your Stau with you was wonderful. For all who are wondering if this place is as lovely as the pictures tell: we can absolutely recommend Amalia's place AND her hospitality.
We stayed in the studio and due to works in the studio we spend some nights in the house as well. Both places are beautifully furnished, the kitchens are very well equipped, sleeping rooms with cupboards and space to store away suitcases, bathrooms are newly furbished and everything was perfectly clean. We felt super-comfortable and at home (we stayed 17 nights). The outside area is incredible, the barbecue is amazing and we often spent time there when coming back from our tours across the island for reading and preparing the dinner. The studio even had a balcony with a beautiful view and sun in the morning, a perfect place for two to have breakfast.
Katochori isn't a small sleepy and friendly village which was situated perfectly to explore the island. You need a car but then everything is within reach. A supermarket is 3 minutes away, there is a beautiful small and quiet bay which Amalia will recommend to you just 20 minutes away, restaurants within 10-20 minutes reach.... As we had our7 months old baby with us we enjoyed the quietness, however, if you are looking for a neighborhood to party, Katochori is not the place to stay - there is no bar nor a restaurant or a cafe.
Amalia was extremely helpful and (website hidden) he had prepared a baby bed which was a proper bed, with linnen and everything you could think of, there was a chair for the baby, a microwave, a mixer... She gave us recommendations for the island and whenever we sent her a message with questions or needs she came immediately to see us and help.
We just recommend everybody to stay there for a enjoyable, relaxing holiday with a lovely host.
