Holidays to Skopelos – the “Mamma Mia” island
Skopelos is the largest and greenest in the Sporades with lush pine-covered mountains sweeping down to sheltered beaches and coves.
It is simply beautiful and traditionally Greek, one of the reasons why it was chosen as a location for the movie ‘Mamma Mia’.
Just a short trip (45 mins) by hydrofoil from Skiathos brings you to the main town and harbour of Skopelos. Seven white churches and white Pelion slate roofed houses, cascade down the hillside from the ruins of the Venetian castle above. The old town is a maze of quaint, cobbled streets and steps, with virtually a church on every corner – there are 125 in the town alone.
The bustling harbour front is very cosmopolitan with cafes, bars and tavernas and a large selection of restaurants invite you to taste the traditional cuisine and local fish and produce.
Just 400m from the bustling harbour side of Skopelos Town, the Hotel Rigas is a hidden gem. Offering total relaxation, the recently renovated hotel offers rooms, studios, apartments and suites spread between two buildings. The renovation strikes a harmonious balance between the natural feel of the island combined with Greek traditions and modern facilities.
