I have just returned from a wonderful holiday at the Villa Appollon, Skiathos, Greece . Our party of four couples of pleasantly mature years stopped at the Villa Appollon for the first time .We had previously visited Skiathos two years before and
holidayed together in a number of other Greek islands.
The welcome provided by the Captain and Dounia the owners of
Appollon was second to none . From the moment of our arrival we were treated as "family " and nothing was too much trouble for them.
The facilities are excellent , the apartments being cleaned daily
and the views from the complex are wonderful.
The bar which always seems to be open is a great gathering point and the food provided is of exceptional quality . Do be aware of the Captains steaks and chops which are truly amazing in size . They are superb as is the best Greek salad in Greece !
The complex is ideally situated providing nearby access by bus
to all the beaches on the south of the island.One of the beaches within 5 minutes walking distance also provides a regular water
taxi in to Skiathos town which is only 3 k away.
The Captain and Dounia seem to attract many people ( some of whom who were there at the same time as us) who return again and again to their wonderful complex. On our last day having travelled with XL we got caught up in the crisis . They reassured us that they would find accommodation for us for as long as we might need it and the Captain drove two of us to the Airport twice that day to get an update on the situation. We shall not forgive them for informing us that a rescue flight was coming that evening for us when we all desperately hoped to spend more time at this gem of a place !
Having travelled widely over many years I have never been moved to place any entry previously on Trip Advisor but the whole Villa Appollon experience is such an outstanding one that I feel I should share it with others .
Needless to say we will return along with countless others again
