“The Greece you feared might have disappeared.........”
Reviewed 7 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

person found this review helpful

My wife had been nagging me for 20 years to revisit Greece and in the intervening years I'd had friends come back from the places you've heard of and they seemed to be losing what made me fall in love with Greece first time round - the Minor Cyclades has restored that faith and I'd have no hesitation returning here.
We stayed with Leonidas and Maria for 6 days and it was absolutely perfect on every level. When we were collected by the man himsefl after a 9-hour seacat journey from hell, we wondered just how far out of civilisation we were heading. We neednt have feared as the island is tiny and the walk to the nearest taverna must have been, ooh, seven minutes or so? That particular taverna, at the little harbour down in front of Stella's, also hosts a Greek music night on occasions and when we popped in late on the Friday night, who should we find behind the mike other than our genial host!
The village has everything though the first sight of clear blue water and golden sand as you walk down through the village staggered me every time. There are regular buses to the most popular beaches at Finikas and Pori taking no longer than 10 minutes and hourly kaiki making the same runs as well as across the strait to Kato Koufonisia. Restaurants are plentiful, the food very reasonably priced and of good quality whilst I was most surprised to find a wide range of Greek microbrews on sale at To Kyma (great home-made doughnuts) and especially at Kalamia, best night-time bar on the island along with Scholio.
And back to the apartment(s). Spotless, well-equipped, peaceful and cool. Guests will be presented with a little raki on arrival and should you bump into Leonidas or Maria in town (inevitable!) you will be invited to join them for a delicious rakomelo. Or get a pillion ride home on his motor-bike as my daughter did; or have his neighbour stop her car for you and cram you all in for another lift..........it's that kind of place where it only takes a few days to embed yourself......and becomes a wrench to leave.
We felt refreshed, invigorated.....and just a little bit younger again. Thank you so much Leonidas and Maria. I have a hunch we'll be seeing you again.

“Very beautiful apartment in an amazing island”
Reviewed 3 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We stayed at Stella's apartment in Koufounissi. The apartment is a 10-mins walk from town, the road is very quiet and lit (they are setting up lights). The apartment is very beautiful, new with A/C and nice balconies.
The host was very nice - he came to pick us up at the port when we arrived and dropped us when we left, even if it was early in the morning.

The island of Koufounissi is really nice. It has the best sea and clearest water we have seen in the Cyclades, and we also had the best fish and seafood there. Definitely worth visiting.

“We would come back!”
Reviewed 19 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Our stay was very pleasant. The room was as advertised.. Nice and clean with a kitchenette and fridge and everything you need. We had a balcony with a view on the sea and a quaint harbour. The location of the room is a bit outside of the Chora but not far at all. The walk to/from the city takes just about 10 minutes on foot. Leonidas picked us up from the port and took us back when it was time to leave the island. He and his wife were welcoming and available for advice/recommendations for beaches/restaurants/cafes etc. We spent there 8 nights and enjoyed it very much. We would come back to Stella's home!
