Helpful and friendly

Never having been to Greece before we had lots of questions, we booked this last minute and felt we had a bargain. The hosts Christos and Anne Marie are amazing, nothing is too much trouble. It Is very laid back, clean and efficient. The pool and bar area always orderly and spotless. The food was a revelation, fried zucchini is incredible and the bar is well stcoked. Loved the book swap collection! The room was basic but clean and comfortable and we loved our balcony. The hill is quite a climb but you can get taxis if you dont fancy the walk every day. Local bus takes you easily into Skiathos Town and there are plenty of restaurants within walking distance if needed. Anne Marie and Christos make it though, they offer advice, serve food , offer a welcome and even see you off! Thanks so much.


Great Visit

We visited Filia for the first time 2 weeks ago and had a wonderful holiday…From check in to check out it was a breeze, Ann-Marie & Christos are the best hosts and will happily oblige you with all your holiday needs from directions, advice on all the best spots to visit on the island, Car and Quad bike hire etc. Both Christos & Ann-Marie work their socks off making sure your holiday goes by without any hitches, above all they are both really nice genuine people who really care about their guests and business, I would advise anyone wanting a relaxing time with a bit of humour thrown in to visit the Filia, you will not be disappointed we certainly wasn’t. P.S try Mama Filias moussaka it’s the best…..

Fantastic stay with friends

This was our second time in Troulos and we tried to book the place we stayed in before but it was full and boy are we glad it was! This place is absolutely fantastic and breaking the habit of a lifetime we will be back here again. Cristos and Anne Marie are fantastic hosts who know how to give people a great holiday. Situated on a hill it has fantastic views of the bay, close enough to the main area but far enough for it to be beautifully peaceful. A good sized pool with plenty of beds around it. Excellent music played throughout the day with something for everyone.A well stocked bar with good prices and generous portions. Excellent food available throughout the day at very reasonable prices, the breakfast is very filling and great value but there is plenty more on offer. Rooms are very good, furnished in a typically Greek way and kept clean and tidy throughout our stay. Our balcony was very large with a great view of the bay, ours was room 2 and our friends had room 1 and theirs was equally as good. Can recommend the bbq night and sunset trips which are organised by Cristos and Anne Marie who work tirelessly to make your stay as good as it can be.The hill is not a problem for any reasonably fit person and there is a less steep and challenging route for the less able. It’s also a great place to make friends as everyone seems to mix in and get along but you can also do your own thing with no pressure to mix. We will be back.

Fantastic as always!

Just returned from a visit we sadly had to cut short, but our third year at Filia and it just gets better. Instant relaxation, fabulous welcome, great food around the bar in the evening if you want to stay in, wine and view is one of the best in Skiathos and you have it all right there. Lovely, very clean pool area. Some of the rooms have been upgraded (new kitchen area in ours). Highly recommended – and trust me, I only write this review yearly after we have a confirmed booking for the following year!


Wow ! What an amazing place

What can I say that hadn’t already been said ? As a first time visitor to Filia I was a little worried that as there are so many repeat guests it may be a cliquey, not at all . Everyone was so welcoming, making room at their ever expanding tables to accommodate new guests . Filia is probably the friendliest place we have visited .Its atmosphere oozes relaxation, the views and Mama’s food are are amazing …. I especially loved the lamb. We joined in their sunset and Greek nights arranged by Ann-Maris and Christos, both great evenings with amazing company and food, Ann Marie takes great photos which she is kind enough to email out to all her guests. But no pressure to join in if you prefer not to .

Mentioning Ann-Marie and Christos they couldn’t do more to make your holiday just what you want it to be, just ask ! Lovely lovely people , when they dropped us off to catch our coach to return home big hugs and a few tears are shed.

I could go on forever, in summary, lovely homely and relaxing , great guests, fab views, “the hill” isn’t so bad at all and amazing hosts.


Rest, Relax, Razzle n Dazzle, Repeat

Well, who could resist a return to paradise? Not me….
Last week of the season was still open for business and I couldn’t wait to get back
Food – plenty on the menu, even though our Mezze night got messy it was all self inflicted. It’s hard to resist wonderful food accompanied by a good Gin!!
It was good to get around and see some beautiful sites all within walking distance – Aselinos Beach and the Monastry.
Town was a short ride away on the bus and was nice to shop around to plan for a surprise party for Ann-Marie.
Ann-Marie and Christos as always, best hosts on the Island go out of their way to make your holiday the best it can be.
We partied a canny few nights away to the hot hits playlist carefully crafted by Ann-Marie. Even managed to get them off site to join us for a night down Skiathos Town.
Thanks again Team Filia #yourock!!
