Lovely Rustic villa
We stayed for a week in early July and had a fantastic week. The views are wonderful, Kevin the onsite manager is helpful and fantastically quiet. You do really need to hire a car because it is a ten minute drive out of Skiathos Town with only one restaurant within easy walking distance. The villa is full of Vivienne's personal possessions so it feels very homely but some might think its a bit cluttered. Warm pool, plenty of sunbeds, effective aircom and several sunbathing decks. Charming.
If I could come here every year I would! The views alone would do it - truly spectacular view of the sea from the terrace and a lovely pool that we struggled to tear ourselves away from despite having come to spend time at the beach. One of the best things about this place is that it is family owned and run, so it is beautifully cared for and feels like a home rather than an agency letting. That said all v well organised and clean. We were there as two friends with a child but it would work for a group of families of friends as there is a large double room plus three small twin rooms and lots of outdoor space. The villa is comfortable, spacious, with a beautiful outdoor space organised with tables and sunloungers on different levels, surrounded by fig trees, grape vines, flowers.... You could happily hang out at the villa and not go anywhere for a week! That said it would be a shame as Skiathos is so lovely. It's really worth having a car on the island as there are so many lovely beaches and restaurants and sites to visit, but not impossible to get around by bus. The nearest beach from the villa is walkable - we did it a couple of times - but it's a long steep schlep in high temperatures. Lovely Olive Tree restaurant round the corner (also walkable but take a torch at night!) with incredible views and lovely food, but our favourite place to eat was the fish taverna on Sklithri beach, lovely and laid back by day and intimate and romantic at night, with tables right on the beach, dinner by lamplight. The monastery was also a fantastic place to visit, incredibly serene and stunning setting. The other brillaint thing about the villa is that the owner Vivienne is incredibly helpful and was always available to answer questions, offer advice, help with organising travel or car hire - and clearly knows the island very well and loves it. We left feeling fully recharged, rested and relaxed.
Perfect family villa with stunning views.
"What a great place for our family get together"
From our booking through to our departure we were impressed by the care and dedication of Orchard Villa's owner Vivienne and her support team.
Vivienne furnished us with all the information one could wish for to help get our holiday on Skiathos off to a great start. Info included travel suggestions, Local Car Hire (you will need to check your insurance cover with international car hire firms as 70% of the islands roads are NOT paved therefore your included insurance will not cover you) Places to shop, eat and visit etc.. and this was before we had even left the UK!
We were met by the property manager and were given a comprehensive tour of the property and an overview of the facilities including the do's and dont's of life on a greek island.
The 'welcome pack' was very impressive and included EVERYTHING we needed and more for our first night at the villa, we have travelled extensively and have never been so well looked after.
The Villa was well prepared, clean and well appointed with everything needed for a family with 6 adults, two young people and a small child including a new Cot, play pen, highchair and bath.
The property has a master suite with double bed and ensuite with a view through the gardens and across to Skopolos.
The other three bedrooms are situated at the front of the Villa and all have twin beds and are of reasonable size with Two shower/toilet rooms in the corridor directly outside. All rooms have ample wardrobe/draw space.
The living room kitchen and diner has a kitchen diner divided by a breakfast bar then on a split level a small seating area with easy chairs and fireplace, these areas have plenty of access out to the garden and have windows overlooking the views to the sea. There are hundreds of books, guides, maps etc and a good selection of games.
The kitchen has all the required equipment including Dishwasher, two fridges (with small freezer) washing machine, microwave, cooker/oven, kettle, coffee maker and all the cooking/eating utensils you might need, and a well stocked cleaning cupboard with all the basics required.
On three split levels the gardens are a delight, mature vines over trellis and copious flower pots and planted beds, a grassed area off to one side and plenty of seating, dining and chill out areas. There is a sun deck with loungers and a pool deck with a generous sized pool overlooking the gorgeous views.
All in all a perfect holiday.
Così e così
Siamo tornati da pochi giorni, ma la vacanza non è stata proprio bellissima. La villa è grande ma sporca e vecchia. Abbiamo dovuto lavare stoviglie e pentole ma la gravità erano i teli di spugna che sicuramente non erano pulitissimi. La piscina l'abbiamo potuta utilizzare solo dal terzo giorno perchè torbida e sporca.
