We have been staying at 39 Steps for four consecutive years now .... and have already booked again for next September. Not only do we like the physical geography of the island and the people we have met there (both other travellers and those who live on the island all year round), we have also met, in Sofia, a wonderful...

I have just returned from an amazing holiday in Skopelos staying at Sofia's 39 Steps. Sofia is a fantastic host, she took me on some wonderful walks providing me with local information. The scenery was spectacular, and the top apartment where I stayed had wonderful views over the harbour. I will definitely return to the beautiful island of Skopelos and... More

My wife and I returned to 39 Steps after 3 years (something we never do as there are so many places to visit) and were not disappointed. The charm of this apartment with harbour views high up in the old town of Skopelos is undiminished despite the innovations: aircon (never used as, with astute attention to the window blinds, there...

When we started to plan our holiday we went looking for somewhere quiet and cool as the summer in Australia, our home, was very hot. We found both on Skopelos Greece and at Sofia's 39 Steps. Although it was the end of winter and the beginning of spring we had only about 2 or 3 days of rain in the... More

The 39 Steps is a wonderful place to stay. Sophia the owner is very hospitable and also a great source of local information. We stayed in the top apartment for 6 nights and loved the authenticity of the apartment and the location in the heart of the town. If you choose the 39 Steps and you won't be disappointed! Value...

I've recently returned home from another visit to magical Skopelos. I usually stay in the enchanting old town and this time greatly enjoyed another dimension by staying at, local Sophie's labour of love, the 39 Steps. For people wishing to stay with modern conveniences but enjoy the spirit and heart of an old town, I would recommend it.

After travelling the Greek Islands for almost a month, 39 Steps was a real find. Sofia, the hostess, met us at the port and drove us to the top of the port-side village where her traditional home is situated. While the drive takes you around the ring road, the house is only minutes from the port by foot. 39 Steps... More

Our trip to Skopelos was just amazing in every way! I would highly recommend this destination and 39 Steps for anyone seeking relaxation in a gorgeous setting. We stayed in the top apartment for 6 nights and wished we could have stayed a month! The apartment is well-equipped so you can do some cooking, if you choose to do so.... More

39 Steps is first and foremost a romantic garden of bougainvillea, geraniums and trailing caper-vine against the textures of rock walls and terracotta pots. The apartments which overlook this courtyard, I found to be charming and authentic with fireplaces, timber floors and rustic furniture. Sofie is a generous hostess, sharing her knowledge of Skopelos' secret beauty spots along with Greek... More

All of the reviews are right. and the accommodation at Sofia's 39 Steps will always be excellent, the terraces and courtyards always evocative, and the sunset beers always relaxing. But for however long you are there you will eventually realise that Sofia's warm welcome off the night ferry was the beginning of your journey, not the end. Travellers looking for... More
