This was our first visit to Greece in 25 years and it was well worth the wait. Sunset Apartments were a brilliant find thanks to the reviews on Trip Adviser and we weren't disappointed. OK the room we stayed in was basic, but more than adequate as all we did was sleep there. We had a lovely little patio which was private and shaded. The pool area was always immaculate and never over crowded, very relaxing and peaceful. The Taverna was brilliant, we ate there almost every evening, Vasilias is a wonderful chef and nothing was too much trouble. The food was always fresh and delicious the welcome BBQ was the fantastic. Versilias (the owner) and his family were all lovely people; always happy to help and advise. Three of us stayed, our 16 year old son came with us and really enjoyed the holiday and felt secure and safe if we left him to go out for a stroll to the beach or local shops. He really enjoyed snorkelling in the beautiful clear waters off all the beaches. Mandraki beach was our favourite, a bit of a hike through the pine forest but it was worth it. We hired a jeep for a couple of days and had a great time exploring all the forest tracks that weave all over the island, we even found the fireman on top of the hills – what a magnificent view from his hut. We visited the monastery and as a complete contrast we sat a while watching the flights landing from the taverna at the end of the runway!! So there was something for all of us. Another day we drove out towards Banana beech and along the coast road back towards Mandraki and on around the coast, spectacular views of the tiny beaches and over to the mainland. Skiathos is a beautiful town and very easy to reach by bus but Koukounaries is definitely the best location on the island. We can’t wait to go back and explore the island all over again. Thank you Versilias and everyone at Sunset including the other guests who were all so friendly, it felt like one very big happy family. It was a really wonderful holiday.
