There is a wide range of accommodation, to suit all budgets, available all over the island. Whether self-catering studio apartments, B&B’s or hotels, nowhere is more than 15 mins away. However If you’d like to stay close by, I can highly recommend several options in the Kolios area that are either just a very short walk away up the lane behind us, down near the beach or a little further afield (1 bus stop away) at Aghia Paraskevi.
The following establishments are the closest to Villa Nicara:
‘Diamond Apartments’ : http://www.skiathosdiamond.com (Contact: Soula)
‘Xanthi Studios’: http://www.xanthistudios-skiathos.gr/eng/index.html (Contact Matina)
‘Manos Studios’: http://www.skiathoskolios.com/en/accomodation/item/1-manosstudios.html (contact Manoli)
They are well-run, clean, comfortable and very reasonably priced. Rates currently range between 20 and 40 euros per night per person sharing a s.catering double room (depending on the time of year and length of stay). I can make a booking enquiry on your behalf or, if you prefer, you can book direct.
To view them or see other options in the area, click HERE (and don’t forget to mention you are coming to ‘Yvonne at Painting Skiathos’, in order to receive a discounted rate)
Evening meals are not usually provided at your accommodation but, if travelling alone, there’s no need ever to dine alone (unless you want to of course!). It is customary (although certainly not obligatory) to enjoy and share the evening meal in the company of fellow artist/guests (or with just myself and a few friends) at one of the many local tavernas nearby, or in Skiathos town itself.
All visitors to Painting Skiathos are welcome to enjoy the gardens, olive grove and swimming pool at Villa Nicara, as well as the art studio throughout their stay. (see more photos HERE)
*N.B. For wheel-chair users, movement around the house and grounds is severely restricted due to the split-level nature of the property (the house, gardens, pool and art studio are all on different levels and linked by a series of stone steps). There is however level and easy direct access to the Art studio itself from the side lane (which leads to the accommodation recommended above)
