“Great location, great accommodation, great holiday”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 November 2013

Just had 2 weeks at Maria Studios in Paleokatritsa, Weather perfect just 10 minutes of rain.
End of season but everyone still trying to please.
Yiannis very helpful and good fun, Katerina also very accommodating and helpful.
Rooms and beds changed every 2 days (thank you). Thanks also Yiannis' mum for the Stifado.
Thanks Yiannis for the fish and helping the British to have fish with the heads on !
Bloody Tourists
The island was beautiful and we received a great welcome everywhere. We hired a car from George Michalas who looked after us on price and after a small prang in Corfu Town, I would recommend for car hire.
We hope to return next year but we will be back

Last year we spent a week at Maria Studios and thought it was so good decided to return for 2 weeks this year. we have been back for 10 days and can't wait to go back again. Yiannis, Katerina, Spiro, Maria and not forgetting mum are very welcoming and do everything to make your stay unforgettable. The accommadation and outside areas are kept pristine at all times. The food is cooked fresh and in view of guests by Katerina and Yiannis mum, at times Yiannis even cooks!!!!! the food is of high quality and the menu is wide ranging. On a saturday is the famous BBQ night, lamb joints and whole chickens are spit roasted (see picture) then portioned and are served with salad & chips, this is followed by a sweet, you also get a caraf of wine - following all this is traditional Greek dancing proformed by Yiannis and his sister Angela, after some instruction we then have a chance to participate - great fun. The BBQ is excellent and very good value (this year 32 euros for 2 adults), we opt for 1 lamb and 1 chicken then share, this way you get a taste of both. There are plenty of sun loungers and a good sized pool, this area is kept really clean and tidy. The bar is well frequented by guests and others, there are numerous drinks and cocktails available at reasonable prices, we spent many a night propping up DILLIGAF corner!!!! We met loads of people who are returning guests, some go twice a year, this proves how the Poulimas family work so hard on ensuring that all guests are looked after to a 5 star standard.

me and hubbie stayed for 2 weeks at the Maria from 30/09/13 for 2 weeks, having read some previous negative reviews, felt a little nervous, but need not have worried, the appartments are beautifully kept, nothing is too much trouble and everyone was friendly. This family works so very hard to keep its customers happy, we normally would have eaten out most nights but found the food to be so delicious, we ate in more often than not, the resturaunts around were just not as good, really big portions of food best greek food we have tasted. Would like to thank Yanni and Katerina for helping us to enjoy a stress free two weeks of pure relaxtion, highly recoomended and we will be back.

This was our third stay at Maria Studios and once again we had a wonderful time. Firstly I would like to thank Katerina for squeezing in our two grown up kids at the last minute who decided a free holiday to Corfu was too good an opportunity to miss. Having them with us to celebrate dad's 50th which nicely coincided with the wonderful Greek barbecue night is something we will remember for a long time. A big thank you to Katerina and Yiannis for making it so special. The place is an absolute gem, great hosts, wonderful food, beautiful scenery, clean and comfortable accommodation, lovely pool and superb location. We have never been ones for returning to the same place year after year, but Paleokastritsa and of course Maria Studios are special places and have already booked for next year. Can't wait.

Home again after a wonderful two weeks at Maria Studios.Our hosts Yiannis and Katerina were all that you could wish for and made our stay extra special.My wife and I were holidaying with my brother in law and sister in law and arrived in the early hours of the 14th-15th Sept.When we ventured out the following morning we felt welcome straight away and could feel that there was a warm atmosphere around the place.The other guests were very friendly and settling in was no problem.
Many of the people we spoke to were returning guests (over 10 years was not uncommon).
We could certainly see why - Yiannis as other reviewers have noted could probably do with some therapy to help him get over his shyness! and Katerina is one of the hardest working people we have met.
We ate at several restaurants around paleocastritsa and we can honestly say that the meals we had at Maria Studios were as good as any we had anywhere else.Katerina and Yiannis' mum Maria, are superb cooks and will even provide off menu meals if you have special requests.
The two weeks we were there saw many people come and go but the same friendly camaraderie was there throughout.
Would we go back- you bet.
Thankyou once again Yiannis and Katerina for providing a great holiday base for us to really enjoy our time in Paleocastritsa.

We have just returned from a two week holiday at Yannis and Katrina’s apartments, Maria Studios. I can only echo what everybody else has stated before about the complex, the resort and the hosts - Fantastic.
We were a family of 5 having booked two apartments one for my son and his partner and two year old and another for my wife and I. From the moment that we were greeted by Katrina on the first night this set the tone for the rest of the holiday. The owners of the complex Yannis and Katrina are fantastic hosts and make you feel really at home. Yannis has a fantastic sense of humour and works really hard with the rest of his team to ensure that you have a great time.
Many guests return year after year and I can see why, this was our first time at Maria Studios and we absolutely loved it.
Everything about the holiday was wonderful, if you go do not miss the BBQ/Greek dancing evening on a Saturday, the food is excellent and Yannis is a fantastic host of this evening (it beats watching X factor any day).
If you are a lover of beef stifado you must try it, Yannis's Mum makes the most perfect stifado. The food at the complex is great.
Considering the cheapness of the holiday it represented excellent value for money. To sum up I cannot fault anything about the place, 5 stars well done.
