About Ken Nashawaty
We are Barbara and Ken Nashawaty. We fell in love with Skopelos on our first visit here in 2000. After returning the following year we decided this was the place we wanted to retire to. We purchased land and built our Villa. Having lived here for several years, we wanted others to share it. Barbara is an Artist, Painter and we both worked in our own business in America making pottery for many years,before selling our business and moving here. We know you will enjoy your visit.
Why Ken Nashawaty chose Sporades
We believe that we have a special place here in Skopelos and trust you will think the same. Beautiful grounds a scenery enhance the setting.

Seclusion and Bliss
We were delighted with our stay here.. It was beyond our expectations and a pleasant surprise to find it situated looking out over the town of Skopolos. We enjoyed the walk up the hill each day and felt like we were retreating to our own haven. The owners were lovely and helpful and the apartment was beautiful with lots of the owners original art works making it feel very special.
What a unique venue and location. This property has the feel of a French Gite and is perfectly situated for a life detox. The walk up to the apartment is certainly worth the effort with the stunning views that greet you. The hosts made us feel at home and provide us with generous amount of their home grown produce. The island is spectacular and certainly merits a return journey. Cat lovers will be particularly happy as Ken and Barbara cater for an number of wild cats that live within close proximity to there house.
Great holiday and will certainly return.
Thank you for the nice review. We certainly enjoyed your company and hope to see you again.
Best view of Skopelos
We had a lovely week with Ken and Barbara in their apartment overlooking Skopelos town. The view from the terrace is absolutely stunning and the pool a huge bonus for an apartment for 2.
We hired a scooter which was fantastic for exploring the island and we ate at lots of different tavernas and restaurants in the town. Ken and Barbara are incredibly welcoming and such lovely people. They look after lots of local cats and spend a fortune each week on cat food. They are on hand to give advice when needed and are super friendly and kind but completely respect your privacy at the same time. Thank you Ken and Barbara for looking after us so beautifully!
Thank you for your review. Looking forward to seeing you again in the fall.
If you are looking for peace and tranquility with lovely views then look no further. On our arrival Ken picked us up from the port and took us to the local supermarket which was much appreciated.
On arrival at the villa we just fell in love with the place and the fantastic view over the bay and the added bonus of our own private pool.
The apartment was nice and comfortable with everything you need including WiFi, another bonus.
Ken and Barbara were on hand if you needed anything but not intrusive, leaving us to relax and enjoy our time there.
The villa was about 15 minutes walk from the main town and the walk back up the hill gave you an opportunity to burn off some calories after enjoying a meal at any one of the lovely eateries in town.
We hired a car to explore this beautiful island with lovely beaches and the apartment was the perfect base and a joy to return to with the lovely surroundings and pool.
The apartment is great value for money and would recommend booking early to visit in 2019 to enjoy this little gem. Thank you Ken and Barbara, we had a wonderful time.

What a stunning location. The views from the apartment are incredible, we spent many a morning watching the jousting between the eagles and crows which were soaring above the trees on one side of the house and the comings and goings of the boats in the harbour on the other whilst lounging in the pool or on the comfortable sunbeds. The apartment is a haven for two and although it is the ground floor of a villa occupied by the owners you feel as though you are in a private dwelling. Ken and Barbara were so kind and helpful and on our arrival Ken picked us up from the port and took us shopping for essentials. The walk into the town may seem quite arduous but it only took fifteen minutes to get from the apartment to town. We walked there and back everyday stopping at Swell Bar for a nightcap before we set off up the hill enjoying the night sky and watching out for shooting stars. Skopelos is such a magical place with many hidden gems, it was like going back to the 1980s at times. Some beaches were obviously very busy filled with sunbeds and waiter service from the beach bars but if you take some of the tracks from the main road down to the coast you can find some amazing beaches that were not as busy with such clear waters and clean sands. We took a boat trip, opting to pay more for a trip with less people on it and had the best day with LATO cruises around the island of Alonisos. We were fed and watered and taken to the most stunning beaches, we had a total of 14 people on the boat compared to others which had well over 40 people on board a small boat. Anyway, back to the apartment... We had an amazing holiday in an amazing place and would happily return in a heartbeat. Thank you Ken and Barbara for a truly relaxing and memorable stay.
Hi Helen & Simon,
Thank you for your lovely review. We really enjoyed you both. Have a great time with your new Granddaughter.
A little piece of heaven
Set high on a hill over the beautiful harbour of Skopelos Town - this hideaway is a place to rest, relax and recharge. Terrific accommodation, very private set in charming olive groves - a magical place. Ken and Barbara on on hand if you need anything but mostly all you need is quite, sunshine, swimming and Skopelos. Gorgeous Art Pieces adorn the walls ( all their own work) - to create a creative haven of calm and contentment. Very comfy sofa in the lounge was a bonus on the days it was just too hot..time to chill with a beer and relax some more. Loved the island - we chilled for a few days then hired a car for adventures all over. Lots of beautiful bays to explore and enjoy. We love swimming & snorkelling so weren't disappointed. Great walk down the hill - would recommend a taxi back up..it's just too hot..doable though if you fancy. Very quiet around, just the sound of the goat herd sometimes, the cicadas and the breeze to while a way the day - just lovely! x
Thank you Liz for the most favorable review!!!!!,Enjoyed your company...wish your stay were longer......Fondly Ken& Barbar
. There are over 300 churches, chapels & monasteries around the island many open to visitors.
Beaches are accessible either by bus or rental car. There are numerous beautiful beaches around the island. Beaches tend to be both sandy and pebbly.
There are several airports, one may use. In summer season flights from UK airports fly into neighboring Skiathos. Flights also land at Athens, Volos and Thessaloniki.
The town is only a 15 minute walk from the apartment, with all shops and tavernas.
The shops of Skopelos have a diverse sampling of local as well as traditional arts and crafts. Tavernas are of quality food with all price ranges, also there is some fine dining. Supermarkets are in town and many are quite new and stocked. We have several banks and ATM machines.
There are several boat chartering services from day cruising other islands to sailing in the Aegean Sea. There is a local folklore musuem with antiquities from a bygone area on display as well as a gift store.
