MAIN DESCRIPTION The interior and surrounding property are perfect for families with children, couples looking for a romantic escape, or a group of friends getting together for a reunion. The house is surrounded by a vast fenced garden that displays a 100-years-old BBQ, hammocks, sunbeds, and many chairs and tables to sit either in the sun or under the shade of an olive, fig, almond, pomegranate, or lemon tree. The rural area around is scenic and ideal for long walks and mountain biking. Your own/rented vehicle is essential to move around the island. The closest beach is 10 min drive and the most iconic beaches are 15-20 min drive away. Close by, there are several ancestral mountain trails that lead to Skopelos town within a short walking distance downhill.

The stone-built fireplace dominates the living room, as does the lofty wood-beamed roof that houses a spacious loft area on one side. The loft is reached by a steep spiral staircase and can sleep two persons on the double bed, although the best feature of the loft is the door leading to a roomy terrace/sunning area. The views are lovely, facing east to the sea and the island of Alonissos and south toward the Stafilos Valley. This spot boasts the most stunning sunrises from which the house derives its name, Kalimera, meaning 'good morning' in Greek. The loft and double bed area communicate visually with the living room underneath. The living room is furnished with traditional built-in sofas (which can be used as two single beds) and a coffee table in front of the fireplace. It is open plan to the country-style kitchen, which has terracotta tiled flooring and pretty blue accents. A spacious wooden dining table sits in the middle of the room. On one side of the kitchen, there is a door to the master bedroom and on the other a door to the bathroom. The spacious master bedroom is furnished with an antique wardrobe, double bed, and an en-suite w/c shower room. The house offers all modern amenities respecting its traditional style. We also offer our home for long-term rental – reach out for more information. Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: G.N.T.OLICENSENUMBER0756K92

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.

We had the best time in country villa Kalimera and cannot wait to be back. It is so we'll kept, beautiful, cozy and homey that it is worth it to go to Skopelos just to stay there. The villa is also close to amazing beaches and the old town so you will have plenty of opportunities to explore. I can't recommend this place more!!

Superb country house stay to reset all your senses
Every place comes with a story but in today’s travels, it’s rare that you get to know the story of a house and be immersed into its universe with such ease. Time flows differently here, reminding you that there’s more to the day-to-day motions of life. Alessandro’s house has that rare quality of drawing you in instantly and ushering you to pause, take a moment to reflect and be grateful for the beauty that surrounds you. This place and piece of land are stunning in every regard - it has all the comfort and amenities one might need for a relaxing holiday, but these are earthly things. You come here to tend to your soul, replenish your energy and meet the Greek Gods.

Cozy and quiet country villa with wonderful views!
Alessandro's and Gabi's home is such a gem 😍 We rented the house last year in September for vacations, and fell in love with the house and the island! So, we decided to come back for a longer term stay and work remotely for 3 months (April-June), and it was one of the best decisions we could make! The house has everything you need for both short term and long term stay - fully equipped kitchen, AC, good wifi, big smart TV, swimming pool and lots of outdoor space for enjoying the nature and stunning views 😍 The hosts even prepared a box with equipment for doing exercise, which is really useful when you're here for a long term like us. The owners, Alessandro and Gabi are very nice and welcoming, and are there to help with all the questions. They also speak several languages! We still have some time left here, but already want to come back 😊

Amazing relaxation experience
We loved our stay here. The nature and the house welcome you and provide you with a level of peace and bliss and relaxation that is hard to achieve otherwise. Relaxing on the hammock under the old olive trees is a magical Greek experience. Will be coming back many times in the future.

Stunning Views, Peaceful, Private, and Perfect
What a fantastic, peaceful place Villa Kalimera is! It has expansive views, a wonderful pool, and various garden seating areas. The interior of the house is decorated with a wonderful Greek flavor. There's an upper terrace with a view, where you can even sleep outside under the stars and wake to sunrises. The owners are super nice people and very helpful, with a quick response time. The house is a perfect base to explore the many beaches on this green island of Skopelo and it's only a few minutes drive down into town. I highly recommend staying here.

Merveilleux !
Nous avons passé de merveilleuses vacances dans la villa Kalimera! Elle est très bien située, à 15 mn de Skopelos avec une vue absolument incroyable sur la mer, les îles, le port. Au soleil couchant, c’est magnifique ! Elle est aussi bien située pour visiter l’île et ses différentes plages. La maison est ancienne et a beaucoup de charme avec ses objets de famille, le jardin avec ses arbres fruitiers. La piscine avec la vue sur les collines est nettoyée tous les 3 jours de même que la maison. C’était très agréable ! Nous avons eu une excellente communication avec les propriétaires qui nous ont donné beaucoup d’informations avant le voyage et sur place. Un endroit authentique pour profiter de la vie.

