There is no convenient public transit around the Fairyland villa, hence the guests need to rent a car. We usually welcome and receive our guests personally at the airport or the port of Skiathos. We help them with the car rental arrangements and lead them to the Fairyland villa.
Detailed description of itinerary to the Fairyland
The 'Anassa villa cites on the hillside, in the middle of the island, on a 400 m of altitude. Our guests need to rent a car.
They must leave the surrounding town road following the signs towards Panorama and Platanos restaurants and drive upwards on a curving cement road until they reach Profitis Elias Church, opposite Platanos restaurant. They keep going westwards untill they reach a sign at the cross point of three directions: Kastro-Agios Charalambos-Agios Antonios. They must follow the right direction, upwards, to Agios Charalambos and in 300m turn left on a cement private road that leads straight to the gate of the Dioni villa. The villa is only 4-5 km away from the Town/airport/port, Market and most beaches of the island.
