“Exceptional holidays”
Reviewed 1 December 2013

Villa Driades is a unique accommodation for family holidays. The serene and picturesque location surrounded by pine trees and the beautiful beaches are very attractive for everyone who wishes to have relaxing and enjoyable vacation. The service is exceptional and we were made feel like home. Our children spend hours playing in the garden and play yard while we were savouring a refreshing drink and a traditional greek sweet offered to us by Maria. We are planning to be there again next summer and some of our friends as well.

We stayed at Driades two times (in the maisonette) and enjoyed our one and two week stays very much. Maria (the owner) couldn't be more helpful and makes sure, all needs are met - whether it is organising cars, bikes, transfer, food or simply fixing a broken window within a couple of hours. The appartments are in the middle of a forest, so it is very green and welcome change of scenery after a whole day at one of the near-by beaches. The equipment is basic, the rooms are not extremely spatious, but decorated with a lot of care to little details, including the terraces. Normally it is really quiet, except when one of the hotels near-by decide to have a party. We definitely recommend staying at Driades and would always prefer this to some touristy place elsewhere on the island.

Room Tip: We like the traditional maisonettes best (only two available)

I spend my holiday with my husband and our 4 years old son on Skiatos in Driades place.It is place in forest but on the same time just 5 minutes far from the Koukunaries beach.It is very quiet soo we were sleeping like a babies.We were staying in "old" house,without jacuzzi ,and the apartment is very charming with old doors and windows ,like English houses.Very tasty decorated with magnolia flowers on my night table.You can image that beautiful smell while you fall asleep...and smell of a pine forest....Lady came every day to clean apartment and change towels and bed-clothes every second day.Soo,very clean,beautiful and warm place to relax and spend a holiday with friends,children and family.I recommend it to all with all my heart...

Our stay at Villa Driades has been very pleasent. The place is pretty and clean, the apartments are cleaned every day. It is quiet, because it is situated a bit further from the main road. There are nice maisonettes, the garden is green and has an barbeque that can be used by the guests. The owner, Maria, is most friendly. We had a lovely week.

Very clean room in a quiet place in Koukounaries forest, 5 minutes walk to Koukounaries beach. The lady who ownes the hotel is very friendly and did her best for us to have a relaxing holiday. A minus is that there is no pool in the hotel but the owner mas made an agreement with a near by hotel so we were almost covered with it.
