Located on the eastern side of Skyros, ALERÓ is a boutique resort that provides an unmediated experience of the spectacular coastal landscape, but also a calm and peace-filled refuge for its guests. Taking its name from the combination of the words Alas (Salt) and Neró (Water), the resort reflects how inextricably linked these two elements are to its beachfront location, Vina. Embodying all the typical Mediterranean characteristics of human-oriented accommodation, ALERÓ was designed by architect Stephanos Skandalis with simplicity and nature in mind. Built around a traditional Mediterranean courtyard, each suite is developed with its own characteristic style, while staying connected with the natural surroundings. Aromatic herbs, ornamental plants & fruit trees blend harmoniously with the coastal landscape, forming a natural continuation towards the land. The suites provide privacy thanks to their own yards, swimming pools, and fencing with ventilation holes – a reference to the island’s traditional architecture. Olivia Siskou designed the interiors with simple, discreet, and in sync with the Skyrian landscape details. Each suite features a painting inspired by the island, especially created by two artists, Akis Giousmis and Michalis Tsiougas. ALERÓ’s visual identity was curated by the Thessaloniki-based Blind Studio.
