For this year’s break I wanted a quiet, comfortable place right on the sea front with non-stop sun. I booked Studio 1 for 4 weeks and my husband joined me for the first 10 days which flew by. It has been perfect all round. All the Anemoessa studios are finished to a very good standard and are cool and comfortable. They have air conditioning in the bedroom, new washing machines and new fridge/freezers. The kitchen is well stocked with plates, pots and pans; there is a dining table for 4 and sofa bed that sleeps another 2. Studio 1 on the ground floor has a huge sunny terrace with a large tree that gives a generous, and much needed, shade during the heat of the day. The terrace has steps going into the pedestrian’s only path that runs along the sea front and then it is two or three steps to the crystal clear sea.
The experience has been made really nice, especially as I have been on my own for most of the holiday, by all the people here who have looked after me very kindly. Popi and her husband who own the studios, Olga who works for them, and Katerina who owns the hotel next door and her little dog Alfi have all been great hosts. Between Popi and Katerina brought us mousaka, strawberry jam, cakes, cookies and a courgette pie - all delicious and homemade.
As for the island, it is gorgeous. It smells of wild sage, has a good network of walking paths, a medieval abandoned village and beautiful beaches and coves some of which can be reached by boat. The locals are friendly specially if you dare mumbling two or three words of Greek, and the produce is fresh and tasty. There is also a little bar by the sea front and a large selection of restaurants. There are three small supermarkets and the fisherman and local farmer sell their produce from vans in the town square every morning. The square is the place to go at sunset to enjoy a beer or a café frappe and catch up with the life of the town.
All in all, the island is a great place to relax in a friendly, quiet environment and the studios are very comfortable and perfectly located. The sun rises just in front!
