An Oasis of Tranquility
We came seeking peace and quiet and found it in abundance.
The Kalivi is a dream!
The double bedroom benefits from a full mosquito net over the extremely comfortable double bed and the next door bathroom has a sensible shower you can move around in, rather than a cubicle.
The outside space is extensive and has a covered terrace which gives shade for nearly all of the day, as well as an established garden with hammocks hanging from citrus trees and of course the pool, which we spent a great deal of time enjoying.
The village is quaint and the bakery at the top of the track from the Kalivi is wonderful, offering a cafe as well as lovely fresh baked bread.
The local supermarket, although small, has everything you will probably need and offers the benefit of delivery by scooter to the Kalivi.
I would recommend car, quad bike or scooter hire as the bus service only runs 4 times a day from Loutraki to Skopelos Town and back and there are so many beautiful places to visit.
It's fair to say that you need to be fit and able bodied to stay here, as vehicle access is limited and the walk to and from the village is a good ten minutes over a picturesque route which although paved, is not unlike a rollercoaster in places.
We had a wonderful time in an enchanting location and we will definitely return.
thank you for your well written and appreciative review Duncan.
it is our intention to provide guests with the best possible experience of a relaxing holiday in a peaceful and beautiful location. Glad to have had you both there and welcome back anytime.
If you are looking to escape, relax and unwind then this is the place for you. The kalivi is set in beautiful gardens with a lovely pool and views that are outstanding.
We slept well and the shower was great, which is something that cannot always be said when staying away from home.
The walk into Glossa takes about 20 minutes and when you arrive dinner / glass of wine is much deserved. There are some lovely restaurants, can recommend the louki bar and the restaurant up the top of the hill.
Would recommend hiring a car to explore the island and visit some of the beaches that are not on the bus route.
Have returned home feeling like we have been away forever and wished we could have stayed away for longer .
Thanks Lucy for your review. we are very happy to hear you both such a relaxing time and thanks for helping to encourage others to do the same.
Even better than the pics.
We had such a relaxing and peaceful time here. The property had everything to make it a very comfortable and homey stay.
We loved the sunny evening terrace so much we didn't always eat out but cooked something simple and gazed out to sea. In the day we enjoyed local walks and visited beaches,a highlight was hiring a motor boat and visiting inaccessible coves,deep blue waters and going around the headland.
It was also a great pleasure walking into Glossa on the country lane for a wonderful evening meal and often music.
we are so pleased to hear you both enjoyed the place as much as we do, and thank you for your response. our intention to provide a beautiful place to stay for a relaxing holiday have paid off! Xx
We were bowled over by Kalivi Karavi - everything about it made for an extremely special holiday. The kalivi is charming, well-equipped and set in an exquisite garden with a lovely pool and phenomenal views. We appreciated being in a tucked-away, rural setting yet being able to stroll into unspoilt Glossa in ten minutes via a beautiful, quiet lane. The area is wonderfully quiet, friendly and atmospheric, exceeding all our expectations. We would wholeheartedly recommend Kalivi Karavi to anyone looking for complete relaxation in a natural setting and for an ideal base to explore this beautiful island.
Thanks Jenny. We are very happy to hear of your appreciation of the place we love most dearly. + you chose one of the most beautiful times to be there.
For us, this was the perfect holiday and Kalivi Karavi was very much a big part of that.
Initially we were met from the ferry, taken to the house and all our questions answered. What could be simpler?
Then it was getting up in the morning straight into our private pool and breakfast on the terrace overlooking the sea. We would have mid-morning coffee and supper in a lovely little town of Glossa a short walk away. Some days we hired a scooter and explored the island.
And In the evenings we had a drink on the flower filled terrace watching the sun set over the sea. Perfect!
Our week's holiday on Skopelos at this tiny Kalivi was possibly our most relaxing holiday ever. Days were spent reading in the hammock, swimming in the pool (horse flies permitting) or drinking rose on the terrace watching the sunset. When we weren't at the house we were up the track in Glossa sampling great food at the local Tavernas, out in the car visiting tiny coves and beaches or driving through pine covered hillsides or tracking down Mama Mia film locations.
Things you need to know: The house is TINY, but the outside space is big, and it's all about spending sunny days on the terrace. It's fairly basic but very well equipped with plenty of chairs, loungers, cooking equipment, binoculars and towels. We had a warm welcome from Rania, and the locals are very friendly and welcoming. The wildlife life: birds, bees and bats are everywhere - a real nature lovers paradise. The house is at the end of a rough track abt 15 minutes from Glossa's main square. In parts it is exceptionally steep, and at night utterly dark - not suitable for people with mobility issues. This is definitely a holiday location for those who want to get away from it all, for peace and quiet, nature, walking etc. Bliss!
