“Lovely, secluded and beautiful - idiots needn't bother”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2011

Worried all the way to Greece that this was going to be really grotty. It's not. It's an oasis of calm and loveliness. I'd worked out before I went that the other comments probably came from a moron - but they still crept into my brain on the journey over.

If you've just booked a holiday and those other remarks have made you all paranoid - don't be. I mean it is super cheap so don't expect unbound luxury...

What you get:

Small apartment cleaned everyday
Kitchen with all essentials (but not much more)
Small balcony or terrace
Nice biggish pool
Beautiful secluded garden setting
Not many other people
Nice, friendly family owners
No distance to bars and shops but no noise from them.

This holiday felt like a real treat. Skiathos is beautiful and these studios always felt like a little haven every time we came back to them.

1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2010

Basic, clean accommodation but with a number of problems:
1. The toilet stopcock was faulty so it refilled, noisily, all night.
2. The pool was frequently unavailable just when the children wanted to use it due to ‘cleaning.’
3. The landlady shouted orders at guests from the courtyard to turn lights off, etc. She might be described as a bossy old battleaxe.
4. The maid refused to wait outside the room, or do another room, while I was taking a nap, but barged in to do her clean then and there.
5. The room flooded.
6. There was no air conditioning, which should be standard nowadays.
7. The owners’ family held frequent noisy and abusive arguments, shouting at full volume across the courtyard.
8. Assuming guests didn’t speak Greek, the owners spoke of guests in, shall we say, unflattering terms, also at the top of their lungs.
9. Light bulbs in common areas, which were dark, tiled and thus slippery, mysteriously failed in twos and weren’t changed when guests requested.
10. The Olympic representative immediately sided with the owners in every matter, rather than REPRESENTING the paying customer, i.e., the guest.
11. The plumbing was not earthed sufficiently, so if you put your hand under a running tap while the cooker was on, you got a shock. Coupled with a damp floor, this could be dangerous (see point 5).
12. There was no shower curtain, so stuff in the shower room tended to get wet.

Skiathos is great. Go there, enjoy the beaches—from the exclusive, to the party, to the deserted—but don’t stay at Paschalis studios.
