“A Delightful Stay!”
Reviewed 8 July 2017 for a stay in June 2017

It's a rare occurrence when something surpasses expectations. As such, my wife Holly and I were extremely delighted by Live Bio and it's kind and generous hosts Magdalena and Periklis. Our room was beautifully decorated and well-appointed with everything we needed for a month-long stay. The balcony offered stunning views of green mountains blanketed with olive and citrus groves, the island of Poros with it's bustling harbor, and the cobalt sea and islands beyond — only God could make this many shades of blue! Magdalena and Periklis are consummate hosts — they looked after us, making sure that we had everything that we needed from the start and beyond. Also, they regularly invited fellow guests and their personal friends to evening get togethers so that all who wished to attend could make acquaintances and become friends. (We loved this!) There was plenty to do in the immediate area. We visited trendy cafes, fantastic restaurants, gift shops, and beaches offering cool, shaded lounge chairs, and tavernas with delicious food and drinks. When we wished to explore farther afoot we took advantage of sailing and road trips to historic and exotic destinations such as Hydra, Mycenae and Nafplio; we also took a fantastic Greek cooking class at Odyssey Centre. The highlight of our trip occurred when Magdalena and Perilkis helped to surprise my wife "Fantasy Island" style, with the renewal of our wedding vows for our 25th Anniversary, (on heart shaped Daskalio island). In short, Live Bio is a holistic collection of lovely people and experiences that together make guests feel special. Our stay at Live Bio was delightful — we will never forget our time there and hope to come back soon! Polloí efcharistoún ton Periklí kai ti Magdaliní!

“A perfect week in Greece...”
Reviewed 6 July 2017 for a stay in June 2017

Live-Bio was not only our fabulous accommodation while my wife and I stayed in Greece, it was a place that we could nearly call 'home.' The hosts were extremely helpful even before we arrived (we got there late at night) they helped us with directions and, once we got there, Magdalena welcomed us very warmly and we felt completely at ease and comfortable during our stay.

The room was comfortable, clean and spacious, plus our balcony had stunning views of the island of Poros and the local area. There was the charming Aliki beach only 5 minutes by car from Live-Bio and the local town of Galatas was also close by with all the amenities we needed, including some very good local tavernas.

We were also lucky to enjoy the newest addition of the setting (a little swimming pool and sunbeds!) and we were fortunate to spend time with the other lovely guests staying at Live-Bio as Magdalena and Periklis were kind enough to host us for a gathering in their home. An amazing experience that I could not recommend enough!

“A quiet, relaxed, beautiful place--like staying at a wonderful friends home!”
Reviewed 2 July 2017 for a stay in June 2017

Magdalena and Periklis are so open, welcoming and kind. Live Bio is an all around wonderfully calm and relaxing experience. It feels as if you are staying at a good friends home--there is a comfort and easy atmosphere. The rooms are beautiful and open and the views are stunning. It is not a very touristy area, so there is space to be and feel a more authentic Greek experience. Most definitely recommend!

“Definitely an unique place”
Reviewed 25 June 2017 for a stay in June 2017

Experience of Live-Bio starts from a stunning view on the bay from apartments, the surroundings without crowded resorts favoring nature-quiet state of mind. Situated on a hill close to the small town named Galatas - opposite the island of Poros, where daily boat trips are also an adventure.
But the uniqueness of this place essentially bases mainly on its philosophy, I guess. It seems to be addressed to the open-minded, world-curious people, whose Magda and Perikles will surely make familiar with non-obvious places and local community of this small Greek settlement. People around were extremely welcoming and hospitable, serving us delicious local food at affordable prices. We used to spend evenings together with other guests (international non-formal group:) on the hosts’ private terrace. We had a lot of inspiring conversations, accompanied by excellent local wines, enjoyed beautiful views, secluded beaches (such as Love Bay or wilder Monastery Bay), crystal water - all that Greece is famous for. Adding to that, Live-Bio is a perfect place for those, who are eager for a bit of contemplation and true local situations.
This june holiday was kind a discovery for us, no doubt.

“Best hosts and great place to stay!”
Reviewed 14 June 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Periklis and Magdelna are awesome hosts. They really want you to have the best time! We really enjoyed the interaction with them and the other guests. We did a great sailing trip with Periklis and Magdalena arranged some nice massages for us in our apartment and helped us with whatever we needed. We really liked that they give some extra to your stay at live-bio. The apartment has the best view and is very comfortable. Poros is lovely and the water is chrystal clear!

“Authentic, interconnected Greek experience!”
Reviewed 1 June 2017 for a stay in May 2017

We stayed almost a week with my boyfriend and this was a fantastic stay. Magdalena & Periklis are the kindest people, with a warm and friendly sense of welcome and an attention to fulfill their guests wishes. They are connected to many people from Galatas and Poros island and there is a special beautiful energy that you can feel between human beings there.
Thanks to Live-Bio, we first discovered Poros island from a running perspective with the 1st edition of Porosea's race (great challenge!!), we wandered around with bikes, enjoyed fishing on local fishermen advices, met like-minded people from all parts of the world and shared privileged moments altogether, enjoyed a fantastic dinner at Apagio's tavern and yoga sessions at sunrise and sunset on the beach, with the most relaxing sound: waves.
Last but not least, we enjoyed the view, which is truly spectacular, and the peace from up there.
Magdalena & Periklis will definitely make your stay exceptional and tailor made in this piece of paradise.

“Hidden Greek Gem”
Reviewed 31 May 2017 for a stay in May 2017

My husband and I were coming to the end of our three month European backpacking tour when we found ourselves at Periklis and Magdalena's hidden gem of a place. Despite the fact that we were not looking to visit Poros, once we'd read the rave reviews they received from past guest, we decided to change our plans and go see what all the fuss was about... and we're so glad that we did!!! From the moment we arrived we were greeted with smiling faces and warm hospitality (and the VIEW! It's incredible). Periklis and Magdalena introduced us to our surroundings and gave us a pamphlet to read describing a myriad of exciting excursions and experiences that they offer, and some other activities/dining/shopping they recommend. We hit it off with the other travelers staying on the property (which is an added bonus of staying here!) so we all shared a few fantastic seafood dinners together and even went on a wine tasting tour one afternoon. Periklis and Magdalena managed to convince us to sign up for a 5k around Poros with the others guests which was an absolute blast! We'll never forget our our time here and the generosity exhibited by these wonderful host. We wish them much luck on the future endeavors.... if you're looking for something really special - you've found it.
