We visited Skiathos in June 2015 and had the most amazing time. We stayed as a family of 8 including one child under the age of 2. It was beautiful - that being the villas, the view and the island. It was my first time in Skiathos and I would not hesitate to return, but only if to one of three of the Aries Villas as they made our stay what it was. The villas are all immaculate and beautifully decorated, interior designers have designed each villa and the themes flow perfectly throughout. The double balcony from two bedrooms was fantastic and we sat out there of an evening while getting ready to go out, over looking the beautiful views. The kitchen had all the necessary equipment to cook for yourselves and we did so at least once a day. The fresh herbs growing in the garden was a great idea and I used the mint in my mojito :) We also made great use of the BBQ which was fantastic and enabled us to have a lovely evening in the villa to have a few drinks and enjoy great food together, we invited Evan to join us as he had been such a great host and even took us to he local butchers to buy fresh meat. John and his son Evan were fantastic hosts and could do no more to make your trip perfect. They will take you wherever you want to go and can recommend lovely restaurants and beaches which made our trip even better especially being able to try great traditional Greek food. The villas were always kept immaculate by the two ladies (sorry I forgot their names) and the pool cleaned regularly with the robot which we were all amazed with! The baby had a fantastic time being able to run around on the grass without being worried of falling. Also John and Evan even bought a high chair and cot for our arrival to accommodate our needs. The breakfast was fantastic also and the ladies were more than willing to try new food ideas to accommodate my fussy taste (poached eggs instead of fried). Great selection of options at breakfast; cereals, toast, cheese and meat selection, fresh chopped fruit, eggs, bacon & sausages etc. lovely welcome when we arrived with a bottle of champagne and a large selection of fruit. Have no negatives to say as it was perfect and I wouldn't hesitate to return or recommend to any of my friends or family. John took us to and treated us to an amazing meal on the seafront which was beautiful. Also Jack the dog was so lovely and also made my trip more enjoyable as I love pets, though there was no worries if you don't as he had his own area to play in. There was plenty of room and even more space for if there were more of us in the party. Thanks again for all your help in making our holiday so fantastic!! AB
Aries Villas was an absolutely fantastic stay. Clean comfortable and felt like a home.
Interior design is done to top quality and very luxurious. Everything is brand new and very good quality. The owners have gone all out making the villas look and feel fantastic. They are very much top end of the market.
I stayed here with my family (6) and we each had our own room, with air conditioning. Master, a large double, a single and bathroom on the 1st floor (with great views). Ground floor is open plan which is nice large - kitchen/living/dining area and a toilet. Lower ground floor consists of another small kitchen/dining room, Single bedroom, double bedroom and bathroom. The living room spans out onto the patio and large garden which is great for kids and games in the evenings. The garden is very well maintained. Pool is freshwater and there is a hot breakfast every morning which is fantastic.
John and Evan (father/son) who run the villas are very friendly and helpful, they know all the best beaches and restaurants whichever style you fancy, they will also drive you anywhere you want to go! On our second last night, we had a BBQ with the other families in the villas which John & Evan organised, it was lovely to eat traditional Greek food and dance to the music!
Definitely would go back, we are confident that another family would fit comfortably into the villa, as six of us we had so much room! Fully recommend.
