couldn't stay there because our Kids are far too young to sleep in their own house on their own... I would have preferred to know this before we get there. So the two houses are perfect for Teenagers and their parents, but not for such Young Kids as ours. Also, you definately need a car, theres is nothing rechable by foot. But we knew that. Dimitris helped us to get a rental car and even picked it up for us. Thank you! :)

There is no WLAN in the house or anywhere close to the house, there is actually hardly any mobile connection possible. But that was fine for us, so we couln't work or do something on the computer. :)

Dimitris and his parents were very nice and they cleaned the two houses and the pool/garden every 3 days. They also brought us traditional dishes, which we really enjoyed.

It was a very nice stay at Skopelos and we were able to relax a lot :)

Perfect Greek cottage

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place to stay. So peaceful often the only sounds were the tinkling of the goat bells on the hills and the crickets. Even though the photographs are beautiful the reality is even better. Picking figs, grapes, apples and plums from the terraced gardens was an unexpected treat. The outdoor spaces are extensive and beautifully planted and arranged. indoors is very well equipped and comfortable housed 5 of us. Dimitris and his family could not have been more helpful keeping the cottage spotless with regular visits and bringing us wonderful homemade treats each time. I have travelled extensively and never usually bother with reviews but this stay was so exceptional I had to write a review. Wish we were back there!

Sweet, secluded, homey...a little gem!

  • 5 of 5

The Blue Cottage is as the green, quiet countryside of Skopelos. The house itself is well-cared for with fantastic outdoor space to gather, eat, swing in the hammocks, etc. We had 6 family members staying in it, and it was perfect. The house has everything needed, and it was a pleasure to explore the walking paths around it. While private, it is only 20 minutes drive from town, beaches, etc. Dimitri and his family were great. They even provided us with a delicious birthday cake!

Erholung pur

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben 2 herrliche Wochen in der Blue Cottage verbracht. Ein ganz wundervoller Ort, wenn man sich nach Stille und Ruhe sehnt. Schon bei der Anfahrt zum Haus über das ginsterbewachsene Sträßchen hatten wir das Gefühl, dass wir uns den richtigen Ort ausgesucht haben. Morgens hörten wir nur das Zwitschern der Vögel und das Summen der Bienen. In den Nächten beglückte uns die Nachtigall mit ihrem Gesang, während die Fledermäuse im Tiefflug über den Pool segelten. Das Außengelände mit Pool, Garten, Grill, Liegen und Hängematten übertraf unsere Erwartungen sogar noch. Im Haus ist alles sauber, ordentlich und zweckmäßig eingerichtet. Mit den Eltern von Dimitris hatten wir trotz Sprachbarrieren ein sehr herzliches Verhältnis. Sie kümmerten sich ganz liebevoll um uns und luden uns sogar ein, alles was im Garten reifte -z. Bsp. Kirschen- zu ernten.

Was man in jedem Fall braucht ist ein Mietwagen, um an die Strände, Tavernen oder zum Einkaufen zu fahren. Unsere Lieblingsstrände waren übrigens Limnonari, Agnondas und Milia. Auch die dazugehörigen Tavernen waren ganz nach unserem Geschmack. Wir können das Anwesen und diese wunderschöne grüne Insel in jedem Fall weiterempfehlen. 5 Sterne.
