1208057 - Luxurious villa 'Aloupi'

Wow! I am a snob and hard to please. I have high expectations and rarely have them met, but I think "Wow" is a suitable adjective for this place. It's always difficult to find a villa with a private pool if you're only 1 family, even harder to find something really special. What Kostas has done here, however, is really special. The villa is lovely. Tastefully decorated with an eclectic blend of old and new. The outside spaces are truly fabulous. Patios and seating areas, lead down through sculptured lawns and beds to the pool. There are so many little nooks and crannies, seating and eating spots, we struggled to make use of them all during the week. The town is within walking distance but we mostly drove as we had our two young children with us and also I'm just plain lazy! The town is busy and interesting but honestly, I couldn't wait to get back to the villa, it was so good!

A Truly Wonderful Villa

  • 5 of 5

I am slightly compromised writing this review as it feels like we have found something really really special that we want to keep to ourselves, our own little corner of paradise ! It was our first visit to Skopelos and it was so good we came back again in August and are already planning a return next year. It is a truly beautiful island easily accessable from Skiathos by ferry. We were a party of four and were met on arrival by the owner Kostas who along with his wife Voula couldnt have been more helpful throughout our stay, even helping me sort an issue with a hire car !!!

You are always a little anxious when you arrive at your holiday "home" as you so want the pictures and description to exceed your expectations. We had no need to worry. I can honestly say that the villa, pool and surroundings were exceptional. It is truly a little corner of paradise sitting above the town with stunning views of the port and the sea. The furnishings and facilities were of a very high standard. I can honestly say there was nothing we could fault

Skopelos is an amazing island and has many great restaurants, too many to list and review . I have no hesitation in recommending the villa and the lovely owners Kostas & Voula

Outstanding, can't speak highly enough of this stunning villa!

  • 5 of 5

First time visitors to Skopelos and first time we have stayed in a villa so what a great start. If future villas come anywhere near this one then we will be extremely happy.

Firstly, the owner Kostas could not have been more welcoming and attentive. From picking us up and dropping us back off at the port, helping with our cases, to taking us to the supermarket en route to the Villa initially to collect supplies as we did not have a car, to providing invaluable advice throughout re restaurants, beaches etc.

Kostas had also supplied some basic food and drink provisions which was a very nice touch.

The villa itself is stunning, both in its situation, magnificent views of the harbour from up on the hillside, the scale of the place, lots of room inside and out. Extremely peaceful and private, not overlooked at all, just you and the crickets. The pool and pool area was lovely and a good size.

Inside the villa is extremely well thought out and clearly the attention to detail is evident everywhere, cool white simple decor with lots of individual pieces to add colour and interest everywhere. Outside, the landscaping is equally stunning, of the highest standard with a magnificent barbeque area.

The Inside and out of the villa and pool area was maintained spotlessly throughout by Galina's daily morning visit. Would recommend this villa to everyone.

Just one note, that a car or suitable mode of a transport would make the trips back & to into the town a little easier. The magnificent views you enjoy from the villa mean that it is up on the hillside. We walked up & down which is no more than 10-15 mins but is quite a challenge.To be fair it seemed to get easier and quicker as the week went on but is a consideration.

Perfect holiday and faultless experience

  • 5 of 5

The warm welcome we received from Kostas began the moment we booked our holiday, several months prior to our two-week stay in June 2015.

By the time we arrived on Skopelos we felt almost like old friends, met by Kostas himself at the quayside and chauffeured up the steep, winding road to the villa – a helping hand we appreciated enormously. Our first sight of the house exceeded our already high expectations; the impressive photos on the website don’t do full justice to how smart, clean and spacious it is – and with those breathtaking views of the bay from the terrace. The villa is secluded, quiet, well-equipped and very comfortable, a perfect spot to get away from it all.

Skopelos is beautiful, its inhabitants are friendly and everything is good value – perhaps unsurprising for a visitor from the UK benefitting from the favourable £/€ rate and pre third-bailout economy in the early summer of 2015. It's not a big island, so you can cover most places with a car in a few days. That leaves plenty of time to lounge around the pool, explore the town, seek out the best restaurants.

