“Excellent value for money, excellent view”
Reviewed August 31, 2013

Villa Anna offers an excellent value for money opportunity to stay at a 5-minutes walking distance from the organised beach of Megali Ammos and simultaneously be only 7-minutes walking away from the crowded town centre and Papadiamanti street. The studios are quiet, clean, well-equipped with everything you need to prepare a breakfast or a meal and have breath-taking views at the sea from the sweetly decorated balkonies. Ioanna and her mother, the owners, really do everything they can to make you feel comfortable and ease your stay in Skiathos. They picked us from the ferry boat with the car, upgraded us to a maisonette from the studio we originally booked and offered important insider tipps for our stay in Skiathos (where to eat, how to move around etc.) that really made the difference for us there! We will definetely stay there again next time we visit this incredibly beautiful island.

We went to Skiathos with our two teenage boys in August 2013. During the booking process we had already been impressed with the communication skills of Ioanna, the hotel owner. Upon arrival she kindly picked us up and provided a complete brief regarding the city and the island. The hotel is conveniently located, a few minutes walking distance from the Megali Ammos beach, supermarket, free parking space and Skiathos' main street. The view from our upper floor balcony was stunning! The windows are not fully soundproof, but the owners have plans to upgrade them. Our rooms included a kitchen corner equipped with all necessary appliances, which has been very handy for preparing breakfast or an occasional dinner. Ioanna has provided plenty of restaurant recommendations and even made the reservations on our behalf. Skiathos is a wonderful destination, with dozens of lovely beaches to explore around the island, nice food and wonderful people. Highly recommended!

Dear Mr Alex and your lovely family,

Thank you for taking time to post a review on Trip Advisor and for your kind and valuable comments. It gives us great pleasure to see our guests discovering all that Skiathos island has to offer and enjoying to the fullest.

We apologize for the inconvenience caused by the road traffic; it is true that sometimes we experience such a problem, specially during the high season when you visited our place. We promise to improve the soundproofing within the upcoming summer seasons.

Once again, thank you for your preference to Skiathos and Villa Anna for your summer holidays. We are looking forward to accommodating you in the near future.

Kind Regards,
Ioanna Pothou

We were collected from the Port on arrival and driven to the Airport on departure, the owner can not do enough to assist and help. Close to the beech, town and many resturants but is on a main road which was not an issue for us (handy for the bus stop).

Firstly we were very impressed of the very professional behavior of the owner. The young Ioanna which, we believe, is the second generation that has taken over the company, has helped us a lot by giving us instructions about where to go, where to eat etc but that is not enough.

The rooms of this family company need renovation. Better bathroom equipment, towels and new beds and mattresses should be a good start. Also a TV set is not bad. During your holiday you don't want to watch TV necessarily but is a must to have one in order to keep you updated.

In any case we think that some money should be invested in order to keep the hotel "in the market". And if they do so, we would be very happy o visit Villa Anna once again and to change thoroughly our opinion!!!

First time you open the blinds the view is breathtaking, and so then for the next few days at least. The welcome and hospitality are at the unbeatable very high level, the service as well. A special thanks to Ioanna for helping us to find an alternative way to get there when our direct flight was canceled at the last moment before we should come, and for other valuable info.
We have spent two weeks there as one day, sorry to leave.
One comment about the road downstairs, it is thoroughfare and noisy somehow, but it was not boring us even overnight - maybe just a little.
The Island is amazing, worth to visit and drive all around, many-many beaches - public and private, loud and quiet, bigger and smaller, sandy, pebbly and rocky.
Plenty of sun, clear waters, greenery and well-known Greek warmth of feeling - what else do you need for a carefree rest?!

This is a place is a gem!! We stayed as a family and were welcomed at the port by Ionna who then took us to Villa Anna a short drive away. Herself and mother could not have made us feel more at ease explaining everything in the room and giving us excellent recommendations of the area. This is a short walk to the town and everything is close at hand including a nice beach and the room had a breathtaking view out to sea! The children were made to feel welcome and even borrowed a fantastic box of games to play on the balcony in the evenings! I have never before written a review but this complex is a must for anyone needing a relaxing holiday in Skiathos and I really did want to share this!

Our great hostess Ioanna picked us up at the airport and drove us to airport to!
A very warm welcome and we felt at home right away. Ioanna and her mum pampered us through the 7 day stay with ice cold watermelon and home baked cake :-)
Great location near a great beach, short walking distance to the centre of the city - simply great value for money!!!
