Sail into the blue...

...or fly to Skiathos and catch the 'Flying Dolphin' to Skopelos, The Blue and Green Island as it is known. 'Blue', of course, for the translucent, tranquil seas and cloudless skies, and ‘Green’ because this island is one of the most fertile areas of Greece, with an estimated 80% covered in forest.

Central amongst the North Sporades chain of islands, just off the eastern shore of the mainland in the Aegean Sea, the beauty of Skopelos has drawn people to the island throughout history, most recently the producers of the Mamma Mia! movie. With the filmmakers now long gone, the island’s ambience has returned to one of peace and serenity.

It is here that a British couple has found its own piece of paradise – Eleni’s House. In the heart of the northern village of Glossa, it is a haven of spacious comfort and peace in which to escape the frenetic pace of modern life. Found as a neglected old house – thought to be at least 100 years old, with the walls probably much, much older – Malcolm and Sarah Avery have lovingly restored it and brought it up to modern standards whilst keeping the traditional character of the property. Unusual within Glossa, Eleni’s House has a garden with orange, pomegranate and almond trees in which to sunbathe or enjoy al fresco dining.