Chère voyageuse, Nous sommes ravis que vous ayez passé d'excellentes vacances à la Country Villa Kalimera ! Sa situation offre une vue imprenable sur la mer, les îles et le port, surtout au coucher du soleil. La maison ancienne, pleine de charme avec des objets de famille, et le jardin avec des arbres fruitiers ont ajouté à votre expérience. La piscine, entretenue tous les trois jours, a été très appréciée. Merci de partager ces moments authentiques avec nous ! Bien à vous, Gabriella & Alessandro

Fabulous vacation
We had a one-week-long vacation at Skopelos from which 4 nights were spent in VIlla Kalimera. Originally we booked the villa for 7 nights but due to the COVID situation our flight was cancelled and the alternative one departed 3 days later. Alessandro is one of the most supportive and correct hosts I've ever met, he changed our booking intermediately without any additional fee and answered all our questions very quickly. The Villa itself is fantastic, traditional Greek, cozy with a beautiful small garden and hammocks overlooking the pool and the hills. My favorite morning exercise was to pick up and eat the ripped figs that fell from the tree during night. Villa has a quiet terrace from which you can see the port, the sea and the hills alongside with other islands. So overall, I'd recommend the villa everyone who likes naturality and the transitional Greek style. If you arrive by ferry I strongly recommend to arrive to Skopelos Port instead of Glossa since the villa is located close to Skopelos city.

Dear Peter, It makes us really happy to hear we were part of an unforgettable time with your family in Skopelos. We know that planning a trip can be challenging, and that is why we make sure to share through our written communication the necessary information in order to create a relaxed state of mind when our guests arrive at our home. Indeed, our home setup is organized in a way to create "pockets of tranquillity" so every guest has his own privacy - either inside the premises or outside in the garden. We really hope to see you again! Wish you the best.

Wohlfühlen pur mit Traumaussicht in ländlicher Villa
In wenigen Minuten ist man mit dem Auto in Skopelos und am Strand, obwohl man dieses Paradies eigentlich garnicht freiwillig verlassen möchte. So spektakulär und grandios ist die Aussicht auf das Meer und die Insel. Die Ruhe und die leichte Briese, zusammen mit dem wunderschönen Garten und dem Pool lassen einem den Alltag fast vergessen. Und da war dann der Eigentümer Alessandros liebenswürdig, freundlich und immer hilfsbereit. Er hat mit viel Liebe die Villa innen gestaltet, dass wir uns nur einfach wohlfühlen konnten. Von der komplett ausgestattenen Küche, über das Wohnzimmer, den Schlafzimmern und Bädern überall wird diese idyllische Atmosphäre spürbar. Die Aus-und Einblicke und mehrere Sitzplatze tragen dazu noch zusätzlich dazu bei. Alles was in der Übersicht beschrieben wird, haben wir vor Ort vorgefunden und wurde sogar noch übertroffen.Jederzeit wieder.

Happy happy happy location
Siamo state una settimana a Villa Kalimera e non volevamo più andarcene. Un angolo di paradiso sulle colline di Skopelos. Una splendida villa di campagna piena di oggetti di antiquariato e piccoli dettagli molto curati. Fuori caldo, dentro casa, fresco. Che vuoi di più? Ci siamo godute il grandissimo giardino con tanti angoli dove fermarsi e la piscina per rinfrescarci. Il terrazzo ci ha accolte per l’aperitivo con vista sul golfo. Consiglio a tutti di andare a villa Kalimera. Una casa di campagna perfetta per trascorrere vacanze perfette. Casa con tutto quello che serve e anche di più. We love.

Beautiful vacation!
Our stay at this villa was just marvelous! The place is very quiet and relaxing. It's amazing for people who want to feel close to nature and like authentic traditional scenery of the Greek country side. We loved the house so much! All the furniture and vintage decoration give it a lot of character. We also enjoyed the garden because it's very shaded and comfortable with cute tables and chairs under olive trees. We spent a lot of time relaxing on hammocks and the swimming pool and we got a beautiful view of the sea and green hills. But our favorite place was the balcony from where we could watch the sea and the port. It was so romantic to have a glass of wine there under the starry sky. I absolutely recommend this place and I hope to return soon!!
