The traditional bakery in Klima.


Klima has no shops. In the past there was the traditional bakery, run by Magdalene, where you could buy rough country bread.After she had finished baking her bread, her good customers could cook their own food in her wood oven.

Renovated house in Klima. Klima is facing south west and it seems to enjoy warmer climate than Skopelos town during the winter months. It has stunning views down to Loutraki harbour, Glossa village, the Aegean Sea and the neighbouring islands and from here one can enjoy the most  spectacular sunsets.


Most of the villagers moved to a purpose-built village named Elios and situated by the coast, close shortly after it became popular with tourists. Meanwhile the neglected houses in Klima started to be purchased by mainland Greeks or foreigners and have been imaginatively restored as holiday or permanent homes.
