Refresh, relax, and rejuvenate, when you stay at the restful Villa Saltskin, situated on the north coast of the Dodecanese Greek island of Kos, in the heart of the Aegean Sea. This eco-friendly modern villa has one double bedroom, and can comfortably accommodate up to four guests, ideal for a small family, or a couple of friends sharing. Villa Saltskin is part of a small complex of six luxury properties that are surrounded by nature, reflecting the earth’s delicate ecosystem. Combine this back-to-nature ethos, with warm Greek hospitality, and a relaxing ambience, for the ultimate escape from the madding crowd holiday.

This one-storey villa is set in impressive tropical gardens, populated by mature tall palm trees, local plants, and colourful seasonal flowers. The villa is surrounded by an immaculately manicured lawn and has its own private heated swimming pool. Villa Saltskin benefits from charming views of the nearby Tigaki beach and the azure blue of the Aegean Sea. The villa has been designed to embrace ethical luxurious living with modern-day amenities, including complimentary Wi-Fi and air conditioning throughout, and state-of-the-art technology. The interiors are furnished with hand-crafted pieces made from locally sourced natural wood, and the villa is decorated in a cool palette of crisp clean whites, creamy beiges, and subtle earth tones. A stay at Villa Sunkiss includes the use of the communal “Platia” facilities, where you can meet fellow guests at the bar, improve your whiff whaff with a game of table tennis, whilst your children enjoy the dedicated playground, then dine off local delicacies grilled on the barbeque, as you settle down to watch your favourite film at the open air cinema. And for those of you who enjoy a sun salutation, there are regular yoga sessions hosted on the lawns.

Enter the villa to discover a holiday home of light and airy open-plan living, with floor-to-ceiling windows that open onto the terrace, and flood the space with lots of natural light and cool sea breezes. The seating area has a large white sofa, that transforms into a sofa bed to accommodate two guests, a wooden coffee table, and a built-in flat-screen smart television, with Sonos surround sound. The stylish kitchen is fully equipped with everything you will need to cater for a happy holiday, including an oven and hob, a fridge, and that must-have Nespresso coffee maker. A rustic wooden dining table and matching chairs is the ideal spot to meet over breakfast and plan the day ahead. The spacious bedroom has a large double bed, wardrobe, a flat-screen television, and sliding glass doors that open onto the terrace; perfect for rolling out of bed and into the pool for a refreshing dip. There is an ultra-modern bathroom, with a walk-in rain shower, hand basin, a WC, and complimentary eco-friendly toiletries.

The white tiled terrace has a centrepiece ladder entry swimming pool, with a built-in platform that is home to a deep cushioned double sun lounger, imagine dipping your toes into the cool water, whilst relaxing under the summer rays. There are two matching single deep cushioned sun loungers on the terrace and a soft seating area that is an ideal spot for serving cocktails as the sunsets. A small summer kitchen is perfect for preparing drinks and dinner and then eating alfresco at the dining set nestled under the shady veranda. Lush green lawns and tall trees surround the terrace providing plenty of shade all day long.

Villa Saltskin can be found in a luxury eco-friendly complex, set in nature with beach and sea views, on the north coast of the beautiful island of Kos, in the heart of the Aegean Sea. The villa is a seventeen kilometres drive from the international airport and just twenty minutes to the capital town of Kos. The island of  Kos is the third largest of the Dodecanese, with a one hundred and twelve-kilometre-long coastline, populated with family-friendly beaches, and crystal clear waters.

