“Fabulous setting - visually stunning”
Reviewed September 25, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We were like previous guests, absolutely impressed with amazing views( due to the pine forests surrounding the property there is virtually no development or buildings in view) , a stunning pool and perfectly manicured garden.
Foula is a genuinely friendly host who respects your space and is always willing to help with anything.
We had two babies and managed to keep them safe from the stairs by putting cushions as a barrier, otherwise the stairs and top landing would be quite dangerous for toddlers.
The kitchen is small so if you like to do a lot of cooking and there's four adults you might find it cramped. If you're eating out at tavernas and only doing minimal cooking then it's fine.
Another small thing, if you're particular about comfortable pillows and like them soft, then suggest you bring your own.

“Perfect relaxation - a hidden paradise!”
Reviewed August 8, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We looked at the pictures and decided from the reviews that this was the place for us. I have to say that Foula and George must have one of the most beautiful locations on all of Skopelos and we were not disappointed. The villa is very hi spec (cleaned daily), the pool, gardens & furniture are of exceptional quality and Foula and George are the perfect hosts - there when you need them.
We will certainly be returning as it was the most relaxing 2 weeks we have ever had as a family.
Thoroughly recommend Elies houses!!!!!

“A Skopelos paradise”
Reviewed October 24, 2012 for a stay in October 2012

I stayed 5 days at the Elies houses with my family ( wife + 2 kids) and we had the best holiday we could dream of.. For a starter, we clearly got the timing right; the October weather can be very chilly where we live (near Oslo, Norway) so getting a few days of really nice summer (~22 to 28 degrees) at this time was really nice for us. But what really made this holiday special was the house where we stayed; Elies houses. First of all the location is perfect. Just 7mins drive from Skopelos City Centre, and not far away from Skopelos' top beaches such as Milla and Kastani. (Yes, you need a car to get the house, but car hire is cheap in Skopelos and you will really need a car to get around and enjoy Skopelos anyway..) The property lies close to the main road but is secured with a gate (remote control) and has parking space inside. Behind the house there is a modern and large pool, clean and very well maintained. A part of the pool is shallow thus suitable for young kids (non-swimmers), while the rest of pool is deep and suitable for adults and older kids desiring a proper swim. Our kids (5 and 8yrs) loved the pool and could play there for hours..From the pool you will experience the most fantsatic views of the sea, with the charming Limonari beach 2km straight below. We took some really beautiful photos there at sunset. The house itself was fantastic; spacious , well equipped and tastefully furnished. The houses are quite new (2 or 3 years?) and I have never experienced such a high standard on the interiour in a holiday home. The garden is green and beautifully designed ... Last but not least, the hosts (Foula and Giorgos, who also live in a house on the same property) are extremely friendly and helpful and and they looked well after us. We got practical help when we needed it and good hints about what we could see or do on the island.
We had a fantastic stay at Skopelos, much thanks to the georgous Elies houses.... We hope to come back here some day, maybe together with family/friends who could become our neighbours in the second house.... ( NOTE: If you are travelling from Norway, check out the charter companies like apollo.no and ving.no, from May to September they sell reasonable direct flights from Oslo to Skiathos, which is just 1 hour ferry trip from Skopelos..)
