I'm a writer and editor of books, very happy to call the island of Tilos home. Love walking, swimming. You can visit my 'Octopus in my Ouzo' website for more information on Tilos.
We had a really wonderful time on Tilos staying at Jennifer's house. She was very helpful and welcoming and gave us loads of helpful information and advice which enhanced our enjoyment of this beautiful island. The accomodation itself is simple but effective and there are stunning views from the roof terrace and walks to mountains and beaches from your front door. The village itself is very unspoilt and we have taken far too many photos of blue doorways and flights of white steps! The village shop is well stocked and friendly and the local restaurants excellent so we felt that we lacked for nothing. If you are looking for a peaceful and rejuvenating holiday in beautiful surroundings, this is the place!
Thanks so much, Clare - it was great to meet you all, and I'm so pleased you enjoyed your stay in Megalo Horio!
I was met by the charming Antonis straight from the ferry and taken to my apartment, which was a short drive there. Just outside the main village of Megalo Horio. The apartment is a good size and sits outside the road that leads to the beach a 5 minute walk away.
The best thing is the peace and quiet, and the constant distant sound of the beach gently crashing onto the shore, which you can hear from the terrace while enjoying breakfast in the morning or at night with a vino or 3 :-), your never alone as there's plenty of goats and various bird and animal life that goes about their business.
There's a couple of taverna's down by the beach that do great, fish and goat dishes. Plenty of super walks to various beaches like Eristos,Skafi and other places of interest. The village is great for wondering around and stopping for a drink or a meal at night. The village store has everything you can ask for, but they didn't have dental floss, but the lovely Eleftheria kindly gave me some of her's wrapped in cling film :-)))
Jennifer who l didn't managed to catch up with was a wealth of information before and during my trip, may l add that you must go purchase her book " Drowning In Honey " as its a terrific read and describes the true beauty of Tilos. I forgot to mention the stars at night, so bright and awe inspiring and the perfect way to guide you home to you pit.
There's no air con, and can get a bit hot at night, but l prefer no A/C. I'm a bit of tea junky, so not having a kettle and a teapot (yes l'm old fashioned) can be a bit tiresome boiling from a giant saucepan each time, oh and that frying pan (l also start the day with eggs and bacon) was a mare to clean each time, it's safe to say its definitely non stick lol.
Apart from that l had a very relaxing time and would recommend both Antonis Apartments and the gorgeous island of Tilos, think l'll return again for sure.
Antonis also kindly dropped me off to the port for my return to Rhodes.
Thanks for the great feedback, Paul (especially the recommendation of Falling in Honey!!). Will mention the kettle and pan to Antoni. Glad to hear you might be back on Tilos someday.
Antonis apartments are very nice and confortable, situated in a beatiful area of the island. We a had a wonderful experience, both Antonis and Jennifer were very kind. We will come back for sure.
Thank you for your lovely comments! So please you enjoyed it.
Although I didn't meet Jennifer at my arrival, we had organized all before by mails and texts, so the check-in was easy and wihout problems. The location and the house correspond precisely to their description. The appartament was very clean and enough-equipped. I'm really happy about my permanence at Antonis Apartments
We had a wonderful time in Tilos. We felt welcome from the moment that we met Jennifer. She is a great host. She is really easy going and relaxed. The communication with her was perfect, fast and clear. She arranged pick up and drop off at the harbour, even at 5.30 in the morning! And we had diner together the first night :)!
Jennifer has a nice house in a quite village. It's a basic house, but has everything you need. The roof terrace gives you a stoning view and is perfect for having breakfast, diner or just a drink. Jennifer even allowed us to sleep at the roof terrace. That was absolutely great, because of the warm weather. Beautiful to sleep under a sky full of stars :).
Close to the house is a supermarket which also has fresh bread each morning. The busstop for the local bus can you find almost next to the supermarkt. An easy and cheap way to go to the harbour or to the beaches. There is also a beautiful - almost privat - beach where you can go by foot in about 30-45 minuts. Great to have a swim after walking :)!
If you like a authentic Greek experience on Tilos, just go to Jennifers place :)!
Everything was perfect, spotless, quiet, Very near to the beach and the main village. Antonis, The owner, was Very friendly.
It si a perfect option for visit The island
I'm so pleased! Antonis was VERY impressed with your Greek... Sorry I didn't get to meet you but I'm really pleased you enjoyed your stay. Thanks for the great review.
Jennifer and her partner were very charming. They were considerate, so lovely to chat to and generally great guests. They are very much welcome back any time they wish to visit Brighton again.
Jennifer and Yiannis were lovely, easy going and relaxed guests, it was a pleasure to have them in my house :-) I had arrived back late from a series of gigs and had equipment all over and was still washing bed clothes when they arrived too, they were very understanding and always easy to communicate with. All the best to them on their travels. Jamie
Jennifer's partner and his mother stayed for a couple days and were an absolute delight to have stay. They left the cottage very neat and tidy.
It was the 2nd time I hosted Jennifer and as the first everything was great. She was a wonderful guest. It will be a pleasure hosting her
Jennifer was an wonderful guest. so polite and kind was nice having her in our house
