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.
