The villa is ideally situated for getting about in Skiathos without needing a car. A short walk takes you to the harbour where most of the bars and restaurants are situated. The beach is also within a 15 minute walk . Buses are available from the harbour which take you all over the island.
Chris met us at the airport and arranged for a people carrier to take us to the villa where he met us. He then spent time going through all the amenities of the apartment including the air conditioning and hot tub. The beds are lovely and comfortable and there is ample wardrobe space. He is very knowledgeable about the island and told us how to get to various places. When asked he also recommended a few restaurants for seafood.
The apartment is first class probably the best we have ever stayed in . Clean, well equipped and modern appliances including internet and TV , Two bathrooms , spotless cleaned every other day by Rea who also provided clean towels, sheets and bedding and bath robes which came in handy when using the hot tub.
There is a lovely sofa indoors for relaxing as well as a well equipped outdoor area with sun loungers ,a hammock, outdoor table and chairs and lovely outdoor seating area which really did give us a beautiful private area to relax in with lovely shaded areas for when the sun got too hot, A green hedge on the boundary provided privacy for our stay. Chris suggested we could use the pool at a hotel nearby which we did a couple of times.
Chris and Rea were always on hand to provide whatever we needed and even cooked us a barbecue on our last evening which was first class authentic Greek food.
I would like to express our satisfaction and amazing experiance with Chris Rea Villa. We were there this summer in August and everything was at very high level.
Thanks to Chris and Rea for the amazing service and accomodation.
Definately will come back.
It was a joy for my husband and i to stay at this lovely villa. From our dealings on the phone beforehand with the delightful owners, Christos and Ria to arriving it was obvious they want you to have the very best holiday you can have.
The Villa is beautiful, clean spacious, tastefully decorated, with everything you could possibly want and more for a special holiday.
Everything was available, toiletries in both bathrooms, towels, beach towels, robes, slippers, tea, coffee, sugar, spices,oil, citronella candle ( with a lighter!) washing up liquid, dishwasher tablets, washing powder, and much more,and even a mobile phone with their numbers on speed dial in case you needed help 24/7. Awesome.
The bedding was beautiful and was changed along with towels every two days.
The garden was stunning, just so comfortable and well looked after, and we loved the jacuzzi after a hot days walking. Just look at the pictures, everything is just as lovely as it looks on them, and we had a lovely evening with the the owners and their delightful daughter when they did a barbecue for us.
Christos picked us up at the airport and showed us round the villa and how everything works, and was always available but never intrusive.
The location is brilliant, ten to fifteen minutes walk to the main street in Skiathos, passing lots of bars, shops and restaurants on the way. There is a small supermarket very close, and a bigger one not far away. Also close to a bus stop if like us you don’t hire a car. The bus service is excellent , you can get all over the island for less than a couple of euros.
We adore Skiathos and to stay in such wonderful accommodation was the best holiday we have had on the island. We hope we can return very soon to this amazing villa .
We booked as a family of 4 Adults staying June 1- 8. Our 80 year old mum being one of the group. We had reaserched well so as not to be too far from town or on a steep area. This Villa was just superb. The photos shown on the web page are accurate the whole Villa was immaculate.
There is no pool but a lovely hot tub, our weather was really hot so sunbathing in the garden was a bit overpowering. The walk to the Megali Amos town beach took us about 15 minutes. You are close to the Town, the Villa is at the top of Evangalista Street behind the Mystery and Piscean Hotels. In 10min slow walking you are at the harbour.
You are also close to a small supermarket which is out of the Villa and turn right at the Fish shop.
If you are walking to the beach go out of Villa down small slope and walk straight ahead on to the main road 2min to bus stop4 from there. To town turn left after the Picean Hotel and you follow the road to Papadiamantis Street really easy!!
Chris the owner picked us up at the airport and same on the way back, him and his wife Rea are delightful and go out of their way to make your holiday special without being intrusive.
They provided us with a BBQ on our last night which was fabulous the meats and salads were amazing. They were great company we felt like locals!!
The Villa was cleaned every two days with fresh towels and bedding which was a lovely surprise. Beach towels are provided as well as washing up liquids and cleaning materials, toilet paper etc. So no need to buy these. In fact we felt we could have traveled lighter as there was a washing machine and dryer too....
A huge thank you Chris and Rea for your hospitality and good luck for your future.
The Villa is everything it says, the location was perfect for us with just a short stroll down to the town and a slightly longer but easy and enjoyable walk to the town beach.
The villa was spotlessly clean and so well equipped it was just really lovely.
We were collected at the airport by Chris as arranged and the given a detailed tour of the villa, we were even given a mobile to use with the owners numbers on speed dial!
We travelled with our elderly sisters and they loved the villa, it was very spacious and we made the most of the garden sitting outside every morning and evening.
Chris & Rea are so helpful and attentive it was just faultless!
Our only regret was we weren't able to make the BBQ they planned .....but next time for sure!
We have been to Skiathos several times but this was our first stay at this villa and we'll certainly go back at the first opportunity!
Thanks very much to Chris & Rea.
Great villa , great people. Would definitely go back. Chris and Rea are great hosts. Lovely spot Easy access to town.
We have just returned from a very enjoyable stay at Chris Rea Villa in Skiathos. The Villa is in a quiet part of town but is an easy walk into the centre-the accomodation is very well kept and spotlessly clean-Chris and Rea are always on hand to help and advise.
