Welcome to Villa Melia
The location of Villa Melia is really unique just 1,5 km from Skiathos town and 3 km from Skiathos airport. Villa Melia stands at a level about 40m above the main road which runs from Skiathos town to Koukounaries beach. It is accessed by a 70m track from the main road leading to the parking area.
The surrounding gardens of Villa Melia consist of orange trees, magnolia trees, olive trees, rose bushes and many other flowering shrubs & plants. The area beyond the garden consists of pine trees & olive groves. The main building and the pool area are distant enough from the main road and Skiathos town to avoid all the fussiness and the noise of the busy streets, but also close enough to have an easy access whenever you get in that kind of mood.
The nearest beach is Basilias beach (100m) and also Megali Ammos (200m), a little farther away is Ahladias beach (Esperides hotel) (800m). These beaches are all sandy with beach-tavernas and have water-sports & scuba-diving available, with the one of Basilias being usually much less crowded and peaceful than the others.
There is a regular bus service (every 20 min.) which provides access to all the beaches of the south coast of the island and into Skiathos town - the nearest bus stop to Villa Melia is number 7, approximately 80m away. The island also has an excellent taxi-service and a taxi can be arranged for you at Villa Melia if required.
Car or motorcycle rental is easily arranged and it is possible to have your rental vehicle delivered to Villa Melia. It is also possible for us to arrange a rental car to be available for you on arrival at Skiathos Airport. We would recommend your own transport in order to explore this beautiful island fully.
There are a number of restaurants and tavernas within 300m and a range of supermarkets within 700m. The supermarkets will normally provide a delivery service to Villa Melia on request.
Villa Melia is positioned on a hillside in the area of "Basilias", on the south coast of Skiathos island. Due to each unique location it boasts some wonderfully panoramic views of Aegean sea, overlooking the two bays of "Basilias beach" and that of "Megali Ammos beach".
Villa Melia consists of a recently renovated main building where the studios & apartment are. The swimming pool and pool-bar is ideally situated to enjoy the panoramic views of the infinitive blue and relax in the peaceful environment.
It's the ideal place for a peaceful and relaxing holiday, a great chance to enjoy Greek hospitality and a promise to get to the essence of the Greek way of life.
Our family is here to welcome you and to ensure that you enjoy your vacation in Skiathos island.
