Beautiful pine clad Skopelos is officially the greenest island in Greece and Glossa is the jewel of the island.
At the height of the summer there are tourists here, but not many and mostly Greeks from the mainland who have already discovered this wonderful place. In the spring the countryside is alive with wild flowers and the migrant birds arrive – you can see Bee Eaters, Eleanora`s Falcons and many more.
Skopelos Island is just hard enough to reach to deter mass tourism, but easy enough if you know how – and you are prepared to be a little independent. See Getting to Glossa
Glossa sits on a hillside looking down to its delightful little harbour of Loutraki and over the sea towards Skiathos. The streets are narrow and more suited to the donkeys which still use them than to cars. Connecting the few streets are steps, some of them long and steep. Most of the traditional town houses in Glossa have a front door downstairs and the back door upstairs, opening on to the next street up.
The views from Glossa are stunning and almost all two storey houses have a balcony where you can sit and enjoy the view and catch the breeze. The good news is that some of these houses are for sale at quite low prices and there are cottages, houses and villas available to rent for holidays.
And Glossa is where we have set up our home and business. We sell houses, land and businesses, help with all the legalities, sort out builders if you need them and manage your project from start to finish.
Prices on Skopelos are very reasonable compared with Italy or Spain and for EU citizens the process is simple. Take a look at the price list.
