The Details...

Ysyhia, you say? That’s Greek for tranquility, and it seems a pretty appropriate name for this adorable ocean-view cottage on the island of Skopelos. This is a true couple’s getaway, with not a building in sight and barely a sound to be heard, yet little more than 1km away from the village of Glossa.

It’s around 20 minutes by boat from Skiathos to reach the island, which is as unspoilt and charming as you could wish for. Peaceful Ysyhia sits amongst olive and almond trees, looking out across the sea towards the mountains of Evia, which you can admire while lounging in the private pool. It won’t take long to make your way to the beach – beautiful Perivoliou is within 10 minutes’ drive.

Inside, your hosts have thought of pretty much everything, and can always be contacted should you need any assistance. You’ll find a well-equipped kitchen (probably with some little treats waiting for you), and an open-plan living and dining area. The cottage has air-conditioning, and all your utilities including a washing machine, iron and ironing board are there, along with entertainment options including TV, DVD, games and books.

A cute bathroom has a pebble floor and shower, while the cosy double bedroom’s French doors open out on to the pergola, so you can enjoy the amazing sea view as soon as you rise. Speaking of the pergola, this is a real highlight: you’ll find a table and chairs (because you will want to dine outside) and it’s just a few feet away from the private pool. Stunning by day, and truly romantic at night, when the sky is filled with stars and there’s not a soul around to disturb you. It doesn’t get much more relaxing than this…

Skopelos itself remains picture-postcard pretty, with the town of the same name around 30km from Ysyhia. The island coastline is a must-see: take a day cruise from Skopelos, hire a boat for yourselves, or give sea kayaking or paddle-boarding a try. Many enchanting beaches lie largely undiscovered, and if that little church on the rock looks familiar, it could be because Ayios Ioannis sto Kastro featured in the film Mamma Mia.

Loutraki and Elios are around 6 and 10 minutes’ drive away, offering quiet waterfront cafés and tavernas, while Glossa has been described as the most authentic spot on Skopelos, with ‘perhaps the finest views on the entire island’. Nice to be within walking distance, then…

With warm summer temperatures generally lingering well into October, Ysyhia is serene, secluded and truly sublime.
