Having visited several Greek islands over the years we've now stayed at the Limnionas for 7 years out of the last 10. Our son and daughter (adults now) even tag along with us at the last minute as they have such happy memories of the hotel, Limnionas Bay and particularly the owners, Nicos and Tanja. It is not so much a hotel as a central reception core and laid back layout of rooms and small apartments in two storey format.
The setting is beautiful with a quiet bay and beach two minutes away and the ever impressive spectacle of the huge "rock" of Mount Kerkis behind. We can't think of a better place to be. Apart from the warm welcome in the Limnionas Bay restaurant, which with its open terrace is more like a taverna, there are 4 other good tavernas within a 5 or 6 minute walk. Don't go for nightlife, as apart from one small bar (Sea Park), it is one of the peaceful places you could find. A 40 minute "stroll" (or 10 minute drive - not for the fainthearted!) will take you along the coast west to "The Taverna at the End of the World" - Andreas is an excellent cook and the swimming and snorkelling are amazing. Setting is spectacular.
If you want more bustle, particularly at night, a five minute drive will take you to Votsolakia (Kampos) where there are more bars and tavernas and people!
Ideally a car is useful here - there is a limited bus service. We have always found Star car hire in Votsolakia excellent (Maria will sort you out!). Very competetive rates.
This is a Greek hotel with warmth and charm - it's not a 5 star escape - it's true Greece and we love it! There's a choice of studios, suites, hotel rooms and there's also a charming "villa" within the grounds that sleeps 4. Something for everyone!
