It's high interest resort especially for papadiamantis fans. It's free of charge for students. It's shows the conditions that affected the writing style of papadiamantis. The lack of tourist's descriptions is a negative fact.

A fascinating insight into the Islands most famous export. Well worth the few euros for entry and a little insight into life on the Island in days of yore

Lovely little house hard to believe people lived there with so little comfort. Interesting but much of the written work had no English explanation so a little disappointing not to know what was written.

The very modest house in which the writer lived is worth visiting for a real glimpse into the life of a decent, simple family in the 19th century. It doesn't take long to visit, and it's well worth the admission fee.

Anyone visiting Skiathos must visit this house, more so if your a culture vulture, it is situated in the town of Skiathos and you will pass it whilst visiting the shops around here.

This a place that everyone should visit when in Skiathos. It's the home of one of the best writers that Greece produced. It's very near at the port of Skiathos and easily accessible to all who wish to see it. You can buy books of this author at very good prices in the basement of the house, which is really... More
