Having booked this accommodation, I was worried when I later read the reports (though they were a couple of years old).

My friends were nearby during the fires and checked that Filitsa was still standing for when we arrived. When we arrived my husband realised he had stayed in the studios the first time he came, about ten years ago, but hadn't remembered the name.

The room was the biggest we'd had in Greece. There was a dining table and two chairs and ample facilities and storage space. Bathroom was basic as could be expected but was better than most we'd had in Greece. The rooms were cleaned every other day, though the sheets and towels were only changed once over the two weeks, but that was okay.

Family owners were very friendly though their English was limited. Very quiet area.

Only thing missing is air conditioning in room, though we did hire a fan from the owners.

We were dismayed at first sighting of the studios.

A fellow guest commented that they looked like public lavatories! Both our neighbours' and our studio were dirty, ill-equipped and of a very basic standard. I had to clean the toilet before I could use it.

The cooking rings were filthy. The fridge belonged on a tip - my husband told the rep he wouldn't use it to put pet food in - at risk of being arrested for animal cruelty! The sheets were thin as tissue (mine even had hairs on! - and so did my pillowcase along with a nice muddy stain.) The towels were very old, hard through decades of washing - it's just as well they were dark blue as they were not changed in the 8 days we were there! Also they had to double up as curtains at night or when we wanted to undress, etc., as there were no curtains. The shower was good though!!

Location wise - well if you like to be woken up every morning at approx. 5 o'clock by the 3 cockerels at the back of the studios I suppose you'll be ok.

The hotel staff were ok for the first day till we complained to the rep - after this their attitude seemed to change.

Unfortunately our apartment joined onto their family accommodation so we heard the shouts and screams and general tantrums of their young grandchild.

The other guests were very patient and long-suffering as we ourselves were and determined to not let the conditions spoil our hols.

The Filitsa Studios were generally ok, although of a lower standard than you would expect for a 2 star rating.

The rooms were basic, with a mismatch of crockery, and some damaged furniture. Having being self catering in Greece many times before, we were used to the fairly basic bathroom facilities, but the sink leaked, (it had a bucket under it!) The shower tile grout was black, and the window broken. It generally just needed a little bit of money and energy spent on it to tidy it up.

The Greek owner was always cheerful, and the location
peaceful.

If you're looking for a pool and bar for night life, this is not the place to go!

The Filitsia apartments although basic offered everything you needed for a relaxing beach summer holiday cleanliness, friendliness and homeliness.

It really feels that you are on a Greek island with all the sounds and smells of the country wrapped up in the family atmosphere of a well kept and run home.

We would certainly return here it's ideal for couples or slightly older travellers who relish the quiet life whilst still having the get up and go to enjoy themselves when the need arises.
