We stayed in a studio on the top floor from 2-16 June 2008. View of the sea. 4 burners, oven and large refrigerator. Shame that there was a tiny temporary disruption of the hot water supply. You need transportation. The two dogs, that start barking each time someone passes, were annoying to us (my partner and I). At first we thought we would get bored with the island quite soon but there are plenty of bays, definitely within reach by scooter. The island is quiet, in the bays we were often alone. The roads are steep though. We enjoyed both, very different, parts of the island. Skyros is worth a visit. We must say that during the second week ('more crowded') it was more fun to go here. After 14 days we had seen it and were ready to go home. We heard that some people had been here 12 or 10 times. To each his own.
