A very pretty and beautifully designed greek island cottage with its own swimming pool, set in an olive grove on a hillside overlooking Skopelos town and the sea beyond. The views are amazing - you can sit on the terrace and watch the boats come and go in the harbour below. At nights the twinkly lights from the town provide an equally gorgeous view. The cottage has a rustic country feel with wooden ceilings and whitewashed floors. It is very comfortably furnished with local art and ceramics and painted in white with soft blues and greens as accent colours. Comfy beds with Egyptian cotton linens and fluffy towels are provided and both bedrooms and sitting room are fully air conditioned. The dining room has glass walls that open up to face both views and there are several other terraces ...A very pretty and beautifully designed greek island cottage with its own swimming pool, set in an olive grove on a hillside overlooking Skopelos town and the sea beyond.

Comfy beds with Egyptian cotton linens and fluffy towels are provided and both bedrooms and sitting room are fully air conditioned. The dining room has glass walls that open up to face both views and there are several other terraces and areas to relax in the shade and make the most of the wonderful views out to sea. This lovely cottage has two bedrooms and two bathrooms and the sitting room has two island style sofa's that can be made up as two further single beds if required. There are a collection of board games, an IPOD dock, DVD's, pool toys and cookery books for guests to use and there is a Weber BBQ out on the pool terrace with outdoor seating for relaxed suppers around the pool. This cottage is perfect for peace and quiet as it is set on it's own in a quiet corner of an olive grove and has a wonderfully rural feel, however it is only a 25 minute walk or 5 minute drive into Skopelos town with its lovely restaurants and cafes.In the other direction the nearest beach is only 3 km away and so both are within easy reach. Private boat rentals, kyaking trips and cycle hire 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 cottage 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.More

Elia Cottage is wonderful. Perfect location - near enough to town and supermarkets to be really easy, but beautifully secluded with total privacy. The cottage was brilliantly equipped and incredibly comfortable - everything we needed was there. We all loved the pool. Sally was really...More

About the neighborhood
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...
How to get there
The nearest airport is locacted on Skiathos the next island along. It is approx. 1 hour away by ferry and during the summer months these are quite frequent. It is also possible to arrange a private water taxi to pick you up and bring you over to Skopelos. It is also possible to fly to Athens and connect to Skopelos via either a 45 minute flight to Skiathos or a bus and ferry straight to Skopelos port. From the port of Skopelos the cottage is a 5 minute drive.
