Where you’ll be

Skiros, Greece

Location
Villa Manolia is situated less than 1km from the island's long sandy beach, Molos, with beachfront restaurants and beach bars, and around 9km from both the airport and the ferry port, Linaria.
Skyros town, Chora, with its maze of white-washed streets and flat-roofed Cycladic houses is a 10-minute drive away. The town is perched upon a rocky hill with a Venetian fortress and Byzantine monastery at its summit. It is a 30-minute steep walk from the villa for those wishing to take in the beautiful sea views. The town has lively cafes, restaurants and bars, a bustling town square, traditional and boutique shops selling local ceramics, carved furniture, jewellery and clothes.

About Skyros
Skyros is the largest of the Sporades islands at 209 km2. The north of the island is dominated by rolling hills and pine forests, the south is bare, rocky and sparsely populated. With a population of only 3000, it is steeped in Greek mythology and folklore. The grave of Rupert Brooke, an English poet who died on a hospital ship off the coast of Skyros during World War 1, can be found on the island. It is also home to the diminutive Skyrian pony, one of the rarest horse breeds in the world. Traditional delicacies include locally produced honey, lobster spaghetti and organic goat dishes.

Beaches: There are a variety of beautiful sandy and pebbled beaches catering for all tastes. More secluded beaches can be reached by car or by hiking. Many of the beaches have delicious tavernas; alternatively, there is picnic equipment in the house.

Boat trips depart daily from the modern port, Linaria, reaching secluded beaches and sea caves inaccessible by road. Scuba diving is also available from Acherounes beach.

Supermarkets: there are numerous well stocked supermarkets, butchers, bakeries, a wine merchant, ice cream parlours as well as local road-side stalls selling local organic produce. A number of restaurants also do home delivery.

There is a medical centre on the island, several banks and ATM’s.

Museums/culture: Both Manos Faltaits, a private museum housing Skyrian costumes, furniture, ceramics and photographs and the Chora Archaeological museum are found in Brooke square.
The archaeological site of Palamari, a prehistoric settlement dating back to the Bronze period can also be found on the island.