As well as all these clear positives, perhaps our overwhelming memory is of the friendliness of Kostas and his wife, Vroula. Their good taste, attention to detail and care of their guests really are second to none. We found nothing to be too much trouble for them, whether assisting with occasional food shopping, helping out with a place to hire a car (go to Magic Cars for great customer service and a complimentary jar of homemade preserve – take note Hertz), advising on where to eat out, or being handed the secret of the shortcut walk into town.

We certainly plan to return.

Super stay in Villa Aloupi on Skopelos

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful Villa, all the facilities were excellent and well thought out. Everything in the Villa is of a very high quality and very tasteful. The villa is very spacious, very clean, light, air conditioned (which we needed during our little heat wave).

Beautiful pool area and floral garden. We used the BBQ and its seating area with super views over the harbour. Well done to Kostas the owner ! Kostas is a super host and really good to talk to about Greece and travelling around. We were collected at the Port and dropped off again when we left. The path to the town was a good walk in the heat but the pool was excellent to jump into afterwards. We travelled around this small island during our 2 weeks and found super beaches and tavernas. Our 2 weeks were simply splendid. We have enjoyed listening to Kostas CD which we bought from his shop. Many thanks again to Kostas and Voula for the fantastic holiday we had. Lisa, Max, Harry (18) Verity (18).

Absolutely Wonderful Villa!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at Kostas's beautiful Villa and really didn't want to leave! Kostas is a delightful man and so helpful. He very kindly met us at the Port in Skopelos on our arrival and drove us to his Villa and spent time showing us around and giving us lots of local information. The Villa was spotless, fully air conditioned with luxurious fixtures and fittings and a fabulous selection of goodies to welcome us. The outside area was beautiful, on two levels, with the pool situated down a few steps from the terrace. The views over Skopelos Town and the sea beyond were stunning. I really can't praise this Villa enough and anyone planning a visit to Skopelos will definitely feel the same if they decide to stay here. Hiring a car is a good idea as it is situated high above the town and up some very steep roads. However, there is a lovely walk down from the Villa via a locked gate at the edge of the property. This is just a 10-15 minute walk and delightful taking you directly to the Port and the pretty cobbled streets of the town. By the way, when you stay you must go and see Kostas sing and play his guitar with his friend on the bazouki at Anna's restaurant they are very good-a real Greek treat! Anna's restaurant is very good and set in a beautiful court yard in the heart of the town. Another excellent restaurant was the Orchard, just a short walk from the Port. This is set in beautiful gardens with excellent food, we thought the best. Skopelos is a beautiful island and as we had a car, we managed to see much of it including the Mamma Mia church and many of it's secluded beaches and towns. Kayaking on a sunset trip out of Elios, was fantastic too. We would love to return one day and so happy to have met lovely Kostas and his wife Vroula-a big, big thank you!

Beauty, peace, luxury in a homely setting

  • 5 of 5

Our family of two adults and two children (10 and 13 at the time) enjoyed a wonderful relaxing holiday in this wonderful, comfortable, spacious villa. The photos on the Owners Direct website attracted us to this property so our expectations were high, yet they were exceeded the moment we set foot on the island. Kostas is the perfect host. No effort was spared to make us feel at home. The villa is wonderfully spacious, tastefully decorated to give it a very homely feel. There has been great attention to detail as all conveniences are present and even things like a comfortable cover for the sofa means that the house is lovely, clean and maintained to a very high standard. Every 2 or 3 days the place is cleaned and linens are refreshed (even pool towels) and with airconditioning throughout the house it is always comfortable. Our favourite bit was the outdoor table where we would sit each morning enjoying the breathtaking ocean views. Also the beautifully landscaped garden and pool area with outdoor kitchen and bar were a highlight. This property could have easily been made into a 3 or 4 bedroom accommodation if the rooms would have been made smaller, but as a 2 bedroom dwelling the extra space makes it a so much more luxurious place to stay. If I were to say that the accommodation doesn't match it's description it would only be because I believe it is better! I would highly recommend this villa for anyone who would like a relaxing holiday treat. A car is essential to get to the property as it involves a steep climb uphill so not suitable for carrying heavy groceries, but for those who enjoy walking a walk into town at night for dinner is easily manageable. I cannot fault this place. Beautiful beaches and nice restaurants are a short drive away and Kostas will be more than happy to point out where to find the best food. His advice is worth following as there are also many less exciting places to eat too. There are other properties that are bigger or cheaper, but I cannot imagine they will be as nice as this one. I am looking forward to booking our next trip to Skopelos soon.
