Reviewed June 11, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

Had a lovely relaxing week at Villa Rigas. Sally took us to and from airport and taxied us wherever we wanted to go, couldn't have been more welcome. Beautiful part of skiathos so unspoilt but when you did want the shopping and sights a lovely water taxi to town. The tavernas were cheaper do to so much competition. A wide selection of shops and for the keen shopper good prices can be found. The villa had everything we needed only one small comment that the shrubs could be cut back a bit on patio so we could have enjoyed the view more. Gardens are beautiful with the added bonus of Geoffrey the peacock and mange the cat who breakfasted with us. Lovely time we will definitely return.

“Great cottage set in lovely gardens”
Reviewed May 14, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Villa Rigas is a terrific cottage in a wonderful location. It has everything you need and the bedroom upstairs is huge. Because of its elevated position, it has fantastic views from the terrace James is a great host: very friendly, helpful and accommodating. The complementary wine, milk, jam, coffee and tea were greatly appreciated. I would highly recommend this property.

“excellent villa”
Reviewed October 2, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

we had a fabulous week at Villa Rigas,
the location offers wonderful panoramic views across the peninsula towards the coast,
it's equipped with everything you could possibly require for an enjoyable stay,
and furnished to high standard, extremely well maintained, cared for and clean.
even generously providing a well stocked welcome package for our enjoyment,
we would recommend to anyone who desires an accommodation in Skiathos
Ideally located for good walks around the peninsula and close enough to some excellent taverna's
The owner was friendly and hospitable, we will definitely stay here again when we return to the
beautiful island of Skiathos

“Fondly remembered”
Reviewed July 14, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

From the moment we arrived Greece captured us as it usually does, but this time we were met by Salli, with her beautiful smile and big welcome. She met us at the airport where we arrived having waited for two hours as our flight was late, 'no problem' she said, she took me shopping to the local supermarket, interpreting for me along the way ' no problem' she said, she picked us up after we had been out for a meal at the local restaurant ' no problem ' she said, she took us to the airport to pick up our hire car ' no problem' she said, and actually nothing seemed to be too much trouble for Salli, a fantastic host who along with James deserve the success they so onviously have with their beautiful little house or Spetaki as they call it. Set on the hill overlooking the bay it's a perfect location for a very laid back relaxing holiday. The villa has all the amenities you could ask for with one of the most beautiful holiday bedrooms we have ever stayed in, the views were spectacular. If there was one thing that I would add to make our stay even more perfect it would have been a small pool to cool off in the very hot afternoon sun. That's it everything else perfect, loved meeting Hank the new addition to the family he is simply gorgeous!!

“Beyond our expectations”
Reviewed June 17, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

I cannot really express in a review how much me and my friend enjoyed staying at Villa Rigas, and Skiathos in general. James the owner was in the UK for work and we were left in the wonderful hands of his mum Salli. Salli picked us up from the airport and took us back at the end of our holiday, and was beyond helpful and friendly throughout our trip. Her villa was next to ours so she was always close by if we needed anything but the way the villas are set back Villa Rigas is really private. Having Wi-Fi was fantastic and the villa itself was so perfect, air con in the bedroom and 2 big double wardrobes, perfect for girls on holiday! The Veranda was a lovely space overlooking the sea, sipping wine and listening to the waves....it was pure heaven. The villa is a 10 min walk from Kanipitsa beach, where you can get the water taxi over to the main town. We did not need to hire a car which was perfect. It's been a week since we were there and we have the holiday blues big time, we miss Salli and Jeffrey the peacock! I am already twisting the husbands arm to take me back next year, and we won't stay anywhere else but Villa Rigas. Cannot recommend enough!
