This was me and my girlfriend's first time to Thassos, It was a beautiful island that still has it's original greek culture and mainly family run restaurants. Aberdeen Studios was much much more than we expected! The rooms had all the basics needed for a self catering Holiday. A Fridge, Cooking stoves and all to go with it. We arrived to find the room in Spotless condition, Zoi one of the assistants is very thorough in cleaning the room on a 2 daily basis with sheet changes twice a week. Each room has very effective air conditioning which costs 7 Euros a day, we found it was an essential especially as I find it hard to sleep in the heat and its more comfortable to come into a cool room after a hot day in the sun!. There's also a safe in each room at a cost of 1 Euro a day. The only bad this about the rooms is that the beds are a bit stiff.
The studios itself is a 10 minute walk from the ferry port and 15 minutes to walk into town. There are is a mini supermarket within 5 minutes of the studios or a larger one between the town and the studios. The studios can only hold 20 guests at a time so its nice and quiet. It caters to all ages and Vasallis and Carol (the owners) are extremely friendly and will do anything and everything they can for you. Bar prices are very good with special offers on drinks. The pool and surrounding areas are always kept very clean and it's a very relaxing environment to be in. As you can tell from other reviews, 'The Boss' as Vasallis calls himself is a complete nutcase and we found ourselves in hysterical laughter every night at the bar. He puts on productions and films it as he is an amateur film producer and in fact a member of a very famous band in Greece. He casts willing guests as the stars and it's great entertainment! You have to experience it to really see what I mean. However this may not be to the taste of everyone, but we found it hilarious and its a great getting to know the other guests and saying hello to them all at the poolside the next day and chatting. Visit their website if you want to see some videos aberdeen-studios.gr I believe.
FOOD - When I go away I like to indulge myself into the culture and food that the place is best known for. There are many restaurants on the island. We wanted to try the fresh fish and seafood that was caught locally so we asked Carol, the Thomson rep (who was available often and very helpful) and also the locals. They all recommended the same place. A family run Taverna called 'Simi'. The food was delicious and the service was extremely good and they were all very friendly. Food ranged from traditional homemade Greek favorites to Fresh fish including fillets of fresh Swordfish at very reasonable prices.
There is so much to say about Aberdeen Studios and the Island that i'd be here for hours! but we got back today and we're already planning to save to go back there again next year!
