                                                                                      From the moment we contacted Dimitris to enquire about Villa Arktos, we realised we were onto something special! 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...

What Shane has created is a remarkable rustic/ modern interior and exterior villa with every amenity - you will want for nothing. Being so close to Glossa is convenient for shopping at the friendly supermarket and the bread and cakes at the local bakery are wonderful. Walking through the village you feel so welcome as the locals greet you "Kalimera" The villa which overlooks Skiathos has the most amazing sunsets just breathtaking, I can't tell you how many photographs we have taken of the stunning views. Shane and Stefanie are the most hospitable hosts, thanks to them both for looking after us, the supplies of wine, water and bread were very much appreciated for when we arrived and we certainly made the most of the vegetables from the garden throughout the week. I cannot express enough to anyone reading this review you will not be disappointed with either Skopleos (our 2nd visit to the island) or to Villa Eleanore. Just chill out relax and have a wonderful holiday. Just as we have. Mark and Julie Paul Birmingham

They will help with car hire, boat trips etc. A very friendly island with plenty of places to eat. The old town at night is quite magical too.
