We usually spent the winter months in Kenya, but returning to France and Greece for the Spring/summer in order to enjoy Thalia, at the same time we will be preparing the garden and house for the summer and make sure everything is working in order

to make our guests feel happy and comfortable.,

A place to dream about all year long.

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have returned to this amazing house 3 times now. Villa Thalia has proven to be an addiction that is hard to break. Anyone who has visited Greece knows well how many Edens exist within this small blessed country. Idyllic places to visit, stay and explore. We have done our share of it but I am here to tell you that Villa Thalia in Skopelos is by far the place where we feel that all the elements of an ideal vacation come together to nest in one place. The island, the house itself, the landscape, the vibe, the views, the soul of this land, just love it.

Very relaxing with wonderful views

  • 5 of 5

It was an older property with character, relaxing, peaceful and comfortable. The views were amazing and we were reluctant to go out in the evening as it was impossible to find a restaurant with as good a view. The only time we had an issue with the property the caretaker resolved it very quickly. We found it was a perfect place to stay for us and our teenage girls making good use of both the pool and the local beaches.

Our island dream house

  • 5 of 5

Villa Thalia is the most lovely blend of traditional greek island farmhouse and luxurious villa. One can spend weeks there surrounded by beautiful views among the olive and fig trees. The village of Glossa is 3km away where one can go out to dinner or visit the bakery/market to replenish supplies. Chances are that after a day of swimming in any of Skopelos blue green coves, one would prefer to cook dinner and stay in having dinner on the patio under the stars.

I stayed there for the second time last summer, this time with my wife and two children ages 7 and 3. We had an amazing time. Although some care is required with children that do not swim yet due to the swimming pool, we never felt particularly stressed. A mode of transportation is also required to get to the many beaches of Skopelos or one can simply walk through the pines down to the cove of Loutraki (even though that requires quite an aerobic capacity) .We did both and vote for a car or moped...

Writing this review makes me feel nostalgic of the amazing ten days we spent there last summer. I cannot wait to visit again next year.

Fantastic house

  • 5 of 5

Villa Thalia is a fantastic place and has the best view we have ever seen in our life. Unspoiled scenery overlooking the sea and Skiathos in the distance. We have spent 10 unforgettable days. The house is very charming and it is equipped with all you might need. The garden is so beautiful with the flowers and the olive and fig trees.

Thank you Anja.

Villa Thalia

A pocket of paradise

  • 5 of 5

This truly is the most romantic holiday hideaway, perched high on a hillside covered in olive and fig trees overlooking the bright blue Aegean sea this traditional Greek house offers complete peace and quiet, privacy and every comfort you could wish for. The main house has a spacious double room upstairs with en-suite bathroom and uninterrupted views out to sea with a guest house leading off the kitchen and a second guest accommodation in the garden. The well equipped kitchen and BBQ mean you can dine at home under the stars on the pretty flower-strewn terrace or by the pool but neighbouring Glossa, a 5 minute drive away also offers several different restaurants to try out. A perfect location for exploring this wonderful island and it's different beaches.

Owner's Response: very good, as it is. However, if possible please change "uninterrupted views" to " with views of Loutraki's harbour, , Skiathos and the mountains on the Mainland.

A magical Villa

  • 5 of 5

We loved this beautiful villa! From the first moment we saw it, it promised an amazing vacation. The location, the grounds, the house itself, the little guest house and even the location of the pool is just right. It is near Glossa which is our favorite town in Skopelos. There are good walking paths everywhere, great views and enough privacy without being totally isolated. I hear that since the last time we were there an additional bedroom has been added to the main house which makes it ideal for us now that we have 2 children. I must say we cannot wait to get back to Villa Thalia this summer!

From the Owner

We were visiting friends on Skopelos, and enjoyed it so much, that we decided to look around to buy a second home. We found this 100 year old shepherd cottage and had it totally renovated by a French architect. We especially liked the large forest areas, wonderful for walking, and where ever you are one has always those amazing views over the Aegean Sea.There is no airport on Skopelos and we rather like the remoteness from the crowds, even if it takes a bit longer to arrive on the island. Having a sundowner, while watching the spectacular sunsets over the Aegean Sea, Loutraki Harbour, Skiathos, and even Mt.Athos on the mainland is an unforgettable experience.

From the Owner

Villa Thalia is located in a very peaceful location, where one can enjoy tranquillity, privacy and seclusion. However, one never has to feel isolated! During the day one can observethe activities going on in Loutraki's port. In the evening the sky is lit up with lights coming from Glossa village, situated on the hillside,as well as from the Neighbouring island of Skiathos. it only takes a short time either to Glossa, Elios and Loutraki to be near the Tavernas, supermarket or the beaches of Milia (Mama Mia's),Elios, Kastani or Perivolou (our favourite!)
