There are many positives to staying here. The host and staff are fabulous. It is pristine clean. Lots of space in the apartment, and the garden with a lovely children’s play area and BBQ. Really hot powerful shower. However there are some cons. The internet is almost unusable which in the light of forthcoming roaming charges, needs to be considered. The mattresses are a tad on the hard side with the addition of an out of place spring here and there. Our apartment 6 was lovely but the bathroom floor was slatted wood and played under your feet like a piano. The kitchen sink has no plug which made washing up tricky. The cooker is very low so be careful if you have young children. All in all though, this was a good place to stay. The Mandraki lets you use their pool if you buy drinks etc there.

Responded 3 Sept 2021
Dear lady... We never had any customers with your name, but, i am thinking that you represent a lovely couple with its family who stay in this room. About the internet access you mention: That period was a bit slow as in all the area the public Tele- communication company install fabric optics for better access. I have already mention this to the couple. About the kitchens sink plug, many-many times we put one but the customers by mistake throw it away. About the cookers and the mattresses we will change all of them soon, due to the renovation we will arrange. Otherwise thank you very much for your other kind words about our place..... We are looking forward to see this family again in the near future and offer them a very comfortable stay... Respectufully George Nazos

We spent our 2 weeks vacation May 19-June 4 2021 in Villa Driades – and it was the most joyful and relaxing vacation ever I can remember. A big contribution is the wonderful Villa Driades: The location is excellent (in a great pine forest, and only about 500m from a few dream beaches with cristall clear water, and only about 100m from Taverns, bus stop and a super market). The apartment was very comfortable and picturesque: Maria is an artist, and she makes lovely decorations and interior style design. It was a combination of lovely Greek style and modern interior (kitchen and bathroom). Also it is very sunny in the interior, but the terrace and balcony have a roof, so you can sit in the shaddow. The apartment is really well equipped: You find everything from hairdryer to toaster, and a laundry room with detergent. And everything is not only pretty, but also 100% clean: Cristina and Iannis, who live onsite, care for daily cleaning and that everything functions well. Maria does not only quickly respond to mails, but she is so unbelieveably kind and helpful: As we had no vehicle, but only small bicycle (and the supermarket did not yet have fresh vegetables, as we were the first guest after Corona), she brought us with her car all the fresh shopping from Skiathos town, so we did not have to carry it on the bikes. Also, she gave us lots of tipps and advice, what to visit on the island. I will for sure come back – many thanks to Maria and Georgios, Cristina and Iannis for making our vacation wonderful!

I've been on a family vacation at Skiathos Driades in 2015 and fell in love with a property. Maria kept in touch with me and I came up with idea to organize yoga retreat at the Skiathos Driades. It was one of the best moments in my life. I brought 10 Canadians & 1 Irish woman to Skiathos Driades and Maria made sure that we are all taken care of. We had property for ourselves and we did yoga 2 x per day at the property and yogis loved it. Being able to do yoga outside every day it's not something we can do in Canada! The whole property is so quiet and secluded. Accommodation was perfect for families who came together as well as for the people who wanted shared accommodation. All rooms where very clean and beautifully decorated. Every apartment had a balcony or patio so people can enjoy their morning coffees. Everyone had enough privacy. Housekeepers ensured that they don't water grass early mornings so we can do yoga and they responded extremely well to every single request that people have. What people told that they loved the most about Skiathos Driades is proximity to the beaches, convenience stores, hiking trails and bus station. Maria gave excellent explanation to all guests about island and provided maps and tips on where to eat and get discounts if you are staying at Skiathos Driades. I was thrilled how everything unfolded that we are doing another yoga retreat one in June 2020. Please visit Skiathos Driades site for more information. Thanks Maria for everything.

I cannot praise these apartments enough. The rooms are fantastic, and in a great location, close to several beaches, a supermarket and some lovely tavernas. Maria and her team are really helpful, booking taxis and arranging trips out. We are definitely going back next year. Maria and family

We had an amazing two week stay at Villa Driades. Maria met us on arrival and I must say what a fantastic host she was - giving us lots of information about Skiathos - beaches to go to/places to eat. She could not do enough for us. The maisonette that we stayed in was spotlessly clean and had everything we needed to make our stay comfortable. Perfect choice for a family holiday.

We stayed 12 days at Villa Driades and it was lovely. The maisonettes are very nice, they give you little bit of space with the children sleeping on floor above. The Villa is located (actually hidden) in the pine forest, so it is somehow isolated from the "civilization", and there is a lot of space for parking, playing or barbecuing. One of the issues are mosquitoes - a lot of them as the Villa is just near some reservation with a lake... they are very nasty and because of them we could not use the lovely garden unless we used a huge amount of insect repellent... Also the beds - at least those from the first level of the maisonettes - are a little bit too small, but you can survive... But these are minor issues, because you can walk to Koukanaries beach in ~10 min or you can take the bus and see all the beaches on the south of the island. Since we were travelling by car, we were able to easily see almost all the beaches in Skiathos, but the most we liked was the Elias beach in the north of the island - perfect for kids with shallow warm crystal clear water, and far away from the noise an chaos of the beaches in "bus" range. Mrs Maria who runs the business is very nice and helped us with a lot of info, including booking a one day yacht trip with Nireas Sailing. (I would say a must do in Skiathos) Overall the experience was very positive - we had one of our best Greece vacations ever!

We stayed at Maisonette n.1 for 3 days and Maisonette n.2 for 4 days. Both are extremely nice, full of everything you need and decorated with many paintings and pieces of art realized by the owner Maria. The n.2 is a little bit bigger and the beds are more confortable but both are a very good choice. Mrs Maria and all the team were very kind with us, ready to help us in any moments. Maria suggested us some good restaurants, the more convenient supermarket and other good info. The Villa is in Koukunaries area, in a lovely and relaxed place in the middle of the forest. From there you are closed to the best beaches of the island ( our favourites are Mandraky and Elias at the north, still quite wild and relaxed).

We are a couple with two small kids that had everything what is needed for our 2weeks stay. The houst of villa wecomed us with wine, beer and fruit and gave us tourist map and all the tips about the beaches, restaurants, supermarkets and all that we asked for. The apartment is beautiful and functional. The kicken is fully equipped, the towels and sheets has been changed every 3 days, cleaning of the room everyday and yard is very nice. Villa is hidden in the forest and in the neighbourhood is 4* hotel where we go on a swimming pool. You can use the pool for free, you just need to take some dring from the restaurant. The location is perfect because all best beaches are on west and north. We will come here again
