Facing the sea with its lovely coast line the house has so many nice areas, that it can be hard to decide where to sit. The house is far better equipped than described on the website, amongst other things you’ll find things like sun umbrella, electric torch and sewing kit. Our communication with Myrto, the owner was flawless, not only beforehand, when she made our ferry reservation, sent pictured directions to the house and gave a lot of tips, but also during and after our stay – thank you Myrto, you’re the perfect host! On arrival Sazan, a neighbour helped us with our luggage, showed us around the house and looked after us throughout our stay. There is a very nice Kafenion literally next door and the lovely Chora of Skyros and the Kastro are within 10 minutes walking distance. We’ll be back!
