Since you have been you nice enough to visit and follow this website, I wanted to give you a little bit of background as to why I set up the website and what the goal is.
I first visited Skiathos in 2012. A big reason that we decided to go to Skiathos was my love of Greek Islands and my wife’s love of the film Mamma Mia!. We started to look into all of the things that you need to when you plan any trip. Before we looked at hotel and flights we needed to make sure that Skiathos was the right holiday destination for us. We found that to get all the information we needed we had to go from website to website. There didn’t seem to be one place that covered all the things we wanted to know about the island. I found this really frustrating.
The actual holiday was amazing and I could understand why people go back there year after year. The food, the beaches and the atmosphere of the island. Everyone we met was fantastic. My wife was pregnant at the time and everyone went out of there way to help with her cravings. She was also poorly while we were there. The treatment she recieved was excellent, you can find the full story here.
It has taken me two years and few more trips back to the island to finally take the plunge and start to share my experiences with other people. More than this though, I want to make a website that will be the best source of information about the island and also build a community that can help to offer advice to would be travellers to the island. With our facebook page we have started to build the community and already have some fantastic friends there that are helpful, talkative and happy to get advice to those in need. However, the website its self is still young and will take some time to reach our goal, to be the number 1 resource for information about Skiathos.
The reason you will find links to Olympic Holidays is because they are always my choice of travel agent when travelling to Skiathos or any other Greek Island. I have never been able to find fault with them. To try to make things easier for you, our accommodation and resort pages will link straight to the page on the Olympic website you need to be on for that exact location.
We Need YOU!!
To make sure that our website meets your expectations we need your feedback. I would like to know what you want us to focus on. As you can appreciate its takes a long time to write the content for a website. I already have a lot of ideas, but i want to be able to concentrate on what you want know.
Do You have a Business on Skiathos?
We also want to hear from you if you have a business on the Island. We would love to be able to provide our readers and friends with the best advice about all aspects of the island. If you would like us to feature you then please use our contact form to let us know.
A Big Thank You!
When I first started this website, it seemed like a pipe dream that It would be able to make a difference to people looking to holiday in Skiathos. However, the feedback has been amazing and it is what keeps me waking up early and staying up late to make it better. Finding time to keep adding content can be tough with a full time job and a young family, but it is you that make it worth while.
