Villa
Villa Elia is a beautiful country style pool villa situated in an olive grove overlooking the picturesque whitewashed town of Skoplelos and out to the sea beyond. The villa is fully equipped and beautifully decorated in warm colours with local art and ceramics throughout and special attention has been given to comfortable furnishings and bedding. Although Villa Elia has featured in an interiors magazine, it is very much a family villa and it's style is rustic and relaxed. Being a second home rather than a typical 'holiday let' the kitchen has all mod cons including an extensive collection of kitchen equipment and Greek cookery books. There are plenty of pool toys, board games and a great DVD library for guests to enjoy. There is also an I-pod dock, wifi and music system in the house.

The villa is fully equipped and beautifully decorated in warm colours with local art and ceramics throughout and special attention has been given to comfortable furnishings and bedding. Although Villa Elia has featured in an interiors magazine, it is very much a family villa and it's style is rustic and relaxed. Being a second home rather than a typical 'holiday let' the kitchen has all mod cons including an extensive collection of kitchen equipment and Greek cookery books. There are plenty of pool toys, board games and a great DVD library for guests to enjoy. There is also an I-pod dock, wifi and music system in the house. The linens and towels are top quality throughout. The house and gardens are full of shady spots and covered terraces to sit, relax and enjoy the stunning views. There is a Weber BBQ out by the pool terrace allowing for wonderful meals on the terrace looking down on the twinkly lights of Skopelos town at night. This luxury villa is built on three levels with one self contained, ensuite bedroom perfect for guests, a nanny or grandparents. The living area and each bedroom all have their own private terraces, however the master bedroom has a special deck overlooking the treetops and out to sea with what is regarded as one of the best views on the island. The sitting room is open plan with large glass doors that open up fully to access pretty terraces overlooking the olive grove on one side and the sea on the other to allow indoor outdoor living. The villa is a 5 minute drive or 25 minute walk into Skopelos town with it's shops and restaurants and is therefore perfect for families with teenagers as they can have their independence. The nearest beaches are a 5 minute drive in the other direction. Although close to all amenities, the villa is an oasis of calm and quiet even in the busiest times of the season and being up on a hill it is almost always cooled by island breezes although there is air conditioning in every room for extra comfort.. One of the most pleasant aspects of Villa Elia is the ability to sit out on the seaside terrace enjoying a glass of wine and watching the boats come and go in the harbour below. Private boat rentals, kyaking trips, cycle hire and a private chef can all be arranged if required and a list of our favourite things to do and places to eat on the island are in the villa waiting for you. Please note that for larger parties Villa Elia can be rented together with Elia cottage which is completely private but in the same olive grove. Together they can sleep 14 people.

About the neighbourhood
The villa is located half way between the town and the nearest beach with good access to both. It is set on an olive grove with some of the oldest trees on the island. We make our own olive oil in the winter when we harvest the trees. There are lovely country walks on the old donkey paths that criss cross the island and it is possible to walk straight from the villa up to one of the old monastries located in the hills above. Skopelos town has many lovely shops and restaurants including a wonderful bakery for your morning bread and is car free in the evenings for a stroll along the front and a drink in one of the bars. The tiny fishing villiage of Agnondas is also a 15 minute drive away and has three of the best fish restaurants on the island and is a favourite lunchspot where you can ea...
