Skiathos, Greek Islands
The Greek island of Skiathos is set in the Sporades, a cluster of islands which include Skopelos and Alonissos, and is well known for its great sandy beaches – some lively, others delightfully picturesque and peaceful – and its beautiful, green, mountainous hinterland. The entire coastline is dotted with pretty bays and coves whilst the crystal clear waters surrounding the island gently lap some of the most beautiful beaches in Greece, one of the most famous being Koukounaries, a fabulous expanse of sand with a backdrop of pine forests and where Travel One’s hotel is located. The island’s capital, Skiathos Town, is only 10 kms away from the hotel and offers visitors a huge array of shops, bars, restaurants and nightspots and is easily reachable by local bus or inexpensive taxi. The town also has an attractive harbourfront and a splendid yacht marina whilst inland the island is a carpet of green with lush pine forests and woodlands.
Hotel Sikathos Palace ★★★★
The Skiathos Palace offers fantastic views of Koukounaries Bay, the beach below and the pine-covered hills backing the bay. It really is
a breathtaking view with the azure waters of the Aegean Sea sparkling in the distance. The nearest tavernas and minimarkets are just 15
minutes away and the hotel operates a courtesy bus service to Skiathos town, just 10 kms away and a complimentary shuttle service to and from the beach.
Set in attractive gardens with picturesque views all around, the hotel has a lovely large swimming pool, a sun terrace with sunbeds and umbrellas, a pool bar offering drinks and snacks, a lounge bar, wifi access and a roof garden restaurant.
The hotel’s air-conditioned classic bedrooms are comfortably furnished and have satellite TV, telephone, a minifridge, a bathroom with bath/shower/wc and a balcony or terrace with sea view.
