Magda Studios and Apartments

Hidden out of the way but with everything within easy reach, the Magda Studios and Apartments have cornered the market in Skiathos for ultimate peace and tranquillity that goes hand-in-hand with a central location.

A beautiful complex with whitewashed buildings that overlook the simple yet pretty pool, all apartments come complete with a small kitchen for easy meal preparation. There are no food facilities to be found here and there’s not even a bar on-site, to maintain the quiet ambience, but everything is within a 10-minute walk, including the beach, bars and restaurants – and Skiathos Town is only 13km away.

Resort Summary

Koukounaries is named after the Greek word for pine cone, and it’s clear why from the hills around, which are absolutely brimming with firs. From Koukounaries you have easy access to the island’s capital, Skiathos Town, not to mention a truly breathtaking beach right on your doorstep. The resort curves slowly around to form a cove-like strip, complete with a small harbour where you can set sail around the island on your own personal vessel.
