“Superb Location”
Reviewed 1 October 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Over the West facing bay of Skiathos, this beautifully designed villa pays exceptional attention to detail in both colour and finish. All needs are met from kitchen utensils, soft big towels, fresh linen and even local olive oil soaps.
Shane organised a rental car for us on arrival as well as provisions for the kitchen and that evening's meal as we requested. His local knowledge and contacts enhanced our stay considerably.
Meticulous cleanliness throughout the villa and a great BBQ by the well maintained pool as well as executive seats viewing the sunset every evening. We really enjoyed our stay here and the beautiful beaches nearby.

“Beautiful villa on a stunning and peaceful Greek island - the perfect retreat!”
Reviewed 28 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Villa Eleonorae is quite simply an absolute gem.
It is set alone on the top of a hill, with stunning views that take in the harbour of Loutraki, the hillside town of Glossa, and the neighbouring island of Skiathos. We spent many hours enjoying the view from the veranda with it's hammock and comfy chairs. Because you are not overlooked by anyone, you can fully relax and feel at home here straight away, enjoying the immaculate pool and gardens at the villa. Shane has built the house so thoughtfully, with plenty of outside space, whether you want sun or shade, all day long. To top off the spectacular views, the villa also enjoys the most incredible sunsets. Inside the house was spotless for our arrival, cool and comfortable during our stay.
So long as you have your own vehicle (preferably a jeep as the track up to the house is pretty steep!) you don't feel at all isolated as you can reach the nearby town of Glossa within 5 minutes. The shopkeepers at the local supermarket are incredibly friendly, and all necessities can be found here. Glossa is a really lovely spot to be based near with some nice restaurants, bakery and classic Greek streets to wander. Agnanti was our favourite restaurant but we also liked the cafe in the little square by the church.
The whole island is easily explored - no where takes any longer than 45 minutes to an hour to drive to. We visited some fantastic beaches (Perivoli was top in our books), seaside tavernas, churches and enjoyed a couple of trips to Skopelos town. For one trip we took the 'scenic' route through the island's interior and over Mount Delphi.
Shane was a fantastic host, great communication before our stay and incredibly helpful while we were there, though not at all intrusive. We were travelling with our one year old daughter, and Shane provided all amenities we needed, including setting up additional safety gates for us around the villa in advance of our stay - much appreciated. Magic Cars who we hired our Suzuki Jimni from were also excellent.
All in all we can't fault this holiday - it was perfect for what we wanted and the villa was of an exceptional quality.

“Beautiful villa; incredible location”
Reviewed 10 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

person found this review helpful

Villa Eleonorae is beautiful and the location is really incredible - sitting on the balcony watching the sun go down was such a treat. The villa is up a steep road but this was no problem in our jeep - and being high up is what makes the views so amazing.

The villa itself has everything you need and is beautifully decorated. The bedrooms and bathrooms are extremely comfortable (and air conditioned), the kitchen is well equipped, and the outside space of the villa gives multiple options for eating outside in the shade or sun at any time of the day. The pool area is beautifully done, and again benefits from the stunning views. There were many days when we just lazed around by the pool or on the balcony as we couldn't tear ourselves away from the view!

Shane and Stefanie looked after us fantastically well; meeting us from the ferry, coming around every other day to clean the pool and giving us lots of tips for the best beaches and tavernas to visit. The island of Skopelos is very beautiful and green, and the sea is fantastic for swimming in - so clear, and with a huge choice of beaches to visit within easy driving distance.

We had a wonderful two weeks here, and would recommend it to anyone. Thanks Shane and Stefanie - hope to be back for another visit before too long!

“Amazing views”
Reviewed 28 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We had a fabulous week in this beautiful villa. The views are spectacular day and night - sunsets are amazing. A perfect location if you want to chill out but likewise have beaches, restaurants and places of interest nearby including the famous stunning church in Mamma Mia. You will have everything you need for a relaxing holiday. We will have fond memories of Skopelos and time spent at Villa Eleanorae - thank you to Shane for sharing!

“The most idyllic, gorgeous, friendly, private, holiday perfect location ever.”
Reviewed 23 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Outstanding service.
Beautiful property.
Excellent location and close to amenities.

The owners are charming and I as we sat upon the verandah watching the sunset eating delicious local food covered in the provided marvellous olive oil, we wondered if we had landed in paradise.
