Fantastic stay

- We had a fantastic stay at Villa Idealia! Afroditi and Mr Giannis made us feel very welcome and looked after us superbly from the start, meeting us on arrival in the early hours of the morning with an amazing array of home cooked food! The fridge and freezer was groaning with food and drinks too, so we didn't need to see a supermarket for the first days ! Bliss! This high level of attentiveness and generosity continued throughout our whole stay. All delicious!! Afroditi made us feel very relaxed in the knowledge that she was available at the other end of the phone any time of the day or night and was more than happy to answer any questions we had, however trivial and with great humor! This was our first time in Skopelos and Mr Giannis was great at suggesting places for us to visit accompanied by detailed directions on maps! Villa Idealia is absolutely stunning! Is a brand new, very minimal house, in a very quiet location with privacy and yet so close to the beaches and Skopelos town. And with no traffic at all like other places have. The Villa is beautifully furnished and is immaculate. Villa can easily host 8 guests .The photographs don't do it justice. Cleaned for two hours every three days including bed linen and towel change too. The large pool is beautiful and has the best filtering system I have ever seen as somehow it manages to remain amazingly clean between the every day visits from the pool man! Then, last but definitely not least is that amazing view!! The view is mesmerizing, the sunset and the aura makes you feel at incredible peace. We sat for hours every day and night just looking at the stunning scenery, and watching the boats sailing into Panormos Bay. We never tired of looking at this view, the amazingly blue color of the sea and the contrast of the mountains on the other side of the bay is so beautiful, we had to drag ourselves away when we realized we should probably see more of the island!! Thank you Afroditi.

Villa Idealia is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!!

   - So luxurious and so comfortable! When I first saw this listing, I thought it was too good to be true. The view looked too amazing and the space looked way cooler than anything I have seen on the island. But, indeed, everything is just as amazing as it looks in the pictures if not better. I have stayed in many AIRBNB villas before, but Villa Idealia is the best one so far! "Value for money" is guaranteed! The villa is a work of art aesthetically. There are lots of different seating areas outside (I can remember at least 5) on two different levels. The location is perfect for those who want to stay near the activity but get some solid quiet and peaceful sleep! The house is located in the pine-clad hill side, but it is within 15 min walk to Panormos beach (for sure one of the best in Skopelos) if you feel like going for an early morning or a late evening swim. The pool is filled with fresh non-chlorinated water. It is very clean and in a perfect temperature. It was a big hit with our kids and it allowed us to spend quiet late afternoons at the house after a day of sightseeing or enjoying the beaches. And of course there is a great wireless sound system with speakers by the pool. The beds were super comfortable and the fresh towels were very soft (3 per person). Guest amenities and toiletries were also provided. The rooms were modern and super clean with high-speed internet. Well equipped kitchen and living room designed to the last detail. We absolutely loved the place and Afroditi and Mr Giannis were such great hosts! They were so nice and responsive and were accessible to any question we had. They gave us great tips for places to visit and restaurants to try and of course I must admit that the home-made cheese-pies, marmalades and wines which were prepared especially for us was the most welcoming gesture I have ever received. Thank you. We had a wonderful time and I am sure many guests will be pleased with this Villa.  

Μost amazing view foreseeing the Aegean sea with great privacy

   - The host, Afroditi, responded quickly to any question that we had. The house is located in a more remote area of the island. Yet, it has the most amazing view foreseeing the Aegean sea with great privacy. We had some issue with the hot water system but was able to solve the problem after contacting Afroditi. Overall, we had such a wonderful time there and would definitely recommend it to people who aim to get away from their busy life.  

Truly IDEAL!

   - It is not about the breathtaking views, it is not about the simple elegance of the architectural design, it is not about the facilities, it is not about being isolated in the middle of the nature without bothering neighbours, it is not about the pool parties, it is not about the welcoming hosts, it is not about the beaches, it is not about the kids who told us it was so much fun and never wanted to leave the house, it is not about the locals. It is all together that made our holiday truly IDEAL!

