Sugar-cube-shaped houses snake up the hillside towards a Venetian castle in Chora, the main town on Skyros. Here, you’ll find plenty of the top hotels on the island, overlooking the sparkling Aegean Sea – plus, there are a few further afield, too. Book your stay at one of these hotels in Skyros now with Culture Trip.

If you’re looking for a quieter Greek island retreat, then Skyros is the place to book. Secluded beaches, a byzantine castle and endless hiking trails are among the highlights here. Chora, the island’s capital, is one of the most beautiful towns to visit on the island – and home to many top hotels. Bed down in one of these accommodation gems while you’re here.

To help you really get to grips with the landmarks, beaches and folklore of Skyros, the friendly folk at the Ammos Hotel have put together the Remap Skyros list specifically for the island. No surprise there – they really want you to make the most of your stay. The hotel itself is on the eastern side of the island, 60m (197ft) from Magazia Beach, and offers 21 stylish rooms, delicious local dishes and a saltwater pool.

Just a stone’s throw from the beach and a 15-minute walk to Skyros town centre, the 27-room Perigiali Hotel is perfectly placed for exploring. Take a dip in the pool before indulging in a traditional oil pie, with fluffy dough and Skyrian cheese, for lunch. For breakfast, there’s a buffet-style feast with local thyme honey, homemade marmalade and a vast array of cured meats and cheeses.

Roll out of bed in the morning, and spend a lazy day on the private beach at Vina Beach Hotel in Skyros, with free sun loungers and umbrellas. The hotel boasts a number of traditionally decorated self-contained studios; some of the split-level ones have a fireplace for those colder winter months. Stroll through the beautifully manicured garden, or hang out by the pool. Come nightfall, it’s just a short walk to the nearby tavernas.

4. Nefeli Hotel

The Nefeli Hotel in Skyros is made up of five different buildings, with a large pool at the heart of the complex. It boasts superb views of the castle, and you’re just a five-minute walk from the town centre. Choose between rooms, apartments, suites and villas, many of which come with hydromassage baths. Two suites even have their own pools. There are bikes available if you want to scoot around the island, and the restaurant serves organic food from its own farm.

The Angela Hotel in Skyros is 2km (1.2mi) outside Chora, but it benefits from peace and tranquillity. On top of this, beautiful Molos Beach, on the northeast side of the island, is only five minutes away. The hotel offers 14 double and triple rooms, all of which have their own entrance. Expect a laid-back vibe, huge pool and barbecue set up amongst the lush gardens. The seafood restaurant Psarotaverna Estiatorio O Stelios is close by – go for the lobster pasta.

6. Lykomides


Perched right on Linaria port, the Lykomides comprises two buildings overlooking the small but pretty harbour. It has 13 double and triple rooms, but families can stay in the separate Amyra apartment, which can host up to five people. At night, take a stroll around the harbour, which is lit up by atmospheric submerged lights. In the summertime, you can soak up the atmosphere and watch a play or movie in the open air or sip ouzo by the sea.
