This place is absolutely phenomenal. The rooms, the views, the food and most importantly - the hosts! Magdalena and Periklis were incredible and made our stay at Live-Bio the best part of our visit to Greece. I absolutely recommend making this place part of your trip to Greece and even if you don't manage to stay there, absolutely get in contact with them and do some of the amazing activities they organize! We cannot wait to return.
Life bio is literally a 10 minute walk to the nearest town and a 5 minute walk to the nearest beach. Situated on a hill overlooking the island of Poros and the aquamarine blue of the Aegean it is a wonderful place to relax and soak in the atmosphere of the area.
The appartment is spacious and very well appointed with everything you may need for your stay. The balcony has an amazing view and you can just sit and relax with a glass of your favourite beverage watching the sunset or rise.
The hosts are really lovely people and can offer you all sorts of activities that they themselves manage and run. From trips in the area to sailing on a boat it is all here. If you want to do your own thing that is fine too. A great feeling of freedom at Life Bio.
We warmly recommend a stay here and have nothing but good things to say about it.
Stayed here for a week and can't put in words how amazing this place was ! From the view of the balcony to the cleanliness of the room and to the great hosts who make you feel so welcome and at home . Live bio gives you the authentic Greek experience and more ! Book today !!
I visited Livebio for the second time, this time with my fiancé, which from day one I started talking about this place.
As always I had the most wonderful time at Livebio and Poros, what made it so special is that Perkilis and Magdalena are such amazing hosts, we really enjoyed; the dinners at their beautiful house and meeting the other guests coming from all over the world! Sailing with perkilis was amazing and so relaxing
I can't say enough of this place, and I keep telling my family and friends you have to go to Poros and no where is better to stay at Livebio to have a truly authentic Greek experience
Amazing place: warm and friendly atmosphere, and a hostess careful to the well-being of its customers. Congratulations !
My husband and I spent a wonderful week at Live-Bio June 28 – July 5, 2017. The studio was well equipped, very clean and comfortable. There is plenty of space to fully unpack and make yourself at home. When temps were quite hot, the A/C cooled the space quickly when we returned each day. We found everything we needed grocery wise at the local markets. Magdalena and Periklis are incredible hosts. They have a wealth of knowledge and suggestions for whatever interests you. While we were there, they hosted two evenings with some of the other guests. We thoroughly enjoyed their warm hospitality, delicious local, Greek cuisine and the lively conversation with people who have lived and worked all over the world. If you are in need of alone time and prefer to keep to yourselves, they would respect that, too. If you’re at all interested in Greek cooking, we highly recommend signing up for the cooking class at Odyssey – it was a definite highlight of our Greek adventure. And regardless of what else you plan to do while there, make sure you reserve enough time to just sit and enjoy the incredible view from your balcony at every time of day and night. “Come as a stranger, leave as a friend” is not just words Magdalena and Periklis put on their property description; if you are open, it will be true for you as it was for us.
This is a brilliant place to stay for a while and get used to the pace of Greek life - relax, eat good food and also meet some great people, from the locals to the other guests at Live Bio. The apartments are beautiful and the view is absolutely out of this world. Periklis and Magdalena made us feel extremely welcome and were so flexible and helpful, making our stay a fantastic one. For a stress-free and interesting holiday, I can't recommend it highly enough.
If you don't want to go far in a day, you can just stay on the loungers on the deck which looks out over the Aegean sea, and hop in and out of the plunge pool on the deck. Or there's a nearby beach and taverna within a 15-20 minute walk. The main point to be aware of is there's a very steep hill to climb to get to the apartment (the price to pay for the view!). However, this doesn't really affect your choice, as cabs are extremely cheap (4 or 5 Euro back from the nearby town, Galatas), so even if you don't hire a car, you never have to climb the hill if you don't want to.
All in all, it's a brilliant compromise between secluded location and great views, and accessible to all the local amenities. Periklis and Magdalena will help you shop if you want to, and you can also order takeaway from local restaurants. We had a really, really lovely stay.
