Description from the owner
We built The Farmhouse in traditional style in rock, wood & stucco, natural slate & tiles. Internally we have laid floors of wood & terra-cotta tiles.

The Farmhouse, Skiathos
Skiathos, Aegean Islands, Greece
Additional Location Information
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. Our 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.
It is just 5 minutes drive from the nearest sandy beaches, shops and tavernas.
We are 15 minutes from the Airport and Skiathos Town.
There is ample private parking.
Available activities include all water sports, tennis, horse riding, hiking and cultural sight seeing.

What Past Guests Are Saying
The Farmhouse and Barn at Zorbades are quite simply delightful.
Set in a tranquil valley some 5 minutes drive off the Troulos / Asselinos road you will find the Farmhouse and Barn.
The first time you drive down the dirt track you may just wonder where you are going, but once you get there, you know you have found the perfect base for your holiday; for us, it really is a home from home. The Farmhouse is just as described in the 'blurb' but it's not really the amenities that you will rave about because many villas have similar, what they don't have is the location and the character.
Privacy, silence, nature, chickens, rabbits, shooting stars, Bbqs, laughter, quiet, relaxation, and cicadas are just some of the things that are likely to feature during your stay, as well as the usual fun around the gorgeous swimming pool. The other constant is Geof and Lida who are perfect hosts / owners of the properties. You should have no worries whatsoever about booking these properties as Geof and Lida will help wherever they can - meeting at the airport; luggage transfer; arranging car hire (essential). Nothing seems too much trouble for them.
We have stayed in the Farmhouse twice, most recently in July 2012, and we hope to return soon.