Phenomenal view

   - The house is situated in the quiet area of Mortero, among pine forests and olive groves. Ideal for rest and true relaxation. The view is phenomenal. Mrs. Katerina and Mr. John looked after and offered us fresh eggs and almonds from their garden. Villa Idealia is ideal for families with children. We are very happy with our choice and we will definitely return.

Very well appointed villa in quiet, fairly remote location with fabulous views towards Panormos

   - Villa Idealia is a newly built villa located just below the owners property. On arrival, friendly Giannis of the owners family was on hand to offer a warm welcome and provided fresh figs on a couple of occasions that he had collected from his own garden. The villa itself is reached via a 10 minute drive along a track and hire of a 4x4 is certainly recommended. A car is needed to travel anywhere, though that is no hardship and a normal arrangement for many villa locations on Skopelos. Villa idealia is extremely well appointed whether eating or just relaxing in or out and there are lovely views towards the coast at Panormas. It is possible to walk to Panormas, about a 20 min hike downhill, but the high temperatures in August put us off, so we didn't try. In any event, the walk back uphill is very steep and probably not so much fun in the dark. We enjoyed a couple of days by spent by the pool but also spent a lot of time getting about the island, there is lots to see and places to explore. We enjoyed the nearby beaches at Panormos and Milia, but were quite disappointed with other beaches at Kastani, Limonari and Stafylos so didn't stay put at any of these. They are all beautiful locations but annoyingly busy and in the case of Kastani and Limonari, over developed, loud music etc! Not what we had hoped for, and probably not why people go to Skopelos in the first place. I hope those in a postion to influence development in Skopelos heed the learnings of other beautifully located holiday destinations in Majorca, Corfu, Cyprus, Turkey etc that are now regretting the greed they tolerated and which has caused blight they are now trying to undo. Probably too late. But as a whole, Skopelos is definitely not over developed and there is probably something for everyone. It is a beautiful island and if you are prepared to travel, a number of quieter beaches to explore. For example, Perivoliou on the north-east of the island was lovely. We ate out most evenings and found plenty of great restaurants in Panormos, Agnondas, Glossa and Skopelos Town. And having been out, it was always a joy to return to Villa Idealia and sit out on the terrace for the rest of the evening talking about the day past or planning the next. The villa, and the island of Skopelos was enjoyed by all five adult members of our family and we are very likely to return, we have no hesitation in recommending Idealia as a wonderful place to stay. Highly recommended.  

Paradise Found!

   - From the moment we arrived at Villa Idealia we kept pinching ourselves to be sure we weren’t in a dream. This is surely holiday paradise? There aren’t enough superlatives to do it justice - breath-taking views, luxury finishes in all the rooms, stylish and modern décor coupled with traditional stonework, sympathetic artwork, pool-side music speakers, perfectly landscaped gardens with olive trees and fresh rosemary…….did we mentioned the breath-taking views…..?! The villa is tucked away in what is arguably the best spot on the whole island. Private & secluded in amongst the trees, over-looking the Panormos bay below (it is honestly a view you will never forget). The owner’s father is on hand should you ever need anything (and thank you for the fresh eggs, figs and homemade pie!). The pool is naturally saline / non-chlorine treated so kind on the skin, the outdoor shower tucked behind the olive trees is a wonderful addition, the kitchen well-stocked and fully-equipped, the beds, linin and bathroom toiletries are the height of 5-star luxury…..even the sun-loungers and veranda chairs are stylish! The owners have thought of every last detail. We will never forget this place and would love to come back one day, but I fear the calendar may be forever full! Thank you again Afroditi and Stathis for letting us stay in your beautiful home.   

