Galissas Studios
Reviewed June 8, 2010

Galissas Studios lived up to and beyond its excellent reputation given by past reviewers. The standard of cleanliness and maintenance were very high. Every day, the pool's filtration system was checked and the surrounds cleaned. There are sunloungers plus tables, chairs and umbrellas around the pool.Yannis, the owner and agent for Olympic Holidays with his wife, Alexandra seem to have thought of evrything and deliver their services with unfailing courtesy and cheerfulness. We had a delayed flight because of fog in Manchester so our late arrival meant that thesupermarket would be closed. However, Yannis made sure that the shop would stay open past its closing time so we could buy the essentials - tea, milk, bread and wine. The whole site felt safe and secure. We thoroughly recommend Galissas Studios - the brochure photo does not do it full justice.

Nice room, private balcony, good choice of TV channels, large pool, lovely views. Library of books to be borrowed. No wifi which was the only thing I would like added. Was further to walk to the beach than some, but worth it. Would definitely stay again

Lovely quiet location in late May. Perfect for us because most of the tavernas in Galissas and the two mini-markets were open but some of the livelier-looking bars hadn't woken up yet. I suspect Galissas could be pretty busy in July/August but the studios are set away from the main village street. Studios lovely - very clean, less basic than some I've stayed in, gorgeous small pool. Very helpful and friendly owners but not at all intrusive. Loved Syros, it feels like the real Greece - Hermopoulis and Ano Syros both stunning and bustling with people living and working there rather than tourists. Good bus service circles the bottom half of the island but also check out car hire from the studio owners, it's surprisingly reasonable.

Great studios, cleaned daily, air-con included in price, good pool but no pool bar, which can be an advantage, ie very quiet. Short strole to town and beach, disappointing Tavernas, no Stiffado or Kleftiko? Psaropoula Taverna probably the best of a bad bunch. Aithrio snack bar serves fantastic Crepes, large beer €2.50. Good Beach, shallow water, no pebbles. Good bus service (20 past the hour) €1.40 to Hermopoulis. One sports bar with pool table and big screens. No ATM, nearest one is in Finikas, 5 min bus ride away. Beach sunbeds X 2 and umbrella €7.00.

Super stay at Galissas studios very clean best studios we have stayed in on a Greek island. Lovely pool very peaceful and relaxing studios set in a quiet area away from the main road.
Very friendly staff information office in Galissas is very helpful a good library of books to read while you are relaxing in the sun.
Beautiful beach very safe magnificent sunsets a small butgood selection of places to eat again very friendly with lots of good food.The capital city is lovely and anos syros the old town is a must. The island of Syros is ideal for a relaxing holiday not for those wanting a non stop night life althiugh plenty going on in the capital.
The ferry journey over from Mykonos is an experience but an enjoyable one and arriving in the capital is a sight to see. All in all I would recomend the island of Syros and especially the Galissas studios. Sun and sand a truly Greek experience and one we d love to repeat someday.

The apartment was clean and comfy. It had all the necessary equipment and a full size kettle! The apartments were cleaned every second day, and towels and new bedding also changed then.

The pool is quite small but with only a 5 minute walk (past a bar and a beach side taverna that you can get drinks to go!) to the beach this was fine. The beach is wonderful. The sea gently sloped and excellent for young children. There are loungers and umbrellas for rental, but do suggest you get there by 10.30am to guarantee one! The beach is sandy so good for making sandcastles! At one end of the beach there are a couple of girls that will take your food/drink requirements and fetch them from the local taverna so you don't need to even have to stop your sunbathing! but if you want some exercise at the other end there is a nice taverna and supermarket.

There are only 5 places to eat in the village, in my opinion the best two - sunset and sabbas situated to catch the wonderful sunset. There are plenty of supermarkets but only one that has english newspapers! A lovely bakers that bake fresh everyday. A couple of bars - one of which does have sports!

The bus into town is regular and even on time! There is actually two buses - one that takes 15 mins and one that takes a nice scenic route of 45 mins.

The resort is quiet and friendly. When we went there were lots of Greeks on holiday!!!

The only down side of Galissas Studios/apartments is that when there are empty apartments the owner will rent them out to island hoppers/back packers.
