An exceptionally lovely house
Everything about Katarina’s house is lovely. It’s welcoming, well-maintained, and tastefully furnished, situated on the hill above Stafylos with extraordinary views of the Aegean to the south and the west. You can see the cliffs of Skopelos descend to the sea and in the far distance you can see the mountains of the mainland. There are two large, tiled, outdoor patios, one on each floor with terrific views. There are also two smaller patios, one on each floor. Even when you are inside, there are so many large windows it’s like being on an outdoor patio.
The house is secluded, at the end of a long, one lane road. Katarina’s house is the closest one, and it’s quite a ways away. There are no houses above. Around the house are several olive trees, citrus trees, and rosemary bushes, with pine trees behind, as well as trees, bushes, and flowers whose names I don’t know.
Katarina is incredibly friendly and helpful, but also discreet. It was a pleasure to get to know her.
If you want to cook, the kitchen is very nice. If you don’t want to cook, there are wonderful tavernas within reach, one of which is just down the hill above Stafylos beach.
We often drove to crescent shaped Stafylos beach, where the calm, clean, warm water and the view are everything they are supposed to be, but we also walked there.
It’s a cliché, but we wished we could have stayed.
...is worth a thousand words
We have nothing but praise for this property, our host, the village and the Island. The house is bright, clean, and comfortable. The views are amazing, and the property is full of fruit and olive trees. When we wanted privacy, we stayed at the house -- alone with nature and the sea. We ventured out for meals at the seaside, and Skopelos Town was a 10 minute drive to fulfill all of our needs. We will definitely be back, and we look forward to seeing Kaiti and this property again.
Great views, a charming hostess who is there if you need her, perfect privacy and peace and quiet. What could be better than this wonderful villa?
Lovely relaxing holiday
Kaiti,thank you very much for our vacation!
I with my husband and our friend were on the Skopelos island for the sixth time !! We really love this island! This year, we chose a beautiful house in the village Stafilos in Kait's housei ! We were very tired and relaxing in such a quiet and peaceful place - this is what we need! Kaiti has always been very friendly and delicate.
Cleaning the house and replacing the laundry and towels every three days, so we have always been very clean! Despite the presence of wasps and mosquitoes on the island, they did not disturb us much, because everywhere there are protective mesh on the windows. I went on foot in the morning to the beach of Stafilos and Velanio. It was a good physical exercise and training. The beach of Stafilos is only about 800m away, the beach of Velanio is about 1000m. It is very convenient.
I'm happy to return to this house again!
Had a wonderful stay at this property. Fantastic views in a fantastic location. Private but accessible to Stafilos itself and Skopelos town just a 5 minute drive away.
Thoroughly recommend this house to enjoy a great relaxing holiday in this beautiful island.
Beautiful villa with a view
We would highly recommend a stay in this wonderful villa in Skopelos. The villa is in the hills above Stafylos with the most spectacular views - in fact the property takes full advantage of this with terraces for both bedrooms plus a lovely outside dining area. The decor is lovely - modern yet still feeling very authentic. The bedrooms are light and airy and the upstairs living area and kitchen are spacious and well equipped. The surrounding garden is full of fruit trees and affords complete privacy.
Although you could walk to the top of Stafylos, it would be quite a trek as the villa is up in the hills - for that reason we would say a car is a necessity. Also the.road leading to the villa is very rustic - there is a new section but a lot of it is unpaved.
We loved our time in this villa - the peace and quiet, the views, the total relaxation.
And the owner, Kaitie, was the perfect host. She was so kind and generous- she collected us from the ferry port and dropped us back (getting up extremely early to do so). She made us feel so welcome but was careful not to intrude on our space. We loved her - in fact I cried when I had to say goodbye to her and to the beautiful house that she is so kind to share.
Walking distances - about 10 min walk - 700m to Stafilos and Velanio beaches. All the island's beaches are easy driving distance - Agnontas is just 5min away, Limnonari another couple of minutes and then an extra 10min or so to Panormos and then on to Milia.The house is 4klms from Skopelos town.
Nearest airport is Skiathos and then a 45 min ferry ride across to Skopelos. You will be met at the port and taken to the property. To make the best of your time we strongly recommend you hire a vehicle. We can make suggestions if you wish.
Skopelos town is just 5km away and Stafilos 500m. There are supermarkets and tavernas within 1km.
