Occupying a stunning hilltop position, with magnificent views of the countryside towards the picturesque Skopelos town and across the sea towards the neighbouring island of Alonissos, is our villa Ouranos. Internally, the owner has created a beautifully styled and furnished property, while the gardens and outside terraces have been planted with a variety of flowers and plants, creating an attractive area for relaxing days by your pool.
Holidays are a big deal. So going that extra mile to make it special can make all the difference.
Our Signature villas add those all-important special touches.
The pool towels are included. The barbecue is big enough to prepare a tasty feast for the whole family. The master bedroom boasts a king size bed for added comfort. Your villa will have one bathroom per two bedrooms, with at least one ensuite or a bathroom per bedroom. The TV has multiple English channels. Kick start the day with fresh coffee using your own machine. You'll even find the fun factor with a games facility!
Signature villas have all of these amazing added touches - but you're in control of your signature style!
If you can't think of anything better than lazing by the pool which overlooks breathtaking views, we'll have a Signature villa to put you in prime position to take it all in.
All about location, location, location? Our Signature villas are situated both right in the middle of the action and in beautifully secluded spots. What do you prefer?

A Wonderful Week
We have had a wonderful week! The snorkelling around Skopelos has been great, especially at Milia Beach as the water is so clear. It is also a peaceful beach. We also visited the Mamma Mia chapel which is definitely worth going to - it is in a beautiful location! As well as this, we would recommend eating at Agnanti in Glossa - the food is good and it is a friendly restaurant. Thank you to the owners for the delicious cake and honey. We have really enjoyed our stay and would love to come back to Skopelos sometime soon!

A Message to the Owners
We just wanted to send a message to say thank you for a lovely holiday at villa Oranous. The island of Skopelos was just beautiful and we really enjoyed exploring the various sights (and plenty of beaches of course).
We also wanted to send a specific message to the owners of the villa to say thank you very much for their hospitality and generosity whilst we were there. So far it is the best holiday we have had.

We echo in every way the sentiments expressed by those privileged enough to have stayed at this quite extraordinarily lovely place. Everything that we hoped for come true. Skopelos is one of the most beautiful islands we have visited. This villa is in a stunning location and is so beautifully appointed that you want for nothing and feel completely free to enjoy the atmosphere and very special energy of this wonderful island. We were extremely well cared for by the owners and the Rep, all of whom have been remarkable in going beyond what might be expected. Enjoy your time here, we certainly did.
Mr Bicknell, August 2014
Villa was wonderful. The outside spaces, coupled with the breathtaking views, made the whole holiday something special.. The owners were delightful and very generous with their home baking and the freedom they gave us to pick the figs and the plums straight from the trees
Mr Bicknell, August 2014
A wonderful 2 weeks in Skopelos. We have always loved the island , this was our 11th holiday here but never enjoyed such a wonderful villa, the views are amazing.
Mrs Yeandle, July 2014
Villa Ouranos was beautifully maintained and the owners were pleasant and helpful. It had all the comforts of being at home with the advantage of having fabulous weather!
Mrs Williams, June 2014
We have loved staying in this villa and our time spent on Skopelos. Limonan beach is lovely with a lovely taverna at the back, we recommend the pitta dish and the Souvlaki. Great holiday!
Mr Allsop, May 2014
A beautiful and charming island with lots to explore. The villa is one of the best we have ever stayed in and the owners are such a lovely couple. We had some lovely meals out but also really enjoyed having a meal in the wonderful villa. Our little girl really enjoyed days in the pool as did we.
Mr Pooley, May 2014
Our first visit to Skopelos, the most charming Greek island we have visited with the clearest sea and the prettiest wild flowers. Our favourite was watching the sun go down at the fish tavernas at Agnondas Bay. Most of the dirt tracks are not on the map but well worth taking if you are a good driver, not for the faint hearted but some amazing views. Thank you to the owners for letting their beautiful villa and their Skopelitan generosity. It was the best villa we had been to and we had a super holiday and we will certainly keep it in mind for a return visit.

