The Atrium Hotel is built into the hillside overlooking Platanias Bay. The most impressive vistas have been saved for the pool. It’s surrounded by a wooden sun terrace that has plenty of loungers that look out across the Aegean.
Meals are served in the main restaurant next to the pool. Breakfast and dinner are a buffet spread, while evening options include Mediterranean-inspired dishes and traditional Greek recipes. During the day, a vine-clad taverna serves a la carte lunches on the shaded poolside terrace.
Overview of Aghia Paraskevi
Skiathos is a small island home to a series of traditional towns and villages that are packed with personality. Most of the island is coated in pine trees and woodland that invites you to explore. So, get your walking boots on when you stay at the Atrium Hotel and hike through the rugged green landscape.
Rest and relaxation are usually the main focuses of holidays to Skiathos, though, so expect to spend most of your days lounging on the beaches, sipping freshly-made cocktails and enjoying the delicious cuisine in local tavernas.
Things to do in Aghia Paraskevi
A stay at the Atrium Hotel means that Platanias Beach is only a five-minute walk away. It’s a pine-backed ribbon of white sand, with clear, calm waters. There are also plenty of authentic Greek restaurants nearby for when you get peckish.
Thanks to the small nature of the island, it’s easy to access all the best attractions outside Platanias, too. The island’s only 12 kilometres long, so a bus can take you wherever you’d like to go. For streets steeped in history and plenty of British home comforts, head to Troulos, or if you’d like a boat tour, Achladies Bay is the place to go. Skiathos Town, the liveliest resort on this island, is also only a 10-minute drive away.
Skiathos may only be small, but it’s full of places to explore, towns to visit and beaches to unwind on.
