About the property

Villa Kentavros is ideal for the people looking for a romantic and peaceful get-a-way, whilst being close to the amenities of Skopelos Town, only 10 minutes away by car.

It is the perfect spot for walkers, with easy access to many trails, as well as for painters who will appreciate the wonderful scenery from Pefkias hillside.

Surroundings:

Villa Kentavros is one of three fully private villas set in their own grounds in the peaceful area of Pefkias, on the hillside above Skopelos Town. Kentavros has its own driveway and sits above Villa Arktos and next to villa Pegasus. It is surrounded by pine forests while it oversees the Skopelos harbor and the Aegean. The villa is completely private and not overlooked by the other two villas. Villa Kentavros is situated in the area of Pefkias, on the hillside above Skopelos Town (about 10 minutes by car) and enjoys fantastic views down the lush wooded valley to Skopelos harbor and the sea beyond.

Interior:

Entry into this simple but beautiful villa, is to the open plan living / dining room, with comfortable furnishings and French windows, leading out to the front terrace which looks down the wooded valley to Skopelos Town and the sea beyond. Off to one side of the living room is a well equipped kitchen, complete with dishwasher and a separate wc. French windows from here also lead to the front terrace with with a small dining table for alfresco meals. A doorway from the kitchen leads to a specious double bedroom and en suite wc/shower room with windows from which to admire the stunning views. This unique and enchanting house is entered into the sitting room which is open plan with the kitchen and a small w/c. This one-level house is decorated in rich colored walls, terra cotta floors and dark wood-beamed ceilings. The room is furnished with a comfortable sofa (which converts to a bed for extra sleeping for 2 persons) and two couches and tables with views to the harbor from the spacious windows.

The couches with soft big pillows add to the warm and comforting atmosphere. From this room there is a French door leading to a roomy terrace with the same lovely views and has access to the swimming pool. The spacious open-plan kitchen is located off the living room which is equipped with full size cooker/oven and all modern conveniences. There is a breakfast table, but most meals will probably be taken on the terrace which is furnished with an ample dining table and comfortable chairs.

A small w/c is located between the living room and the kitchen.

Exterior:

The exterior walls have being painted in bright colors, a technique taken from ancient times and which complement

the surroundings. There is a BBQ and outside dining table with the private swimming pool and spacious pool terrace to one side of the house and close to the shady pergola.

Peaceful bliss

  • 5 of 5

If complete relaxation in a peaceful hillside location on a beautiful Greek island is your idea of a holiday then this is for you ... the villa has a rustic charm about it, but has everything you will need for your stay.

Dimitris was great , checking on us by phone. We were met from the ferry by Tomas who helped us with car hire , and organised a guide to our villa.

The villa location is perfect! We could easily drive into skopelos town, 10 minutes to the beach in opposite direction, just up the road to a lovely taverna (love Mrs Fotini) and half an hour to Glossa.

My only complaint...we only booked one week !!!

Slice of paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We chose to spend our honeymoon at Villa Kentavros and it was the best decision we made (other than getting married!)! :-) it was so beautiful and romantic! We loved that it was quiet and peaceful. All you could hear were the goats on the hills and the insect songs. We enjoyed the pool every day, and backgammon on the beautiful terrace with a view. Dimitris was extremely helpful and welcoming. He helped us rent a car, rent a boat and enjoy the island to its fullest. We especially recommend Taverna Fotini, which is a 5 minute walk down the road. Mrs. Fotini is a great cook and a very sweet lady! We will really miss this special place and hope to be back soon! Thank you for everything, Dimitris!

very good

  • 4 of 5

We had a great holiday in Skopelos and a lovely stay at Pegasus cottage. We were particularly impressed with the level of comunication with Dimitris and his team on the island and nothing seemed to be to much trouble. Our cottage was very clean and well looked after and the cleaning service excellent. There were great beaches (loved limnonari) and tavernas very nearby for those lazy days with just a book. Good restuarants (Rodi and Perivoli were our favourites-must book) all in all after the hustle and bustle of the UK this was a great holiday break. Issue with the wasps but am assured it was an excepional year for the blighters. Would I go back, one year definatly. Mike & Alison

Beautiful villa and the perfect Greek holiday

  • 5 of 5

We spent an amazing week at the villa. It could not have been more perfect. The location is amazing, the island is beautiful and Dimitris was really helpful throughout the whole process. The only bad thing was having to come home!

Skopelos –Villa Kentavros – is heaven on earth.

  • 5 of 5

Skopelos – and particularly Villa Kentavros – is heaven on earth.

When we planned to stay here for a 2-week holiday we were a little concerned if it might be a bit boring, for this island is really small and we used to travel a lot. But the opposite was the case. At the end we agreed that we should have had another week in order to visit our favourite places for a second time. The smell of the pines and herbes, which we scented already on boat at our night trip to Skopelos. The extraordinary beauty of the nature, the bays, the town, the monasteries. The marvelous views, the peace and privacy, which we found at Villa Kentavros made us most grateful that a place like this does still exist. Every day we were staying at “our” Villa, enjoying the Pool, relaxing, reading, simply “being”. And we also spent some time discovering the island with a rented scooter. Dimitris made all this possible for us, organizing every detail for us reliably, giving us all information we need. Thank you so much, Dimitris.

If you want to extend the dream at home, read Michael Carrolls book “An Island in Greece – On the Shores of Skopelos”. It is really surprising how his narrations about a time 50 years ago, fit in with our experiences in 2015. The essential things hasn´t changed. B&J

A little Eden, Villa Kentavros

  • 5 of 5

The Holidays started many weeks before my wife and I went to Skopelos with our two yungest kids, 6 and 9 years. We found this fantastic looking house on the slopes of the Hills facing Skopelos City, and I took contact to Dimitris Bessilas. From first contact Mr. Bassilas was helpfull beyond imagination, which we appreciated a lot, and made us confident about renting a house from a complete stranger. He even helhed us renting a car from a local shop. On our arrival on Skopelos harbour, we were met by Bessilas assistent who had allso arranged the hired car. We were escorted to the carhire office to make the papers and then we were guidet outside the City and up the Hills. Even though the Suzuki 4x4 Jeep did not have much space for suitcases, were very satisfied with the cloth roof that could be foldet off, and the steep driveway down to villa Kentavros was no match for the 4wheel drive and low range gear. Even though one could drive a normal car to the house, we were very glad having it on our tours arround the island, many of these on dirt roads.

When we arrived at the house we were immediately embrased with its lovely colours and the breathtaking scenery of the Hills covered with the lush green pinetrees. The house with its lovely interior made a great base for our exploring Skopelos. It was perfect for 2 kids in the livingroom and 2 grownups in the bedroom. We enjoyed eating out on all the fantastic seafood restaurants, but we allso enjoyed the kitchenfacilities at several occasions with fish from the lokals. We absolutely loved our house in the Hills, the fantastic beaches with its clear waters and wide variety of wildlife, the old forests with fresh herbs sending their sents out in the dry warm air, the pool at the house for a refreshing morning dip, thanks Skopelos, thanks My friend Dimitris.
