Erato Apartments
Ranked #31 of 54 Speciality Lodging in Lindos
Reviewed 28 July 2013

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.

Great location, really convenient, but very tranquil. We had apartment 3 which was 3bedded and we enjoyed breakfast and our evening aperitif relaxing in the shade of the trailing grape vines and fragrant jasmine just outside our door, although we could equally have gone upstairs to enjoy the sunny terrace.
Accommodation is traditional Lindos style, basic but clean and comfortable; plenty of hot water and very efficient air con. Variety of nationalities amongst other guests, which we like.
Hosts were warm, friendly, helpful and welcoming, but never intrusive. Best accommodation in the price range I've stayed in over 4 trips to Lindos and woul definitely book again next time.
Book your taxi through Erato (the price is the same) and the taxi driver will lead you direct to the accommodation, rather than wandering round looking for the apartments. Same on pick up, they will help you with your bags if required. Accommodation and taxi parking is in close proximity to cafe Melia.

Although we have visited the Greek Islands on a number of occasions in the past, this was our first visit to Lindos and the Erato Apartments. We learned more about Greece and the culture on this visit than on any previous holiday to this region! Upon arrival we were instantly made to feel very welcome and like a member of the family. Anastasia (mother of the owner) is such a lovely lady. She would quite often make us some local food and explain how it is made in the traditional ways, especially her homemade strawberry sauce for ice cream. The studios themselves are spotless and well maintained and kept in the old traditional Greek style. Lindos itself is fantastic! We would definitely go back again but only if we could stay in these studios! We would highly recommend them to anyone wishing to stay in Lindos. Although the studios were in the middle of the village, it was very peaceful on the terrace! Thanks for a wonderful holiday, Janet and Eddie Begley (England)

At the end of October we stayed for 10 days at Erato apartments in Lindos. The apartment is nice, traditional and spacious. Erato is situated in the center of Lindos near the beach of Saint Paul's Bay which you can reach within 5 minutes walking. The main beach at the other side of Lindos is a 10 minutes walk.

The owners of the apartments, Anastasia and Thanassia, are very kind, friendly and hospitable. They are always willing to give advices.

We just arrived from our one-week holiday in Lindos at Erato apartments and we already miss the atmosphere. We really enjoyed our stay with our one-year old son there. We stayed at the apartment, No5, spent our mornings and evenings on terrace together with a warm hostess. The place is situated very close to St Pauls Bay. It´s excellent for families with children, especially those who love swimming and relaxing at the seaside.

We also enjoyed walking to the town with our small explorer. Frankly
speaking we appreciated our stay here greatly.

Thank you Anastasia & Thanassis & Haroula for our wonderful stay

We have just returned from an idyllic 16 days in Lindos - staying in the Erato Apartments. What a find!

The Erato is an oasis of calm in a bustling Lindos, down a side street, but just a few moments walk away from the main village and all its attractions.

The apartments are blisfully quiet. The top terrace has wonderful views down to the sea and is a fabulous place to just sit under the big umbrella and read in complete stillness.

The apartment we stayed in (No. 5),was spotless and our towels and linen changed very regularly.

Anastasia and Thanassis, who live at the apartments, are so welcoming and friendly and were very patient with me and my fumbling attempts to speak Greek to them. Nothing was too much trouble and we miss them already!

We cannot recommend the Erato apartments too highly and fully intend to return before very long.

Kate and Gerry

Room Tip: We loved Apartment No. 5 - I am sure all the rooms at the Erato Apartments are wonderful, but being...
