About timoleon skordilis

Greek born in Amsterdam,traveled the world to fall in love with the village location and decided to renovate old houses, and offer them in the holiday market

speaks:English/Dutch/Greek

Why timoleon skordilis chose Koskinou

Just getting out of the house and walking in the narrow streets of the village (at a part of which you can still see the remains of the fortress that protected the village during the 15th century), admiring the colorful facets of the traditional houses, meeting the villagers who seem to always have the time to welcome you for a chat or a cup of greek coffee and are eager to answer your questions about anything you might want to know helps me feel in touch with the life as I experienced during my childhood while holidaying in my father's village in mainland Greece. These are people that do not occupy themselves with new technology and social media and are not interested how branded you look and how much your car at home might cost. These are people that live to live and they are happy to share their philosophy with you.

What makes this house unique

Unfortunately I am not talented enough to be able to express in writing how I feel every single time that I enter this house.

Imagine the feelings that you may get when stepping into a house that was built when your great-great-great-great-great grandparents were still alive (but has modern kitchen and bathing facilities), a house that has a salla with an.... arch in its middle (! !) with a ceiling that is more than 5m high, has a floor that is covered with cobblestones, and its sleeping places are .... elevated. Blue color rules the interior while everything but the house's walls are made from wood.

The only thing that may interrupt your long sleeps in this quiet house will be your eagerness to open your eyes and inhale your surroundings.

Fabulous find

  • 5 of 5

House was fabulous - everything we needed and not all touristy. Local shopkeeper Frank adopted my 7 year old son - it was safe enough for him to walk the 100m alone to get milk and fresh fruit in the mornings and he was often sent home with figs, honey and Frank's wife's wonderful dolmades. Spraying the mosaic floor in the house with water keeps life cool as in the old days. If you spend most of your holiday on the beach or visiting other parts of the island, this is the place for you. Immaculately clean. We were able to park a car nearby. A real bargain.

Villa MOURIA

  • 5 of 5

We found the house to be everything it described and that the photos cannot explain how lovely the house feels. We had a wonderful family holiday here, and enjoyed the peaceful safe location within such a charming and non touristic village. Spring was ideal for us not too hot, lots of green and flowers. Timoleon the owner was kind and thoughtful giving us a guided tour of the area himself, which is over and above anything we have experienced before.

We loved that the village had 3 particularly good tavernas in the streets so we didn't have to go far for an enjoyable night out.

We have recommended this to our friends and family, and to anyone reading this. Thanks again to Timoleon for making it a great trip.
