Hi Maria,Nikos & family Would like to thank you again for your hospitality during our weeks holiday/honeymoon. We all enjoyed staying with you and think that your appartments are lovely and service excellent. Maria, your cooking is out of this world, yum yum!! I made your calma salad for tea and the fruit yoghurt, nice but not as good as yours. We may try to come back in September but if not will be booking again for next June. Thank you again, Best wishes to you all Carolyn & Bob & kids, Room 17 x x x

Just returned from a week at the Prekas appartments. They are spotlessly clean and the site is well maintained. The rooms have air condittioning but we really did'nt need it as the trees shaded the room anyway as we were on the corner. There is a safety deposit box for hire which is very reasonably priced. The kitchen is basic but they tend to be in Greece anyway. There is also an hairdryer in the room which was handy. The pool was lovely and there were plenty of sunbeds available. The restaurant was lovely and the prices were no higher than down on the main street. The supermarket is just across the road and again we found the prices to be cheaper than the supermarkets further away. Maria and Niko and their sons were very friendly and did a lovely job of the complex. Julia the holiday advisor was very helpful and friendly, always had good tips and advice at hand. The bus sytem was brilliant and you could get anywhere without too much difficulty. The beaches are all within walking distances and are well worth a visit. Overall a good relaxing holiday. Would go reccommend these apartments to anybody.

I stayed at Prekas Studios alone, which was not the intention. I broke up with my boyfriend the night before. Maria and Nikos made a fuss of me and looked after me until my mum arrived three days later! The Prekas family is wonderful and they really made our holiday!

The rooms are basic and bathrooms just what you need in Greece. You dont go there to be spending your whole time indoors! The pool is big enough and there are plenty of loungers around to sunbathe on.

Maria cooks at the on site restaurant and the food is absolutely delicious! My mum and I did eat at other restaurants down the road and further along the coast but you know if you eat at Prekas then you will thoroughly enjoy the meal! The prices were comparable to other local restaurants and worth every penny!

we had our wedding and reception at Calma and it was certainly the 'best day of our lives' from the lovely setting to all of the added extras Maria provided .... it was just amazing. The food was really tasty from the gorgeous starters, through to the most amazing wedding cake. 26 of us travelled to Skaithos for our wedding and our guests are still talking about what a fantastic time we all had....... thank you so much.

If anybody is considering a wedding on Skiathos check this place out!

Hi Maria,
Back to the real world now and wishing I was by the pool getting ready to have my octopus salad and Mythos for lunch!
Mark and I just want to thank you both for being such great hosts. You have a lovely place and the restaurant is fantastic…the best food we had on the island!
You and Nicos made us feel so welcome. I especially felt like I had known you both before.
I can't wait to come back again…next June, I hope.
In the meantime, I'm telling everyone what great place you have and telling them to go and see for themselves.
Wishing you, Nicos & the boys all the best.
Barbara Wilson

Subject: Regarding comments for calma restaurant
We love Skiathos, the people, Greek food and way of life and return year after year. Nikos and Maria are lovely people and have worked hard to make the Calma restaurant such a success. This year it was nice to see Yannis, their eldest son also helping out. Maria cooks fantastic food and hubby Nikos is always on hand to assist (without a word of complaint). We highly recommend the Calma, whether it's for breakfast (we always have an English breakfast on Sundays), lunch, snack, a drink or a romantic meal. Nikos and Maria will make sure everything is just right for you look after whenever you visit. Nothing is too much trouble for them. Go and see for yourself. Down the road from bus stop 16.

Skiathos: Prekas Apartments : "Relaxing place to stay"
Jul 23, 2006 Sloggs , Leighton Buzzard
Having just spent a week at Prekas Studios on the beautiful island of Skiathos with my 16 year old son, I can thoroughly recommend these studios for a quiet, relaxing holiday.
Set down a quiet track, about 600 metres from the main road and just 50 metres from a supermarket which sells the basics for a self-catering holiday, this accomodation is perfectly situated for people who want peace and quiet, and also for those wanting a more upbeat holiday.
Nicos and Maria are fantastic hosts and their three sons a delight to talk with. The rooms are basic, but who spends time in their roon on holiday? The swimming pool is beautifully clean and the gardens well tended. The food in the Calma Taverna is mouthwatering and has the flavour of Greece through and through.
There are only 14 studios and 1 bungalow on the site, so there is no need to reserve a poolside sunbed. Many times, my son and I found that we were the only people in and around the pool because the other guests were at the beach - about a 10 minute walk away - or elsewhere on the island.
Sliathos Town is just a €2 bus ride away, and has numerous bars and tavernas, and a beaultiful 'old town' to wander in.
We even managed a day trip to Athens, which, although tiring, is well worth the effort.
We want to return to Prekas for many years to come.

Skiathos: Prekas Apartments : "Highly recommended"
Jul 12, 2006 BARNYARD , Lancashire, England
We would recommend a holiday at the Prekas, the apartments are clean and the owners Nicos and Maria very friendly. It is situated about 10 minutes walk to the main Aghia Pareskevi road. There is a mini market within 2 minutes walk, and a taverna/bar next to the Prekas called Calma, this is also owned by Nicos and Maria. The food is excellent, traditional Greek cuisine. We will be going back next summer

Skiathos: Prekas Apartments : "Brilliant Place"
Sep 6, 2005 A TripAdvisor Member , Newton Le Willows
A lovely quiet place. Nicos and Maria run a friendly, clean apartment block with good poolside bar with restaurant. Off the beaten track so no road noise (something many complained about). Safe for children. Can't wait to go back there.

Precas apartments, the BEST you could possibly want, very clean, comfortable (typically Greek) it's in the perfect spot, down a track, but just near enough to catch a bus or cab to Town. it's very quiet and relaxing We've been back four times, Nicos and family are possibly the nicest people I've come across, and the food in the taverna is the best on the Island, and trust me I've been to Skathos so many times I've tried most places in the Town. Go and try it for yourself, you wont want to go any where else!
Best regards
Hazel
