About the property

Villa in Skiathos, Greek Islands - Real Peace & Quiet, 5 Minutes Drive From Beaches

We built The Farmhouse in traditional style in rock, wood & stucco, natural slate & tiles. Internally we have laid floors of wood & terra-cotta tiles. The cupboards & kitchen furniture are all hand made in pinewood. Outside is a large shady patio of Pelion slate, with a barbecue, & a lawn with shade from cypress, olive & fig trees. Creeping up the walls are bougainvillea, jasmine, honey-suckle & oleanders. The patio is surrounded by pot-plants & flowering shrubs.

About Geoffrey Baldry

We (Lida and Geof Baldry) have lived here for over 40 years and have spent that time creating an environment which has all the creature comforts but still feels like the unspoiled Greece which we have come to love. We started with no road, no water and no house, but we dug our own well and carried the materials for our first (wooden) house by horse and donkey along the narrow track that eventually became our road. We now have 3 very solid houses built of stone and wood, bricks and mortar, running water, electricity, telephone and even an internet connection, but we have a special appreciation of all these "normal" things by having had to struggle hard to achieve them. We have come to value the peace and quiet here, above everything else.

Geoffrey Baldry purchased this farmhouse in 1995

Why Geoffrey Baldry chose Skiathos

We didn't buy it, we built it.

I have always wanted to build a house in stone in the traditional Greek manner and, after having built three other houses, I finally attained my dream.

What makes this farmhouse unique

Total peace & quiet.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Geoff, our time on Skiathos fulfilled our every expectation and then

some. This was in no small part due to your wonderful accommodation

and your hospitality. It makes all the difference in the world if

one feels welcome and you and Lida have that down to a fine art.

What you have created in the Zorbathes Valley is very special: I'm

quite sure many others have said the same thing. What is so patently

obvious is that the stone house is not just that, its a home. For us

it was the quantum difference between straightforward accommodation

and a quality experience.
