Orchard Villa 

Preview ... nestles in a ½-acre securely fenced olive-grove, with level access on foot from private parking drive for 4 cars, on a peaceful hillside over Skiathos Bay and its stunning '7-island' panorama (guests say equals 'best in Mediterranean'). It's near village, only 10 min. drive to harbourside tavernas, cafes, and shops ... near beach (only 5-25 mins drive to 50+ sandy beaches and coves), near shops, and near taverna (3 of the Skiathos' top-10 within 14 mins walk),

... a traditional Greek island villa with blue shutters, low-pitch red-tiled roofs, and roof sun-terrace. There’s a large cool flag-stoned split-level living room, four air-con wood-beamed bedrooms, 3 wet-rooms (one en-suite), and split-level salon with British 'pub'-style bar across to a friendly open-plan kitchen.  

Four French windows open onto a furnished vine-covered courtyard patio overlooking the three garden terraces for sunbathing, partying, and drinks by the private pool. The patio is is your extended living-room, comfy for dinner and drinks 'til after midnight, with the garden lights and moonlit views across the bay to twinkling village lights on Skopelos and Evia Islands.

- Skiathos  (beaches - tavernas - clubs - travel ...) - 

Preview - the picturesque traffic-free Village harbour (10 mins) saw the Mamma Mia ‘Fathers Arrival’. Cobbled lanes lead to the taverna-lined harbour, shops, clubs, bars, and all services. 

Most Skiathos villas are built in traditional Aegean island style, with low-pitched red-tile roofs, blue shutters, white or pastel walls - just like 'Orchard Villa' above (and no giant multi-storey hotels)

Skiathos has a world-class scenic coast and (click ) views, and unlike most Greek islands, literally scores of sandy beaches and coves. The dozen or so larger beaches have tavernas, bars, and water-sports.

All beaches on the main island are within 5-25mns drive, plus maybe a scramble down to a favourite secluded cove. It's also pleasant - but takes longer - by water-taxi from the harbour, and to beaches on nearby islets Tsougria and Arkos (with simple cantinas).

Press reviews:
"The Times" Skiathos is no.1 "Top Greek Island" (review ), and 'best buy' review 'Which ?' names Skiathos joint no.2 "Top Greek Island

"The Times" says ... Petite Skiathos is home to a huge 63 of Greece’s most picture-perfect beaches. Deep green pine forests cloak the hilly interior, while beautiful, vivacious Skiathos Town - your spot for harbour-view cocktail bars and gourmet restaurants - becomes a lively street party every summer night. It’s an island for the young and young at heart, including a few celebrity regulars, but plenty of affordable tavernas, bars and beaches even without a Hollywood budget.

- Travel to Skiathos
Preview - the airport upgrade gave us more budget air-fares and direct UK/EU flights, inc B-A in Jul-Aug.
Other options: budget flights to Athens and onward by domestic 'Aegean/Olympic' airline or express hydrofoil.
It's also surprisingly quick and easy to combine a Skiathos holiday with a car tour ... possible stop-overs Venice, the Alps, Athens.

Good Local transport - bus, radio-taxis, water-taxis, ferries for island or mainland trips. Away from beaches are dozens of village and country tavernas; hill walks, forest hikes, horse-riding, trail bikes; and restored Byzantine monasteries/chapels (but no 'classical' ruins!). 

... and all within minutes; on an island only 6 x 9 miles many see as the most attractive in all Greece.
