About Myrto Issaris

Being a hospitality person I have been in the tourism field for 25 years.

I was born and raised in Athens, but since I always loved nature I managed to get my business out of the city.

Today I own a guesthouse on the mountains and spend my year either there or by the sea in Skyros.

I am generally a loner but have many close friends who often come to visit me with their families for some relaxing quality time at both resorts

I do a lot of handicrafts, gardening and repairing.

I love animals and have two Greek sheperd dogs.

Myrto Issaris purchased this cottage in 1997

Why Myrto Issaris chose Greece

I first came to Skyros for summer holidays with my family when I was 10 years old and completely fell in love with it!!!

I spent every summer holiday here and set my mind to have a home of my own one day.

I bought the land when I was 25 and started building it 5 years later.

It took a lot of effort to complete it and pay off the mortgage but it rewards me every minute I spent here.

It is simply my paradise on earth!!!

What makes this cottage unique

The house faces East (sunrise) and has an amazing view of the sea all around.

Cars do not approach it (they stop 70m bellow) so it is very quite and private.

The sun falling behind the rock of Skyros town in the evening provides the house with natural shade for all those long hot hours.

It is also being built at an elevation of 100m above the sea that brings sea breeze all day long.

These two factors ensure that you will have a cool, fresh and cosy stay!

You can reach the village's market and nightlife in just 10 minutes walk as well as the main sandy beach that is just bellow.

Thus you do not need a car and can have a few drinks more!!

The archaeological and folk art museums are just 150m away as well as some beautiful little churches for your afternoon walks

Last but not least the house is very simple in decorations and useless furniture so you can enjoy your holidays instead of cleaning!!

And it has a beautiful garden!!

Guestbook comments from the manager

Last summer we spent 10 wonderful days at Myrthos house on Skyros.

The booking and communication with Myrtho was very easy and helpful.

She was very kind and gave us a lot of informations about our arrival from Athens to Skyros.

She ordered us a taxi from the harbour to the house, where someone was waiting for us to deliver us the key and the house.

She also called us, to ask if everything was alright.

Thanks a lot for that, which was very comfortable for us, Myrtho!

The house is located at a wonderful place on the island. It is a typical house of the village in a central, but also very quiet place.

You have a wonderful view over the sea and the garden. In the morning you can see the sunrise.

Resting the the hammock or sitting on the bench was a wonderful place to relax.

The house was perfect for tree persons, because it has to separated bedrooms, both very nice, clean and with a view to the sea.

The kitchen and living room are open, nice and with all equipments, but because of the nice weather we spend most of the time on one the beautiful terraces/garden.

It is really perfect that you can walk into the village within some minutes to do your shopping or visit one of the nice restaurants.

If you want to go to the beach, it´s also within a walking distance, but the way back is a little bit steep.

The island is also in the peak season a quite and beautiful place in Greece.

Pity, for the people living there, that many people are afraid of the arrival which is a little bit longer.

But you will see a lot of Greece and meet many people, if you take the bus and boat to reach this typical island.

It´s easy to explore the island by scooter and there are a lot of sandy beaches without many people.

The little harbour also has some nice restaurants and is very lovely.

Thank´s a lot, Myrto for having a nice holiday at your beautiful house!

Good luck for you and many nice guests for the next years!

We lost out hearts

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely spot! We all lost our Hearts to Myrtos wonderful house as well as Skyros. The terraces and the wiew is outstanding. The architecture of the house and the decoration inside is beautiful. Situated in the outskirts of the lovely main town on the island Chora and easily accessible from the road (where you park) the location is perfect. There are lots of nice beaches on the Island. The food is excellent as the island is dominated by Greek tourist. We surely come back and warmly recommend this place to anyone who likes the authentic Greek atmosphere.

Skyros 2014

  • 5 of 5

Traumhafte Ferien auf Skyros! Die totale Erholung! Wir haben drei wunderbare Wochen hinter uns. Eine typische kleine Insel mit zahlreichen schönen Stränden und superguten Preisen. Wir wurden herzlich von der Besitzerin des Hauses empfangen und haben alle nötige Informationen und Tips von Ihr bekommen, die unseren Aufenthalt unvergesslich machten.

Wir können dieses gepflegte herrlich gelegene Haus am Hang mit den wunderschönen Blick nur empfehlen! Sind dankbar für die Entdeckung! Bestimmt kommen wir wieder.

Tolle Ferien

  • 5 of 5

Ein atemberaubender Ausblick auf das Meer und die nahen Strände. Das Haus gepflegt, sauber und sehr ruhig gelegen. Nur 10 Gehminuten vom Dorfzentrum wo man praktisch alles findet. Man kann zu Fuss zum Strand laufen (der Rückweg ist bergauf), aber es lohnt sich auch für einige Tage ein Auto zu mieten, denn es gibt einsame Strände auf Skyros die wir (dank Hinweisen der Besitzerin) genossen haben.

Es war einer der bessten Aufenthalte unserer Reisen in Griechenland. Die Besitzerin war so nett und hilfsbereit.

Wir werden bestimmt wiederkommen.

Landhaus in Skyros mit toller Aussicht

  • 1 of 5

Wir haben das Landhaus in Skyros vom 29. August 2014 bis zum 19. September 2014 gemietet. Die Aussicht auf die Bucht ist toll, zum gepflegten Sandstrand muss man ca. 20 Minuten den steilen Berg hinunterlaufen. Die Restaurants in Strandnähe sind für Fischliebhaber sehr zu empfehlen. Leider waren das Haus und die Einrichtungsgegenstände ungepflegt. Bequeme Gartenstühle haben wir auch vermisst, sodass das Entspannen auf der Terrasse kein großes Vergnügen war. Auf Grund unserer Erfahrung würden wir das Haus Freunden nicht weiter empfehlen.
