Brochure Guide


Having paid several visits to the port area of Skiathos during onward bound trips,I have found Skiathos to be a very lively and interesting port. Move away a short distance from the buzz of the harbour front and find some tiny cobbled back streets leading to an ancient clock tower, some tiny tucked away restaurants and a shady walk up to a bar with a view. There are plenty of places to relax and eat or drink or just watch the yachts along the waters edge.

Katsarou is not an actual resort, it is a beautiful area with stunning views and plentiful open space and olive groves.

Katsarou review

"Skiathos "

As Katsarou is not a resort, I have based the above entries on Skiathos, which is situated a short drive away from the hotel. Whilst there are plenty of shops, cafés and restaurants, I would recommend hiring a jeep, as opposed to a car, as this gives you the flexibility to explore those areas of the island accessible only by dirt track - Kostas is happy to arrange car/jeep hire for you, which saves a trip into town. Be sure to visit Evangelistria Monastery - there is a regular bus service from town if you don't have a car.

Katsarou review

"hilltop location outside Skiathos Town "

resort to a friend

Open quote

Great location for our accomodation as it allowed us to have relaxing and chillout time in the natural surroundings away from the hustle and bustle of the town. And with the hotel shuttle buses to the town and beach, the option was always there so we could choose which we wanted. Anatasias can be 100% recommended for food and drink in a great scenic location. Like stepping back in old time Greece.

"quiet area with lovely views and walks"

Open quote

A quiet country side with lovely walks in surrounding countryside beaches can be reached via a short walk about 20 mins or so the hotel bus can take you down town where local buses can be had and for a few euros other beaches can be reached.

Katsarou review

"Quiet peacful location"

100%

resort to a friend

Open quote

Katsarou is in an elevated position up a steep and winding hill from the main road.

It is a quiet and peaceful location with the most amazing views across the countryside and to the sea.

There are a few hotels in the area and some holiday villas/apartments but little else.

A car or access to a hotel minibus is essential.

A very quiet resort. Unfortunately we went too early, beginning of May and not everywhere had opened. I wouldn't go at this time of year again, it was too quiet for me. I have stayed in Skiathos before but went later in the year,June, and it was very lively.

Katsarou is not a resort, just a lovely place to see the views, walk and relax. The beach is down a steep hill, the walk down is ok but the hotel shuttle is great for getting back.

Skiathos Town is pleasant with some nice shops and a busy harbour to while away an afternoon. The island boasts dozens of beaches, get to as many as you can and wonderful scenery. We have visited Skiathos several times and think it is the most relaxing, beautiful island in the med.

Katsarou is up in the hills of the main road, so is nice and quiet, often with a gentle breeze. Just a few hotels and restaurants and some nice walks.
