Oh wow, that's how I would describe the hosts of Christos Studios! I was late, as my bag got lost, and Anastasia's parents were soo friendly, saying that I wouldn't have to hurry at all. That they were there. And so it was during my whole stay. Christos and Katherina were always there, ready to help, giving great tipps about this beautiful island. They supported me with my struggles with my missing bag, and Katherina surprised me with delicious home made sweets every day. Christos and Katherina love to host people, they love making them happy and they are really doing a great job!
It's a pity I haven't met Anastasia, as she was in Athen, but she, as well, supported me from there, and gave me the feeling that I could call her anytime if there were problems. Wow!
The Christos Studios are situated on the hillside in beautiful Zola. It's so nice to live here, as you feel very local, apart from any tourists (haha says a tourist herself). The whole entrance is full of flowers, lovingly arranged, as both of them love flowers and plants (Christos has his own vegetable garden!). The room is exactly as on the pictures. A little bit dark, as there is a pergola just outside the room, but this has the advantage that the room never gets really hot. There is an air conditioning anyway. And in the evening, you can open both doors, which gets you a lovely fresh air current to your room and lots of light as well. It is really calm. If you want, you can cook a meal in the little kitchen and eat under the pergola, or you go and have a meal in the lovely tavern just nearby.
You have to know that you absolutely need a car to get there, and, if you don't want to make a "hike" , you also need a car to go to the beach, but it is only a 5 minutes drive, and you are at the Kiryaki beach or Francini beach, which is really great, clear blue water, and very quiet. But I was so happy to have a car, as I could explore all the beautiful beaches on this Island (such as famous Myrtos Beach i.e.), and every ride is truly magical, so is the whole island!
Anyone who want's to live with very dear hosts, feeling at home at the very moment you get there,you should stay at Christos Studios.
Thank you soo much, Anastasia, Katherina and Christos, your are the best and I will never forget this beautiful stay!
