We stayed at Skinos, for about the tenth year, I think, during June this year. It has become a firm favourite. Rooms still spotless, sea views perfect, close to the village (< five min walk), but just outside it, so quiet. As ever a very warm welcome from Manolis and Filio. Nothing seems to be too much trouble and it is nice to see friendly faces on arrival. I was recovering from a couple of weeks in hospital this year, and don't think I could find a better way than sitting on the veranda, in the shade, with a good book, and listening to the gentle 'splosh' from the sea a few yards away. There is also a small beach just two minutes walk from Skinos. I am returning for ten days later this month, looking forward to it a lot!

We drove past Skinos apartments on a day trip from a disappointing hotel experience in a more touristy area in the north of the island. As we past Skinos, I said to my husband “that’s the kind of place we were looking for!”. A few emails later we were lucky enough to book a first floor room for two nights, which we quickly turned into three. I wish we had spent the whole two weeks at Skinos!! It is perfect. Lovingly tended, happy helpful owners, spotlessly clean, idyllically positioned and a view to die for. Restorative! And incredibly good value. It was two days in before I realized there was no TV. With this type of view who needs it?! This is not your marketed, sanitized, package experience. If you want that, you’ve come to the wrong post. This is authentic, beautiful, Cretan hospitality. We sat each night on the balcony thinking about all the people, friends and family, we would love to come back here with and share this lovely experience. Don’t go anywhere else. Book here immediately! You won’t regret it. X

Happiness guaranteed at Skinos Apartments. A warm welcome from Filio, Manolis and the children that makes you feel at home even before you have started unpacking. The village and some wonderful tavernas are a mere five minutes' stroll away yet this location is absolute serenity. Quiet, but not isolated. As for the accommodation, it is spotless and well maintained. My wife and I had two excellent weeks at Skinos and we wouldn't hesitate in returning. If you were scoring it out of ten, I would award it eleven.
