Dreamy Greek getaway on the Mamma Mia! island of Skopelos from £699pp


Skopelos - an island so beautiful and typically greek that Phyllida Lloyd chose it for the backdrop of her smash hit film Mamma Mia! You too can enjoy this Aegean jewel, thanks to the lovely folk at Secret Escapes, who have negotiated a 28% discount on this 7-night half board beachfront package.

What's included

  • Seven nights in a Standard room with sea view
  • Half-board basis
  • Flights are included from London Gatwick to Skiathos Island Airport, Greece
  • 5kg hand luggage and 20kg hold luggage allowance per person
  • Shared airport transfers from Skiathos to Skopelos (boats and shuttle included)

Travel dates

The £699pp rate is available for travel in September 2019. Travel in May will come in at £779, with June, July and August also available but at a higher price again.

Accommodation

The Blue Green Bay hotel is nestled in the picturesque pebbly bay of Panormos on the north-western coast of the tranquil island of Skopelos. The rooms are comfortable and tastefully decorated, with en-suite bathrooms and comfy sofas or armchairs. Your Standard room has a balcony or patio where you can kick back, take in lovely sea views and watch the sun set over Blue Bay – a tiny natural harbour.

Dining

In a lovely spot shaded by pine trees, Ormos Restaurant serves up a wide range of Greek and international cuisine. Breakfast is a hearty spread to give you energy for the day ahead, with a range of cold cuts, pastries and classic Greek options like fresh yoghurt and honey. At lunch, there’s a range of sandwiches and salads on offer; then, after a tough day lounging on the beach, reward yourself with a traditional Greek dinner made from fresh island ingredients.

Interestingly, Mamma Mia! 2 wasn't filmed on Skopelos at all. The production team chose the Croatian island of Vis because of hefty tax breaks. I don't know about you, but it didn't quite have the Skopelos charm.
