Stays at the Villa Maria are all about relaxing. The hotel isn’t an all-singing, all-dancing kind of place, so you won’t find activities and entertainment – but if you crave peace and quiet, plus a chilled-out pool area with a bar serving drinks and snacks, you’ve come to the perfect place!
The curvy pool is on a raised terrace in the middle of the grounds. Little ones also have their own pool at one end, so you can watch them from the nearby loungers or the bar’s al fresco seating area.
Inside, rooms are simply presented with classic wooden furnishings. You can expect a kitchenette, a satellite TV, and balcony or terrace.
Overview of Troulos
Skiathos is a small island with many different faces. It’s a haven for outdoor lovers, as the picturesque landscape is littered with hiking trails that make it easy to explore.
On a holiday to Skiathos, you have the chance to experience secluded coves in Troulos by the Villa Maria , wide stretches of beach in Kanapitsa and party-centric shores in Koukounaries. If you’re feeling particularly adventurous, you can also take a trip to the nearby island of Skopelos where Mamma Mia! was filmed.
Things to do in Skiathos
The peaceful setting of the Villa Maria is part of its appeal. Although you’re surrounded by palm trees and have the feeling of seclusion, everything’s within walking distance. The centre of Troulos is only 15 minutes away, and you can reach the beach in 20.
The beach is a big hit with families because it’s closely watched by lifeguards. The sands are white, incredibly well-kept and there are plenty of water sports to try.
Away from the beach, the cobbled streets are full of cosy cafes and beautiful restaurants. But, many visitors head to the hiking trails, as they’re the best spots to see the stunning natural landscape.
Experience nature at its best with a stay in Skiathos. With crushed sands, hiking routes and action out on the water, you’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to activities.
