great little hideaway
as a family of three (baby of 4 months), we really enjoyed having our own space with a pool. The bedroom upstairs was a perfect size for us, Dimitris kindly provided us with a cot which was great.
Great location, you can get to most places on the island within 30 minutes by car.
Beautiful rustic house
We had a brilliant 10 days in Skopelos. Pegasus has the most incredible views from the upstairs bedroom, living area and kitchen and is so peaceful. We loved chilling by the pool in the morning and then driving to one of the many beaches for the late afternoon. In the evening we sat by the pool star gazing and watching the bats. Dimitris was really helpful organising our hire car and arranging for us to be met at the port. We hadn't realised that the towels and sheets would be changed twice during our stay plus the bins emptied for us which was a nice surprise.
We definitely needed a car as you can't walk out anywhere, but this wasn't a problem as we enjoy exploring when we're on hols.
Perfect house with or without kids.
Charming farmhouse style villa
We stayed at Villa Pegasus for two weeks Sept/Oct. The villa is really charming with an authentic feel and ideal for a couple that want to get away from it all, as it set up in the hills about 10/15 mins from Skopelos town. I would highly recommend a Jeep/ 4x4 if you stay at this property as there is a fairly steep/rocky access to the villa. The surroundings are wonderful and on a clear night sitting on the patio/terrace the sky is amazing. Dimitris the owner is excellent in all aspects of communication from the initial booking through to any problems/issues that might arise and are quickly resolved. The villa is well serviced with a regular change of towels and linen. It is close to one of our favourite beaches Limnonari and also close to the fantastic fish tavernas at Aganondas where you can sit and watch the wonderful sunsets with lovely fresh fish, a greek salad and a bottle of wine . We would also recommend the sunset kayaking trip with Kayaking Skopelos, which was amazing and Nikos and Dora at WindBoat Rentals who are a great couple with really great well maintained boats. Thank you Dimitris for all your assistance we had a thoroughly enjoyable time even if the weather was rather challenging for a few days of our stay.
Beautiful, quite and private villa.
We stayed at Villa Pegasus in June for our thirtieth wedding anniversary. The villa was perfect for us as a couple. It is quiet and secluded with beautiful views. The pool was perfect for cooling off. The property is not overlooked and we were not disturbed by anyone for the whole of our stay. Air con is great in the bedroom for those still hot nights and the windows have mosquito screens for breezy nights when you want to leave the windows open. The well equipped kitchen had everything we needed for our stay. We loved the orange squeezer and found the same one in the supermarket by the harbour. Bought one and took it home. We use it everyday.
Dimitris was the perfect host. He arranged a private speed boat to collect us from Skiathos and take us to Skopolos where a car was waiting to take us to our villa. The hire car chap turned up 15 minutes after we arrived to deliver our car that Dimitris had also arranged. Everything was so stress free and easy, we were delighted. Dimitris was very helpful to answer questions by phone and email. The villa is about 10mins drive from the town, which was perfect. There are several nice places to eat on the harbour and in the town along with the shops selling local goods.
We went out on two boat day trips. These are very good value, providing breakfast, lunch and drinks on the trip. We went on the big wooden boat with the blue sails and also a yacht called Lilly. The crew cooked us a BBQ and stopped off twice so we could do some snorkeling/swimming. All in all a super holiday.
Thank you very much
Mark and Sue
It is so nice to have so many couples visiting us for their honeymoon, their birthday celebration or their wedding anniversary! I’m really happy that the feeling of a home like vacation is touching our guests, even more when it is such a special occasion! We always try to organize our guests’ vacation in every aspect possible and our primary concern is to create an atmosphere of secluded relaxation for them! Dear Mark, dear Sue, thank you so much for being so gentle and generous with us and we do hope to have you back soon!
Comfortable villa,quiet location, stunning views of surrounding countryside and Skopelos town..
The villa itself is in an idyllic location and presented in the typical traditional Greek style in doors and out. It is reasonably well equipped but lacking a toaster in the kitchen, which we missed. Pillows on the bed were soft which is a bonus compared to many other places we have stayed in Greece.
