Villa Mimosa - is located in one of the best locations on the island. Situated 1/2 between bustling Skopelos Town and the stunning beaches of Stafilos and Velanio, the best of both worlds await (2km from each). Newly refurbished for the summer season 2017, Villa Mimosa is shiny new from furnishings, beds, kitchen appliances, the works! The beautiful open beamed ceilings and large windows take in the wonderful light and sea breezes that Greece is known for.
The main living spaces are located on the top floor allowing sweeping views of the valley of Skopelos covered in velvety olive groves. In the distance is the azure blue of the Agean, just enough to see the ferries and pleasure boats as they enter the harbor. Just opposite the villa is the mountain of Palouki where if you are lucky enough to arrive for the full moon, it's a spectacular sight rising over the mountain. From it's lofty position and set just at the edge of a thick Mediterranean pine forest, one feels removed from all of the stresses of every day life.
Villa Mimosa is a 2 level villa comprising the living, dining room, kitchen and WC the top level. This includes a full width balcony from the kitchen side to the living room side and ample seating at the outdoor table and seating area for alfresco meals. The kitchen has a convenient 'hand-out' window to serve meals easily on the balcony.
The 1st level is comprised of 3 bedrooms and a large bathroom with shower/tub. The Master bedroom has private access to the bathroom without exiting the bedroom and is furnished with the most luxuriously large king bed one can imagine! An American king sized, pillow top mattress awaits to catch up on snoozing during your much-deserved holiday! There is a huge closet/chest of drawers and a desk for those who must get some work done while - the good news are the views from the bedroom looking again out at the valley from it's elevated position. The many windows allow lots of light and cool breezes even during the heat of the summer. The master bedroom is also equipped with air-conditioning.
The 2nd bedroom is furnished with an American queen sized bed and again boasts a luxury pillow-top mattress. Plenty of closet space and chest of drawers, this room is decorated in soft grey, has plenty of light and is equipped with air conditioning.
The 3rd bedroom is furnished in a light and bright style of light blues and whites. A white iron day bed comprises the main sleeping facility with a twin trundle easily accessed for further sleeping accommodation. American comfort mattresses are of highest quality and are plenty large for adults or children. The window facing the forest is soothing and allows for plenty of light. There is a long balcony running the front length of the bedroom level of the villa.
The large bathroom on this level has a shower/bathtub, privacy wall around toilet and has a large mirror. There is a washing machine in this bathroom with laundry drying area just out the bottom back door for convenience. Again, there is a private door directly from the master bedroom to the bathroom, and a 2nd door from the hallway for the other bedrooms to access.
Villa Mimosa is set on a full acre of land and backing on a lush pine forest, privacy and quiet are virtually guaranteed. The villa is set at the highest build-able point of the property so the views are lofty and expansive! 60 olive trees belong to the property and a long driveway leads to the home far away from the road. The convenient location of the villa, just 2 km from Skopelos Town, and 2 km from two of it's most beautiful and popular beaches make this the best spot on the island in our opinion! Plus - there is a supermarket and a hotel (Alkystis) with a public Olympic sized swimming pool that includes a swim-up bar! The hotel also has a restaurant and pool bar food which are both excellent. These are both within a 5 minute walk to the villa! A nice 20 minute stroll to Skopelos Town is a slight downhill grade (the opposite returning!). Stafilos Beach can be reached in about a 30 minute walk including the steep grade that leads down to the beach from the main road. There are several restaurants along with way - Terpsis and the few tavernas at Stafilos Beach.
Please note - there is a further basement lower level to the home. The home owner lives in this apartment but has a completely separate entrance and is not visible at all to the main house. There is a pergola separating the two distinct homes - privacy is of the utmost importance to the home owner and is there if needed for assistance, otherwise is discrete and will not interfere with your holiday.
