Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

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 wanted to share my recent experience staying at this fantastic accommodation. Right from the moment I walked in, I felt a warm and welcoming ambiance that instantly made me feel at home. It's truly a hidden gem, offering a perfect retreat that exceeded all expectations.

Traveling with a group of six, we found the accommodation spacious and intelligently designed. The owners have clearly poured their heart and soul into crafting a space that radiates style, comfort, and a genuine homely feel. The attention to detail was remarkable, with personal touches throughout that made our stay truly memorable.

The bedrooms were not only spotlessly clean but also incredibly comfortable. The regular change of fresh sheets and linens was a thoughtful touch that added to our comfort.

One of the standout features was the well-equipped kitchen. From utensils to cookware, everything we needed was at our fingertips, making meal preparation a breeze. We enjoyed leisurely breakfasts and hearty dinners, all thanks to the convenience of the kitchen.

Yet, beyond the physical aspects, it was the intangible charm that set this place apart. It was a genuine escape from the usual hustle and bustle.

I must extend my heartfelt thanks to the hosts for their warm hospitality and the evident care they've invested in curating such an exceptional space. Our stay was nothing short of extraordinary, and I'm eagerly anticipating a return for a more extended visit in the future.

For those seeking an accommodation that effortlessly combines comfort and an authentic homey feel, I wholeheartedly recommend this charming retreat.

The owner and staff are just lovely, friendly and available. The welcome was warm and nice and the owner shared all tips and knowledge on the best places on the island to go to the beach and eat. I stayed with my family for 10 days and enjoyed my stay, the place is nice and quite.
Only negative point was the abundance of mosquitos and some other insects due to the location near the woods.
The beach of Koukounaries is 10 minutes away by foot, easy to reach also with strollers.
Breakfast was not included and the near market and resort has very high prices, however the apartment has a kitchen and fridge to prepare your own meals .
I would recommend for sure!

The accommodation is located inside the fairyland of Koukounaries forest, which is protected by 2 International Environmental Organizations as I have read.
We stay in a wonderful welcoming place for rest, relaxation, daydreaming, in an oasis of calmness, ideal for a quiet and safe vacation. Nature was green all around as far as the eye could see, with rich flora and fauna. Τhe beach with its endless sand was waiting for us to build our castles.
Next to the accommodation, the very old mapped path led us as hikers to the island’s pristine Northern beaches as Elias and Mandraki.
Within the green area there are also 4 other neighboring big hotels where they host many tourists. We permitted to used their swimming pools and the tennis court constantly.
The place is very safe because many people are all the time moving in the forest during day and night, just walking or going to the nearby shops such as supermarkets and bakeries, restaurants, grill, bars, bus stop, ATM, etc.
Our rooms were very comfortable, cool and spotlessly clean with tasteful original artworks that are exactly as seen in the photos.
Τhe Wi-Fi access is very good in the rooms and at the garden areas.
Our children were playing with safety at the playground and with the garden house.
The eager and smiling staff did their best to make our stay pleasant. A welcome gift and another farewell gift accompanied our unforgettable memories!

Fantastic vacations
The rooms are fantastic, with different decoration each one….You never get bored them….
The accommodation situate in a great location for those looking for a quiet and safe vacation.
Are several beaches around, also 2 supermarkets - bakery – tobacco - souvenirs and some lovely
restaurants we enjoyed unique Greek traditional flavors.
Maria and her team are really helpful, booking taxis for my family and arranging trips out with
mini vans. The kind couple of cleaners who have been working here for several years are also a reason for us to come again and again. In fact, on the day of our departure, they uncharitably took us to the harbor by their own car to catch the boat.
We will definitely going back next summer!!!

We stay as family with 2 small children only 5 days for that the officer mrs Maria advice us where we have to go, not loosing time as in old Medieval city, at Lalaria beach, at the 2 monasteries, at the city’s museums, some good restaurants, etc.
The accomodation are extremely nice, clean, full of everything you need and decorated with many paintings and pieces of art by the international well known artist mrs Maria.
All the team were very kind with us, any moment ready to help and serve us. Our children were playing peacefully with the 3 small grandchildren of the cleaners couple. Those are working since many years in Driades because are very kind and hard working honest people…
The accomodation is in Koukounaries area, in a lovely and relaxed place in the middle of the characterised forest “Natura Park”. From there you can reach the best island beaches (our favorites are Elias, Banana, Agia Eleni).

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.

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

I’m going to be honest, the wi-fi only works in the garden NOT in the rooms, and i’m talking about all of them, It could have been better. First of all, the door to the main entrance was not the best. It was hard to open with the key, you couldn’t open it on the first try. Second of all, just so you know, the location is not so perfect being in the middle of the forest, which means that every night there are rats in the garden. I know it sounds crazy but it is true, they don’t come inside the rooms but i don’t think anyone wants to have them outside. Also, me and the other people i’ve been with found some insects in the room crawling on the wall. Now to the great aspects, the accommodation has a big garden with plenty of space for little kids to play. It’s not so far away from the koukounaries beach (10 mins maximum ), the rooms are clean (besides the insects crawling once in a while) and unfortunately these are the only great things i can say about it.

This was the second consecutive year to spend our vacation here and it will not be the last for sure. Maria's premises are perfectly located, secluded within a forest, and still within walking distance to the beautiful Koukounaries beach. Furthermore, accommodation is beautifully decorated by Maria, her passion for art is really contributing to the overall good-vibes atmosphere.
One can easily see how much love and care is put here to make visitors feel welcomed and as if staying at friend's place. The whole estate and rooms are extremely well maintained. We will be coming gladly again!

The property is in a perfect & beautiful location, private & quiet, yet only a short walk from local amenities such as a taverna, a supermarket and the beautiful Koukounaries beach, bus stop 23 is also very close by to explore this beautiful island. There is also a beautiful walk close by through some shady woods that leads to Mandraki and other beaches. Our apartment was spacious, clean, light & airy and had everything to ensure we had comfort & convenience, the property grounds were kept immaculate as was our room, the service provided by the staff was absolutely fantastic, not only were they efficient, tidy and helpful, they made us feel so at home and welcome, as did our host Maria who met us when we arrived, gave us great insight & advice about the island, she made us feel so welcome and it felt after our first meeting she was an old friend we had known for years. It was the perfect retreat for us and we so much look forward to visiting again. It is ideal for couples or families as the garden has facilities for children to enjoy and keep them occupied. I highly recommend this venue, and would score it as an 11 out of 10😀👍
