We had a superb stay at Villa View. Karen is a tip top owner who cares about her guests. Her communication from the initial enquiry right through to the end of our stay, was fast, efficient and extremely helpful. We loved all her excellent recommendations; she knows the island and its people well. Everyone seems to know Karen too, speaking fondly of her, which is always a good sign. Her villa is in a traditional Greek style, with comfortable beds, very well thought out and cared for with a well stocked garden of olive trees, hibiscus,bougainvillea, cyclamen roses and the perfume at night from the jasmine is heavenly. Although it appears close to the road, it is in a dip, so privacy, peace and quiet is assured. Its location is perfect - close to Glossa, a less touristy village than Skopelos, for all your daily needs, an excellent bakery, supermarket, butcher, restaurants, church square etc. The local people are very welcoming. You can walk there, but it was so hot we tended to drive. The pool and its area are large, sun most of the day with plenty of space for sunbathing or finding a shady spot if you wish. However, the pièce de résistance has to be the panoramic vista. This is not just a view, but the most magnificent 180 degree view we have been lucky enough to see. From red moons to red sunsets, it was all here. With nothing but olive groves and trees below us or to the side, the view was unspoilt by buildings. It is the best view we have ever had from a holiday villa. To see Glossa perched on the side of the hill glimming white in early morning sunshine, watching the ever changing boats and ships come to the port below and out to sea and the view of the islands, was simply awe inspiring; we could have sat their all day. But, we wanted to discover more of the island. It’s all here, beautiful turquoise clear water, clean beaches, coves, mountain walks, Roman sites, the list goes on. Karen’s villa is a must and we are so pleased we chose it. Perfectly positioned, not far from anywhere, well thought out with a kind caring owner. What more could anyone ask for. We wish Karen the continued success with Villa View that she deserves.
