About the home
Ideally located for quick and easy access to all beaches and villages of Skopelos, Elies 2 is on the southern part of the island, above Limnonari beach and just off the main road.
Built in a plot of land that gently slopes down towards the 'big blue' of the Aegean sea, it offers stunning sea and countryside views. Olive and pine trees is the commanding vegetation in this part of the island.
We have planted our land with respect to the surrounding nature in order to create a unique combination of colors and light. The result can only be appreciated if you visit our land in person - even the pictures underrate reality!
Elies 2 is co-located with a 'sister' house, Elies 1; they both offer the same high standard accommodation and thus are ideal for rent by 2 friendly families - as each house accommodates up to a family of 5. They are also perfectly suitable for rent by separate groups/families/couples, as the houses are designed to be completely independent from one another...
Elies 2 benefits from a 60 sqm swimming pool (shared with Elies 1) with a shallow end perfect for children, and a jacuzzi.
The interior design is spotless; stone, wood, glass and modern furniture are all combined to create an aesthetic result that is beyond imagination!
Our aim is to create an ergonomic and exclusive environment for you, our guest.

The Sporades/Evia region
The archipelago of the Sporades comprises four main islands - Skiathos, Skopelos, Alonnisos and Skyros - plus a number of rocky islets which are ideal for fishing/exploring by boat.
Each island has its own special atmosphere; Skopelos in particular is renowned for its verdant landscape, picturesque bays, numerous monasteries, and Skopelos town ('Chora'), with its traditional architecture and countless churches.
Skopelos visitors can choose between a cosmopolitan vacation or a quite stay...
The Skopelos Island / Limnonari area
Enjoy peace and serenity at Elies House while swimming at the pool or dining at your private terrace...
Or you may want to dive into the crystal clear waters of the Aegean by driving (or walking) to Limnonari beach (2.5 km downhill - bar & watersports available). More outstanding beaches are located in the vicinity: Panormos & Andrines (7 km), Milia & Kastani (8 km - scenes from 'Mama-Mia!' where filmed there...), Stafilos & Velanio (7 km).
If you feel like exploring more remote or 'secluded' beaches, then, pop down to Panormos or Skopelos town to rent a boat of your own - ask on-site for further details..
Skopelos however is not just great beaches and sea: if you feel energetic, there are great hiking/mountain biking paths...ask on-site for further details.
The most picturesque and busiest village of the island is Skopelos town ('Chora') - only 5 km driving from Elies Houses (approx. 8 minutes) with a number of good restaurants and bars. The nearest amenities are located at Agnontas - a tiny settlement in a causy bay , only 2 km from our houses with three sea-side fish taverns.

We stayed at Elies Houses the last week of June 2011 and we can honestly say we could not have made a better choice. The location for us was the best on the island as well as the villa itself. Perched high above Limnonari Bay/beach, set among olive groves and fragrant flowering gardens with absolutely breathtaking views where one can enjoy the sunsets from the infinity pool, it was pretty hard to pull ourselves away and tour the island. But of course we did and whenever we got back it was like coming home.
Foula and George are the most gracious, considerate and discreet hosts. There is no language barrier since they speak French, English and German fluently. The houses themselves are conveniently located close enough to Skopelos town,, some of the best beaches on the island and even Glossa is not more than a 20 minute drive. And even though they are high above the beach they are just off the main road easily accessible by car.
Tips:The two houses are semi-detached sharing the pool so they are perfect for extended families or two families which are friends and would like to vacation together. But even if you book only one house and the other is booked by strangers there is still enough privacy. Having a car is essential as it gives you the freedom to come and go as you please as well as the opportunity to see the island. The fish tavernas at Agnondas bay are 2 minutes away, as well as beautiful Limnonari beach. Adrina and Panormos are also close by. You must have lunch or early dinner at Agnanti restaurant in Glossa.
Top notch. If you have time drive around some of the monasteries on the island but keep in mind they close between 2 and 4 p.m. Climbing up to the top of Agios Ioannis is also a must but go early to avoid the crowds.
We loved every minute of our stay at Elies Houses and we cannot wait to return. If you decide that's the place for you, you will not be disappointed.
