BFB's Overview

From lazy days by the pool to perfect sea view sundowners, up to 11 family and friends will feel pretty special staying in one of the largest villas on Skiathos, just a 2-minute walk from gorgeous Kolios beach.
5-bedroom Villa Asteri is set in a mature, enclosed garden with a private pool but what really gives the place its wow factor is the view over Kolios Bay from the 1000 sq. ft. terrace on the first floor. To take full advantage of the panorama, the whole of the first floor is an open plan living room, dining area and breakfast kitchen, with bi-fold doors that fully open onto the big enclosed terrace where families can lounge on sofas in the sun and enjoy every meal at the best table in town. With such a backdrop, BBQ’s and self-catering at the villa is definitely a pleasure and never a chore but families can also have the 5-star service of cold beers and cocktails, pizzas and Greek specialities delivered to the villa from the local tavernas.

To give families more privacy, the 5 cool, fresh bedrooms are in two separate parts of the ground floor, with separate entrances and most opening onto the patios and garden. Two bedrooms also have interconnecting doors, making then ideal for a couple with babies and toddlers. If all the grown-ups fancy a night on the town, the English caretaker also offers babysitting at €10 per hour.

Accommodation overview

Villa Asteri is a 2-storey, detached villa with 5 bedrooms, which sleeps up to 11 plus babies (2 travel cots provided). The bedrooms are all on the ground floor in two separate halves of the villa, with direct access to the garden and private pool. The main front door leads to bedroom 1, 2 and 3 which share a small living room, a bathroom with a shower and separate walk-in shower room. Bedroom 1 has a double bed and a single/day bed; bedroom 2 has a double bed; bedroom 3 has twin beds. In the other half of the villa, bedroom 4 (double) and bedroom 5 (twin) have their own entrance, ensuite wet rooms and an interconnecting door which can be locked. The first floor at Villa Asteri is airy and open plan, comprising a modern, tiled breakfast kitchen; a living room area with built in sofas, TV and DVD player; and a dining table by the bi-fold doors to the first floor terrace. There is also a WC on the first floor. The highlight of the house is the 1000 sq ft terrace, enclosed by a railing and stairgate, which is furnished with sofas and a dining table for enjoying the fantastic views over of Kolios Bay and the mountains beyond, from breakfast time to the stunning sunsets.

Location Information

Villa Asteri has a prime location, overlooking picturesque Kolios bay, just 10 minutes from Skiathos town and the airport. The villa is on a lane that leads from the beach, along with just a handful of other houses, apartments and tavernas, serving cold drinks and cocktails, ice creams, pizzas, burgers and Greek dishes – and they’ll even deliver to the villa! The small Manos supermarket is also just a couple of minutes’ walk from Villa Asteri which has most everyday essentials. Two large supermarkets, are a short drive or a few stops on the bus.
Besides the local beach taverna, pool bar and Infinity Blue Restaurant, there are more tavernas in Platanias, 10-minutes’ walk from the villa, such as Green Park, serving delicious food in a pretty garden setting. In Skiathos Town there are hundreds of tavernas and restaurants to choose from and the owners’ recommendations include the courtyard restaurant, Marmita, the grilled meat sharing platters at To Palouki and the contemporary Greek classics at Ergon. If grown-ups book the babysitter, Borzoi turns into a very chic cocktail bar and nightclub later in the evening.

Just a few hundred yards from the villa, Kolios beach is in the large and sheltered Kolios Bay, backed by trees, with golden sand and calm crystal-clear sea for paddling, swimming and snorkelling. There is also a great taverna on the beach. For a livelier beach scene, watersports and lots of beach bars, the most famous beach on Skiathos, Koukounaries, is just a short drive or a few bus stops from the villa, renowned for its extremely fine white sand and glittering sea, backed by fragrant pine forest.
Skiathos has over 60 beautiful beaches along the 45km of coastline and the best, if not the only way, to visit many is by hiring a little boat – like the small island of Tsougria and Lalaria (for a beach breakfast, before the tour boats arrive!). Other beaches recommended by the owner of Villa Asteri include Ligaries, which has a gorgeous taverna just back from the beach, Kechria with a beautiful grass lawn, and Mikros Asselinos in the mornings, when a mule brings the day’s provisions to the funky driftwood taverna and sometimes cools off with a swim! Throughout the summer, ferries run to explore the neighbouring Sporades Islands and Mamma Mia fans will want to make the pilgrimage to the church from the movie on Skopelos.

Nearest medical services: Skiathos, 10 minutes’ drive.

Getting here: Direct flights with BA are available from London City Airport to Skiathos as well as from various other U.K. airports with Thomas Cook and Thomson. Car hire is not essential as there is a regular, air conditioned bus service from Skiathos which stops 2 minutes’ walk from the villa.

Who owns this place?

We have three young children - all of them love the water and are never happier than when they are in Skiathos swimming in the pool, snorkelling, or out on a boat trip looking out for dolphins.

We love Villa Asteri as it allows us to spend quality time with friends and family but has enough space to also be able to enjoy peaceful time apart.

We've refurbished the villa in a relaxed style so that guests feel they can make themselves at home. We really enjoy incorporating personal touches such as the driftwood mobile that we made with the children and the feta tins that I found at the side of the road and 'upcycled' into planters to house our ever-growing succulent collection.

Our favourite part of the house is the new open plan kitchen and living area that opens out on to a huge terrace with amazing views over the bay. It's a great house for a party!
