We stayed at the Nostos Studios for 2 weeks and enjoyed every minute apart from the weather which was very mixed, from sunshine to thunderstorms! Although this didn't bother us too much as we got out and about walking and exploring the area.
One of the walks was from Golden Beach to Thassos Town by the coastal path, which we can highly recommend as it is a straight forward walk following the track with the sea to your right all the way! The track also takes you past a marble quarry and onto Vathi beach, which looks like it is marble sand!
Another lovely walk is up to Potamia and across to Panagia. If you're not feeling energetic there is also the local bus which will take you to both villages.
The Nostos rooms are cleaned every day and are kept spotless. The towels are lovely and fluffy and the best we have had whilst holidaying in Greece. The views from the rooms are fantastic, you can look to the right for a mountain view or to the left for a sea view...spoilt for choice! Our balcony got the early morning sun and in the evening it was shaded. We enjoyed sitting on the balcony having breakfast whilst taking in the views.
The gardens surrounding the Nostos are very well maintained, due to the hard work every day by George and Thanasis. The seating area around the bar is very relaxing to enjoy a drink, whether it be after a hard days walking or at the beach or in the evening. Try one of George's frappies as he makes the best we have tasted.
There are some lovely restaurants to try in the area, and more too in Skala Potamia. We enjoyed Finikas, try their seafood pasta and the roast lamb. Another very special place we found was Sotiris which is the last restaurant on Golden Beach before the jetty, near the steps upto Vigli. The food is freshly prepared so enjoy the atmosphere while waiting. The 'courgette balls' are the best we have tasted, and the 'sousoukakia' (meatballs) are amazing....ask for them in tomato sauce. Say hello to Demitri if you go, he is very helpful when you are choosing your meal from swopping chips for oven potatoes etc...
Nearing the end of our holiday we went on the Zeus boat trip, which was very relaxing. The meal we had for lunch on board the boat was very tasty, pork steak with potatoes, rice and salad, served with bread & wine.Very good value.
We will return to Thassos and would definately stay again at the Nostos, one of the best rooms we have had in the many Greek Islands we have visited.
Thanks again George and family for a fantastic 2 weeks, we're missing the island already! xx
