About the property

Island holiday w/all amenities, easy to reach from Athens airport

Our lone-standing house (snow-white walls, light-blue doors, windows and closets) was built in 2010. It is located on a slight slope above the harbour city of Skala with sea view to south and east. The house has 2 balconies on the upper floor, which offer a great view of the island and sea; with clear weather you can see other islands like Ikaria and Leros. On the ground floor you will find partially covered pergolas, equipped with a large dining table and seats, cushions and chairs. The house is surrounded by a nice garden on two sides. Loungers invite you to relax and sunbathe. There is also an outdoor shower. The location is very peaceful; there are a few other (holiday) homes around.

Arrival information; through Athens-Piraeus: Direct public bus from Athens airport to the dock of the ferry to Patmos, about 75 min. ferry time. Transfer with ferry Patmos-Patmos: 8h. Modern, comfortable and clean ferries; ferry schedule; see website, booking per internet or in travel agency at the Athens airport or in Piraeus. Through Samos, Kos or Leros (local airports): With ferry or catamaran (about 2-3 hours).

Key handover: The guests are picked up from the harbour on arrival and driven to the holiday home, the same with departure.

Excursions to other islands - dolphins: With ferries and excursion boats, you can go on tours to the neighbouring islands, some with amazing, secluded beaches (Lipsos, Arki, Marathi). On the way, you can watch different dolphins.

Very good internet and mobile reception: Very good WiFi reception (internet and cell phone) in the house (for a fee). Prepaid cards can be purchased from the mobile provider in Skala.

Great stay in Patmos

Very nice and clean house, perfectly located to discover the island.

We enjoyed a lot the terraces, and the quietness of the area.

Winter Escape

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed for 10 days in early February and found Patmos and this villa on the edge of Skala a perfect retreat. Home is like something experienced in the writing of Gerald Durrel, but better 'house equipped' - it had everything you'd need for a comfortable stay. It was just 15 mins walk into the town for shopping, about one hour up to the Monastery via the old donkey track, and about two hours to the northern tip of the island. We had sunshine, wind, lovely clouds and some downpours, but our outstanding memory of Patmos will be this lovely 'Skala Blue' villa overlooking the town.

Our stay on Patmos

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful holiday in this house on Patmos! Everything was just perfect! Very nice and clean house in a very quiet area, but only a small walk away from the centre of Skala. The house had everything we needed - from a fully equipped kitchen 'till candelights for an outside evening dinner. We enjoyed the terraces, the outdoor shower and the beautiful view you have from up there.

Patmos is a great island if you are looking for a peaceful and relaxing holiday, and this house was perfect for that. We definitely want to come back!

Angolo di Paradiso

  • 5 of 5

Conoscevo già Patmos e sapevo fosse un'isola "magica", ma questa volta la vacanza ha avuto un valore aggiunto grazie alla meravigliosa casa che ci ha ospitati. L'abitazione, oltre ad essere impeccabile per pulizia e comfort, è situata in una posizione strategica sia per il panorama che per la dislocazione. L'aria che si respira all'interno della stessa è di calore e luminosità. La padrona di casa è precisa e disponibile ed i custodi Nikos e Debbie sono gentili e sempre sorridenti (anche per il pick up all'arrivo e alla partenza e nella ricerca di motorini in affitto che ad agosto sono molto difficili da trovare!!). Viaggio parecchio con amici e devo dire che questa è forse la volta in cui siamo rimasti più soddisfatti per la scelta della casa in affitto. Super soddisfatti, la consiglio vivamente!!

Ferien - Traum - Haus mit Top-Ausstattung

  • 5 of 5

Ein schmuckes, großzügiges Ferienhaus, lichtdurchflutet, mit Top-Ausstattung. Schon der Start in den Sonnentag auf der Frühstücksterrasse mit "zweifachem" Meerblick war herrlich, wie auch "unser" nach dem Strandtag "Platz" beim Glas Wein im Liegestuhl mit Blick auf den Hafen. Die Waschmaschine war natürlich eine praktische "Luxus"zugabe. Die "Draußen"dusche hat das Sommerfeeling zusätzlich gesteigert ;-)

Patmos is a small, quiet island (3000 residents) in the eastern Aegean (Dodekanes) and is located between Samos and Kos. There is no airport, thus, no mass tourism. Skala is the harbour city with a lot of good shops and taverns. Chora with the 900-year-old monastery (World Heritage Site) is on the hill and is mostly free of traffic. There are a lot of small, nice beaches, normally with a tavern nearby. You can reach a lot of places on foot, by boat or public bus (we have gone to Patmos for 30 years and haven't had to rent a car). Our house can be reached easily from Skala (10 min. from harbour). Grocery store & bakery halfway in between marina and house.
