My wife and I have just returned from Skiathos, Greece after celebrating our son's wedding and is our first visit to the Greek Islands. We travelled with a large group of family and friends most of whom stayed at the VILLA ROSA, TROULOS. I will mention the wedding later but first the accomodation. We were greeted by Markos the owner with a large smile and a handshake and shown to our rooms.
The accomodation was very pleasing with a good sized room which included a large wardrobe with a number of hangers, 2 storage shelves,a bedside table with 2 drawers and a dressing table with a drawer so plenty of storage. The kitchen area had a small electric cooker,sink and a fridge with crockery and cutlery for two. There were table and chairs on the balcony and a welcome recent addition to the rooms is air condtioning at a cost of 40 euros for the week or 6 euros for a night.There is an en suite toilet and shower.
The swimming pool is a good size with a good number of sunbeds,tables and chairs and umbrellas around the edge of the pool. The bar was always available and reasonably priced.
The food at at Villa Rosa is divine cooked by Markos drawing on his great culinary skills. Some would say you won't get a better meal on the Island. Again the prices were very reasonable.
Markos catered for our son and his wife's wedding, the highlight of our stay, which included in excess of 30 family and friends and did a superb job with plenty of high class cooking. Markos and his family worked so hard and our thanks go out to them all and not forgetting 'George' who worked tirelessly.
Transport from Villa Rosa is not a problem. There is a bus which you can catch at the top junction of the main road at bus stop 18 or catch a taxi which are seen cruising around looking for fares but negoiate the fare before you ride. Or do what some of our group did and hire a jeep or a quad bike which allows you to go to parts of the island where cars or buses can't reach.
There are a number of lovely beaches around all easily accessible,the local beach at Troulos is a 10 minute walk from Villa Rosa. There is a supermarket just across the road.
All in all a brilliant time was had by all who stayed at Villa Rosa made more special by tha warmth and kindness from Markos and his family and all who work there.
