Travel Options

As Skopelos is such an unspoilt island it does not have its own airport. Changeover day for Skopelos is Friday. Flights arrive into the neighbouring island of Skiathos and there is a regular ferry service to take you across to the port in Skopelos Town from where all the properties in this brochure can be reached within 20 minutes.

Please note that departure times of connections do vary over the season and a wait may sometimes be necessary. In this case luggage can be stored at a nearby café and the town explored.

Nowadays, the variety and choice of flights from UK airports to European destinations is considerable. We do not tie you in to a package holiday with prearranged travel; you are free to choose flights from your closest airport using any charter, scheduled or low cost airline.

We always recommend booking your flights and hire car as soon as you have decided on your holiday accommodation. You will find that fares are usually lower and the choice of flight times is wider.

If you need to place a 'hold' on your chosen property whilst you are booking your flights we are more than happy to do this for you. We can book flights on your behalf if you would like us to, for this service we charge a fee of £30 for each return flight booked

Villages and towns in Skopelos

Skopelos Town

As the first port of call when arriving on the island, Skopelos Town welcomes all with its whitewashed houses, an abundance of bougainvillea and many other colourful flowers. This little town is the capital and main port of the island. The centre of activity is along the harbour front, and it is soon obvious why the town is known as one of the most picturesque and unspoilt in Greece. Dotted along the harbour front and looking out to sea are many tavernas and shops. Locals and tourists alike gather here during the day for a spot of lunch, passing the time watching passengers on the numerous boats as they travel to and from the port.

Skopelos Town is, however, most impressive when evening falls. Illuminated by the setting sun, the town offers a relaxed ambience and an opportunity to mingle with the friendly locals. Although the harbour is the main focus of activity, Skopelos Town does have its secrets. A climb up the hill through a labyrinth of narrow cobbled streets reveals around 120 churches and monasteries concealed behind the harbour. Climb to the castle at the top of the town and enjoy the local speciality - spanakopitas (cheese pies) - found in the traditional shops and small tavernas in this area.
