Had a real relaxing and fun time at the Matheos Apartments. The hospitality of family is great and Helen is full of advise of local places that are suitable to your own tastes. We visited the nearby Picturesque green beach and Helen arranged taxi for us. (10euro journey) . A great friendly crowd around the pool and nice tasty snacks...

Matheos Apartments is an absolutely fabulous place to stay. The setting was perfect, small and friendly but at the start of the village with loads of lovely restaurants a short stroll way.

Got back yesterday after a thoroughly relaxing time at the Mateous. Helen George Costas and the girls made the stay especially special. The rooms are clean, maid service daily, change of bedding and towels regular. Plus hot water morning and night, which is unheard of in Greece. We even had a power shower! This was the best holiday for many...

Arrived home Sunday after a great week in the sun at Matheos Apartments. Helen George and the rest of the hardworking family make this place something special.

Just back from a fantastic week at these apartments. They are small, family run and absolutely delightful. Helen, George and their family go that extra mile to ensure everybody is happy. It's a small but lovely pool area and as there are so few apartments, sunbeds were never an issue. I think I can honestly say that we have never...

When you're looking for holiday accommodation these days, often your 2nd "stop" is Trip Advisor, to check out what you've found. As in life there are some reviews that you must take with a pinch of salt. This family owned & run, simple, basic Greek holiday accommodation, is in my opinion superb value. The family will do anything for you,...

We have just returned from a week at the Matheos Appartments, this is an amazing place run by a amazing family. From the moment we arrived everyone made us feel welcome including the other guest some of whom had been here on many previous occasions and others who like us were on their first visit.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
This places comes with a small, kidney-shaped pool that gives you excellent views up into the mountains. There's also a poolside bar serving drinks and snacks. And it's here, around the pool, that the owners put on a barbecue once a week. It's pretty simple here in terms of facilities, but the complex has nabbed a prime spot in a peaceful village, and it's all within walking distance.Rooms and studios have a kitchenette with 2 electric rings and a fridge, there's a shower and either a balcony or terrace, air-con is at an extra charge. The maid service is 6 times a week with towel and linen change twice weekly. 1 Bedroom apartment sleep up to 4 with a double bed or twin beds and 2 extra beds. Studio sleeps up to 3Excellent views and a friendly atmosphere make the Matheos Studios stand out from the crowd. There's a small pool paired with a snack bar, plus a clutch of tavernas within walking distance. The Matheos Studios are in the tiny village of Piskopiano, which is set on the slopes of Mount Harakas. Despite its small size, the village is a bit of a foodie haven. There are plenty of tavernas a minute's walk from the studios, a lot of which have terraces with panoramic sea views. When you want to hit the sand, Hersonissos Beach is a 20-minute walk downhill. The complex has a friendly feel thanks to its owners George, Kosta and Helen, who go out of their way to make you feel welcome. They put on a weekly barbecue by the small pool. You get mountain views from here, and there's a snack bar serving breakfast and light meals. There are 14 studios and apartments, all of which have very simple kitchenettes, with 2 electric rings, a fridge and a kettle. Each one has the added bonus of a balcony or terrace, which looks out over the mountains, pool or sea. ... more   less
