A spacious house with a splendid view
The owner Nikos Koukakos is a friendly man ans ready to help.
We rent the villa for one week with our three grown-up children and their partners
and we have had marvellous week together.
You have space enough and a swimming pool for yourself …
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.. …
