Villa Arios, on the lush island of Skiathos, provided the perfect base from which my large family (15 adults 3 children under the age of 4 ) could relax and experience an idilic greek island holiday.The Villa is romantically decorated throughout ... think Boho meets Under the Sea ! It is divided into 5 units which provide personal and communal space . Our family range from 0 - 60 and we ate every night around an enormous round table on the large terrace with breathtaking birds eye views of the sea and surrounding woodland. Peregrin Falcons overhead and full moon rising behind Scopelos . The kitchen is full of rustic charm and a large lounge provided a homely space to watch movies on the one stormy day. We ate lunch out at the Kanapista Taverna and travelled into Skiathos town on the delightful Kanapista Ferry. All a 10/15 min walk from the Villa. We charted a motor yacht ( Cat Kostantinos +306944392094 ) on 3 separate days. He took us all to quiet beaches , we swam off the boat and he cooked delicious greek food . Eva, at the local store kept us supplied with food deliveries. A watch has to be kept on the little ones as there are 2 swimming pools around the house and a country path to a beautiful private beach.
The owner was very helpful and answered all my many questions .
I can highly recommend this beautiful large villa to anyone who shares my romantic dream of a simple family holiday in Greece
