A little corner of Paradise

5 of 5
I have just arrived home from paradise. The villa was absolutely incredible, tastefully equipped with everything you need on holiday. The most comfortable bed and pillows I have slept in away from home. The villa is situated on the side of a mountain so you do need a car but the view is out of this world. You gasp every time you go out onto the decked veranda where we ate breakfast, lunch and supper, lazed on the the hammock and supped on the local wines. The glistening and always clean pool provided a welcome splash from the July heat. We lazed on the strong wooden loungers, again looking out over that amazing view and spying on the sail boats coming and going from the harbour way below. We had great days exploring the island, visiting the Mamma Mia sights (do those early before the heat and crowds). We also had a great day stand up paddle boarding around a quiet secluded bay and another scuba diving ... amazing. The islanders were so friendly, most spoke good English and go out of their way to help. We found some lovely places to eat, Agnanti Restaurant in Glossa was a treat. I would recommend this property to anyone who could get out there, especially a family of four or two couples, reading the visitors book so many people keep on returning. I can't wait to go back .... please!

Amazing Villa and location

5 of 5
The Villa was immaculate and the owner was so helpful and accommodating. Nothing was too much trouble. The position is stunning and the proximity to Skiathos town was fabulous. 5 stars all round
