Country style flat set in beautiful surroundings. Perfect for getting away from the hustle and bustle of city life but close enough to enjoy the excitement and fun of Poros and the many fantastic places the area offers.

The space

This quiet apartment for two/three people is tucked away on the ground floor in an olive grove on the outskirts of Galatas a short distance from the sea and the island of Poros. The studio is spacious for two,comfortable for three, has a fully equipped kitchen and air conditioning.There is additional seating areas outside from where you have tantalising glimpses of a sea views and beautiful warm sunsets. Goat bells ripple in the surrounding hills and olive trees and citrus trees are scattered over the grounds in which you are free to wander. With the studio being so close to the island of Poros (15 min by car and boat) and the village of Galatas (5min by car) this location offers the perfect option of the tranquil countryside with quite solitude or busy village life, water sport centers and bustling nightlife. A car is recommended as a must.


olive Branch Studio is found in an olive grove on the edge of the quiet village of Galatas. The island of Poros is separated from the Peloponnes village of Galatas by a narrow stretch of blue crystal water which gives this area it's breathtaking uniqueness. Water buses skip between the two giving you the best of their contrasting worlds. The quiet atmosphere of Galatas offers excellent tavernas at reasonable prices overlooking this amazing view of Poros. There are sandy beaches and pebbly coast lines to be explored near Galatas..(some small secluded pebble areas which are in Galatas or others which are big beaches either sand or pebble with amazingly clean blue sea
,10 minutes by car). If you like wandering there are lanes and path ways to be discovered and the nearby 'Devils Gorge'. Opposite Poros has everything a lively holiday maker will need, beach bars, water sports, shops, tavernas, narrow passages to get lost in, rocking bars at night, discos. But hidden away are also sandy coves and old monasteries.
By car you can visit many famous places easily.. The amazing town of Nafplio (1 hour) Argos (1.30) The amazing ancient theatre of Epidaurus (40 minutes) the dormant volcano of Methana (25minutes) Hermioni(1 hour)The Saronic islands and many many more.
All the choices are here depending on your mood.

Guest access

Free to walk around the grounds and garden.

Interaction with guests

Depending on you,the guest. If you want peace and solitude I will respect this and try not to intrude. If you wish to chat or have a coffee that's great. Most of my guests end up drinking wine on my balcony!! The only time I might intrude is by watering the plants....

I stayed with my daughters 3yo and 10mo. First of all Margaret was amazing! A very warm and welcoming woman. She greeted us with a basket of fruit and wine and made sure everyday that everything was ok, but was very discreet at the same time. You need to have some sort of transportation. The place was excellent for us! I loaded and unloaded everything outside my doorstep. The flat is fully equipped with appliances and a solar water heater. The location is very cool temperature wise. Will definitely visit again. Margaret thank you for making us feel right at home. Me and the girls miss you already!

Marguerite and her daughter are absolutely lovely! So kind and welcoming. She made us an excellent Greek coffee upon our arrival and also gave us great tips for beaches, and we wish we had had more time to chat with them. The apartment is tucked away in an enchanting olive grove, with a far-off view of the sea and mountains, but very close to the shops, cafes, and restaurants of Galatas and Poros. Great for a relaxing getaway in the Greek countryside.

We had wonderful stay at Margarite's place. Our goal was so stay away from crowd and we achieved it in Galatas. The town is very sweet with restaurants and shops and nice beach, but at the same time very quite and you will never hear loud parties there. If you want to have one, you can go to Poros which is just in front and it takes 1 minute by boat. The house is situated 15 minutes walk away from the centre in a village-like surrounding. Margarite became our friend and she showed us around. We took us to the best beach I ever been 15 minutes away by car Psifta. Going there is a must! I suggest to have a car to explore the area. It's a shame we didn't have one, but taxi is affordable. Margarite and her daughter have many cats and one beautiful dog. You will have a great time in that house for sure.

our host was great. Margaret welcomed us with a big smile and open arms. She sounded great already from before on the phone, and it was verified in person. She made us feel right at home, and gave us so many great infos on where to go, how to get there, where to eat, and what to see...she just verified what she shows us in her home's presentation. it was a great place to to see the area and yet to be close to the port and yet you have the peace and quiet of the greek country side...amongst the olive trees. you manage to switch off . we are happy to have found our place to stay in the area....like a home....and hope to enjoy it next time for a longer period of time .

Marguerite is an amazing host. She made us feel immediately at home and gave us supurb tips on places to visit. Right after we arrived she invited us to accompany het to see a play at the ancient thatre of epidavrus. That was quite an amazing experience. The house is very well located, close to everything (beautiful beaches, supermarket, ferry), yet it is hidden enough so that you really get the feeling of being in a little paraside, with the most beautiful view + the company of lovely cats (as a matter of fact, we will be adopting one). I can recommend this place 100% if you're looking for a place where to relax and want to enjoy the many things to do and the beautiful places to visit in the vicinity.

Marguerite var svært hjelpsom og møtte oss da vi ikke fant fram den dagen vi kom. Leiligheten var stor nok for oss to, men vi trodde at soveværelse var et eget rom. Vi foretrekker hvert vårt soverom fordi jeg snorker. Fredelige omgivelser og på grunn av beliggenheten var det som Marguerite fortalte oss, helt nødvendig med bil. Dette er et fint utgangspunkt for å ta turer i området. Vi fikk med oss mange steder: Nafplion, Hydra, Poros, Methana og Trizina med Djevelens bro mm. Vi hadde noen dager som var i varmeste laget for oss, men vi hadde et hyggelig opphold og gode minner å se tilbake til.

Thank you for your kind words. I am sorry you were expecting a separate bedroom but I do mention in the advert that it is open plan....I am so happy that you had a good stay though and managed to see the surrounding area even though the weather was a little too hot for you.....Hope to see you again
