Holiday Rental House
The Barn is so called because it originally started it's life as a place to store hay & grain for our horse, donkey, goats & chickens. However, as we gradually switched our source of income from animals and an organic garden to providing accommodation for those looking for peace and quiet, we slowly converted the Barn into the modern house which it has now become. It is surrounded by fruit trees, oleanders, Virginia creeper, vines & flowering shrubs. There is a large shady patio & another sitting area under the shade of a large pine tree. We have incorporated as much wood, terra-cotta & native materials as was possible during the conversion & it has developed a distinctive character all of it's own....The Barn is so called because it originally started it's life as a place to store hay & grain for our horse, donkey, goats & chickens.

Not a great deal more to add than other reviewers. The Barn is very relaxed and comfortable. The pool is great and although unheated is very warm in August. You need a car but are only a few minutes drive from Troulos for lots of...More

We stayed one week, two adults and 5 teenagers. We had a fantastic stay, barbecue by the pool and relaxing in the sun. The hosts are very helpful and welcoming and we would love to come back in the future.

About the neighbourhood
Zorbathes Valley is in the middle of the island but towards the west end. A stream runs through with plane trees of many hundreds of years age next to it. It is green & shady all through the summer months and cooling breezes blow through it. It is a haven of peace & quiet.
How to get there
There are many direct charter flights from al over Europe to Skiathos and daily ferries and hydrofoils from Volos and Aghios Konstantinos (for Athens). Olympic airways fly to Skiathos daily throughout the season and twice or three times per week in the winter season.
