In addition, we encourage our guests to take advantage of the open paths going up the mountain and the olive and lemon groves in the area Live-Bio is a lot more than a business to us. It is a lifestyle and a way to meet people! Interacting with our guests is a core element of our offering. We organise a number of activities in the local area (wine tasting, sailing, hiking etc) and we throw a dinner for our guests every now and then, just to meet each other better! The property is on the mainland (Peloponnese) just outside the town of Galatas, offering gorgeous views to the island of Poros. Highly recommended for connoisseurs of relaxation and romance. You will find all amenities you require in the region, including grocery stores, local produce markets, a beautiful spa and beaches (closest is a 5min walk away or 500m down the hill from Live-Bio). We also offer a number of activities in the area (excursions and day trips to various ancient sites and historical locations, wine tasting, cooking classes, yoga, cycling, hikes and many more) as well as memorable sailing trips in the region. Our region is a great place for visiting nearby beaches, historical sites (including two UNESCO World Heritage Sites - the Sanctuary of Asclepius with the gorgeous Ancient Theatre of Epidaurus and the Palace of Mycenae in Tiryns), the stunning volcanic peninsula of Methana, the wine making region of Nemea and the famous Lemon Tree grove which is only 500 meters away. Poros Island is 2 minutes away on a taxi boat (costs 1 euro) from the town of Galatas. We are 1.5 kilometers out of the town of Galatas on the Peloponnese, a leisurely 20 minute walk including a steep 200 meters uphill (hey, you cannot have gorgeous views and be at sea level! – we are located about 40 meters above sea level, the 200 meters is the walking distance, but still pretty steep!) Being on the mainland, our property can be accessed by car and by ferry. The drive from the Athens International Airport is 2.5 hours on a well sign posted route, also serviced by a regular bus connection. Alternatively, guests can pick up the catamaran from the Port of Piraeus and be at Poros in 1 hour. We will pick you up right there and take you to our property with our comfy car. If you wish, we can also organise a door to door pick-up from the airport, bringing you straight to your room with no hassle! Come and enjoy the silence, whilst being a stone's throw away from the vibe. Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: MHTE0262K124K0320001

Short group trip
We had a wonderful time at our hosts' place. They were extremely helpful in suggesting restaurants, activities and helped us a lot with the logistics for our group of 8 ladies from Portugal. Accommodation is great and the beds particularly comfy; the place itself has a natural charm that allows you to relax and soak in the Greek way of life. We can clearly recommend this in place and would come back anytime. Make sure to plan time and capacity for public transport, in particular during peak times/high season

Paradise on earth
At Live-Bio a spacious room, well-equipped kitchen and a breathtaking sea view is awaiting you. It’s a perfect place for beach birds, island hoppers, hiking enthusiasts or simply Greek food lovers (already miss Apagio Taverna) - the region has everything to offer. This paradise on earth would not be perfect without the two admirable hosts. Magdalena and Perikles are very generous, happy to help, advise on most beautiful sights or simply share precious moments and memories over one, two… glas of wine :) Thank you, we truly enjoyed it and hope to come back soon again.

Beautiful Live-Bio
I spent a few days with a friend in one of the very spacious studios. The place is amazing and had everything we needed. We rented a scooter that helped us to move around and visit the beautiful beaches and nice restaurants that are nearby. Magda and Perikilis are amazing hosts.

A sense of freedom
Rare are the times in life when a person gets to experience a true sense of freedom, that was my experience staying at Magdalena's place. The spaces, the breathtaking view, the fresh air and the special bit are unlike any other place I've been in Greece. Looking forward to visiting again

More than a home away from home! What an incredible place. Be sure that you definitely can relax and forget of any stress you might have in life. Great place to see sunrises, -sets and to stargaze. Very nice cozy town close by with great vendors (coffee shops, bakery, butchery, ...), everything you need. Poros island is a 10min trip away and easy to reach. Most certainly, the hosts Magda and Periklis are just amazing people and they help you with any question or request you have. Don't be shy and just enjoy this hidden gem.

Life Changing Experience.
I was not familiar with this area of Greece and fell in love with the area and the hosts immediately. It was one of the most memorable trips of my life. The accommodation was clean, tidy, and had all the requirements needed when traveling. Views were spectacular. Normally my partner does the reviews but I was compelled to give such a high rating due to the host, who were extremely knowledgeable of the area and could tell they care about the people in the community. Photos are from my room. Will return again!

Great stay in the apartment
This was our 4th time staying at Live Bio. If you have car, LB is well situated as it is far enough from the crowds on Poros Island but close enough to Galatas (for coffee runs or grocery shopping) as well as surrounding attractions to see. LB is child friendly, we stayed with 3 boys (ages 3, 5, 7) who loved the common and pool area. We stayed in the new apartmemt which has 3 bedrooms and big open plan kitchen/living/dinning room. The kitchen has everything you need should you feel the need to cook. Magda and Periklis are superb hosts who will definitely give you great tips to make your stay memorable.

Map
About the neighborhood
The property is on the mainland (Peloponnese), 1.5 kilometers outside the town of Galatas. This is a 20 minute walk (at least when the summer heat is not scorching everything) including a steep 200 meters uphill (hey, you cannot have gorgeous views and be at sea level! – we are located about 40 meters above sea level, the 200 meters is the walking distance, but still pretty steep!) You will find all amenities you require in the region, including grocery stores, local produce markets, a beautiful spa and beaches. We also offer a number of activities in the area, as well as memorable sailing trips in the region. Our region is a great place for visiting nearby beaches, historical sites (including two UNESCO World Heritage Sites - the Sanctuary of Asclepius with the gorgeous Ancient Theatre of Epidaurus and the Palace of Mycenae in Tiryns), the stunning volcanic peninsula of Methana, the wine making region of Nemea and the famous Lemon Tree forest which is only 500 meters away. Poros Island is 2 minutes away on a taxi boat (costs 1 euro) from the town of Galatas. Come and enjoy the gorgeous views and the silence, whilst being a stone's throw away from the vibe.
Access
Car not needed
How to get there
Generally you don't need a car to get around, but if walking is not your thing, you might consider renting one in Athens or locally in Galatas town. Live-Bio is located a leisurely 20 minute walk including a steep 200 meters uphill (hey, you cannot have gorgeous views and be at sea level! – we are located about 40 meters above sea level, the 200 meters is the walking distance, but still pretty steep!) from the town of Galatas. From Galatas you can also go across to Poros island, 2min trip by taxi boat, 1 EUR one way). There is also a car rental place in Galatas so if you decide to do some road trips in the area, you can just get a car for a day or a few days and discover the nearby places. You can find Live-Bio on Google maps as well.
