Whalley Family (the eldest child is at school)
- Villa Ouranos is truly lovely, set in a stunning location with amazing views across Skopelos town and harbour. Not overlooked, rural,yet within easy access of the town and the rest of the island with the hire car provided. It is very well equipped, and has a separate outside kitchen with BBQ. The night sky is spectacular with the Milky Way clearly visible overhead. The Villa has large grounds with plum, fig, walnut and olive trees which you are invited to help yourself to. The plums were in season whilst we were there and made an excellent breakfast. The owners Manolis and Athina made us feel very welcome without being intrusive, and we were welcomed with a home baked cake and some local produce, and presented with some leaving gifts. Cleaning and linen change is twice a week. In Skopelos town there are a few supermarkets were you can find most things but fresh meat and fish, but there are several excellent local butchers and fishmongers. We enjoyed a fantastic family holiday at Villa Ouranos, and would love to go back.
