This was our first Holiday in 5 years but it was worth the wait, as we just spent a week at the Filokalia apartments in Skiathos and had an amazing time. The apartment was very clean and tidy with a pool and pool side bar. (treat yourself to one of Shellena's special English breakfasts) who was the most helpful and friendliest of staff." Hey.. she is a Brit after all"
The nearest beach was only about a 10 min walk but quite busy, though there our little gems to be found by just jumping on the bus. The buses run from town to the other end of the island about every 20 mins.
There was a restaurant at the end of the road called "Porta Rossa" which I would recommend as the food was excellent and the staff very friendly also.
I would also recommend going in to Town either by bus but more enjoyable to take the water taxi in the evening (2.50 euros each & takes about 15 mins).
We went on a trip "secret Skiathos" which was a great day out with an excellent guide but would of been better with more time in the old capital.
Weather was perfect - later in the year it would have been too hot for us.
