This was our first holiday in Greece but certainly won't be our last! The whole holiday was amazing. The Nostos Studios are situated on a quiet road a couple of minutes walk from the beach. There are plenty of tavernas and restaurants to choose from close by aswell as several supermarkets selling most items you need. You can exchange travellers cheques in the Macedonia Supermarket which is probably the nearest one to Nostos. The beach at Golden Beach is fantastic and the sea was very warm and inviting. There is a little train that takes you from the Marinas Apartments just down the road into Skala Potamias, Potamia and Panagia on a very interesting 4 hour trip for a very reasonable cost. The bus service on Thassos is excellent - cheap and great air conditioned buses and we didn't bother to hire a car as there was no need.
Our apartment was spotlessly clean and perfectly comfortable with a beautiful balcony overlooking the garden and just over the road, an olive grove with the mountains in the distance. My photographs will show better than any words just how pretty the place is. There was air conditioning available at an extra charge but it is very effective and worth paying for. There are safety deposit boxes available to hire in the room which hold all the normal valuables, so no worries there. We only used the kitchen equipment to make simple breakfasts or a sandwich but there is adequate crockery etc. and a full sized fridge to store your Mythos! Beds were quite comfortable but pillows were a bit hard for me which was no problem as I always pack my own pillow in my case anyway (good for packing any bottles of wine or jars of honey you bring back)!
We were met on arrival by the friendly owners who really made us feel welcome. The bar is lovely, right in the middle of the gardens. There is also a library at reception where you can borrow some holiday reading matter. A baker's van calls at Nostos every morning with fresh bread, doughnuts and pastries for you to buy for breakfast! I had been apprehensive about visiting Greece for the first time but as soon as I arrived at Nostos, I felt at home and was gutted when the holiday came to an end. The only bad thing about the holiday was that it was over too fast. We are going to book another holiday at Nostos for 2010!

My husband and I have just returned from two weeks in Thassos staying at Nostos studios - the room itself was very Greek -basic but very clean, unusually good shower but typically hard beds!
Kitchen facilities again basic but adequate ( there is a cooker but I dont go on holiday to cook! ) We had a kettle, fridge and toaster what more could you want?
The view from the balcony is absolutely stunning! We could sit out and see the mountains and the sea!
The Nostos gardens are lovely George's pride and joy! There is no shortage of water on the island as you will see by the way he lovingly waters his garden! The bar in the garden is very welcoming and many guests seem to gravitate towards it starting or ending their day there for a quiet drink or chat. The staff are all very friendly and helpful.
We would advise that you budget into your holday the cost of air conditioning at six euros a day this is pretty steep but we found essential.
We would recommend the Nostos to anyone looking for a quiet base in beautiful surroundings.

We stayed in the Nostos Studios in Golden Beach in Thassos. Lovely studios, very clean, pretty surroundings, cleaners in nearly every day. Golden beach was stunning, really long beach into skala potamia. didnt feel crowded even though we went peak season in August. not over crowded with brits and no fast food places. we were worried about wasps because of other reviews and they were no problem what so ever. more of a problem back home. If you walked along golden beach about half way the sun beds were 7euros instead of 6euros but they were giving free frappes!!! Golden Beach was fairly quiet in the evenings. We went to Vigili up on the cliff top, nice views but problem one of the more expensive restaurants. Not far from Vigili was Styros/Syros not sure but lovely little restaurant, reallly good prices on fish. before ordering fish ask how much for the portion. Skala potamia was a lot busier in the evenings, lovely pizza place called aphrodite, reasonable price as well. Potamia was a nice little village up the mountain, a few restauratns with spit roasts every day. hired a car for 5 days with hertz for 150 euros, room for negotiating, just check that its fully comp insurance. Thassos town is a worth an evening out and limenaria in the south of the island. lovely island, very similar to skiathos and kefalonia, in the next ten years it is going to get built up but at the moment it is a lovely island and we would definitely go back there again.

Right, the following is a review of the Nostos Studio's as well as Golden Beach and Thassos.

The staff at Nostos are superb. The gardens are extremely well kept and everyone always has a smile and hello for you when you are walking past. The maid service is superb and they occasionally washed up for us which was superb.

The room was very basic - we have been in 'simple style' accomodation before and this was more basic than that. The bed's are a bit hard and the pillows are very hard. This does not make for a comfortable sleep at night time unless you want to pay the €6 a day for air-conditioning. Other apartments that clearly did pay for air con left it on over night which meant it was far too noisy to keep the windows open.

To say these rooms are self-catering is a bit of an exaggeration. We went here with the idea of cooking in a few nights because of the poor euro exchange rate. However, with only 2 electric rings, 1 frying pan and one very large cooking pot and no utensils i.e. wooden spoon, sharp knife etc, catering for ourselves was extremely limited.

The bathroom drain over flowed regulary when showing which led to soaking towels etc.

Views from the balcony are great and the loaction of the studio's is superb - just far away enough from the big camp site to make it feel more private but only a 5 minute walk to Golden Beach and less than 30 mins to Skala Potamias - where I would recommend for night time eating and entertaining.

I feel like I am moaning and it must sound like I completely hated the place which is not the case. For the money the apartments are very good and I would recommend the apartment to people on the understaning its more room only that SC and to budget for the air con.

Golden Beach itself as I have just said is predominantly a large camp site that brings people from all over Europe. This was never a problem and the camp site shop has a good selection and is priced well. Some of the restaurants always looked a bit empty. We ate a few times at a great place calld Playa d'oro I think - highly recommended. We usually finished with drinks in Stefenos Bar which was excellent. Meals were about €25-€30 for a small starter each, main meals, 2 beers and 1 glass of wine (for 2 people). Some places give you free walnut cake afterwards which is a bonus.

Skala Potamias is the nearest bigger resort. Walkable to accross the beach or by road there are a larger selection of shops and restaurants. Well worth the walk to in the day or night.

The beaches in between Golden Beach and Skala Potamias are quieter and cheaper as well. 2 sunbeds and a parasol is between €5-€7 depending which part of the beach you are on.

Towards the end of our holiday we found we had ran out of things to do on the island however. Trips and excursions seemed very expensive so this is definatley an island for people looking for 2 weeks of relaxing on the beaches and completely unwinding.

These are excellent apartments with the most beautiful gardens. George, his family and staff are so friendly and welcoming. A true garden of eden paradise full of birds and fireflies. Do not hesitate to stay here - they looked the best quality apartments in the Golden Beach area.

You have the best of both worlds as you are in a perfect position for walking into scala Potamia too. If you turn right outside the gates head up the main road for 1 min on your left you will see a track leading to a new white villa, not quite finished. Follow this beautifully quiet track past goats and donkeys for 20 minutes and you are in scala potamia- avoiding all the main roads.

We loved doing this of an evening when walking to The Akogriali taverna in Scala Potamia which was our favourite in the area. We ate in 11 tavernas and this was tops. Cute red and white checked tables right on the waterfront - lovely family and wonderful food at great prices. They only opened last year - so please try it.

A perfect holiday - The Nostos apartments are justifiably popular- book early .
