This is out 6th stay at the beautiful Villa Apollon with our ' Greek Mum & Dad ‘ so as you can imagine we love this place
I cannot praise Dounia & Captain enough, they look after you as if you are a member of their own family and as people will testify who stay year after year you become part of one big Villa Apollon family.
There are additions this year, Leon the caring and lovable Alsatian, Brutus the beautiful & Tulip of love,the adorable puppy, both British Bulldogs and are hilarious, Isias and her kittens, Amstel and Mythos the tortoises, these additions just add to the character of the place and give you many funny moments.
The views over the bay and the Island of Tsougria are truly wonderful, we have spent many happy hours, drink in hand, chatting and relaxing looking out over the bay.
The food is ‘THE BEST ‘in Skiathos, and I know that is a big statement and we have been to many wonderful restaurants in Skiathos all of which we adore but the food Captain and Dounia prepare is fresh and stunning, fresh fish cooked to order, steaks,the best chicken dish with Captains secret marinade I have ever had tasted, fresh homemade Pizza, Greek salad to die for, delicious Beef Stafaido just to name a few dishes. Nothing is too much trouble, we even asked for champagne and strawberries dipped in chocolate this year and of course it was served up with love and laughter, as always.
They are always improving the apartments with new showers and bathrooms this year.
The staff are brilliant and friendly and the rooms are cleaned every day, even put my shoes tidy in a row!
The Apollon is 5 mins away from the beach at Achaladies, and Bus Stop 9 which gives you access to the many other stunning beaches, we hire a jeep, and it really is recommended to see the other side of the Island where the wilder, quieter beaches are.
Three supermarkets are within 5 mins walk down a steep hill, but they deliver your goods so you don’t have to walk back up the hill with heavy bags
We went sailing twice this year on Evuda with George and Neil, it really is a fab day out, you stop off at three bays for swimming and snorkelling, one for 2 hours where you have lunch, the catamaran is opposite fresh bar in the New Harbour, you can book direct with them any night from 6pm onwards
We went to our favourite restaurants this year, Scuna, The Windmill, Marias Pizza, 1901, Asprolithos, all highly recommended.
We also went to Agnadio, on the road to the Monastery with fantastic views, and Amfiliki, book in advance a table at the front, you won’t regret it, and the views are lovely.
Don’t hesitate to go to Skiathos, it truly is a magical Island, and stay at the Villa Apollon it is a very special place which if you are like us it will hold a special place in your heart, it’s addictive !!
