Bedrooms 1
Property type apartment
Minimum Stay nights


Photos and Description of this Sporades holiday apartment

A delightful top floor apartment in a restored house in Skopelos Old Town - views across Skopelos Bay plus a charming walled courtyard garden

Come and stay in the bright and airy apartment on the top floor of “39 Steps”, a carefully restored and stylish traditional stone-built island house in the quiet heart of Skopelos Old Town.

The apartment's balcony and living room overlook the rooftops of the Old Town, with lovely views down to the harbour and across Skopelos Bay.

The house is nicknamed "39 Steps" in honour of the pretty, narrow, cobbled street on which it is situated. The House also features a charming walled courtyard garden, with a large vine providing shade and an abundance of bright, blooming flowers from early Spring to Autumn.

"39 Steps" has operated successfully for over 20 years. It has many regular visitors who return year after year.

A second apartment - The Garden Apartment - occupies the middle floor of the house. This apartment has its own terrace, under an extension of the vine, also giving views over the Old Town towards the harbour.

Each apartment has its own entrance, accessed through the shared courtyard garden. Each has its own outdoor seating area, kitchen / living room, bedroom and bathroom with shower.

Whilst enjoying the quiet charm of Skopelos' historic Old Town, 39 Steps is convenient for the many restaurants, tavernas, cafes and transport links of Skopelos harbour-front (The 'Paralia'). The harbour-front is a pleasant two minute stroll down the narrow cobbled streets of the Old Town.

The nearest beach from the Old Town is Glifoneri, 700m away.

39 Steps appeals to visitors who want to savour the quiet charm and authenticity of Skopelos Old Town, whilst having a comfortable, stylish and characterful base from which to explore this beautiful island.

About Sofia Palasini

I am Greek by birth but have lived in various countries across Europe, including for a long time in London.

I am always delighted to share my knowledge of this beautiful island and its fascinating community with my guests.

Sofia Palasini purchased this apartment in 1980

Why Sofia Palasini chose Thessaly

I fell in love with Skopelos when I first visited over 25 years ago. It is a beautiful island, of which the jewel in the crown is Skopelos Old Town, a treat of white-washed walls, vines, flowers, narrow cobbled passages, aged wooden shutters, balconies and classic stone-built townhouses.

39 Steps is in a terrific Old Town location, in the quiet heart of the maze of narrow streets where children play and authentic Skopeliti neighbours still share coffee, chatting on doorsteps into the early evening.

What makes this apartment unique

I have spent over two decades renovating and restoring 39 Steps into the light and airy, classical-but-modern accommodation it is now.

With the great location, the charming walled courtyard garden and views across rooftops to the harbour and beyond, 39 Steps appeals to visitors who want to savour the quiet charm and authenticity of Skopelos Old Town, whilst having a comfortable, stylish and characterful base from which to explore this beautiful island.



Glifoneri beach is 700m.

The pretty harbour front of Skopelos Town, with many tavernas, cafes and transport links, is a short two minute walk down through the narrow streets of the Old Town
