We have two lovely houses available to rent in the beautiful Megali Ammos Bay in Alonnisos.
The largest house – Villa Megali Ammos - is situated in an olive grove on a sloping hillside and has nearly 100 metres of sea frontage.
Built in 2001 to a very high standard, its terraced gardens and patios are full of sweet smelling jasmine, roses, scarlet hibiscus, flaming bougainvillaeas, apricot, quince, lemon and orange trees and overlook a beautiful pine-wooded bay and the dazzling town of Skopelos beyond.
The villa has three double bedrooms all with marble en-suite bathrooms.
The sea is only 30 metres from the front of the house. You can swim from the swimming platform, where we have installed a metal ladder . The dazzling white pebble beach of Megali Ammos is only a five-minute walk from the house. There are many al-fresco facilities at the villa for your enjoyment. Three outside dining areas; an outside wood burning oven with BBQ area; various terraces for cocktails; on the first floor a large shady roofed loggia area with sofa and armchairs. There is also an outdoor shower under the vine pergola in the garden.
The house is cleaned and serviced to a high standard twice weekly.
Villa Megali Ammos as well as a large sitting room has three double bedrooms all en-suite each with its separate terrace. There is a beautiful fitted Italian kitchen with white Naxos marble surfaces which is fully equipped to a very high standard. Facilities include air conditioning in all double bedrooms, washing machine, dishwasher, HiFi, DVD player and WiFi.
The second house – Villa Mikri Ammos – built in 2013,to a very high standard - is situated 40 metres up the hill behind the first house. This position gives it spectacular views of Megali Ammos bay. The house nestles among old olive trees and indigenous shrubs which supply cooling shade, and there are numerous shady paved terraces.
Villa Mikri Ammos has numerous terraces (all shaded by olive trees) and all supplying fabulous views.
Villa Mikri Ammos, although on a smaller scale. has three double bedrooms all en-suite as well as a large sitting room with open-plan, well equipped kitchen and fabulous, huge, glass sliding doors leading to the terrace. One bedroom is on the mezzanine floor.
Facilities include air conditioning in all bedrooms, washing machine, dishwasher and ipod speakers.
Both houses are for rent separately or together. Prices can be negotiated and will vary with season and number of guests.
Alonnisos has remained unspoilt partly due to not having an airport. To get there one can fly to the nearby island of Skiathos and take a ferry boat or a hydrophoil. More travel information can be found on the About Alonnisos page.
take a look around the site and and do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.
