|Further details outdoors|
The three separate terraces of the Villa Nikko are furnished with ample sun loungers and tables and chairs for al fresco dining or drinks, however it should be appreciated to take advantage of the stunning views, Villa Nikko, is near the top of a hill and the terraces have a drop beneath, so in view of this we cannot recommend that parents of children under the age of 10 would find Villa Nikko suitable for their vacation. Likewise as the Villa is split level wheelchair users will also find the Villa unsuitable.
Short term breaks 3 days or fewer available in September and October
The Sporades/Evia region
Skiathos is the smallest of the Sporades islands including Skopelos and Alonissos still maintaining its ancient name and covering an area of 61KM square, with a permanent population of just under 3,900 inhabitants. The island has a very healthy climate with a comfortable summer and mild winters, the land is cultivated with vineyards, fruit trees.pine and fig tree's.
Its very easy to get around by bus or taxi, or you may wish to hire a scooter which is a very popular method of holiday transportation.
The Airport is 3km outside the town centre, ferryboats and flying dolphin vessels all arrive at the new harbour next to the central taxi rank, you can also arrange for inter- island excursions from the shipping offices, excursion boats offering day trips around the island are an ideal way to access the more remote and less well visited beaches, there is also a naturist beach (Banana Beach) which is popular with visitors.
Skiathos Island is a small enchanting corner of the Sporades Islands, that has remained untouched by mass tourism, and so retains its very local charm and ambience,with small whitewashed houses, cobbled streets in the main town and more than sixty fabulous beaches to choose from woth a backdrop of pine tree forests this island is a jewel!!
Skiathos Town is built with very traditional island architecture, and is quite delightful to explore, the town is the place of residence to most of the islands inhabitants, with many and varied shops for everyday needs and local crafts and gifts. The old and new harbours are awash with great restaurants, bars and nightclubs for dancing,but this is not a 'party' island and unreasonable behavior that may detract from other peoples enjoyment is dealt with very swiftly.
