Having stayed in 4 star hotels on Skiathos, Skopelos and Skyros in the last fortnight, our best hotel by far was the Nefeli on Skyros. The family suite in the new wing was a modern, cleverly designed cycladic style room with an upstairs mezzanine with a second doube bed. The view from the balcony looked up towards the town and derelict Skyros castro. The breakfasts were superb with home cooked little cakes such as chocolate biscuit and small home made omelettes. Unlike most Aegean islands, Skyros was little changed from when we went there in the mid 70s and the friendly, quiet local atmosphere predominates. The only problem is the shortage of restaurants close by; most of the time we needed the car to drive the 10 minutes to the few restaurants down from the town. Compared with the package tourism take-over of Skiathos, Skyros and the Nefeli were what we go on holiday for. If you have problems trying to book the Nefeli online, as we did, then you can book it through a Greek travel agent.
