Ysyhia is modern, bright and airy. It has a private pool that is the perfect size for flopping about in. The kitchen is well-equipped without being full of clutter and you will likely be offered fresh eggs or vegetables from our garden depending upon availability.

We love the forest and the view of mountains on Evvia. Ysyhia is far enough from civilisation to be astonishingly quiet and restful yet close enough to be convenient for shops, beaches and eating out. The view is, of course, stunning, and with no light pollution, the night sky is bursting with stars. No other buildings can be seen from the cottage and none overlook it. Our house is up the hill on the same 1½ acre plot. Each house has its own private access and a fence separates the 'farm' from Ysyhia and its garden. A grove of olive and almond trees provide each house with total privacy from one another but we are on hand should you want help or advice.

The Sporades/Evia region

If lounging around beside the pool or on a beach is not your style, there are plenty of other things with which to occupy yourself. Skopelos Island is very popular among walkers, but you can also hire bicycles from Skopelos Town. You could rent a boat for the day, go sea kayaking or paddle-boarding with the local specialists, or perhaps you may wish to join us for a jaunt in our own boat. There are also day cruises available from Skopelos Town to the marine park around Alonnisos where you are likely to see seals and dolphins.

In Glossa (1½km away on the dirt road or 5½km on the tarmac road) you will find several small supermarkets, cafés, tavernas, restaurants and some gift and craft shops that tend not to stock the usual beach-holiday souvenirs.

Loutraki , the Port of Glossa (5km on the dirt road or 8km on the metalled one) has some lovely waterfront cafés and tavernas. It also has a pleasant beach and a nightclub.

Elios, also known as Neo Klima (11km away) has some waterfront cafés, a butcher and the nearest ATM.

Skopelos Town (30km away) has some larger supermarkets, lots of tavernas and gift shops including a jeweller and some exquisite pottery.

The church of Ayios Ioannis sto Kastro, which featured in the film "Mamma Mia" is 11km from the cottage.

Skopelos Island

The nearest beach is Perivoliou, under ten minutes by car and even in the height of summer you will often find you have it to yourself. Unspoilt and beautiful. There is also a delightful beach just below the monastery of Ayios Ioannis sto Kastro, the tiny church on a rock which featured in the film Mamma Mia. This is about twenty minutes by car. There are many other beaches nearby if you prefer your beach experience to include a bar, taverna or music.

Our smallholding is predominantly a mixture of olive and almond trees. It also includes a small vineyard, a sizeable vegetable garden and a developing fruit orchard. We keep hens and a couple of sheep. Matt tends most of the plants and animals, makes the wine and does a bit of fishing. Sarah makes preserves, answers guest queries and cleans out the hen-house.
