Eye-catching landscapes, lush nature, authentic Greek island atmosphere and openhearted people. Located in the archipelago of the Northern Sporades, Skopelos is one of the most remarkable islands in Greece. An unspoiled paradise in the middle of the Aegean. Skopelos has maintained its authenticity both in terms of environmental purity and culture.

Ecology, farming, local gastronomy, traditional customs, fresh air, simplicity, serenity and warm hospitality.
Joining in farm life, boat fishing, handcrafting and much more, goes beyond a simple travelling experience. It is a way of life. A return to nature and traditional values, the personal relationship between people, between the sea and the land. A guest that soon becomes a local.
