About the property

Villa in Skiathos - Peaceful Location, 7 Minutes Drive To 10 Sandy Beaches

The Barn is so called because it originally started it's life as a place to store hay and grain for our horse, donkey, goats and chickens. However, as we gradually switched our source of income from animals and an organic garden to providing accommodation for those looking for peace and quiet, we slowly converted the barn into the modern house which it has now become. It is surrounded by fruit trees, oleanders, Virginia creeper, vines and flowering shrubs. There is a large shady patio and another sitting area under the shade of a large pine tree. We have incorporated as much wood, terracotta and native materials as was possible during the conversion and it has developed a distinctive character all of it's own. It is situated in its own grounds providing complete privacy. The accommodation consists of a fully equipped kitchen and open-plan living room with French doors leading out to the patio. There is a bathroom with bath and shower and a smaller bathroom with just shower facilities.

About Geoffrey Baldry

We (Lida and Geof Baldry) have lived here for over 40 years and have spent that time creating an environment which has all the creature comforts but still feels like the unspoiled Greece which we have come to love. We started with no road, no water and no house, but we dug our own well and carried the materials for our first (wooden) house by horse and donkey along the narrow track that eventually became our road. We now have 3 very solid houses built of stone and wood, bricks and mortar, running water, electricity, telephone and even an internet connection, but we have a special appreciation of all these "normal" things by having had to struggle hard to achieve them. We have come to value the peace and quiet here, above everything else.

Guestbook comments from the owner

'Geoff, our time on Skiathos fulfilled our every expectation and then some. This was in no small part due to your wonderful accommodation and your hospitality. It makes all the difference in the world if one feels welcome and you and Lida have that down to a fine art.

What you have created in the Zorbathes Valley is very special: I'm quite sure many others have said the same thing. What is so patently obvious is that the house is not just that, its a home. For us it was the quantum difference between straightforward accommodation and a quality experience.'

'We were fortunate enough to have 2 months with our little baby at Zorbathes. Geof and Lida made our stay so memorable and made us feel so welcome. From little packages of home grown veggies and homemade wine to advice on the hidden spots on the island and best places for an Ouzo as the sun sets, we really felt like we were so looked after. The houses are located in a beautiful part of the island, in a quiet, peaceful, valley.'
