Wow. I have stayed at mouras studios two times and each time i cannot believe the price (soooo cheap) the quality and the location. Mouras studios really is a true hidden secret. the apartments are crawling distance from the ocean (livadi beach) and beachside restaurants and cafes (about a 5 min walk). Maria, the owner, goes out of her way to make your stay enjoyable (but not overly so, but just plain old greek hospitality).
They offer airport/ferry shuttle, fully equipped apartments with a great kitchen space and massive rooms. The grounds are in pristine shape and the self catering apartments are extremely clean and each apartment has its own patio. The garden is in gorgeous shape, with beautiful seating spaces, gardens and walkways. Each day a cleaner comes in and sweeps and occasionally replenishes your towels, otherwise you are left to your own devices.
Astypalia itself is a quintessential greek island, perfect for relaxing and providing its visitors with an authentic greek experience. I have been to several islands in Greece and nothing compares to the wonderful experience offered on this beautiful island.
Restaurant recommendations: hands down go to Barborossa restaurant in the Chora (around the corner from the windmills).
For lunch go to the beach restaurant which is directly on the sand (not the one closest to mouras studios, but the more rustic restaurant with the crocodile sign). Handsdown The best tzatzikii in all of Greece and try the red salad specialty (very good).
We will be back!
