Villa Anna

Welcome letter

Dear summer guest,

Welcome! It is time you let yourself become our summer guest in an archipelago of philoxenia. Let us be your host. Home away from home, feeling exactly like home. Please find below useful information concerning your accommodation in Villa Anna. We are always at your disposal for anything more you may possibly need during your stay. Relax and enjoy your holidays to the fullest!

Home is where your Wi-Fi connects automatically. WiFi is available in all of our rooms and access is free of charge; you should only need to request your login details

Happiness is sand between your toes and a sunburn on your nose. To avoid having sand inside your room, our cleaning service is offered daily from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., apart from Fridays. Clean bedlinen and towels are offered twice a week according to our eco-friendly policy. Feel free to ask us for additional clean bed linen/ towels or cleaning service, if you need. Laundry and ironing service could be offered upon request.

Green initiative. Meeting your need is our priority. Achieving that and serving our environment is a distinction which we all take great pride in. Thus, if you feel that changing bed linen or towels is unnecessary, please place the card on your bed in the morning or hang your towels on the rack. If not, leave them in the bath washbasin. You make the choice. You make the difference.

If you think that you are too small to make a difference, try sleeping with a mosquito in the room. Thus, we offer you Korres mosquito repellents on the common grounds. In addition to this, all of our rooms are equipped with mosquito screens in order to avoid any insects’ inconvenience.

Sleeping well benefits the soul and rewards the body. Are you sleeping better on nature by cicadas’ lullabies? Just hang Do not disturb on the door and we will let you enjoy our comfy beds a bit more.

Open the windows and breathe the salty air. In case you need some fresh cool air inside the room, make sure you firmly close both sliding doors and windows, otherwise air-conditioning remains off. The air-condition’s remote control should always display a snow flake and a temperature between 18 – 25 C during the summertime. Allow 5 minutes for its full operation and let us help you in case of any inconvenience. Beware of the timer!

Live in the sunshine. Swim the sea. Drink the wild air. But please don’t drink the tap water; a cool bottled water is offered to you during your arrival welcome. Water is life.

Water is precious. Due to the island’s low water reserves, especially during the high summer season, the Municipality of Skiathos calls residents and visitors to avoid excessive and unnecessary use of the water. Thank you for your understanding and help.

Chase the sun and the sun will chase you back. Kissed by the sun, you could enjoy our comfy beds even more but we would be pleased if you avoided lying on them while still having your sunscreen protection on. Sunscreens may be water resistant but, unfortunately, our bed linen and towels can’t resist to them!

I found me under an umbrella by the sea. Let us find you the umbrella. Every room is equipped with a beach umbrella to take with you whereas beach towels are upon request due to a limited number.

Rain, rain, go away. Come again another day. Just in case of a rainy day during your stay, every room is equipped with a rain umbrella, too.

Between the pages of a book is a lovely place to be. Full of summer memories. Pick up -or leave- yours and read it by the sea. Just take care of the sand between the pages…Sometimes, summer memories are also sandy!

Do you keep alive the child inside you? Or next to you? Then, a toy box full of board games, puzzles, sketchbooks, coloring books, markers, color pencils and fairy tales is waiting for you -or our little guests- to enjoy.

A journey is best measured in friends, rather than miles. But miles don’t separate our rooms. Hence, in order to become friends with the guests next to you, please stay discreet and quiet and we will be here to reassure and protect all of our guests’ peace and relaxation during their stay.

Please do not throw paper towels or sanitary items in the toilet. We kindly ask you to use the bin provided in the bathroom.

Hospitality embodies the caring, kindness and thoughtfulness a host should show towards their guests. This is why, when staying at Villa Anna, all lights are on you. Please don’t do the same with your room lighting; simply check before leaving or going for your easy sleep. Sleep tight.

Take some green action and help us reduce, reuse, recycle any plastic, glass or paper. You could find recycling bins in your room, under the sink, or next to the open library at the front yard. Thank you for your participation in the initiatives that better serve the environment.

Congratulations for quitting smoking; at least inside our rooms. Smoking is not permitted inside the rooms but you can smoke in the balconies and on the outside premises, if you would like to.

Food feeds the soul. To the extent that we all eat food, and we all have souls, food is the single great unifier across cultures. But what would feed your island soul? Feel free to ask for our recommendations and we would be happy to help you with your reservations.

It’s not the gift but the thought that counts. Specially when the thought is green. A welcome gift is waiting for you for some quality beach & shopping time. By supporting A.S.A.P * (Active Skiathos Against Plastic bag) project, we offer you a 100% cotton back for your island days and, of course, as a summer souvenir back home.

Has your departure date arrived? We strongly understand that you would love to stay a bit more but please have in mind that check-out time is between 07.00 – 12.00 hours and check-in between 14.00 – 22.00 hours. We will be delighted to welcome you back again! Please ask us for a late check-out, always upon availability.

Your receipt will be issued on your departure day. Please let us know in advance if you would need an invoice. We are at your disposal for any further queries you may possibly have about your payment or about the additional “Overnight Stay Tax” (0.5 euros per night, per room) that has been applied since 1.1.2018.

It’s not the gift but the thought that counts. A souvenir is waiting for you on your way back home to remind you of your salty Greek memories. This summer, we would like to offer you the Salt Odyssey sea salt flakes, blending a prime sea salt harvested at the salinas of Messolonghi with the aromas of Greek herbs; a natural source of vital elements for good health and a rich flavor palette for the gourmet of this world!

For any further queries you may possibly have, please visit our FAQ webpage, contact us at +306978050683 (what’s up, too), send us an e-mail at info@villaannaskiathos.gr or just leave us a note and we will get back to you the soonest possible.
