Skopelos - Alonissos

SKOPELOS


If your holiday priorities are tranquillity, relaxation and natural beauty, then make your way to Skopelos in the Sporades. Layer upon layer of luscious shades of green make a stunning vista of pine trees stretching out to the seashore, where you’ll find hidden coves with fishing boats and winding paths leading through dense forests. Banish any thoughts of timetables or deadlines and spend whole afternoons just wandering around the picturesque main town. Amidst the cluster of cobblestone streets are tiny chapels and neoclassical buildings. Art comes to life everywhere in Skopelos: in the hand-crafted vases and hand-painted plates and in the embroidery and miniature model boats. The star of the hit musical Mamma Mia, which gave the island its recent fame, will also be the star of your holiday.

Skopelos town: You will see the town as soon as your ferry moors. It is the capital and harbour of the island and, spreading out across the cove, it skirts the landscape and climbs towards the ruins of a Byzantine castle. It’s all here: flagstone streets with whitewashed stairs, flowers on the patios, ornate arches, pretty windowsills, well-kept homes built by rich merchants, sailors and landowners. Tucked in among all this are 40 little chapels. This is the main town and it beckons to you to immerse yourself in its beauty, especially when you take a break at an ouzerie or have a drink under the mulberry trees.

Glossa: A small community built into the hillside on the northwestern part of the island, Glossa is known for its sleepy streets and the church of Panagia Eleutherotria (The Liberator). It is here that a shipwrecked sailor would come to pray for his safety. The story goes that he found the Virgin Mary’s icon and was saved. In the village, you will find a pottery workshop that keeps old traditions alive.

ALONISSOS


On the western side of the Aegean, on the edge of the Sporades, you’ll find one of the least developed Greek islands. Alonissos will captivate you with its lush, green landscape and pristine beaches, making it the perfect destination for those looking for a hidden escape waiting to share its secrets.

Alonissos is a place for profound relaxation and rejuvenation. The southern part of the island is embroidered with beaches, charming bays and green-blue water, with pine trees that reach the water’s edge. In the central and northern parts, you’ll find the traditional settlement of Hora and a network of marked hiking trails. You’ll forget the meaning of the word stress.

With its homes lined up like soldiers, Alonissos’ traditional settlement looks like a castle contemplating the sea from above. Wander around the streets at dusk as a crimson sun disappears into the sea. When you find it, you’ll be rewarded with one of the most beautiful sunsets in the Aegean.

A hiker’s paradise: You’ll discover pure, unadulterated Mediterranean beauty step by step. Whether on a leisurely walk or more strenuous hike, you’ll find pine forests, dense vegetation, cedar trees and holly bushes, not to mention wild herbs of all kinds. Make a point of hiking to one of the most beautiful spots on the island, the chapel of Agion Anargyron.
