THE REFUGE

Yoga
This is a different way of spending your holiday in Skyros.
Explore the island and enjoy an authentic Agro Tourism Holiday in a NATURA 2000 area of Skyros Island in the beautiful Aegean Sea.

The accommodation is situated on a traditional farm with an area which represents the highest value for natural habitats and species of plants and rare animals, endangered or vulnerable. The landscapes in these areas are characterised by their unique natural beauty. The farm is a good size with its own natural springs and a forest.

The Refuge stands alone on the side of a mountain, in a panoramic setting overlooking the valley of Kalikri, the sea and the surrounding mountains. It is an ideal starting point for discovering the beauty of the Natura 2000 landscape . Ideal for climbers as this is the start of the paths to the mountainous area. Even if there is mist, rain or snow in the winter, this is always a very welcoming and warm place to stay.

The Refuge and farm are owned by the family Sher and they guarantee a very pleasant stay in comfortable and traditional furnished rooms. The Refuge is built from natural materials such as wood and stones collected from the farm's fields.

They are traditional bio-farmers offering many activities, such as bee keeping, goats and sheep milking, feeding of the animals, cheese and yogurt making and nature observation. As well as authentic farmers' breakfasts and meals made mainly from their own bio products, there are the possibilities of climbing in the mountains with a guide and herb walking tours. They also hold barbeques.

The area is an ideal place for nature lovers and walkers. Children also have the opportunity to sample this way of life.
