Greece - Skopelos Island

Greece - The Verdant Island of Skopleos.

6 shares to be had IN TWO village cottages - price on application to josiehemingway@me.com

Take the steps up from the Old Harbour by the Big Tree.... stop on your way for a refreshing drink at the cafe neon before taking the only form of transport up into the village - YOUR FEET lead you up old flagstone steps past the oldest church in skopelos to the Pink Shuttered Cottages (1&2) which nestle across from one another divided by a donkey path in the maze  of streets that wind up from the port in the old historic part of Skopelos village. Standing face to face, they work as individual properties, or in unison, as one home base for your family and friends while you explore the island or simply lie on hidden beaches day after blissful day.

Skopelos hosted The Chapel Wedding for Mamma Mia and a hidden pathway through forests may take you to the little promontary where "the picnic" took place.  Tiny bays along its coastline are dotted with local restaurants in shabby chic shacks where calamari, fresh fish and hot chips are served daily. Villagers may greet you with the morning cry "Yassou, tikanis?" and if you're lucky a baskets of figs and freshly picked prunes, for which Skopelos is famous, will be proffered.

Sitting amongst the dodacanese Skopelos is unique for its verdant green forests which reach down to touch the startlingly warm turquoise waters of the Aegean.

Summer runs from end of May to mid September and special times are to be had during a Greek Easter.

These cottages are bundled together or sold separately.
