We just got back from 2 weeks in Greece (one on Skiathos and another on Skopelos). Skopelos was exactly what I was looking for in a Greek vacation experience: an island that has not been too polluted by the tourist industry and has great beaches in a natural surrounding. In fact I found it far more attractive than Skiathos.
My experience at "Sofia Studios" near Staphylos beach was really "the icing on the cake," so to speak. For 60€, we had a renovated studio that had everything we needed: kitchenette, nice bathroom, perfectly functioning air conditioning, cable tv with 3 movie channels, and a great view from our terrace overlooking the ocean.
Another plus about Sofia Studios is that there aren't many units and the way they are aligned, it makes it easy to meet with other guests while still preserving your privacy if you prefer that. There is a very nice terrace at the end that has a table and bar area. We got together for informal cocktails with some of the other guests and it just made our experience so pleasant. Costas who runs the place is also extremely nice and helpful. The only drawback, and it's a minor one, is that the final walk up to the top of the studios is a bit steep. (I have a five-year old.) However almost every place on Skopelos is in this type of situation as many of the hotels are located on the hillsides just above the beaches. Also a plus: a supermarket, 3 restaurants and Staphylos beach just below. You can find Sofia Studios on [--].
It was exactly what we were looking for and I couldn't recommend it highly enough!
