The space

With our 40 years of experience as architects in designing and development of tourist facilities in Skyros (Lithari, Pithari, Villa Madalena, Patriko and some others that are built now within the scope of European funding) in 1999 we built a little gem called Kochylia in Chora - which is the traditional car-free main settlement of Skyros just opposite of the church Agios Ioannis.

Kochylia are 5 independent fully furnished apartments of different sizes and equipment. The walking distance to the main place of Chora is 5 minutes.

Built in accordance with the strict skyrian rules of architecture and decoration, the apartments attract the attention of sophisticated and conscious visitor, who is willing to take a walk in order to enjoy the unique atmosphere of the traditional Chora and the location of the apartments.

Due to the absolute tranquility, the strictly traditional ambience and the enchanting view over the whole Chora up to the monastery, in the high season, there are no parking possibilities near the building.

However there is a steep concrete street available for transport as well as loading and unloading luggage. A private land nearby offers out of the high season 5 parking places for the neighborhood! The street requires a car with four-wheel drive. Long term parking is not allowed here.

House 2: for 2-4 people. (39m2) cypress green

Entrance courtyard (15m2). Small cafe table and director's chair, limited visibility through houses opposite
Ground floor (34m2): There are 2 rooms: 1 Living room with traditional sofa, fully equipped kitchen (stove / oven and fridge), bathroom with shower and toilet, cupboards, a wooden staircase to the open gallery (Sfa) with a skyrian wooden wallcover (Bulme), a traditional skyrian wall shelf, skyrian ceramics, copper plates, traditional skyrian chairs and a table and a fireplace and a small Sfa to store luggage.
Second Separate bedroom with 2 single beds and wardrobe.

Kostas was a an exemplary host. He even picked us up at the airport and drove ud to the ferry. He was helpful, kind and pleasant. The place was fine and the town and neighbourhood was very authentic and relaxed and perfect for a chilled holiday. The place is very central and close to everything in the city and also it is within walking-distance for a fine beach. Highly recommended. Michael

My friends and I spent three days of Halloween and thoroughly enjoyed a lot our stay. Skyros is so beautiful and people really kind. Costas was very prompt in replying to any queries beforehand, and picked us up when we arrived at the island. The house was cozy and traditional as shown in the pictures, and well located in the village,in a quiet neighborhood, just a 5 minutes walking distance from village centre with all the shops and bars. There was also a parking close to the house. The only problem was the bathroom that was really small and a little bit uncomfortable. Tha house did not also have internet at these particular days cause to a technicl problem, but it was not significant to us. Hope to visit Skyros again soon! We had great time!

We had a very nice stay at Kostas' place. He welcomed us very warmingly, with his lovely wife and son. The house is simple but well equiped, nice and cosy, and well located in the village. We recommend it!

Wir haben uns in der Wohnung sehr wohl gefühlt! Kostas war über Handy jederzeit erreichbar! Er hat uns von der Fähre abgeholt. Die Lage der Wohnung war angenehm ruhig ,der Weg zum Zentrum kurz. Es war ein super Urlaub auf Skyros!

Kochylia 2 empfanden wir als Wohnraum sehr skyrianisch, harmonisch, geschmackvoll und grosszügig. Gemeinsam mit der Aircondition bot die grüne Farbgebung von Türen und Fenstern ein kühl-angenehmes Intérieur, welches wir gerne und vielfältig benutzen konnten, wenn es draussen über den Mittag allmählich zu heiss wurde. So assen, lasen und spielten wir drinnen und in den Morgen- und späten Abendstunden draussen auf dem schönen Sitzplatz. Der Sitzplatz ist eingebettet in die engste Nachbarschaft und windgeschützt. Sehr gemütlich! Kochylia 2 ist ein wahres Bijoux, welches wir gerne wieder geniessen werden! Bea
