"Five years ago, we found Villa Elpiniki by chance. We knew exactly what we did and did not want from a holiday. We love the Greek islands but weren't sure exactly which island we wanted to visit on this occasion. On paper Villa Elpiniki and Skiathos met all of our criteria.On arrival we knew immediately that we had found a real gem. As soon as we got outside the airport we were struck by the beauty of the island and the aroma of fresh herbs and plants.
The picture of Villa Elpiniki which we had viewed in advance, could only hint of the commanding position it boasts, high up on the hill, nestled amongst loving tendered trees and gardens, giving inviting views of the surrounding area. A short but robust walk, brings you within all of Troulos's amenities and Tavernas selling delicious meals. The joy of being so high above these is that you have unspoiled peace and tranquility. Therefore you can have time at the beach, an action packed evening, or a lengthy meal, but be guaranteed an afternoon siesta or a good nights sleep without interruption.
As for Villa Elpiniki's owner, Kostas, you could not ask for a nicer host. He is a true gentleman to whom nothing is too much trouble. He is rightly proud of his accommodation. Himself and his staff take great care to ensure that everywhere is comfortable, well maintained, spotlessly clean and that his guests have everything they need. Kostas is always available should you need him, but he never intrudes. He is so affordable and welcoming, that it is great to stop, chat and discover more about Skiathos, its people and its way of life.We have booked our fourth stay at Villa Elpiniki and 2 weeks just isn't enough! So we are going to stay for 3 weeks this time. Only trouble is, it will be even more of a wrench returning home.
In summary, Villa Elpiniki offers a real unspoiled haven, where you can shake off all the strains and stresses of everyday life, slow down unwind and soak up the many delights that Skiathos has to offer".