Mr Huggins, September 2013
Great island, fantastic villa with a beautiful view. Had a great time, we will be back. Thank you to the owners for the cake and gift.
Mr Green, August 2013
This is out first visit to Skopelos and we have loved the island. Two weeks has not been long enough. The villa is in a great location and it has been a great base for us. We hope to return to Skopelos again soon.
Mr Jones, August 2013
Our fourth visit to this beautiful island. This villa takes some beating! Really well equipped and a beautiful location. Loved going to the taverna at the bottom of the road and Milini beach and Agios Ioannis, Mamma Mia church. Thank you for making us so welcome, the cake and the presents. We would love to come back here in the future.
Mr Binnie, July 2013
Beautiful villa, beautiful island. People very friendly. Trip to Mamma Mia church well worth the scary drive also many lovely small villages along the road which are worth a look.
Mr Blumenthal, May 2013
One week is too short a time to stay in this lovely villa in such a beautiful spot with such special and friendly owners.

Mr Deer, September 2011
What a fantastic villa with breathtaking views!
We have spent a very relaxing 2 weeks here and would love to have stayed longer.
Mr GROCOTT, August 2011

Mr Inglis, July 2011
Skopelos will spoil us for any other Greek Island. View from villa fantastic. We will definately be back.

Mrs Woodhams, June 2011
The details in your catalogue and on-line did not do the villa justice, it was excellent, and the owners were such nice people.
Mr Birchley, June 2010
We've loved staying at this house, its been a pleasure to meet the villa owners and their sons. We've spent a good part of the holiday relaxing around the villa, eating breakfast overseeing the view, watching the swallows swoop down, smelling the roses and finally watched the world go by eating dinner, usually in the town. We sat outside the villa and admired the starry lights, and we saw the sights we needed to see too!
Mr Hollingsworth, May 2010
We have loved every moment of our short stay here. We will be very sad to leave the villa and Skopelos. It has been idyllic, peaceful and nothing short of perfect. The house, pool and garden are all immaculate with stunning views. The perfect location, although we have been torn between venturing off and staying here to enjoy the villa.
Mrs Ellis, May 2010
Beautiful villa, stunning views and great hospitality from the owners. We enjoyed the lovely garden and the pool area. Everywhere is so well cared for.
A great holiday!
Great villa in stunning location with terrific views. Clean, comfortable and highly recommended so long as you like 'remote'. No immediate neighbours. Wonderful fruit trees and lovely owners who visited twice. Be nice to have outdoor bbq rather than external kitchen but other than that pretty near perfect. Only gripe was the myriad light switches all through the villa which means you never quite get used to which switches what on and off! Great holiday.

This was our fourth holiday on Skopelos and we would say that this was the best villa by far.

Excellent villa with good size pool and very clean. Lovely views of Skopelos. Road up to villa steep and very uneven. Didn't meet the owners but we did receive a cake and a gift which was very thoughtful. Recommend this villa.

Stunning location, beautiful villa. Would love to go back.
Confirmed guest: 24 June 2016 Published on: 27 June 2016 10 out of 10
The villa far exceeded our expectations, we cannot fault it. We saw the owners on 3 occasions when they came to maintain the pool and look after the gardens (we had cleaners on a seperate day) and on the first visit they brought a delicious home made cake and on their final visit they brought their own honey as a gift. So thoughtful.
It is a shame there are so many other places to visit in the world, if I had my choice, I wouldn't choose anywhere else!

What a wonderfully relaxing week in Villa Ouranus! It is in a fantastic, isolated position in Pefkias, with views over Skopelos Town. The villa is quite luxurious, with many little touches that make it feel like home from home. We ended up playing a game to try to find something to criticise about the villa and failed miserably! The owners are a lovely couple who went out of their way to make us feel welcome. We greatly appreciated the gifts of cake, wine and honey, from their own hives. We would have no hesitation in returning to this villa, we have stayed in many villas on a number of Greek Islands and this really is one of the best we have found.
