The Sporades/Evia region
The Spordaes islands, that get their name from their sporadic or uneven distribution, are the perfect holiday desitnation. With yellow sands and crystalline blue water of the Aegean, deep green woods and vegetation, the mixture of peace and cosmopolitan entertainment makes for a glorious holdiday. There are also spectacular sea caves to visit and you can bask in the glorious Aegean sunlight.
The island of Evia was once part of mainland Greece and is in fact the largest Greek island after Crete.It is a beautiful island to visit with some beautiful beaches and lush vegetation.
Their classic Greek architecture, natural beauty and good entertainment of these islands have been attracting tourists to these beauty spots for a while now, so that you never feel out of place.
Skiathos is a beautiful wooded island, which is lush and green, with beautiful beaches. There are many beaches that are not crowded, and some which are more or less empty, even in the high season. We would recommend a car or moped to find them, which we are more than happy to arrange for you.There are several offshore islands which are accesible by boat, and some beaches on the island itself which are only accessible by boat in secluded coves under spectacular cliffs. There is one town on the island, Skiathos Town, a thriving cosmopolitan town, where you can find all manner of nightlife; a slow drink in a taverrna, a bite to eat in a restaurant, or clubbing if that takes your fancy, but is easily avoided if it does not.
With its varied landscape, peace and quiet, sandy beaches, cosmopolitan centre, beautiful cuisine, and warm hearted, friendly people, Skiathos is the perfect holiday destination!

"Beautiful views, quiet location, lovely holiday"
The villa is perfect for large groups as you can all meet at the pool (perfect for 6 teenagers) or on the large terrace, but it also has separate accommodation so everyone can have their own space. W… More

"Lovely relaxing holiday"
Have just returned from a lovely holiday at villa aquarius. From the outset everything went smoothly. Any questions I needed to ask were responded to quickly from the owner Nikos. On arrival in Troulos we gave Nikos a quick call and within a couple of minutes he had met us by the shops to escort us up to the villa. He showed us around and had even supplied us with a welcome pack which included a bottle of wine, couple of beers, couple of colas, milk, bread, eggs, ham and cheese. Unexpected but gratefully received. We did not have much need to call on Nikos while we were there but if he saw us as we passed he would always stop and chat and on one occasion when he saw that I had just returned from a walk up the mountain he told me that he had some mountain bikes that we could use if we wished.
I would say that the use of a hire car would be a great advantage as walking up the hill each day could become tiresome (5 minute brisk walk or nearer to 10 mins at a leisurely pace) and if you were to do it in the dark then you would definitely need a torch. We were very lucky with the weather and it was lovely to have breakfast on the large patio outside. As we were only a party of 5 we did not have access to the downstairs accommodation but this did not hinder us too much. There was always plenty of hot water for showers when getting ready to go out of an evening.
We would definitely stay here again if visiting Skiathos in a large group.

"Amazing view, great villa"
The villa has an amazing view on the sea, it's an ideal place for large groups, where you can spend time together without bothering your neighbours.
It also had a pool, whic is a plus if you have children or just would like to chill, considering the fact that the beach is not really close to the villa (20 min by foot or 5 min by car). The good surprise was separate bungalows included to the villa, which is great for couples or small families who'd like to spend time a bit by the own.
The owner is a very welcoming person, who always helped us if needed something in particular.
Our group spend a week in this villa, and we could stay more :)

"Beautiful villa in lovely surroundings"
The owner of the propety met us with a warm welcome and brought us freshly picked tomatoes from his own vegetable patch. The villa was clean and airy with all modern necessities. The villa is surrounded by beautiful plants and trees. The views from the balcony are impressive and captivating at night. Troulos beach is a 15 minute walk as is the nearest bus stop however we rented a car to enjoy drives to nearby monasteries and other beaches. The best experience was enjoying the pool any time we liked as they were also lit at night.
