Luxury Traditional Villa with Huge Pool and Amazing Views



Updated: 22-Oct-2016
Villa in Agios Antonios, Skiathos, Greek Islands - Peaceful Location in a Prestigious Development of 5 Privately Owned Villas 'Nine Muses'

Nine Muses Villas are regarded as being some of the most prestigious villas on the island. Polymnia is the middle villa of a complex of five built approximately 20 years ago. There is a large mature garden with mood lighting. The 5 terraces offer the perfect setting for private sunbathing and alfresco dining. Polymnia looks out across the bay to the neighbouring Sporades islands offering breathtaking views. The pool is maintained daily and is a 50 yard stroll from the villa set in it's own private grounds. A car is essential as the villa is situated quite high in the hillside. It is secluded enough to be extremely peaceful but town is only a 10 minute drive away. The villa is serviced by Dave and Ros, an English couple who have lived on the island for 7 years. All linen and towels are provided and are changed as requested. Villa Polymnia is traditional in build and character providing comfortable authentic Greek accommodation in one of the most stunning parts of Skiathos.

About the Owner

I first visited Skiathos about 20 years ago on the advice of a friend. I fell in love with the Island the first day I was there and purchased Villa Polymnia one year later.

It was the best decision of my life!

Skiathos is where I intend to retire, when the time is right!. In the meantime I would love you and your friends and family to experience the magic that is Skiathos and in particular the relaxing and homely atmosphere that awaits you at Villa Polymnia.

I live a very hectic and pressured life in the UK and this is the only place in the world where I switch off instantly.

Guestbook comments from the owner

1/ Maurizio and family July 2010. We stayed at the villa for 2 weeks and enjoyed every single minute. The views simply breathtaking. Spacious bright and convenient and the luxury of the swimming pool makes it even more desirable. We will undoubtably return to Villa Polymnia.

2/ David and Deborah July 2010. The villa is very conveniently situated halfway down the Island. It is private and tranquil. The views are amazing and it's well equipped and comfortable with lots of terraces to relax on. The pool is quiet, clean and well kept.

3/ Victoria and family July 2012. We loved the Villa & had the most lovely holiday - thank you! Infact, we would very much like to pencil in for the same fortnight next year. Dave and Ros were great, although we didn't need to call on them.

We love Skiathos and this was our 8th visit and the best house so far.

4/ Gavin and family. Aug 2012 Villa is great, clean, well equipped, great views and position. Have you availability for spring 2013.

Five enjoyable holidays

  • 5 of 5

We have spent a fortnight at Villa Polymnia for five consecutive summers. We thought it was great the first time that we stayed and each year, with the improvements made, it just gets better.

The outdoor spaces are wonderful, the views spectacular and the villa is fully equipped for a family holiday.

You do need a car and confidence in your driving skills.

Peaceful location with amazing views!

  • 5 of 5

Just had an absolutely fabulous week at Villa Polymnia with my family, enjoyed every minute...did not want to come home!

The villa is great, everything you could want and it was spotlessly clean. Plenty of towels and linen and a really well equipped kitchen. Dave and Roz who look after the villa where very helpful and on hand if we needed anything.

One of my favourite things about Villa Polymnia is the amount of outdoor space. There is so much it's quite simply brilliant! Whether you want sun, shade, sit at a table or lay on my favourite day bed everything is catered for.

The pool was wonderful, warm and a most welcome way to cool off from the heat of the sun.

Skiathos town is beautiful with so many restaurants to choose from, enjoyed cocktails in the old port watching the sun go down fabulous shopping too and plenty of supermarkets to stock up on supplies.

The sea is crystal clear and there are plenty of boat trips to go on around the islands.

The owner arranged for a jeep for us, a car is essential for getting around the island and into town each evening.

I can't fault it, would go back in a heart beat....in fact I wished I stayed there!

