Beautiful Villa With Private Pool And Stunning Sea Views



Updated: 17-Oct-2016
Villa Elia, Skopelos Sporades Islands, Greek Islands, Greece - Nestled In A Peaceful Olive Grove Close To Both Town And Beaches

Villa Elia is a beautiful country style pool villa situated in it's own olive grove on a hillside overlooking the picturesque whitewashed town of Skoplelos and out to the sea beyond. The villa is fully equipped and beautifully decorated in warm colours with local art and ceramics throughout and special attention has been given to comfortable furnishings and bedding. Although Villa Elia has featured in an interiors magazine, it is very much a family villa and it's style is rustic and relaxed. This is not a typical "holiday let", the kitchen is fully equipped with all mod cons including an extensive collection of kitchen equipment and Greek cookery books. There are plenty of pool toys, books, board games and a great DVD library for guests to enjoy. There is also an I-pod dock, wifi and music system with cd collection. The linens and towels are top quality throughout. The house and gardens are full of shady spots and covered terraces to sit, relax and enjoy.

About the Owner

We rented this beautiful villa with our children for many years and fell in love with both Skopelos and the house, before the previous owner finally agreed to sell it to us. Since then we have made many improvements and had many happy holidays at Villa Elia.

Guestbook comments from the owner

" Villa Elia was perfect for our family, really lovely villa, we loved it's style and the views as promised, were awesome! Thank you Sally and Bill for a great holiday. "

"We loved Villa Elia, really gorgeous open plan living. I don't think we ate a single meal indoors. Sally and Bill have thought of everything from lovely Hamam beach towels - to olive oil from their own trees. Have already booked for next year!"

"the villa was wonderfully peaceful but close enough to town to keep the teenagers happy. "
