Villa 1 is set in a lovely location in the hillside not too far from Skiathos Town. Maria the owner is quite simply fantastic, a lovely lady who will do anything she can to ensure you are comfortable and have a relaxing stay. The Villa was spotlessly clean and a maid came every day to change towels etc without being obtrusive at all. The outside space to this villa is definately it's strong point and what we enjoyed so much. The infinity pool was stunning, brilliant for sitting out and enjoying the spoils of your barbeque and then taking a relaxing snooze on hammocks. All bedrooms are a good size and both bathrooms again very very clean and modern. We used to walk into Skiathos Town ..you make friends with the goats, chickens and neighbourhood dogs on the way and depending on your walking pace this takes between 15-30 mins .Taxis back to the villa are no problem either....all the drivers know Maria's villas. At the bottom of the lane there is the bus stop so whilst we personally hired a jeep it is easy to get around the island. Supermarkets , bakeries, shops are again within a 5 minute drive or a 10-15 min walk. Villa 2 which Maria also owns is next to Villa 1 so for a large group you could rent both properties and then all get together at the villa 1s large table underneath the vines. You can see out over the trees to the sea and you are surrounded by flowers, lemon, fig,olive trees and vines ...truly beautiful. Would highly recommend this villa for your stay in Skaithos.
