Maritsa Studios is the perfect place for a vacation. Quiet location with a private beach across the road. Kitchnette to prepare meals, very comfortable bed (we like it not too hard and it’s one of the best we’ve had away from our home) and such a nice owner. There are a few lovely towns not too far away but we do recommend that you rent a car. We would come back to Maritsa Studios anytime and warmly recommend it to friends and family.
We stayed 1-6 sept and had a great time. The studio was as described with good air con, a fan, large private terrace with a sea view, comfortable bed, coffee maker, toaster, kettle. Everything you need. The location is very quiet and there is a private beach with loungers and kayaks and a lovely swing seat to sit and enjoy the cooler night air. You don’t need transport but a bike or car is useful to get further afield and enjoy the island as there are lots of other nice places. Manolis was really helpful and picked us up from the airport and recommended places to visit. it was amazing value for money, a delightful place and if we are in Samos again we would come back. Thank you!
We really liked the experience in Samos and Maritsa Studios. The owner, Manolis was very welcoming during our stay at the hotel. If you want to have a nice holiday in Samos you can stay in this sweet hotel :)
If you want to visit a Island that is not over crouded and has no big hotels just loads of charming hosts .Great restautants, archiological sites, a short boat ride to Turkey ( Kusadese). Fun and different beaches. this should please you.
We spent 3 weeks in August at the Maritsa Studios in Potokaki, Samos. It was a perfect holiday and the accomodation offered much more than we expected. Manolis, the owner, came to pick us up at the airport when we arrived, and we immediately realised he was a very friendly and careful host. His studios are very well kept, spacious enough, very clean and comfortable, with a kitchenette with all you need for cooking, air conditioning (which we didn't need because there was always fresh air from the windows), ceiling fan and lovely balconies with sea view. We also found a hair dryer in our studio (studio 5), which wasn't written on the Intenet site, and there is a washing machine at the guests' disposal. Manolis cleans the studios everyday, and he would often leave fresh fruit and vegetables from his garden on our table. They tasted so good! The beautiful Potokaki beach is just opposite the studios, and there is a private part of it intended for Maritsa's guests. It is one of the beaches in Samos we loved the most. You can relax there without any noise around, and sometimes you really feel you are on you own. You can choose either to lie on the sunbeds Manolis has provided (with umbrellas) or to sit under the shade of the beautiful trees. At night, from our studio, all we could hear were the waves of he sea. Also the location of Maritsa Studios is perfect.You can find a mini-market with everything you need and a couple of tavernas within 5 minutes walk from the studios. Pythagorio, with its lovely harbour and the small streets and traditional shops, is very close. We rented a scooter but we also loved to walk there. It was about 30 minutes walk among olive trees and ancient ruins, really unforgettable. By scooter, it takes 5 minutes to go there. In the evening we also loved to go to Ireon, a very nice village with a lot of fish tavernas and friendly people (from Potokaki and Maritsa studios, it was 10 minutes by scooter), and to Chora, 5 minutes. We were so sad to leave, it was the most relaxing holiday ever, and we are so happy we met Manolis and his studios. We will for sure be back one day!…
