This was our first trip to Skiathos and the La Piscine Art Hotel, but it won't be our last! Prior to travelling we read the on-line reviews and were slightly skeptical that anywhere could be as good as this hotel appeared to be...But how wrong we were! This is simply the friendliest, most relaxing and welcoming hotel we have ever visited - and we have travelled far and wide. From the moment we stepped into the cool Reception area, Olga, Vera and the whole team made us feel special- they did everything they could to make our stay memorable and enjoyable; nothing was too much trouble.
The Hotel is immaculate, furnished with lovely and often amusing paintings and pottery; the general ambiance is of total relaxation and calm, while romantic dinners at the candle-lit Crazy Cow restaurant completed many hot, sunny days. For the record, the breakfasts were superb too with a wide range of hot and cold dishes available as well as fresh fruit and cereals. Eating around the pool was another special start to the day ahead.
Skaithos is a beautiful island:verdant and picturesque with lots of fabulous beaches. The Hotel is 10 minutes walk away at the most from Skiathos Town which has many interesting shops and amazing places to eat. If you want to do any research before travelling, read anything by Victoria Sandels who was also our guide on an island hopping trip which was fascinating.
We had a fantastic week - so much so that we intend to return, breaking our golden rule of never going back! Talking of which: we were treated royally throughout - just as well as returning guests.
Thanks to all, especially Olga and Vera. A bientot (don't know how to say that in Greek!).
