“Excellent accomodationand service in every way”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2013

We enjoyed a wonderful holiday in Skiathos much enhanced by the accomodation and extremely friendly and helpful service provided by Christos and all members of his staff. They were always pleased to provide any information or answer any enquiries about the local facilities. . A particular highlight was the barbecue evening which was thoroughly enjoyed by more than twenty staying guests with superb food and our introduction to traditional Greek dancing. We were extremely grateful to Christos, who drove me to Skiathos town one morning when we needed urgent medication from a pharmacy. We enjoyed the relaxing hours on the sunbeds with cool drinks and the swimming pool with accompanying shower and toilet facilities. We recommend Filia Studios to anyone looking to enjoy a holiday on Skiathos.

Having read all the positives reports prior to arriving we were sadly disappointed with our findings, and before the legion of loyal Filia supporters start banging their drums yes we know Greek accommodation its basic but having travelled to many Greek islands this has got to be the "most basic" we have come across, breakfast in the kitchen was a farce, the electric rings were next to the stainless steel sink (see photo's) & once they heated up the heat transferred to the sink making it extremely hot & dangerous, the kettle &/or toaster had to stand on the floor as there was no room, the bathroom was small & mouldy & having read Richards 196511 reviews he clearly had the same room after us which obviously wasn't checked over before his stay. The pool area was pleasant & quiet, the food around the pool was okay but not exceptional,

11-25 September 13. Pleasantly surprised to be met by Christos and Anne Marie on our arrival at Skiathos Airport and taken directly to the apartments in their own mini bus. So much more personal than the usual holiday company transfer coach. Great company with many who had been there several times before. The rooms were basic but clean and were kept so each day by very friendly staff. Air conditioning and safe were available. Our hosts and Mama Filia could not do enough to make our stay more memorable. Good food and drink was available at all times during the day. The kalimarakia is to be highly recommended!!.Evening entertainment was arranged at least three times a week. Spent many relaxing hours around the lovely clean swimming pool. Overall we would thoroughly recommend these studios.

What can I say that has not already been said? I have to agree with all the excellent reviews these apartments already have. Yes the apartments are quite basic, but they are comfortable and very clean. They are cleaned every day by the very cheerful and hard working Despina. They are equipped with everything you need for a self catering holiday. Although we tend to eat out every evening. There is plenty to do from a quiet day around the lovely pool, with its lovely flowers etc. To visiting one of the many , beautiful beaches or Skiathos town. If you want advice ask Christos,The views are amazing from the balconies. The hill ensures a peaceful location. We were never disturbed by any noise from the sports bar. The food is excellent, Filia's stifado is one of, if not the best I have ever had (all home made, even the chips). The hill is steep but a daily walk up burns a few calories and you can have a ice cold mythos from the bar to congratulate yourself climbing on it. The BBQ night is excellent, lots of food, wine , dancing and good company. While we were there Christos was able to arrange a boat trip around the for those guest who wanted to take part. It was a truly excellent and amazing day. My husband and I agreed it was the best day of our holiday. It was worth every cent and more. Chris explained he can not always arrange these trips but does when he can. You never feel pressured or obliged to join in anything. Christos and Ann-Marie are 1st rate hosts, as are all the family.Ann-Marie makes a mean Cocktail. If there is a problem let them know and they are on to it straight away. If you need any advise/information they will do their best to help you. You see them go above and beyond what they need to do to ensure people have a good holiday and problems are addressed. As many have said we are not ones for returning to the same place but there is something about these apartments and the Island that make you want to, I think Filia puts something in the food. We have already booked again for next year. These apartments make an excellent base for your holiday, the atmosphere is so relaxing and friendly.
Filia is good for the soul.

Me and my boyfriend travelled here for a week of complete relaxation as we are both in the armed forces. We chose Filia as it was recommended by my parents who had been earlier in the year! It didn't disappoint... immediately you're made to feel welcome, Anne-Marie and Christos being very approachable and they couldn't have done any more for the guests they had... a few nights they would put a minibus on to take people into town to avoid the high season buses that were extremely busy! The studios are set back in the hills with a gorgeous view of the sea, and you're talking a 15/20 minute walk to the beach, there's so many restaurants in the area within walking distance too and I haven't got a bad comment to make on any!!! We stayed for the BBQ night, held on a Monday, as my parents had said what a good night it was, a chance for the guests to get to know each other and try their hand at a bit of Greek dancing! We had such a good night, laughing and chatting with other guests and the food was gorgeous too!!!! The rooms could be described as basic but what more do you expect on a greek self catering holiday, they have everything you need and are very comfortable - cleaned every day! If there ever was an issue or you needed anything Christos and Anne-Marie would never hesitate to sort it as soon as possible, they really are the loveliest of people! Filia definitely did the job and after an amazing week in the sun there we will be returning without a doubt. Thank you for a perfect holiday :)
