Asimina Studios
Reviewed December 14, 2013

We've stayed with Asimina four times , and each time the experience has been better.

Located within a 10 minute walk from Skiathos Town and set in a peaceful Greek garden.

Spotlessly clean , nothing is too much trouble for this wonderful Family .

You want Greece on an Island that is losing it's identity ..... go to Asimina :)

We've been going to Skiathos for 25 years ........ I personally recommend Asimina :)

This will be the 2nd time me and my husband have stayed with Asimina and family, my cousin and her husband have stayed there twice also. Sometime on holiday its nice to stay in a 5 star hotel and be waited on hand and foot well thats not what you get at Asimina, this accomodation is such a quaint place to stay, a place where you will feel like part of a lovely Greek family who seem to really enjoy the company of their guests. The apartments are lovely and spacious with everything you need, no aircon but a fan more than does the job (and I do feel the heat). The terrace outside yr door has a table and chairs looking onto the amazing colourful garden with an array of beautiful flowers, fruit and veg. the chickens are across from the garden and Asimina + Tassos give you plently of fresh eggs, tomatoes, peppers etc, You'll realise here that you dont always need 5* to have a great holiday, its not necessary to be waited on because Skiathos Town is on yr doorstep and there are so many fab places to eat and drink, whilst people watching. There are frequent ferries over to Skopelos and Alonissos. There is no pool at Asimina but the two adjacent accomodations allow full use of their facilities so you can use yr apartment at Asimina to do nothing but relax with no pool noise or anything... just chill! You have to go there to appreciate how addictive this place is, you wont be sorry :)

Room Tip: all the rooms open onto the garden. Never seen an insect inside the apartment once in spite of gard...

These apartments are very basic. They are reasonably well maintained with all that you need to get through a weeks' holiday. The owners Asimenia is very friendly and she presented me with some eggs from her own chickens and also a giant pomegranate from her orchard . The sound of chickens and sheep tend to start well before dawn . The rooms are all on the ground floor with shared balcony which is great if you get along with the neighbours . This is usually fine as people on holiday are usually happy and sociAble and it suited me ok though I think some people may prefer a little more privacy. The score for cleanliness is quite low as the bins were only emptied and towels changed once during my stay. If you need a small towel as well as a large on for wrapping your hair in then you'll need to being one with you. In high season the rooms will be hot but fans are available to rent , currently for 2 euros a day. There is no safety deposit box. The location I'd good. A short walk to the town and all the bars and restaurants . A point to consider is the timing of your visit. The last week of he season is early here. End of September and all the trips finish before it and bars, restaurants start to close up. The last 2 days of my stay saw torrential downpours and flooded streets. I'd advise going no later than mid September. I'd also take an umbrella and raincoat in case although you can buy them here. The oasis apartments bar just round the corner has a nice pool , a friendly welcome and serves food and drink all day. It also has free wifi. All in all it was a good week and I would return to Skiathos which is a very beautiful island. The bus service is also great . There is a clear map showing the numbers of all the stops and they shout them out when you get there so you don't miss your stop. It's only about 2 euros a trip too.

hi i stayed here on my own for 1 week my first time ever abroad and on a plane and i was realy happy their a very friendly atmosphere was made welcome by everybody being on my own idthought i would be left out but no i fitted right in like a family member asimina family were very nice wish i had stayed longer and got to know them more i will go their again i felt so relaxed and safe even walking around the town late at night their were no crime at all people could leave their bikes with keys left in, in some cases .
walking up the main street was good shops stayed open untill around 11pm good atmosphere i sat on the seats at the clock tower a few evenings just taking in the views over looking the town untill the sun set this area was also used for the opening scene in the film mamamia .
the boat trips are to die for i went on poisidon its a bit smaller but it was able to get right up to the beaches so you could just walk down the plank on to the beach i visited the chapel on the hill i called it the mamamia chapel i signed the visitor book here i would recomend this trip if your lucky their are dolphins that follow the boat i missed them this time hope to see them next time
a wonderfull time i had no complaints at all please go if your a young couple its a very romantic place to go and get married

I stayed here with my mum at the end of july for a week,we got a taxi from the airport as it is that close not worth the transfer fees the tour operator offers.We paid 8 euros not bad really..we actually walked back at the end of the holiday its not far...15min max. Being close to the airport,you would think it would be noisy but its not, yes you can hear the odd planes coming in and taking off but its not bad.
The studios are fantastic they have everything you need and are very clean.I would recommend you ask Asimina for a fan to hire as it does get very hot at night in the rooms..there is no air con.Asimina also leaves you tomatoes and eggs, we also got a huge block of feta cheese too.
Although the studios do not have a pool you can use the neighbouring hotels, i would reccomend the Oasis Hotel its less than a 5min walk from the studios.Town isnt far away at all,all in all a fab holiday, a beautiful island with plenty to do.A boat trip around the island is a must and also a visit to koukanaries beach.The bus stop is in town by the harbour, they run regularly.Beer is predominantly 3 euros anywhere you go...although more expensive along the old harbour.I will be returning to Asimina studio in the future, once you have discovered this little gem you to will want to come back again and again.

We stayed here in August 2009 and I never did a review.
It jogged my memory when I recently visited Kolios and went to say hello to Asimina and she remembered me and asked after my son.
Asimina often gives gifts from her garden such as lemons (G&T time!!), fruit and eggs.
Had a lovely week here. Brand new studios but the older ones were just as nice. Excellent bathroom, with a little lip down into the shower area.
Kitchen all new and equipped with the essentials. No kettle, so bring a travel one with.
5 minutes walk into town with all the bars, tavernas, shops and the lovely harbour.
Used the pools at the Oasis, Stellina Hotel and Tennis club, made welcome at all places.
I am looking to book again in May next year but the choice is so good here I don't know which place to pick.
Thanks Asimina, sorry I took so long to give you a well deserved thank you.

Room Tip: All on ground floor with shared terrace but no one bothers you.

Stayed here for a week in mid-May. The studios are a good size in a quiet and restful location on the edge of Skiathos Town. While close to the end of the runway this is a small airport with few flights and the noise of planes taking off was infrequent and not overly obtrusive. The studios were very clean and reasonably well equipped. The terrace is north facing so is well shaded for most of the day. There is no air-conditioning which might be a problem for some come mid-season.
I did a couple of good walks while on the island. Surprisingly for Greece there are some well maintained and way-marked footpaths. Walks are outlined in a couple of locally available books. The book by a German chap called Ortwin Widmann is the better as there are reasonable maps and the guides are referenced to the way-marking.
