House | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 7
The Barn is so called because it originally started it's life as a place to store hay & grain for our horse, donkey, goats & chickens. However, as we gradually switched our source of income from animals and an organic garden to providing accommodation for those looking for peace and quiet, we slowly converted the Barn into the modern house which it has now become.
It is surrounded by fruit trees, oleanders, Virginia creeper, vines & flowering shrubs. There is a large shady patio & another sitting area under the shade of a large pine tree.
We have incorporated as much wood, terra-cotta & native materials as was possible during the conversion & it has developed a distinctive character all of it's own.

"An oasis in the island of cool"
We stayed at zorbathes in the summer of 2012 - a family of 4 with two boys 6 and 10.
The island has something for everybody - from the party beaches on one coast to secluded cast away coves on the other. The beaches are fantastic whatever flavor you want. Some great restaurants with amazing views and history you can touch in the monasteries and old fort - we had some really memorable walks out to these places and through the cool pine forests and over baked cliffs.
The best thing about this holiday, however, was Geoff and his wife and their first class villa and pool. The kids absolutely loved the pool and many an early morning and lazy afternoon was spent splashing around here with the adults reading books and taking the occasional dip. The villa is really first class in terms of layout and cleanliness.
Geoff and Lida are so accommodating - Geoff greets you at the airport and sorts the car hire - basic provisions,water,wine, home-made honey, jam in the villa on arrival and fresh home grown veg provided from time to time throughout our stay.
Equidistant from each coast this is the perfect place from which to explore the island.
The best thing though is the quality of the accommodation and the proprietors.
Thanks for a great holiday - highly recommended.

"Very comfortable and well equipped house with a beautiful pool."
We stayed at this property and the Farmhouse for two weeks during the last week of August and first week of September, 2011 with our extended family (10 of us) for our son's wedding on Skiathos. The properties were perfect for us as there was plenty of space for the adults and small children. The pool was fantastic and the barbeque area beside the pool was lovely. Zorbathes is situated in a very peaceful area and not far from some lovely beaches and supermarkets for provisions. Geoff met us off the plane and organised our car hire for our two families which was a huge help after the flight. We all had an extremely happy time on the Island and would love to go back..

"The farmhouse is a gem on an exquisite island."
Geoff couldn't have been nicer, or clearer about how to get around on Skiathos. I loved the house the kitchen, and all the separate rooms. We swam everyday, and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The teenagers and I bonded when we would come home after a long day to our secluded oasis. Everyone got to relax, and just enjoy being alive. The markets and beaches are not to be missed. I will definitely come back to stay. Just counting the days.