L'unica nota positiva il grande e ricco kit di benvenuto........Peccato
We spent a magical 12 nights at Orchard Villas, the pictures do not do justice to the magnificent views. The detailed info pack about the Island (emailed by the owners) was spot on and we would concur to all their suggestions of beaches and restaurants to eat at. Vivienne was most helpful and the few blips (of which where no fault of the owners) where dealt with quickly. Even on our day trip to Skopolos where we had no idea where to eat - Vivienne came back to us within moments with a fab suggestion. We have suggested that they need to refresh the towels and have plastic cups and plates for kids and I'm sure they will take it on board as Vivienne is most eager to make sure her guest have a pleasant stay. We hope when we next visit they will have installed wifi as the 3G was intermittent. This did not spoil my trip (but my husband needs to be connected). We came away with many wonderful moments to add to the memory bank! I have already recommended Orchard Villas to friends who enjoy the rustic life and laid back approach Orchard Villas and Skiathos have to offer.
I am delighted that you had such a great time at Orchard Villa.The villa is very special as is the beautiful island of Skiathos.
Thank you so much for your lovely comments and for your suggestions, I will be getting some children's unbreakable mugs and plates for our kitchen, a great idea!
You were very unlucky with the 3G/4G signals. We now receive a strong signal at the villa and our smart-phone 'wifi hotspots' give us wifi access for our laptops etc.It is now a really good option with roaming charges being dropped.
Many thanks again for your lovely comments and I look forward to you and your family staying at Orchard Villa again.
MAIS SOBRE O SKIATHOS
SKIATHOS VILLAGE e HARBORS
Você talvez tenha visto o porto para a "chegada dos pais" em "Mamma Mia" (o casamento foi na igreja de Agios Ioannis, na vizinha ilha de Skopelos). Além disso, a pitoresca aldeia de Skiathos tem uma rua principal pavimentada sem trânsito e ruas secundárias, um antigo porto cheio de taverna.
Há uma enorme variedade de TAVERNAS, CAFES, BARES, LOJAS e NOITE-VIDA… e todos os serviços: BANCOS / ATMs, GARAGENS, CABELEIREIROS, SAÚDE, VIAGEM, POST, AJUDA TURÍSTICA, etc.
PRAIAS E TAVERNAS
Skiathos tem literalmente dezenas de praias de areia ... tudo dentro de 10-25 minutos ou mais unidade de Orchard Villa (bar algumas enseadas que necessitem de aluguer de barcos ou de táxi aquático, e alguns um pouco mais com uma curta caminhada através da floresta, ou um desça para as enseadas menores.
A dúzia de praias principais tem uma ou mais tabernas e bares, e desportos aquáticos como o esqui aquático; parascendente; Anéis insufláveis e «foguetes» tubulares rebocados por lanchas rápidas; vela ligeira; canoas ou gaivotas; windsurf; Mergulho. Algumas das pequenas enseadas têm cantinas de estilo antigo ao ar livre com um churrasco e tons de sol palm-frond.
Orchard villa é 'no topo de' 6 das 12 principais praias - Vassilias, Achladies, Sklithri, Tzanerias, Kanapitsa, Megali Ammos. Todos são de areia e dentro de 10 minutos de carro, com mais de 60 praias / enseadas dentro de 25 minutos de carro -
As praias principais mais próximas (Achladies e Vassilias) são 5 minutos de carro ou 20 minutos a pé descendo a colina, mas duas vezes que o backup no calor - não é bom com sacos de praia, compras e crianças. Então, os horários todos assumem que você tem um carro alugado - eu posso colocar você em contato com um alugador de confiança que me conhece bem, e vai a milha extra para os meus convidados.
Se você preferir passar a maior parte do tempo na villa, há táxis de rádio confiáveis ou ônibus, táxis aquáticos para as praias e aldeias, e balsas para excursões locais pela ilha ou pelo continente.
As minhas 8 praias favoritas e 24 tabernas estão na Parte 2 do 'Orchard Villa Guest Guide' de 32 páginas, além de muitas ideias para descobrir mais.
Para caminhadas e passeios a cavalo, há uma abundância de cobertura de floresta de pinheiros com caminhos e trilhas da floresta, flores silvestres e alguns riachos que funcionam durante todo o verão a partir de nascentes de alto nível. Skiathos raramente sofre o calor extremo de Creta, Rhodes e Chipre, ou os ventos meltemi, muitas vezes contínuos, que podem explodir as ilhas Cíclades e Creta ... e a maioria das praias são de areia, não a pedra calcária que os folhetos de férias não dizem característica de tantas outras ilhas!
Para encontrar "todos os itens acima" - e a volta à ilha - há muitos mapas na estante Orchard Villa - incluindo os mapas "Sky / 3D" (gratuitos em lojas que na verdade não vendem mapas!) para encontrar lojas / serviços etc. na aldeia. Mas - não confie no mapa da estrada / trilha, use os mapas "Anavasi" etc. na estante da villa.
Além disso, consulte "Useful Tel Nos" no "Orchard Villa Guest Guide", parte 2 "- especialmente para farmácias, médicos, dentistas, táxis e viagens.
