Zorbathes is a peaceful valley which is hidden close to the centre of Skiathos
Island. It is green & fertile & surrounded by pine forests. Through the bottom of
the valley run stream beds whose banks are covered by an abundance of wild flowers &
ferns, & are shaded by massive plane trees. This end of the island, which is closest to
the Pelion Peninsular, receives a goodly amount of winter rain & the lushness of the
valley & the surrounding pine forests reflect this.
This is a place to truly relax in.
We have added a good size swimming pool for 2004.
|| The Farmhouse is recently built but in traditional style
using rock, wood &
stucco, natural slate & tiles. Internally we have laid floors of wood &
terra-cotta tiles. The cupboards & kitchen furniture are all hand made in pinewood.
Outside is a large shady patio of Pelion slate, with a barbecue, & a lawn with shade
from cypress, olive & fig trees. Creeping up the walls are bougainvillea, jasmine,
honey-suckle & oleanders. The patio is surrounded by pot-plants & flowering
The accommodation consists of a large, fully equipped kitchen, with steps
leading down to "The Snug" where the fireplace is situated. There is a bathroom
with bath & shower, & a smaller toilet with hand-basin upstairs. Downstairs there
are 2 double bedrooms & upstairs is another double bedroom plus a small, 1 person,
sleeping "loft" (ideal for a child). There is ample room for 1 bed to be added
should it be necessary for a large family or group.
We built this house for when one of
our daughters gets married & Lida has made it into a "home" rather than a
"rental". All our clients have commented on it's cosy feeling.
