Sporades Cottage Rental Photos and Description

'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.

Suitability:
  • Long-term Renters Welcome
  • children welcome

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

  • 5 of 5

The Blue Cottage is as advertised...in 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.

Peaceful and Relaxin Blue Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Blue Cottage. The cottage itself is well equipped with everything you need, however we did not cook at all as there are so many restaurants to choose from. The cottage is central to most villages and is a great base to explore the island. As others have stated a car is essential.

The patio and gardens are very pretty with lots of colour from various plants and shrubs. The garden is terraced and has grape vines a variety of trees and shrubs. We particularly enjoyed picking the delicious cherries that grew in abundance.

We sat out on the patio in the evenings and watched the bats coming down to drink from the pool. The Blue Cottage is just as it looks in the photos and Dimtris and his mother were fantastic hosts. We would definitely recommend this property to anybody that wants peace and tranquillity on their holiday and would not hesitate to return ourselves.

Peaceful retreat

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent one week in the Blue Cottage, and we will always remember it. The villa is located in the middle of the island, surrounded by deep valleys and mountains. We started every day by jogging to a small church on the top of a nearby mountain, did yoga lessons and enjoyed our fruit yoghurt in the sun at the pool. It was wonderful. During the day, we discovered the whole island with our scooter, which is very easy due to the central location of the villa: Every beach, every town can be accessed very quickly (and the Delfi mountain is very close for hiking). Inside, the villa is cosy and tidy. Dimitris' parents came every few days to clean, and they brought with them tasty Skopelos cheese cake. All in all, it was really relaxing and we would always chose this accommodation if we come back to Skopelos again. Thank you for your hospitality!

Perfect hide-away with outstanding service

  • 4 of 5

This is a perfect house to experience the greek hospitality and explore the beautiful Skopelos island. Situated right in the middle of the island, no beach is farther away than 20 minutes by car. The cottage is neat and you are taken care of with overwhelming warmth by the hosting family. The roomy patio with pool, grill, sun beds, dinner table and several chill-out-areas makes it a perfect hide-away, only a 15 minutes drive from pleasant Skopelos town.

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.
