The Sporades/Evia region
Skopelos is known as the island of green and blue in greece because the huge pine forests that cover much of the island stretch down to the crystal clear blue waters. They filmed "Mama Mia here because of the natural beauty of this largely unspoilt island and of all the islands of Greece they chose this one .
The island was divided into 2 by its central mountain range until the mid 1960's when the road was built and still it feels like 2 islands. Skopleos Town in the south is beautiful and has all the main facilities of a capital town but for we Glossa residents the north of the island is unparalleled in it beauty and peaceful nature . Glossa town (big village really) has a spectacular position overlooking the western approaches from Skiathos island and has all the tavernas shops etc it needs while remaining traditional with warm and friendly people who enjoy an unhurried way of life..
Anatoli Villa is just behind Gloss village about 2 miles (in a straight line) about 1/2 walk or 10 minutes drive. Its set in beautiful countryside, rural but not too remote and a short drive/walk to the beaches down a track through the pinewoods. its about 20 minutes to walk down but the walk back is a little longer depending how fit your are!
The Skopelos Island / Glossa area
The beaches below the house are lovely and unspoiled and just 2 miles away is the famous church on the rock from the Mama Mia film. There is a nice beach next to it too. Nowhere on the island is more than 40 minutes away so there are hundreds of kilometres of forest tracks in the hills and beaches and coves everywhere. There are lovely walks all around our villa and birdwatchers will love it. The sea in front of us is a marine park and monk seals breed there and we often see dolphins feeding.
Some friends have just started sea kayaking expeditions and there are boats that tour the nearby islands including a glass bottomed one.Also it is a paradise for mountain bikeing.
There are many churches, monasteries and archaeological sites to visit too.
