Villa Pinot is a hidden gem for travellers looking for peace & quiet on an idyllic Greek island to get away from it all yet having easy access to the elegant Skopelos Town with its charming waterfront cafes & tavernas, just 10 minutes by car. The location is also perfect to access to the island's fantastic beaches (Limnonari, Agnontas, Panormos, Stafilos and many more!) and walking trails going through the lush pine forest.

Location & Access:
Villa Pinot is accessible via a short earth road (200m) off the main road and it has complete privacy from the road. The steps from the private parking space lead to the Villa and its private terrace. Away from major roads and noisy crowds, the only sounds you will hear are birds, cicadas and now and then the charming bells of the Skopelos goats in the distance. Away from the light pollution of the town, you will be amazed at night by the visibility of the Milky Way and shooting stars.
The villa is stylishly decorated by local artisans and a collection of vintage solid wood furniture gives it a charming rustic look. It has two bedrooms, one with a four poster double bed and one with two single beds. The open plan living area comprises a seating area with flatscreen TV (Netflix + AppleTV + Satellite), a desk for study or work by the hearth, a dining area, and a recently renovated kitchen.
All the mattresses in the bedrooms are recently replaced and the double bedroom offers a luxurious pocket-spring UK king-size bed. Mattress protectors provided along with fine linen.
The recently renovated kitchen is complete with an induction stove, oven, fridge-freezer, separate deep-freezer, dishwasher, stylish small kitchen appliances by De Longhi’s Icona Breakfast Collection complete with a filter coffee machine.
The bathroom has a rain shower, double-sink vanity, washing machine, and overlooks the swimming pool.
Through a combination of fly-screens and shutters on all windows, ceiling fans and central air-conditioning in the open plan living space, plus air-gaps through the open vaulted ceiling above the bedroom walls, there are many options to ensure you have a comfortable and consistent temperature throughout the whole villa.
The living room opens to a spacious, shaded and natural-stone veranda overlooking a fantastic sea view of Skopelos bay and the surrounding pine forest. It is a perfect spot to relax with a glass of wine and a good book while inhaling the warm scents of the Mediterranean herbs.
The shaded veranda leads to the beautiful swimming pool terrace complete with an al-fresco dining area and sun-loungers. There is an additional blissful outdoor shower next to the swimming pool (with hot & cold water) which is very refreshing during balmy summer months and gives you a complete sense of freedom.
The pool is larger than most others on Skopelos (7.5m x 4.5m x 1.5m deep). The filter and pump are concealed in a sound proof pump room, which also houses our fully automated salt chlorination and ph regulation systems (so no risk of chlorine irritation). The pool and surrounding terraces are all fenced off for your protection.

Interaction with guests
On first arrival to the island we can arrange for you to be greeted at Skopelos ferry port by a local contact. They will provide keys to the villa and instructions on how to get there (less than 10 mins drive from the port). On arrival to the villa you will find a welcome booklet with all the information you would typically need, along with our contact details for anything we might have missed. Throughout your stay you can always reach out to us or our local contact for any other questions or needs you might have. If we don't hear from you we'll assume you're enjoying the tranquil privacy of Villa Pinot.
Other things to note
There are around 30 steps from the driveway down to the villa which may be unsuitable for small children and the elderly (see picture). Please also consider this when packing luggage.
