The villa really is as good as the photos suggest. We had a family holiday over a three week period with various members of the family coming for one week, two weeks, or three weeks. It worked extremely well !
The villa's location is fantastic - a short drive from Skiathos town and the airport but up in the hills with a fantastic view and plenty of privacy.
Many family members walked down to the tavernas that were on the road at the bottom of the hill but you need to be "keen" to walk BACK on a hot day ! There are four or five tavernas within walking distance and a couple of small "supermarkets".
The villa itself is a lovely layout being built into the hillside to some extent. It is on three levels with each room having a terrace outside with seating. There are five different areas that can be used and in our case the children tended to use the upper balcony and some of the adults (me !) preferred the quieter lower level with a little more peace and quiet and access to cool beer in the lower kitchen area.
The owners agent of the island (Jacques) is wonderful. A friendly, helpful man that knows the island and is always happy to help - he was the icing on the cake. The housekeeper was also lovely. She cleaned spotlessly twice a week and helped us order a full family meal from a local taverna which we then laid out on the balcony table to enjoy as a full family - a memorable evening.
Perfect villa, perfect location, great weather, friendly locals, wonderful beaches, boats to hire, restaurants up in the hills, lovely owner, helpful local contacts. A wonderful holiday that was enjoyed by all.
