This is such a heavenly place that I've hesitated for 2 months before sharing it! If you want nightlife, shops, yachting harbours, loads of facilities, organised things to do, other tourists or anything other than peace, beauty, nature and a little bit of real Greece please do NOT visit Limnonious. We adored it. Galini studios are pretty and basic (bring bowls if you want to cook but with fabulous views over the most beautiful bay. It's less than 5 minutes walk down the hill to the idyllic cove - the adjacent golden sands beach is much applauded but this is just as good. Fresh fish restaurant and a couple of bars but only a few people when we were there in June. There's a lovely easy walk on a track along the coast and amazing quiet places to explore further along the west coast's road - especially if you brave the dirt tracks - or up the side of Mount Kerkis. Our host was very friendly and his Mum's Greek home cooking is amazing - they run the nearby Taverna. (There's also a little shop close to the studios). Leaving here and Samos broke our hearts. We will return. Please love it and leave it as it is if you visit!
