Hi, we have flights booked for 21st July to 1st August. We have a one year old baby so would like a pool and be near to beach and fairly close to port. (a lot to ask I know!) if at all possible. We have travelled in other Greek Islands and feel accommodation here seems expensive.
Could anyone recommend self catering accommodation? We don't really want to hire a car as we are Considering visiting some of the other islands.
Hi Jeni & welcome. The ideal area would seem to be Megali Amos. However, pools in this area are few as far as I know. A much sought after accommodation would be Angekiki Beach studio apartments. No pool as adjacent to the beach. Skiathos town is another area being "at the port" however, a walk or bus journey to a beach. The Alkyon hotel has a pool, fabulous location & also right at the bus terminal. The Oasis has great reviews but very popular. Most accommodation in town are without a pool. Have you visited Skiathos before? There are 26 bus stops. Number 1 town to 26 Koukounaries. Think wider, Achiladies, bus stop 10. Water taxi to the port. Anastasia villas/apartments are seriously good. Koukounaries is also on a water taxi route to town. Lots of self catering with pools. Not stayed there so can't recommend. We stay at Theodora, Kolios. Bus stop fifteen. Look on booking.com. Very family friendly. Hope this helps
