Toujours prêt à nous conseiller sur une Taverne, ou le bon boucher du coin, nous les remercions pour leur accueille et leur gentillesse. Une vue superbe sur la mer, une plage en contrebas pour se baigner au lever du soleil. Le petit déjeuner au bord de la piscine, un BBQ le soir ou une Taverna dans le village typique de Glossa à 10mn... nous avons adoré. Des plages magnifiques à l'eau clair et chaude tout autour de l'ile de Skopelos dont nous avons bien profité, tout autant que la piscine de la villa. Avec le midi une petite taverne déniché dans une petite baie ou tout simplement sur le port de Loutraki à 15mn de la villa. Je recommande Flisvos à Loutraki et Agnanti à Glossa avec son roof top ou encore les tavernas sur la place de l'Eglise de Glossa. En fait, comme toujours en Grèce, le plaisir est de trouver une jolie taverne au détour d'une baie ou d'un village. Contrairement aux Cyclades, l'ile est couverte de forets d'un vert éclatant qui allié au bleu de la mer en fait une petite Corse. Magnifique. A la croisé de Skiathos et Alonissos, il est facile d'y aller passer une journée. Nous y reviendrons ...

He was so helpful and attentive weeks before we even set foot on Skopelos; we knew we had made a great decision in booking this villa for our first trip to Greece. (Dimitris even came to the rescue and found us a hire car when we couldn’t find any available on the regular car-hire websites!) Never before on our holiday travels have we experienced such genuine care from a host – he was so focused on ensuring our holiday was a success and we can't thank him enough. The villa is in a truly wonderful location - I can’t imagine there is a better one on the island, to be honest. You hardly notice the couple of nearby villas, yet whilst it felt very much on its own, standing in the tranquillity of the beautiful wooded valley with just the sounds of cicadas and goat bells drifting on the breeze, Arktos was conveniently only a short drive from Skopelos Town (for supermarket supplies or restaurants). Similarly, by car, the rest of the island’s beaches, towns and villages are within easy reach. (The short track down to the villa from the road is quite rough going, so take it slowly!) The villa itself is just as described and seen in the photos on the website. It has rustic, yet stylish, charm and oozes such a relaxing atmosphere. We had four adults and one fully grown teenager (who slept in the small gallery room) and the space and facilities provided by the villa were perfect for us all. We sometimes ate inside although more-often we dined out on the terrace. We found the air-conditioning in the two main bedrooms a real bonus! The pool was marvellous and the view, whether swimming or sitting on the terrace, was simply wonderful; we soaked it up day after day, gazing down the wooded valley to the Aegean Sea. I have no doubt this will be the pervading memory which will see us through the coming UK winter...
