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.

One of the best places to stay in Skopelos

Simply AMAZING!!!! Definitely a place to Revisit!!!
Set in a beautiful location, the villa is surrounded by olive groves & tall pine trees giving peace and privacy all day long. It is a beautiful place, where you can really get some rest and enjoy your vacation with your family and/or friends! The pool, the barbecue, the wonderful scenery is just enough for you to relax and escape from your everyday life!!! The nearest beach is only 5 minutes away, but you can always take longer trips and explore all the beaches and attractions of Skopelos! But what we’ll definitely remember about Skopelos was the extremely accommodating Kardous Villa. Natassa and her beautiful family made sure we felt like home. She made us feel very comfortable from day one. The house was extremely clean and nicely decorated. The pool was cleaned regularly, along with the rooms, which was great! In addition, the kitchen had anything we could need, including the barbecue stand on the terrace. In the evening, we had an amazing view of the sunset, which gave us the opportunity to take lots of pictures! Our stay there was wonderful and we would definitely recommend the Kardous Villas to anyone who is thinking of coming to Skopelos.  We promise that we WILL be back!

Enchanting house in the hills of Skopelos
Our time in Skopelos was marked by the beautiful beaches, tavernas and sunsets. However what we’ll surely remember about Skopelos was the extremely accommodating Kardous Villa. Natassa and her wonderful family made sure we felt right at home. When we arrived, we already felt comfortable. The house was extremely clean and nicely decorated, which makes you see the effort put in it. The pool was cleaned regularly, along with the rooms, which was really helpful as we had two children with us, who tend to make a lot of mess. Also, the kitchen had everything we needed, including the barbecue stand on the terrace. In the evening, we had an amazing view of the sunset while eating seafood sourced from the local fishermen. Natassa was there to make sure we had everything we needed and was lovely enough to recommend us the best restaurant in Skopelos and all the beaches and attractions we need to see. Our stay there was wonderful and we would definitely recommend the Kardous Villas to anyone who is thinking of coming to Skopelos.

Delightful villa, attentive service
This villa is a lovely house on the beautiful island of Skopelos. Its position is convenient if you like to explore as it is half way between most points of the island, making all the main beaches and towns accessible (you must have a car though). The two main bedrooms were spacious and comfortable; the third in the roof space is on a mezzanine open to the lounge and kitchen. The house and pool were exceptionally clean and tidy - a cleaner came every day, unobtrusively (waiting until we were out) - this made the holiday much more relaxing for me! The kitchen had all the kit you need for cooking and there were plenty of clean towels for swimming and the beach. The only downside to Skopelos is the insects in the evening; as its forested there are many mosquitos and wasps, so be prepared with your insect repellent!!

Beautiful villa
Η παραμονή μας στο Villa Amaryllis ήταν μια απο τις πιο ομορφες διακοπές που κάναμε. Όλα ήταν υπέροχα, όλοι οι χώροι του σπιτιού πεντακάθαροι και ήσυχοι. Η εξυπηρέτηση και η φιλοξενία της Κ. Νατάσας και της οικογένειας της είναι άψογη, ίσως η καλύτερη που έχω συναντήσει ποτέ και θα ήθελα να τους ευχαριστήσω όλους που συνέβαλαν ώστε οι διακοπές μας να μας μείνουν αξέχαστες.!! Η τοποθεσία στην οποία βρίσκεται το σπιτι είναι πολύ καλή και ήσυχη και προσφέρεται ως η καλύτερη βάση για εξόρμηση προς πάσα κατεύθυνση και κυρίως πολύ κοντά στις ομορφότερες παραλίες της Σκοπέλου όπως η Καστάνη (mama mia!), Μηλιά , Πάνορμος. Και τα 2 μεγάλα χωριά της Σκοπέλου είναι επισης κοντά στο σπίτι. Σίγουρα θα ξαναπάω και σίγουρα θα το πρότεινα σε όλους. Ένα τεράστιο μπράβο για τον υπέροχο χώρο που έχετε δημιουργήσει!!

Promesse tenue !
Nous avons passé 9 jours en famille (deux adultes et trois adolescents) dans cette magnifique villa. La description faite sur le site est fidèle à la réalité et la vidéo disponible sur YouTube permet de voir la disposition de façon transparente avant de réserver. Nous avons particulièrement apprécié tout l’espace offert par la villa ainsi que l’intimité créée par la distance avec les autres habitations. La piscine était spacieuse et minutieusement entretenue. L’espace autour était accueillant avec deux grands parasols, des chaises-longues confortables, des tables et des chaises. Les propriétaires ont le souci d’offrir à leurs visiteurs un service irréprochable et de rendre leur séjour inoubliable. Leur présence est discrète et leur permet de veiller sur tout sans déranger. Leur gentillesse et leur prévoyance est un des atouts de leur villa ! Comme c’est indiqué dans la description, la villa se situe sur une colline au milieu de pins et d’oliviers. Ceci rend le paysage magnifique mais il faut être conscient que la voiture (ou la moto) est nécessaire pour tout déplacement. Ceci étant dit, avec un véhicule on se rend rapidement aux plages à proximité et le trajet vers la ville de Skopelos devient vite une habitude (15’ pour une conduite prudente). Il faut dire aussi qu’un véhicule permet de découvrir d’autres endroits plus éloignés de l’île. Nous avons particulièrement apprécié Agios Ioannis, Perivoli ainsi que le site Sentoukia (nécessitant une marche à la fin du chemin). Nous recommandons vivement la villa Kardous et nous remercions kyria Natassa et toute l’équipe pour leur accueil remarquable !

