About SPIROS KOSMAS

About the owners: Spyros Kosmas and his wife Vasso are both artists. They have worked out the architectural designs of the villa and have done the sculptures (Spyros) and the mosaics and murals (Vasso) following the Minoan style. The villa stands on a Kosmas family property which includes a small monastery dating back to 1670 A.D. and surrounding forest with damma-damma deer.Spyros and Vasso are known all over the island for their activities about the environmental cultural and touristic improvement of the community, organizing and participating artistic events, meetings about tradition and athletic events like sailing regattas. They are educated (Spyros is an economist and Vasso studied Fine Arts), both speak fluent English, have travelled a lot around the globe and are very friendly..

Why SPIROS KOSMAS chose Thessaly

The property it belongs to my family since 19th century and the location is the most beutiful in the midle of the island that is why it was used from the old times before the turists come to the island as sumer resting area.

What makes this villa unique

The villa is of a special architectural style referring to the ancient Minoan history of Skopelos. The whole area is overlooking forested hills, the sea and the islands near by. It gets fresh air and magnificent sky lights all day and night and is the perfect place for bird and star watching. One may take short or long walks in the natural landscape. The villa itself has its own mini forest surrounding the spacious pool and sunbathing area forming a peaceful and secluded place. It has its own entrance and parking area. It is easily accessible for people with mobility problems or wheelchairs. There is also a barbeque where one may bake delicacies and enjoy them at the veranda dining area. Inside the open plan sitting-dining and kitchen room the guests enjoy a fully equipped kitchen to cook
