Mythos Studios combine a peaceful setting with a nearby beach and walk-to bars and restaurants.
These studios are in a hideaway spot amid rolling countryside layered with pine trees. That said, they’re only 10 minutes’ walk from a sandy beach, and even closer to shops, bars and restaurants.
There’s a rectangular pool for swimming. And drinks and snacks come courtesy of a pool bar, which is also open in the evenings.

Spend the day lounging by the pool. Enjoy a relaxing swim, then soak up the sun on the surrounding sun terrace, which is dotted with sunbeds and parasols.
The Pool bar offers a list of refreshing drinks during the day. And happy hour during the evening.

Perfect get away
We stayed for a week in July last year and I wanted to put a quick review on here to help out those who might be considering staying at Mythos this summer. My advice would be - do it! It's a quiet setting with basic but very clean rooms. We didn't use the pool but this is also clean and pleasant. The nearby beach at Troulos is fantastic, as are the rest of the beaches on the island - there are so many to choose from! The best thing about Mythos is without doubt the owner, Stavros and the barman, Stathis. Both worked tirelessly and were so friendly. Nothing was too much trouble for them. The small bar area was a really sociable place to drink in the evenings and the food sold there was excellent. It's a limited menu but the pizzas are homemade from scratch and taste great and the Greek salads are lovely! All at very reasonable prices. If you're looking for a relaxing break away then this is a great place to put down your roots and either relax where you are, or, as we did - get out and about around the beautiful island that is Skiathos. You won't regret it. Thanks to Stavros and Stathis for making our trip so enjoyable! Neil & Alison More
Wonderful relaxing holiday
This is review from August 2014. I, like everyone else, read all the reviews about these apartments and then made a judgement. I decided that although the reviews then said ' no cushions on sun beds, bit of a trek, off road, hard to find short cut to beach etc.' I went ahead and booked and managed these expectations, I certainly don't complain about things I already knew about before I booked! I suggest you do the same. I had no regrets.The rooms were spotless, pool area great, pizzas yummy, Stavros and his team friendly. Good range of bar food and drinks. Everything you expect from simple Greek accommodation. So yes, the apartments are off the beaten track but we enjoyed the short walk when you've been lazing around all day. Sun beds were hard but nothing a few towels didn't sort or a lilo. Certainly didn't ruin the hols as we knew this from the reviews. What I must praise is Stavros and Jamie the Thomson rep who went out of their way to return my watch to me when I stupidly left it in the safe and returned home. I emailed Stavros and he actually rang me to say he'd look for it then again rang me to say that he'd located it. (Thanks for the next guests who were honest!) He kept it safe, as did Jamie who returned it safely to me in the UK. This I feel shows someone who cares about the reputation of his business and the customers who go there, who will go out of his way to help and I will be forever thankful to him. So in summary, if you don't want to walk to your apartment or to the beach etc. find somewhere closer to the resort centre. If you want comfy sun beds, buy a lilo first day or find somewhere else but if you do want a wonderful, restful break in a quiet, relaxed, friendly family run apartments then go ahead and book. More

Stayed at the Mythos for 2 weeks, its ran by a lovely family who were very friendly. The apartments are clean and I would say standard for greece, the pool area is nice and spotless but the sun beds definitely need cushions as you couldn't lay on them for long which meant we spent less time around the pool than normal also the pool is in the shade mostly by 3pm which for a sun lover was a bit disappointing and the kids pool was a little too deep for our daughter. Food at the bar was very good and was cooked until late at night which we found helpful. The location of the Mythos seemed to suit some people and not others, we found it great as we like walking and we like being in a rural location but we heard others say it was too far from the centre of Troulos. Troulos itself was a poor resort we felt, it seemed to lack any atmosphere or personality, whether that be lively or typical Greek ..it just wasn't anything and although the food was good in restaurants it was more expensive than the rest of the island. Overall a lovely holiday we would stay at the Mythos again if Troulos was better but Skiathos had much better areas to stay in.More

We stayed in this resort for 2 weeks from the 29th August. As previously mentioned the location of the hotel could be difficult for people who struggle with their walking, but for us was no problem at all. We found the apartments to be basic but had adequate pots and pans if you wanted to use them, however food was served at the bar and with so many good tavernas you don't really need to cook! Fortunately we had read the reviews and took lilos so we found the sunbeds to be no problem. However Stavros told us that he is replacing them all with comfy ones this winter. We found the pool and bar areas to be perfect for us. The pool was big and clean and the bar was well stocked and sociable Stavros and his team were fantastic and made us feel very welcome. We would have no hesitation in returning here next year.More

Quiet, friendly and a great place to stay.
We had two weeks at the Mythos arriving on the 29th August. As all the reviews have stated your luggage is taken from you at the airport and transported separately and the coach drops you off at the Christakis then its about a 10 minute walk through a field then up a concrete road to the resort. All this worked well and was all part of the fun. Going home was the exact reverse. Stavros and the team were great and couldn't do enough for you. His home-made food is really good and prices at the bar are reasonable.Towels/sheets are changed every couple of days and yes the apartments are basic but hey that's what you get in Greece. Beach is about 10 minutes walk away and some reviewers said they could not find the path , well all you have to do is ask and Stavros would have told you. Jamie the rep was also very helpful and around to answer any questions that we had. Troulos Beach is really nice but very busy and sunbeds cost 8 euros for the day. You have to get down there fairly early as the beds on the left side belong to the Troulos Bay Hotel and the residents get them for free ( I think). No more Germans or Russians putting towels on the Sunbeds this is all done by the English blue rinse brigade who are everywhere at this resort. The majority of people holidaying here are British and the resort has developed to cater for this. If you are looking for an authentic Greek holiday then don't go here. We hired a Jeep for a few days and travelled up to the north of the island where the beaches are more remote and less touristed which was lovely. A visit to Skiathos Town is a must as is going the airport to get blasted by the aircraft taking off. Great fun. We went in lots of the Tavernas and never had a bad meal. Our favourite was the Victoria because of its selection of food including curries made by a Bangladeshi chef ! Worst experience was in the nearby Sunrise Taverna where we waited nearly an hour and a half for our main course. Food in the Sunrise is amazing but the service was abysmal and the serving staff seem to be more interested in drinking that serving! All in all it is a great place to have a holiday. All the flights were great, Rep was great,Mythos Resort lovely and quiet.More
