Villa Athena
Ranked #3 of 56 Skiathos Town B&B and Inns
Reviewed March 31, 2013

After going to the Skiathos for 30 years and trying quite a few places which were all very nice in July 2012 we discovered Villa Athena. Blown away completely--even though we feel we are experts and know it all Peggy was Airport to meet us and had arranged a Suzuki Jeep for us via Magda of Mustang Car rentals. What a pleasure-chuck luggage in back and followed Peggy to Villa Athena.
Our studio was fantastic--Peggy has thought of everything. Views from anywhere are stunning and the peace and quite away from busy Main rd was a relief. Peggy is there for anything if you need her and is a well of information on any queries you may have.
Sundowners on balcony and then in Town or use the well stocked kitchen.
Yes--we have booked again for 2013. Visit number--does it matter? This is heaven and the people on the Island are fantastic. We have seen big changes and the Town has been cleaned up it is great--day and night..
Also nice to see animals on Island being taken better care of.

This place really feels like a home from home. Peggy the owner makes you feel welcome and offers advice on where to visit on the island. The location is great! Walking distance to the beach, restaurants and Skiathos town. The studios and outside areas are kept immaculately clean. The beds are very comfortable. Each studio has its own patio surrounded by beautiful gardens. Highly recommended!!

Villa Athena was everything I expected it to be and more! A fantastic view of the ocean, very tastefully yet simply decorated rooms. Peggy the owner is very willing to help you out with anything you might need, and gives you insider tipps on what to visit on the island! I 've been there eith my boyfriend 3 years ago and we've been there every year since then!
We have found our perfect accommodation and I would recommend it without any hesitation to everyone!

We have been travelling to Skiathos since 1995 and have been every year since, twice in most years. During this time we have stayed in many Hotels and different accomodations - that is until approx 8 years ago when we discovered Villa Athena. We have not stayed anywhere else since!
The studios are of a very high standard and the locations is simply stunning. Peggy the owner has very high standards and maintains these at all times.
Each of the 6 studios (and we have stayed in pretty much all of them now) is of a similar high standard with magnificent views of the Aegean Sea. They are surrounded by beautiful gardens full of shrubs, plants and flowers which Peggy works tirelessly on maintaining. If you visit later in the season you will find juicy Pomegranates and ripe Figs hanging from the trees - very tasty!
Each studio is very spacious with excellent comfortable beds ensuring a good nights sleep. If your Greek nightmare is the toilets (no tissue paper to be flushed) you do not have to worry here, the modern European plumbing removes the issue. The towels are big and fluffy and beach towels are provided and refreshed regularly. Every shower we use, wherever we are in the world, is always compared to the ones in Villa Athena. They rarely compare!
The location of Villa Athena is also excellent. Ideal for the beautiful beach at Megaliamos and it's tavernas and bars. Many an evening we rarely make it any further - what could be nicer than a starlit dinner right on the beach? When we are feeling more 'adventurous' it is a picturesque 10min walk up the beach into the main town with all its amenities.
Villa Athena is ideally placed to explore the whole of the Island and Peggy is always (discreetly) available to offer helpful tips and advice on what to see do or see. Or to answer any questions you may have.
We cannot recommend Villa Athena enough. Having travelled to Skiathos for many years and having met many locals, many of whom try to entice you to stay in their accomodation, none ever meets the excellent standards or simply breathtaking location offered at Villa Athena.
Can't wait to be back on that balcony with a cold glass of Rose drinkng in the view.
