We booked the Erato apartments after reading the reviews on Trip Advisor. We wanted a typical Greek village but on the edge of town. What the reviews and the description don't say is how cramped and suffocating apartment 1 is. The only windows are onto the courtyard (where the jasmine didn't successfully cover the smell of sewers) and therefore very gloomy. There is only one tiny closet partially blocked by one of the beds and a tiny half cupboard in the back room. The front room includes the cooking area which consists of a double hot plate and a fridge. The shower/toilet room is right by the hotplate so if anybody goes to the toilet....
The only place to eat, realistically is outside in the courtyard. We travelled in July and it was too hot to go to the terrace. It is also relatively noisy and although Lindos is outwardly a very typical Greek village it is full of tourists shops, bars and tourists. Very little Greek life to see except for the children who play in the narrow alleys freely (very charmingly). To turn the lights on you had to insert a key inside the flat which you couldn't locate easily in the dark. We didn't stay, we decided to lose our deposit and found somewhere else to go. Grossly overrated reviews and way too expensive for what it was. One thing that confused us and made us think we were getting something really good is the description of apartment 1. It is not a 4 bed apartment. It is a two rooms apartment with a total of 4 beds.
