– Michalis Studios –
A perfect little getaway in the Dodecanese
– Michalis Studios –
a warm welcome
I have so much to tell you about this beautiful island. It’s tiny, but it has so much to offer. The people are extremely friendly and made our stay even nicer. Today I’ll just start by telling you where we slept during our time in Lipsi, and I will work from here soon, I promise.
It was just past noon when we arrived in Lipsi, we traveled with Dodekanisos Seaways and it was a pleasure to see other islands from the water. We felt most welcome because when we arrived the mayor and the owner of Michalis Studios were already waiting for us.
There are no direct flights to Lipsi, to visit Lipsi it’s a good idea to take a direct flight to Kos or Rhodes and then take a ferry to Lipsi. Thomas and I choose to travel through Kos because it’s so easy to visit other islands from Kos. From here it’s only a 2-hour boat ride to Lipsi.
Michalis was so kind to bring us to our apartment. Michalis Studios offers 7 beautiful and authentic Greek apartments. They are fully equipped with a kitchen, bathroom, a large bed (perfect since Dutch people are the tallest on the planet) and two picturesque balconies.
One of the balconies has a lovely typical Greek view over the outskirts of the village, nature and a picturesque small blue and white church. The other balcony -which was my favorite- had a beautiful view overlooking the small harbor of Lipsi. We had the only apartment that had a view over the harbor, so we were very lucky to spend some time here.
– Kairis Bakery –
a traditional Greek bakery
Although our apartment had a fully equipped kitchen there was no need for us to go grocery shopping, except for some bottles of water. You can’t drink straight from the tap, but it’s fine if you use it to brush your teeth.
The bakery that is just around the corner is called Kairis Bakery and has a large range of all sorts of bread and traditional Greek salads and treats. Besides that, they have a small menu for breakfast and lunch. They have a lot of vegetarian options and even for me as a vegan, there was plenty to eat.
Although Lipsi is very small, there are plenty of things to do. It’s a beautiful island which is perfect for nature and beach lovers. Michalis Studios are located just outside the harbor, the city center is a few minuted by foot, just like the supermarket. Even the closest beaches are just a few minutes away. So it’s very easy to explore the surroundings.
So there is no need to rent a bicycle when you plan to stay in the area. If you want to see more of the island, Michalis will be happy to drive you around. And if you are lucky you can join him on one of his fishing trips with his private boat.
I was just here for a few days, but Lipsi has a piece of my heart. We felt most welcome and loved nature and the beautiful beaches. Lipsi does make you feel like you are on a private island. So it’s the perfect getaway when you want to have some peace.
