    We are based on a small farm in a beautiful farming area which is near the sea, archeological sites and pine forest, on a traditional Greek island.

    We really look forward to hearing from you and thank you f.

    Autres infos...

    Skyros island is still very traditional, with an unspoilt wild beauty whilst also being very safe as everyone knows everyone. Farm life is basic, rustic, simple and far far away from modern conveniences. The farm is in a traditional farming area close to the beach and pine forest. There is a taverna in easy walking distance , and a wonderful ancient archaeological site next to the sea in 10 mins walking distance.
    The main village ( 16km away from our farm), is vibrant and very beautiful and traditionally Greek and has good access to internet, two museums and many good cafes and bars. There is limited public transport and if you want to explore the island especially off season the best way is walking , borrowing a bike , hitching or hiring a moped or car. We will also gives you lifts when we are going into the village etc.
