Description

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday home in Skyros

On a plot of 10 hectares in a unique location surrounded by the sea and pine forests and located perfectly calm, there are two Houses, House Pelagos and house bougainvillea.

The house has 40m2, and Bougainvillea is a large room with sleeping area, bathroom with toilet and an open kitchen (fridge and cooking facilities).

The area is planted with fruit trees and lawns and as a central point of a salt water swimming pool and a barbecue shared with house Pelagos.

The distance to the private beach is 150m and the height difference of 75m facilitate the steps going down. There is a small private beach belonging to the property and is not accessible from the outside (accessible only by boat). Since our property at the end of an unpaved road lies (700m from the asphalt), a car with 4x4 drive is essential to the prices in accordance with local car hire companies are so between 40-45 € per day and a little driving experience you should already have. The nearest supermarket is about 15 minutes. removed and Skyros town in about 25 minutes. reachable. Down in the bay of Pefkos (7min) is probably by far the best tavern of Skyros, because here you can still look into the pots and choose the fish that is caught fresh in the morning delivered by local fishermen.

Skyros Island -the

Skyros is an island whose history extends far into the mythological era where there are the first signs and instructions.

Theseus, Lykomidis, Axill and Neoptolemus are persons of mythology, which are inseparably connected with the history of the island.

The Neolithic period, the classical period, the Roman and subsequently the Ottoman domination to piratical invasions, all this has shaped the island, a living room with archaic roots, which still live in traditional customs and practices.

In the two museums on the island, Folklore and Archaeological Museum, there are many documents and monuments of this important past.

Skyros is the largest island of the Northern Sporades island complex and is characterized by a unique landscape feature. The northern part of the island is rich in dense pine forests and agricultural land in the south there is a pastoral landscape with dense shrub vegetation, in addition to goats and sheep also the unique skyrianischen Pony offers a refuge of rare beauty.

Probably the most picturesque part of the island is without doubt the Chora, the capital of the island, with its, an amphitheater and arranged houses, nestled on a 179m high cliff. On the top of the rock is the old castle, from where a unique view of the large blue Aegean Sea offers. Noteworthy is the design of the castle, as it is only accessible from one side, all the other 3 sides falling steeply towards the sea, and so provided a natural fortification against enemy attacks.

Next to the castle is the monastery of St. George, who is the patron saint of the island and from where, unique views for visitors offers.

Of all the beaches of the island offer some very distinct aesthetic beauty. On the north side there is the beach of Atsitsa, Agalipa, which is accessible only by boat, Agios Petros, Gyrismata and Pefkos. The south side is waiting for and Kolymbada with the long beach of Kalamitsa.

The crystal clear water, the clean and translucent sea bottom in connection with the beauty of the scenery entice the visitor to feel at one with the splendor of creation which spreads before him.

On a plot of 10 hectares in a unique location surrounded by the sea and pine forests and functionally furnished, there are 2 guest houses and a salt water pool for common use. The house bougainvillea with bright blue shutters offers 2 people plenty of space, but the placement of a child is possible. For this, we would provide an extra bed. It has 40m2 and is a large room with a double bed, bathroom with toilet, open kitchen (fridge and cooking facilities available) and a beautiful terrace. The land is planted with fruit trees, olive trees, vegetable gardens and lawns. As the central point is a salt water swimming pool (50m2) and a barbecue shared with house Pelagos available. The distance to the private beach is 150m and the height difference of 65m facilitate the steps going down. There is a small private beach belonging to the property and is not accessible from the outside (accessible only by boat). Since our property at the end of an unpaved road lies (1600m from the asphalt away), a car with 4x4 drive is essential. The prices in accordance with local car hire companies are so between 40-45 € per day and a little driving experience you should already have. The nearest supermarket is about 15 minutes. removed and Skyros town is about 25 minutes in. reachable by car. Down in the bay of Pefkos (7min) is the tavern of Stamatia with your traditional tasty dishes.

Magnifique séjour dans la baie de Pefkos

  • 5 of 5

Nous sommes une famille de 5 personnes et nous avons loué les 2 maisons pour loger toute la famille.

L'endroit est tout simplement magnifique, les propriétaires Viola et Kosta nous ont accueilli très chaleureusement. La vue est à couper le souffle sur la mer Egée et la baie de Pefkos. Il y a un jardin superbe et une belle terrasse pour lézarder à l'ombre ainsi qu'une piscine d'eau salée pour se rafraîchir. L'environnement tout autour est très préservé. Je recommande vivement cette location.

Little Piece of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

We were in this little piece of heaven with our little daughter and it was just perfect. The view from the terrace takes your breath away, we just wanted to stay there for ever! The house is build in the middle of nature, perfekt to relax and find yourself. Waking up in the morning and doing yoga by the pool enjoying the view of the endless ocean was priceless! The loving hosts offered us vegetables from their own garden and our daughter just loved their Zucchinis.

We did not rent a 4x4 car and had no problems, but we both, my husband and I have lots of experience driving on dirt roads. For inexperienced drivers I would recommend to rent a 4x4. Although we did not want to leave the house, we decided to explore the island and we were not disappointed (Viola and Kostas, our super cool hosts, gave us amazing insider tips). The food, the landscaping, the goats :)…. Everything just wonderful!

We are going back, no doubt about it.

Viola, Kostas and Platon: Thank you so much for sharing this amazing place with us, you are amazing!

Traumhafter Urlaub mit atemberaubender Aussicht

  • 5 of 5

Der Internetauftritt war schon ein super Vorgeschmack auf die bevorstehenden Ferien. Bei Ankunft war das Ganze aber umso überwältigender, einfach perfekt! Tolle Lage des Studios in der puren Natur mit allen Annehmlichkeiten für einen entspannten Urlaub mit Privatbucht und Swimmingpool notabene - und was für eine Aussicht auf die Bucht von Pefkos! Wir konnten nicht genug davon kriegen. Das Häuschen, sehr gepflegt und top unterhalten entspricht voll und ganz einer gemütlichen Bleibe für Individualisten wie wir. Der herzliche Empfang und die angenehme Betreuung durch die liebenswerte Gastfamilie rundeten unseren Aufenthalt auf der noch wirklich (ur)griechischen Insel Skyros einfach aufs wundervollste ab. Wir kommen gerne wieder, und empfehlen dieses herrliche Feriendomizil allen die Ruhe und Entspannung suchen. Die Miete eines Allradfahrzeuges ist aus unserer Sicht eine Empfehlung am Rande.