Really Ideal

   - We enjoyed the house very much. It is really a wonderful place. We especially appreciated the phenomenal view and the calm situation where we were spared from traffic noise. The nature around the house is splendid. The villa itself exceeded our expectations. It is carefully and tastefully furnished and the moskitonetting on the doors and windows was great (never seen before in such perfection). During the last night when the temperatures rose to tropic heights we were very glad about the airconditioning in the rooms. We enjoyed lying in the shade of the olivetree and watching the swallows dive into the pool to catch a beekfull of water. My husband who likes to cook was happy with the well-equipped kitchen. The neighbors greated us with a tasty Sporadic dish (skopelikiti tiropita). Every day we enjoyed a fresh egg from the hens next door.   

"The prettiest place that we have ever stayed at"

   - Villa Idealia is like it has come out of a Hollywood movie! It is very safe and secure in a peaceful location with incredible sea view and total privacy. All pictures are true but not as extraordinary as to stay there. It’s about fifteen minutes walk to the sea (perfect path for walking). City centre is about ten to fifteen minutes drive. The villa itself is bright and nicely decorated. The pool is a sea water pool & a great size for this Villa. We spent most of our time by the pool. We loved the fact that there is a great wireless sound system with speakers by the pool. Internally, the house has a great setup, and plugging our Amazon Fire USB into the smart TV meant we could get access to the Internet and movies whenever lounging at the house. High speed internet, well equipped kitchen. Bedrooms are good sizes and cozy and all have access to their own bathroom except one of the rooms. Villa was exceptional clean with plenty of towels provided, also including towels for the pool. The outdoor area is great too with lots of space and an amazing garden. We had a really wonderful time. The villa is perfect for large groups. We were welcomed by the host and throughout our stay we got all the help we could wish for. Our group did not want to leave and we definitely will rent the villa next year! Thank you very much for all !!!   

Beautifull house with all you need!

   - We enjoyed our stay and highly recommend this beautiful home. The rooms are immaculate, the pool large and the outdoor furniture comfortable and plentiful! Rent a car and use the home as your base as you explore the island. Our hosts were so helpful and friendly. You look out at a gorgeous view of Panormos bay and beach. The hike down to the beach takes about 30minutes and is quite a climb but totally worth it. You can also easily drive down to Panormos, avoid the climb and have your car to bring groceries back. We ate many meals at the Nikos restaurant right on Panormos beach. So tasty! Some nights we sat and drank wine while the kitchen prepared great dishes to go! We then ate them up at the house on our beautiful outdoor dining set. Can't recommend this Villa more highly! Thank you, Afroditi!  

Exceptional in every respect...

   - From the moment we arrived - and we were met at the port by our charming host, everything was just perfect. The house is brand new and very well designed. The villa was spacious and very clean .Three bathrooms made our stay luxurious. Almost every day the cheerful and helpful host attended and kept the house sparkling. We enjoyed ourselves completely. I jumped in the pool almost every morning or night. I will miss the beautiful view from the villa . The location could not be better. Just twenty minutes from the town , and no more than ten minutes from three fantastic beaches (Panormos , Milies , Kastani ), ranging from all day party-time through to Greece as it used to be. Nearby, is a quality supermarket that sells all that one needs. We had a wonderful time and our expectations were exceeded on every level. Highly recommended.   

Ein Traumurlaub

   - Wir haben eine wundervolle Woche Traumurlaub in der Villa Idealia verbracht. Alles war perfekt, bis hin zur persönlichen Betreuung durch den im Nebenanwesen wohnenden Vater der Vermieterin, der uns mit frischen Eiern, Feigen und den traditionellen Teigtaschen versorgte. Die Villa ist bestens gepflegt und liebevoll eingerichtet. Der Blick auf die Bucht von Panormos und die Sonneuntergänge unbeschreiblich. Man könnte viel aufzählen, was an dieser Villa für eine Ferienwohnung außergewöhnlich ist. Wer die Abgeschiedenheit mag ist hier bestens aufgehoben. Nochmals Dank an alle, die und so gastfreundlich umsorgt haben.

Really wonderful home!

