We had a week in this comfortable apartment, with a lovely view from the balcony, in the old Plakes part of Skiathos town. Quaint cobbled streets and surprisingly quiet considering how close it is to the old port with it's many tavernas and shops. Lots to look at from the balcony with ferries and boats coming in and out of the harbour, lovely walk to the old Plakes promontory and easy walking distance to buses and beaches.
Stathis was most approachable and the perfect host.
Thank you for the wine, water and your kindness.
Stathis was very kind and respectful. He was always available to answer our questions. He was very generous to get up very early to meet us after our very early flight to Skiathos. He helped to orient us to the island. The apartment was clean and the location was perfect.
My boyfriend and I had a really lovely holiday at this apartment on our first ever visit to Skiathos and we would fully recommend a stay here!
Stathis is a lovely welcoming host - meeting us from the taxi when we arrived, taking us to the apartment and spending time going through our map of the island with us giving us tips on best places to visit. Stathis also said he would be working at 'Brusco' restaurant in the old port and invited us for dinner - we enjoyed a lovely meal here one evening, and Stathis kindly treated us both to a complimentary first drink. The fish here was very good and I would recommend the very tasty Brusco salad!
For us the best thing about the apartment was the location - just 5 minutes walk down to the old port (takes slightly longer to get back as quite a few steps), which has a huge range of lovely restaurants and bars and a really nice bustling atmosphere. From the port you can explore the town and there are lots of boat trips available. It is also worth walking round the small peninsula separating the old port from the new port - there is a nice bar here with amazing views and some steps take you down to a rocky area where there is a diving board to enjoy! In the other direction from the apartment about a ten minute walk takes you to Megali Amos beach with a good range of beach bars and watersports/motor boat rental available. Megali Amos isn't the nicest beach on the island and it is worth venturing further to find beautiful beaches - the island is so small a water taxi from the port to the other end of the island takes 15 mins and costs 5 euros so hardly a big journey! That said, Megali Amos was good for us to have so near as we enjoyed wakeboarding sessions and rented a motor boat for the day - it is a nice enough beach for a swim and plenty of places to get a cold mythos! Another nice spot a few minutes from the apartment is 'Plakes' - a rocky outcrop good for jumping/snorkeling/watching the world go by!
The apartment itself is very spacious - there were only two of us but could easily accommodate 4. The view from the balcony is lovely and we enjoyed watching all the boats come and go.
We would like to say thank you Stathis for having us to stay at your apartment - we would definitely recommend 'Old Town with sea view' to others. We had a really fantastic holiday and totally understand why so many people chose to return to beautiful Skiathos!
Stathis is the most welcoming host you could think of...and acted as much as an Island guide as he did a host. He helped us with recommendations on beaches, restaurants and things to do and see in Skiathos.
Beautiful island, really great apartment with amazing views and located in the best part of the town to stay in in my view. It was very, very quiet at the apartment but you are only a 2 minute walk from the best restaurants and bars in Skiathos town.
Il quartiere era stupendo,centrale a pochi passi dal centro storico,dal mare,supermercati e negozi di souvenir oltre naturalmente ristoranti e take away...l'appartamento era delizioso curato in ogni minimo particolare,molto nuovo ed inoltre c'era una donna che effettuava il cambio delle lenzuola e si occupava della casa in generale...dal balcone si poteva ammirare un panorama mozzafiato in particolare al tramonto!!!Per quanto riguarda Stathis non abbiamo trovato un host ma un AMICO...ci ha accolto come se ci conoscessimo da sempre e si è messo a disposizione per qualsiasi cosa avessimo bisogno....una persona cordialissima con un grande cuore, non finiremo mai di ringraziarlo per tutto quello che ha fatto per noi...Fossero tutti così....consigliatissimo ...
Stathis was the best host imaginable! He helped us settle in and told us what Skiathos had to offer, and he was always there for advice. I highly recommend staying at Stathis apartment not only because of Stathis being a great host but also because of the splendid location of the apartment, close to old port (which is much more quiet and nicer than new port) and also close to mini-market and the stunning "plakes" where you can swim, jump and tan. The apartment it self is also very nice, clean and spacious with the most beautiful view!
Appartamento ed accoglienza perfetta! Zona tranquilla a due passi dal centro del paese e pulizia ottima. Consigliatissimo
The flat was in an excellent location, just minutes away from the port and the heart of Skiathos' old town. Stathis picked us up from the airport and was very friendly, giving us tips on what to do and where to go in the island. Overall it was a lovely stay!
Stathis made us feel very welcome and is a very genuine and nice man. The accommodation is situated only a couple of minutes walk from the Old Port yet affords a very peaceful and quiet environment. We spent many an hour sitting on the balcony watching the boats come and go. The nearest beach is also only 10 minutes walk away so the property is ideally located between the beach and the town. The property itself was ideal for our purposes and was regularly cleaned and supplied with fresh bedding and towels during our stay.
All in all we were very happy and could definitely recommend "Old Town with sea view".
Myself and my boyfriend returned from an 11 night stay at Stathis's wonderful apartment this June. Upon our inevitable return to the gorgeous island of Skiathos, we will 100% choose to stay with Stathis again.
The Apartment itself is located in the perfect area. Only seconds walk from the first of many Tavernas, but still extremely peaceful. The walk down into town is a matter of minutes and will take you past some of the oldest and most authentic Tavernas on the island.
Beaches are also within 20mins walk, as well as close by bus stops for buses out to the other beaches.
Inside, the apartment is really spacious with more than enough room for two to relax and make a home. Nothing like a small and stuffy hotel room! Situated so close to the front, the amazing sea view from the balcony was a real bonus too.
It was a pleasure to meet Stathis who went to special efforts to make us feel welcome. He kindly picked us up from the airport, offered to show us around the area and even treated us to a bottle of wine and candles on our first night.
Thanks Stathis and see you again soon!
