Atsitsa, on the pine-forested western coast of Skyros island, offers a wide range of activities including windsurfing, yoga, art, music and much more. It's an ideal place to try something new and discover hidden talents. Atsitsa's lively holiday holidays - 30 to 80 people at a time - are friendly and bursting with life. Courses, facilitators, fabulous food and the beautiful environment are, naturally, all central to the experience. But for many, the real value and essence of a stay in Atsitsa is to be found in its rich community life and the opportunity to meet an interesting mix of people from all walks of life. Life in Atsitsa is informal and relaxed with a dress code to match. Skyros holidays have been described as 'the first and still the best' alternative holiday by The Guardian. The Sunday Times described it as 'One of the world's best holidays'. The holidays tend to attract solo travellers and single supplements are avoided as most guests take the option to share twin accommodation with others of the same gender and similar age. A huge majority - over 80 percent - report that the Skyros experience had a lasting positive effect on their lives. Even after they have said that Skyros was the 'holiday of a lifetime', nearly a third come back again and again.
