It is set alone on the top of a hill, with stunning views that take in the harbour of Loutraki, the hillside town of Glossa, and the neighbouring island of Skiathos. We spent many hours enjoying the view from the veranda with it's hammock and comfy chairs. Because you are not overlooked by anyone, you can fully relax and feel at home here straight away, enjoying the immaculate pool and gardens at the villa. Shane has built the house so thoughtfully, with plenty of outside space, whether you want sun or shade, all day long. To top off the spectacular views, the villa also enjoys the most incredible sunsets. Inside the house was spotless for our arrival, cool and comfortable during our stay. So long as you have your own vehicle (preferably a jeep as the track up to the house is pretty steep!) you don't feel at all isolated as you can reach the nearby town of Glossa within 5 minutes. The shopkeepers at the local supermarket are incredibly friendly, and all necessities can be found here. Glossa is a really lovely spot to be based near with some nice restaurants, bakery and classic Greek streets to wander. Agnanti was our favourite restaurant but we also liked the cafe in the little square by the church. The whole island is easily explored - no where takes any longer than 45 minutes to an hour to drive to. We visited some fantastic beaches (Perivoli was top in our books), seaside tavernas, churches and enjoyed a couple of trips to Skopelos town. For one trip we took the 'scenic' route through the island's interior and over Mount Delphi. Shane was a fantastic host, great communication before our stay and incredibly helpful while we were there, though not at all intrusive. We were travelling with our one year old daughter, and Shane provided all amenities we needed, including setting up additional safety gates for us around the villa in advance of our stay - much appreciated. Magic Cars who we hired our Suzuki Jimni from were also excellent. All in all we can't fault this holiday - it was perfect for what we wanted and the villa was of an exceptional quality.

He helped with the timings of the transfer from Skiathos (which is always a worry). Antony also organised a reduced rate for our hire car. All in all it was a very chilled enjoyable stay .

Everything is perfect, stylish and so spacious...the grounds are stunning, as it the infinity pool. So this year, to celebrate the newly weds first anniversary, my friend and i joined them in the second week of their holiday, and stayed at the villa. What is great is that there was enough space for us all to enjoy our own time...BBQs, pool parties, and quiet relaxing times. The location is great, and the lovely owners and support staff are so welcoming and cannot do enough...one week was not enough...so guess what...we've booked to go back for 2 weeks next year!!!
