AlkIstis apartments

Hi, does anyone know how far the nearest beach is to alkistis apartments. It sounds beautiful there. The brochure says the beach is 2.5 km away but does this mean the next main beach or are there smaller coves nearer? We are travelling with a 5 & 8 year old - is Skopelos and Alkistis suitable ? my children are very used to typical Greek holidays and quiet,laid back resorts. What are the prices like in Skopelos when eating out ? Any advice would be greatly appreciated . Thank you

Alkistis is great for children as they have a very large swimming pool. The pool has a large section of shallow water. The pool is open to the public and therefore has a nice mix of vacationers and young local people.

The closest beach is Staphylos which. if they say is 2.5 km distance, it probably is. Alkistis also runs a shuttle van between the complex and the town. There is a supermarket very close by.

For coves you need to go further along to the western side of the island.

The hosts are very nice and accommodating.

Check the restaurant reviews in this website for prices. It all depends on what you want to eat. A meal at the Perivoli is really special as is the traditional seaside taverna Pavlos at Agnondas.

Hey and welcome emma186466:-) I always hit the Alkistis when there to do some laps..and use their swim up bar;-)) Believe it's the largest inground pool on the island! I'd recc to get a rental..nice and convenient to get to all the wonderful beaches the isle has to offer on your schedule/major flexibility.. may also be a bit of a trek with the little ones otherwise nonetheless if looking to walk! The property is set amongst lush greenery..like the isle itself..beautiful;-) Take a look at www.skopelosweb.gr/ for some isle info.. Am sure you will all EnjoY!

You dont say when you are travelling but would def suggest a hire car to get around to the different beaches- although the bus does run along the coast road there is a walk to some of them and it usually involves a hill - and the buses can be busy returning to town. Driving is easy. Eating out in the town you have a choice of the many tavernas from high end to basic. But you also have places selling pizza, gyros, pies etc if you dont want the 'sit down'' eat-in' experience every night.

All you need to know about Alkistis is that when we went (for about the 10th time) last August over 90% of the people staying there were people who had already had at least 1 holiday there!
