We just spent a week at the Filokalia apartments in Skiathos and had a great time. The apartment was super (probably the best we have found in Greece) and the staff very friendly. There are a few tavernas in the immediate area but it was also lovely to take the water taxi into Skiathos Town in the evening (2.50 euros, about 15 mins). We went on a trip to neighbouring islands Skopelos & Alonissos, which was a great day out with an excellent guide, Victoria. Weather was perfect - later in the year it would have been too hot for us.
The Filokalia is a small complex, nice & quiet, with a small pool. There is a supermarket a short walk away.
The flight out with Enter Air ( never heard of them but I think they are Polish) was OK although he check in staff at Gatwick were slow in arriving and kept everyone hanging round for ages before they finally turned up. Flight was definitely no frills but staff friendly. On the way back, Enter seemed not to be available so Olympic drafted in Atlantic Air from the Faroe Islands, and they were fantastic. Nice modern plane, superb staff, and we got a free sandwich, which was unexpected.
All in all, a great week.
