This large, newly built house is a stunning and unique combination of modernity, tradition, richness and character all rolled into one fantastic villa.
As you enter, the feeling of spaciousness and openness is your first impression. The red tiled floors, reddish-stained open-beamed ceilings and wood details all blend to give a warm comfortable look to these generous rooms. Designed for large families and parties, you find a roomy, modern kitchen complete with built-in oven, dishwasher and microwave. With a blend of stainless steel appliances and plenitiful stained wood cupboards this well equipped kitchen makes cooking fun and easy. The kitchen is open plan and is next to the dining room which boasts a large wooden dining table and French doors leading out to a terrace that runs the length of the house. Here on the terrace, you find another big wooden table for al-fresco dining. The views from inside and out are dazzling, of whitewashed town houses spilling down to the harbour, views to the sea and the neighboring island of Alonissos and of gentle olive green hillsides surrounging you. From opposite the dining room there is sitting area with built-in style sofa and lamp to cozy up with your favourite book. Down a step from this level is a sunken living room, open plan with the rest of the rooms. It is complete with a corner fireplace, again with built-in style sofa and french doors on two sides. From one you reach the outdoor dining area and the other leads to the pool.
The four bedrooms of Villa Glyfo are spacious and comfortable. The only bedroom on the main level of the house is reached by a small hallway just inside the front door. This double beded room has open beamed ceilings, large closet space and French doors leading out to the front terrace and a barbeque on the side of the house. Also in the hallway is a w/c shower room, conveniently located right next door to the bedroom as well as for the common use of the upstairs.
The rest of the spacious bedrooms are found on the lower level of the house reached by a stairway descending from the dining room. A red-tiled winding stairway leads to a hallway at the bottom. Here you find three bedrooms, one with two twin beds and the others with double beds. The great feature of this house is that each of these bedrooms have a w/c shower room en-suite. Also, each have French doors leading to the lower level terrace running along the front of the house. Each are furnished with table and chairs and a private area to sit out and appreciate the same stunning views as the upper level terrace. Sit under the stone built arches, which are the trademark of the house, or a bit further out in the Greek summer sun and refresh your tan, all just a step outside your private bedroom.
Villa Glyfo is a newly built house where great attention has been paid to detail. Everywhere you look there is quality, from its furnishings to its architectural style, with beautiful stone arches and a well thought-out design. The pool area is located at the side of the house and is accessed through the living room French doors. It is surrounded by pretty low stone walls and lush landscaping. There is plenty of opportunity for sunbathing on the abundant loungers or just sitting around and relaxing in the peaceful, privacy of your own pool. Also, there is a large table and chairs for out door meals to be enjoyed around the pool with lovely views down to the bay below.
The property is situated in the hills behind the town and is accessed by a narrow, steeply winding road just above the town centre. From the house to the port is about a 7 minute drive and to walk from the house to the nearest restaurant, about 15 minutes. It's convenient location makes it a great choice for those wanting the privacy and quiet of the countryside, but very close to the town's amenities. Its location on the hillside, surrounded by olive groves crisscrossed with donkey paths, make it ideal for walkers and hikers. Below the house and within a 5 minute walk, there is a fresh water fountain with an inlaid sarcophagus dating from the 5th Century BC! and the road leading to the villa is part of a 300 year old road network linking Skopelos Town with Glossa. Another walk, to a small, almost private beach is approximately 45 minutes. Nearby, on the steep road leading down to the beach, is an array of typical tavernas with fabulous views out to sea.
Villa Glyfo's design and lay out is perfect for large get-togethers. This lovely, well appointed house with its great attention to detail give it a distinction above other villas. It is ideal for a family reunion or group of friends who wish privacy in a beautiful pool villa with fantastic views.
