A Greek island of the Sporades in the crystal clear waters of the Aegean Sea
Skiathos island is the smallest of the four Sporades islands next to Skopelos, Alonissos and Skyros.
The shores of Skiathos are embraced by more than 60 picture-perfect sandy beaches and impressive rock formations.
Nowhere in Greece, you will find more kilometres of beach fun per kilometre of coastline.
From sunrise in the East till sunset in the West, you will enjoy discovering one beach after the other. From large party beaches to private hidden treasures – for each his own.
Condé Nast Traveller included Skiathos as THE island for flopping onto a sandy beach in the list of Best Greek islands to visit in 2021.
Rock that beach
Green pearl walks
Walkers & hikers as well will have the time of their life in Skiathos.
Its nature is abundant and green throughout the year: the forests carry the scent of wild mint, oregano and thyme. A climb to the antique ruins of the castle in Kastro is definitely worthwhile: the eagles' nest with the mighty stronghold flies high above the violent waves that crash into the sharp rocks below, as did the pirates trying to invade the island centuries ago.
On the way back, ancient olive orchards and monasteries around the island paint a perfect background for the breathtaking sunsets Skiathos is famous for.

Town & old port
The production of the 2008 box office hit Mama Mia! brought stars like Pierce Brosnan and Meryl Streep to the island and showed the romantic charm of the island to the world.
The old harbor town is heaven on earth for shopping aficionados and fans of authentic restaurants and trendy cocktail bars. The maze of narrow alleys and cosy squares is always filled with pleasant crowds, and in the shadow discovering the many shops & stalls is a true delight.
If you would choose to enjoy a freddo cappuccino on one of the many lovely terraces overlooking the harbor – and you should – you will find the spectacular view completed by the many colorful fishing boats and luxury yachts that float around in the warmth of the Greek sunshine.
From Mandraki to
In the pure and unspoiled West of the island lay the Mandraki natural reserve and some of the most beautiful beaches of Skiathos, like Elias Beach, Mikro Aselinos Beach, Ligaries Beach and Kechria Beach.
All our villas are located in the same area: Kechria. The frontal sea view overlooks the spectacular bays of Mandraki in the South, while in the West the most amazing sunsets paint unforgettable colors over the sea and the Pilion peninsula.
The main road of Skiathos connects the crowded beaches at the East coast of Skiathos, where most mainstream tourists spend their time. That’s why you will get the most out of the unique location of the villas with a 4×4 Suzuki Jimny as your travel companion. Exciting rides through the forests and olive orchards bring you to beaches that remain hidden gems for most holidaymakers.
