About the property

Villa Panoraki: watching the sea, relaxing, reading, listening to music, hear cicadas and sea gulls, drinking wine, enjoy Greek salad. Swimming and sun bathing, sea the moon and the stars shining, get some peace. The Villa Panoraki is located on the peninsula of Kalamaki in the villas area of the Island Skiathos. The villa is comfortable and tastefully furnished. The house is surrounded by pine trees, olives and a paradise of blossoms with view of the sea, the islands and the town of Skiathos. A few steps lead you to the private bathing bay with covered terrace and deck chairs. Three terraces surrounded by pine trees and bougainvillea offer a splendid view of the Aegean. Arrival: per charter or scheduled flight over Athens or Thessaloniki to Skiathos. For any further questions please ask the owner of Villa Panoraki. She owned a tourist agency in Greece for many years and wrote the island guide for Skiathos.

Culinaric pleasures: According to the seasons the owner spoils her guests with ecological grown fruits and vegetable. With aubergines, tomatoes, zucchini, onions and olive oil from the island Skiathos many Greek meals can be cooked. Tzatziki always is a success with fresh cucumbers and garlic from the garden.

Yoga with meditation music: The owner offers her guests once a week a free possibility for Hatha-yoga-meditation, on the terrace or at the beach, depending of the weather. Breath out - breath in. Breath the flavour of flowers and pines, see the sea gulls circle above the sea. This is relaxation for body and soul. Join us, it is fun and keeps your body healthy and flexible and gives you inner silence and strength. If requested, we can get you a masseuse trained in Germany.

Music and reading fun: If requested, we are glad to provide CDs with classical music. Of course you are also welcome to bring your own CDs. For bookworms the bookshelf offers something for every taste.

I found this little piece of heaven on a website 3 yrs ago and had it down on our bucket list and it was only this April that our schedules and availability was such that we could visit...and was it worth the wait? Absolutely! The location is idyllic..we were thrilled with this little gem on the peninsula of Skiathos. Rita is truly adorable, kind thoughtful (she even left milk, homemade marmalade & bread on arrival - we landed late)and inspiring and so welcoming that we felt at home before we had even got there. But the peace, the lush greenery of flowers, fruit trees, the lapping of the sea it's a cocktail for your senses which makes you feel relaxed and we both felt was that we were born again...truly a magical place and if you want to take that deepest breath amongst all the chaos in your life this is the place..words will never do this justice just know that there is a little piece of heaven and you will have a wonderful time here.

Paradise from home

  • 5 of 5

This is mine and my husbands 2nd visit to this amazing villa having stayed here last year and been so blown away by its beauty and peacefulness. As we lead busy lives we need somewhere to escape life and recharge and This little piece of paradise ticks all our boxes. The villa, its grounds, and the amenities are perfect if you are looking to get away from it all and recharge allowing you to return home completely rested (if not a little depressed at having to leave) The private beach is perfect, and we spent every day there, relaxing in privacy with stunning surroundings. The location is perfect- it is 5 mins walk from a lovely taverna and a beach which offers all the water sports you could wish for, and where the water taxi stops every 30 minutes to take you into skiathos town (no better way to travel) If however you are like me and my husband and feel that some days you don't want to leave the villa grounds (and why would you want to leave such a paradise we struggled!) then you can order anything you want from the local supermarket and they will deliver!! Finally this review wouldn't be complete without mentioning the beautiful owner 'Rita' she is wonderful, both me and my husband have grown extremely fond of her and it would be difficult not to! She cannot do enough for you and is a delight to to talk to with her wealth of wisdom. Rita grows all her own fruit and vegetables and is more than happy to share her freshly picked produce with you, we regularly found doorstep deliveries of fresh tomatoes, cucumber, lemons, plums, and new potatoes! She is a very special lady. We have already booked to go back next year (2018) and will continue to return every year for as long as we possibly can. I cannot recommend this little piece of paradise enough - it is truly amazing!!

Perfekter Hideaway-Urlaub

  • 5 of 5

Absolut perfekt für Ruhesuchende - Gepflegtes Häuschen, wunderschöner Gemüsegarten, schöne Terassen ... Jeden Tag aufs Neue war es ein wunderschöner Weg durch den Garten die alten Steintreppen runter, wo der kleine und bezaubernde Privatstrand mit Liegen und Hängematten und glasklarem Wasser auf uns wartete. Unbedingt Schnorchelset mitnehmen!!! Wer mal in die Stadt möchte, nimmt einfach die Fähre in die Stadt, wo immer etwas los ist. Die Einheimischen sind äußerst freundlich, keine gespielte Freundlichkeit;

Der absolute Hammer ist die Vermieterin Rita, einer der unglaublichsten Menschen, die man kennenlernen kann. Mehrmals pro Woche durften wir Zuccini, Tomaten, Gurken, Kartoffeln, Himbeeren und Co aus ihrem Garten haben.

Wir kommen bestimmt wieder - es vergeht kein Tag, an dem wir nicht an diese herrlichen drei Wochen zurückdenken.

Urlaub im Garten Eden

  • 5 of 5

Seit wir vor vier Jahren zum ersten Mal hier waren, zieht es uns immer wieder hin. Wenn wir nicht da sind, haben wir Sehnsucht nach dem Ort. Das Haus liegt in einem Blumenparadies, schon vor dem Frühstück kann man durch den Garten hinunter zum Meer gehen, um am privaten kleinen Strand zu schwimmen. Man blickt auf die besiedelte Küste der Insel, befindet sich aber selbst in vollkommen ruhiger Lage. Zu Fuß fünf Minuten bis zum Kanapitsa-Strand mit Bootsverleih und Taverne (für den Abend besser reservieren), zehn Minuten bis zum Supermarkt (in der Stadt, nach dem Abzweig zum Flughafen, ist es billiger). Auch wenn man den ganzen Tag rund um die Villa Hibiscus verbringen kann, ist ein Auto zumindest für einen Teil des Urlaubs empfehlenswert. Wir wissen schon jetzt, dass wir wiederkommen werden.

Das Paradies in GR gefunden

  • 5 of 5

Zuerst mal ein Paar Worte zu unserer Gastgeberin Rita.

Diese Frau ist einfach bewundernswert, Sie ist so agil und lieb, wir bekamen aus Ihrem Garten Gemüse und Obst, nach einem gemeinsamen Abendessen in der Taverna Kanapitsa sind wir beide gemeinsam auf unserem Roller nach Hause, zur Villa gefahren.

Die Unterkunft bietet drei Terrassen, je nach dem wie die Sonne steht, benutzten wir diese (die Frühstücksterrasse ruhig mit Weitblick auf das Meer - angenehm im Schatten)

Die anderen sind nach 14.00 Uhr im Schatten zu nutzen.

Die Kücheneinrichtung ist komplett (überkomplett) eingerichtet, nach deutschem Standard.

Die eigene Badebucht -einfach genial- man legt sich auf die Liegen, wo man sich gerade wohlfühlt (Sonne-Halbschatten-Schatten)

Wir möchten uns nochmals recht herzlich bei Rita bedanken

Wolfgang und Karin aus Wetzlar

P.S. Alle Urlauber, die vor uns Ihre Bewertungen geschrieben haben, keiner hat übertrieben, es ist ein Paradies!!!
