Lovely week staying amongst the groves. Like previous reviews this place suits those not needing public transport and who want to be away from the typical hotels and rentals along the main drag of the island. Fantastic hosts Geof, helpful and on hand to help but gave you all the privacy you needed. Small thing and Not a compliant but would suggest those that like a good night sleep, bring a comfortable pillow as we've found all villas on the islands to be lacking in this department.

“Green Paradise”

What a brilliant place we found this summer!!! Everything is beyond one`s dreams!!! The most charming dwelling for two families- 5-7 people each in separate houses, with a swimming pool-a paradise for children, in the most picturesque place on the greenest island called SKIATHOS, GREECE. The climate is wonderful- no matter how hot the days are- the evenings are fresh, the air is full of beautiful smell of the forest around. The forest is full of olive, pine, oak trees and palms.
The hoses are surrounded with enchanting gardens with a lot of flowers. The view is like Van Gogh s pictures alive.The owners -Jeff and Lidia- are two great enthusiastic people, who live nearby and are always ready to help in any way. Their houses are built in a very romantic style, but inside they are comfortable and modern. You can buy fresh vegetables from their gardens, instead of supermarkets. Those, who like hiking and taking photos, will find endless chances for their hobbies. It is better to rent a car, of course, and then it will take only 10 min. to reach the beach or the town. If you spend a day on a board of the rented yacht, you will see endless number of various beaches- wild or luxurious with sand or with stones, but always with very clean and beautiful water. You also will be able to see other islands, some of them you could see in MAMMA MIA.

“Our own piece of Heaven on Skiathos”
Reviewed 5 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

I am here at the farmhouse, staying with three friends. It is only a few minutes drive from the main road, but we are tucked back in the countryside where it is quiet and peaceful. We are eating fresh vegetables from Geof and Lida's garden every day. We are also buying fresh eggs and eating them for breakfast.
We get up and walk to Asselinos's beach in the morning, a nice walk on a scenic road. The flowers, olive trees, and pine trees line the road as we walk. If you want to head into Skiathos for a meal or to shop, it is only a car ride away.
What I love most about the farmhouse, is it's proximity to all of the most desirable beaches and out of the way hikes, and yet it's complete privacy. You can stay at the farmhouse and enjoy their salt water pool, or take a day trip to an exquisite beach. All sights can be accessed from here, without any of the hordes of tourists that throng downtown.
This is my second trip here, the first for a week with my children three years ago, and this time for 5 weeks with friends. I am in my happy place.!

“Knocking on Heaven s door”
Reviewed 11 March 2014 for a stay in March 2014

Zorbathes is a piece of wilderness transformed by owners Geof and LIda into a corner of Paradise, with a lot of of work, but mostly with lots of love.
If you are a mainstream tourist, looking for boring cliches and kitsch conventional summer destination than you should NOT stay in Zorbathes villas. But if you are looking for a different holiday, 10 minutes drive from the wide Asselinos beach and close to all beautiful North-West ones, then you should consider renting the Barn or the Farmhouse. Besides their warm, true friendship the owners will treat you with their best organic grown vegetables and fruits, valuable informations about the island and attention you cannot get within a standard hotel. Moreover Zorbathes is out of the hustle that usually happens in July and August and it s the perfect retreat location for families or groups of friends, in the middle of a green, unique surrounding. Not to mention the beautiful design of the villas and the pool that will make happy all the guests, the small as well as the big ones!
