Great Villa With Stunning Views

5 of 5
Although the photos show the views directly from the patio, until you see them it's hard to really appreciate how stunning they really are. We booked the villa for a last minute holiday and were very happy with our choice when we arrived. The villa itself was really comfortable, each of the bedrooms has its own ensuite, so great for getting ready without getting under each others feet! The kitchen is fully equipped for those occasional evenings you may want to eat in and just relax & soak up the view. Transport from the villa is really easy as well, the bus stops just outside the villa (although be prepared for a bit of a squash during the busy hours), which takes you to both ends of the island. Alternatively you can walk down to the beach (approx 3-5mins) and take the water taxi straight to Skiathos town. Fred, who manages the property was really helpful, provided transport to and from the airport, took us to the supermarket when we arrived, and just helped us settle in quickly. Kim, the owner, was also really helpful, ensuring that we were comfortable and that everything was ok. And helping with any queries that we had. In summary: Great villa, really helpful people (thank you) and of course those fantastic views! 😄

Excellent accommodation in an excellent area!

5 of 5
Naftilos was perfect for your holiday, we stay for a long 9 days and will return. The owner Annie gave us a wonderful welcome and provided us with water on our arrival, it was very hot! She told us about the accommodation and town, should we want to arrange anything to let her know. Every interaction was positively and friendly. The room was of excellent quality, I was really impressed with the bathroom, the beds were comfortable and were changed every day with fresh sheets, the air con worked really well, the accommodation was clearly well kept and the gardens gave the accommodation that rural feel even though the we were right next to the town. The location was perfect! A perfect mix of rural Greece and the vibe of the town, a wonderful taverna was right next door which we went to a few times (again really welcoming and friend), a shop was two seconds away and the main street that went into Skiathos Town was another 2 seconds with more tavernas and shops. Skiathos town was wonderful, the ports were about 5-10 walk away, everything you could possibly want was in easy reach, food, cocktails, or even getting lost in the tiny streets was a highlight! Highly recommend Naftilos! We will be back!
