Skyros (Greek: Σκύρος) is an island in Greece, the southernmost of the Sporades, an archipelago in the Aegean Sea. Around the 2nd millennium BC and slightly later, the island was known as The Island of the Magnetes where the Magnetes used to live and later Pelasgia and Dolopia and later Skyros. At 209 square kilometres (81 sq mi) it is the largest island of the Sporades, and has a population of about 3,000 (in 2011). It is part of the regional unit of Euboea.

Mouries farm is one of those places on earth where the people are so towards committed and warmed by other's happiness. The owner splits his time between running the Taverna and the horse farm - for the endangered breed of Skyrian horses. The Taverna serves traditional Greek food amongst a larger selection, with VERY generous portions. The staff may surprise you occassionally with some wine or a dessert you didn't see coming. What's more, you get to eat outside, underneath the shade of trees which, after a long day exploring the island in the Greek sun, is incomparably relaxing. For the kids there are rides on Skyrian horses for only 5 euros. The horses are just the size of ponies, and newborns close to the size of a large dog. A huge team of volunteers work tirelessly year-round to keep them fed, bred, and neighing happily. The money needed to maintain the herd is taken entirely from horse rides and donations. They have the biggest herd of Skyrian horses in the world (around 45) and considering there are only 300 of them in the world it's well worth a look even if you're not a horse-lover. Whilst there I met many people who have come back Mouries farm each year, and it's unsurprising. Sitting in the shadow of a mountain, sipping Greek wine, and looking on at miniature horses feels like the most authentic Greek experience imaginable, and doing it in such a peaceful atmosphere is even better.