La villa kardous est parfaite pour passer de très bonnes vacances. Nous étions 6 adultes. La maison est grande (+ 2 très belles terrasses) et très bien équipée. Nous avons apprécié le calme, la vue et surtout la magnifique piscine. Le tout est tenu dans un état parfait tout au long du séjour. Nous remercions beaucoup Natasa et sa famille qui ont été des hôtes très attentionnés, désireux de satisfaire nos demandes et de rendre notre séjour très agréable. Nous recommandons vivement!

Amazing Villa
The Villa and location is amazing all amenities catered for, Natassa and her family the owner are excellent hosts always there if required to cater for your every need nothing is to much trouble you only need to ask. It is well maintained and kept spotlessly clean by the maintenance staff who do an amazing job. It is set in a beautiful location surrounded by olive groves & tall pine trees giving peace and privacy all day long. The terrace has fantastic views especially of an evening sitting with a glass of wine watching the sun set with your loved ones. It’s very local to the best beach in Skopelos the Panormos beach full of tavernas and cafe bars only a five to ten minute drive from the Villa, or if you like walking we did it in three quarters of an hour very pleasant and dramatic scenery on the way. Car hire is recommended at Magic cars very straight forward and laid back they are just as you enter Skopelos town centre close to the ferry terminal so good for collecting and returning the vehicle on arrival & departure. There is also a family butchers just up from there that has fantastic products produced fresh every day just perfect for the barbecue at the Villa. Plenty to see and do all day long or just sit and relax and watch the world go bye. Any more information required please ask. Best Regards Andrew (Nottingham UK)

