“Wow - Unbeatable !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2009

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 !!

We've visited Skiathos 5 times before, but this was our first stay at Villa Apollon. We booked directly with the owner and their responses to our enquiries were very quick and gave us all the information we needed.
The owner, Dounia, greeted us on our arrival and showed us to our room.
The room was one of the smaller we have had in Skiathos but it was very well decorated, very clean and had all the things we needed plus much more (TV, Hair Dryer, Iron, Ironing Board, Microwave, Toaster, Kettle, Hob, Air Conditioning.)
The double bed was really comfortable and made a change from the usual two singles pushed together.
The view from the good sized balcony was excellent.
The apartments are quite close to the road so you can hear the traffic a little, but that really shouldn't put you off.
The accommodation is the most secure that we have stayed at with electric gates and a couple of lovely german shepheards and two cute bull dogs!!
The pool area is a good size and is quiet and relaxing with plenty of beds.
The pool is also big enough to get a few lengths in so you can burn off some calories from the lovely food served at the bar.
The bar stays open late and the hosts Dounia and Captain are very, very friendly and welcoming.
All in all Villa Apollon is a wonderful place to stay and I would recommend it to anyone.
Thank you for a lovely, relaxing holiday - we'll definitely be back!

This was my second visit to Villa Apollon, and everything was just as I remembered if not better. The apartments are clean, everyone is friendly and helpful, nothing is too much trouble.
The views are amazing, as soon as you open your balcony doors, you can't help but smile.
Food is lovely and Captain will cook fresh fish for you, yummy! though my other favourite was the stifado.
The island is fab and the water taxi into skiathos town is definately the way to travel. Be prepared to put on a few pounds, can't think of a better place to while away the hours, sat by the pool, in the gorgeous sunshine, book in one hand and a mythos in the other!!!! Can't wait to go back again.

Just returned from a two week break at the Villa Apollon. The accomodation was ideal from it;s perfect location, very comfortable bed and the air conditioning for those warm nights. Dounia and the Captain are perfect hosts and made us feel like family. The food is perfectly prepared, delicious and plentiful. You won't get better on the Island. This is our ninth trip to Skiathos and we feel now that we've found the perfect location. We will return next year. Thanks for everything Dounia and Captain. You're special people.

We have just returned from 10 fabulous days with Captain and Dounia - our second year there. Again everything was fantastic and we had a wonderful relaxing holiday. The hill is still a killer but the view from our room and the bar was worth every step! See you next year - Villa Apollon is like a home from home. New family members Brutus and Leon provided great amusement. Suzanne & Chris Blake
