Historic 3 storey house in best part of town, with high ceilings, original woodwork & traditional Pelion character. Spacious living with kitchen, dining & sunken lounge, 2 bedrooms on the first floor & top floor sleeping area, terrace & balconies.
This beloved house was our summer holiday home from early childhood. Despite being a town house, it is spacious and airy, spread over 3 floors. On entry, the sunken sitting area with corner fireplace and built in seating and worn stone floor gives the house a warm charm.
Because of the spot in which the house is in the village , we don't have air conditioning in the structure , we find that the ceiling fan on the top floor airs that room enough and that the two middle rooms having windows and doors opening to the balcony give that amount of circulation that makes it comfortable.
The dining area, with original windows and terracotta floors and the kitchen corner, with an electric stove /oven, small fridge, washing machine and small appliances has all you need to cook up a Greek feast.
Wooden stairs take you to the first set of bedrooms. One room has a "tall" double bed and a French door that takes you on the wooden balcony shared also by the twin bedded room. Both rooms are a comfortable size, with ample closet space and share a bathroom with a shower, toilet and basin.
The second flight of stairs take you to the traditional "averto" with a double bed and two single beds, a perfect hideaway for the kids or a small family to sleep together. Double glass french doors take you onto another wooden balcony with views of Skopelos town, parts of the harbour and the hills surrounding the town.
The house is located at 10 minutes maximum from the port into the old part of the village by walking calmly through the tiny roads which are not wide enough to host cars in them. This daily walk will give you the chance of getting to know the little roads that take you"home "
There are public parking at the port and at the top of the village (which may be closer to the house ) for cars , if you rent a motor bike or scooter you can reach the property directly .
The house is rented as an entire house. Sheets and towel are included. Clients are welcome to use the washing machine. Extra cleaning is available at clients request, be settled directly to the house manager.
Interazione con gli ospiti
One of our family will meet you at the ferry and take you to the house, a short walk through the pedestrian town. We live in a small cottage on the way to the beach so, should it be needed, one of us is always available for any sort of information. Also, as Skopelos is a small village guests will end up seeing us more than needed! We are always happy to have a chat and give local advice. We do have a local phone number as well as the listed number and will be available when needed.
Altre cose da evidenziare
3 nights is the minimum stay but We believe that a one week is a the shortest advisable stay at The Mosaic House, not for the number of nights but because the island has so many delights and little secrets that guests will want to discover.
The house does not have air conditioning , however it does have a ceiling fan in the top floor and that seems to do the trick.
Please note that the property is located in that part of the village that is reached by foot as the narrow roads dont permit cars to fit in them, however the walk from the port is not difficult and the 10 minute stroll is quite pleasurable. There is a few short cuts but have steps and are steeper than the other ways.
Please no smoking in the bedrooms. Bring your own beach towels. We do have beach umbrellas in the house and if you wish to use them you are more than welcome to.
