Where to stay?

Hi guys,

Looking for a little help. Myself and my partner are going to Skiathos in early June for 2 weeks, but don't know where to stay. All the places in the brochures are made to sound so good, and as you know this is not always the case.

We are aged between 25-30, and are looking for somewhere beautiful, with a good beach, and something going on i.e. some tavernas, bars etc. We're opting not to go to Skiathos Town as it seems pretty easy to get there from anywhere on the island if we want a busy night.

Please, please help - what are your suggestions??

Well we were at Skiathos 3years ago and are returning this year very rare we repeat going back to a place but i loved the island so much the last time i knew i had to return.We are staying at Troulos again at the same apartments GREEN MEADOWS beautiful location as the name suggests in a green meadow so quiet and relaxing.Your first impression of Troulos there looks like there is not much there but you just walk down the dirt tracks off from the roads and you come across some of the best taverna you can imagine tradional greek hospitality and beautiful meals.Our hol for Skiathos has been booked from last April as soon as the hols come out because green meadows is a very popular apartments and booked up very quickly.Maybe the age you are Skiathos Town has more to offer you there is loads going on there and it is not full of rowdies i think Skiathos caters for couples more than families and it does not matter what age group you are.Troulos has a brillant beach but you will be spoilt for choice which beach is better than the other let us know where you pick.

Aselinos is a lovey place to stay. Not as crowded as some of the resorts on the south coast road. But it is still only 5 mins drive on the north side of the island across from Troulos - you would need a car though to get about. It only takes 20 mins to Skiathos Town. It is a stunning valley, very peaceful - Villa Angela is where we stayed in 2005. Or there are other accommodation around that area but not heaving with hotels. Look at my photos of Aselinos on my website www.clearspray.co.uk . Ag. Paraskevi from my personal point of view is getting a little crowded and at the moment there are major works to the road which are still not complete. Wherever you stay though, you will love Skiathos.
