Hi we are a family of 6 adults and a 5 year old looking to book Skiathos Repos Villas our concern
is the basement, does it have windows?
I doubt that there's no natural light, but why not contact the owner and ask?
Many thanks I have emailed the owner now
We stated at Skiathos Repos Villas about 5 years ago. We loved our time there - the villas (there were 2 side by side) were beautifully furnished - lots of space and the outdoor areas were gorgeous. Each villa had its own pool - and lots of shaded outside areas for sitting. At that time, the basement in our villa was not finished - there was a door leading downstairs to it - we had a look down there but it was just bare concrete at that time. From memory - but I could well be wrong - I think there were some small windows and skylights to allow natural light - but I don't recall there being (normal/large) windows. However best to check with the owner as you have done - I may be wrong or it may have changed.
As to the other question as to whether you need a car...... I think you really do need a car. You could certainly walk down the small road to Aghia Paraskevi - and get a bus/taxi from there - but it would be about 10mins walk to there. You pass some apartments and tavernas on the way down..... maybe some of them have a small shop where you could get drinks/supplies but I don't recall anything. Its pretty isolated (and lovely for that) but I would feel a little stranded if I didn't have a car.
