“A lovely two week holiday”
Reviewed 15 December 2013

Our second trip to the Theodora Studios. Such a relaxing two weeks. After a bit of cloud in the first two days it then became very hot for the rest of the two weeks. We normally like to walk during holidays but we were just content to laze around the pool for most of the time. Maggie was a brilliant host - would chat quite happily to you but never imposed.

I can't recommend these studios highly enough - my favourite spot was the "Shirley Valentine" table - set slightly apart from everything else but with a fantastic view. Usually found our way there at 4 30 pm (Mythos o'clock)

The rooms are basic but kept clean, great view from the balcony. There are plenty of taverna's within a short walk. the bus stop is at the bottom of the lane for trips to Skiathos town.

A really special place to stay and we will surely return some time in the future.

Visited for the 3rd time in July & once again experienced the same, reliably good accommodation.
Lovely to meet up with people from previous years & wonderful to meet new friends who loved it as much as we did.
Don't expect "top drawer" facilities. The welcome you get counts for so much more.
Maggie as welcoming & friendly as usual. Maria & family as accommodating as ever.
Can't help but wonder if we should spread our wings & try something different?!
However, we so recommend Theodora Studios. Fabulous location, fabulous family friendly atmosphere, fabulous holiday experience.
Within easy walking distance (5 mins) is Manos supermarket to cater for all your needs. At the end of the lane is Infinity Blue, superb restaurant. Less than 15 mins walk to Kolios Beach, & amazing Taverna open this year, both during the day & until about 11 at night.
A decent 10 to 15 min walk takes you to the restaurants, beaches & bars of Agia Pareskevi.
Sadly, it is all up hill on the way home!
Theodora Studios will not disappoint.

Room Tip: Ground floor suitable for children, however, better views from 1st & 2nd floors

This was our second time here after staying for one week last year we came back for 2 weeks from 6th September. We were attending our friends wedding out in Skiathos and thought as we had enjoyed the Theodora the first time why not stay again. I absolutley love this place you will not be disappointed and Maggie who works at the pool bar is a star :-) The whole family are lovley and make you feel so welcome. The apartments are situated about a 5/10 minute walk off the main street in Kolios and are surrounded by lovley gardens and gorgeous views. If you are after a chilled place to relax and unwind then this is it ! The rooms are basic but are very clean. We had 307 this time on the top floor and the views across were gorgeous. Would thoroughly reccomend these apartements and Skiathos is a beautiful Island We didnt want to come home :-( Hope to return again in the next couple of years YAAMAS !!

We spent two weeks at the Theodora Studios this August and thoroughly enjoyed it. We'd booked a package holiday through Monarch/Cosmos and I was a bit apprehensive as it was really cheap. However the studios were great value. We had one on the ground floor with a terrace which wasn't too hot. It was large, with very high ceilings and lots of light. Extremely clean. We had three single beds but just pushed two together. The gardens are pretty and the pool area is comfortable and relaxed. There is a good book exchange.It was nice and quiet with lovely views.
A special thank you to Maggie who was very kind, friendly and welcoming. She walked down to meet us off the coach. We got engaged during and visit and our first card was from Maggie!
It is a bit of a walk from the main road but not too far but you probably wouldn't want to do it with a pram! There is a little supermarket a few minutes away. 10 mins to lots of lovely beaches. Plenty of great tavernas around and it was easy to get the bus into town. Theodora is bus stop 15.
We didn't join in any activity nights and there was no pressure to join in.
We really loved Skiathos and would definitely go back to Theodora as it was a great base, clean, comfortable, friendly and great value. A really relaxing holiday.
Tips: Get a mosquito plug as that was the only thing that seemed to work! You can pay extra for air on but you don't really need it on the ground floor.

I visited the Theodora Studios last week on recommendation from a friend. I was truly spoilt both at the accommodation and on Skiathos Island itself. The break was everything I needed, the Theodora studios are a real find, with lovely friendly staff, clean well equipped rooms, a great bar and pool area and the position on the island is perfect. I was up walking in the mountains every morning and relaxing on the nearby beach all day.. then spending the evenings eating great food chatting with friends.
If I can get a flight I will be back out this season but if not I will look forward to visiting again next year.

Our first trip to Skiathos and the wonderful Theodora Studios. We had a lovely room on the second floor which was cleaned nearly everyday of our stay. Set in lovely well kept gardens with great views from the balcony. The pool area was great and the breakfasts and bar snacks were really good value. Thanks to Maggie who is an absolute star and seems to work very long hours but nothing is too much trouble. Maria and her son Tim were very welcoming. The "post-it note" game around the bar was hilarious. Met some great friends Pam,Steve,Lynn and Dave "The Five O'clock Club!" BBQ and quiz night should not be missed. Would mention it is quite a walk from the main road if you have trouble walking. Will definitely be returning. Thanks for a great holiday.

Our 9th trip to Skiathos but our first stay at Theodora. Nice roomy studio with, of all things, a double bed!!!! Lovely and clean and in a beautiful quiet location. We were welcomed by Maggie who is a real star and a mine of information. The family who own Theodora are warm friendly people also. After 2 weeks we returned home really chilled and can,t wait to go back next year.

Room Tip: No mosquito nets on our windows meant we had to sleep with them shut. Boy it was warm.!!!! Aircon i...
