Description from owner


For your holiday whether its for one, two or more people this villa with its incredible views, comfort and location will be hard to beat. Villa Eleonora is named after the falcons that swoop over its elevated position above the unspoiled hill village of Glossa (only 10 minutes away with its shops and tavernas). Its secluded location feels private, despite its proximity to the beaches, the port, the Mamma Mia church and the village itself, and the villa is not overlooked by anything but the beautiful birds and wildlife. The views are truly staggering, taking in the islands of Evia, Skiathos and the Pelion, and away to the mainland as far as Mt Parnassus and closer to home down to the village of Glossa and its port of Loutraki The villa itself is built by hand in the traditional style of the island, with open-beamed ceilings of chestnut and pine, wooden balconies and tiled roofs, complemented by a modern clean touch and up-to-date fittings and equipment. It is a truly unforgettable experience.

There are plenty of outside spaces, verandahs, terraces , tables, seating areas and a barbecue to enjoy and eat alfresco in the wonderful climate of this Greek Island paradise.

The pool enjoys a private and ample lounging area, wooden cushioned pool furniture, stunning views and it is gated off for child safety. The pool itself is 8m x4m with marble steps and night lights.

The villa is in a perfect location as a base for exploring the island and the island itself offers perfect mountain biking, walking, bird watching and sea kayaking opportunities which can be arranged prior to your arrival as well as guided tours and trips.

Coast/Beach: Our nearest swimming beach is a ten minute drive from the house. It is a sheltered, sandy, clean and safe beach. This beach adjoins the village and is therefore close to amenities such as shops, and tavernas. There are scores of small, quiet beaches in the area that are ideal for bathing and picnics to be found on both sides of the island as close as ten minutes from the house.

Very Good

“Exceptional views and very peaceful”

Reviewed 14 Jul 2018

Enjoyed an excellent week at this villa providing the best views you could hope for across the bay to Skiathos, and down onto the port below. It is very comfortable, has two air conditioned bedrooms, again with views across the bay, very nice to wake up to. The balcony area is huge and we took advantage by having breakfast overlooking this superb vista eevery morning. The pool and surrounding area is also great, well equipped and very clean. The pool man will visit to keep it that way, absolutely spotless! The villa is very remote and you will need a car as the shops and Glossa centre are too far away both in terms of distance and height to make the trip on foot comfortably. This villa is located 300m above sea level. The steep road up is narrow but with a decent car it can be negotiated with relative ease. We only had one incident when it had rained heavily and coming back from the restaurant in Glossa, the car struggled with the climb... not for those of a nervous disposition, but with a bit of rallying and momentum, we made it! The only other issue was ferry timings from Skiathos... changeover is on Friday and unless you can get to the port by lunchtime, you have to wait for the 7pm crossing, we waited around 6 hours, not fun with luggage but plenty of bars and restaurants to keep you occupied.So take time planning your flight and itinerary because this villa is very very worth the effort

Response from the owner Thank you Tony for the review and for choosing my villa and I’m delighted that you enjoyed your holiday there. The reviews are so helpful for future guests and they greatly help me to make improvements and generally they keep me on my toes! I believe there was a heavy down pour during your stay. Which does make the winding roads tricky and indeed the road is steep enough up the hill, so I do recommend a Suzuki Jimney, as they will take you every where on the island. We as a villa community on the island are continuously encouraging the ferry companies to tie in more with the airlines. The alternative is a water taxi which takes fifteen minutes for the crossing and costs €150 for boat. In the mean time we will keep at them! Thank you again Tony.
