The Farmhouse is located in the peaceful valley of Zorbathes. We have built and furnished it more as a home than as a standard rental. It shares a pool with one other villa.
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.

We leave our guests alone to enjoy the peace and quiet of our lovely valley, however, we are always available to help in any way or to advise on how to enjoy the best of this beautiful Greek island.
Zorbathes is a peaceful valley which is hidden close to the centre of Skiathos Island. It is green & fertile & surrounded by pine forests. Through the bottom of the valley run stream beds whose banks are covered by an abundance of wild flowers & ferns, & are shaded by massive plane trees. Our end of the island, which is closest to the Pelion Peninsular, receives a goodly amount of winter rain & the lushness of the valley & the surrounding pine forests reflect this.
It is just 5 minutes drive from the nearest sandy beaches.
We have a good size organic (salt not chlorine) swimming pool (12 x 4.5 metres).
You will need to hire a car as the nearest beaches, shops and tavernas are around 35 minutes walk but only 7 minutes drive away. We can arrange this if you wish.
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.
It is situated in its own grounds providing complete privacy.
The guests have their own private courtyard & lawn, and access to the pool which is shared by only one other villa.
We leave our guests alone to enjoy the peace & quiet but are always available to point out all the wonderful beaches and places of interest on the beautiful Greek Island.
In July & August, we take our bookings from Friday to Friday with a minimum booking of one week. MHTE: (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN)
We expect our guests to respect the villa and the surrounding peaceful environment. Smoking is only allowed outside the villa.
