Home to Skyros Holidays on picturesque Skyros island, Greece, The Skyros Centre offers specialised courses including the renowned Writers' Lab, the Life Choices programme and, new this year, the Art Studio. Alongside these courses guests are offered options for early morning yoga and health and beauty treatments. Skyros holidays have been described as 'the first and still the best' alternative holiday by The Guardian. The Sunday Times described it as 'One of the world's best holidays'. The Writers' Lab, in particular, has received acclaim as 'No. 1 of the World's Five Best Writing Holidays' by The Guardian. The holidays tend to attract solo travellers and single supplements are avoided as most guests take the option to share twin accommodation with others of the same gender and similar age. A huge majority - over 80 percent - report that the Skyros experience had a lasting positive effect on their lives. Even after they have said that Skyros was the 'holiday of a lifetime', nearly a third come back again and again.
