The Skyros Centre Retreat

Loved Skyros in summer as your perfect chill-out & getaway from it all? Well, now the Skyros Centre on Skyros island, Greece, is open through winter too – an ideal venue to get some personal space and recharge your batteries.

Fancy finishing that novel, painting, contemplating, meditating or beachcombing? According to writer Patricia Highsmith, author of The Talented Mr Ripley, if you can set aside a writing day without interruption, you can be 30% more productive. The Skyros Centre can provide the perfect environment with just the right balance of support and seclusion.

The twin and single occupancy rooms at the Skyros Centre are comfortable, warm and homely. Relax or research in the library with high speed Wi-Fi internet, TV and DVDs. Join us on on a b&b basis or enjoy our eclectic vegetarian friendly menu and add on half or full board if you wish. Plus we’ve various styles of massage therapy designed to invigorate or relax.

Enjoy the benefit of the moderate temperatures (average 12-18 degrees C) and explore the island on foot, by car or mountain bike. Discounted off season rates on car hire are available with pick up direct from the port, Linaria, or Skyros Airport. Regular direct flights from Athens to Skyros island and more new low cost flights to Athens mean off-season travel can be very cost effective.

Come and enjoy the peace, serenity and inspiration of beautiful Skyros island in winter and springtime. In March, take the opportunity to observe and involve yourself in the rich Skyrian culture during 'Apokries' the Skyros Goat Festival, or in April join the Greek Easter celebrations, such a special time to be in Greece. The Skyros Centre is open as a retreat until May when the full programme of Writer's Lab and Life Choices programme recommence for the summer.
