Overview

About the property

On a plot of 10 hectares in a unique location surrounded by the sea and pine forests and located perfectly calm, there are two holiday cottages, house and home Pelagos bougainvillea, which offer a magnificent view of the bay of Pefkos and the vast Aegean Sea. The house Pelagos (sea view) with the orange shutters has 60m2, can accommodate up to 3 people, with the sleeping accommodation as a double bed on the open gallery and a single bed in the spacious living room can be provided. The house Pelagos offers a large living and dining room with open fireplace, a table for up to 6 people, a bathroom with toilet, bath and washing machine and a spacious kitchen with stove, oven, fridge and freezer. 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 the guest house Bougainvillea 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.

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 in the traditional customs and practices (website hidden) 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.

A beautiful, quiet, picturesque, get away from it all place

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful place. A quiet, picturesque, get away from it all place with a stunning view of Pefkos Bay and the surrounding islands.

We occupied both villas which are well equipped, clean and comfortable, with air con.

The salt water swimming pool is a big plus on the hot summer days. Though most days there is a cooling breeze.

Sitting out in the evening is pleasant as there seemed to be very few if any mosquitoes. A highlight for us was star gazing, seeing the Milky Way very clearly and numerous shooting stars.

Skyros itself is an island that seems to have avoided the mass tourism of many Greek Islands, probably due to the fact that there are only flights via Athens and so it retains character and beauty.

Thank you to Costa and Viola for being excellent villa owners. They live discreetly in the grounds and so you have to make an effort to find them. But find them you should as they are very helpful, especially for places to eat and see. One of our favourite eating places was the souvlaki cafe in Linaria harbour. Teaming with locals, get there early in the height of the season, otherwise you won't get a table. For ice cream, the shop, where they make it, behind the supermarket, outside the Hora, is the best.

We look forward to going back.

Dream Location

  • 5 of 5

We almost did not believe the Google Earth photos of the villa when we were choosing to book. Could anything be that private? Could the view be that amazing?

The answer is yes. This is a gorgeous property, crafted of stone in the the traditional Skyros style. I almost don't want to say how amazing the location is lest I can never stay there again because it's always booked, but I owe it to the lovely owners, Costas and Viola. They could not have been more hospitable and caring about both us and the property. They were there when we needed them, and invisible when we wanted our privacy, which was most of the time.

They also vetted guests well, so the other couple staying in the rear house were as quiet as we were, and we all felt like we had the place to ourselves. If you want loud and wild, this is not your place, and Skyros is not your island.

The rocky road in takes a little courage at first, and definitely a 4WD, but we took it slow and realized it was really no big deal. We went out almost every day to explore the island, get groceries etc... It was a life I could really get used to.

Thank you to Viola and Costas for building with such craft and care, and for your generous hospitality.

Karen and Daniel

Emplacement Magique et accueil superbement chaleureux

  • 5 of 5

C'est un endroit tout à faite exceptionnel qui a été construit par un architecte de goût et sa femme qui sont des hôtes sympathiques et prévenants. J'ai passé un excellent séjour et le recommande à ceux qui aime la nature et le confort!

On est dans une authentique maison Skyriote dans une baie sublime avec les facilités pour les courses à quelques kilomètres;

Sejour de rêve

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un séjour fantastique à Skyros en grande partie grâce à la jolie maison de Viola et Kostas et à leur accueil extrêmement chaleureux. La baie de Pefkos dans laquelle se situe la maison est tout simplement magnifique (la plage de Pefkos est l'une des plus agréables de l'île).

La maison a beaucoup de charme, l'intérieur correspond à une authentique maison skyriote joliment restaurée. On peut passer beaucoup de temps à l'extérieur car la terrasse est ombragée et le jardin est un rêve. La piscine d'eau de mer a ravi toute la famille pour se rafraîchir aux heures chaudes.

Ein Traum

  • 5 of 5

Es ist nicht gelogen zu sagen, dass uns bei der Ankunft hier Tränen der Rührung und Freude in die Augen stiegen: Wer diese Terasse zum ersten Mal betritt, glaubt sich in einem Film, wir fühlten uns wie im Traum.

Das Haus liegt in der malerischen Bucht von Pefkos, in seinem eigenen, mehrere Hektar großen Garten, vielleicht 50 Meter über dem Meer in mediterraner Schönheit. Herrliche Ausblicke gehen zu benachbarten Inseln, zum weiten Horizont und hinunter in die Bucht, es geht nicht besser.

Ein schöner Pool direkt am Haus lädt zum Verweilen und Baden ein, durch den Garten, in dem Zitronen wachsen, Tomaten, Rosmarin, Minze, Oleander, geht es hinab zu einer privaten Badestelle im tintenblauen Mittelmeer.

Das Haus ist wirklich schön und geschmackvoll eingerichtet, griechisch-rustikal dekoriert, es hält allen Komfort bereit, den man erwarten darf. Wir sind mit zwei Kindern hier, also zu viert im Haus, das geht sehr gut.

Das Haus liegt mit dem Auto ein paar Minuten abseits einer Landstraße, die schnell ins Leben führt, zu Tavernen, Dörfern, kleinen Supermärkten. Die Piste zum Haus ist steinig, kurvig und teils steil, aber keineswegs so abenteuerlich, wie die gastfreundlichen, netten Besitzer sagen; man schafft das schon, auch wenn man noch keine Rallyes gefahren ist.

Viola und Kostas sind perfekte Gastgeber, diskret, aber immer hilfsbereit. Man fühlt sich nach kürzester Zeit nicht mehr als Gast, sondern als Freund.

Die üblichen Fragen beantworten wir alle mit Ja: Ja, wir werden dieses Haus Freunden empfehlen, ja, wir werden hoffentlich wiederkommen. Wer Griechenland in einem exklusiven, außergewöhnlichen Ferienhaus genießen will, sollte ohne Zögern buchen.
