“2 minutes walk from the beach”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

If you want to walk only 2 minutes from the best baby friendly beach of the island...
If you want to swim in clear blue sea...
If you want to rest under trees on the beach...
Then you have to stay to this apartments! The complex should have more organised outer place. The place is very good for family vacations. 10 minutes walk from the center.
Find Passagio at the harbour and eat omelate.
1 week max for family vacation. Car is needed to go around the island.

We arrived in Serifos without having booked anything.
Βαγγέλη (Vangeli) came by the port to pick up a couple that had booked on his gray wan which said "rooms to let" we asked if he had any rooms available near the sea, he said yes and so our love adventure began.
Everything is done beautifully in these apartments, from the beds in wrough iron, to the lacey mosquito net over the bed and beautiful patio area were breakfast is served. Breakfast is delicious with bread, honey, jam, cheese, olives and the amazingly creamy yoghurt which comes with some moorish, oranges preserved in honey...a real treat.
We stayed in room 6 which has a view of the sea and overlooks the garden, which is full of plants and flowers. At the end of the garden one can access the little road which leads to the sea.
The sea is a 2 min walk away.
Lovely trees offer their shade and a Restaurant offering delicious food at lunch time and drinks throughout the day is found on the beach.
The apartments are a 10-15 min walk to the port where restaurants as shops can be found.
Affordable prices too!
What more to say. Go to Serifos and try this out. You won't regret it!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2011

I arrived at the lovely, peaceful island of Serifos on the night of June 9th and was given a ride from the port by Mr Vangelis on his van. My room at Dorkas Studios was charming and nicely decorated and there was a sea- and garden view from the balcony (see photos). Serifos is a rather windy island, so you have to be careful with the windows and doors, btw.
The room was equipped with a fridge, hot-plate, TV and air-conditioning and also nice shampoo-bags and toiletries in the bathroom.

Livadakia is a really nice sandy beach just a few minutes' walk from this hotel. In June you could always find a peacuful spot there and the water was not just beautifully turquoise but also refreshing. Livadi town is also just a short walk, and to the main town, Chora, it's easy to go by bus (almost as exciting as a ride in a roller coaster) or climb on foot (at least downwards on a hot day...)

This hotel and island were a lovely and relaxing start to my island hopping trip last summer. This year I'll be heading towards Samos :)

We stayed at the associated Aigaion Studios with breakfast at Dorkas. Both of which were owned by Mr Vangelis who gave us a typical friendly Greek welcome and arranged transfer to and from the port. The apartment was lovely and spacious with a stunning view of the sea towards Sifnos and a short walk from Livadakia beach and Livadi port. Breakfast was a very simple affair. There are a handful of tavernas along the front at Livadi. Serifos is well worth a visit for a few days as part of an island hopping holiday.