The pool was adequate for a cool down dip after roasting in the sun, water surprisingly cold a bit of a shock on first dip, but did the job of a prompt cool down. The property and outdoor area generally appeared a bit tired and in need of TLC. The location of the villa means you loose the late afternoon and evening sun, this will obviously vary on time of year. We were there in September so the villa and garden/pool area was in complete shade by 16.30hrs. The only thing which ruined it for us which was no fault of the owner were the wasp. We only spent 2 days out of 14 lounging by the pool. We were plagued and swarmed by wasp which were worse in the mornings and late afternoon/evening. Couldn't enjoy sitting outside and couldn't leave doors open or they entered the villa, they seemed to swarm around front door and shaded sitting area. The owner was very helpful and got someone to put traps down but these did not make much difference. Don't know if it was just a bad time of year for wasps, we were there September, or if there is a nest nearby it seems the pool attracts them as well. We went out all the other days to escape them.
You definitely need a car to explore the Island. There are lots of quiet secluded beaches to be found other than the popular commercial beaches, but a bit of a hair raising drive to get to some of them due to the steep mountainous narrow windy roads, both tarmac and dirt tracks but worth it, beautiful quiet beaches with crystal clear water. Lots of shrines at the road sides which is a bit disconcerting, so take it as a warning to drive carefully!
Loved Skopelos town, nice nights out exploring all the restaurants which serve traditional Greek and Mediterranean cuisine, these are mostly hidden away from the harbour front up the cobbled streets. Best ones are Perivoli, To Rodi, Olivio and Alexanders. Anna's is also nice but slow service. All are reasonably priced. Good cocktail bar at harbour front only 5 euros each. Everyone very friendly and accommodating and generally all speak English.
Overall we had a fantastic time and Skopelos is a beautiful not over commercialized Island with or without wasps!
What a pity!
Our role is to do everything in our power to assist our guests so that they have a truly memorable holiday. Ever since our first contact, up to the day of their departure, we mean to be there for them any time they ask for our assistance.
I understand that due to her fineness Karen didn’t want to worry us, but this is what we are here for. The truth is that this year we had plenty of wasps, but all we had to do is put traps on a daily basis. Concerning the toaster, it would have been so simple to just buy one.
Regarding the shade, I understand that we might need to trim the trees so that we can ensure more sunshine throughout the entire terrace around the pool during September.
Thank you both for your constructive comments and hope to have you back in the future.
Beautiful villa in a perfect away from it all location but just close enough to Skopelos town
Pegasus is a beautiful villa set in the side of a steep valley overlooking Skopelos. Despite there being two other villas nearby you almost wouldnt know it and the peace and quiet is only disturbed by the steady ringing of goats bells as they wander the forest in the valley below and occasionally are herded along the road above.
Villa facilities are great although a barbecue would be a welcome addition and the pool is perfectly sized for two people although being on the north side of the valley the sun goes off the pool and terrace by about 5 o' clock.
Located midway between Skopelos and Agnondas its perfectly positioned to explore the island.
The villa was kept spotlessly clean during our atay with towel linen and pool service every 3 days.
We would certainly consider returning to Pegasus in the future
Thank you so much for your generous comments!!
I hope to hear back from you in the future and the barbecue will certainly be waiting for you.
Best of wishes!
Translate the name and you'll start to understand a little more about Pefkias. It's Greek for Pine Tree so it'll come as no surprise that sun-dappled pine forests cloak the place, their sweet scent filling the air. Pefkias is a rural pocket of Skopelos with an enviable setting. It's only a ten minute drive down to Skopelos Town and ten minutes in the other direction to the pretty fishing village of Agnontas. Plus it's a few minutes' drive from the beaches that gild the southwest coast, among them one of the island's most seductive sandy stretches, Limnonari.
Here and there you'll see old stone villas and hushed holiday homes peeking out among pine trees, olive groves and fruit trees. Naturally, the views here are superb. Look down to the wooded valleys and out to a sea that sparkles alluringly in the distance. If you're a fan of walking and hiking, you'll be in your element here. Pick a path down to the beaches of Limnonari and Agnondas. It'll take about an hour on foot but the sight that greets you is prize enough, with velvety sand giving way to warm crystal waters.
And even if you don't want to wander that far, whichever direction you head in you'll come across bubbling springs and dinky chapels hiding in the hills. With its beautiful scenery and laid-back vibe.
