About the property

Our small complex Skyros Kochylia is open all year and consists of 5 apartments of different size and amenities. All apartments are built in traditional island style and located in the traditional car-free main settlement of Skyros, just opposite the church of Agios Ioannis.

Kochylia, 5 minutes walk from the central square of Chora, which are 5 independent fully furnished apartments of various sizes and facilities.

Built in complete compliance with the strict rules skyrianischen of architecture and decoration, they attract the attention of discerning and conscious visitors who like to take a walk in purchase to enjoy the unique atmosphere of traditional Chora and the location of the apartments.

This enjoyment of absolute tranquility, the strictly traditional ambience and enchanting view over the entire way up Chora monastery, of course, have a price: There is no parking next to the building.

Nevertheless, there is a steep concrete road available, but that requires a car with four-wheel drive and an immediate Umparken for transporting and loading and unloading their luggage. In case you do not arrive by car, we are happy to take delivery and collection of their baggage

Here is some more information on Skyros:

Skyros is an island whose history extends far into the mythological era where there are the first signs and instructions.

Theseus, Lykomidis, Axill and Neoptolemus are persons of mythology, which are inseparably connected with the history of the island.

The Neolithic period, the classical period, the Roman and subsequently the Ottoman domination to piratical invasions, all this has shaped the island, a living room with archaic roots, which still live in traditional customs and practices.

In the two museums on the island, Folklore and Archaeological Museum, there are many documents and monuments of this important past.

Skyros is the largest island of the Northern Sporades island complex and is characterized by a unique landscape feature. The northern part of the island is rich in dense pine forests and agricultural land in the south there is a pastoral landscape with dense shrub vegetation, in addition to goats and sheep also the unique skyrianischen Pony offers a refuge of rare beauty.

Probably the most picturesque part of the island is without doubt the Chora, the capital of the island, with its, an amphitheater and arranged houses, nestled on a 179m high cliff. On the top of the rock is the old castle, from where a unique view of the large blue Aegean Sea offers. Noteworthy is the design of the castle, as it is only accessible from one side, all the other 3 sides falling steeply towards the sea, and so provided a natural fortification against enemy attacks.

Next to the castle is the monastery of St. George, who is the patron saint of the island and from where, unique views for visitors offers.

Of all the beaches of the island offer some very distinct aesthetic beauty. On the north side there is the beach of Atsitsa, Agalipa, which is accessible only by boat, Agios Petros, Gyrismata and Pefkos. The south side is waiting for and Kolymbada with the long beach of Kalamitsa.

The crystal clear water, the clean and translucent sea bottom in connection with the beauty of the scenery entice the visitor to feel at one with the splendor of creation which spreads before him.

Hübsches, kleines Häuschen, schöne Lage

  • 4 of 5

Das kleine Häuschen Kochylia orange liegt sehr schön: 7 Minuten Fußweg zum Zentrum von Skyros Chora und 7 Minuten hinunter zum Strand Paralia Magazia Beach. Das Häuschen ist sehr klein, bietet aber auf 2 Ebenen für 2 Personen genug Platz zum Schlafen, Wohnen, Relaxen. Bad und Dusche sind sehr klein, ebenso die Küchenecke. In der Ausstattung der beiden hätten wir uns ein paar Utensilien mehr gewünscht, die mehr Comfort bieten würden.

Es fehlte leider an einigen, für uns wichtigen Haushaltsgegenständen in Küche und Bad. Es wäre schön, wenn da an der Ausstattung noch nachgebessert werden würde. Im Ganzen war es für uns eine sehr schöne Urlaubszeit in einem wundervollen Ort. Wir können Skyros und die Unterkunft Kochylia wärmstens weiter empfehlen. Für uns blieben (fast) keine Wünsche offen. Herzlichen Dank auch an die Gastgeber Herr und Frau Raptopuolos, die uns freundlicherweise mit ihrem Wagen von Linaria abgeholt und bis zur Unterkunft gefahren haben. Dies war bestimmt nicht unser letzter Aufenthalt auf der Insel Skyros.

Vacances à Skyros

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé une semaine très agréable dans la location orange de Kostas. Acceuil du proprio à l'aéroport et il nous a raccompagné au ferry à la fin de la semaine. La maison de type traditionnel de Skhyros correspondait à nos attentes. Deux gros plus, sa situation dans le village et sa terrasse sur le toît d'où on a une vue sur le kastro. Mercià Kostas.

We stayed for 4 nights in this lovely appartement. Our friends stayed in the Ocean blue appartement, which is a little bigger.Each of us had one child with them. The orange one is better for very little children, cause the stairs are not so steep. Both appartements are furnished in a beautiful traditional style. Everything was clean.

Spectactular views from the balconies. Kostas is a very friendly host and picks you up, where ever you arrive on Skyros. It is a 10 min.walk into the beautiful lively "city" and about 15-20 min walk, down a little hill to the sea. We all enjoyed our stay very much and hope to come again. Jassas, Milena & Jan