Villa Saltskin is within walking distance of the fashionable tourist resort of Tigaki, where you will find sandy beaches, beach clubs, water sports, bars, cafes, and restaurants, as well as shops stocked with all the provisions you will need for your holiday. Kos is known as the bicycle island, with more than ten miles of cycling lanes, enjoy a scenic sightseeing tour on two wheels. For those who like a bit of activity, you’ll be spoilt for choice with hiking the many walking trails, swimming and snorkelling azure blue waters, kite and windsurfing, paragliding and scuba diving, and horse riding and mountain biking. A trip to Kos town, the capital of the island is a must. Situated on the northeast tip of the island, it’s an eleven-kilometre drive away. Here you will find a mix of the ancient, medieval, and modern, as you wander through historic streets you will see the Castle of the Knights of St John, Greek gymnasiums, original agoras, and Ottoman mosques. Neratzia Castle is an imposing fortification over Kos town, whilst the Roman Odeon is just outside. Visit a restored replica of a fifth-century BC house in Hippocrates Garden, and sit under the plane tree, where the father of modern medicine reputedly swore the Hippocratic oath.

Make your way to Eleftherias Square, the town’s meeting place in the centre of Kos, where you will find the Archeological Museum, stuffed with artefacts from the island’s history. Or enjoy the simple pleasures of some homemade meze and a glass of retsina, as you watch the world go by. For somewhere more traditionally Greek, visit some of the lesser-known villages, go south to Kefalos, and wend your way around the labyrinthine alleyways to the Folklore Museum, swim in the azure sea, then dine on freshly caught seafood at the old port. Take to the mountains to see the village of Zia, a tiny village on Mount Dikaios, and walk the cobbled lanes with its blue and white houses, and shops for souvenirs of handmade artefacts. Not far from the villa is the Alikes Wetland Reserve, where fresh and saltwater meet to form a lagoon, which attracts migrating flamingos and pelicans. Take a tour and visit one of the many vineyards, where you can sample the wine, and take a bottle or two home with you.

If you are feeling adventurous, island hop from Kos to the adjacent Dodecanese destinations of Kalimonos and Pserimos. Go even further afield and board the ferry across the Aegean to the ancient town of Bodrum in southwest Turkey. In the evening if it's nightlife you’re after, go into Tigaki for some cracking karaoke, and Greek-themed dining, and dance yourself dizzy to some rocking DJs. Or go into Kos town for some serious all-night clubbing and beach parties.

There are lots for your kids to do and see when you stay on the island of Kos. Starting with your own private pool, and as there are no set hours when it’s your own, they can splash and play all day. When you stay at Villa Saltskin your kids can enjoy the added value amenities of the communal Platia, which includes a children’s playground, a ping pong table, and an open-air cinema, where you can all watch your favourite films alfresco. There are lots of local beaches offering kid-friendly facilities for some fun in the sun swimming and snorkelling, beach sports, jet skiing, and banana boats.

The nearest beach is Tigaki, famous for being family and child-friendly, with shallow crystal clear waters and easy entry swimming in the sea.  Take a short drive to the village of Mastichari, where there is a large open-air Lido Waterpark. Open during daylight hours, it has something for all the family, of all ages, including multi-lane, rubber, and pitch black slides, a space bowl, a lazy river, trampolines, beach volleyball, a superb wave machine, a dedicated kids’ area, and a swimming pool with a jacuzzi, as well as sun loungers, and cafes and bars. In the nearby town of Marmari kids can earn their go-faster stripes at the Go Karting Centre, a five hundred metre track with some tight corners, a spectator area, and a café, plus it’s open until 10 pm.

Take a trip around the island to discover the local history, art, and architecture of the ancient ruins along the way. There are ready-made tours or hire a car for a family fun day out and about. Discover the island’s flora and fauna with walks and hikes, or swim out to Kastri Islet, a one-hundred-and-fifty metre shore-to-island challenge. Saddle up and ride your pony with horse riding lessons at the local stables, or for your more advanced junior jockeys, go for a gallop across the sands.

Travel overland in a 4 x 4 Land Rover on a full day around the island Jeep Safari, go off-road, visit traditional villages, experience panoramic sea views, and stop for lunch for homemade meze at an old-fashioned Greek taverna. Well worth a visit is the ancient settlement of Antimachia, with its Milos tou Papa windmill, and Venetian castle. For an adventure on the water, all aboard a family day out at sea, charter your own caique, or join a pirate ship and search for the treasures of Kos, swimming and snorkelling in the turquoise waters of the Aegean Sea.
