Our holiday 18th August to 25th August 2013 Des & Liz from Sheffield, UK

Hi guys

Just back from Thassos (yesterday eve)....awesome holiday. Stayed in the Smaragdi II Studios (adjacent to Emerald Star hotel).....we had a fantastic view of Golden Beach from our balcony (sun on it until just after 7pm in eve). The apartment was very good and the owner Costos (and wife and staff) friendly and helpful. This is not meant to be a negative point but an observation/info.....the cooking facilities were sufficient for very simple meals/breakfast.....but who wants to cook when you have plenty of nice restaurants around (particularly in Scala Potemia). Good value too!

Hired a scooter for 3 full days from Moto Rent Golden Beach (near Anna's Supermarket) and zipped down the East coast as far as Livadi Beach, and up to Thassos town (Limenas)....obviously visiting most of beaches in between. Scooters in very good condition, helpful friendly staff, and the driving on the island is of a good/very good standard. I don't recommend a scooter for non-bikers though...roads steep and twisty.

Went to Vigli's restaurant about 3 times (about 5/10 mins from studios)....the disco/dancing on friday eve was great.....haven't 'strutted our stuff' for a while :o

What a beautiful place, we were sad to leave....the week shot past!!

Would we go back? You bet you!!

I have a question for you veterans.....who is the old man with the white cap who frequents Vigli's and chats up all the women??? :)

If you haven't been to Thassos......GO!!

Des & Liz :)
