“Peace and comfort makes us return.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 November 2012

We have returned to ioanna's Studios each year for the last 8 years. It is a magnificent place to stay, 5 minutes walk above Limnionas Bay and great for a quiet holiday.The 6 studios are kept immaculate by cheery Ioanna and have marvellous views looking over the bay, backed by massive Mt Kerkis.
The atmosphere is as peaceful as one could wish for. The silence has a quality never achieved at home and the scenery is stunning.
The well-designed rooms are spacious with plenty of storage and seating. Each studio has a terrace with sea-views, surrounded by mature gardens. Everything is kept superbly clean by Ioanna, who has decent English, with a few personal quirks. She is always very helpful, e.g. for hiring cars or booking taxis, and has a great sense of humour.
The mini-market run by Evangelia is very close and convenient, staying open until early October. There are 4 tavernas within a 5 minute walk. We prefer the Limnionas Taverna (Restaurant) by the beach for both it's food and the idyllic situation. Angelika and Dnitri are efficent and friendly, and the food from chef, Ari is excellent.
The beach is shingle and the water especially clear and clean, reputedly fed by underground watercourses from the mountain.
Most people hire cars but we rarely do, preferring to walk or occasionally use a taxi to visit the bustle of Votsalakia/Cambos.
We can unreserverdy recommend Ioanna's Studios for a quiet, relaxing holiday.

This is the best studio complex we have ever found in Greece. Spotlessly clean, roomy, with all the equipment one could wish for , views to die for and to top it all Ioanna is the most delightful person one would wish to meet. Ioanna, if you read this review please be assured we will be back.

We found a quiet site with view on the sea, trees and flowers in the garden, a spacious studio well furnitured and very clean, kitchenette well equipped and a little terrace in front of the studio for a relaxing start and end of the day.
In Limnionas and surroundings you find excellent beaches with clear water and in spring or autumn great opportunities for extended walks.
Ioanna, the host, is at any moment fully dedicated to enable her guests a stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible.

We always like to plan our holidays individually and look for quiet places, away from the main tourist routes, where we can survive well without a car for a few days.
Our stay at Sudios Ioanna in Limnionas proved to be a fantastic choice...Apartments, setting, location, hospitality were all 1a and we had nothing but praise for our super "host" Ioanna.

The airy and comfortable apartments (there are only 6) were excellently maintained, absolutely clean and quiet and were set in a wonderful garden with a view of Limnionas Bay. Ioanna was extremely caring, helpful, friendly and alot of fun without being at all intrusive (she was extremely flexible with regard to room cleaning times as we usually slept in very late!)....

The location in Limnionas is excellent if you want to hike, swim or just hang out, relax and read.
The nearest beach, a pebble/sand mix is approx. 5 mins away, and is good for both less and more confident swimmers and interesting for snorkelers. It is to be mentioned that most beaches on Samos are in no way overrun and all beaches in this south western area in Samos are no way as frequented as those in the north of the island, which actually means they are sometimes pretty empty! (Which is one reason we came to Samos).
There is also a trail leading along the coast from the beach in Limnionas to the next wonderful sandy beach at Psili Ammos. This takes about 45 minutes on foot but on the way there are mainy small bays and rock pools where you find not a soul...
In the other direction you can hike towards the super "Taverna at the End of the World"(which is also to be highly recommended)...and here you also find a multitude of small beaches...
Talking of Tavernas....Limnionas has at least 4, one of which, Galini, is directly opposite Studios Ioanna..(we didn´t try it unfortunately..but it looked good!)
Also opposite Studios Ioanna is the local supermarket, which can take care of all your every day needs. The owner was extremely kind and helpful and if they don´t have what you need they will get it for you!
We did get a car for the last couple of days which Ioanna also kindly organised for us at a great price.
Studios Ioanna was a great place to stay for us and we look forward to a return visit.

A wonderfully, shady oasis surrounfed by six excellent, and spotless studio apartments, each with their own sea view balcony.
Ioanna is a charming host and looked after us so well - she is always around watering her plants and flowers and keeping the place immulately. Such a great host.
Just a 5 min stroll down to the beach, a handy mini-market is right opposite the studios and Limnionas provides a lovely beach, nice bars and some really good restaurants - worth the trip to drive out to Kohili - the taverna at the end of the world for a classic dinner experience.
Limnionas is well situated to take in the best of tranquil south west Samos, with lovely hidden coves, sandy beaches and little tavernas.
We highly recommend a stay with Ioanna.

Room Tip: Best room is No6 with a bigger terrace overlooking the sea! But all of the studios have a small terr...

This is the place to be on Samos if you want to relax, be pampered, have a good time and lots of laughs.
Booking with Ioanna (the owner of Studios Ioanna) is as easy as picking up the phone and calling her. Check dates and arrange everything else through email. Easy! Ioanna was tons of fun and very helpful on the phone. Booking was done in minutes.
Do rent a car with her, or at the airport, because Limionias is on the far southwest part of the island Samos.
After arrival get in the car at the airport, set directions for Limnionias and turn left when you see Studios Ioanna. From there on you only have to worry about your sunscreen, because Limnionas and Studios Ioanna are so laid back that you forget to wear your watch.
Ioanna greeted us when we got there and she was one of the most friendly people we have ever met. If you want something done, she is available 24-7 and will arrange it for you. Like our car trouble, which she managed for us flawlesly.

So, if you don't like little Greek spicy funny women, bang for your bucks and you hate to relax. Don't go to Studios Ioanna!

Ioanna’s Studios proved to be a good choice for staying at Limnionas. The studios are set in an L- shape with a well-planted garden in the centre and you have a view of the bay from your individual terrace. The studios are well-maintained and well-equipped, including a kettle and hairdryer. Ioanna was a friendly and welcoming host, happy to chat and a good source of information on what to do and see.

It’s only a few minutes walk to the pebble beach, which is unspoilt, with a pretty headland and a few simple tavernas. Our favourite taverna in the area was 2.5 km outside of Limnionas, Taverna at the End of the World, which served excellent stuffed courgette flowers and grilled calamari. Other favourite places to eat were at Ballos: Akrogiali and Stella.
You can snorkel at Limnionas, but the best snorkelling was around the western headland, at the base of the cliffs on either side of the beach by the Katina studios.

If you’re going to stay more then a few days at Liminionas, then you probably do need a car, not least to get to the supermarkets at Kambos.
