Just spent a week at Filokalia as a solo traveller and felt sad to leave.
A warm welcome from Shellina started my holiday off well, I was shown to my room (15) up a small slope which was clean, comfortable and well maintained and I had a nice little balcony area which I used every evening to relax.
I slept like a log for a whole week. The pool and bar were great and very inviting helped by the other friendly holiday makers encouraging me to pop in every night for a drink. Shellina is worth her weight in gold serving drinks and great food during the day, what surprised me was that she knew everyones names and was so friendly. In the evening Alkis is and his infectious smile was behind the bar making it a nice way to finish off the day. There is free WiFi in the bar area.
Its a ten minute walk to the beach which is lovely with some great tavernas, paradise being my favourite or you can get the water taxi to town for 2.50 euro which takes 15 minutes. Or the bus at stop 10 which is 1.60 euro.
There is a bakery on the main road towards the beach with some fabulous cakes at great prices..
Skiathos town is a great day out for walking, shopping, eating or simply sitting with a coffee with a lovely little harbour watching the boats or planes coming into land.
As a lone female I found the island very safe at anytime of the day and will definitely be back for a third trip thanks to the guys at filokalia x
