This June my girlfriend and I went island-hopping in the Dodekanes and our second stop lead us to Tilos. We did not know what to expect and had not booked a room before. On the ferry from Rhodes to Tilos we met Ira and Andreas who offered us a studio at Apollo. From the harbour it took us two minutes to walk to the studios, which are situated within the centre of the nice village Livadia, directly next to the main square with two or three bars/cafes, two small supermarkets, a bakery and a great tavern (Nikos). The studios are not directly located at the beach, but approx. 50 meters away from it, so it is still perfect. Our studio had a balcony anyway, so we could take our breakfast overlooking the beautiful bay/harbour of Livadia. The studio has been freshly renovated and had everything we needed: a private bath with a shower, a small kitchen, an electric kettle, fridge, dishes and cutlery, AC,... All looked brandnew and it felt as if we were the first to rent this nice room. Furthermore we could use the great roof terrace, where you could sit down, look at the bay and the surrounding landscape and have a beer or wine you can buy in the small supermarkets.
It is a great place to discover the beautiful island of Tilos, we went hiking (you can buy a small map at the tourist info with 9 hiking trails, but i think the map of Tilos you can buy at the small travel agency at the harbour is more exact), snorkeling and swimming, had beautiful bays just for ourselves and visited the surrounding villages and the monastery at the western coast of the island with a rented scooter. After the stressful stay at Rhodes the stay at Tilos was perfect, very relaxing, a beautiful landscape and crystal-clear water. From the islands we visited (Kalymnos, Patmos, Rhodes and Tilos) this was the nicest spot we have found so far in the Dodekanese.
But it was especially for Andreas and Ira, the landlords, that made the stay at Tilos and the Apollo Studios so relaxing and nice. They helped us everywhere they could, gave us information about the island, always had time for a little talk although they were busy working for the wellbeing of their guests. A very warmhearted and dedicated young couple, that made us feel at home in Tilos from the first minute on. So: Check out Tilos and the Apollo Studios are your place to stay! We had a great time there and will definitely come back!
