About the Owner
About Christine de Jong
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, but so easy towards any direction, town, beaches or tavernas. Important is for us, in trying to reach the level, wherein our guests will feel home, relaxed, happy, with using in/out the accommodation those extra's what makes you get those ultimate holiday feelings.
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.

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

- 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.
