Maria Markouli is one of those rare people who exude goodwill and optimism 24 hours a day. She was a delight. Warm, friendly and very helpful. The ideal hostess. Her studios are light and airy with a wonderful view of the port. She is a fund of information on the island and speaks excellent English.
The port is bustling with ferries docking by day and by night. She fetches her clients from the port and delivers them back in time for the departing ferry. Very useful given the steepness of the ascent to the Markouli Studios.
The only drawback is the proximity to the neighbours' patio. That said its a paradise and the village has not yet been swamped by tourists. It's a must for very aficionado of Greek Isles.
