“Better than expected...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2013

... and that is based on high expectations based on reviews here!

The website did not do justice to the panoramic views of Skiathos afforded by the cottages. The infinity pool was a quiet area for relaxation as well as swimming.

The honesty bar in a well stocked poolside fridge reflected the trusting and friendly approach our hosts had to everyone. Apostolis and Litza went out of their way to ensure our stay was as pleasant as possible.

We can endorse rather than repeat other reviewers description of the property details.

Skiathos itself was a delightful mix of visitors and amenities and we plan to come again next year.

Garden Cottages if available!

Only had a short stay at Skiathos Garden Cottages, wish it could have been longer. Lovely cottages on the hill over looking the town of Skiathos. The cottages are very clean and well equipped. Quite private each with their own BBQ and outside space. Litsa and Apostolis the owners were very very helpful , picking up from the port as well as returning to the airport. Plus lifts down to the town and back both day and night. Great place to stay will certainly be back!!!

My partner and I have stayed at Skiathos Garden Cottages on two occasions now and have vowed to return a third time. We have stayed in Pop and Rose Cottage and both are beautifully decorated and fully equipped to very high standards. The views from the cottages are wonderful, balconies from all cottages look down upon the town and surrounding coast. The grounds of the cottages and pool are also picturesque. The owners make guests feel very welcome, they really couldn't be more friendly or helpful. Its an amazing spot, a real piece of heaven, we can't recommend it highly enough.

7-night stay in two of the properties (Rose, Pop) and I cannot fault it. Views from everywhere are outrageous.

Standard of accommodation is excellent. Each feels very private and quite often you have the wonderful pool area to yourselves, too.

Cleanliness/layout/style all to the highest levels.

Hosts could not have been more welcoming and the four-times daily pick-up/drop-off service provided is a terrific bonus. The walk to/from town is manageable (15/20 mins) but a lift is very much appreciated in the heat....

If (more likely when) returning to Skiathos I will be booking nowhere else.

Excellent value for money and highly recommended.

Overall: brilliant.

You should have no hesitation in staying here.

Just got back from an amazing 11 nights at the Skiathos Garden Cottages.

Accommodation
We stayed in the Jasmine cottage which is at the top of the hill alongside the Bluebell cottage. The cottage is lovely with amazing views over Skiathos town and beyond. The cottage is very well furnished and equipped. Be sure to use the BBQ, we had 2 BBQ's during our stay and the views of the sunset over the town are lovely. The pool area is great with plenty of loungers, amazing infinity pool and the honesty bar. The shuttle service into town and back is a great idea and Apostolis is such a great guy. The walk from the cottages to the town takes about 20 minutes and it's not a bad walk down. The walk back is pretty difficult especially in the heat! The pool is waiting for you at the top of the hill though!
Skiathos Town
The town itself is a lovely place with plenty of bars and restaurants. Our favourite place for a drink was the Slip Inn in the old harbour. The best drinks in town! Favourite restaurant is a tough one as they where all very good. The Windmill has amazing views and the food is very good. Lo & La (Italian) is also in a great location overlooking the harbour. The food again is excellent and the service is amazing. I can also recommend Ergon which is a Greek deli style restaurant, the food in here was probably the best I tasted.
Beaches
There are so many lovely beaches in Skiathos. Our favourite beach was probably Ambelakia. It's located next to Koukounaries beach (Bus Stop no 26). We got there via water taxi from Skiathos which takes about 15 mins and costs €5 each one way. The beach bar Mystique is so nice!!!! Our other favourite place was the island of Tsougria, lovely beach and again a great beach bar.

We've had some amazing holidays but this was probably our best overall holiday. The accommodation is excellent, the service you receive from Apostolis and Litsa is first class, the beaches, the bars, the restaurants, etc, etc. Just an amazing holiday and needless to say we will most certainly be back!

We also met some lovely people so a quick hello, especially to our neighbours Jen & Keith, Mark & Helen and Steve & Izzy!

Andrew & Aimee.

We stayed in the 'Pop Cottage' which is very comfortable and fully equipped with everything you need for a self catering stay. The quality of this accommodation is top notch! nicely decorated with an en-suite shower/wet room and a large balcony with amazing views across the pool area and a valley to Skiathos town all the way to Skopelos. The landscape is very rugged and there is a steep climb from the pool area to each of the cottages. The pool area is very nice with plenty of comfortable sunbeds and parasols. There is plenty of wildlife around from Cockerels to Hares and goats to dogs. The brilliant Lift service several times each day to and from town is a real lifesaver and Apostolis also arranged car hire for us so basically everything was stress free...just what we needed. All in all a real gem of a place.

Room Tip: The higher to room the more glorious the view...

We have just had a wonderful stay at this charming cottage. Comfortably furnished and spotlessly clean, it has an elevated position above lovely SkiathosTown and offers breathtaking sea views as well. Situated just outside the town, but supported by Apostolis' wonderful lift service, at this cottage we felt we truly had the best of all worlds. The pool and all facilities were perfect. Apostolis and Litsa make you feel very welcome and are always ready to help. For us, the stay here was simply ideal. We look forward to returning again next year! Liz and Steve, Camberley UK
