You can sit by the fireplace or enjoy the nature and trekking activities. The rooms are clean, spacious, decorated with great taste and attention to every small detail. Full of amenities that make your stay easy and pleasant. At Pelion Homes you enjoy your stay from the moment you walk in by a lot of complimentary and welcome surprises as tsipouro. Our party of six (plus two dogs) arrived at 00:30 and yet Stathis, the owner, was there to show us around, to give us all the details about our stay and to provide us with a pack of spaghetti having already put the water to boil in order for us to eat something due to the late arrival! We definitely will be back for more days. Thank you for the lovely weekend!

It was very well-equipped and tastefully decorated. We especially liked the Moroccan pieces having been there ourselves last year. The restaurant recommendations were excellent: we tried Flisvos, Agnanti and Plateia (twice). Unfortunately Anatoli in Skopelos was closed for the season. As for beaches, we visited Limnonari, Perivoliou, Stafylos and Milia but our favourite was Kastani. We enjoyed the pool, table tennis and pétanque as well. It's hard to think of any improvements you could make. Christos and his wife were very helpful. Thanks again, we would definitely like to return one day.

                                                                                                      5 of 5

The villa contained everything we required - it was like a home from home. We particularly enjoyed the outdoor pool and admiring the views from the villa. The villa is in a fantastic location - Skopelos Town just a few minutes drive away. There is also a beach a 10 - 15 minute stroll away - it's just perfect. The villa was very clean and well maintained. Athena was contactable at all times and more than helpful when we spoke to her. We would definitely recommend this property to our friends or family. The only negative thing about our stay at the villa is that we had to go home!