   - We had a great stay at villa Idealia during 5 days in August. The villa looks and feels brand new, everything in and around it is perfect. The best view ever. Well looked after and taken care of by very friendly people. Kids had so much fun in the pool, extremely clean and looked after daily.   

¡Una casa impecable!

   - Limpia, cómoda, muy bien equipada, con unas vistas impresionantes. Atendida perfectamente por el padre del propietario que recoge la basura, quita los cojines de las tumbonas cuando llueve, soluciona las dudas que puedas tener, etc. La playa de Panormos esta cerca, unos diez minutos escasos en coche, hay varios restaurantes ahí mismo y se puede bajar caminando por un sendero en unos 15 minutos y alguno mas en subir (Con casi 60 años y sobrepeso) Única pega: el acceso en coche es por un camino sin asfaltar, un par de kilómetros escasos, que se recorren en cuatro o cinco minutos   

Perfection!

   - What a fantastic property. We have travelled extensively and love villa holidays and this is without doubt the best we have ever stayed in. The villa is remote and the wasps are a bit of a nuisance but apart from that it is absolute perfection. The views and the sunset are better than anything we saw in Santorini which is renowned for sunsets. The villa is well equipped with the best of quality from wonderful beds (amazing sleep), quality furnishing, great surround sound and TV, fab kitchen - no expense has been spared in this villa. The fresh eggs in the morning and the cheese pie were, like everything else the best of quality! Warm, friendly father of the owner delivered them. We hired a jeep which is essential as the villa is so remote. We visited many beaches and towns but our best moments were spent chilling and relaxing at the villa with a glass of Greek white wine and great food. Perfection. We would highly recommend this villa - you will not be disappointed. If you enjoy good quality, peace and tranquility, relaxing, chilling and great views this is possibly the best villa you'll find in Greece. From booking to departure everything was well managed, friendly and top quality. Absolute perfection.  

Perfect location for a getaway!

   - Villa Idealia is a beautiful house which is (very) well equipped and comfortable. It has a great view on the Panormos bay and its rural location makes it a perfect location for a getaway holiday. Owners were incredibly helpful throughout our booking and stay. They met us at the port upon our arrival, gave us plenty of advice and assistance with our vehicle hire booking, places to go and things to do while in Skopelos. Owners’ parents were lovely and very discreet neighbours who were very generous with their eggs and tomatoes. We had a brilliant stay and would highly recommend Villa Idealia to any of our friends going to Skopelos.  

Breathtaking

   - We arrived very late on the day, and basically had dinner and went to bed. The following morning I awoke and went out on the balcony. The views took my breath away..... Sea view all around. Priceless! It is a brand new house offering all modern amenities and a crystal clear swimming pool. Αnd of course ….wifi is available all over the villa. I can't think of any negative point. A lot of space, good taste, clean, terraces with wonderful views. The landscape is peaceful and calming. Hosts are awesome people. They left a detailed description of everything we needed to make our holiday a memorable one. Places to visit, good restaurants, how everything works in the house and so much more. It is THE house where I would like to go back for a relaxing stay on one of the most beautiful islands of the World!  

Amazing Villa !!!!!

   - The hosts were there for us from the minute we made our first request online until we left her beautiful Villa. The view is amazing, the rooms all with tasty interior design and lots of space everywhere. Fully equipped kitchen and total romantic place. The kids loved the pool. The views are amazing, even from your bathroom you can see the sea. To drive to town takes only 15 min. The Villa is exactly as it looks like on the pictures and we enjoyed it very much. I already want to come back to Skopelos!!!  

Paradise in Skopelos

   - Perfect everything. I recommend it. It is one of the most beautiful places I have ever been. I fell in love with it immediately.  

The best place

   - The best place we have ever stayed with the most amazing hosts and views. Everything was way over average. All seven of us , adults and children, had a wonderful time, enjoying the house facilities, pool, wi-fi and excellent sound system. I will definitely come back and recommend to my friends. Thank you very much for helping to create lovely memories.
