How do you write an objective review of somewhere you love...I shall try. So Villa Rosa apartments are classed as two star plus which I think is fair, the studios themselves are typically Greek, so everything you need but the usual basic bathrooms etc.. Nice balconies some semi shared with views either of the pool or garden area depending on which apartments you are in.
The garden view apartments are probably slightly quieter in the evenings. Air con is payable locally ( about 6 euros per night) we have never needed it but tend to go late May early June so benefit from slightly cooler temperatures.
The studios grounds are full of flowers and fruit trees and are kept very clean and pretty. The pool is good size and has very comfy sun beds, it tends to be blissfully quiet during the day. The beach at Troulos is a 10 min walk away, sun beds there are 8 euros for 2 and the beach has some nice lunch time taverna options.
Just across the road from Villa Rosa is a small supermarket so you don't have to go far for essentials. If you want to venture further you can wander down to the bus stop and head for Skiathos town or some of the other beaches for 2 euros per person. If you are lucky you may well be scooped up by a passing taxi for just a couple of euros more, although a taxi is dearer if booked or taken from rank in Skiathos town.
Villa Rosa has a wonderful taverna with really good food and a fabulous friendly atmosphere. We have made some lovely friends here, and many people return year after year, not least because of Markos' cooking. Markos is the owner of the apartments and a complete superstar and his wife Rania and brother in law George are fab too.
So if you want a welcoming atmosphere, good food, relaxing days and peaceful evenings then this could be the place for you. Have fun if you do go!
