Villas in Skopelos

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 pre book transfers from Skiathos airport to the island of Skopelos via ferry or hydrofoil. The hydrofoil and ferry service from Skiathos takes a mere twenty minutes to reach the small port of Glossa at the island’s north-western tip, and a further 40 minutes to reach the main port in Skopelos. You will disembark the ferry at either Glossa or Skopelos port, depending on the ferry timetable or location of your villa.
