“Nice and quite studios”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2013

We spent a very nice week at Kosmos Studios. The apartments are spacious, clean and recently refurbished. They are located in a very quite area, 2 minutes walking fro Livadia Beach.

Paul and Helen were always really helpful.

We highly recommend this accommodation.

My wife and I stayed at Kosmos on our honeymoon trip and had a great time. The owners, Paul and Helen, welcomed us into their pension and gave us many great tips about seeing Tilos. They were always around, making sure everything was going well with our stay, and even invited us up for a drink the first night.

The actual apartments are also very nice: large, clean, shady, and quiet. We really liked the privacy and the fact that we had two patios. There is a small kitchenette in each unit as well, and we bought breakfast and lunch groceries in town and cooked at the apartment. The other best part is that they are so close to town you can walk there in 5 minutes, but you don't feel like you're in town.

Overall, we really enjoyed our stay on Tilos, at Kosmos, and felt that it was a great getaway from the larger cities and islands, and, surprisingly, ended up being one of our favorite places to stay.

Having never visited Tilos before we were unsure of what to expect, but found it the perfect place to relax and get away from the hustle of everyday life. Kosmos studios situated on a quiet lane but only a minute from the sea and tavernas are spacious and spotlessly clean. With the four studios being offset and having patios front and back they give both privacy and shade/sun through out the day. Paul picks up and delivers you back to the ferry and even your groceries are delivered free to the door of your studio from two of the supermarkets in the village. Tavernas on the sea front all serve good quality food and provide sunbeds and umbrellas at no charge (but your patronage for food and drinks helps them to provide this service). Paul and Helen are the perfect hosts, very friendly and are on hand to provide advice and suggestions about the island if required. Lovely island, perfect accommodation.

Just come back from the most wonderful weeks holiday staying at the Kosmos apartments, in the little town of Livardia, on the Greek island of Tilos, which is an easy fast ferry sale from the port of Rhodes main town, where you leave the crowds behind and step off the world. I booked through the Kosmos web site which is all in English, and contains lots of useful information, including how easy it is to travel there. The apartments are owned by an English couple Paul and Helen, who live on the island and speak Greek. They are that rare example of the perfect hosts, always available if required for a mine of local information, and advice if you need it, but discrete enough to respect your privacy. They actually came down to the port in their car to meet me off the ferry, which I think is a thoughtful touch. The apartments are without doubt the best I have ever stayed in during my many trips to Greece, they are large, airy, and bright, and have an excellent level of equipment, they are spotlessly clean with big bathrooms, and due to the patio spaces at each end, and the way that they are orientated,are always private and have both sun and shade at the same time, very clever.
The apartments are set on the flat a little way out of the main town and harbour away from any noise, nestled in one of the greenest spots on the island, across the road from a tiny enchanting Greek church. It is approximately two minuets walk to the beach, and the little supermarket, and the ice-cream parlour which has sun loungers, and a further minute to seafront restaurants, and a tiny Greek bar called ( To Mikro), where you can sit on the roof and listen to the gentle lapping waves and watch the sunset, what more do you need ? There is a bus service to all parts of the island, and if you are feeling energetic there are several interesting round walks that you can do, and various walks to far flung remote beaches all via reasonable paths. There is an ancient monastery set high in spectacular cliff surroundings. The island is a nature reserve so the native flowers, herbs, and birds add colour and scent to the low meadows and hills, while the soaring central rugged mountains dotted with abandoned ruins on their crests, form a silent, peaceful, and timeless backdrop, to the sleepy ongoing life of the little harbour town of Livardia. Where the old men still sit outside the little caffinion bar in the square to play backgammon and avoid their wives. If you want to experience the real Greek islands there is no better place to vist than Kosmos apartments on Tilos, I cannot recommend it enough.

Kosmos studios are an excellent choice for a place to stay on Tilos. It is not on the seafront, but just a few moments walk away. The facilities are fine and Paul and Helen are very good hosts. They will meet you at the ferry dock and take you back when it's time to leave. They have good advice but are not always in your face.

Room Tip: All rooms at the moment are ground floor. There will be a new first story unit available soon.

I've travelled to the Greek islands since 2000 and this year is the first time that I've returned to stay at the same property. As soon as I left in 2010, I couldn't wait to come back. Tilos is a beautiful, peaceful, friendly island and Kosmos Studios provide the perfect place to stay. The studios are a minute's walk from the beach in Livadia which is uncrowded with crystal clear water and ideal for swimming. The beach is backed by a handful of lovely tavernas and the occasional shop. There is a great bakery, more tavernas, a few shops, a pharmacy and sufficient amenities in the village only a few minutes' walk away. This is apart from the rest of the island to explore. Everything feels unspoiled, traditional and welcoming. I found the Kosmos studios to be absolutely perfect. I've stayed in two of them and they were both spacious, impeccably clean and ideally kitted-out with everything you need for a relaxed holiday. There is a terrace at the front and at the back of each property both of which catch the sun and the layout of the apartments means that you're not overlooked. The value for money is amazing. Helen and Paul are great hosts - they know everything there is to know about the island and are incredibly helpful and friendly. If you want to enjoy the solitude you'll be left to your own devices but equally if you need anything - help, advice, or a great couple to go for a drink with, you need look no further. A great place to holiday.

Room Tip: All great.

We stayed at Kosmos studios from 23/8 to 7/9. Studios are spotlessly clean, bright and uncluttered which gives a real feeling of having loads of space. Very well equipped with the best bathroom we've ever had in Greece!! The weather was very hot during our stay, and although there's no air con we found the ceiling fan sufficient if you opened the windows (make sure you've got the mozzie screens shut). Situated about a 5 minute walk from the beach up a quiet lane they are lovely and peaceful (the only noise we heard was cicadas) and many a happy hour was spent on the terrace watching the lizards, falcons and the heron being chased by the crows.

Lots of really good tavernas nearby serving a high quality of food, and just when you think it's time to head off home to bed, a great little bar (Mikro) on the way home (well it would be rude not to pop in for a quick nightcap or two....)

Helen and Paul are the perfect hosts, there if you needed them but not obtrusive. I'd happily recommend these studios to anyone
