Having missed our visit last year because of the Pandemic we were warmly welcomed back this year for our 8th visit. Vaggelis & Vasso are great hosts and this year we were invited to join in with two wonderful family celebrations. Thankyou Vaggelis & Vasso. We will see you next year.

Arriving at Shine Studios is like coming home .The warm welcome from Vasso, Vaggelis and Morgan (The Dog) is wonderful. The spacious studio is very comfortable and includes everything we need for our 3 week stay. Every year there is something new. This year a new fridge was installed during our stay. Thankyou Vasso and Vaggelis for all the food. We will see you next year.

We stayed here for three nights in two rooms with three adults and two children. The rooms are very pleasant and very clean. The garden is very nice and the owners live next door and are very hospitable (except they didn’t want the children touching the flowers). Unfortunately, Shine Studios is not designed with families in mind as the whole experience with our children was very stressful. Apart from that, I recommend it for couples.

Shine studios respecting the accommodation and the environment, all the while hosting its guests, make sure that the place is attentive, clean and at the same time intimate and accessible for all. To touch and become part of the landscape the visitor is something we desire and pursue, but always with respect to him. Finally, Shine Studios has been evaluated by its guests, families and non-residents, for its excellent hospitality and serenity.

We love Lesvos but one of the reasons we keep returning is to stay at Shine Studios with the wonderful hosts Vasso and Vaggelis. We enjoyed many evenings sat on our lovely balcony watching the birds, bats, a pair of owls, tree frogs and hedgehogs. We'll be back next year.

Another superb stay at Shine Studios this year! No complaints at all. Our room is spacious and is cleaned every day by our host Vasso. Clean towels daily and the bed is made too! The best thing for me is the walk in shower ♥️🇬🇷

Our second stay this year from 30-8-2017 to 19-9-2017, as always a warm greeting from Vasso and Vangellis to their immaculately kept studio no 2 on the ground floor. Wonderful gardens with a wealth of insects, butterflies, birds, bats and maybe a tree frog. A nice big comfortable bed with linen changed every other day, superb bathroom with a power shower and fresh towels every day. On our return in the afternoon we always found a little food gift of savories or cake and sometimes fruit. Looking forward to our return on the 19-4-2018 for 17 nights.

Our fifth stay and there are reasons why we keep returning. 1. Lovely hosts and great hospitality. 2.Very comfortable studio (1st photo above). 3.Balcony views of garden and surrounding countryside. 4.Walk to beach or square in 15mins. 5.Walk to see Storks nest (spring and early summer) in Papiana and visit the little ouzerie in Kerami. Why wouldn't we be planning a sixth visit to Shine Studios.
