Sitting on the edge of the village of Glossa, the cottage is one of a cluster of three holiday cottages on the same property. The three are within hailing distance of eachother but each is detached and secluded with its own character and private external areas. The cottage has easy access to the village with shops, tavernas and bus-stop, and is a 25-minute walk from the beach. There are also some beautiful quiet beaches and country walks through olive groves and pine forest, with masses of wild flowers especially in spring and autumn. This romantic cottage for two has been lovingly restored from an old stone-built wine store. The thick walls give the cottage a beautifully quiet and serene atmosphere, while also keeping it cool in summer and cosy in winter...

Interaction with guests
On arrival one of us will meet you and show you around the cottage. We are always available to answer any questions, phone a taxi, or print a ticket! Our home and office is on the same property.

About the neighbourhood
The Rough Guide to the Greek Islands calls Glossa `a quite beautiful, totally Greek town`. Correct! (Although with a thousand houses it is really a village) But it is out of date in one important detail. Glossa now has excellent water pressure year-round since the drilling of new boreholes.

The whitewashed village houses are interconnected with stone steps. Glossa is surrounded by beautiful countryside, ideal for exploring on foot or quad bike. Its blue-green beaches have become famous since starring in Mamma Mia.

There are a good selection of tavernas in the village, from fine dining to souvlaki, with the main square's restaurant hosting live music each night throughout the summer.
Getting around
A bus service runs from Loutraki, (the port of Glossa) with Skopelos town, stopping at all the main beaches on the south coast of the island. The service is regular in the summer months, however a car is useful to explore the hidden coves, quiet hills and isolated monasteries of the island.
Car advised
How to get there
Airport: Skiathos: 15.0 km
Ferry: Glossa / Loutraki : 2.0 km
In the summer months it is possible to get international flights to Skiathos and from there it is only 20 minutes on the ferry. These are run by Hellenic Seaways, ANES Ferries or Aegean Flying Dolphin. Out of season, you need to fly to Athens and get an internal flight Athens to Skiathos, operated by Olympic Air or Aegean Airways. Alternatively you can fly to Athens or Thessaloniki and get a bus to Volos and ferry to Glossa. I have factsheets available on request for travel to Glossa by these routes.
