Skamnos Review

Part ski hotel, part mountain lodge, this cozy retreat offers the best views plus some luxurious perks. The family-run hotel has been around for two decades, but many of its nooks are renovated and fresh. The guest rooms feature wood ceilings, darkly hued furniture, and fabrics ranging in tone from peach to rust. Alluring accents include antique mirrors and fireplaces. The contrasts of winter are most dramatic, especially as you watch the snow fall as you sit in the heated inside pool or outdoors Jacuzzi (extra fee). For breakfast, the owners whip up delicious omelets and wait until you try the homemade bread! For an extra fee, treat your muscles to a massage at the in-house spa. Prices drop significantly in the off-ski season, when the region still offers plenty of hiking, mountnain biking, and sightseeing opportunities.
