Part of Villas Zorbathes, we built The Farmhouse in traditional style in rock, wood & stucco, natural slate & tiles. Internally we have laid floors of wood & terra-cotta tiles. The cupboards & kitchen furniture are all hand made in pinewood. Outside is a large shady patio of Pelion slate, with a barbecue, & a lawn with shade from cypress, olive & fig trees. Creeping up the walls are bougainvillea, jasmine, honey-suckle & oleanders. The patio is surrounded by pot-plants & flowering shrubs.
- WiFi access
- 4 bedrooms
- Sleeps 6-7 people in total
The accommodation consists of a large, fully equipped kitchen, with steps leading down to “The Snug” where the fireplace is situated. There is a bathroom with bath & shower, & a smaller toilet with hand-basin upstairs. Downstairs there is a double bedroom with an en suite bathroom & a twin bedroom. Upstairs is another double bedroom & a small, 1 person, sleeping “loft” (ideal for a child). There is ample room for 1 bed to be added should it be necessary for a large family or group. We built this house for when one of our daughters gets married & Lida has made it into a “home” rather than a “rental”. All our clients have commented on it’s cosy feeling.
The villa is fully equipped for self catering. It has an extensive kitchen with cooker, oven, microwave, toaster & coffee maker. Additionally, the villa has a washing machine, an iron and a hair dryer. Cots and baby chairs are also available.
Geof, our time on Skiathos fulfilled our every expectation and then some. This was in no small part due to your wonderful accommodation and your hospitality. It makes all the difference in the world if one feels welcome and you and Lida have that down to a fine art. What you have created in the Zorbathes Valley is very special: I’m quite sure many others have said the same thing. What is so patently obvious is that the stone house is not just that, its a home. For us it was the quantum difference between straightforward accommodation and a quality experience.
