Villa Maria
Reviewed August 20, 2013

We have stayed for the first time at Villa Maria in Troulos this year and would highly recommend to anyone to stay here. FRiendly owners and exceptionally clean apartments set in a peaceful location and a definite must to anyone coming to the island. There are lots of restaurants close by that are really good Salt and Pepper fantastic along with Ratatouille Villa Rosa etc everyone had there favourite. Plenty beaches to go to and boats trips to Skopolos where Mama Mia was filmed along side Skiathos harbour makes watching the movie a little more special as you recognise the places you been to and seen.

Room Tip: All rooms are the same doesn't matter where you are

Quiet, family ran small villa with a lovely pool and poolside snack bar serving lite bites, beers, wine and soft drinks/icecreams. This is without doubt the cleanest accommodation I have ever stayed in anywhere in Greece, immaculately kept, the family that run it are lovely and nearly everyone here has been here before and purposely come back - one lady 7 times and I can see why! Angela, Niko and all the family really look after you. This is a peaceful place not noisy at all and would be my first choice when I come back to Greece in a couple of years time!

Room Tip: Top floor rooms have lovely view over the resort.

We have just returned from a 2 week holiday with our 4 children and stayed at Villa Maria in Troulos. This was our first visit to Skiathos and will not be our last ! We would definitely return to Villa Maria. The location is brilliant, it is situated in a quiet peaceful location ,but near to all the tavernas and about a 10 minute walk to the beach . The apartments are spotless and cleaned every day by Christine who had the daily task of cleaning up after our 3 teenagers !! The pool area and snack bar is lovely and very quiet . However what really makes these apartments so special is the family that own and run them. They are so friendly and really do make the holiday special ! We have a great family holiday and would recommend Villa Maria to all. We can see why people return year after year !!

Our 3rd visit to these apartments, very quiet but you can catch the bus or taxi (usually 5€) which is more than the bus but you are in the town in a flash, if there are other people at the bus stop you tend to share the taxi, the pool was open but the 'snack shack' wasn't due to being late in the season, but not a problem for us. Room very clean and cleaned every day, really can't fault a thing. It's a walk to the beach but only a stroll, it's along the road so you need to keep your wit's about you, but it's not that bad, beach ok and shallow water, good for snorkelling or just laying on the sun bed, soaking up the rays, they have wifi as do many of the bars so no problem keeping up with folks back home. I would recommend Skiathos for couples who like quiet holidays. Well, we love it going back this year !!!

Room Tip: They are all good rooms with wifi available

Stayed at Villa Maria 9th – 23rd July 2013. This was our 5th visit to Troulos and our first visit to Villa Maria, we will definitely be returning, this accommodation is the best we have stayed at in Troulos. Excellent location, nice & quiet but if you want hustle and bustle there is a frequent bus service into Skiathos Town, which is an experience! We stayed in Room 8, very clean, spotless, and had everything we needed. The sheets and towels were changed 4 times in the 2 weeks we were there. Unfortunately you are only provided with 1 roll of toilet paper in the bathroom when you arrive, after that you are expected to provide your own.

We hired a jeep for 7 days from Auto Europe Car Rental at a cost of 270€. I would advise others if you want to hire a car to avoid this company as our experience wasn’t a good one, tried to overcharge us, had 2 illegal tyres, 1 bald and 1 tyre with 2 long cracks in it – both illegal. They changed the tyres and returned to jeep to us the following morning. The jeep was taken from us on the Friday night, even though we had paid till 8am the following morning, we complained, shouted at, and was told that if the key was under the floor mat as far as they were concerned we no longer wanted the jeep (apparently it’s in the contract, in Greek!). They're attitude stinks.

There are some fantastic beaches, and lots of restaurants, our favourites in Troulos are Vareli’s, Kavali, Salt & Pepper and Ratatouille. Asprolithos Taverna in Skiathos Town is fantastic, we went on our last night but wish we had found it earlier on in our holiday.

A must is a visit to the Open Air Cinema on the main street in Skiathos Town, 8€ each, the atmosphere is fantastic, we saw Hangover 3, Mamma Mia is on every other night.

We went on one trip, a boat trip to Skopolos to the Mamma Mia movie locations. We booked it direct with one of the boats in the old port for 20€ each, the same trip with Thomson is £42 each.

We had a fantastic holiday and will definitely be returning next year, the island is magical and draws people back year after year.

Room Tip: Rooms on 1st and 2nd floors are the best

The owners are very friendly and helpful. The housekeeper Christine, keeps the place spotless and although a ten minute walk to the beach, we found the location good as we enjoyed the walk. It was quite,but can`t comment on this during school holiday period.

If it's dirty it gets cleaned....if it's broken it gets fixed....if somebody needs help they get it. If you have been to Greece before you will understand that sometimes this is not the case.

Towels and sheets fresh and clean and folded into shapes which is a nice touch.

We kept ourselves to ourselves and this was great....no oversell by the rep as they tend to target the newbies for excursions.

Excellent but after eight years we had milked the teats of Skiathis until they bled so time for something new...

Room Tip: Pick a high apartment for the wifi.
