“Excellent”
Reviewed 10 August 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We (me, my spouse and our 2.5 years old son) spent 2 months in this charming place - arrived in the beginning of June and stayed till the end of July.

Location. Very easy to get there from Athens, either by speedboat or by car. Galatas is not touristic place that/s why everything is significantly cheaper than in most popular destinations in Greece. One very good beach is just 20 min walking or 5 min driving – 3 Euro per sunbed for the whole day, includes coffee or juice. Even in high season the beach is not overpopulated, a bit more people on weekends, mostly locals or from the nearby hotel.
There was everything we needed for a good life in Galatas: very good fish and meat shops, 2 supermarkets, one excellent confectioner’s shop, outstanding coffee shop and a number of taverns.
Poros island is 1 minute by taxi boat from Galatas quay (1 Euro per person, 5 Euro per car on a big ferry). The island is very green and the main quay in marina is picturesque and busy. There are a lot of bars and restaurants there, all possible attractions for day and nightlife. There are also some very nice beaches there.

Premises. Quite high on the hill with the good access from the main road. Contemporary and bright interior, fully furnished kitchen, full size bathroom. Fully operational AC - we had been using it not very often, were sleeping with open windows. Huge open terrace with astonishing panoramic view - sea is 180 degrees. The view is so nice that I think it’s best I ever had.

Live Bio. Magdalena and Periklis cared about us during the whole stay. After a couple of days we started feeling there as at home. They created an incredibly friendly atmosphere in Live Bio, the one we are going to miss a lot. Thank you and hope to see you again!

“Stunning views and appartments”
Reviewed 7 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Breathtaking views from the apartments(sunrise was awesome). Walking distance to the beaches. Cycling around the island - brilliant.
The road to the properties is very steep so for active people it;s a great thing!
Poros is very picturesque- my favorite island so far. I like it's romantic and relaxed ambiance.
Live-bio studios are so pretty inside - for this price it's a REAL STEAL! Just go and book.
Magdalena spend some time with me, showing the hospitality and the culture of mutual sincerity of the locals. It was a truly lovely experience.
And those figs...with melted cheese...OMG.

Absolut beautiful and charming place to stay and relax. We got warmly welcomed and were also happy about meeting Magdalena and Pireklis. Astonishing view from the balcony, really close to at least 2 really nice beaches. Less tourists and really friendly people everywhere

“A little paradise just 2 hours from Athens”
Reviewed 24 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We have just spent an amazing few days at Live-Bio and are bracing ourselves for a tough landing back into work... Periklis and Magda have opened the doors to bright, comfortable rooms decorated and arranged with great attention to details - what's not to like about having your fridge already filled with a selection of the best local wines?
Aside from the incredible views and the warm welcome from our hosts, we really enjoyed visiting the island of Poros which attracts a great deal of Greeks tourists as well as some well informed foreigners. It gives the island a unique feeling of authenticity. There is no doubt you are in Greece!
Aside from beaches, a sailing trip with Periklis, amazing food at Apagio, the region is home to some great treasures like the Ancient Theater of Epidaurus, Nafplio, and of plethora of cute monasteries; all this providing the perfect balance of indulgence and stimulation for a memorable holiday.

“Fantastic weekend in Live-Bio”
Reviewed 20 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We visited Live Bio with my wife and our two children (9 and 6 y old) in June and we had the most amazing weekend with lots of great hospitality and good company. The view towards Poros island and the Aegean Sea from our balcony was simply breathtaking. The kids were excited with the near-by beaches and with the excursions at Poros island. Poros is only a 5 minutes boat-trip away and the little boats cross the channel 24/7. Periklis took us sailing with their private sailing ship to a remote beach which was an absolutely once in a lifetime experience. Very warm and personalized hospitality by Periklis and Magdalena who are always there to help. Cant wait to return and we definitely recommend Live-Bio to people who want to combine genuine Greek lifestyle and relaxed holidays.

“Amazing”
Reviewed 14 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

My wife, daughter (15) and I spent 11 fantastic days with Magdalena and Periklis at Live-Bio. This is a truly amazing place. The view from the apartment is marvellous. The interior design is tasteful and of high quality and the atmosphere is just so nice and relaxed. Magdalena and Periklis are there whenever you need a piece of advice, they are eager to help you finding a good restaurant nearby or interesting sights in Peloponnese and we were invited more than once to join them privately together with friends and other guests at Live-Bio. In walking distance, there are beaches and Galatas, the small village with cafés and restaurants. We would especially recommend Le frianderie – their coffee and burgers are to die for! Also, if you want to pick from a broader range of restaurants it is easy to go to Poros with one of the boats. They leave all the time. After some days with relaxation, we decided to rent a car and visit Napflio, the ancient theatre at Epidaurus and the peninsula Methana, where you can take a hike to a volcano! There are lots of things to see, especially when you are lucky to have two helpful and knowing people as your hosts and guides. We give Live-Bio and Magdalena and Periklis our warmest recommendations.

“unforgetable , magnificent”
Reviewed 14 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We arrived driving a rental car from Athens thirsty luxurious double holiday. We were amazed to get a spectacular studio, clean, big and secluded with complete privacy. The scenery is breathtaking, overlooking the island of Poros. The area around the green and blooming, surrounded by beautiful open spaces. The images did not disappoint at all. Periklis and magdalena discovered and lovely people polite and friendly. He promised us a dream vacation and really made sure that was the best possible. Has furnished the studio all good, we made sure not to miss anything. Recommended hiking trails and good restaurants. And we went together day in his private yacht cruise.
We had four days full of fun outings, lovely views and great food. We had a perfect holiday and sure we will return to it next time with joy and love.
