Skiathos Island holiday lettings for your own Greek adventure
Rent yourself a Skiathos apartment and explore the stunning beaches and topography of this glorious island. Famed for being the location of the film Mamma Mia, the island is one of the most verdant ecosystems in all of Greece. The pretty Old Town is a delight, the food is divine and you can explore the rest of the archipelago easily with a ferry.
Food and drink in Skiathos
There is no shortage of excellent places to eat on the island of Skiathos. The fresh seafood is divine and the excellent use of fresh ingredients brings the simple flavours of fish, meat, vegetables, and olive oil to life. Amfiliki is a fantastic taverna-style venue serving meat grills and plenty of seafood specialities – the cold skate being a particular favourite. The taverna also has an excellent range of Greek wines. For those on a budget, the barrel wine and the more affordable wines are of a very good standard.
Ergon Cafe is a deli selling Greek produce which doubles as a delicious gourmet cafe. Their three-course menu is not only delicious, but is also excellent value for money. Alexandros Restaurant is a traditional venue which offers foreign dishes as well as local ones. Finally, Bakaliko This Paralias is an old-style greengrocer where you can go to sample a variety of eclectic Greek specialities.
Getting cultural in Skiathos
Besides the beaches and natural beauty of the area, there are more than enough cultural activities to keep you busy outside of your Skiathos accommodation. Looming above the port, you'll find the streets of the Old Town. The charming churches and plazas are intertwined with some noteworthy attractions, including the Galerie Varsakis antique shop and the Folklore Textile Museum.
A couple of kilometres drive from the Old Town and you'll reach Evangelistrí – the island's oldest and most magnificent monastery. Apart from the religious buildings, there are also some interesting documents and photos of the role Greece played in the Balkan Wars. Kástro, on the north of the island was the first fortification to protect its people against pirates in the 16th c. Today you can explore its ruins for free.
Exploring the other islands
Compared to the rest of the archipelago, the Sporades Islands are quite unique and have a more natural and rugged feel to them. They are also much less developed and get fewer visitors. The most famous are Alonissos and Skopelos, which are both easily reached thanks to the regular ferry services from Skiathos. Both have their own styles and quirks. Alonissos has stunning sea caves where sea lions make their habitat – though they are difficult to spot. Skopelos is famed for its picturesque architecture with no less than 160 churches to admire.
