We stayed in the Messakti Village on Icaria in July 2007. The apartment is located between Armenistis and Gialiskari (about 1,5 km either way). The apartments are really nice, they're spacious and they are really clean. Everything is kept spotless and the staff are really friendly. If you want to hire a car you can do that through reception. I can recommend hiring a car if you want to explore the island. Icaria is a quiet place with only 7000 inhabitants. The roads here aren't that great. It's a lovely place to walk. Icaria isn't a spectacular place if you're looking for nature or culture but it's really Greek and if you want a taste of Greek life then this is the place to come.
