About the property

Spacious Rental Villa for 6, Tasteful Interior, 2 Views, Pool, Skiathos, Greece

Charming Villa Maestrali is situated on an idyllic hillside of the exclusive Kalamaki Peninsula, on its own large, private property planted with oleander, flowers, pine and olive trees. Just a two minute drive or ten minute stroll down the hill will take you to famous Vromolimnos Beach, loved for its shady pine trees, its fine golden sand and blue crystal clear water. Enjoy a delicious lunch in the taverna right on the water.

Villa Maestrali's most striking feature are its two terraces, facing the sun-rise and sun-down respectively.

Both have new tasteful garden furniture, when put together, provide seating for 10 people, if you should have a party.

There are 3 twin bedrooms, all air-conditioned and with terrace views, and 2 shower bathrooms/WC.

The fitted open-plan kitchen with marble work-tops is very well-equipped and has a dining area for 6. The latest addition are the sandwich maker for delicious quick snacks and the mixer for which we recommend the famous Greek yoghurt and fresh island fruit to prepare refreshing smoothies or milk shakes.

The attractively decorated, large living-room has 3 french doors opening on to the even larger terrace with ample shade and space for relaxing, enjoying meals and the amazing view over the bay of Kolios.

The private swimming pool (6 x 10 meters) has walk-in marble steps, lights up at night and offers a spectacular view over the bay. Relax here and enjoy the beautiful sunsets.

Villa Maestrali provides two cooler bags, if you would like to a pick-nick on the beach.

Complimentary Carafe of Wine: For your first evening (or any evening of your choice), we will gladly reserve a table for you at 'Taverna Stathis-Lia', our favorite taverna,with a complimentary carafe of wine from Villa Maestrali.

It is just 2 minutes by car down the private road to the main road. The food is excellent home made fresh cuisine and the service is very friendly. Lia's is situated in a beautiful garden with old olive trees and an abundance of colorful flowers, with tables outside and in.

We also offer free transfer (free shuttle there and back), to the Mandraki Hotel Restaurant, 'Elias' (www.mandraki-skiathos.gr), which is excellent, in Koukounaries, if you would like a night out without having to worry about driving. Here you can enjoy delicious high-end cuisine, friendly and attentive service and the tasteful, colorful and very hip setting of this boutique hotel.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Elisabeth,

The new terrace is particularly nice - we've really enjoyed the flowers.

Catherine as always doesn't want to leave and thinks 3 weeks would not be enough. We all so enjoy it here and appreciate the thought and the work you both put into the place.

We're already looking forward to next year. Let's catch up in August.

Best wishes

With its lush vegetation, Skiathos Island is the greenest of the Northern Sporades Islands, offering over 60 beaches, famous for their fine golden sand and crystal clear blue water.

Villa Maestrali is located on the exclusive Kalamaki Peninsula, just 600 meters away from Vromolimnos Beach.

Skiathos town, which is 7 km from the villa, has many cafés and tavernas, some on the water front, others in the lively maze of its back streets, filled with bright colored bougainvilleas, climbing up the white-washed walls of the typical greek houses.

A great variety of shops offer everything from local produce to refined jewelry, fashionable shoes and clothing.

Be sure to stop for a coffee or snack on the Bourtzi peninsula dividing the old and new harbours. This unique pine-covered spot was once a fortress designed to repell invaders. In the 20's the old building became the local school and is now the seat of the cultural center, with open-air musical and theatre performances shown in the summer. The outside café offers a fantastic view on the port and has steps leading down to the water for a cooling dip.

The buzzing night-life is enhanced by the many trendy discos and clubs along the waterfront of the old ship yards.

For boat lovers: there is charter day-sailing and boat tours around the island. You can visit the Marine Park on neighboring Alonissos Island which protects monk seals and two different kinds of dolphins or go on the 'Mama Mia' tour to Skopelos island with the chapel location of the wedding scene in the film.

Besides visiting the lovely islands of Alonissos and Skopelos, Skiathos also offers smaller boats for rent to zip along the coast line and stop at small coves and beaches that are only reachable by boat.

Just minutes away from the old port, you can take your rental boat to the uninhabited island of Arkos, which has just a few sun beds and one small taverna with exceptionally delicious, fresh home cooking.

The Island has sports activities for all tastes, from tennis to horseback-riding and offers all water sports. For hikers, there are the famous Kastro ruins on the north coast, with its lovely taverna and somewhat wilder, less crowded beach.

In mid-town Skiathos you can watch the latest movies (in English with subtitles) in the wonderful old open-air cinema. Enjoy this special place with fresh pop-corn, other snacks and drinks, while the seagulls swoop through the sky above your head.

Another 'must-see' in town is the house in which Alexandros Papadiamantis, one of the most important Greek authors of the past century was born, lived and died.

In his novellas and stories he presents a universal picture through the microcosm of the tight-knit society of the village on the remote island of Skiathos. He has been translated into many languages.

Beautiful villa with sectacular sunset view

  • 5 of 5

We spent our holiday this June at this wonderful place and fell in love with it. The villa is located uphill but is easy to reach by car (15 min to Skiathos town). The interior is nicley decorated and contains all modern facilities you need. There are two! terraces - one (including a nice pool) overlooking the bay to the west, fom where you can enjoy the most wonderful postcard sunsets - the other terrace overlooks the east coast with the neighbour island Skopelos in the background. I can deeply recomend this place. We've alreday fixed our next stay in 2011.

Paradise found!

  • 5 of 5

We have been in Villa Maestrali in June 2009, just when the new pool had been finished and we spent a wonderfil time there! The most amazing thing is the privacy and tranquility, it so nice not to be cramped into a holiday resort.

As we were a party of 5, we spliut the costs and it turned out not to be more expensive than to take three hotel rooms. The pool is great and the views to the different bay is just gorgeous. Elisabeth the owner was vedry helpful and gave us tips and hints via email.

We highly recommend to rent a car or at least a scooter to explore the different beaches of Skiathos, Theoratically one could also use public transport, but as the property is on hill, it is no fun to carry up the shoppings by foot.

We will definitely come again.
