Skopelos villa holidays

Skopelos is the largest island in the Northern Sporades group, yet remains charmingly untainted by mass tourism. Lush green hillsides carpeted with pine and olive trees sweep down across the countryside, earning Skopelos its worthy title of ‘the Emerald of the Aegean’. Its pretty white-washed houses spill in layers down the hillsides giving a truly Greek scene whilst the dense pine forests provide a beautiful backdrop for olive groves and wonderful plum, almond and citrus orchards. Days can be spent exploring the wonderful interior of the island, lounging on lovely sand and shingle beaches and discovering pebble coves. This unspoilt island is reached from the neighbouring island, Skiathos. Guests can pre book tansfers from Skiathos airport to the island of Skopelos via ferry. The fast hydrofoil service from Skiathos takes a mere twenty minutes to reach the small port of Loutraki at the island’s north-western tip, you will disembark the ferry at either Loutraki or Skopelos port, depending on the location of your villa.

About Skopelos

Local cuisine in Skopelos

Across the island there are a variety of local amenities and tavernas offering traditional Greek fare. However, for a wider variety a visit to Skopelos Town should not be missed. The harbour is the hub of Skopelos Town; here, you can enjoy one of the mouth watering traditional dishes accompanied by a glass of chilled Retsina in one of the many waterfront cafes, bars and tavernas.

Outdoor pursuits in Skopelos

This mountainous island offers many natural ravines, gorges and miles of old mule tracks winding across the island for walkers to explore and admire. You can join an organised walk to go bird or butterfly watching or explore the beautiful countryside with a picnic. The narrow streets of the old town are well worth a visit, and an organised walk can be taken. The pathways and stairs are quite steep but the magnificent views make the effort worthwhile!

On the beach in Skopelos

The beaches are a must – choose from sand, shingle or sheltered pebble coves. Whichever you choose, the crystal clear water lapping the shore will appeal to swimmers, snorkellers and divers alike. Boat trips are available from many bays and should you wish, inter-island ferries let you explore the nearby islands.

After Sundown in Skopelos

Steeped in history, everywhere you turn in Skopelos there is a reminder of the rich culture of Greece. There are ruins in Glossa dating from 400 BC and ancient walls from the Byzantine time. Skopelos Town itself is built at the foot of a Venetian Castle, whilst at Cape Gourouni the northern most point of the island, the monastery of the Aghios Taxiarchos, can be found. Built on the ruins of a 7th century Byzantine church and featuring a working lighthouse, with spectacular views.

James recommends
  • Enjoy a long lazy lunch in one of the many waterfront tavernas, whilst surrounded by wonderful scenery.
  • Explore the beautiful countryside on one of the many walking trails which wind high into the hills, drawing you through the famous olive groves and plum orchards.
  • Take a boat trip to the neighbouring island of Alonissos and you will be rewarded with natural beaches and a beautiful coastline. If you are lucky, you may catch a glimpse of dolphins in the clear blue waters.
  • Enjoy the peaceful, secluded coves and bays which can be found dotted around the Skopelos coastline.

Skopelos was a quiet Island which has not been overdeveloped, we liked the fact that it is not too crowded and we were not looking for night life, hence not answering the question above.
The coastline and views were stunning and the people very friendly. Also the walks and flora were lovely and great to see the multi coloured beehives and brown goats.
The restaurants were welcoming and the food was local and good value for money.
Too many cats around your feet in restaurants wanting tit bits.
One or two of the unmade roads had dangerous gulleys but I guess that makes them quieter.

The island is certainly very beautiful with outstanding scenery & some quite spectacular views.
By our second week, several of the restaurants in Skopelos Town were already closed.
