    • Mr Snitter, July 2016

      Inner Beauty of Skopelos was Undeniable

      Having been to Mallorca (James Villas), Crete (all-inclusive), Turkey (James Villas) & Kefalonia (Villa Plus) we thought we had experienced the best villas & best of the local country experience.

      Skopelos was unexpected and shone above all the rest. The island's beaches were not as beautiful as Kefalonia, the night-life definitely behind Turkey & Mallorca, but the inner beauty of Skopelos was undeniable. No pretence whatsoever. No touristy things like water-parties etc But the more we realised that this is an island that is what it is and no pretences. It doesn't matter if you loved Mamma Mia or not. Take it or leave it, this place is unspoilt and simple and we should all aim to leave it this way.

      As for Villa Elena, what can we say? The view is to die for, night & day. And soooo peaceful. This has been the most chilled and laid back holiday we have ever had. So kick back and enjoy. One thing I would say though, don't miss Kastani beach. The beach is lovely and clean/clear, but the chilled music in the bar was a real magnet for us (and we are both in our 50s/60s!) The walk (trek) to the pirates graves was a real adventure. Do it!!!

Berkshire Family of four with
Everything was wonderful when we arrived however we did find the fact that you were not allowed to put the air con lower than 23 degrees frustrating. Also that the doors and windows had sensors so that you couldn't leave the air con on whilst you were not in the house to cool it down. This all made for rather uncomfortable nights sleeping. Because we did not understand about the whole house having sensors the first night we thought the air con was broken so slept with the windows open and because the insect screens did not work we all got bitten. The air con stipulations should be on your website. Our other problem was the vast amounts of wasps on the island I have never seen so many and it has put us off going back to the island. This really should be mentioned as two members of our family were stung, one of which had an allergic reaction. Overall the stay was peaceful and the lovely old gentleman brought us some home grown fruit which was fantastic. Pool and BBQ were great so would recommend but would highlight the air con and wasps.

I'm not sure about the value for money as I don't know enough about the market. We were very happy with the villa. However, we were told that a car was essential. This is not true as we were quite happy to walk into town, and get taxis home (the charge was 10 euros for 4 adults). Taxis / buses could have been used for travelling round the small island.

We have stayed at many villas on Skopelos which we have all liked but this Villa is fantastic in every way and the best views we have had. Superb in every way.

Penarth, Cardiff Couple
Villa Elena fully met our expectations - really lovely villa which is well-appointed and with some equipment we wouldn't normally expect to find (eg Bluetooth player). The villa is beautifully situated with fabulous views and is fairly close to the town although a car is essential. We would certainly recommend this villa and would definitely stay here again.

One small point - had we eaten in more often we would have found some of the kitchen utensils to be inadequate (notably the garlic crusher and the corkscrew). There was also an absence of a good set of kitchen knives. These are really quite minor points which did not marr our enjoyment.

Brilliant location with a villa lacking nothing! Pool area great and views fantastic! Let down by local dogs barking through most nights and the fire alarm being faulty causing a little stress at 3.00am!
