“Excellent Place to Stay!”
Reviewed 21 July 2013

This was our fourth visit to Skiathos and fourth stay at Villa Melia which speaks for itself! The views from the pool area and Villa never fail to impress. The rooms and Villa in general is kept extremely clean. I would recommend giving breakfast a try - lots of fresh and homemade product such as jams, freshly squeezed orange etc.. which is great value for money. Akis and his family worked tirelessly, often going the extra mile, to make our stay as enjoyable. This includes making recommendations and reservations for restaurants and always been available to offer advice on the best places on the island to visit. We can't wait to return to Skiathos in the future and no doubt stay at Villa Melia.

Stayed at Villa Melia June 2013 for another fantastic 2 weeks, been staying with Akis and his family for the past 9 yrs, if Greek villas where an Olympic event it would be golds all the way, this unspoilt villa has all the charm , orange/lemon trees, the grounds are just a joy to look at, and kept in a1 condition , i believe one one of the best views on the great island of Skiathos, hired a quad Akis recommended some great beaches on the north side of the island, A BIG WOW,
A big thank you to Akis and his family , be back soon.

This was our second stay at Villa Melia and if anything was better than the last, which we didn't think we would be able to say.
Nothing is too much trouble for Akis and his family and they make sure your stay is relaxed, informal as private as you want it whilst always being available should you need them.
The views are spectacular and the perfect setting for an evening sundowner around the pool bar.
The rooms are spotlessly clean, the views sensational what more can we say.
We are already planning our next trip to Skiathos and there is no question as to where we will be staying, after having such great times on two occasions, we look forward to seeing Akis and his family and not forgetting Daisy the Dog.

We visited Villa Melia in June 2013 after reading good reviews. They did not do it justice. The views were magnificent, the place spotless, everyone involved was welcoming, and Akis and all the family were so generous and caring. Daisy, the dog, was so friendly too. Skiathos is a beautiful island and Villa Melia is a jewel in its crown. The hill climb is the only drawback but taxis make short work of it!

Room Tip: We had a studio which came with a kitchenette that was useful for making light snacks.

We have just returned from our 6th time in a row at Villa Melia. We have never returned anywhere for a holiday until we came here, for us it is perfection. We have never had a problem in all those years, Akis and the family (including the lovely cleaner) work hard to make our holiday memorable, their care and generosity is second to none. To wake up to that fantastic view every morning is just wonderful, we have travelled to many Greek Islands and comparing them all, Skiathos and Villa Melia is the best. I put a small photo montage on youtube a while ago, just search for “Villa Melia Skiathos” if you want to see what I am talking about.

I am very late in posting this review as we travelled to Skiathos at the end of June 2012. However, our stay at Villa Melia was absolutely superb. We had booked a ground floor studio for 2 people with a sea view and we got exactly what we asked for. The price was really reasonable (just over 400 euro's for 2 weeks including air-con. The view from the large terrace was the best we have ever had in all our travels to greece, and we have had some spectacular views in our travels. Yes you are located up a small steep hill, but the views are so worth it - truly spectacular. We had the most amazing moonlight shine on the sea for a number of nights - even better than you see at the end scene of Mamma Mia! The studio itself was very comfortable with good air-con, a good shower, comfortable beds, plenty of storage and clean towels and sheets every 2nd day. As other reviewers have mentioned, the fridge contained a lovely cold bottle of Boutari and a bottle of water. We asked for extra pillows and got them within 5 minutes! The owners, Akis and his family, cannot do enough to make your stay as pleasant as possible; they even laid on a free barbeque for all guests on our last night and it was absolutely gorgeous. it also shows the huge hospitality of these lovely people. You could purchase multiple bottles of water from the bar at supermarket prices which was a real bonus given the hill to the villa and again shows the kindness of the owners. The studio was spotless and the grounds around the Villa are really stunning - the father spends hours in the gardens making sure they are so beautiful. The pool area is absolutley stunning and was always very quiet when we used it. It is spotless and the water perfect for colling down on a hot day. There are a number of 4 legged members of the family. Daisy dog 2, who was only a puppy when we visited, but friendly and very exuberant! There are a number of friendly cats who seem to have gravitated to Villa Melia where they are fed regularly - smart cats. Some of them regualrly camped out on our terrace (not a problem for us as we are cat lovers) and basked in the sun or shade which we thoroughly enjoyed. If you are not a cat lover, or want to self cater, I would recommend you take a top floor apartment or studio but if you love cats take a ground floor studio. I know I am echoing many reviewers before, but I would not want to stay anywhere else when we return to Skiathos, which we certainly will. My idea of heaven

Room Tip: We stayed in the middle studio on the ground floor with a sea view - absolutely perfect as it has a...
