We have just returned from Skiathos having had four glorious weeks at the Villa Apollon, Achladies. This is is our fourth return to the Villa Apollon though we have now been visiting Skiathos yearly for about 8 years and still it holds great magic for myself and my husband. Our hosts, Captain and Dounia are just lovely and will do all they can to help make your holiday successful and enjoyable - as has been said many times before - they cannot do enough for you. This year is the added bonus of breakfast being included which provides a wide choice of food to start your day and Sundays is a special day with lots of added extras. Of course what also makes the breakfast also special is being able to sit by the pool in the sunshine enjoying the wonderfuls views - takes a lot to beat. Dounia and Captain also cook evening meals and provide snacks during the day. The menu is limited but Captain does his lovely pork chops, steaks and mixed grills on the BBQ and they are delicious. There are also lovely pastas and a lovely "special" Greek salad and much, much more. If there is something else you would like that is not on the menu they will do their best to provide whatever you ask for. We would recommend fresh fish which is mouthwatering.
The atmosphere at the Villa Apollon is excellent. In four weeks we saw lots of comings and goings but everyone was very friendly and we all enjoyed each others company at various times. Some of those guests are "returnies" like us which speaks volumn about our hosts.
The accommodation is basic but very comfortable and cleaned daily with linen and towel changes several times a week. The staff are a cheery bunch and always helpful and do their utmost to provide a good job.
Villa Apollon is situated on a hill which provides the glorious views from all the apartments. There is a bus stop very close by which is convenient for trips to other resorts up and down the island and of course to Skiathos town.
The town is very pretty and has lots of tavernas and bars giving a great atmosphere day and night. We are still finding new places to explore on Skiathos even though we have been back and forth so many times now.
I could go on and on with this review but I recommend that you go to the Villa Apollon and discover lots lots more for yourself - highly recommended.
