We had a car, which I'd recommend, but you can walk to the local villages (steep slopes though) and there is a bus stop at the end of the driveway. Stunning views over the Aegean to Skiathos, with amazing sunsets each night from the balconies. Bedrooms had good air conditioning, great showers, comfortable beds with plenty of storage. The housekeeping service was very efficientand discrete, but also very friendly and helpful in times of need. Lovely pool which was regularly cleaned, plenty of chairs and sun loungers, and lots of areas of shade for the hotter parts of the day. Very well equipped with everything we needed, nice to have quality appliances etc.. We loved being at the top of the island (away from the main Skoplelos town), it felt "Greek" rather than touristy. It was a grea location to to be able to get to lots of different beaches etc..Everyone very friendly, with lovely restaurants, a bakery and supermarket a few minutes away in the car. Choice of restaurants more limited than had we been in Skopelos Town, but not a problem at all.

One bathroom but 2 toilets. The pool and views were excellent , pool and beach towels were provided also some beach gear and cool bags so very well provided for. No cleaner in the week or change of towels but not a problem for one week. In all we had a wonderful holiday in a very pretty villa, Karen was there to meet us and would have helped out if we needed anything but left us to ourselves all week, which as a family we like. You really need a car but can catch a bus all around the island , roads are a little tight so walking with small children may be a bit tricky and quite a distance to any where. There are lots of places to eat but not in walking distance all open late so eating around 10. 0 clock was not a problem . Great holiday , great little villa ..
