My name is Kalliopi and I come from Glossa village in Skopelos island,I am a teacher of Greek literature and my husband is a civil engineer.We live in Volos (a city in mainland), but we spend the late spring and the summer in our favourite Skopelos where my mother and my relatives live. My husband is a very experienced engineer with lots of constructions on Sporades islands,so he constructed our villa, taking great care of building it safe,luxurious and comfortable for our guests.

KALLIOPI ORFANOU purchased this villa in 2006

Why KALLIOPI ORFANOU chose Sporades

We built the villa on a 4650 square meters family piece

of land, because we believed it was the ideal place for a house to live in.

Very near,in walking distance from our village Glossa,

and yet so private and quiet, with no one to disturb you.

We love this area because you live in unspoilt nature,

the view is amazing,changing according to weather

conditions and time of the day.

What makes this villa unique

By living in this villa you can enjoy the panoramic views of the sea and the distant islands ,the picturesque village of Glossa and the green hills around ,watching sea gulls and wild birds(hawks) fly on the blue sky .

Everything is near,the village with super markets,taverns,restaurants,bakeries,the port of Loutraki with its beach,the other beaches etc.and yet

you can enjoy privacy,tranquillity and most of all live in a luxury surrounding,relaxing and sunbathing by the pool.

Stunning views

  • 3 of 5

Villa Malena has stunning views out to sea and over to Skiathos from all the terraces and infinity pool and fabulous sunsets. It is right above the main road into Glossa which can be noisy sometimes but generally ok. The walk into Glossa is about 20-25 mins along this road, whilst ok in the day a bit tricky in the dark. We really enjoyed our holiday here relaxing by the pool and chilling by candlelight on the top balcony at night. The outside pool area is great with full sun most of the day, although the shower is not in an ideal position, down the drive away from the pool on rough terrain! The villa itself is a bit tired in some places and in need of updating/replacing appliances....

The dishwasher baskets either do not extend fully or come off the tracks, meaning the contents crash onto the floor or your feet if you're not careful. The showers in both bathrooms are hand held with no brackets on the wall which is a complete nuisance.

The washing machine didn't spin.

The sheets on the master king size bed were only double flat sheets which meant they didn't fit properly and came up and were uncomfortable.

All the kitchen contents need updating, there are a few old mugs which are either chipped or freebies e.g. Nescafé, mac D etc

The villa was cleaned once which was during our 2nd weeks hol when we were there, a few more times would be better.

This is just a few niggles as the property is advertised as luxury and it needs updating to achieve this.

However, this didn't spoil our holiday we made do with it.

We were met at the port in Loutraki by the owners representative who was very helpful and took us to the villa, after which we hired a car from Clima car hire. The car was brand new and the company easy to deal with, no hidden costs. The owner was in contact by txt whilst we were there to check everything was ok and dealt with any problems that arose. We explored the island and discovered many lovely beaches and areas of beauty, it really is Greece in all its glory as an unspoilt, very friendly island.. Glossa and Loutraki is the quieter end of the island and night life is very quiet especially in September, sometimes we were the only ones In a taverna. All the tavernas we ate in at Glossa were good and very friendly, Loutraki fish restaurants not so good.

We will definitely be back to further explore this beautiful island.

Owner's Response: Dear guest, thank you for your review. We will surely take into consideration your remarks and proceed in enhancing the villa's equipment for the future guests. We will put handles in both bath tubs and equip the kitchen with more household items. As for the dish washer, we sent a technician who was not able to fix it instantly. Moreover, I apologise for not being on the island during your stay, but I am sure my representative made took care of you. Furthermore, I need to highlight the fact that our villa is categorised in luxury class thanks to the newly contsructed building, the advantageous location, the amazing view, the infinity pool and the plethora of amenities it offers to the visitor. The vast majority of our guest can assure you for that. An example of our credibility is that we have guests who come more than 4 years in a row to our villa. Thanks again for your kind remarks and we wish you all the best.

Fabulous! Location perfect! Pool beautiful! Owner extremely helpful.

