“What an amazing Family”
Reviewed July 4, 2011

We ended up here after PiskoPiano Village apartments told us they had overbooked in total 6 couples who also came from the same place were to follow , Helen could not do enough for us. she was really understanding and used to taking a overspill from the same hotel which has been happening for some time now. On arriving we were very upset but Helen , George , Costas and the family made our holiday great. The rooms were very clean. Small pool but a lovely quite place to stay. We were all made to feel very welcome and enjoyed our stay, Would recommend these apartments.

The apartments we had booked at Piskopiano Village Hotel were double booked and we were sent to Matheos Apartments. We didn't know what to expect but all turned out well, better than expected.

The welcome we received from our hosts, when we arrived without notice, at 11.30pm was out of this world, We couldn't have been made to feel more welcome and nothing was too much trouble. Our original booking at Piskopiano Village was for an apartment for four. Helen was concerned that she only had studios downstairs available and so were we, arriving in the pitch black, not being able to see what was out of our window. We needn't have worried, as although we had no view, we looked out onto olive trees and it was wonderfully peaceful. Helen arranged a studio for two and a studio for three for our family of three so we had plenty of room. One balcony had shade and the other sun, so perfect.

People say the rooms are basic but we have been travelling to Greece for 33 years and found these nowhere near as basic as we have had with some package holidays. The shower had a tray, curtain and a hook for the shower head and the water pressure was excellent. In the kitchen we had (more than basic equipment we think)a kettle, a frying pan and a large and medium pan, as well as a washing up bowl and draining rack plus t. towel. We also had a breadboard which is not always the norm. Cleaning was nearly every day and the bed linen and towels of good quality. We had no complaints at all and were actually pleased to have ended up here,it being far more "our cup of tea," as were all the other folks that ended up being sent here from Piskopiano Village Hotel.

There is a snack bar and although the pool is small, it is perfect for cooling off. The family hold regular BBQ's and are very sociable!

Room Tip: Views from the upper floors.

Have just returned from a week at these delightful apartments, located on the outskirts of Piskopiano village. Situated just a few yards down a side road, the apartments are very quiet, but within easy walking distance of small supermarkets, tavernas, shops and bars. The owners are so helpful and friendly...nothing is too much trouble for them.
Brothers, George and Costas both have a great sense of humour, and really appreciated my attempts at speaking Greek.
George's wife, Helen is a real darling and full of Irish wit and charm.
The apartments are quite basic, but spotlessly clean and snacks and drinks are available at the pool bar at reasonable prices.
The pool is small, but ideal for a quick dip to cool off.....if you want to do some serious swimming, the sea is only a 15min walk away, though you may want to get a taxi back up to the village.
The Sunday BBQ was a huge success; the food was good and plentiful. Helens two daughters entertained us with dancing, with everyone joining in after several shots of Raki.
I plan to go back in September and am really looking forward to meeting the family again

Room Tip: Ask for an apartment rather than a studio

The Matheos Studios are in the tiny village of Piskopiano, which is set on the slopes of Mount Harakas. Despite its small size, the village is a bit of a foodie haven. There are plenty of tavernas a minute's walk from the studios, a lot of which have terraces with panoramic sea views. When you want to hit the sand, Hersonissos Beach is a 20-minute walk downhill. The complex has a friendly feel thanks to its owners George, Kosta and Helen, who go out of their way to make you feel welcome. They put on a weekly barbecue by the small pool.
