The Sporades/Evia region
Karya is an old rural settlement dating back to at least 200 years. There are quite a few old & newly renovated weekend retreat cottages, (or "kalivia" in local dialect), scattered around the lush landscape, each surrounded by their own private land, creating a natural artists's canvas.
It is definitely worth exploring the area either by car or walking and really appreciating the beauty of this place. Mount Delfi, (hence the name of the cottage), the highest peak of Skopelos, (685 mt), can also be explored and reached either by walking, (about 1-2 hrs), or driving, (road unpaved). There, you can reach the Observatory old tower, where panoramic, breathtaking views of the entire Sporades area will more than reward you...!! If you are a photographer, or simply enjoy taking pictures this is a MUST.
In addition, reaching the lower side of mount Delfi, one can discover "Sendoukia" the neolithic tombs, strategically placed at the edge of the eastern side of the mountain, overlooking towards Alonissos island. There is surely a positive "energy" and vibe about being in this place, (you need to walk to the top of this hill to find Sendoukia, about a 15-20min. rewarding walk).
Skopelos Island is the largest of the 3 Sporades Islands, (Skiathos and Alonnisos), with a coastline of 35 Km and an area of 97 sq. Km, of beautiful traditionally built villages and lush pine forests.
If you are the type of traveller who is looking for a place that has more than..."just a beach to relax all day"...then, surely, you discovered the hidden paradise we call Skopelos.
Skopelos was always known as a destination for the more "demanding" traveller, due to its diverse landscape and the variety of places to see and do...!
More recently however, and due to the shooting of the movie "Mama Mia" taking place here, (more than 70% of the scenes were filmed here), the island became more notorious to the "Romance Seekers" and couples looking for the PERFECT wedding spots as well.
Whatever your idea of a perfect holiday may be, Skopelos will surely accommodate the needs and imaginations of every demanding traveller....!!
