With numerous windows, the space is light and airy and enjoys splendid views from the living room and dining area. The small but newly fitted kitchen is well-equipped and has a large window kitchen that allows for good lighting as well as lovely views to the pool and sea beyond whilst preparing meals. The new w/c shower room with washing machine is just off the kitchen. The wooden sleeping gallery is reached via a narrow spiral staircase and looks down into the living room. In the days of old, this area was traditionally covered with wide mattresses allowing sleeping space for all the family together during olive or fruit picking season. Today, this quaint little sleeping area is tastefully decorated and has space for two people (head room is restricted due to roof angle). It is furnished with double bed, a roomy wardrobe and its low window on the front wall has wonderful views down the valley to the harbour below. Exterior: Lemonia Cottage is traditionally painted with blue shutters and whitewashed walls. With mature gardens set in the midst of an olive grove, it is evident this country cottage was used by the family in bygone years when working the land. Today, its old world charm is kept alive in this restored cottage with sweeping views of velvety olive-clad hillsides spilling down to the whitewashed houses of the town and sea and across the sea to the neighbouring island of Alonissos. The front of the cottage has a spacious veranda, furnished with a table and plenty of outdoor seating for al fresco dining. It is partially covered by a pergola with an old winding grape vine, its leaves providing respite from the midday sun. Just below is the swimming pool, set in a cluster of Cypress trees and taking advantage of fabulous views. Enjoy the quiet morning sunshine with only the sounds of nature around and warm afternoons lounging by your private pool. SURROUNDINGS The cottage is set on a hillside and is accessed by a narrow, steeply winding road (good driving skills necessary) just above the town centre. Just a 7-minute drive in the car, brings you to the beautiful harbour front of Skopelos town with its maze of cobbled streets filled with shops, restaurants and cafes. Lemonia Cottage is great for walkers as well. The hillsides surrounding it are covered with old donkey paths and dirt tracks. From the harbour front to the cottage is about a 25-minute walk (mostly uphill!) . The route passes a fresh water spring with an inlaid sarcophagus lid that dates from the 5th century B.C. This same road belongs to a 300 year-old road network linking Skopelos town with Glossa. You can reach the small beach of Glyfoneri by walking for approximately 45 minutes, where you will find an array of typical tavernas with fantastic views to the sea. SUITABILITY Lemonia Cottage is a perfect retreat for a romantic holiday for two, privately set in the serene Skopelos countryside. Its stunning views and private pool will make leaving, even for the day, a difficult endeavor. CAR HIRE ESSENTIAL SLEEPS UP TO 2 PEOPLE

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

Paradise
On arrival at Lemonia Cottage it took our breath away, a secluded piece of paradise in Skopelos (we began to call home) with stunning views of thr harbour. What more could you ask for. The experience has been out of this world, our dream holiday! We will definately be returning. We fell in love with the cats and kept them well fed. Thank you Cindy & Christine for your help and kindness, and for making us feel so welcome. You must visit Cindy's restaurant Pizzeria Gousto (next to Vodafone shop) The drive up to the cottage was a challenge at first, but we mastered it! Thank you Renée for letting us stay in your beautiful cottage... we take away wonderful special memories
