When are you open?

For detailed info, you could visit our special web section Covid 19 | FAQs under Travel
Which are the hygiene protocols for the prevention and control of Covid-19 that you follow?
We are all, unfortunately, asked to adapt to a contactless hospitality concept, deeply contradictory to our principles but so much needed for a safe stay. We make sure that this summer, our health and safety are of a top priority. For detailed info, you could visit our special web section Covid 19 | FAQs under Hygiene Protocols
How far are you from the nearest port?
We are approximately 3 km away from Skiathos port which is about 10 min by car/taxi or bus. Villa Anna is also within walking distance from the port, which is less than 1 km when accessing via Papadiamantis pedestrian street, and about 10-15 min on foot. Walking to Villa Anna on your arrival day is something we usually suggest that our guests avoid due to the luggage carrying under the bright, and hot, Greek sun during the warm summer days

We are approximately 3.5 km away from Skiathos National Airport “Alexandros Papadiamantis” [JSI] which is about 10 min by car or taxi [unfortunately, there is no available bus]
Can you pick me up from the port/airport?
Absolutely! We always try to facilitate you during your arrival/departure unless there is a strong need to welcome you at Villa Anna, usually due to guests’ simultaneous arrivals. Please email us to arrange transfer details. Once we have confirmed your arrival time, you should only contact us (texting, calling, e-mailing) when approaching the port/ landing so as to avoid any possible delays. In addition to this, some days prior to your trip to Skiathos, you are going to receive an e-mail with informative maps attached so as to easily access Villa Anna when arriving
As a result of the Covid-19, we have temporarily suspended our free of charge shuttle services during summer 2020
What time can I check-in and what time do I have to check-out?

During 2020, check-in is rescheduled from 15:00 and on whereas check-out is latest at 11.00 a.m., completed outdoors. This alteration is mandatory in order to ensure that the room is thoroughly cleaned and disinfected, as well as its natural ventilation is adequate for next guests’ safe stay. In case we manage to do so -since reservations have been made before the Covid-19 spread, too-, the room will stay free on a 24 hours basis. If not, the room will be thoroughly cleaned and disinfected

Your receipt will be issued on your departure day. Please let us know in advance if you would need an invoice.