Wonderful Location

  • 5 of 5

We (two 40 something adults) have just returned from a stay here in the hills of Skiathos. What an amazing island and what a home from home this villa is. The location overlooking the med and the other Greek islands is nothing short of magical.

We love to cook and found the well-equipped kitchen to be just right for our needs. There are a host of bakeries, butchers, greengrocers and supermarkets all within 15 minutes or so, and the main port also has some fabulous restaurants nearby too.

The villa was exactly as described, with a lot of room inside, and a HUGE amount of outdoor space too. The pool was warm enough for a comfortable swim even in early October (as was the sea). And every terrace provided a view of stunning scenery. Breakfast outside watching the sun rise can't really be beaten!

When we arrived the owner had made sure everything we needed to make our stay comfortable was provided, plenty of clean towels, bedding, a coolbox (which we used every day) and nice touches like books and candles. Car hire was arranged for us by the owner too - A car is essential - and was waiting for us on arrival as promised.

With so many stunning beaches within 20 minutes, the island is also wonderfully green with pine forests all over, it made a very welcome change from our usual Sept / Oct destination of the Canaries.

The best thing is that everywhere is within 20 minutes or so, but we certainly didn't feel that the island was small, there was plenty to do and see with a different beach every day, dinner in one of the hundreds of restaurants in the the port, and we even found time to hop over to the neighbouring island of Skopolis (also wonderful).

All in all our most relaxing holiday ever!

Peace and tranquility

  • 3 of 5

We recently stayed at villa polynmia and had a lovely time. There was 6 of us in our group, 3 adults 2 teenagers and a 5 year old and it suited all our needs.

The pool was fantastic and the views from it were amazing!! We used it everyday and with it being so hot it was much needed.

The villa itself was very well equipped, with 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms this is perfect for a large group sharing or a family.if your not eating out the kitchen has everything you need to cook your meals and dine in or eat on one of the 5 beautiful terrace areas.

We struggled slightly with the hill leading too the villa, however this was due to the fact we had a large minibus for a jeep or normal car it would be fine it was only that our hire vehicle was so big!

The views are stunning and sitting out on the main terrace for breakfast was the perfect way to see all the small surrounding islands and beautiful scenery.

I would recommend staying at the villa to anyone who wants a relaxing holiday. The island is small so everything you need is not a great distance away.

Owner's Response: Hi Laura, it was a pleasure helping to arrange your holiday. I am really glad that you enjoyed it so much. I don't know the vehicle you were given but as you say, a car or jeep would cope with the Skiathos terrain admirably. I would love to welcome you back again in the future.

Skiathos is most defiantly our choice of all the Greek Islands we have visited. Best food and sandy beaches and great value for money.

We stayed at Villa Polymnia which offers plenty of rooms and outside space. Very clean and looked after. There is everything you need at the villa and we strait away felt at home. The location is brilliant since you not far from town and lots of quit beaches around the corner.

The owner was very helpful with sorting out a rented car for us and gave us a local information of where the best restaurants and beaches. We will be back!

Highly recommended

Beautiful traditional style villa, so peaceful and private and relaxing. Only a very short 5 minute drive to the beach, town and restaurants. Love the multiple choice of sun terraces and the swimming pool is a great size. Almost forgot to mention the stunning views from the villa!!! Highly recommend both the villa and the island. Have been twice so far and heading back out in September to this villa again. The owners are lovely and so accommodating! Many thanks.

The view is just incredible, you are waking up to paradise every morning! It is remote enough to completely relax but close enough to the beaches, tavernas and town not to feel isolated.

You are never far away from the fantastic beaches of Skiathos, the nearest being a 5 minute drive.


Skiathos airport is only a 15 minute drive away. A hire car would be essential as the villa is set quite high in the hillside. The owner can organise reduced rate car hire at clients request.


Cosmopolitan Skiathos Town is a 10 minute drive away and you are never far away from any of the attractions the island has to offer.
