This Skopelos hideaway is a classic Simpson Secret, nestled into native Mediterranean woodland that stretches as far as the eye can see. The location is perfectly private, a magical spot to slow down and reconnect with the natural beauty that makes unspoilt Skopelos so special. You could spend the entire day here relaxing on the terrace or by the pool, idly observing the subtle colour changes as the sun moves across the sky and the birds swoop and dive above. As dusk falls on a summer evening, you can help yourself to a lemon for your G&T from the tree in the garden while you ponder the delightful dilemma of dining in on your private terrace, or dining out in Skopelos Town, just 15 minutes away by car.

The house belongs to a British singer-songwriter, whose creative talents are evident in the tastefully understated décor that’s perfectly in keeping with the rural location. Exposed stonework hints at the history of the building, though you’ll find everything you need here to holiday in contemporary comfort, including two en-suite bedrooms to suit friends as well as a couple. The house lies at the end of a 300m unmade road, so some patience is required from the driver, but for romantics, nature lovers and anyone who just needs to escape to somewhere quietly beautiful for a week or so, this Simpson Secret is an inspired choice.

Customer feedback

A last minute bolthole for us and what a fantastic place. Absolutely perfect and wish it could have been longer. Thank you to Tam and Marcia for making us feel at home and for all the practical help. Our first visit to Skopelos and we loved it. Good restaurants in town.
The Foulkes family – August 2019

Thank you so much for a fabulous two weeks. Such a beautiful setting – eating lunch on the terrace and watching the sun go down whilst having a G&T with lemon from the garden! Tam, Marcia and Blanche have been brilliant – we’ve felt so looked after.
Amie, Ben & family – August 2019

A very warm welcome from Tam (the owner) and Marcia who could not have been more helpful. The tranquillity of this rustic hideaway is only broken on by the chirping cicadas.
J & S – June 2019



What a blissful hideaway! So quiet, so private, so blissful! Everything we needed and wanted in a week’s break. Thank you, Marcia, for just being the best. We hope to come back. From beginning to end – perfect.
M & J – June 2019

I have so enjoyed this idyllic place. So, serene, so special, it’s sublime! I’ve just booked to return for another week this summer.
Shelagh – May 2019

Our choice of Greek properties is as diverse as the islands themselves, ranging from simple seaside charm to genuine luxury and style. Much of our portfolio is privately owned, and price alone is therefore not a universal guide. We contract all our accommodation in person, and each property has its individual appeal. To help you make the right choice based on your own priorities, we have devised a simple grading guide to be considered in conjunction with each individual property description, awarding up to a maximum of five stars for the below categories.

A trip to this idyllic location – wonderfully green, unspoilt and peaceful – is about enjoying a world which moves at a different pace. Skopelos Town is a Traditional Settlement of Outstanding Beauty and you’ll find Ottoman and Venetian influences in the island’s 300 monasteries and churches. However, from the mountains and deep pine and horse chestnut woods at the island’s heart to the tiny coves, sleepy beaches and abundant wildlife, this is truly a destination for nature lovers and the romantic at heart.
