Apartment and Cottage in Kolios, Skiathos, Sporades Islands, Greece - Peaceful Location, 15 Minutes Walk to Nearest Beach

Our accommodation is located in a hidden valley, a lust for nature lovers, early season, lots of wild flowers, birds, and so many (fruit) trees. A great place for walks, for e.g. wild bird discovering, to discover the inland Eden. We have a mature garden which is on her best of 'showing' of in May / June. Privacy and tranquility is a prior value for our accommodations.

About the Owner

We, Phottis and Christina, (Greek and Dutch) are running the apartments for over 20 years. We are grateful, living here in this valley over 30 years now, and it is a very pretty spot. The place here is very peaceful, no traffic or other noises. This location is a paradise for birds and flowers, although a very central place on the island, easy towards any direction, town, beaches or tavernas.

We are very keen on 'green' living and enjoying our special location here, away from the crowd.

Further we do have deeply respect for all our island's vegetation, the purest, honest, (organic) herbs, fruits and vegetables, wild or our homegrown productions. All is just outstanding.

Gardening, fishing, cooking, are only a few of our passions.

Life here, is still a gift.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We love the place 'Agioklema' it is our second home, shower of in the garden after the beach! Cooking, and then dining after, for hours on the veranda, superb times! We have been there for over 10 times! Mr. and Mrs. Alessi, Italy



Bignonia, The apartment is great, in decoration and location.

The veranda is so big, we often stayed there all day, instead of our plan for going to the beach, we had our drinks, lunch and dinners, and read for hours books. This place made our holiday! Mr. and mrs. Thrundell, Great Britain



We were three couples and we had the opportunity to rent both of the places. It worked out so well! Both of the accommodations, are wonderful and gave us such comfortable feeling, as we had been there for years. Place is lovely quiet, cool in the evenings, central located on the island and with our bikes we were quickly to any beach or into town. Bakkerman, Uyderwaal, Brickens, Belgium



Just a note to thank you again for a wonderful holiday

Ideal holiday accomodation

  • 5 of 5

We loved our 2 week stay in this amazing place. Set in a beautiful valley and surrounded by lovely and productive gardens, Agioklema Cottage provides everything you need with all facilities nearby; a small supermarket, choice of tavernas and access to local transport & beaches.

We really appreciated the comfort and cleanliness of the accomodation and enjoyed the generous hospitality of our hosts Christina and Phottas as well as their willingness to advise and inform.

We would highly recommend this holiday property and would consider returning ourselves.

Marvellous and peaceful stay

  • 5 of 5

We spent 10 marvellous days in the Agioklema Cottage (2 bedrooms). The area is beautiful and peaceful. Everything was perfect : the cottage is nicely decorated, very clean (cleaning many times during our stay) and very comfortable (from the house in general to the bedding, everything is great). The garden is florished and well maintened. Our 22 months old daughter enjoyed it a lot! Christina is a wonderful host, she made our stay very pleasant.

Don't hesitate a second : you'll love it!

The place to be in Skiathos

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful apartment! Being a couple we stayed at Bignonia apartment the smaller of the two owned by Christina, a Dutch lady from Amsterdam living in the island. The setting is perfect, in a small green valley in Kolios just a mile from the sea. So the setting is secluded, very quite and with a lot of privacy. Everything is spotless clean, Bignonia apartment is air conditioned and has a big terrance overlooking the greenery and can host up to three people, kind of a couple with a child. We arrived by taxi and rented a scooter for the week by internet picking it up at airport at Victoria rental: very convenient. Christina is a perfect host she'll changing you linen and towels a few times in the week and give you indications for restaurants and beaches. If you want to be far from the madding crowd and relax after a long day at the beach this is relly the place to be. Ask Christina for her notorious mulberry jam, really a treat!!!

One of the Family!

  • 5 of 5

Back in May/June this year we experienced the most wonderful 3 weeks in the cottage at Kolios. Everything was spotless and the kitchen was the best equipped we have encountered. The bedding was superb and the pillows, as were the beds, very comfortable. Surrounded by lovely gardens, and in a peaceful setting, we could not have wished for a more beautiful place. We were made very welcome and look forward to returning.

Haven of peace Greek style

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for Greek authenticity with all mod cons and equipped to a very high standard, then Agioklema Cottage in Kolios is the place to stay. The setting next to the owner's farmhouse, in a market garden with olive grove is peaceful and yet it is only a slow amble of 20 minutes to the nearest beach which has a taverna and is totally unspoilt. Christina, Fottis and family are very welcoming and hospitable hosts. Christina is a wonderful lady who works hard - sometimes in her garden - producing all manner of fruit, salad and vegetable crops in the heat of the Skiathos summer - she puts our productive garden to shame! Nothing is too much trouble and the accommodation is excellent and very clean. Fottis has kayaks (& other nautical items) for rental on Troulos beach and we had a wonderful time exploring all the beaches and little islets around the area. We stayed at the Bignonia apartment last year as it was just the two of us, but this year we returned with friends and rented the cottage. Both are equally charming and easy to stay in. The surroundings are unspoilt and natural, and we hope to return next year. What more can I say - just try it yourself!

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our week at Agioklema cottage, total peace and quiet, and without doubt the best equipped place any of us have ever rented in Greece! Lovely bed linen and towels. We were greeted with a bowl of freshly cooked Giant Beans, made by the owner that day! We hired a car and the town is just 10 minutes away and lovely beaches in all directions, we especially liked Elias Beach. Totally relaxing week listening to the owls at dusk and watching the bats flying in and out of the terrace. Thankyou Christina.

Location

Activity and Interests

Coast/Beach:

Beaches on Skiathos are more then 70! The closest to our apartments is Kolios, by foot about 10/15 minutes, by car, or bike ± 5 min, and all the others are easy reachable within 15 till 30 minutes. All beaches on south side of the island are sandy. At the north, they are sandy or pebbly. All beautiful! The biggest beaches, availability renting umbrella deck chairs, or getting something to eat or drink. The smaller ones, more 'private', for those who like to be away from the crowd.

Travel:

The airport is ± 20 minutes by car, to harbour of Skiathos town about 15 minutes. It is easy going by bus to town or beaches at the south side of the island, would you like to visit beaches more north, or other places, a car or bike is recommended. For those who like to walk, there are superb sandy roads, with breath taking views.

Distances:

Skiathos town, 10 minutes by car/bike/bus. Koukounaries, by car/bike/bus 10 minutes.

Further Details:

The island is only small. There are all over the place restaurants, supermarkets, shops, but for bank and post offices services a visit to town is needed.

In town is also a health centre.

Notes:

  • Notes on accommodation: Our accommodations are located in the Kolios area, the location is called Makri Katalyma. Which is very central, at the south side of the island. 6km away from town, 6 km away from Koukounaries beach. We are living in a valley, surrounded by olive trees, quinces, mulberry trees and more, which is too a paradise for flowers, birds, and tranquility. We have no direct neighbours, no busy road, no noisy bars, especial for those who love the country side. Close and quick to town, beach or different, but a special 'hidden' place on the island. In April/May, and September/October it is lovely to walk here, but in high season with the heath, it is much more convenient to rent a motorbike or a car. We offer free WiFi, if you would like we can provide beach towels too. Outside: All around our properties is a gorgeous, garden. By each apartment are sun launchers or table and chairs.
