We stayed in Eva's beautiful apartment for a week and could not possibly have had a better time. The apartment is exactly as Eva describes it - except even better! It's beautifully laid out, extremely comfortable, clean, and quiet with outstanding views from the terrace at any time of day but especially sunset. Eva herself is a wonderful host, very warm and welcoming and full of helpful, practical suggestions of things to do and places to eat in or visit. She also advised us on where to rent a car (from Rent and Go in Katapola, very efficient and easy to deal with, good value and excellent service). Tholaria is idyllic - very peaceful, with warm and welcoming residents, and a number of excellent tavernas, a great breakfast spot, a bakery, and a store where you'll find everything you need. If you love nature, there are a number of beautiful walks to take throughout Amorgos as well as gorgeous, quiet beaches. You couldn't ask for a better place for a relaxing, stress-free break, we can't recommend the apartment, town, or island highly enough!
All around: Great
Eva is a fantastic host, and the apartment is comfortable with a great view of the valley and sea.
Tholaria was exactly what we were looking for. A quiet corner of the island, yet well connected to beaches, food market, and nearby cities. Aegiali is a short, ~30 minute walk along a path.
Would highly recommend to those looking for a low-key, relaxing vacation, who also don't mind some walking. We look forward to returning in the future.
"We had an absolutely FAN...
"We had an absolutely FANTASTIC holiday on the gorgeous island of Amorgos. Of 13 Greek islands we have visited, this comes joint first (with Symi, which is more easily accessible and therefore more touristy - the ferry ride from Pireaus to Amorgos is totally worth it) and the location of this property at the top of a wonderful hilltop village, with stunning views, is outstanding. The mountain walk from Thoralia (just out the back door!) to Lagkada village on the opposite hillside is completely unforgettable, and rates as my favourite walk in years and years of going to Greek islands for holidays (NB I am not a keen walker!!!)
We couldn't have had a nicer time. The owner was lovely (the perfect multi-lingual, very knowledgeable hostess and a link to everyone in the village!) and the accommodation was perfect for our needs. In our opinion, you do need transport to explore every corner of the island, which is about 30kms long (car or moped), but this is very easy to come by and much cheaper than on other islands.
We thoroughly recommend this property and Amorgos to anyone (except the old and infirm, although their old people manage it just fine!), and once you have experienced authentic village life in Thoralia (nicest Greek people on any island we have been to), you would definitely not want to be staying in the more touristy resorts of Aegali or Katapola, even though they are nice to visit."

"Me and my boyfriend stayed in one of Eva's apartments for a week in August and we had a wonderful time! The studio was so cute and very clean. The village is up on a hill but all the cafes, restaurants are just a few minutes walk down the one small road. We rented a scooter but buses go up and down to the beach several times a day and it's very easy to take them. Eva was great and often brought us freshly baked greek sweets! The view from her house is amazing, and all the people are so friendly. There is tons of exploring to do in Amorgos and the most beautiful beaches (for this you need a car or scooter) We really enjoyed every part of this vacation and really hope to return!!!"

"This is The Place! We spent a lovely week at this fantastic location in an apartment that could be described as "romantic and peace of mind-ish" with a marvellous view of the Valley and to the Sea a fiew kilometers down the road. The familiar and uniqe service provided by the lovely host Eva is nothing else than just superb. There is no doubt, we will definitely come back and....of course highly recommend this apartment to all of our friends."

"Amazing studio located in the charming, traditional village of Tholaria, decorated with taste and equipped with everything we needed. Great terasse with really nice view to the sea and the valley. The owner was very hospitable, friendly and helpful; she gave us all the information we needed. We had a really great time there and we would definitely go back!"
You can make walks on foot or by car around the village. There are trails that give vieulles other villages of Aegiali or the magnificent sites to see the sun couch.
