      Our favourite Greek island

      Dear Demitris and Meni,

      Thank you for another wonderful stay at your home. It is with very heavy hearts we leave Villa Augusta which has felt like home for the past three weeks. Total relaxation on our favourite Greek island :)

      Thank you also for the lovely homemade cookies, they were a treat with our morning tea.

      Love and Best wishes.

    • Mrs Hinton, June 2017

      Looking after the cats!

      Dear Dimitris and Meni,

      Thank you so very much for our lovely chocolate cake and surprise present. The cake was so light and delicious, I am just sorry we couldn't manage to eat it all. The present is a beautiful souvenir of our time here. It won't be our last time in Augusta! This is our third visit to Skopelos and the best villa!

      Future guests. As the previous occupants fed the cats I thought we should carry on! Sorry. They've had food and milk (lots) a big bowl each - cat bowl, morning and evening.

      If we had had more time here for a trip to the vets for them both we would have done! I'm not sure if tabby is pregnant or not but he's still trying! Little tabby runs away from you but when the food is put down she goes to it. He's just a lovely boy.

      This has been a wonderful break for us both and we return to the UK with thoughts of returning.

      Have a lovely holiday whomever reads this. Skopelos is a wonderful island.

      Once again thank you Dimitris and Meni

      I am looking forward to my own bed tomorrow

      Present, cake and grapes!

      Dear Dimitris and Meni,

      Thank you for a relaxing stay in your lovely villa. The present, cake and grapes were a wonderful surprise, thank you very much.

      The cat was friendly and entertaining.

    • Mr Throp, September 2016

      So good, we booked for next year!

      Dear Dimitris and Meni,

      Thank you once again for another magical 2 weeks in your wonderful villa. The chocolate cake and gifts were lovely.

      We feel so relaxed here that we have booked for next year!

      An added bonus is your lovely black and white cat who shared our holiday and is part of the family. Please look after him - he's always hungry.

    • Mrs Bicknell, September 2016

      A wonderful time on Skopelos

      Dear Demitirs and Meni

      Many, many thanks for another wonderful time on Skopelos. As always villa a wonderful restful place to re-charge batteries. Cakes wonderful as well and as for the tomatoes outside the front door ...!

    • Mr Taylor, August 2016

      A very 'homey' villa

      Dear Demitris and Meni

      Thank you for the wonderful week in your home. Most villas are a bit sterile - like a hotel but yours feels very homey. We enjoyed the sweet cat visiting us on the patio. We have left some cat food in the drawers by the BBQ, and what a fab BBQ!

      It was lovely to meet you. We enjoyed the cake and your gorgeous tomatoes...thank you so much. Your present was just too kind. We hope to return again! All the best.

      Another Wonderful Stay

      Thank you for another wonderful stay at your home. It is with heavy hearts we leave Villa Augusta, which has felt like home for the past three weeks. Total relaxation on our favourite Greek Island :-)

      Thank you also for the lovely homemade cookies, they were a treat with our morning tea. Hope to see you again in 2017. Love and best wishes.

    • Mr Adgie, June 2016

      Lots of Lovely Beaches!

      Thank you for sharing your lovely home. We have had a very relaxing stay, in lovely Augusta. We've explored all over the very beautiful island, lots of lovely beaches! Thoroughly recommend Kayaking around the smaller islands near 'thos' and snorkelling around the cave and tunnel.

      Thank you for the cake, it's been delicious! To anyone reading I recommend a few restaurants off the main front, and a bar called "the Hidden Door", with some amazing cocktails, a bit of a walk up into the old town of Skopelos, but well worth it.

    • Mr Scutt, June 2016

      Everything for a Perfect Holiday

      Thank you for our week spent at your lovely villa. It has everything for a perfect holiday. Beautiful scenery and peaceful surroundings.

      We've also enjoyed company of little black and white cat (we've named him Augusta!!)

      Thank you so much for the gifts. They will remind us of our time spent here.

      We hope to return soon, best wishes

      A Wonderful Week in your Beautiful Villa

      We have come to the end of a wonderful week in your beautiful villa. We have enjoyed relaxing in the pool and enjoyed the blissful peace and quiet of the surroundings. We are only sorry we didn't book for two weeks!

      Thank you for the very thoughtful gifts, the chocolate cake was to die for!

      We have also enjoyed the company of the little black and white cat that lives under the outside stairs, he is very friendly and very vocal at dinner time (he likes Friskies).

      We are so sad to be leaving, but hope to be back soon.

      Your villa has everything we needed, a home from home. We have visited many Greek islands, but particularly enjoyed Skopelos and your home for the tranquillity and beauty it has in abundance.

      A Magical Three Weeks

      Having just spent a magical three weeks here on Skopelos, we wanted to thank you so much for your hospitality here at Villa Augusta. The chocolate cake and homemade sweets were very much appreciated and extremely tasty!

