“Glass of fine wine watching sailing boats go by”
Reviewed 22 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

This is the place you want to be if you love good food and wine, traveler vibe people, robust nature and high quality of life. Live-Bio is a beautiful location with lovely people. Magda and Periklis have made this magical place a true paradise with clean appartments, excellent service and an experience to remember. Always with respect for the local community and the environment. Galatas is a special country-side town with a spectacular view on beautiful Poros. The people make it special. The younger (new) generation Greek here go for quality, also there is less tourism then on Poros, which is still a small boat trip away. Best place for consious nature minded people that go for quality in all their journeys!

“Fantastic”
Reviewed 21 October 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Periklis and Magdalena were the perfect hosts. They respected our need for privacy but were always there for advice and anything we required. Nothing was too much trouble and would even drive into town to pick guests up any time of the day or night. We were invited to share a glass of wine and delicious food in their home and Periklis would make this amazing sourdough bread and invite guests to partake at breakfast time. Live-Bio is a business that succeeds because the hosts go the " the extra mile" and really make you believe you are in your own home. In conclusion, we had a fantastic four week holiday in a part of the world renowned for Greek mythology but there was nothing mythological about this Trip Advisor listing as it was a very real paradise.

“The Taste of Luxury”
Reviewed 4 October 2016 for a stay in July 2016

This is my second and definitely not last visit to Live-Bio. This is beautifully located hill of Galatas (Peloponnese), with breathtaking view of the Ionian Sea (Aegean) and the island of Poros, where you can enjoy the sunrise without leaving the bed. A great starting point to surrounding cities of the Peloponnese Peninsula and other Saronic Islands. In addition to Poros is Hydra, Agistri, Dokos, Aigina, Methana, Salamis and Spetses. Each of them captivates the beauty, history and unique atmosphere.

The magic of Live-Bio is not only the beauty of the surrounding area, but above all its hosts, Magdalena and Periklis. They met far away in South Africa, fell in love, abandoned the corporate world and decided to come back to the place that Periklis’ dad got fascinated many years ago. A year ago they started their adventure, step by step creating a place of dreams. Here are the things brought from travels, but also old furniture, which Pericles gives new life. It is a meeting point for interesting and inspiring people who you can get known closer at the Greek cuisine, history and music evenings organized by hosts.

“Stunning place with incredible hosts”
Reviewed 24 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

My sister and I spent a few days at Live-Bio and we regretted we didn't have more time! The apartment was so spacious with a large balcony and an absolutely gorgeous view. Magda and Periklis made us not only feel at home but by telling us what else there is to do in the region, they made us want to come back - soon and for longer! Thank you for an amazing time and home-made olive oil :)

“Amazing”
Reviewed 22 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Why go to a Greek island when you can have 5 around you.

My husband and I stayed at Live- Bio for one week.

From the moment we stepped into the room we were blown away by the scenery.
Our Huge room with a large balcony was a peaceful heaven with stunning views all around.
We could have easily spend the whole day just looking out at the sea and Poros Island. If you wake up early sunrise arrives, it’s beyond reality!

Breakfast on the balcony every morning was just the best thing ever!

We really enjoyed our room, it had extremely high ceilings. It was a lovely, modern, very comfortable,clean and quiet room.

The owner, Magdalena and Periklis , Amazingly friendly people, they took care of our every need to feel at home and enjoy our stay.

We are quite fussy when we travel, but this time there really isn't anything negative we can say about our stay.

This is one of those places that will stay in our heart because of the warmth of the Magdalena and Periklis. Thank you!

Congratulations on your incredible property. You should be very proud. We would definitely be back!

“Absolutely amazing”
Reviewed 22 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Best vacation we ever had. We spent there 2 weeks. This is definitely not enought to see all of the surrounding area. We will go back to Live-bio for sure.
Live-Bio is a quite place with gorgeus view on the beautiful island of Poros. The owners are very friendly, worm and helpful. They suggesting places to eat the best local cuisine (sea food risoto was my favorite). Apartments are very clean, quite and equipped with all necessary things, with the coffee machine ;-) thx for that.
10 min and you are at the beach - my 5 years old son favourite place.
We really enjoyed our stay at this beautiful place.

“Magical sail around Poros island”
Reviewed 19 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016
1
person found this review helpful

Captain Periklis came to pick us up from Askeli beach, we were surprised by the beautiful sail boat, he was kind and welcoming and the kids immediately loved him.
We decided to go on a sail around Poros island rather than go to a secluded beach, later we realized it was an excellent decision, great views accompanied by Periklis explanation about geology and sailing. After pausing for a swim and a drink of chilled white whine and some snacks compliments of our captain we arrived at the beautiful port a little after sunset.
This was the most memorable day from our vacation.
