“Such a wonderful place- highly recommended!”
Reviewed 8 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

My wife and I spent 4 amazing days at Live-Bio and loved it. Our gorgeous bungalow apartment was located on a hill overlooking Poros harbor and had a breathtaking view. We had the freedom to explore the countryside, beaches and the town and Magdalena (the super charming and knowledgable owner) gave us excellent advice so we felt like we were truly living in Greece, not just there as tourists. What sets Live-Bio apart is that Magdalena and Pericles (her husband and co-owner) also offer really cool activities in conjunction with local restaurants and artisans. For example my wife and I took a Greek cooking class at a local restaurant through Live-Bio and it was awesome. ** In summary - it's the perfect place whether you want to explore or just relax on a beach or simply enjoy the peaceful Greek pace of life. **

“Amazing vacation at Live- Bio”
Reviewed 12 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

A week stay at Live-Bio was a present from our children. It was the most relaxing vacation we had in a long time! Beautiful views, peace and tranquility! Great food! The amazing atmosphere that Magda and Periklis create made our vacation even better. They put their whole lives and hearts into Live-Bio and thats why the stay here was so special. We'll definetely come back for a longer vacation!

“This was one of my very favourite holiday experiences ever!”
Reviewed 2 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Periklis and Magdalena went above and beyond to make our stay with them comfortable and enjoyable and have put so much thought and effort into making Live-Bio a truly wonderful place to stay. We were greeted by Magdalena in Galatas who took us to the local shops to buy some food other essentials, helping us to pick out some in season fruit and vegetables and excellent cheeses. Live-Bio is in a truly beautiful location - we so enjoyed relaxing on the balcony and walking around the olive groves. The apartment itself was extremely comfortable and nicely decorated - we had everything we could need. This is a great place to stay if you are looking for a slice of authentic Greek life away from the crowds of tourists. Periklis kindly dropped us back into town very early on our last morning - we were sad to leave but can't wait to return

“Stunning view, warm hospitality”
Reviewed 31 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We recently spent three days at Live-Bio and it was the second time I left Athens for a long weekend at Periklis and Magdalena’s fantastic property. If you come once, you will definitely want to come back. The studios are very spacious, fully equipped, tastefully decorated and the view from the balcony is so amazing that no pictures we took (and we took a lot!) could ever capture it. Periklis and Magdalena are great hosts, offering their guests a holistic, unforgettable experience during their stay: a candlelight dinner tasting local products, Greek wine and the delicious olive oil they produce themselves, sailing on their own sailing boat, “Naziara”, to the beautiful island of Hydra, swimming and strolling around in Poros island, were just a few of the things we had the opportunity to do during these 3 days. Live-Bio is not just a place to stay. You leave feeling full, relaxed and knowing that you made two great friends.

“Pictures are never enough! ”
Reviewed 16 May 2016 for a stay in April 2016

When we first decided to stay at Live-Bio, we were amazed by the pictures. We tought that rooms are well decorated and and have nice view. But as soon as we check in, we have met with Periklis, and his nice behaviour. He was always there when we need something and always so helpful. And also room's facilities, decoration & view are much more better than we see on their page. No better place for me to stay in Poros & Galatas :)

“Magnificent and restful”
Reviewed 14 May 2016 for a stay in April 2016

In the perfect location, with stunning views - a stay at Live-Bio is more like a retreat. The rooms are a massive 100 sqm and offer sweeping vistas of the Greek island of Poros opposite and the sea beyond.
Do as much or as little as you like. The owners Magdalena and Periklis are on hand to offer advice as to what to do, where to travel in the region, or will even take you on a little trip themselves (prices of what's on offer in the room).

Don't miss out this region of the mainland in Greece (best reached by ferry to Poros Island (about 1.5 - 2 hours), then a small roll on/off ferry back from Poros to the mainland (about 10 mins, literally).

Get the best of both worlds; mainland and island holiday and living!

Perfect getaway! Stayed for a month but wished it was longer. Large, clean, luxurious rooms with a breathtaking view and balcony you never want to leave. Magda and Periklis are wonderful hosts- take them up on the 'experiences' they offer! Definitely coming back here!
