Had a wonderful holiday. The house was fantastic, and exactly what we were expecting. Our host was always helpful and accessible and made sure that we were met off the ferry. I would recommend the house and skopelos island to anyone wanting a truly authentic Greek experience .

The house was great! We were met at the port by a friend who took us straight to the home. It is in a fantastic location and we loved everything about the house, especially the view. We had a great two days in Skopelos Town and would definitely come back and stay again. Thank you!

Beautiful traditional house in a great location close to the port. Stunning views and beautifully decorated. Very comfortable. The only issue we had was that the Internet access was very limited and ran out very quickly. Apart from that we absolutely loved our stay in this beautiful apartment.

Response from Glaukopis House:
The house is a traditional house in the heart of the town of Skopelos. The walls are very thick, made of ancient stone. Of course, there is not a good wi-fi connection at groundfloor, but in the panoramic living-room at the second floor the connection works very well. I would like to underline that we recharged the 20 euros of internet without asking our guests for money. The internet we pay as hosts is not for heavy use because it is connected to the mobile network, as it was clarified from the beginning.

My boyfriend and I stayed for a week at this beautiful traditional Greek house at the end of June and could not have asked for a more wonderful experience. The house is stunning and I don't think any pictures could really do it justice. When we arrived at Skopelos port our host, Alessandra was there to meet us and walk us to the house, only 5 minutes away. She showed us how everything worked, hot water, patio doors etc, and where to find things like extra sheets and pots and pans. The place was spotless and beautifully decorated. Alessandra had thought of everything! It was these little touches such as leaving out maps and guide books to Skopelos island, putting shampoo and shower gel in the bathrooms, ensuring that there were cleaning products and sponges in the kitchen, that impressed us so much. She had even left some traditional sweets on the kitchen table for us. She really couldn’t have done enough to ensure our stay was perfect. The house itself is located up a small alleyway in the heart of Skopelos Town so you have everything you need on your doorstep but the peace and quiet of a residential street. Every room was a good size but it’s the living area at the top of the house with the beautiful balcony views which is the real show stopper. Alessandra came to see us before we left to say goodbye and leave us a small parting gift which was completely unexpected and such a lovely gesture. My boyfriend and I wouldn’t hesitate to book this house again for another holiday. Everything about it was wonderful and Skopelos is a really magical island, but without such a charming, warm and accommodating host the experience could really have been quite different. Thank you Alessandra!

La mia ospite è stata gentilissima e sollecita fin dai primi contatti, mi ha consentito di chiarirmi anche alcuni dubbi che avevo sul soggiorno a Skopelos non collegati alla casa. La casa è deliziosa e centralissima sita in alto nel centro storico, su tre piani e ha due accesi esterni da due livelli diversi, il che ne aumenta la comodità. La cucina al piano inferiore è un pò buia e non particolarmente attraente, ma c'è un comodo bagnetto. Il secondo piano con le camere da letto e il bagno grande e il piano superiore, con un bel salotto e la vista sul mare sono splendidi. La casa è personale, vissuta e ricca di arredi anche antichi, in complesso una splendida soluzione consigliabile sotto ogni profilo.

We are a couple who rent houses in Greece and Italy. We love historical places, culture, the beauty of nature, the sea. We usually travel through Mediterranean countries, because we prefer warm climate, unspoilt landscapes, traditional architecture, archaeology and the southern way of life. We do adore Mediterranean cuisine, its tastes, its smell and its genuine and "lively" spirit. We usually read about travelling, history, poetry and philosophy. We love cinema too, especially independent movies, drama, fantasy, historical movies. As regards the music we listen, we like classical music as Mozart and Bach, classic rock music as Pink Floyd, U2 and Deep Purple, good pop music as Sting, traditional and ethnic sounds and, of course, Italian lyric music. We love theatre too.
We would host people from every country of the world, who search for holidays that combine relax with the discovery of ancient and true cultural values of the places they visit.
"Know thyself" is our motto and we strive for it.

Siamo una coppia che affitta case in Grecia e in Italia. Amiamo i luoghi storici, la cultura, la bellezza della natura, il mare. Di solito viaggiamo attraverso le regioni mediterranee, poiché siamo attratti dal clima temperato, dai paesaggi incontaminati, dall'architettura tradizionale, dall'archeologia e dai modi di vita del sud. Adoriamo la cucina mediterranea, i suoi sapori, il suo profumo ed il suo spirito genuino e "vivo". Generalmente leggiamo di viaggi, di storia, di poesia e filosofia. Amiamo anche il cinema, in particolar modo quello indipendente, il cinema drammatico, il fantasy, i film storici. Riguardo alla musica che ascoltiamo, amiamo quella classica di Mozart e Bach, i classici rock come i Pink Floyd, gli U2 e i Deep Purple, la buona musica pop di Sting, i suoni tradizionali ed etnici e, naturalmente, la lirica italiana. Ci piace, infine, frequentare il teatro.
Ospitiamo persone provenienti da ogni parte del mondo, che vogliano trascorrere vacanze che combinino il relax con la scoperta degli antichi e veri valori culturali dei luoghi che visiteranno.
"Conosci te stesso" è il nostro motto, e ci impegnamo per questo.
