Great find apartment, perfect position in Plakias away from the centre but close enough to walk into if desired. We rented the penthouse which was mainly for the view (30 approx steps from entrance) parking was at the rear of property which was very convenient. The roof terrace was very large with the sun hitting it around 10am until evening...

We chose to stay at Skinos apartments because of the positive reviews on tripadvisor. We were a bit disappointed and hope that describing our experience might be helpful both to potential guests and to the friendly couple who own Skinos, in helping avoid misunderstandings about what the apartments have to offer. As other reviewers have said, the apartments are in...

Superb venue, most friendly run apartments, most welcoming towels and sheet changed every two days, always hot water, 30 feet from the sea. 7 minute walk into town which has many many tavernas, did not find a bad one.View from the balcony is fantastic looking over the sea. Sunshine from about 8 in morning til sunset

Unfortunaly we only booked 4 nights. I would have been more than happy to stay there for the remainder of my holiday. Manolis and Filio go out of their way to make your stay one to remember. Very personal and warm welcome.

Absolutely nothing at all not to like about Skinos. I can't say how much I like both the apartments and the hosts. The location is perfect, just outside the village, so nice and quiet, beach a few metres away, lovely sea-views over the Libyan sea looking south, but many excellent tavernas within 5 mins walk. Rooms are so clean; seems...

The location just 5 min walk to the west from Plakias is great: beautiful view over the ocean, the beach just a few steps to reach, very good restaurants and minimarkets are close. Manolis and Filio are very kind and nice,...

This was our first visit to Skinos and what a treat. We booked the top floor penthouse and it is truly beautiful. Enormous balcony overlooking the sea. Table, chairs, sun loungers and best of all completely private. The property is family run and Manolis and Filo are great hosts. The property is very clean and there is a small beach...
