This was our first time and Despina&Manolis made the visit memorable. The accommodation is spotlessly clean. Being in Sami makes it ideal for visiting all areas too. There is a fantastic bakery just next door and the walk to the beach and restaurants is easy and welcome exercise. Friends dropped in to visit and Despina made them feel very welcome....

We only stayed one night at the Kalypso Studios & Apartments, but the visit was made memorable by the wonderful hospitality of Despina and her husband Manolis. We arrived late feeling tired after a long day of travel, but the welcome we received, including the offer of a couple of beers over a friendly chat, lifted our spirits. The next...

We had an amazing time here in Sami. These apartments were in a great location with just a 10 minute walk to the first taverna. Our hosts made us feel very welcome and were very informative to everything the island had to offer. The apartment was just as described, clean, well stocked, fully functional and more.
