The appartments are very nice and have a good standard. We had a fantastic big balcony. We loved to be there. It´s located near everyting, shops, restaurants, car- rentals and to the beach. The owners were very friendly and looked after you and helped you if you needed anything. We highly recomend this place.

been 10 days at Lia Sofia, the place is well placed in the hearth of Stalis next to all the shops, restaurants and beach. Quiet and clean. The only down is that the AC is charged apart for 6 euros per day and the place of infested with mosquitos. The Wi-fi wasn't great.
