Sense the colors and aromas of Skopelos
Skopelos is a distinctive place. It is one of the greenest islands in the Aegean and, for the most part, Skopelos is covered by a primeval pine forest. Apart from the green landscapes and the turquoise beaches that perfectly blend shades of blue and green, this fertile land has been appreciated since antiquity for the excellent quality of its agricultural products.
We try to capture this richness of our nature in Skopelos Holidays Hotel & Spa. Thus, we created a garden of organic herbs and spices. This colorful and redolent space includes basil, rosemary, marjoram, oregano, thyme, mint, and lemon verbena. Also, reviving the tradition of the old mansions of Skopelos, we created a small vegetable garden and started growing our own vegetables this year.
Our organic vegetable garden includes tomatoes, zucchini, peppers, and other summer vegetables, along with marigold and aromatic basil. We hope to have our first harvest this summer. These organic vegetables are the ideal basis for the traditional recipes of Skopelos. Depending on the volume of our picking, we will gradually include our organic vegetables in the breakfast buffet. Look for the organic labels and enjoy the pure flavors that the land of Skopelos generously offers.
For the protection of our garden, it is open at certain hours of the day. Ask our reception about the time you can visit it and, if you wish, you may be able to participate in watering, caring, and harvesting together with our gardener.
