My Fiancee and I stayed here and had a lovely holiday. Christos and his family made us feel very welcome and are always willing to go the extra mile.

You have to pay extra for the air conditioning, but it's not too much of an addition.

The Hotel is within easy walking distance of Troulos Beach which is lovely, and a regular bus takes you to the rest of the island.

We went to Filia 13th-27th June 2012. It was our first visit to Skiathos and we booked it on the strength of the reviews on Trip. We didn't think it would live up to what we thought was hype, but it surpassed all our expectations.The rooms have every thing you need and are spotless. They are cleaned and mopped every dayand I promise you that you will never tire of the view.

The Pool area is first class and a wonderful place to relax. It never gets overcrowded. The flowers and shrubs in the garden surrounding the pool area were breathtaking when we were there and Chris's Father puts a full shift in maintaining the hundreds of pots on display.

As said by other reviewers Filia is a great cook and the food is excellent. The drinks are reasonably priced. A large Mythos beer2.5 euros. Cheaper than town prices at home. The Greek night and Sunset beach nights are most enjoyable.

I would recommend the following Resaurants. Nectar and Amvrosia, Ratatoille,Sunrise, and for that special occasion the Olive Land is brilliant. In Skiathos Town you can't go wrong there are too many to mention.
If you are the type of person who likes to distance yourself from other people, then Filia may not be for you.If on the other hand you you like to socialise and make new friends you will love it.We enjoyed every minute.It isn't like any other Hotel we've stayed at you actually feel at home and part of the family.
Chris and Anne-Marie are a lovely couple and we wish them all the best for the future.A big thank you to all the lovely people we shared a fantastic holiday with. We will be back.

I don't where to start to be honest!
Last year we only got to stay at this wonderful place because Thomas Cook / Manos overbooked us at our original hotel, and in hindsight, it was the best thing that could of ever happened to us. From the very first minute, Christos and the amazing Filia, made us feel like part of the family and all the anguish/aggravation of missing out on our original hotel was instantly forgotten.On our return we wrote a rave review and booked our two weeks for mid June this year. To our horror, three weeks before we were due to fly out, the infamous Thomas Cook / Manos overbookers did it again!! We contacted Christos and he tried to get us back in the place, but they had overbooked not only us......but other disgusted holidaymakers as well. HOW RUDE!! To cut a long story short, Christos managed to find us a place in the apartments for the last five days of our holiday and it was made even more amazing than last year by the arrival of the truly fantastic Anne-Marie. All the reviews about the BBQ nights etc, are spot on and nothing is too much bother for this wonderful couple. This place is special in many ways and god forbid any tour operator that denies us our two weeks the same time next year!!!!

Stayed at the filia studios june 2012, what can i say we had a wonderful time, Christos is a superb host and made us very welcome, we made many friends, the warmth and friendliness is second. to none. The accommodation is basic but very clean, excellent views, the food served is of a high quality by Filia. The trips arranged by Christos especially the one to olive land will always stand out in my mind. Two star apartments with 5 star hospitality., we are planning to return next year.

What a 2 weeks that was.We have had many Greek holidays and that was by far the best ever.
Christos, Anne-Marie & Filia what a team. Nothing is too much trouble for them. Filias cooking is superb the BBQ and sunset trips are unmissable (we did both twice). Chris took us & collected us to Agi Elani beach (well once his father had to take us as as Chris couldn't get out of bed.
Didn't eat out as much as we inted but Olive Land, Nector & Ambrosia and the 2 restaurants we ate at in Skiathos town were superb. Saw Kurt Russell & Goldie Hawn twice I'm sure they were stalking us.
We arrived home at 8pm by 9 Anne was looking up availabililty for next June.
Met some wonderful people who hopefully will become permanent friends fom all over the country.
Once again thank you for a fantastic holiday

I was due to go to Skiathos when XL went into liquidation, so sadly missed out almost 4 years ago. I have been waiting for a Bristol flight and when I found one this year I almost booked the same apartments in Kolios, but I read the reviews and the sound of the Filia appealed to my husband and I. I kept looking at the reviews right up to the departure date - and they were all fantastic. Needless to say they were all right. It is very friendly, very clean and we liked the location on the hill - it meant you did get some breeze and a lovely view. Plus a bit of excerise after being on the beach! We joined in the activities - something we don't normally do, and have made some great new friends, which helped to make our holiday very memorable. We were only there for a week and wanted to chill out but I do want to go back. I want to hire a quad and see some more of the island and I want to visit Skiathos town again and drink cocktails overlooking the marina. We don't normally return to the same island, yet alone the same apartments, but we will be returning to Filia. The extras - like being driven to the airport by Christos, Filia's home cooking and seeing your husband greek dancing with a cup on his head, ensure that we shall return!

Room Tip: We liked room 13 because the sun was on the balcony in the morning, so when we were getting ready in...
