Staying at Live-Bio and getting to know Magdalena and Periklis was one of the best experiences I had! This holiday thought me how to enjoy every moment, hour and second of life.
I stayed here for one month and if I could afford it I would have stayed for as long as I could. The view from the room is breath taking and one in a lifetime experience! This is the place if you want to relax and meditate and forget about the busy life and the stresses it involves, and to get to know beautiful people of Galatas and Poros, do yoga by the beach with Magdalena : ) or the balcony, enjoy the Greek's delicious food (I strongly recommend the food in Plaka's Beach restaurant!).
Live-Bio is situated in the beautiful village of Galatas, opposite the island of Poros where most of the night lives are. The land is full of olive, lemon, orange trees; there’s also walnut trees where you can pick them and eat them fresh, pomegranate tree and if you look more you will find wild tea and different kind of herbs growing on this land!
In this part of the world you will know that money doesn't count, but relationship and trust between the people!
I will be going back there with friends and family! :)
Thank you Live-Bio, thank you Megdalena and Periklis, and thank you Greece! :)

“Perfect Escape with Spectacular Views to Renew Your Spirit!”
Reviewed October 30, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

My husband and I felt very lucky to spend a whole month staying at this incredible and special part of the world... The owners, Periklis and Magdelena are creating a really interesting community of like-minded people called Live-Bio. There are 6 individual, private apartments, all boasting large terraces, views over Poros and gorgeous sunrises. At night-time, the views are as magical as the early mornings!

When we arrived on the boat from Athens, we were met by Periklis (who also kindly dropped us off on the morning of our departure). Upon arriving in Galatas, he asked us if we wanted to go food shopping. This was a great idea as he pointed out some of his personal recommendations of the local delicacies!

The apartment was really well designed - totally perfect for either a short or long stay. (Periklis told us that they have had some previous guests love it so much that they stayed there for a year!) We can totally see how that could happen.... In the apartment itself, there is a desk perfect for working (we loved the super fast wifi), an L shaped sofa, a large bed, with lots of comfortable pillows, living space (great for yoga practice), dining/eating kitchen space, and in a separate room, a beautiful modern bathroom with a wonderful high pressure shower.

The location is ideal as a base either for seeing the Peloponnese, or if you are just looking for a chill-out, relaxing holiday. And, whilst Poros is great with lots of coffee shops, we also really loved the smaller area of Galatas, with its wonderful artisan coffee shop (and in-house fresh bakery) called La Frianderie. Galatas also has lots of authentic Greek restaurants (that we loved to eat at), as well as a funky bar called Caffe Pappou, the bakeries, super-market and fresh, local food markets. It also has some incredible walks and nice beach areas, lovely for swimming. From the centre of Galatas, it is just a short a 1-minute boat crossing over to Poros (a really fun and fast trip over, which we loved to do and costs just 1 euro).

There are many things we could rave about our holiday but some of the highlights for us were tasting the incredibly fresh extra virgin olive oil, that had come from the surrounding olive trees (you don't get much more local than that! And, came in beautifully designed bottles), the Greek food, the walk we did over to the Monastery with its' spectacular and breath-taking views everywhere, the lovely hospitality and friendliness we received from Magdalena and Periklis, as well as the other lovely people staying at Live-Bio.

We also enjoyed a lovely day trip to Methona to see the volcano and ate fresh fish for lunch on the wharf of a very small, but cute fishing village - which was amazing! We had a wonderful, long and relaxing stay @Live-Bio with Periklis & Magdelena, and would love to come back to visit again another time in the future!

Magdalena (we did not meet Periklis) helped us the second day with shopping by car because the location of the apartment is a bit isolated; this really helped us. the apartment itself is wonderful, excellent bed, beautiful view, quiet and full of light. Kitchen tools are a bit sober when you want to cook yourself; restaurants & shops are in the nearby village, appr. 20 min. by foot downhill. BTW: Privacy is very good !

“Unforgettable!”
Reviewed September 29, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Words can't describe how perfect our stay was and the pictures hardly do the place justice! Our stay was everything we were hoping for in our Greece getaway and more. The views are breath taking. Every morning during our stay I woke up, looked out the window and thought I was still dreaming! The owners our extremely hospitable and helpful, making us feel welcome from the moment we arrived. They also answered every questions we had before and during the trip. They are a wealth of knowledge for the area and Greece. Stop scrolling through other places and book your trip here. You will not regret it!

“Stunning views, incredible friendly hosts and much much more”
Reviewed September 27, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Magdalena and Periklis made our stay unforgettable! In fact we came to stay in Porros only for a fiew days, but in the end it felt like a two weeks experience. The place has an unforgettable view over the entire bay...that alone is fantastic. From the evening we arrived (they even picked us up from the ferry) we felt like had met friends. Magdalena and Periklis are very open and inviting. My favorite experience was the trip with Periklis sailing boat! A day trip I will never forget... oh and we even got a back flip performance and home made bread for free ;) I could go on forever, but then psssst don`t tell too many people... so we will be able to return soon :)

“Lovely, spacious self-catering accommodation in a beautiful setting”
Reviewed September 16, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

I would highly, highly recommend Live-Bio. I went for a long weekend and wished I could have stayed longer.

My apartment was clean, nicely decorated and had everything I wanted/ needed including stunning views over the Aegean sea! Sitting on the balcony (which had table and chairs and lots of room) watching the sun set behind Poros really was pretty special.

The owners, Periklis and Magda, were very helpful and friendly and were very happy to organise any activities you might want or recommend restaurants/ places to visit. I went sailing one day with Periklis and some of the guests staying in one of the other apartments and had a great time.

The accommodation is well placed as it is lovely and quiet but you are only a short walk to the beach and into the nearest town (Galatas) from which you can get a ferry to the island of Poros (which has a lovely town, great beaches and nice restaurants) in a few minutes.

I will definitely go back again and would highly recommend Greece, Poros and Live-Bio to anyone!

“Excellent place run by people with passion”
Reviewed September 15, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

That was our first time in Greece and we felt like in haven. Spacious and clean apartments equipped with everything you need, including coffee or organic Greek olive oil to taste. Magdalena and Peryklis took care of us, suggesting great places to visit or dine, food to taste and organising trips tailored to our needs. Thanks to their time and attention, just in one week we managed to experience so much Greece and Greek culture. Thank you very much.
