A Taste of Travel offers a pension like no other on a Greek island like no other. The island of Skyros has kept its traditions, crafts and lively carnival. The Aegean island has resisted the unbridled development that has plagued some of other Greek islands, cherishing its shores and beaches nestled in the turquoise secret waters — some of the most beautiful to be found anywhere. The Pension Karina is a traditional house with its courtyard covered by bougainvillea with its own orange and fig trees, it is divided into several sections maintaining its own charm of simplicity. There is no air conditioning or no TV here — everyone can enjoy the pleasures of companionship and has the time to submerge into a book.