About the neighbourhood
Skopelos is not only the largest island, but it is also the capital of the Sporades Island chain. Its charms are many and varied: firstly the /chora/ or main town of Skopelos, is considered by many to be one of the prettiest harbour side towns in the Greek islands. It is built amphitheatrically around a natural, perfect, simi-circular harbour. Dating back several centuries, it is protected by a preservation order, and so has managed to retain its old world charm. Entering the harbour by sea reveals the striking Byzantine churches which crown the sheer cliffs protecting the town. It is well worth spending time to explore its labyrinthine maze of narrow, stepped streets to admire the mostly Venetian architecture. As you wander through the colourful, flower-filled backstreets of town, the houses are charming and beautifully kept and around nearly every bend is an enchanting little chapel. No matter how small these chapels may be, the interior of each one is exquisite and unique. The island is famous for its numerous churches, Skopelos Town has more than 120 churches; the island, over 360 churches, chapels and monasteries.As we head down nearer the waterfront to the towns centre, one finds small neighbourhood utility shops such as markets, hardware and dry cleaners right alongside the good selection of quality tourist shops on offer. This gives the town the feeling of a living, working community with a heartbeat still focused on ordinary life outside of tourism. The shopping district spills down naturally to the harbourfront and boasts many shops producing locally made products. A good variety of pottery, jewellery and lace can be found, much of which is hand made by local artists in unique and beautiful designs. The picturesque harbourfront is lined with mulberry and ancient plane trees which provide shade from the summer sun to the numerous tavernas, bars and cafes. Food varies in its quality and taste, but in general Skopelos boasts a number of excellent tavernas and restaurants. Several tavernas, particularly in the old harbour area, have traditional home-cooked meals where the proprietors prefer the tradition of inviting guests into the kitchen for an examination of the dishes on offer. The waterfront becomes a lively hub of activity during the high season months. The evening brings out horse-drawn carriages with their well-dressed drivers, street vendors selling everything from corn and nuts to sponges and handmade costume jewellery. You can have your portrait painted, hair braided or skin tattooed by the varied and colourful characters who circuit the Greek islands to ply their trade. The waterfront is closed to all traffic in the evenings and often there is music, dances and local festivals. The busy harbour itself is another story and it is fascinating to watch the intricate ballet of the huge ferry boats as they enter and dance around the tiny fishing boats to moor their bulky forms. These ships are the life link to the islands and carry all of the supplies for everyday living to stock the homes, shops and restaurants. Alternatively, the high speed Flying Catamarans, which are fairly new to the Sporades, create a comfortable and efficient system of carrying locals and visitors to and from the islands. Definitely, the harbourfront is the best place to sit back, relax and let the world go by whist enjoying a meal or drink. Morning, afternoon or evening, there is always an interesting sight to watch and become intrigued in. Heading out of town, one discovers the wonders of the exceptional nature and pristine beaches that make Skopelos a true gem of the Greek islands. There is a wide selection of beaches from which to choose, whatever your taste. The majority of the beaches are situated along the southern coast, which are accessible by bus, car or moped along the islands one main road. A hired boat on the southern coastline is a great option for those looking for real privacy. With the freedom to cruise wherever the mood strikes, you have the opportunity to find tiny sandy coves lapped by turquoise sea, which likely will be shared with just a few seagulls.Often referred to as the 'greenest island in the Agean&quot Skopelosnature is pure and un-spoilt for those who enjoy walking, mountain biking or exploring the back roads. The interior of the island has a myriad of unmade tracks and trails which pass by peaceful country chapels and through tiny hamlets which often give unexpected glimpses of the sea. In a single walk you may pass through an amazing variety of terrain. From rolling hills and valleys filled with almond, plum, walnut, chestnut and olive trees, past free flowing mountain springs, and up steep mountain tracks surrounded by the extensive, lush pine forests. Your company will be only sounds of the wind in the pines, bird song and the distant tinkle of goat bells. Throughout a day of walking, you may only meet up with a goat herder reigning in his goats for the day or a friendly farmer with his mule in tow. All in all, Skopelos island offers the visitor a rich and varied holiday experience. As one of the most traditional and picturesque towns found in the Greek islands with its expanse of pristine nature, beaches and clean water, it is a place to fall in love with. It is no wonder why so many who visit, feel the pull to return again and again.During the months of April and May, the islands are carpeted with a profusion of wild flowers, such as poppies, wild irises and freesias. The weather is mainly sunny and warm, with occasional showers, and cool evenings.The sea is usually cool and warms up towards the mid of May. There is a feeling of activity and excitement as everyone prepares for the summer season ahead. In April, the Greek orthodox Easter festivities are definitely worth experiencing. April and May are ideal months for walking, painting and all special interest holidays.By June, the sun has become hotter, although the countryside is still fresh and verdant, and there are still flowers to be found. The sea becomes warmer too, and all bars, tavernas and other facilities are functioning. The islands are still fairly quiet as most of the tourists have still not arrived, making June a good time to visit.From mid July onwards, the islands fill up and August is the busiest month of the year. The air and sea temperatures reach their peak and evenings are warm, although some respite is offered by the strong winds known as ?meltemia?By September the islands begin to return to their quiet self although most of the tavernas, bars and clubs are still open, and there are enough people around for there to be a lively atmosphere in the towns. The countryside is still beautiful, as the wild pink cyclamens appear and the bracken and foliage turn golden. The weather becomes a little cooler, and there is an increased risk of showers, especially as October draws nearer, but this is still a good time to swim and enjoy the sun before the winter. Towards the second half of October, tavernas and most other facilities begin to close down.If you have never witnessed Easter in Greece and you are at all interested in its culture or are a true Greco-file, this is a holiday that is not to be missed. The holiday begins with Big Week and culminates with Big Friday, Saturday and Easter Sunday (Pasca). Good Friday begins with each of the village churches decorating the Epitafios a symbolic bed where Christs body lies, which is elaborately decorated with flowers by the women of each Parish. A friendly rivalry between the parishes exists for the most beautifully adorned. After an evening service the church bells are rung, signaling all of the villagers to gather at the church carrying a simple brown candle which symbolizes the death of Jesus. A candlelit procession begins at the highest church in the town and proceeds down the narrow winding streets, stopping at each of the main churches, thus adding its Epitafios and parishioners to the procession. The procession eventually reaches the waterfront only to head back up to the top and complete the circle by returning each parish to its own church. This procession through the town is so beautiful and moving, such a special sight that will not soon be forgotten by any visitor.In contrast to the fairly somber Friday evening, Saturday nights mid-night service brings joy and happiness as the parishioners gather outside of their neighbourhood church. Tonight, they hold a beautifully decorated white candle which symbolizes the resurrection of Jesus. At midnight the bells are rung and the priest pronounces “Christ has Arisen!” He offers the parishioners the “Light of Eternal Life” from the Holy Candle and this flame is then passed from person to person uniting the entire community in celebration. With candles lit, the villagers disperse to carry the holy flame to their homes. Here they make the sign of the cross on the lintel of the front door which is thought to bless the house for the entire year. Then the feast begins with the traditional Easter soup being served, the fireworks and celebrations last until the early hours of the morning. Easter Sunday is usually enjoyed at a beach or country house with roast lamb on the spit.
