The important characteristic of VIlla Apollon is the feeling of comfort and relaxation. Something you cannot express with words. The beautiful memories as well as well as a nostalgic wish to return. With respect to your dream we thank you in advance and are waiting to make your holiday special.
Swimming pool - Bar area: Sun loungers with umbrellas are provided at the swimming pool area. Swimming pool is more than large enough to accommodate all guests. As pool is not supervised for children is needed adult supervision.
Pool bar serving snacks, drinks and light meals.
Special interest holidays: The island is very good for the very active i.e. walking through the forest and around the tip of Kanapitsa. A visit to the Monasteries is a must, as are the numerous boat trips around the island and out to the beautiful Marine Park. Boat trips are organised for visits to the neighbouring island Skopelos and Alonissos and capital city of Greece Athens.
Further details: Achladies beach is a short walk of 2 minutes. You can find watersports, bars, restaurants, tavernas, supermarkets and water taxi to Skiathos town which is within walking distance (approx. 20 minutes). Bus stop no 9 is 50 meters from the gate of Villa Apollon.
In Skiathos town you can find many bards, clubs, tavernas to suite all. There are many trendy cafes bars on the harbour front that get very busy during the summer. If you want to relax on the cushions in a very chic and cosmopolitan atmosphere, then head to steps of the old port and select a bar that takes your fancy.
This was our first visit to Villa Apollon and our 2nd visit to Skiathos. From walking through the gates on our first day we were welcomed warmly by Dounia who insisted on helping us with our cases. Welcome drinks followed and set the standard for our stay. Other guests had been before and we were welcomed into the Apollon family. Dounia and Captain treat you as family and nothing is too much trouble! Captain has an amazing answer for any medical troubles as well as being the most amazing cook! Spatchcock chicken and mixed grill are to die for - but make sure you've not eaten all day! Dounia makes the best Greek salad and looks after everyone form morning to night. They are fabulous company and offer a mindful of information to help you enjoy your holidays. Children are made to feel special and the fresh water pool is perfect with the most wonderful views across the bay. I was introduced to black sambucca and never looked back! Thank you Dounia and Captain - see you next year!
Wir kannten die Insel vorher nicht, aber Achladies Beach ist der beste Ausgangspunkt - mit Wassertaxis zum schönen Strand nach Koukounaries Beach oder am Abend nach Skiathos Town zu den unzähligen Tavernen(aber auch Achladies Beach selbst ist eine Alternative). Die Gastgeber sind sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit, das Frühstück ist für Griechenland sehr reichhaltig (besonders am Sonntag). Die Zimmer sind sauber und angemessen gross. Die Anlage selbst ist recht gepflegt und Blütenreich. Es war immer recht nett auf eine Schlummertruck zu Dounia und dem Käptain zu schauen und den Tag ausklingen zulassen. Ausserdem gibt es einen gepflegten Pool wo man am Morgen seine Längen schwimmen kann. Familiäres Hotel, auch mit anderen Gästen(vorwiegend Engländer) kein Problem. Einzige Hürde waren 50 Höhenmeter zum Strand(aber das war nicht schlimm, man liegt ohnehin den ganzen Tag am Strand).Dafür herrlicher Ausblick beim Frühstück.
Fazit: Ein sehr gutes Preis -Leistungsverhältnis ohne negativen Überraschungen, kommen sehr gern wieder !!!
We have been visiting Skiathos for the past 20 years and have stayed in various places on the island. Since we discovered Villa Apollon we have now stayed there the past four years. Great location, exceptional food, and the best hosts you could wish for. The rooms are clean and comfortable and I would recommend this property to anyone wanting a Greek experience that would be memorable. As for us we will be returning to Villa Apollon for many years to come.
My husband & I have just returned from a fabulous weeks stay at Villa Apollon. It's the perfect location with breath taking views. Our room was very clean and comfortable. Lovely pool & poolside bar. Dounia & Captain our hosts were very warm and friendly, they made us feel very welcome throughout our stay and they prepared some wonderful food that we would really recommend. Villa Apollon is on a bus route, convenient for visiting beaches, shops or Skiathos Town. There is also a water taxi nearby. We can't wait to go back!
If you want pure relaxation in the company of fantastic people with great food drinks and views to die for then this is place to be.Can not wait to get back to this wonderful island in august and to see the lovely dounia and captian (baby).Also looking forward to seeing the dogs, and seeing how big tulip has grown since last year, The new pool sounds fab so looking foward to jumping in there . And of course eating one of the captians famous steaks and pork chops. Hopefullly our friends keith and carol will be with us again, to enjoy the beatiful sun drenched days lazing around the pool listening to the soft low music in the background, or on the wonderful beaches with the great tavernas and crystal clear waters to cool yourself down in. I wil be putting my order in as soon as i get there for dounia's mouth watering stifado (its a must) . It would be so nice to think that every morning you could wake up to the stunning views that you get from the apartments and studios,but alas its only for two weeks a year,but its the best two weeks of the year!!!!!!.
Second time there and it is every bit as good as the first. The atmosphere is very relaxed and it is handy to have (excellent) food on tap whenever needed whilst having the flexibility to prepare our own meals (or even mix and match). Our small children (9 to 10) thoroughly enjoyed the pool and both the local and more distant beaches.
