vacations

In Greece, you are standing at a crossroads of cultures, colours and civilisations, you feel the strength of history and the warmth of being in the southernmost part of Europe, you discover an evolutionary process of thought, influence and experience.

A country that despite being rich in history has a populaton that moves towards the future.

A country that although statistically small, is huge in its diversity.

A landscape that has given us thousands of postcard images but remains incredibly vibrant and impossible to capture.

Greece is a country of beautiful contradictions, a constant journey in time, from the present to the past and back again.

Walk through the olive groves, through ancient sites. Move to clusters of sparsely inhabited islands. Roam from the beaches to rocky mountains and explore breathtaking scenery.

In Greece the fusion of images becomes more than imagery and turns into reality.

Explore your senses in Greece.

history of skiathos

    Skiathos took part in wars against the Persians and in 478 BC, became a part of the Athenian Alliance.Later was occupied by Alexander the Great and then by the Romans. In 1204 was conquered by the Venetians and in 1583 by the Turks. It was then that the inhabitants of the old town, built on the site of present-day Skiathos, abandoned it and constructed on the north side of the island the famous Kastro, perched on a nearly invisible rock.
    During the Greek War of Independence of 1821, many warriors from Thessaly opposite,took refuge on the island.Skiathos was liberated in 1823. In 1830, the local people, left the historic Kastro and rebuilt Chora
.
Skiathos was one of the unknown paradises to be discovered.       
Skiathos is one of the most beautiful islands in Greece. Upon first seeing it visitors must think: “how can such a small island have all this beauty?”. When you are getting to know the island, first of all, you have to pay a visit to its picturesque and cosmopolitan Chora.

During the day, you can enjoy a hanging around into its narrow alleys, which are filled with vitality every summer. Here you have a lot of things to see and to do. You can visit for example the lovely small peninsula Bourtzi, situated between the two harbors of Chora plenty of pine trees and the ruins of a wall of an old castle. Or you can visit one of the beautiful churches here, like the impressive Treis Ierarches, the cathedral church in the upper part of the town. You can either enjoy your lunch or your dinner in one of the fine tavernas. And for nightlife, be sure! Chora does not sleep until early in the morning! A large number of clubs, pubs, bars and discotheques are waiting for your night amusement!Text taken from Toubis Editions      visit http://achladies.apartments.googlepages.com
