About the Owner

I was born & grew up in Tynemouth ; then went to Manchester and studied art.

In 1970, I first visited Skiathos where I met my late husband Christos. In our early years together we lived in a hut on the famous Koukounaries Beach; with no fresh water or electricity; everyday life was hard work but stunningly beautiful and of course, it was lots of fun. For 25 years we operated a water sports business from here; in the meanwhile we built our dream home and holiday accommodations on the hilltop above the beach. Here, at Karavotsakisma, with a magnificent view over the sea to Pelion is where I live with my son, William. My daughter Elena holidays here.

In recent years I’ve returned to painting. Limited Edition Prints and greetings cards of my Skiathos work are available in select local shops.

Jewel of Skiathos

  • 5 of 5

I almost don't want to write this review because Gail's beautiful hillside with the most gorgeous places to stay on Skiathos are clearly a well kept secret amongst her loyal guests who all seem to become friends and come back year after year. We found it by chance and stayed for the first time at Lephteris house and it was the perfect holiday.

The owner Gail and her son William live in a house above and the family created, landscaped and built the most magical places, all hidden from each other, in amongst citrus trees, olive groves, and all with the most exquisite view of the peninsular. The pool is in a walled garden which looks over the sea, Lephteris house itself has it's own lovely garden right next door with a beautiful terrace and a secret door to the pool. We had the place to ourselves as we went off season but it's easy to imagine the fun guests have in the summer too when Gail hosts bbq's around the pool. .

The attention to detail everywhere is perfect as you would expect from an artist, the beds comfortable, everything was lovely and the location is the best on the island being near to the most beautiful beaches. You need a car but the island is so beautiful you would want to explore it anyway. Being half Greek myself I have travelled extensively in Greece and this is somewhere I would love to be able to come back to again and again. Thank you Gail and William, hope to see you next year, Rachael, Christian, Isobel, Lila and Amelie xxx