      Thank you for sharing your home with us, Villa Augusta is in an idyllic location with fantastic views and on one of the most picturesque Greek Islands.

      Thank you again - we will be back

    • Mr Bywater, June 2015

      Lovely Mountain View

      Fantastic villa, 3rd time on island and this has to be best we have stayed in, lack of sea view more than made up for by location, privacy, facilities and lovely mountain view.

      Thanks to Dimitri and Meri for their hospitality and lovely presents, we shall think of you back home when we drink our coffee! The homemade almond paste is lovely.

      Lovely villa, everything we needed was there. The owner was very helpful. This is a villa that is hard to beat. The views are fantastic.

    • Mrs Collins, July 2014

      We had a wonderful time. Villa is in a beautiful setting, very clean, well equipped and such super views. Skopelos is a charming island, a week was not long enough and we hope to return.

    • Mr Sirs, July 2014

      Thank you for sharing your lovely villa. Beautiful location , both quiet and restful, exactly what we needed.

    • Miss Brace, June 2014

      The villa is situated in a beautiful and peaceful location and we enjoyed every moment we spent there. Augusta is well equipped with everything you could possibly need and was spotlessly clean . We loved it and would like to return again.

    • Mr Davies, May 2014

      We have had a truly wonderful 2 weeks. Villa was wonderful. What a beautiful, peaceful setting on a fantastic island. Hope to be back one day.

    • Mr Giles, September 2013

      Quite simply, it was up to the usual James Villas standard. One very small comment might be that the lower toilet / shower area, runs straight in to the KItchen, which perhaps might not be the best option, in terms of sensible design.

      The photos do not do the villa justice. The only reason I would not go back is that once you have seen Skopelos you have done it!

    • Mr Crittenden, August 2012

      The villa was excellent

    • Mr Boucher, July 2012

      Absolutely superb in all respects. Lovely quiet location with mountain views, yet only 10 minutes drive from pretty Skopelos town. The pool is excellent in all respects, very well maintained and very private. The villa was cleaned mid-week and towels/bed linen changed. Everything was provided right down to a medicine cupboard adequately stocked with emergency medication for cuts, bites etc. The owner even left us a small gift!

      Very peaceful location. Lovely villa. The owners were very friendly and left some cherries by the door one day for us. When they cleaned the villa half way through the week they left us a gift. Villa very well equipped including toilet roll, w u liquid, handwash etc.

    • Mr Bond, September 2011

      Absolutely brilliant, Thanks

    • Ms Cope, August 2011

      The owner of the villa was very helpful and keen to please. The villa is only a year old so the furnishings and appliances were all in excellent condition and the villa had more home comforts than the Internet mentioned. Although the decor is white some of the ornaments were not to my taste and probably not necessary. The villa is excellent is you are looking for peace and quiet and very private. Although I have said I was satisfied with the transfers, I think your advisors and literature could explain more fully the possible lengths of time involved waiting for a ferry transfer rather than saying it takes two hours from the airport to your villa, this is only true if a ferry connects with your flight which did not happen either arriving or leaving the island. On the way back the journey from the villa to the airport including waiting time was over five hours. Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our holiday and villa.

Villa was lovely, views fantastic, extremely peaceful location, the owners were very pleasant. The swimming pool lets it down, it was freezing, the sea was considerably warmer, and the nearby tree continually dropped leaves into the pool.

Augusta has a secluded and peaceful location. The countryside and mountain views are fabulous and the villa is just a short drive to Skopelos town. Maid service was excellent as was the quality of the sheet and towels. We would highly recommend this villa.

Villa Augusta is in an excellent location - very peaceful and secluded but only a short distance by car to the lively Skopelos town.
The villa itself is very well equipped and the owners have created a very warm welcoming atmosphere. The outdoor area and pool are excellent with beautiful views across the wooded valley and mountains.

Wonderful location with beautiful views, within easy reach of the main town which itself is a delight and with total peace and quiet.

We never got to meet the owners, when they came to clean, a scrumptious chocolate cake was left along with a lovely present. Such kind thoughts.

Although the main bed was too hard for me it wouldn't stop me from returning.

All in all a perfect week of much needed relaxation.

We have been visiting Skopelos for many years and asked Cherry last year for any recommendations and she suggested Augusta. Despite not having sea views this was more than made up by the view up the valley. The owner Dimitri and Meni kept the villa spotless during our stay . Demitri arranged for most of the lights around the villa to go off at night offering great views of the stars . Easy access and a short drive from the town.

The villa had everything that you could require, we dined out most of the time but would certainly cater for anyone who wanted to self cater.

You do need to like cats and bats , we counted 36 bats coming out of their roost one night.

Skopelos is not a place to go if you want nightlife it is generally low key with locals providing music in the tavernas in the evenings. There are a couple of clubs but we were well clear before they opened.

Lovely villa, access is a bit of a challenge from Skopelos up the little roads but worth it for the privacy and the views. Amazing chill out place.
