“Like a Little Jewel Box ... True Gem, I Loved It!”
Reviewed September 1, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

These owners (a semi-retired British couple) really have it right. They have thought of everything here and offer guests so many niceties one feels that one is staying with friends. This cottage is completely beautiful, with views that are nothing short of outstanding, and an interior that is just to die for. Decor is just adorable, very cozy, with vaulted ceilings, a really beautiful home. Bathroom includes a tub for soaking and kitchen is very well equipped (better than my own). Joanne met me at the port and escorted me to the cottage. Her welcome was warm and very friendly (she and her husband reside next door, so are there should you need anything). The cottage is extremely quiet, situated at the edge of town, and there are at least four cars to keep you company should you want someone to talk to (they are beggars, so be prepared, I managed to empty my pantry). I really loved my stay at this place and would gladly return again, hopefully for a much longer stay, as this one I managed to just squeeze in while principally visiting Skiathos. A+++ is all I can say. I wish all all holiday lettings were this wonderful. Thank you very much.

Liked best: Gorgeous property, great owners
Liked least: One cannot drive to one's door here (it is a hike through town) but that is true all over Glossa. These are pedestrian streets where one has to walk, but that can be hard with shopping.

“Perfect little cottage with amazing views in a traditional Greek village”
Reviewed June 12, 2015 for a stay in November 2014

I stayed at Clifftop for a few months over the winter. Glossa is such a charming little village and the sea views all around are amazing, and Clifftop has one from almost every window! Doing the washing up, waking up in the morning, from the lounge ... the little cottage has a cosy feel and is all the space you need for a couple. Jo and Roger were great, really helpful and relaxed. I loved Jo's little walking maps with pictures, explore the area by foot if it's not too hot. They had also sorted a WiFi extension so there's good internet connection now. We loved having the wood burner on in the evening and hearing the wind howling around, though I'm sure most people will see this place in the summer, in the winter it has its own magic.

The people of Glossa are very friendly and warm. A few good tavernas were open even off season which shows you this is a real working village, not just a tourist trap.

Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts about Clifftop Cottage; we appreciate it. I wish more people could see it in the winter because the air is so much clearer than in the summer, you are one of the few guests who has had the privilege of seeing all the way to Mount Olympus!
I hope we may welcome you to Glossa once again in the future.
Best wishes,Jo

“Breathtaking views and a wonderful Greek experience.”
Reviewed September 24, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Clifftop cottage surpassed all our expectations, the accommodation was excellent and we spent many lazy days on the spacious balconies enjoying the fantastic views to Skiathos and beyond. We hired a car and explored all the beautiful beaches on the Island and Glossa itself was a real gem. The owners Jo and Roger could not have been more helpful and gave lots of help and advice throughout our stay.
