Traditional Luxury Villa in Skyros
This traditional luxury villa stands since 1892 in the area of Krokos or Rock, on which it was literally built. By all measures it is the most prominent house on Skyros island. It is situated in the capital of the island, offering an unspoiled view of the Aegean Sea. Its perfect location in the village along with the view and the proximity of the largest beach of the island (400 meters) make this property ideal for anyone wanting the ultimate island vacation. The villa is built in stone and is fully renovated. Whilst the traditional and unique Skyrian architectural features were kept, the house provides all modern amenities and comfort. All ceilings and floors are wooden and all rooms have wooden shutters, painted in olive green. Bathrooms, veranda and patio are hand plastered and decorated with old tiles.
The 370 m² are split in three levels. The first floor has a spacious living room with splendid view of the Aegean Sea. The living room is equipped with a plasma television, cable TV, DVD Audio system and WI-FI Internet. There are three bedrooms on this main floor: A master bedroom (30m²) with a traditional fireplace, a small cloakroom and an en-suite bathroom as well as two more bed rooms with twin beds sharing a bathroom. All beds and furniture are antique and of great taste.
The ground floor is split in two levels. Entering from the patio is a two- space suite with a small living room with fireplace and a traditional sofa bed with joyful modern textiles, charming "sfa" double bedroom in the rock and a bathroom. This suite can be completely separated from the house, if someone wishes.
In the lower level (four stairs down) is the extremely spacious fully equipped kitchen with dining area, which is also connected through the internal main staircase of the house with the first floor.
The kitchen is equipped with Marchi furniture (Italian country furniture) and a very beautiful antique 12-seat table and colored Chalon chairs.
On the street level, next to the kitchen entrance, is a separate suite with a king size double bed and its own bathroom, with a big bergere chair and antique pieces. On the first floor, a 20m² veranda overlooks the sea and the horizon. On the ground level is a patio with a "pergola" and a sitting area, also with sea view and the characteristic "rock" of the house.
A local lady comes every day from 9:00 to 14:30, to take care of the cleaning of the house. She is a very good cook and available if you wish, to prepare all meals at an extra cost of 30 €/day.
Towels are changed twice a week and sheets once.
