Guestbook comments from the owner

I stayed with my family at Antigoni Apartment on Skyros Island, last summer. I still remember the sea breeze coming through our window and the wonderful moments we spent, while sitting out into our private veranda and admiring these great sea views. The long sandy beach right below was perfect for our little daughter, who spent hours there making sand castles.

We will definitely come back and recommend this place to anyone!

Stunning Sea View Holiday Rental On Skyros Island

  • 5 of 5

Being a frequent traveler to Greece, Skyros and particularly this quality holiday rental / serviced apartment it is now my secret holiday paradise! Staying here, you can get the best sea views and you will wake up to an amazing sunrise! Such a convenient location, the long sandy beach right below can be accessed in just a few meters walk and the nearby beachfront taverna, cafe place and other facilities are in easy reach within the traditional settlement of Magazia. The bonus is that you can also walk uphill to the old town as it is not far and enjoy the village life. The very friendly manager and staff of the apartment will look after you and make their best to experience Skyros like a local (which I really like doing when I visit other countries). I highly recommend this great place for family, couples or solo-travelers

Highly Recommended Vacation Rental On Skyros

  • 5 of 5

I highly recommend Antigoni Apartment as the best quality and affordable vacation rental on the island of Skyros! So handy for the long sandy beach of Magazia, right below and a short walk to the old town. Friendly, personalised, efficient service. Look forward to go back soon!

Antigoni

  • 4 of 5

The pictures of the Antigoni don't do it justice. The apartment is perfectly situated facing the quiet end of Magazia's beach. Access to the beach and town is so easy too, with small local supermarkets within 5 minutes walk. I have been to Skyros many times and this is by far the best place I have stayed.

The property was clean, tidy and spacious enough for the 4 of us, Nothing was too much trouble for the staff Katerina, Martha, Teddi and her husband, who joined us for drinks and a chat most afternoons. I didn't expect 2 balconies which was a nice surprise as my children were also able to enjoy the sunrise.

The Antigoni is great for families and couples alike. We were lucky enough to be there at the same time as some other incredibly friendly and warm holiday-ers also passed through, enjoying their second or third visit to the apartments and they welcomed us like old friends!

I would recommend the Antigoni to everyone, despite wanting to save it as my own secret hideaway.

A great place to stay on a hot beach location!

  • 5 of 5

Antigoni Apartment is a unique place with stunning sea views and spacious accommodation. The staff is very friendly too and you get the home feeling all around the place. I highly recommend it to families or couples for the beautiful, long sandy beach right below, the nearby seafront tavernas and the visits to the historic old town of Skyros.

I wish I will holiday on Skyros again, this summer!
