About Stamati

Our grandmother - Persephone - was born in this house. Our family emigrated to Canada, but we have maintained our ties to our roots. My brother and I took it over in 2000 and wish to share our home with travellers who want to experience all that Glossa and the Island of Skopelos can offer in food, drink, music, culture, arts, sport, activities, scenery, relaxation and more.

Stamati purchased this house in 2000

Amazing stay in Glossa on Skopelos Island!

  • 4 of 5

The house was spacious and clean with easy access to local restaurants and stores. Wonderful views from the balcony of Glossa and the Aegean. Short walk to the island bus stop for direct transportation to island beaches throughout the day. The house is also a short taxi ride from the small church featured in the movie "Mamma Mia"! The air conditioners in the bedrooms made sleeping in the heat of summer extremely comfortable. Overall a wonderful vacation I would easily recommend.

Our relaxing and memorable two weeks on the Aegean

  • 5 of 5

This was a most memorable time that we spent staying in the hilltop village of Glossa on the Island of Skopelos. The home warm, charming and boasted an amazing view of the Aegean and the several small islets nearby. The locals were friendly, the food was healthy, fresh and delicious. There wear beautiful beaching where to swim and snorkel nearby and riding through the rustic villages on a scooter is something that we will never forget. Would love to return the next chance that we get!

Schönes Haus im Dorf Glossa

  • 5 of 5

Neu renoviert. Schön gemacht. Aber Badezimmer nur von Terrasse begehbar. Kein vernünftiger Herd. Gelegentlich Lärm durch Verkehr. Ansonsten gute Lage. Schöner Ausblick von den oberen Zimmern.