  • 5 of 5

We shared 3 weeks in this lovely villa for part of the time with another family. We wanted "away from it all" and that's exactly what we got. All spacious bedrooms with air con. Super balcony with shade and plenty of good quality sun loungers around the beautiful pool, which our children were barely out of! Great size, depth and temperature of pool. Location was fabulous- near the lovely local town of Glossa- away from the tourists. A car is advised to be able to explore the stunning island. The midweek clean with fresh linen and towels was exceptional and very well received. Kalliopi was helpful and available to welcome our friends at the port and was on hand if anything went wrong (nothing did!). A road runs at the bottom of the property, but it's not that busy and wasn't an issue. Would certainly recommend this property and location. Thank you Kalliopi and family.

Wonderful view and location

  • 5 of 5

A great week,with the owners picking us up from the port,booking a car for us and being on hand to help and advise with anything we required.Thankyou so much Kalliopi.

The villa is in a excellent location,with beautiful views and sunsets incorporating a great pool.The village of Glossa is a 15-20 minute walk,where we ate at a lovely restaurant and taverna.Two good cocktail bars with rooftop views.We loved the steep narrow. streets with their lovely traditional balconies,leading up to the main square.Which is delightful,live music and traditional food and atmosphere.The port of Loutraki has a good fish restaurant further down the hill.We hired taxis quite a lot,5euros,villa to Glossa.A car is a must,probably 2 days for exploring and then you can revisit beaches etc you liked..No where is too far.

The villa is lovely with good sized balconies,deckchairs,sunbeds etc.Spacious lounge and kitchen adequate,although the bathrooms are a bit tired and dated.All in all a lovely stay in a lovely location with helpful owners.

A rare jewel.

  • 5 of 5

Our first time in Skopelos, and we were lucky enough to have selected to stay at Villa Malena. A stones throw from the quiet little village of Glossa, with its steep stepped streets, lazy cats, and beautiful little cafes, the villa sits on the side of a hill, high above the port overlooking the Aegean sea. Sunsets are stunning, and there is ample space on the two balconies, or by the pool, to relax, watching the sun go down and the lights of the fishing boats setting their nets. The villa itself is spacious, clean, and very well maintained, but you will not want to stay indoors, when you can share such a lovely pool with the dipping Swallows.

The owner, Kalliopi, is charming, and put us in touch with the local quad bike rentals, a must if you want to explore the forest and clifftop tracks and trails, which are not suitable for cars or bikes. A holiday full of fun, and memorable experiences. Go soon!

What a fabulous villa!

  • 5 of 5

Our holiday at Villa Milena on Skopelos goes down as one of the best holidays ever. This amazing villa has a great location and terrific views looking out towards Skiathos over the water. Whether from the pool, or from the terrace it is simply breath taking. The villa is spacious, light and airy and built by Philip the owner to a very high standard. It is tastefully and comfortably decorated and has all the mod cons - dishwasher, washing machine, TV, wifi etc. All 3 bedrooms have direct access to the top terrace, again with those amazing views.

It wasn't just the villa that made our stay such a success. Philip and Kalliopi who own it, gave us the warmest of welcomes and looked after us extremely well. And the island of Skopelos is a hidden gem with friendly people and delicious food.

We certainly couldn't fault any of it and I highly recommend getting in touch with Philip and Kalliopi if you're thinking about a holiday on this beautiful island.

Even better than the pictures!! Amazing Villa.

  • 5 of 5

We rented this villa as a family of 6 in June 2015, my Mum, Dad, sister and her fiance, myself and my partner. To say we had a good time would be a huge understatement, it was a dream holiday and I wish we were still there! Kalliopi was so kind and helpful organising the booking and Phillip was always on hand for advice and helping us out while we were staying on the island, he even came to get us and our bags to and from the ferry port. The villa was clean as a whistle and the entire house, pool and views are beautiful. We rented a jeep and a scooter to get around the island and walked into Glossa a couple of evenings for dinner (an easy 20 minute walk down the road). I can't recommend this Villa enough. Thank You Phillip & Kalliopi :) x
