I just got back from ten wonderful days in Stalis, where me and my girlfriend had a really great time. We stayed in one of the apartments of Lia Sophia, in a double room. The apartment was simple but cute: there was one bedroom, a bathroom, a kitchen-living room and a spacious balcony where there was a table for lunch. The air conditioning is an extra, but it costs only 6€ per day if you want it. The welcome was excellent: the whole is run by a greek family where Giorgos, the owner, is really friendly and very helpful. He booked us a taxi from the airport (40 € instead of paying 45-50) and he is always available to provide information on excursions, locals, facilities, and anything else.
The most important thing is where the apartments are located: very close to the sea. I mean, very. A two minute walk to the beach where you can rent two chairs and an umbrella for only 5 € per day, and where there is also a funny lifeguard named Besnik that will make you smile often during the day with his jokes! A few steps from the apartment there is the shopping street just along the coast, where you can go out for evening walks and where you will find many pubs, restaurants, shops of various kinds, supermarkets and excursions centers (I recommend Sparrow Travel, where a nice gentleman with mustache works).
To conclude, I advice Lia Sophia from all points of view.
