Stunning villa

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous location with wonderful view, virtually private beach easily accessible, more of a home than a holiday let. Plenty of space and good terraces for shade and sun.

I would recommend hiring a car if you have children and if you want to swim at far flung public beaches.

Very nice place !!

  • 5 of 5

We've been there for 2 weeks beginning of October and can say that we've had a very nice time there.

The house is well located, close to Skiathos town (but far enough to have privacy) with a bus stop just opposite to the house and a large private area to park several cars. Well equipped also (even if a washing machine would be useful). Cleaning once a week.

You can benefit from huge terraces with on one side the sun all day long and on the other side of the house some shade.

A nice beach is available down the alley (we don't meet anyone there during our stay as the access is limited to 3 houses...).

And there is also a very large barbecue area (up to 30-50 perons I would say !!) !

In a few words a very nice place !!!

We visited Skiathos and Villa Penelope at spring time. It is an ideal house for families with children as both the house and the beach are easily accessible. The villa has huge spaces with big balconies and a breathtaking view! One of the advantages is that you can also rent a boat and keep it at the beach downstairs.

The manager and the cleaning team were both very helpful and friendly with everything we needed. They proposed us nice places and kept the property clean and well equipped! Generally the villa is well maintained and has tasteful decor. It has also huge open spaces ideal for parties. We really enjoyed our stay and can't wait to come back!

Villa Penelope, Skiathos

  • 4 of 5

Very comfortable and well equipped villa with views to die for from the many terraces. Loads of entertaining space, well equipped kitchen and good bathrooms. Huge BBQ area for large parties. One or two things lacking, such as a washing machine, which I've told Vasilis about and he's remedying for next year. The lack of a swimming pool, which is great for families with young children, is more than compensated for by the villa having its own private beach down a few perfectly manageable steps and only shared with two other villas. Much better than fighting the crowds on all the public beaches on the island. A piece of Greek heaven to which we will return.

Villa Penelope, Skiathos

  • 5 of 5

This is a fabulous villa for family groups or groups of friends. It is extremely spacious inside the villa and also on the various terraces at several levels outside. There is a large BBQ terrace with excellent BBQ, built in tables etc where we had 30 for dinner the night before a wedding ......we could have invited 80 people and there still would have been plenty of space! In addition, both levels of the house have large balconies with far reaching views out to the Mediterranean. There is no pool which is ideal if you have young children in the party. This is more than compensated for by the villa having its own beach down a few very manageable steps ....a real luxury when most of the other beaches on Skiathos are full of people! The house is extremely well equipped in a very comfortable and functional way and well serviced by excellent cleaning staff who will come in as required. All in all, a piece of Greek heaven!

Villa Penelope is easy to find and access. It is located on the island's main road, at the Sklithri-Kanapitsa bay, half way between the town of Skiathos (4 km) and the world famous Koukounaries beach (6km). There is a bus stop outside the villa's wall providing access to all key locations of the island without the need of renting a car.

Skiathos has many places to eat out, ranging from simple fish tavernas to restaurants offering Tapas-Meze, Chinese and French cuisine. For those looking for a wide choice of night-life, Skiathos town has a good number of bars, and clubs with foreign and Greek music.

The island is extremely verdant and green, but it also has an abundance of fine,64 sandy beaches, which stretch all along the south facing coast, all offering fabulously clean seas, golden sand, as well as a selection of water sports. Scuba diving, horse back riding are available as is a tennis club with clay courts. Despite the fact that the island and some of its beaches can be busy in high season, it is still possible to escape from the crowds; Skiathos north coast has remained effectively untouched and numerous lovely natural beaches can be found there which are accessible only by private boat. For hikers, there are the famous Kastro ruins, and the well kept monasteries selling home made oil and spirits. For boat lovers, there is charter sailing and boat tours around the island and you can visit the Marine Park on neighboring Alonissos Island which protects monk seals and two different kinds of dolphins.
