I really enjoyed Skyros and the Akakia house. It was just what I wanted, tucked away in the old town in the twisting lanes, but close to the little town and a 10 minute walk down the hill to the beach.

The house was newly updated inside, with fresh white walls and wood floors but still had all the original details like the great beamed ceilings that looked medieval (in a good way), the marble sink and the huge bowed fireplace. It was a perfect mix of original details with modern updates. The big kitchen was great for cooking and had a nice sized table and open space and the upstairs was nice and compact, with really nice, classy furniture and a great little balcony. It had views over the rolling hills. The bed was comfy and the AC kept it cool in the late day, but by night a lovely breeze blew in the windows.

The owners were incredibly nice upon arrival and emailed to make sure I was settled or had questions. It was a really great place and a really relaxing...
