Overview
Holiday Rental House -
4 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 6
Skiathos Town, Skiathos, Sporades
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.

Not a great deal more to add than other reviewers. The Barn is very relaxed and comfortable. The pool is great and although unheated is very warm in August. You need a car but are only a few minutes drive from Troulos for lots of...More
