The infinity pool is situated just steps from the villa and is surrounded by gardens and olive groves. The Infinity effect gives a relaxing experience as the naturally colored water visually blends with the sea below. The view from inside and outside the pool is spectacular. At night, the pool is illuminated by internal lights, which along with surrounding terrace lights, offer a very romantic and peaceful atmosphere.

Skiathos offers more than 50 beaches that surround the island. All beaches have crystal clear water that is perfect for swimming and snorkelling. The most popular beaches have one or more full service restaurants just a few meters from the beach. The smaller beaches have small wood-made bars that offer drinks, and most of the time, good food.

The northern part of the island features beaches that are accessible only by boat. The most magnificent northern beach is Lalaria beach with its characteristic rock arch. Most northern beaches are pebbled ranging from green to purple colors. On windy days, the small local transport boats do not come to the northern beaches.

Skiathos town is vibrant, energetic and friendly town. It has two ports, one for passenger ferries and a second one (the old port) which accommodates the local transport boats to the beaches and surrounding islands.

It's many restaurants offer a great variety of Greek food ranging from small establishments providing Gyro and Souvlaki sandwiches to larger restaurants that offer great variety of salads, grilled meats and fish and traditional dishes. It is all very good and this is one thing visitors never forget.

There are many shops for small gifts, jewelry, art, summer clothes to accommodate everyone's budget

Skiathos offers a variety venues to enrich the visitors' experience. There are several active monasteries which welcome visitors. The largest one is Evangelistria monastery which also maintains a well appointed folk museum that contains artifacts from modern history of Greece.

The Kastro is a Byzantine era fortification where the population lived at various periods through the long history of this region. It is worth a visit, particularly during early morning or late afternoon. There is a friendly taverna at the beach below which can be reached by foot.

There are 25 well marked hiking trails that range from easy to moderate difficulty everywhere on the island. These trails offer scenic hiking amidst diverse environments that include pine forest, olive groves, rocky shores with sea views, as well as dense shrub and trees with small creeks. A well done book of all the trails written by Ortwin Widmann can be purchased in stores on the island, at the Evangelistria Monastery as well as online.

Una splendida vacanza

  • 5 of 5

Siamo 4 coppie di amici a abbiamo passato 11 giorni di plendida vacanza in questa stupenda villa con tutti i comfort possibili e immaginabili compreso la pulizia e il cambio di lenzuola ed asciugamani.

Flo (la referente sull'isola) è stata molto disponibile e simpatica nei nostri confronti e ci ha aiutato molto sia all'arrivo che alla partenza e durante il nostro soggiorno.

L'isola è stupenda per le spiagge, per la gente e per il cibo. Ritorneremo sicuramente

Super comfortable villa with fantastic views

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful villa for a relaxed stay at Skiathos. We were there with a group of 14 (8 kids). There is tons of space for everybody, good beds, and excellent facilities (including table tennis 🙂) ensuring a luxurious and stress free stay. You could stay forever in the pool and on the veranda looking at the view. You need a car, but that is necessary anyway to get to the beautiful beaches on the north side of the island. Definitely recommended!

Perfect Luxury & Stunning Views - Best Villa on Skiathos!

  • 5 of 5

We had literally a perfect week at Villa Mirovili - a large group of family members, and friends that had just married in London and were joining us for their honeymoon. We cannot say enough good things about this wonderful relaxing oasis! First, the booking experience was painless and efficient. The owners have been wonderful to deal with throughout, and everything promised was delivered, including how we wanted to pay, and return of the security deposit shortly after the stay. The communication in advance was excellent, including making the connection with Flo (housekeeper) and ensuring we were setup right from the start for a fantastic week!

Although the pictures of this place are stunning, you will still be amazed when you arrive at Villa Mirovili and first explore - it is a dream come true! So many wonderful spaces to relax and enjoy and the pool area and decks are just first class! We were quite active on Skiathos and rented a car and a quad and got around, even renting a 56' sailboat for a day - but we made sure to have 2 "pool days" at Mirovili through the week - some days you do not want to leave! IF with a larger group or family, the space works so, so well. For us, our newleyweds stayed in the lovely master suite (with its own 2 decks!!). Meal times are a joy. The kitchen is perfect. The lower level and rec room space is a real bonus to have. The house is well equipped and appointed - we simply have NO complaints or suggestions for improvement.

We will be coming back to Villa Mirovili one day for another perfect and memorable week!

A villa fit for a royal

  • 5 of 5

We came to Skiathos for a family reunion for 10 days. Villa Mirovilli exceeded all expectation. The layout of the property is perfect for 3 familie. The kids area separated from the rest of house is perfect for them as well as for adults. So is the stunning pool.

The view is undescribable - you need to see it to believe it.

Flo, our contact person for the week, is super helpful, always available and go out of her way to make you comfortable and see all needs are met.

Just 5 minutes walk up the road, a beautiful Italian restaurant with amazing views.

I will recommend this place for the queen if she asks me, wish we can go back every year.

Lovely Villa

  • 5 of 5

We were a party of two families and a couple of friends - total of 14. We had a lovely two weeks on Skiathos. The Villa suited us very well and it has everything you need. The fact that the cleaners come every three days is also a nice luxury. The downstairs apartment is great for "teens" and the top master suite is very special with excellent views. Two great restaurants within walking distance and that permanent lovely view makes the villa ideally placed, away from the "hub bub" close enough to the attractions.
