Live bio is an amazing place full of life, culture and exitement. Perikils and Magdalena make you feel at home and provide you a wonderful experience like no other. The property and the view are wonderfull, from sailing to roadtrips there is so much to see.
I love my experience at live bio!

“An amazing place for large groups and children”

This was our first time in Greece and Live-Bio was truly a wonderful experience.

The rooms were large, clean and comfortable fully accommodating our group of 8, including 4 children. Amenities included a kitchen which allowed us to enjoy relaxing meals on our balcony which faces a most beautiful lookout of the sea and the coast of Poros (not forgetting the sunrise which we caught a glimpse of on our last morning). Thank you Periklis and Magdalena for hosting such a wonderful experience. The day out on your boat allowed us see the area from a different perspective and to visit so many beautiful beaches. The kids loved Aliki Beach and the sunset from Plaka. We especially enjoyed our day trips to the wine region of Nemea and the once in a lifetime play at the Epidavros Theatre.

We look forward to more adventures when we return next year!

My boyfriend and I stayed at live-bio for a small week and we regret not having booked for longer. It is truly an amazing place, built with love and care by Magdalena and Periklis. The apartments are very well located with many activities and islands to visit and beaches in the vicinity. It is a bit of a bumpy road up but once arrived you completely forget about it, with the most spectacular view and a comfortable and clean room. What we liked most is the company and the good vibe that we received from both Magdalena and Periklis and the kind of people they attract. They live a very conscious lifestyle and are keen on introducing you into their worlds and local community. It is by far the best way to travel. We recommend this place 100% and will definitely be coming back when possible.

“Excellent hospitality & guidance in Greece”
Reviewed 11 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

person found this review helpful

I traveled to Greece for a wedding in June and came along Live-Bio while searching for a place to stay in Poros. Although th rental was not available for my stay due to its overwhelming popularity given its stunning views, tremendous capacity for comfort, and excellent hosts, Periklis was able to provide several recommendations as to what I should do while staying in the islands and in Greece in general. He and his wife have a very personable, kind, and welcoming approach and are able to make recommendations that will cater to your individual needs whether it be dining, sailing, swimming/sports related activities, or even suggesting off-the-beaten path cultural gems that a traveler trekking abroad craves to make their trip more memorable and worthwhile. I highly recommend staying here for an experience that will truly make you feel welcome in a foreign country, yet far enough removed from the "real world," giving you that ultimate "I'm on vacation" feeling. Periklis provides you with an experience that will truly immerse you in the lifestyle of Greece that is unique, dream-like, and most of all, addicting. I can't wait to go back!

Open space furnished in a very pleasant style.The bathroom is large and comfortable, with two sinks. The view on the island of Poros is incredible. The wind freshens night and day, even during the hottest hours you are fine. Move fifteen kilometers to the south west, on the coast road, and you'll find lovely small beaches. You are close to Epidaurus and other important archaeological sites. You can move from home to Galatas with convenient and inexpensive taxi service.

“Excellent first year of retirement!”
Reviewed 27 May 2015 for a stay in September 2014
1
person found this review helpful

We lived in this spacious studio for 10 months during our first year of retirement. It was perfect for us. The view of the Aegean, changing every day was mesmerizing and filled us with delight every morning. Easy access to the village of Galatas where we could fill our kitchen with fresh produce for just a few euros. Bakery, butcher, supermarket, phone provider are all in the village accessed by a 20 minute walk or a 3 minute car ride. A perfect little beach is just at the bottom of the hill, and a large sandy beach with beverages, sun beds and umbrellas is an easy 20 minute walk. Poros Island is a 2 minute water taxi ride from Galatas and a real bonus for sites and nightlife. Car rental is available in Galatas and enabling us to travel much of the Peloponnese from the mountains, to Monemvasia to the Mani peninsula. In short, it was a wonderful, memorable year!

“A gem off the beaten path”
Reviewed 26 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We got the opportunity to stay at Live-Bio and what a treat it was. It is located on a hill overlooking the bay as well as a clear view of Poros Island (the view is spectacular at night)!! You are situated a few minutes walk from the Marina and various beach fronts. Our hosts were extremely accommodating and knowledgeable on the local attractions. Live-Bio is situated away from the throngs of tourists visiting Poros Island giving you a chance to relax, get an authentic experience of the land and simply enjoy.
