About Periklis Thivaios

We are a couple from Poland and Greece. We met in South Africa and have lived in the UK, USA, Canada and Mexico.

We were living a relatively comfortable professional life until we realised that we spend too much time 'buying' money while the only thing that money cannot buy is time.

We decided to settle to the sun-kissed coast of Argolida on the North-East of the Peloponnese, only a couple of hours away from Athens and start an eco-friendly business with a focus on hospitality, local produce and travel-based experiences.

Why Periklis Thivaios chose Poros Island

The property is on the mainland (just outside the town of Galatas), offering easy access and gorgeous views to the island of Poros, away from the noise and the busy streets. Our 4 acre hill stretches almost all the way to the sea, allowing easy access to beaches on Poros and the mainland.

Poros is the closest one can get to a traditional Greek island setting from the convenience and connectivity of Athens' International Airport. White washed houses, traditional tavernas and relaxed walks, only an hour away by ferry or 2.5 hours away by car.

Come and enjoy the silence, whilst being a stone's throw away from the vibe.

BEST part of my European tour

  • 5 of 5

My stay at this beautiful, spacious studio was the best part of my European tour! From the very beginning when I first contacted the owners, I was sold! Amazing customer service from day one and continued till they waved goodbye as I boarded the ferry back to Athens. I could not have imagined a better way to have spent my time in Greece. Minutes from multiple beaches, a short walk into town and a boat ride away to Poros Island. The studio was spacious and was equipped with everything that you would ever need. The view is unbelievable!!! Daily you are guaranteed a beautiful sunrise or sunset and bright blue skies. The balcony was perfect to have coffee, lunch or just read and admire the views. Michalis and his family were so amazing, I felt like family when I left! Thank you so much for such a fabulous time, and I CAN NOT WAIT to come back to this little slice of heaven:)

Excellent choice long term or short term

  • 5 of 5

We took a leap of faith...having searched the web for nearly a year we settled for a long term agreement with the Michalis and his daughter, who was my main contact prior to arrival...Thank you Ergina... We have been in our apartment for 10 working on 11 weeks now and are very happy... We wake every morning to the rising sun, we swim in the sea just below the studios at our own private Plaka... The apartment is large and well equipped, and the owner as generous as the day is long, All of our needs have been meet... We can be in the center of Galatas, for shopping, in 15 minutes walking or call a cab and do it in 5... We have the best view of the famed and far more costly Poros, and we are not surrounded by the throngs of tourist that parade in Poros, but we can play that game any time we want... What we wanted was a place to live for a year, a place where we could become part of the local community...as to this we still have a ways to go, but we are meeting people daily becoming more comfortable in our surroundings, and I can say thanks in large part to the wonderful family that has helped to make this happen, Thank you, Michalis

Fantastic seaview

  • 5 of 5

This property has an astonishing seaview, the landlord was very kind and very helpful. You find many things you need quite near in the small town of Galatas. It is woth going to this property and we already decided to come back. The property is really big, so you have enough space even to stay indoors. Next to the property there is the small island of Poros, which you see from the large balcony. There you can reach several beautiful beaches within few minutes.

Thanks a lot, it was really beautiful.

The studio is located on a hillside of the Peloponnese side with unhindered views of Poros island and the Aegean. There is easy access to a number of local sandy beaches.

Close to historic attractions, including the UNESCO WHS Ancient Theatre of Epidaurus, Theseus' island of birth and Demosthenes' burial grounds. One day excursions to the islands of Hydra and Spetses can be easily organised, as well as day trips to the romantic city of Nafplion (Greece's first Capital City, before Athens).

Accessible by sea and by land. Poros is connected with a frequent ferry and catamaran service to the port of Athens and can be accessed via the canal of Corinthus.
