We were attending a wedding in Skiathos with our two children and their grandparents, and choose villa Olivia as the images looked exactly what we needed, and only a few km's from Skiathos town, the location was good. On arrival at the airport we met the owner Roula, who also helped us organise a car ahead of time, and having lived in London, her English was excellent. She was extremley helpful throughout the week, with the couple of things we needed. The villas situation is high up about 4 kms away from Skiathos town, and although remote, does not seem isolated, and the views are breathtaking, although a car is necessary. The villa is very modern, built and to an extremly high standard, it blends traditional craftsmanship with modern architecture. The pool was a welcome retreat in the heat, and there were many pleasant areas around the villa in which to relax. The only issue we had was a storm a week before we arrived had taken out the wifi, but Roula had organised a wifi stick for us. The daily maid service was also a touch of luxury.
We wouldn't hesitate to recommend the island or the villa.
We stayed at Olivia this August with our 2 young children and parents. Olivia 1 & 2 are everything they seem online and more. The stay got off to a great start when Roula the owner met us at the airport and showed us the way, even helping transport our luggage. Roula had been a huge help from start to finish, going out of her way to instal safety gates and get extra cots and high chairs for us. When we arrived at the villas we could not believe how amazing it was. The views were breath taking and the pool was amazing. Every room in the Villa is decorated to the highest standard and they have everything you could hope for, including a BBQ, wash room, utility room etc etc. The villas were cleaned every day by a wonderful lady who was also extremely helpful. The pool was cleaned regularly and the garden was immaculate. I could not imagine a more wonderful place to spend time on holiday, or a more helpful group of people. Amazing!
We came from Spain to stay at Olivia's 1 in the middle of June. The Villa and it's facilities were great and the views and tranquility were breathtaking. All the villa was tidy and clean and it was cleaned every day by a lovely lady as well as the pool and the garden.
Roula, the owner, was very helpful since the beginning. She came to pick us up at the airport so we could follow her with our car to the villa. She was always available to help whenever we needed. She recommended places to visit etc. Our only drawback was the wifi technical issues which was available only the first couple of days of our stay, due to the upgrade of the line in the area.
The location is not bad because its not far from skiathos town but you will need to rent a car to move around.
We really enjoyed our stay at the villa and the island in general, great weather and food and beautiful beaches. All this in company with the locals that following the Greek spirit, are great hosts and always proud to show their beautiful country.
The town of Skiathos is the only built-up area of the island. It is built on the southeastern tip of the island in a windless bay which separates the island of Bourtzi in two.
It is a relatively new settlement, built in 1829 – 1830 on the site of the ancient city, on two hills situated at the edge of the sea. The ancient settlement was built in 800 BC.
The large natural port of the modern city is ideal in shape and in location. This has been a basic element in regulating the life on the island both in the old and in the modern times.
In the modern town of Skiathos, the houses are small and simple, with two floors in their majority and built amphitheatrically one next to the other. The streets are narrow without any typical planning apart from few parts in the city.
