Our Home For Exchange

Description of the home we are offering for exchange

Home on a perfect Greek island. Perched above the harbour in Skopelos old town, the house is a blue-shuttered Greek house. Our neighbours are all Greek. The house is just behind a church and in the churchyard, there is a lovely cafe bar in summer. Steps lead down to the waterfront and all the wonderful tavernas to be found along the waterfront. The house has two levels. It is the upper level apartment that is offered for home exchange. This includes a spacious living area and kitchen, a large bedroom and a bathroom with shower. Stairs lead up to a roof terrace with sea views. It is also possible to use the downstairs apartment if extra space is needed but we prefer to exchange with couples or single people only. Skopelos Town has a beach within a 10 minute stroll and there is also another beach within a 15 minute walk of the town. However, the best beaches on Skopelos are a 10-15 minute drive away. You can catch a bus, drive or get a taxi to Stafilos, Agnondas, Limnonari, Milia, Kastani and more.

Neighbourhood

Description of our neighbourhood and surrounding area

Skopelos Town is a picture-perfect harbour town with cobbled streets, white houses with blue shutters and delightful tavernas. It provides a glimpse of authentic Greece. The scent of jasmine is in the air and houses are decked in bougainvillea. A short distance from the town, you can visit beaches, fishing villages or walk in pine forests. Our house is in Vrakos, just behind a Greek church dating back to the thirteenth century. It is perched above the harbour, with great views from the roof terrace and with all the delights of Skopelos in easy reach. The Mamma Mia film was shot in Skopelos. for its extraordinary 'green and blue' vistas and of course the church on the rock.

Attractions

Our home exchange - places to go and things to do while staying in our home

It is a short stroll to a wonderful choice of tavernas and harbourside bars. Many have live Greek music. There are also fabulous boutiques and artisan studios to explore. There are too many to list here but we will send our recommendations to our exchange guests. Wallking around the winding streets of the old town is an adventure and you will come across many beautiful churches and hidden gems. You can self-drive or take a bus or taxi to the beaches and visit hilltop monasteries and the church on the rock made famous by the Mama Mia film.

Our Preferences

Our home exchange - here are our Preferences and House Rules

We are easy going and do not really have any house rules. We enjoy sharing our home on this gorgeous island with people who appreciate Greece as much as we do. Non simultaneous exchanges tend to work best for us due to the greater flexibility.
