I don't normally bother to write about my holiday when I return home but this holiday was very special. I chose the Villa Apollon because of the outstanding reports of Dounia and the Captain, the way they looked after their guests, the fantastic views and also not forgetting the food! I have to say that what I have read on trip advisor is all true and even better than we expected. I wasn't bothered about some swanky 4*/5* hotel where people were too posh to talk to you. I wanted somewhere small and friendly where we could chat to everyone and feel welcome. The Captain and Dounia certainly did that. What a lovely couple, they worked so hard to make sure that everyone was happy. The rest of the staff are brill as well and the whole place is kept immaculately clean. We met so many friends on this holiday and I think this was thanks to the friendly environment that they provided. Coming down to breakfast was like gettting up in the morning to see old friends. The Sunday morning breakfast was the best with champagne, caviar and smoked salmon. WOW! The location is really good, right next to bus stop 9. For those of you that have not been to Skiathos before the bus service runs every 15mins up and down the island from the town to Koukanaries. If you want a more leisurely trip there is a water taxi to the town just down the hill, bus and boat only costing 2/2.50e. Back to Dounia and the Captain, They will cook almost anything you want as long as you give them notice. Captains spatchcock chicken is amazing, steaks are enormous and tender and as a special treat Dounia prepared for us a lobster, amazing. I could go on so much more but all I can say is.... Thanks for a great holiday. Thanks for the memories. We will be back.!
