“Wonderful views, beatifully designed villa”
Reviewed 6 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013

This is our second time at Petaloutha and as previously we had a fabulous time. The villa is on the top of a hill and is isolated enough if you want to be away from everything. On the other hand if you want to go to places everything is of easy access and the driving didn't bothered us. The views are amazing and I could stay there for hours just staring at the views and the shooting stars ... A perfect place to relax. The villa is designed with the traditional Greek design in mind but it is very unusual and interesting. It has all the comforts of modern life and you do not feel shut from the world. We loved staying there and happily would return at any time. Highly recommended.

Liked best: The views
Liked least: As the property is surrounded by lots of trees and is in the countryside, be prepared to face some insects, but it's nothing that a good repelent will not resolve.

Just back from our third holiday at this unique villa. We love it. The setting, villa, location and the island of Skopelos are all very special. It's one of those few places you get to and can immediately relax. The property owner and the managers are so helpful and friendly. Prices have come down on the island too and so long as you remember some reef creepers, the beaches are wonderful. G&Ts at sunset here cannot be beaten.

“This is a gorgeous house in a wonderful location on a fantastic island”
Reviewed 8 June 2012 for a stay in May 2012

My family has been coming to Petaloutha for many years and it is always the highlight of the year. Sitting on the terrace looking out over the pool to the sun setting on the distant mainland with the ‘floating islands’ of Skiathos in the midground is as good as it gets.
The house feels so far from a rental property, it is really a well-loved home. The main octagonal open-plan room is brilliant - bright, cool and has astonishing views from every window. The design is warm, cosy and stylish. The views from every angle are stunning, from sunrise on the back balcony to shade on the new terrace under the fir tree by the pool. There is a great feeling of space and exclusivity – and it is easy to find shade and your own space even with the house full.
Cannot wait to be back there next year.

“A wonderful home for a perfect holiday”
Reviewed 6 June 2012 for a stay in May 2012

Petaloutha greeted us at sundown on a warm May evening. We opened a bottle of red (purchased along with all our other stores on our short journey up from the ferry at Loutraki from Yannis’ supermarket on the way) and watched spellbound at the fiery sun setting behind Mount Pelion miles away on the mainland from the Petaloutha’s west facing balcony. It was pure magic and a mind-blowing welcome to Skopelos.
I can’t think of anywhere else that I have ever been that comes as close to my ideal of paradise as Petaloutha. It’s comfortable, well furnished, architecturally different, and occupies a very beautiful, commanding position overlooking the neighbouring islands and the mainland – all of which seem to float in the Aegean and all at a distance, giving a feel of a theatrical romance. You have to be there to understand this.
While staying at Petaloutha, we visited many parts of the lovely island, but were always keen to get back ‘home’ to the villa; for sitting out (there is somewhere to sit in the sun or in the shade, as you prefer, at all times of the day) reading, daydreaming, eating, drinking, chatting, listening to nature, looking - doing whatever you like to do; and of course swimming in the crystal clear pool…….. ALL without anyone overlooking you.
We went out to eat on a few occasions. Quite the best place for lunch and evenings, for us, was Agnanti in Glossa. A proper foodie restaurant serving good ‘non taverna’ dishes at prices which compare very favourably with others on the island.
This villa is the perfect escape but is still close to the beautiful town of Glossa (we walked there and back many times) as well as the beaches, especially our favourite, Perivoliou - a short 10 minute drive away.

“Country living in style”
Reviewed 31 January 2012 for a stay in August 2011

After a long day's travel, you are met at the port by the excellent managers, Matt and Sarah. They escort you to the property and after the adrenalin settles after attempting the drive for the first time, you have arrived at the house at the top of the hill. You drink in the views, straight from the tourist brochures, and feel the relaxation coming on strong. Remember what the Milky Way looks like; remember what it feels like to eat a fruit picked off the tree; remember the sound of silence. Listen to the sound of a bell on a farm animal and the ships' horns far, far away on the sea. Hold your glass of wine up and let the setting sun shine through it. Learn why the villa is so named. Tough to take. There is lots to do, all the more enjoyable because the island is not packed with other tourists. Ideal for a romantic getaway or for families. You will go back.
