Pyrgos CastleINTERIOR
The main door opens into the lower floor of an open-plan room which comprises the spacious living room/ kitchen area with hand-crafted wooden units and a decorative wood burning antique-style stove.

One of the first things you notice when stepping into this high-ceilinged room, are the black and white checked floor tiles and the amazing mural of winged cherubs and clouds painted on the ceiling. There is a large dining table, built-in sofa seating under the windows and several oil lamps and candelabras hanging on the walls, which add a touch from the olden days.

The octagonal shape of the building is carried through to the inside with each sea-facing side boasting a tall window with a stained glass arch at the top. To the rear of the room is a WC/shower and a stairway near the front entrance leads to the upper gallery, which is made from beams of wood and has two sleeping areas - one with a double bed and one with two single beds. Both are open to the living room underneath with a sliding door between them for privacy.

Sitting areaThe second bedroom with two single beds is in a separate stone building, tunnel shaped and with unique cave-painting style chalk drawings on the ceiling, which blend well with the rest of the castle. It is comfortably furnished and has en-suite w/c shower room and the same astonishing views of pool and sea. A back door leads out to a pleasant outdoor dining area with barbeque, sink and dining table. There is also a spacious roof terrace, accessible by stone steps on the side of the house, which offers a 180' degree sea view and lots of sun. Both buildings are equipped with air-conditioning.

SURROUNDINGS
Pyrgos House is an approximate 20 minute drive from Skopelos town, with the last 200 metres on a rough and stony dirt track that winds to the house.

The hillsides are covered with olive groves and herds of goats and the views are striking down to the nearby beach of Glysteri with its turquoise blue waters. This beach is about a 10-minute drive from the house and has a taverna at the waters' edge, which is open from mid-May to mid-September. Pyrgos house is also ideal for walkers as there are numerous small roads and trails in the surrounding hillsides. The walk to Glysteri beach takes approximately 20 minutes and about 45 minutes to town.

Pool terraceEXTERIOR
Pyrgos is a very unusual house, set on a rocky promontory jutting out into the sea on the same coast as Skopelos town. It has breathtaking views for miles up the 'wild' side of the island to the left, the mountains and monasteries to the right and a panoramic sea view straight ahead towards the neighbouring island of Alonissos and The National Marine Park of Greece. The house itself has been designed to look like a medieval castle, built out of local stone, and appears to have been guarding the nearby town for centuries. The pool is ideally situated at the edge of the property toward the sea giving it outstanding views and looking as if it 'blends' into the horizon. A set of leaping dolphins is cleverly painting into the bottom.

Both owners are local artists and their imagination is evidenced by the artistic creations scattered about the property. Near the entrance gate is a tall piece of modern art made from iron and below the house is a brick built pyramid. There are plenty of opportunity for Breathtaking viewsoutdoor dining with these stunning views and lots of room for sitting or lounging in the sun on the terrace surrounding the pool. This private spot is ideal for nature lovers who want to get away from the hectic pace of life and really feel like they've gone back in time. With the sun rising in front of the house, peeking over the mountaintops, the view is truly inspiring.

SUITABILITY
This house is a wonderful spot for one or two couples looking for a romantic escape with the added touch of fantasy and fun. It is also great for families with children who can play and use their imagination to the fullest in this distinctive house and dreamy setting.

PLEASE NOTE
*** there is no local taxi service to this house
