“Very relaxing break”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2012

We stayed at the Elgoni for a week at the end of April . The apartments are basic but bright and clean with a great view from the balcony . Nikos and Helen are very friendly and helpful with anything you need to know .Piskopiano and Koutoulafari are both a short stroll away and are very charming villages with brilliant restaurants , heaven we would definatly go back . Linda and Trevor , Clitheroe.

We stayed at the Elgoni for two weeks and thoroughley enjoyed every minute. Nikos and his family would do anything to make your stay at the Elgoni very enjoyable, his father even picked some fruit and herbs for us.The apartment we were staying in had the best view, Piskopiano was a great place to stay,would go again.

Elgoni Apartments are a family run complex with 15 rooms, the are typical greek rooms with twin beds, small kitchen area and a small bathroom. Nikos, Helen and Nikos's Mum and Dad are so welcoming and would do anything to make your stay enjoyable. Breakfast and snacks are availiable at the bar, all freshly cooked, (Helen Nikos's wife even made us some fresh stuffed vine leaves as a treat) The garden's at Elgoni are immaculate with lovely flowers all around the complex. The pool area is also immaculate with plenty of sun beds. It's so peaceful and the views are fantastic.Will be going back.

Elgoni apartments are situated in a quiet village. Views from each apartment are spectacular. Basic accomodation but clean and everything you need. Swimming pool on your doorstep and a well stocked bar for proper drinks.
Nikos and his family make you so welcome. Nothing is too much trouble.

Elgoni is a small, family owned and run complex set on a steep hillside above Piskopiano Village. The village itself is about a kilometre uphill from Hersonnisos so it is quite a hike from the beach but the views across to the coast make the climb worthwhile. The studios themselves are very simple and quite compact but are clean and have everything you need as a base for the surrounding area. There is plenty of hanging and drawer space, a small kitchen area with a table and chairs, fridge, two electric rings and enough crockery cutlery etc. The balcony has another table and chair and a clothes drier. The bathroom is typically Greek (i.e. a hand held shower and a 'wetroom' arrnangement with a central plug) Large towels are provided but not hand towels, a bathmat or tea towels. Also worth mentioning is that toilet paper (in common with many Greek apartments these days) is not replenished after the first roll runs out so best to take supplies with you. Same goes for washing up liquid and soap. The room was cleaned and towels were changed every two or three days and bedding changed twice a week. There is no TV in the studios but the bar has one. There is a nice pool area which gets the sun all day with a decent size pool and plenty of sunbeds. The reception area has a bar and small terrace serving drinks and snacks all day. The owners were a lovely old couple who were welcoming and friendly. They don't speak much English but the barman is fluent and also very obliging. The views from our balcony were stunning and it was lovely to sit out with a drink and watch the sunset. The location was really peaceful too so ideal for couples wanting to chill out and relax. The village itself is just a couple of minutes walk down a steep hill and some steps has plenty of bars and restaurants plus shops, minimarkets etc. The other two hill villages of Koutouloufari and Old Hersonnisos are a few minutes walk away so this accommodation is really central. We had a lovely time here and would certainly recommned it to others who like the real Greece experience.

Room Tip: ask for a first floor apartment at the top of the hill to get the best views
